Compare game world to our world
« on: December 25, 2016, 12:08 PM »
Real World:
1 - You're at a party (Pretend you go to them) everyone's in their finest clothes and probably half had surgeries to make themselves look better.

Thought possibilities:
A) Everyone wants to play a 10/10 on looks..
B) No one here makes it past 8.  I wish game people would stop at that too
C) Oh my gosh! Someone who's only a 5/10! I want to hang with the normal person.

2 - You're in a jail cell
A) Wow, it wasn't this hard to steal in the game
B) I though it was an NPC - how was I suppose to know they'd care about a nobody?
C) They got upset over me drawing a sword in the city? I do it all the time in MuD

Got some of your own? Share and critique or just laugh!

Our world has:
High-quality graphics
A dynamic economy
A world that responds to your actions
Permadeath
PvP Anywhere

This may sound like an impressive feature-list, but it loses its appeal quick

Alone in the game is just as lonely as alone in the real world...

That is sad... but but...

I know the game MultiMud has 'multibot' so even when there is no one on there is one willing to talk to you.  Send multibot a tell and it will respond to you .. like the early version of Siri! It just doesn't always guess right on what you are telling it.

Alone on MUD's of course also means no one online is out there planning to kill you.  Can you say that for sure in the real world?

People in charge give a lot of lip service to addressing the needs of the proletariat, but in actuality are only interested in their own condition.

hm.. Tempo .. I don't see where the comparison is in here from game to real world.

Here's one though guys:
The worst happens and a character is no longer fun to play (Can't say I've had this problem, but some do!)
MuD -  Oh, I don't liket his char.  I'll just recreate and have fun something new
Real Life - Life isn't fun.  Oh well... keep on a going!

Comparison - needing a moment to oneself
MuD - AFK Folks (find a spot to be alone and go afk safely
Real Life - Good luck finding a moment to yourself! Outside world, internet, phone and.. all manner of ways to find society nudging at you

I'm not surprised. It's a short maxim that can be applied to the real world or a game.
