Judge Judy Is a Bitch

Achievement Bounty 2-16-2011 - 2-18-2011 (22) (355GS)
Achievements obtained from Lucha Libre AAA, Things On Wheels, Bloody Good Time, and A World of Keflings.

Completed DLC: Cars, Roaar, and Vroom. Things on Wheels
I have come to terms with the fact that "The chase down" will never happen. I missed that opportunity but I'll still pursue it like a fat kid chasing down an ice cream truck. Nothing has really changed in terms of overall completions since the last update. I now will only count a game completed if all DLC is done as well. That takes away Mafia II from the completed list. On the other hand, I got Things On Wheels back to completion status by throwing my money away on overpriced DLC. So now through out the year you will get to hear me bitch and complain when new DLC comes out and takes a completion away. YAY! I'm not generally THAT dude because I really don't give a damn. But now I will be more aware when it happens. I don't have spidey sense towards that shit. I play tons of games and ass DLC comes along all the time. Going back to mostly subpar titles, with even less ambitious downloadedable content is not all that appealing to me.

I get the feeling that everyone thinks I am this crazy psycho nerd gamer. "DUH!" Which is totally fair. I realize it comes with the territory. Or maybe anyone that belittles me to a certain degree are the psycho nerd gamers? People like to judge, mostly due to their own insecurity.  But here is a fact: You may want to sit down. I wasn't born with the nerd gene. Please try not to faint. Sorry, it's just not in me. Maybe I can get some tips from the grench and learn how to grow something that is not really there. I just have to figure out  in what area of the human body the "nerd" is located. Dork stuff, in general, I don't like. I like Xbox Live a lot and wanted to have the highest score. Then it just snowballed into what it is today. There may or may not be a clear purpose to it all. I'm working with that, it's a process just like the journey itself.  For comparison sake and comparison sake only. The ps3 trophy leader wears a shirt with his completions on it.  Just from that I know there's a big difference in personality. To me, that's some dork shit. I wouldn't get caught dead in a shirt with my completions on it.( I own zero pieces of gamer clothing) But I wouldn't go out of my way to bash him for being who he is. Or anyone else for that matter.

I also seem to throw off this perception that I'm an asshole. Well, that's what my inside source tells me. Also know as the gossip girl wonder, Rand Al.  By throw off, I mean people judging without getting to know me for even a second. More than likely out of spite for whatever reason. I care so little about my gamerscore that I have never brought it up to anybody, not even once. Even when gamerscore is brought up by another person. It's not like I'll stroll into Gamestop and brag about how large my gamerscore is. Granted, I'm an introvert by nature. I'm the type of person who would rather watch one succeed, then to watch one fail. Correct me if I'm wrong but there's a good percentage that would rather see failure.  Not sure if there's a point to this but I'll treat everyone the same way. Whether your gamerscore is 0 or 400,000. Same goes if your kill to death ratio is .10 or 2.0.  Dork stuff does not impress me. I'm more drawn to good people. The whole gamer population is so judgmental, it's like a flashback to middle school days. This type of immaturity is stunting the growth of gaming seen in a good light. We (gamers) are taking two steps forward and two steps back at every corner. Have you ever watched judge Judy? She judges people for a living. You don't want to act like that, she is a bitch.

  1. That was a good speech I completely agree with u.

  2. I agree I hate the random anomosity between gamers. I never got it. I dislike heavily judgemental people just let people be the way they are.

    I own several pieces of dorky clothing but I would never where a shitty shirt just prove I am a gamer. I have a friend who dresses up as a jedi, and or link on a daily basis. I wont judge him for it cause thats just how he is but I would never do that myself.

    At one point I kinda bragged about my score but now it seems pointless to, its just something I do no need to brag.

    Very good article man


  4. I have no problem with people being judgmental, the problem comes in what people are judgmental about. "Don't judge me" has become the standard defense of the myriad of stupid people in our society, as if that phrase will immunize them from the consequences of their moronic behavior.

    Judge the welfare mother who keeps spitting out kids and expecting society to pay for them. Judge the idiots who constantly drive drunk, putting the lives of others at risk. Judge people who do harm to their fellow man in the many ways we do every day.

    But judge someone because they choose to spend lots of their free time playing games? What a joke.

    What you choose to do is paid for with your money, and harms not one person - that is bothers anyone says a lot about them.

  5. We the jury find Stallion83 guilty of having a high gamerscore.

  6. I work at a game stop, and i was suprised how many people bring up your name just to call you a cheater or modder just to name a few. Youve been on xbl since the begining. I always felt compelled to defend you. even though i have never met you or even played a game with you.( although we were in a K&L2 lobby together briefly). Point being, that we as gamers should not hate one another because of a number. After reading this this i have a lot more respect for you as gamer and a person as a whole. Keep doin your thing and let the haters hate. Peace

  7. Just thought i'd point out that the #1 PS3 player doesn't actually wear a shirt like that. It's definitely photoshopped imo

  8. It's funny, the Anonymity of being behind the GT actually reveals the true personalities of people in my opinion. That's why it's always a pleasure to run into the few who don't find joy in bringing people down.

    The gamerscoring community is pretty small, and it's amazing what you hear goes around. But actions have always spoken louder than words in the community we play in, and jealousy is the tribute that people pay to excellent people.
