No one really has, but I know what a reaction would be.
Since some people now in my school use calling people a Jew as an insult, that is what they would call me.

With me, it'd be more like, "how can you stand those graphics?!!"

Or in my D&D circle, "So that's where you got that stupid life creationist class idea from. You suck random computer game company and I hope you die!"

My friends variously think it's strange that I play computer games at all or strange that I play RPGs instead of RTS or FPS games. The specific unusualness of Spiderweb games goes unremarked, quite possibly because my buddies don't know what to expect from a mainstream RPG anyway.

—Alorael, who takes roughly the same attitude towards FPS games. Fair is fair, after all.

Since I am always cleaning up after Imban, I don't have much time to actually play games, so I have not actually played any of the Spiderweb Software games. ^^;;

My brother says Spidweb games suck. I only play them at home so that's basically it.

On a side note: Imban's Cat-Eared Maid, you're not Feranix, are you? *glares suspiciously*

If I have guests, I'm not spending time messing around on the computer. I was out of college before SW ever existed, so there never was a quasi-private area in which I played.

I made the mistake of showing a few friends the game. One of them said the graphics suck, and the other regularly gives me speaches about the game and how g#y it is, he says things like this "hey when you move in Geneforge you teleport right huh? huh?" (Note he doesn't even know how to tell them apart.

Wow... that's one name I haven't seen dropped in ages.

Who was he (she?), actually? I only remember a few references on Desp, long gone...

Those who know what games I play have learned to put up with it. I only hear a few comments about ADOM, nowadays.

I'm with Alorael on this one. My friends are too busy not appreciating RPGs in general to even notice the bad graphics. Most of them are into old nintendo emulators, too, so that surely factors in as well.

My cousin saw me playing BoA..it wasn't a pretty experience..

He slapped me(and I do mean slapped) and shouted
one of my pre-given responses (the "OMG! ARE YOU THAT DESPERATE!?!" one) and he slapped me again and finally, he introduced me to WoW..

Now..I don't play SpidWeb games when people are around..except my brothers..they're younger..=D

When will be the world be safe for the SpidWeb Gamers..TELL ME WHEN!!

This is mostly it, except that I don't want my brother to talk to me anyway.

No one Dikiyoba knows cares enough to comment on Dikiyoba's choice of games.

Anyone who's seen me playing has shown, at the very least, mild interest. I've never actually had any negative reactions from others about a Spiderweb game.

--------------------
I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

I don't really play on the computer when I have friends over, but my family has seen me play SW games.

My brother thinks the graphics are horrible, so he wont give the games a chance. My mom and older sister feel that I'm too old for games, and my nephew really likes SW games but dislikes the amount of reading.

I've only showed SW games to people I thought would like them, so I've never had a negative reaction.

My condolences. I played Chatcraft for 1 session, and said screw this inane level grinding crap... What RPGs need is story, damn it. Story!

No, see, RPGs also need gameplay, or you get Xenosaga.

My cat-eared maid is not Feran.

Imban not saying anything about it until know, and then only being something that would require real world knowledge of said person made that overly clear WKS. Thanks for pointing it out anyways, as I'm sure there were some people who didn't connect the dots.

Imban, as I've heard it, has a different IP than Imban's Cat-Eared Maid. Imban's Cat-Eared Maid has posted videos allegedly of him playing against Imban. Imban's Cat-Eared Maid has shown no evidence of knowing the same people here as Imban himself knows.

Um, more importantly, why does it matter why Imban secretly does behind closed doors? We really don't need to know about that sort of thing.

I hate that writing can't subtly point out sarcasm.

Oh, by the way, nice 1000th post. Now, back to the point of the thread.

I don't play Spiderweb games around my friends.
