I assume the majority of well-adjusted, self-actualized adults do not participate in global chat on MMORPGS. At least I hope they don't. Because it's a veritable tsunami of noncritical-thinking logical fallacies all day, every day, day in and day out. A sort of entitlement fueled by the Dunning–Kruger effect. I often want to suggest to these people that perhaps how they are choosing to play the game is indeed a choice, and that other's may choose to play differently. Invariably the reply would be, "noob" or "gay" because cognitive ability doesn't appear paramount. I am thankful for my own teenagers who are comparative geniuses based on their social troubleshooting skills alone.

Then again, being reminded all day, every day, day in and day out of The Oatmeal's, What it's like to play online games as a grown up is pretty awesome. I usually just giggle to myself, then get drunk on microbrews and have freaky weird sex that's illegal in seven states.

Indeed. My son found us TERA when they moved to free-to-play (F2P) so that was a boon, and at least the PVE servers are kind, and serene. But the collective IQ on the PVP servers is astonishing!

indeed. i never even went on pvp servers or did pvp aside from battlegrounds, because i want to meander around and do quests and not have to worry about being killed. lol

It's ok I guess, as long as you're not having freaky weird sex that's illegal in seven states by yourself while getting drunk on microbrews!!!
