A World of Warcraft Noob’s Diary: Day 1

Gamers Leak: I hate Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games. The general design philosophy seems to be, “Clicking on the same thing fifty times is fun!”. I’ve tried to play MMO’s for years. I keep hearing about people spending hours on these wonderful online experiences, but I never seem to be playing the same game as everyone else.

"Noob’s Diary: Day 1"

holyshit a little late to the party are we?

Constantly slating the graphics of a game that came out in 2004 seems a bit harsh. I know it has had a revamp in certain areas but still the game is over 7 years old now.

Also the undead starting zone is probably the most dull and boring of them all.

A guy who outright HATES playing MMOs giving his impression on playing an MMO. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that no matter what he is going to hate it and bitch, moan, complain and outright bash it at every opportunity.

Nobody should give this, or further articles, your valuable time, there's only going to be one outcome. He's going to hate it with a vengeance and he's going to be very vocal about it.

The article is under the 'OPINION PIECE' section for a reason. Who are you to say what people should do with their valuable time? Let them decide.

I said nobody "should" give their valuable time to read this "article" or any others in its series ... as you can clearly read again. I did not tell people to NOT read it, because people can and will do what they want. My comment simply gives an idea of what to expect and my OPINION on it's worth.

The word 'should' is the past tense of shall, which when used with a corresponding negative it automatically means 'must (not)'.

You clearly implied that nobody (corresponding negative) should read this or any other article because there is "only going to be one outcome". For what it's worth, I'm glad that you expressed your opinion, but your comment sounds more like negative criticism rather than constructive criticism.

Let's not argue semantics here LOL My comment, if anybody actually saw it, will have been understood exactly the way it was meant to be understood, as my opinion on an article and my (I suppose you could say) "recommendation" that the article isn't worth the time it takes to read it. Since I didn't explicitly say NOT to read the article nobody would have taken my comment as implying such.

Forums and comments sections are an informal medium and as such most peoples writing reflects that. So taking an informal comment and analyzing it with a formal style is obviously going to throw up all kinds of implications, grammatical errors and sentence structure issues. On here people type things as they would say them, not as they would if they were writing a thesis for their English degree ;)

But thanks for your comments, I do understand what you're saying, sadly very few other people (if any) would have even noticed, or cared for that matter.
