life is an mmorpg

by tphg

is it any wonder that so many opt out of grinding for gold and leveling up for the sake of leveling up?

I’m so bored of it, and it’s my own fault. Life can be great if you’re open to it, but I’m not. I’m so afraid of people, coming into contact with them. I get debilitating diarrhea when I’ve gotten too anxious thanks to my IBS. I want to smile and laugh and be merry, but 1) I’m afraid and 2) I think people in general are dull. I’m 26 so I can’t have met that many people, but I’m already burnt out from the experience of socializing.

All it is is different faces repeating the same things over and over again; nothing new, or interesting, or topical. No, let’s discuss who’s having a baby shower this weekend or the fun things to do in the sun. I’m just so bored of speaking to these NPC’s; I’ve been bored and have all but stopped conversing with anyone that doesn’t have anything to do with my main quest.

I barely acknowledge my co-workers anymore, putting out the bare minimum amount of energy into maintaining small talk and half smiles. My cell phone stays off so friends can’t call me at their leisure for outings they know I wouldn’t be comfortable in. I try and try and try but I just realized recently that I don’t enjoy any of the things that I go out and do because they all center around sitting and talking about random BS. I’d rather invest my time in my main storyline than waste it on sidequests that RARELY give back any sort of reward (besides drops of exp, but my social stats are permanently damaged so it doesn’t make much of a dent.)

I don’t need anyone to help me die, and that’s all I’m doing here, falling through the air till I hit the ground.

it’s funny that you mention rare drops cause I was thinking about that yesterday, how the hackers manipulate the game so that they can control the flow of rare items and overall luck. I purposefully put myself back in debt to get all the necessary equipment to play mini-games because I’m fed up with questing endlessly. I had the most amazing Sunday, curtains drawn to keep out that pesky sun, as I spent the day switching between zombie killing in dead island and committing acts of terror in GTA’s Liberty City. When the mini-games are more engaging than the main game, then the developers fucked up. Where are life’s developers with their press release/apology for releasing a game riddled with so many bugs and glitches?

come to think of it, if there are developers for Life/Universe/Everything: The Game, then it would make sense that it was just one guy who created existence. He probably created life as we know it in his spare time, between work and school; didn’t have much time to get around to beta testing. He must have lost interest after creating earth and seeing how much effort it took for just one planet, which is why theres so much space but no life anywhere else. So our universe is sitting in a shoe box under some slackers bed.

this what happens when you get a group of friends in college who think “oh it wud be so cool if we made an mmorpg” then spend months trying to find people to code it for them surviving off of donation from supporters. no point in it eventually it’ll get shut down when the sun expands and the oceans boil and the earth is inundated with fire.

I like it when SP members randomly comment on 6-year-old posts.
