A guy a work with asked me this last week

"Do you remember that first person PS1 game where you played as a kid and went into the sewers and tried to get past sharks?"

Any ideas?

I already have a ps4 but I'll be playing the shit out of this.

Having to drop items all the item was really annoying in zero.

(I voted despite only being 20, sorry) That said - I don't refer to my parents by their first names. Though sometimes I will talk to my mum and refer to my dad by his first name as she sometimes finds it confusing (my parents are divorced - and my mum refers to her father, my grandfather, by "Dad".)

I'm sorry but how on Earth is this confusing? Your Dad isn't your Mothers Dad, this is the case for 99.9999% of the population of planet Earth. I can imagine some stranger talking to you or your Mother about a person they refer to as "Dad" and you thinking he/she was referring to your Father, strange...

DAD!!? YOU MUST KNOW MY FATHER!!

Wow - way to be an asshole about it.

Ok, Ok! Sorry for being a bit of a meanie! but come on man, the idea that other people are referring to their Father when they say Dad and not yours is not confusing. I just found the thought that this would confuse someone to be kind of funny. Sorry for any offence caused.

@corwag: depression, anxiety, or ADHD (all stuff I've been diagnosed with at later stages of my life).

I've suffered from all three of these for most of my life, I'd imagine my depression and anxiety was partially brought on by the social consequences of having ADHD. I no longer suffer from anxiety and the depression isn't as bad as it was just a few months ago so I guess that's progress, I know what you're going through and wish you all the best.

I was playing Grand theft auto 5 yesterday and a fellow racer kept telling me "I fuck your mother". Now don't get me wrong, I couldn't care less about a 17 year old from half the world away hurling childish abuse at me but I'll give you another example, a Scottish man in his mid twenties was in my advanced warfare match a couple of weeks ago and he was calling me a "scouse cunt", the problem is not with the internet, it's not specifically with children or with video games, there's a serious problem with society if we have a generation who thinks its acceptable to speak to people this way over the internet.

@nmarebfly: Fair enough, I guess all I can say is that my understanding of the word comes from its general use in everyday conversation as opposed to the historical meaning which, of course, has more significance when discussing certain issues. Also Rory didn't make the same point as you, his argument was about the Greek origins and sexist intent associated with the word and it was to this I responded. Your post makes a slightly different point about the diagnosis of hysteria to which I would have met with a less fierce approach, that's all I got.
