Default Have you ever cried (literally shed tears) over Everquest or other video games?

I've been noticing on RNF that there are many accusations of "crying" or individuals reveling in their adversary's tears. A quick search shows that there's hundreds and hundreds of posts on P99 forums with the word tear. Sure some related to child's tear, doze tears, but they're mostly about people crying.

Exhibit A
Search: Keyword(s): tear
Showing results 1 to 25 of 500
Search took 0.17 seconds.

So let's be honest, have you ever cried over a video game?

My younger brother got done with the old 'pay me now, item is in the bank' scam in EC circa 2001. I'm 99% sure he cried over that lost Lamentation.

I have cried every time Swish posted a cutting remark about BDA.

Yep in 1999 I lost a corpse in Blackburrow at level 6 with full leather. Spent 5 days searching for it until I accidentally fell in the piranha pit and found it. I'm sure some tears were shed.

Never has anyone been so immersed before. Never will anyone be so immersed after. That was peak immersion and all we can do is hope to strive towards it going forward.

This is why I'm pushing for P99 to throw away the Titanium client and embrace the Trilogy client currently being worked on by those who acquired the EQClassic code base.

I cry every time someone capitalizes on the opportunity to inflict tears before me

But didn't realize that this is more like... P99's 4chan or something.

except instead of random anons its a shark attack of a small clique that posts here all the time. so he's doubly fucked.

Need details

There were some times in Ultima Online where I was brought to near tears but I am not sure I ever actually let one shed. If you think EQ scamming was bad LOL try UO circa 1999. Scamming/griefing was basically fully sanctioned and promoted by GMs. "Git gud" defines the time very well
