So I've been receiving some really stupid messages. This guy sent me a few stating that I knew nothing about games and that because I don't have a high end pc and a 1080p tv etc etc I am not a true gamer etc etc. Crysis is the best game evar!!1onoeneELEVEN

Frustratingly I replied saying that I didn't enjoy Crysis that much and thought the story was a bit generic. Though my PC runs games like Half Life 2 and Team Fortress 2 and I was happy with that. I went back to playing Fable 2 and enjoying my evening.So I get this sent to me. What is this man on about? So instead of arguing with him via text I sent him a voice chat invite.

Some 29 year old man was sat there telling me how he's played ALL the AAA titles and he knows everything. I know nothing. If he knew I was a GIRL he would not of contacted me (even though the inside xbox has a picture of me on it...) and that because my bio said that people should not contact me for COD5 keys (as I am being asked for them) that I am a vein person and think I know everything about games. /sigh

I tried to reason with him. Telling him it's his opinion to enjoy Crysis but he was having none of it. Team Fortress 2 is apparently an over simplistic game. Fable 2 is not free roaming (urmm?) and is too scripted.... it's... a RPG/Action? .. aren't they supposed to be scripted to some degree? I tried to say I just prefer things like Fable etc and then he went on about how COD5 is nothing on Crysis and how Crysis has the best physics ever and that no game for 5 years will beat it etc. While I don't know much on in game coding and physics all I know that Crysis is famous for is the fact when you pile barrels up and knock them down it looks cool. Oh and that there is an awesome LEGO mod for it....

Am I wrong to not thing Crysis is the greatest thing ever? Or am I such a simple person and should go get a better job and buy a 1080p tv and high end pc and every console ever because this guy does.

Also if you have time tell your opinions to that guy ;-) Just don't let him know I sent ya! hahahaha~
