Single Status Update
So, after catching some flack from family and friends over my Dooming, I finally decided that I needed to explain to them this wasn't a complete waste of my time. So, I wrote this series of short "essays" on why I map for Doom. I hoped to post it here tomorrow, but I have a final and work, so I wouldn't have time to write the final part. Thought maybe some of you would be interested in another person's perspective. Anyways, you can find links to each part below, should you be so interested.
NOTE: I don't actually expect you to read these. They aren't really expertly written, and were done more for a personal reason than anything else. I thought it'd be cool to share my thoughts with other Doomers, though.

I was expecting a philosophical argument but all I got was a "daddy played doom with me" story.
You've got nothing telling you what to do with your life. You happen to exist (recently experienced the alternative and I'm feeling existential), so you can do whatever the hell you want. Your family just wants you to act in a way that they won't have to worry about you, or in a way that they can brag to their friends.Hellbent said:

I recently coaxed a girl into playing doom for the first time.

I think Doom is timeless and cartoony enough to come off as a casual game though, if instead of proving that you know the source code inside and out, that you are just a player.
I disagree. The game that I think should really be called casual is WoW. So you're a 'gamer girl' because you sit in the auction house and play Peggle? BULLSHIT
