So I'm seeing these ForumWarz ads all over the place, and thinking...ok sounds interesting. I guess. Went to try it out (it's freeeeee! - sort of.) and got lost in a jumble of confused information and directions. But apparently here, on this simulated world that is the internet, with all its simulated interaction...Forumwarz creates a simulation OF the simulation, in which you have to hack, troll, whore, or emo your way into pwning the fake message boards they show you. Who the hell spent the time creating all those characters and writing message board threads for them all? You go into simulated existing forums to do this stuff, after all; and they have ongoing conversations that you have to pwn.
Needless to say, this sounded extremely mega- well, META. Which makes it either too cool or too stupid for words. It's kind of like in Rockstar Games' "Bully", where to win certain challenges you have to play arcade games like "ConSUMO" against the nerds and beat their scores to win the clubhouse. Only in a really goony way. It's not like a mini-game, either; it's a simulation simulation.
Then to make it even skeezier, there are REAL message boards in there for people who PLAY the game, adding to the overall incomprehensibility of what you're trying to do. One of the threads on the "real" forums says "No trolling here" and you're like...is it a test? What the hell am I trying to accomplish? This is weird.
Finally it hit me, since there are so many 4-chan memes in it, it might be a good idea to see how they review such an exercise. I wasn't disappointed - I got more laughs from the Encyclopaedia Dramatica entry on the game than I did from playing the hour or so that I played. Also, it's not free if you actually want to progress. So there's that.
But for a few lulz, do read the intro to the ED game review; it's definitely good for some laughs. Skip the game.
