I have to confess I will never understand why people fly into a furious rage when a patch or update takes longer than expected. I mean I can understand if the servers were down for a week or some shit, that would be bad, but a few hours?
Look, I’m speaking as someone for whom MMOs specifically are pretty much my only hobby, my escape, the vast percentage of my social life. I don’t go out with people, I don’t go to movies, I don’t do sporting events. I’m a recluse. Gaming means a lot to me.
And yeah, if I’m really looking forward to something it can be disappointing if I have to wait for it. Man, I don’t know. Maybe it’s a function of growing up poor and being told things like “we couldn’t afford to get you a birthday present this year”. It just makes me shrug and go ‘oh well’. I’ll read a book or watch TV for a couple hours. Hell maybe I’ll get lucky and get to have a nap.
Maybe it’s because gaming is my happy place. I don’t want to get angry about it. I don’t know. I just don’t get it.
