But there are other games.
My clan has a newsgroup that started years ago as a regional Halo clan (we still have twice yearly, massive linkfests), evolved to a Modern Warfare clan, and now has directed offshoots into Borderlands, Earth Defense Force, and other team-based forays.
Today, someone asked if he could be taken off of non-CoD messages. I piped in that there are other games out there.
His (tongue-in-cheek) response?
"There are other games than cod?"
My (more tongue-in-cheek) response?
"I've heard tell of games -- other games -- that exist in the Wilds of Gameslanderz.
"Games with stories. With characters you believe in. Games not all 'bout killin', and cussin', and being pwned by 12-year-olds.
"It's probably a myth. But, [muted], it's a beautiful myth."
There are other games. Go play them.
