Classic MUD2MMO: Teach Me How 2 Play

I'm teaching you how to play paintball the SAME way gamers taught me how to play World of Warcraft!

Warning: There's bad language in this video. But it's nothing you haven't heard if you're an MMO player.

"This episode we decide turnabout is fair play. We're going to teach gamers how to play paintball in the same way that gamers like to teach others how to play MMORPG's.

"Hillarity ensues."

This is satire, yes, to make a point.

I'm a gamer. I'm a reality junkie. I'm a cynic. I'm a dinosaur. I'm a writer. I'm so much more than a paragraph can say. You want more? Ok. I started a video game show on the internet some time ago. See, I've played video games since Intellivision and Atari 2600 and PONG back in the day. Retro-gaming doesn't really fire me up as much as seeing how the community ticks.

So instead of saying 'YOU SUCK HEALER GTFO' I said 'what am I doing wrong?'. Silence followed. I said again, 'am I tanking this wrong? What should I be doing?' Silence again. 'Hello?' One guy finally goes, 'don't stand in the fire', like I wasn't already avoiding the fire. Anyway my point is, I, instead of blaming my healer, asked what I could do better to win the fight. No one had anything helpful to say.
