    Default God's Revenge: Fire, floods, thieves and... game collections

    In fictional video games, God is the final boss and the main characters kill him. In non-fiction reality, God has the last laugh. He burns games, he floods games, and with the help of Satan, taps into the dark side of humans and convinces them to become thieves and steal games.

    When a traffic accident happens, although it is a tragic event, many passersby, whether on foot or by car cannot help but to take a look at the scene of the tragedy. They know they're not going to like what the see (blood, fire, corpses etc) but they cannot help their morbid curiosity.

    When someone's game collection goes up in fire, we too cannot help but to click the thread and read up on all its disturbing details. For every wellwisher posting prayers for the unfortunate soul who lost his game collection, there are 10 lurkers thinking "this world really is screwed up but I can't help reading about it!"

    As a gamer, these are the sort of "traffic accidents" that I stop my car for. It reminds you how insignificant you really are in this world. I've read about many game collections that went up in smoke but funnily enough, I can't find them anymore. Perhaps you can help. I will only be listing ones where significant amounts of games were stolen etc, not just a few games or consoles.

    http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/in...p?topic=7366.0
    Origin of news: Famicom World forum thread
    Damages: Fire burns down $50,000+ Famicom collection including many rare and priceless things. Owner of collection suffers second-degree burns. Customers of the owner also financially affected or delays in product delivery.
    Post-disaster: Status and whereabouts of collection owner unknown.

    More to come when I find them. I might also expand the thread to include other interesting morbid things like convicted murderers that had active forum (1000+ posts) accounts (Neo Geo forums).

    Now to be fair, was it god who burned the games? Or was the fire started by someone smoking in bed..

    Seriously though people I really hate it when God and Satan team up to convince me to steal video games.

    Well, we are his children and since God is omnipotent, if the game collection fire was started up by someone smoking in bed then yes, it was God's plan to set this chain reaction into motion.

    As you know, it is the Devil Satan who reflects the evil nature of man. It is up to man to resist the Devil's encouragement of committing sins. Which is convenient because it gives God a smokescreen and a scapegoat. God wants to destroy video games (because video game protagonists kill God) but he doesn't want to dirty his own hands, you know what I mean?

    Well, what about Wisdom Tree games? I bet god loves those...

    Satan, however, has every LJN nintendo game sealed and VGA graded.

    Seems pretty clear to me, man.
    You see, in fictional video games like mario brothers, god is the final boss and god is also the main character (aka 'him').
    And so, because the protagonist, god, wants to kill the final boss, god, god wants to kill video games, because god kills god.

    Whats not to understand?

    Perhaps this should be moved to offtopic.

    Yep, he started making some pointlessly sexist remarks and Frankie removed him. I've no idea what the hell this thread is about.

    I think I sort of get what you mean, and it's not just with games.

    honestly, stuff happens but no 'good' god (if really existed) would let his "children" suffer so. Religion is brain washing at its best.

    That opening post is one of the meanest things I've read.
    I'm pretty sure if there's such a thing as being a "bad" Christian (or other religion), that post is it.
