I was reading on the bus today and a conversation caught my attention. It was between two fellows who work at a game company downtown and it went as such.
Dude 1: Hey I hear you were in the The old republic trial… how is it?
Dude 2: Meh… it’s all Star Wars stuff again. They could have put some originality in it and not have Jedis all over the place again. Create a new type of fighter or something instead of the same old thing.
Dude 1: Yeah, why would anyone want to play the same stuff as in the movies? We’ve already seen it. MMO players are really dumb.
The guys then start laughing and commenting on how Star Wars nerd are pathetic…
So maybe I’m a fanboi but I could not imagine a Star Wars game without actual Star Wars stuff in it… but maybe that’s just me. What worries me more is how two guys working in video games can so clueless about why someone would actually want to be playing in the world of their favorite movie..
/boggles the mind.
