2020-12-02 - I've Done That

Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

2020-12-02 - I've Done That

Post by BigDamnHero » Thu Dec 03, 2020 5:59 pm

One time I threw a controller while playing...something on the PS2. Might have been Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas? I remember being real frustrated during the plane flying tutorial. At some point just straight yeeted my controller into the floor. Thought the carpeting would keep it safe.

Boy was I wrong.

Many years ago, while playing Counterstrike 1.6 with friends, one of them was having a really bad day. There was this enormous crunch sound, then silence. Said friend quietly said, "Be right back. I need to get a new keyboard." He had spares in the closet, so wasn't gone more than a couple of minutes, but he had literally crushed the keyboard in frustration.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

I think if you haven't thrown a controller while playing GTA:SA, you haven't really played it.
When all is said and done, more is generally said than is done.
Ask me anything - no, really - but be warned: I will answer. If you didn't want to know... don't ask.

I don't know if this is my favourite quote from 2020, but it's close. Obviously it is relevant to many, many years of gaming and (for others) computing in general.

I got GTA5 on a free sale from the Epic store. I finished it, mostly out of obstinance, much like Borderlands. It made me want to chuck my tower case across the room several times. (However, then I'd have to work directly on my company-supplied Mac, so I resisted the temptation.)
