Good evening fellow forum crawlers.
Allow me to begin by saying that this is my first post and a subject that i have pondered about for quite sometime.
I'm sure some of you may find this trivial and some may even feel the need to tear me down for such a view.
That's O K guys i am interested in all sides of a debate and i welcome your thoughts and critique on the matter.
I am frustrated with the notion that everyone should be and be made to feel like a winner.
You see it everywhere today. Parents and organizations telling kids that no matter what your a winner.
I hate this hand holding coddling bullshit. To quote George Carlin " There are no losers anymore, everyone is a winner. No matter what the game or sport everybody wins, everybody get a trophy. No one ever gets to hear those important character building words "you lost bobby.". you know what they tell them instead? " you were the last winner."."
At this point you may be asking " where is he going with this?"
My point is this. Blizzard Entertainment has turned us all into its special "Winners"
I'll not speculate on the reason for such actions, that is not why i am here.
Diablo, WoW and HS, just a few examples where there are no consequences (hardcore being a very soft exception) for dying, wiping or losing a match.
In vanilla inferno i was overjoyed when i finally killed the butcher but do you know what thrilled me even more? The moment i walked into act 2 and was immediately shredded by the very first bug i came across. I had just killed the butcher and I gaped in awe as this tiny little bug proceeded to bend me over and told me to bite the pillow because he was going in dry.
I was halfway through act 2 when we got the big nerf and i felt cheated.
I feel The spirit of competition in gaming is slowly dying and the main reason for that is the soft stance people have taken on losing.
I'd care to hear from some of you.
