The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

DAILY MANIFESTO

A real player hater

Posted on Wednesday, August 2 @ 16:22:40 PST by Joe_Dodson
Joystiq hipped us to aseemingly harmless article today from Video Game Resource Center about the obnoxious terms used by video gamers. At first the piece reads like a legitimate rant against annoying conjunctions, but as you dive deeper it becomes clear that the writer is really railing against people he hates, not grammatical structures. In spite of the confusion, we still agree in some cases. People who yell "Boom! Headshot!" into our mics definitely piss us off, although admittedly the thing that rankles most is the fact that we aren't the ones yelling it. But thenthe authorgoes too far, and says the following about Gaymers, or Gay Gamers:

"Every time I pop in a video game, I don't need these people shouting at me how I'm a homophobic monster because I don't agree with the way they live."

Now, I've played a lot of online games, and I think the only thing I haven't been randomly called was a homophobic monster. I also think it's a little bit hypocritical of the author to resent that comment when a) He resembles it and b) It's grammatically correct. If they were calling him a “Homonster-phobe,” he might have a point, but “homophobic monster” is grammatically airtight with its adjective / noun one-two punch.

What really knocks me out, though, is the fact that he complains about "Wii-Mote" and "Celda," then drops a "These people,"possibly the most hateful two-word combo in the English language.While according to his standards it might have been worse if he said "Theople," he's still a Homonster-phobe, and I'm shockfused that Joystiq ran his piece.
