>. . . are all nuts. OK, maybe not all of them but many definitely are. Which I didn’t know until I posted a review of Civilization V where I dared (and what a horrible thing to do!) to mention that I like Civilization V and didn’t enjoy Civilization IV. Since then, I have been inundated by angry messages from gamers, ranging from mildly offensive to scarily crazy, berating me for expressing my opinion of the game. This is really insane because it’s just a game. And probably now I will be hated even more because this is not a sentence any hardcore gamer ever wants to hear.
I have been accused of being paid by the company that made the game to promote it (I wish, but in what universe would they hire somebody like me who only plays a couple of times a month, at best?) and of never even having seen either version of the game and just writing bad things about Civ IV out of spite (yes, because it cheated on me with my boyfriend.)
So, gamers, please stop writing to me, telling me how Civ V’s introduction of hexes has changed your life for the worse. If you care about it this much, you probably never had a life to begin with. Maybe now is a good time to get your ass out of that arm-chair and go get one.
P.S. My husband’s comment on this subject: “If you spent as much time with gamers as I do, you would know that these people don’t have any sex. At all. Ever. Then, you would be more compassionate towards them.”
