(Some) Gamers Need to Settle Down!!

That will solve your lag issue....moron

I’m aware that my job on this site usually constitutes a lot of complaining. Hell, I complain about crap I have no real opinion on strictly for the lulz. And I’m sure at some point I’ve taken a potshot at George Lucas, and his typewriter or various other people in the short time this site has been up, but ladies and gentlemen of the Internet… there is a line.

Jennifer Hepler is employee of Bioware and she made this statement:  “Games almost always include a way to ‘button-through’ dialogue without paying attention because they understand that some players don’t enjoy listening to dialogue and they don’t want to stop their fun. Yet they persist in practically coming into your living room and forcing you to play through the combat even if you’re a player who only enjoys the dialogue. In a game with sufficient story to be interesting without the fighting, there is no reason on earth that you can’t have a little button at the corner of the screen that you can click to skip to the end of the fighting.”

Harmless to us normal people; However, for some reason a small group of gamers went all nerd-rage and started throwing a shit-fit all over Reddit attacking Jennifer Hepler (calling her extremely disrespectful slang names). Then the mob of angry nerds took to her Twitter and started attacking her there. Over a video game… Honestly I don’t even have anything else to say. Here is a link to the article at gamestop.

and here is the article that sparked the rage:

Read it, Tell everyone you know about it. This crap shouldn’t be tolerated and when good gamers do nothing…. dumb punks like this win.

That’s Yo Garbage
