Be bullies on GMOD.
Seriously, if you haven’t played any GMOD games it is actually filled with some of the worse personalities one can find online. Which is sad, because the different games are quite fun for being developed thru a collection of modification libraries based on the Counter Strike Engine.
Though the people who play… dear lord… its like everyone there is a nut job in their own right. Even the “Sqweekers” which are typically not even tweens yet and fuss and scream at such a high pitch. The things they say I could only imagine would cause their mother to be flushed with embarrassment and at a loss for where they went wrong…
Well as any well opinionated soul I’ll tell you exactly where you went wrong. You stopped paying attention. Seriously, most of the people I have gotten to know on these realms are barely in high school come from upper middle class and have unlimited and unrestricted access to mommy and daddy’s credit because its the new baby sitter. Put your kids in front of a computer and let them play for hours on end.
What you do not realize is they are getting an education on the thug life, with the mental distortion that would only come from the Dark Knight’s version of the Joker. These kids are sick. They say sick things. They emote sick things. Until you call them on it then they become little cry babies and run to a mod or admin and then normally the only reason they are even entertained is because unknowingly Mom and Dad made 50 – 100 dollar donations over the last month to the server.
It is like a twisted dark economy praying on young souls lost by parents that do not have time to keep up with their children. It was like a civil war when I came down on mine when I laid down the law on playing GMOD and CS GO. Every now and then I have to refresh my opinion with them on that as well. The point is you have to stay on top of them. OR else they become ass hats and bullies.
The game play breads it. Its the only way to survive unfortunately and all the time in back ground a few enterprising college students are making cash hand over fist on them.
Sad part is… is fun…
But like a lot of fun things… its a gateway to some real bad things if not monitored, and properly balanced with the reality you want good and decent human beings to learn to take with them.
Heck… I am telling you right now… if you let you kids grow up this way, the future is bleak and people will at some point be so desensitized to random acts of violence and bullying that you will not have interventions in the future, you will only have retaliation.
So mommas its no longer Cow Boys you have to worry about… it is GMOD bullies you gotta look our for now.
