Op Ed

Gamasutra - Can Games Become 'Virtual Murder?'.
If, in this hypothetical future, we're capable of stripping away our empathy and compassion to murder a 99% realistic virtual human (and maybe even enjoy it), will we be psychologically any different from people who actually murder those of flesh and blood? Having perhaps unintentionally trained ourselves to become cold-blooded killers through systematic desensitization, will we be emotionally capable of doing the same thing in waking life?

IncGamers - WoW is Killing itself. Thanks Ant.
Yeah, that's right, you heard me. WoW is in the act of committing suicide, and Blizzard don't even know it. Now, before you get all huffy and angry with me (save that for later, you Blizzlovers, you), allow me to give you a bit of background. And when I say background, I mean way, waaaaay back, to the games that inspired WoW in the first place, and to where these games went wrong.

Why the fuck do we give more merit to people's opinions if they're posted on a game site, blog, whatever? The whole concept of what makes someone a 'journalist' on the internet is a joke.

This is just some random douchebag no one's ever heard of posting an 'editorial' as if he's some kind of qualified expert rather than just another random MMO player who's somehow convinced someone to let him post his opinions no an official game site rather than tossing it out into the game forums to fester like the rest of the shit posted by every fanboy or hater of every game ever made.

This is a rant against Everquest and DAoC...nothing more substantive than that.
