Video Games Vs. Real Life

Everything’s easier in the realm of video games where you can get money for nothing and drinks for, practically, free.

[via Dorkly]

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Not to mention being able to carry 500lb in swords, armour and shields and still jump 20ft crevices

    World of Warcraft used to be even worse than that, Jimmy. It wasn’t unusual for characters to be carrying two or more mounts, several hundred pounds of ore/metal bars, several meals and/or drinks, thousands of arrows, and stacks of potions in addition to whatever armor they’re wearing. One of the races actually uses an elephant (called an elekk) for a mount.
    Mounts are considered a spell now, so it isn’t as bad, but the sheer weight of everything they carry is still pretty crazy.

    sounds like they need to talk with an old infantryman about combat loads. once you’ve got your rifle, ammo and a couple of days rations everything else is excess weight.

    For those who never played a dice and paper RPG. The device/ magic item we all tried to get was a bag of holding. Really big ones could be used as a place to get away from it it all. Never seal it when your inside you could suffocate in a few hours. A medium sized one made collecting copper and silver worth while. We used to call players carrying more weapons then they could ever use a Duck. As in Howard the Duck from the comic books.
