“First!” Hey asshole, thanks for contributing. I hate this. I even made fun of it on my website naming my first article, ‘First!’ as a personal joke.
But seriously, what is the point of doing this? I feel like it’s younger gamers just jumping up to get themselves out there and upping their post count. It’s zero article/post contribution and uselessly clogs the reader comment bar. Not to mention it further instigates things by challenging others to post “second!” and “third!”
Frankly, you’re an idiot if you do this. I have several “you’re an idiot gamer” post ideas and this is the first. It’s gamers like you that give us a bad stigma. Most mature gamers rage on 14 year olds ruining tactics or any real in game team contribution; typing “first!” (or any similair single digit number yawp) generally automatically throws you in the ‘kid’ category (and a quick ignore user feature!). Furthermore, it’s just plain dumb. Does it make you feel proud? Does it make you feel important and involved?
Y’know really, the idea behind coding in a comment box is for contributing thoughts and follow up discussion about the main article. Obviously. Yes, well I guess some kids just don’t understand the idea behind actually having a discussion on one thing at a time.
If you find yourself doing this, whether it’s on a popular youtube channel upload or any well recognized forum or discussion panel: stop. Stop before you further embarress yourself and the gaming community.
Writing this reminds me to someday write a similair post about the importance of not writing in all caps with a dozen exclamation marks in game chat.
Either write something to contribute your own, original thoughts and ideas or shut the hell up.
