Video: "Goodbye, SWG ..."

#1 Posted by Citizengamer (183 posts) -

I can understand someone being upset that they won't ever be able to revisit their favorite game again, and especially a game where they have strong social contacts. Granted, not many people make a YouTube video to express those feelings. Copious tears are shed, and some choice words are hurled at SOE, LucasArts and Bioware.

A lot of people don't want anything to do with TOR.

Bingo. To piggy back off this statement though, TOR and SWG are 2 completely different beasts. TOR is about playing through a set epic story. SWG is about the player creating their own legacy so to speak. I'm not saying either one is better than the other because that's purely 100% subjective, but I can't imagine people would be happy to jump ship after years of building up this online persona/legacy. Not to mention TOR has arguably less depth than SWG. Again, not saying that's a bad thing, but some people just want nothing to do with that.

0:10 - oh god...

1:40 - O_O oh man... this chick is in it... in somethin'... on somethin'...

2:05 - "Fuck you, Sony Online Entertainment. Fuck you to Hell..." - HAHAAAA. Aaaaah, man. I've been thinking that about Star War Galaxies for years. Just... not in the same way i think she means it.

2:13 - "...fuck you, Bioware..." Woah. WOAH. Now this bitch has gone too far.

2:28 - giving up "the first sign things might go downhill?" Really? Is that really what they're doing?

2:33 - "Okay, it's been going downhill for a while now." - Yeah... yeah, it has.

3:54 - "It just- It deserved a better goodbye than this... they owed us that." - FUCK! For one brief, beautiful second, I really thought she might say "not like this." Oh well. There's always next time.


In all seriousness though, I feel for this girl. I can appreciate why she's upset, but ultimately... she's talking about roleplaying. She's talking about stuff that she, and other people, are making up. You can do that ANYWHERE. You could do it on skype! Or somewhere that it makes sense. Like, oh, I don't know-- THE STAR WARS ROLEPLAYING GAME????
