What does it say................

Post by Kenzomatic on Sun Nov 29, 2009 5:17 pm

What does it say about our society that people are willing to argue to the death over the artistic merit of video games and movies? I have seen threads ten miles long hostilely debating MGS4, there have been multiple people stabbed in real life for not liking Twilight. There are entire sites that have been built to disprove that The Dark Knight was a good film.

Now don't get me wrong I have no problem with a civil debate about any topic as it promotes the flow of ideas, but when it gets down to hate and malice that is a real problems. I mean how does someone stab someone else over them liking Jacob in twilight more then Edward WTF. Why are these people allowed to live, we should ship them to the most impoverished country on the planet so maybe they could learn to focus on reality. Then maybe they will learn that having the time and money to be a fanboy/girl is a privilege and adds no value to this planet.

I was reading a Roger Ebert review earlier on GI Joe in which he made fun of the film for being horrible and gave it 1 1/2 stars. There was a small group of people who commented about how much they hated Ebert and went so far as to wish his death over this review. Really? I mean why did they read the review? Why did they comment? I don't get it.

From my perspective it would appear that we have created a way of disguising our self's so we can say and do the inappropriate, abrasive, socially unexceptionable things we want on the internet and return to reality scot-free. (not that everyone does that but many) Now it seem this rigged mentality that happens among the anonymous in cyber land is spilling over into reality as a result of becoming way to comfortable and used to the anonymous cyber environment.

Combine that with the ability to connect with all the other crazies who believe its OK do defend Twilight's Honor with a knife and you get a disillusion manic who is allowed to exist in society even though they don't have the first clue about living it because they live in fantasy land. All supported by their fictional fantasy friend who exist somewhere in reality but for all practical purposes are just a manifestation created to reinforce the crazy.

It would seem that we as a society need to readjust quite a few things is our structure to counter act this growing trend of disassociation.

I know what you're talking about. We've talked about this in French class recently, but it was more about online video games addiction. It probably doesn't have a lot in common with what you talked about, but at the same time it's not truly off-topic. The reason why these addicts keep playing their MMOs is that it gives them a quick sense of satisfaction that they can't get in real life. It's easy to create a new, better and unimaginable you on the Internet because, anyways, people all over the world can't compare with the real you in real life. In that sense, they get to experience things they wouldn't possibly do in real life.

What you explained is pretty much the normal evolution of what started with online games through the more casual crowd. With families having at least one computer in the house nowadays, social networking sites and the availability of web hosting sites, I'm not surprised to see things like this happen.

its the internet silly, everyone thinks they are the standard against which all humans should be judged, the nature of the beast as it were, the human ego manifests itself best when it has no fear of reprisal.

SHUMP: "The reason why these addicts keep playing their MMOs is that it gives them a quick sense of satisfaction that they can't get in real life."

How is this just MMOs ??? That description fits all videogames... but as usuall on the internet we are in denial about things that effect us... and thats a good thing... mostly... do we really need all that much reality ??? Sure if you get addicted to games and internet it mostly ends bad (or as a beta tester)... I guess online play is more dangerous because it has a social component that gives you the feeling you are not alone at home in your natchostained undies... also there is no closure to the game... always another quest or raid going on... or the next expansion to wait for... but if you are socially awkward or just don´t like real people who are we to judge ??? You just need to realize that it can never fully replace real human contact... and once in a while you need to wash, shave and get out and remember what the daymoon looks like...

As for agression on the internet... mine is purely sarcastic so it doesn´t count (again denial Razz)... the internet has given the whole world a voice... problem is... most of us have nothing interesting or even mildly entertaining to say... at least not on a dayly basis... and most of us just want to be heard... not listen to others... but sice movies, music, TV, videogames and our retarded parents have made us believe that we are special and everything we do is fantastic and improtant (and most of realize thats BS and are bitter about it), we all have the desire (or addiction) to be heard and approved of... but the internet is really a bad place for that... thats why it has become a "who can scream the loudest contest" ...only text is silent... so people go to plan B... be as much of an asswhole as possible to get the attention... some people have found other ways of seeming interesting and getting attention but the vast majority do the asshole rutine because its the easiest (only since everyone is doing it you need to crank it up to "I KILL YOU" levels now)... remember that one kid in kindergarden that would through dirt at everyone and was always insulting so the teacher had to have special talks with him and his parents had to come get him and give him extra attention ??? That kid is the internet... all they want to attention... because attention = love... and thats what it boils down to... human insecurity + the desire to be loved...
