also, looking through these old files??? its reminded me that in 2006 the highest (and id say still to this day most valuable) form of humor was "inviting your friend onto your multiplayer video game server onto a map which they think they are familiar with, but has actually been subtly altered and had secret and annoying rooms/messages/jokes added which are specifically tailored to said friend"

yeah in 2006 i was doin this ludonarrative storytelling yeah??? thats what i was doing when i was making counter strike maps with hammers that fell out of walls & played everyone's least-favorite songs

@jk this is the highest form of game design, I say this as someone who works on the fuckin things as a job

@jk "now see when you blow up the bomb on point b, right before you blow it up it says 'DO ALL YOUR SHOPPING' and right after it explodes it says 'AT WALMART' [horn] and long story short my friend is going to slap me and leave the room fuming after that"
