Gaming With Uncle Lester: This Voice Over IP Crap Needs to Stop
Uncle Lester may live in a van down by the river, but that doesnt mean he isnt a gamer at heart. Always on the lookout for an unsecured Wi-Fi connection to use before being runoff, his quest for gamer glory continues!
Hello and welcome to the 23rd edition of Gaming with Uncle Lester! Im your host of todays show, Uncle Lester. Of course, I had to open my big mouth didnt I? Late last night, a perp *did* come up to my window tonight. Fortunately for me, she was all over my offer of 500 so let me get this article done for you. And you know what they say, When the van is a rockin dont come knockin!
Speaking of what people say, Ive got a complaint about the gaming world to bring up. I know, shocker, right? What the hell is the obsession with using voice over IP to chat with people while playing games? I dont get it. I dont want to talk to you while Im playing a game. In fact, Im probably playing that game for the sole purpose of avoiding having to talk to you.
Is this a kid thing that drifted over into the adult world? Are you guys supposed to be uber good with technology and stuff? If you can type 100 words per minute on those damned phones that never leave your hands, why the hell is it so hard to type in a video game? And dont even get me started on the kids screaming on the console headsets.
Is it too much to just kick back and play a few matches of Call of Duty without it becoming a thing? What ever happened to the concept of STFU and play the game. Last night is a perfect example of why VOIP needs to just go away. Before I go get busy, let me give you a list of things I dont want to do when I sit down to play a game:
- Get shot in the nuts.
- Get laughed at by a 12 year old because he shot me in the nads.
- Deal with a crying 12 year old after I told him the postman is his father because his mothers a slut.
- Get into a screaming match with a 12 year old kids father.
- Consoling a crying father after finding out the kid really is the postmans.
