PostSubject: "Play If You Care About Me": A True Story   Fri May 27, 2011 7:49 am

"Play if you care about me", reads the description of this adventure I found surfing the MPN today.

The thumbnail, a top down shot of a poorly and obviously hastily created prop of what I assume is supposed to be a puddle of this user's tears, sticks out like a sore thumb even among a bunch of average 15 point adventures intentionally uprated to crowd out the good stuff by a bunch of trolls, and the title...a simple "T_T" emote, a crying face made of text that just screams "hug me".

As I stared at the image before me, what were my feelings?

I'd like to say I shed a small tear, wiping it away with my finger as my heart shattered in two from the pure emotional stress of this completely random and unimportant person's personal strife hitting it like a sledgehammer.

I'd like to say I gripped my widescreen monitor like a stuffed animal in a heartfelt, but futile effort to give some physical solace to this poor, unfortunate soul.

I'd like to say I took out my sword and ventured out into the wilderness, sacrificing time, energy, food, LIFE ITSELF to bring justice to the n'eredowells who, with wickedness in their hearts and fire in their eyes, spited this defenseless creature, IN ITS PRIME.

I'd like to say these things.

But I'm afraid my reaction was more along the lines of this:

coffee Instead of gripping my monitor in a loving embrace, I gripped my sides and gasped for breath, as I was heaving with laughter.

The absurdity of this find was almost too much to bear. Of all the places to post a desperate cry for help, SPORE?

When you've sunk to such an insignificant level that a video game in which you create adorable little aliens who speak in a language atkin to speaking yiddish backwards while simultaneously vomiting fecal matter is your ideal medium for releasing emotional stress, as opposed to facebook, myspace, or any other community site, then you, sir, madamme, etc. DESERVE, wholeheartedly the negative attention that you recieve.

This desperate plea for attention shall garner from me no sympathy whatsoever. As far as I'm concerned, the creator of this adventure can jump off a cliff and reduce the number of genetic mishaps on this planet (of which their are billions, which is truly frightening and scares me more than spiders...god I hate spiders, though) by one.

Spore is not a blog. Spore is not a diary. The players of Spore are not certified therapists ready to listen to you nag and moan about how the world keeps turning even though you wish to get off.

I probably sound like a complete jerk right now, but we have enough issues with the Sporepedia as it is. Attention whoring is not appreciated.

As for whatever problems you have, this is the internet.

HATERS GONNA HATE



If you can't handle the drama, get off.

That is all.

I saw this on the MPN too, and honestly I was like: "What's wrong?" and I thought the player was leaving or something (Turned out they were). I'm tired of people using Spore like a social network.

Heh, I once picked up a book named "Shut up, Stop Whining and Get a Life". It occurs to me that there are a surprising number of people on Spore that could benefit from the title alone... And, in some cases, from having the hardcover version thrown at them. Joyful

Amen to that brother!

Where can I get a copy? I'll run around smacking people in the face with the cover!

This guy is just an innocent dude who has problems. No need to rant.

All I want to know is: was it a good adventure?

wall Gel, I think I made it quite clear what this adventure was, but allow me to repeat it again for you:

A DESPERATE CRY FOR HELP.

So no, not really.

There really shouldn't be any inquiry into whether or not it was a "good" adventure, and frankly, I'm a little disturbed you even contemplated the idea. coo coo

Don't judge a book by its cover. Imagine if that adventure was the most beautiful piece of art you'd ever seen, sans the picture, title and description. You never would have seen it because you think it looks like something a n00b put together.

"Don't judge a book by its cover, papa, that's what you told me."
"When a book is called Guns, Drugs, Hookers and No Pants...I think I don't need to read it."

In other words, your point is lost on the simple fact that the adventure in question is not one of these jewels you speak of.

I reiterate: the adventure was a desperate cry for help. End of story. No sequel. No cliffhanger. Exit the theatre. Bye bye. SEE YOU LATER.

Hence why I used the url tags instead of posting the actual video. If you don't want to see the video, don't click it.

Yeah that was the intent. If you think it belongs somewhere else feel free to move it.

I agree with Kitty: Cool story bro

I also agree with the fact haters will hate, If you can't handle Spore, a digital pixel collection and series of binary scripts, than leave and cry to someone else.
