Videogame Quote of the Week – #2

December 6, 2008

warquote1
I’ve always thought that jokes were the truth in disguise and this little quote, originally said by philosopher Bertrand Russell, is a joke told in Fallout 3 by a robotic butler.

This one just speaks for itself so instead of going the political route with it I’ll just take it down to personal relationships. When one person is angry at another it just seems so natural to take the violent path against them (pacifists might not agree). Whether it’s being jumped after school, shot for a misunderstood glance, or slapped for a cold dinner, violence is an option so often used yet it doesn’t prove anything but our own levels of inhumanity.

Videogame Quote of the Week – #1

November 22, 2008

The World Ends With You Quote

As a person who likes to keep to herself a lot, and doesn’t like asking for help, I feel this quote is geared toward people like me, who are used to living in small worlds – alone. I’ve become very independent in my life and haven’t learned how to rely on other people, primarily because I don’t trust them with living up to my standards. And this has stopped me from fully enjoying working with people, learning how to behave in intimate social events and realizing that my future is not just in my hands.

Every person you encounter in life has the potential to shake your core, and the beliefs and values that you hold. It’s just a matter of you allowing them to. Sift the bad seeds out, and only allow good ones in. The mind is a powerhouse of wonder, thought and logic and when two connect it can be a dynamic force.

It’s important to keep your focus on matters that are five steps ahead, but why not shake it up a little bit and take a look at what’s 10 steps ahead for you? And if you see so little in your future, stir up your life! So cliché, but break the mold and open your eyes. There’s a whole world out there and it ends with you.

I’m Inspired!

November 22, 2008

While browsing a fellow blogger’s site, I came across one of his “Quote of the Week” posts. It really just stopped me and made me think for a minute, and forced me to reminisce about my 10th grade English course. Our teacher used to make us analyze quotes in order to broaden our perspectives.

So I’m going to borrow Silvercube’s idea, but switch it up a little bit. Every week I’ll choose a quote from a videogame that really speaks to me, and post it. Then I’ll give my thoughts on what I think it means, or how it makes me feel (and it sure beats posts about Burger Shots).

Thank you buddy for inspiring me!
