Devilish Things We’ve All Tried in Videogames

thumbnail_892645c3-a397-4931-b2c0-472eb954c4c0You don’t have to be hugely into videogames to know that there are just some games, that are a lot more fun when played badly. By this, I mean not playing the game properly and completely messing about. Whether it be that you’re bored and arsing around is more amusing, than the actual game or whether you just want to test the limits of the game. I think we can all agree, that videogame devilment can be a hell of a lot of fun. (The King of Cheese has returned)

Before I get stuck into that, I’d like to point out that this post was originally, going to be about the evil things we all do in videogames. But that list quickly became really disturbing and sounded very much like videogame sadism. So, I had to downgrade to devilment (really didn’t fancy getting kick off WordPress, for describing the twisted things that can be done in videogame. Even though we’ve all done them). However, videogame devilment is just as funny, so without further delay, I give to you.

The Devilish Things We Have All Done in Videogames

1-Using Your Teammates for Target Practice:
We’ve all been on incredibly boring missions or gotten a little curious and decided to test out weapons on your computerised teammates. Most of the time, this has absolutely no effect on your oblivious non-reactive teammates. But if you’re lucky, sometimes the game turns against you and fights back. Making that boring mission, a hell of a lot more interesting.

I think it’s safe to say, that anyone who has ever played Sims has done this. From trapping sims in rooms and starving them, to not letting the sims out of the pool. We’ve all been a little cruel to the sims and probably in more creative ways than I described. But in everyone’s defence, the game makes it hard not to mistreat the sims, even just a little and almost encourages at times. Like don’t create a giant sim eating cow-plant in your game, if you don’t want me to feed a sim or 2 to it every so often.

3-Driving on The Sidewalk:
Because why drive responsibly in a videogame, when driving like a maniac and chasing pedestrians is so much better. Best not to drive like that in real life, though. It’d probably end in a very painful death.

4-Being the World’s Worse Bodyguard:
I’m yet to meet someone who actually likes escort missions. They are beyond frustrating, especially when the person your meant to guard, is basically walking into bullets and seems to have some sort of dead wish. So, like the patient and caring gamers we are, we do whatever it takes to end the misery that is an escort mission. Even if that involves running off and leaving the lamb to the wolves or taking care of them ourselves.

thumbnail_11cb09f2-6901-4aae-a6ba-1c1b44ced4825-Throwing Livestock:
This one is more to do with a Nintendo game, that involves farming and a very annoying mayor. So, annoying in fact, that you’ve probably thrown a chicken or 2 at him in disgust, of his pushy passive aggressive manner. Scary thing is the chicken actually like it and displays a little love heart above its head every time you throw it. If that isn’t encouragement to throw Nintendo chickens, I don’t know what is.

6-Playing with The Less Experienced Players:
It can be very tempting to help a new player, greatly increase their death toll. However, as tempting as that is, there is something more entertaining that we’ve all done to less experienced players. Which is shooting in their direction without aiming, just to watch them get all excited and flap madly about, as they try to grasp the game’s controls. (Wow, that one is also sort of cruel as well as devilish)

7-Death from Above: 
Jumping into another player from high up, is probably a dirty move. But we’ve all at least tried it once, if only to see if it actually works. (I know I’ve tried it a few times in Call of Duty. Could never ace the landing, though.)

thumbnail_952b4443-5b0e-41b8-bce2-b6b0523090b78-Teasing Zombies:
Fighting off Zombies is a lot of fun, but some times teasing the zombies can be more entertaining, than killing them. From starting a massive game of zombie tag, to taunting zombies and laughing your little socks off at the state of a zombie trying to run. Teasing videogame zombies can be incredibly fun and provide you with a lot of laughs.

9-Extreme Overkill:
Sometimes, you just have to throw a grenade at that weak ass monster. You could have probably destroyed it with a punch, but that wouldn’t be as satisfying. Sometimes, if haven’t caused several computerised fires or explosions, we’re just not playing the game hard enough.

10- Playing Dead:
Probably one of the more devilish things you can do when playing a first-person shooter videogame, against other players. Although most wouldn’t admit it, there has been times were we’ve all suddenly laid down and stop moving, to trick the other player into thinking you’ve died. Whether it be that you don’t want to add yet another death to your tally or as a dirty tactic, to take the other player by surprise. It’s incredibly devilish and annoys the hell out of other players, but we’ve all done it anyway.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this list. I haven’t done a random list post in a while, so this post might seem a bit out of the blue to newer readers. But it’s just one the things to expect from this blog (as well as art and reviews). These lists are just something to give everyone a bit of a giggle and challenge my drawing skills a bit more.

Thanks for reading and if you ever want to see me make a post like this about something in particular. Leave it in the comments below and I’ll try my best to make that post happen.

Without a Bubble (No.8 & No.9)

No.8

thumbnail_20170714_213429I finally gave in and left myself at, that demon’s mercy.

thumbnail_20170714_213522But, I would never willingly, follow it again.

No.9

thumbnail_20170714_214358 (2)Fatigued and tormented by that demon, I started to look like a demon myself.

thumbnail_20170714_215452It was clear, fighting was never going to destroy, that demon and trying was destroying me.

He calls himself friend, so why be so cruel.

Lady Joker. How that A-hole made me feel.  

He begged me to show him, even though I told him I didn’t want to. He wouldn’t leave me at peace, until I did. I knew he would take them for face value and make no effort to understand. I was right. He took a 2 second look at each and made his judgement.

When I told him no, he acted like a child. Using emotional blackmail to get his way. Saying that, I was being unfair and acting like I don’t trust him. He said, I don’t let others in because I’m scared.

Honestly, I knew he was being manipulative and what he said was complete rubbish. He really doesn’t know me that well, if he thinks he can manipulate me in just a childish way. He could have made more of an effort. Recognised my true insecurities and blackmailed me with those, instead of conventional insecurities, I don’t even have.

bb6e4431-4ad2-46e4-855b-e8a918070d06He was starting to get on my last nerve and I was tired. I just wanted him to go away and leave me be. I thought if I showed him a few of my digital drawings, he would be satisfied and stop tormenting me. I was wrong. His hurtful remarks, were just redirected to having personal stabs at me.

7bddfe60-ce21-4021-8df1-36babfc471d8I had warned him, that I use drawing as an emotional outlet. So, what did he expect. They represent “negative” feelings, so aren’t going to be rainbows and ponies. There was no need to resort to name calling, saying I was dark, disturbed and a creep. That I was sick and needed help. The only thing I need help with is distancing myself from people like him.

My drawings aren’t even that dark. They are mostly just people, standing there doing nothing. How does that make me disturbed? Yeah, the people aren’t exactly happy and some are being haunted, but that’s just life. They aren’t doing anything horribly evil, so why judge me as “troubled”, based on a few drawings.

Self-Portrait

If I had drawn something filled with blood and gore, then yes, I could see where he was coming from. But I didn’t. I drew how I felt at that time. If he doesn’t like how I feel, I’d prefer he left me alone and keep his negativity to himself. If I am sick (like he said), then telling me in just a rude and taunting way, surely would only add to the matter and is not how you help an ill person. People like him will be the death of me.

Another Self-Portrait

If he had paid attention and didn’t just glance. If he tried to understand. Then he would see that I’m not disturbed or evil. Maybe he’s just not perceptive. Still, he didn’t need to be so mean. If he had said my drawing were rubbish and that I couldn’t draw for dung, then I wouldn’t have been hurt. After all, I wasn’t drawing for approval. I was drawing for me. They didn’t have to be master pieces. Their purpose was to stop me bottling my emotional and to prevent my mind from cracking. If anything, I’d call my drawings healthy. They are not mentally unwell.

1364b438-e244-4371-88f4-3ddd328cbf3fHis words hurt, but screw him. We all have struggles. If I want to let these feelings out, in a health and safe manner by drawing, then I’m going to. Bottling my feelings has only caused me more pain. If he doesn’t like what I drew, then he shouldn’t have annoyed me until I showed him.

Sorry for ranting a bit. This guy, that calls himself my friend, just really irritated me. It might sound like he was just concerned about me, but he is not. I think he gets off on making people feel awful and thought I’d make the perfect victim.

Black Butler reference. Love this drawing, so it ended up being my Header image. I drew it in a mood. Probably the only good thing to come out of being in a horribly mood.
