Thank you for making the point that it's not just a game. Just a game is when you piss an NPC off, not another player. Too many people don't realize or care that other people are behind the other characters and treat them like robots, then don't understand why the same thing happens to them. Common courtesy is all too rare these days, and that's why I'm taking time off of the game.NOT thank you for sneaking in a stealth TVTropes link. Now I'm lost in the neverending maze of tropes with no escape in sight. D:

In my own experience, the people who argue, "It's just a game" to justify their behavior are often the same people who, if you *criticize* or complain about that behavior, also proclaim, "Well it's an MMO with lots of people who don't play the same way you do!"And so I'm left thinking it must be a generational thing or something. I'm 45, and was raised with the idea that when surrounded by other people I should behave in a considerate manner and be aware of how my actions may affect those other people. But what I see from many people whom I can only assume are much younger and were raised to believe that "I'm special" means "I'm more important than everybody else" is that they believe that "multiplayer" means "Everybody just needs to suck it up and put up with my !@#$, because I have to put up with their !@#$."

I think the phrase "Just a game is when you piss an NPC off, not another player" is just right.
