Lessons Learned

by Jon on November 29th, 2007

So The Game Dame has challenged me to create a list of 5 (gaming) Lessons in 5 years. I’m only about half a month late with my reply so without further delay here they are (in no particular order):

  1. John Gabriel’s Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory.
  2. There are plenty of gamers who are the exact opposite of the previous group.
  3. With time, come changes.
  4. Taking a break from playing every once in a while is extremely healthy.
  5. Gaming, like sex, is much better with a partner (or a 40-man group, if you’re into that).

So I now tag the following 5 Bloggers for their responses:

  1. 1. “Mature” has no age requirement.
    2. Raiding is best left to the fridge, for everyone else there are dailies.
    3. The item you want to drop, only drops when you’re not there.
    4. Voice servers require manners also, so chew your food with your mic off.
    5. Play for fun, unless it’s your job. You will enjoy it more.

  2. Wow, Jon…I’m “IT”? :D

    Okay…I’m going to think about this a bit, and will post the response on the Aerie–before Monday. I hope.

    In the meantime, I’m not reading past Grumpy’s line 1, because I might just plagiarize all his responses if they’re as good as the first. And I’ll stop reading GMW’s article, which is what sent me directly here, instead of me finding this article in my feed reader.

    And I may just tag a few more folks whose opinions I value and respect to do the same…

  3. I almost lol’ed at #5, Jon. It’s probably the #1 reason I play MMORPG’s. Great list.

    And even though the challenge was not specifically directed at me, I posted my own top 5 over at http://zanderfin.blogspot.com.

  4. Phaelia cheats. I was going to add her to my list of 5. :)

    Okay…my article is up. Click my name to see it.

  5. Hmm.

    Very interesting. I shall muse upon this.
