The newest video at the Reckless Tortuga channel on youtube clearly explains why online gamers are quite anti-social creatures. I put myself in this category to an extent as well, as I used to play a lot of TF, CoD1, and RTCW. I am however not quite as much of a prick in reality as this young man appears to be…anymore. I do still have a *slight* problem interacting with so called normal people though. I used to love playing online with dickheads like this though, all the trash talking and bravado they spewed only sweetened the victory when I would destroy them in a pistols only battle in CoD, the POW Camp was my favorite for this.
I always thought that a great idea for a reality show would be to get a top tier group of FPS gamers and send their asses into simulated combat with top tier military units. I got the idea after watching a commercial for SoCom where a group of gamers got spanked royally in an online match against their unseen opponents, a group of actual Navy Seals. I just want to see a bunch of shit talking 20 year olds get their asses handed to them and be publicly humiliated.
