I'm pretty sure I've played this.  Is this based on an MMO?

I've had this exact conversation.  On multiple occasions.  With different people, no less.

Dwarf Fortress

I don't play because I want to.

I play to get back at them.

Indirectly, Idiocracy makes the cut.

"The Marching Morons," the short story on which Idiocracy was based, can be found here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/23657356/The-Marching-Morons

Thanks to +Winchell Chung for the link.


(edit): Having now read "The Marching Morons," I can report that it makes Orwell's 1984 seem uplifting.  Also, Idiocracy was dumbed down.

Want something new to read?

A good friend of mine is set to publish his debut novel, Her Name Is Violence which is a hard core noir not meant for the adolescent reader.

If that might be your sort of book, his Kickstarter to raise the funds for his upcoming marketing efforts is linked below.  It'd be a great way to buy the book in advance and help out.  If it's not your sort of book but it might be something that interests those you know, spread the word, please!

Let him know I sent you.

Don't mind me.  I'm just staring at an obscure compiler error and realizing there's no magic left in the world.
