Chivalry Is Not Dead!

The husband and I decided it was time to build a new computer so that we can both finally use the Internet at the same time. Because, really, what do you do when you’re not on the Internet? I won’t go into too much detail, but OMG WE HAVE A COMMAND CENTER NOW. The first thing we decided to do with it? Play Left 4 Dead 2 together, of course!

Typically, I don’t like to play games online because I feel weird about interacting with people I’ve never actually met in real life. But I’ve really wanted to play with the husband because I know him and that would be fun. Having a command center lets us do that now! So, we started our own server and started making our way to the mall. I learned pretty quickly that we weren’t the only ones playing on our server, but I didn’t mind so much mostly because I didn’t pay much attention to them.

Now, here’s the thing. One: I’m not used to playing with other people, so that was a weird paradigm for me. Two: I like playing games because they’re fun, but I’m nowhere near being top of the class. I also don’t aspire to be the best because it’s just not that important to me. What does all this mean? I would sometimes maybe shoot my teammates a little. But it was completely unintentional! I know, I know. I’m that person, but give me some time and practice and I won’t be. Okay?

Or, if you don’t want to get shot, how about this? Don’t run into the middle of the horde. Or, maybe even play on a server with a more difficult setting and better players? Playing on an Easy/Normal server and then getting upset with and griefing your teammates who aren’t perfect shots is like swimming in the kiddie pool and then yelling at the two-year-old who pees in the water.

So, one of my teammates started shooting me on purpose, and I thought his irrationality was annoying but also funny. The husband, however, was not amused. Do you know what he did for me? He killed my griefer!

That is one of the sweetest things anyone has ever done for me!
