Animal Crossing Is Tragic
No, this is not MY mother that's being talked about. Also, to people Digging this: STOP. Max is not a millionaire. If this becomes another HTPAT, it will probably get changed again and NO ONE will get to be touched by it.

though this is probably supposed to be a heart warming story, I found it downright hilarious, especially when the kid played the game and thought his real mom sent him all those presents!
November 18th, 2007
(1)
Can you explain the game more, what the presents are...
November 18th, 2007
(0)
Basically, when you send another person in the game an item, it shows up as a 'present' in the mail.
November 18th, 2007
(-2)
[ comment is below rating threshold and has been hidden ]
(-2)
Presents are items that you collect in-game by finding them, completing various tasks, etc. If you have a village on the same memory card as another player (or if someone else's card is in the same Gamecube), you can send a present to their village.
November 18th, 2007
(0)
Well there are 4 houses in the village, each with a mailbox. You can write a letter on the stationery item and affix an item to it (like a piece of furniture or a cute shirt) and then mail it to one of the other villagers so they can receive it when they log on and check their mail.

So this is something she played by herself, on a console, not as an online thing, or a web community. ?
November 18th, 2007

That always boggled my mind, how could you send a freaking sofa and manage to fit it inside a mailbox, let alone being able to carry it in your pocket?

IKEA is working on that as we speak...
November 18th, 2007

Yeah, it's a console game that up to 4 people can have their own character and house in. When you turn the game on, you tell it which character you are. It's a lot like Harvest Moon except a major draw of the game is decorating your house from a selection of hundreds of items.
November 18th, 2007
(0)
It's on a console (not online), but the game plays out like an online community. Days pass by in real-time in the game, regardless of whether or not it is turned on, and NPC's will notice how long you've been gone. Up to 4 people can make characters in one town, but (being on Gamecube) only one can be "logged on" at a time.
November 18th, 2007
(0)
Now that I think about it, you can send presents to other people who own the game by giving them specific passwords to say at the store. To do this, though, you need to know and enter the other person's in-game name and town name, or else it doesn't work. So, theoretically, this could be an online game.
November 18th, 2007

http://www.gamespot.com/gamecube/rpg/animalcrossing/. It's a strangely addictive game. I played it for six months on a regular basis. Then one day I said what the hell am I playing and never touched it again. Then someone broke into my apartment and stole my Gamecube, Xbox and all my games along with a lot of other stuff and I never saw them again.

Rather than spending her last days with her kids, she spent them alone in a room playing a game spending hours getting frivolous gifts on a stupid game. Lots of parents spend hours at work working for money they don't really need "to provide a better life" for their kids, rather than providing a better life for their kids. When the disconnect between intent and reality is so wide, it is called neglect, not generosity.

Korf, look up "multiple sclerosis" on wikipedia, then f*ck yourself and die.
November 19th, 2007
(8)
I thought that people with multiple sclerosis were still human. It's a debilitating disease, not a dehumanizing disease. Ethics and morality still apply to sufferers of multiple sclerosis. You treating them as less-than-human is highly insulting, and I'm sure you do the same for any disabled person. Her case speaks to the superficiality of many societies, however, regardless of her medical situation. Just because you're dying sooner doesn't mean you should waste what you have left; in fact, the opposite.

"Morality is relative and worthless." - Korf41
November 19th, 2007
(0)
i think the thing is, korf, she couldn't really DO anything at all for her kids. im getting the feeling her kids were grown at this point and they were still living together because her quality of life would've sucked *ss without people around. since she was kind of bed ridden, and couldn't physically do anything with or for her kids, this was the next best thing
November 19th, 2007
(2)
Morality is relative and worthless. That doesn't mean that people don't believe in it. Anyways, what she did is clearly unethical, and most non-amoral people would find it immoral. MS people that can play video games can spend time with their kids. As for your other speculation, it's speculation. Anyways, this was all a big farce, and a good one, but if this were a real person, it would be either a tale of tragic delusion or serious negligence. Either way, it's not generosity.

Morality is based on logic and reason. If you think morality is relative and worthless then your only method of making decisions and taking action would be EMO-tion. F*ggot.
November 19th, 2007
(0)
Are you joking? Most people only believe that morality is POSSIBLE if passed down from an omnipotent Creator. That's called dogma, not reason. Morality is the concept that there are immutable "right" and "wrong". That's a silly concept. Some people develop their own morality based on something such as humanitarianism or some such ideal, but you can always make up your own so as to make you good and everyone else evil. Thus, vapidity.
November 19th, 2007
(-1)
Logic *is* immutable. And yeah there are immutable rights and wrongs. Every action can be seen from its consequences to be beneficial, destructive, or neutral to human life. So if someone likes diet coke over pepsi it's not a moral issue. But if they like killing random people and dancing in their flayed skin remains for S&G then guess what buddy, that is *universally evil*. Read moar Ayn Rand.
November 19th, 2007
(0)
"Every action can be seen from its consequences to be beneficial, destructive, or neutral to human life." I certainly wouldn't agree with that, especially not to only one in isolation. I certainly would not agree that all moral systems must hold that something that is beneficial to human life is good, destructive bad, etc. In fact, just trying to wrap my head around the glaring inconsistencies of that idea is making my head hurt. Provide a logical proof and we'll talk, but YOU CAN'T. Kant can't, either.
November 19th, 2007
(-2)
"I certainly would not agree that all moral systems must hold that something that is beneficial to human life is good, destructive bad, etc." If human life is not the highest ideal in your moral beliefs then you are inherently destructive to others and self destructive, as when given a choice, you choose something else other than your own or your fellow human beings lives. Thus moral relativity just becomes an excuse to justify being a criminal. Screw Kant, read Rand. Srysly.

Korf, you're missing one big point in your rant. She stopped playing the game as her symptoms worsened.
November 19th, 2007

"I DO NOT CARE IF SHE WAS IMMOBILE AND COULD BARELY TALK SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN SPENDING TIME WITH HER FAMILY! NOT COOKING OR CLEANING OR TAKING SHOWERS OR ANYTHING AT ALL HOBBY WISE, JUST SHOVING HERSELF UP HER FAMILY'S ASSES, PERIOD! SHE DIDN'T I HOPE SHE DIES AND GOES TO HELL NOW!"-Korf.
November 19th, 2007
(-1)
"Korf, you're missing one big point in your rant. She stopped playing the game as her symptoms worsened." I don't see what that says. It's a fake story, but when her symptoms worsened she was in a less fit state t spend time with her family as she had just wasted the last healthy portion of her life on a video game. As for Randian guy, "Ayn Rand said it" is not a logical proof, and objectivism is a silly philosophy. Just because someone argues for a moral system doesn't make it the only one.
November 19th, 2007
(0)
Korf, I don't really buy the story either. But you're also basing a lot of assumtion into what is really not explained. She can still spend time with her family and still obsess over the game. When you're wheel chair bound and kids have school or work there is a lot of free time during the day. There is also free time during the evening if kids are off doing other things.
November 19th, 2007
(0)
That's a good point, although obsession was a poor use in the sentimentalized context if it is to be taken lightly. That the mom spent all that time getting in-game presents is entirely frivolous, though, and her time really could have been spent better on anything including watching paint dry. At least she'd have a unique experience to talk to her kids about.

I know that he believes in a universal moral law. It's just too bad that his arguments are poor and nobody else believes in him. Philosophy is not sophistry. Arguing something doesn't make it true.
November 19th, 2007

Then what is truth and reality? Is electricity not real because I can't actually see electrons flowing through a wire? Is gravity not real because I can't actually experience it directly, only observe its effects on myself and things around me? If you truly know nothing then you cannot deduce anything and logic becomes meaningless. If *that* were true then humans wouldn't have walked on the moon much less figured out how to make fire.

Heh, nice logical comeback. I see where you are coming from, and I do respect your intelligence but I disagree, profoundly, with your world view. A lot of flaws in Kant's philosophy and some good ideas on answers to the problems he posed with his arguments can be found on this site http://www.importanceofphilosophy.com/ Check it out, or not.

a lot of controversy over this site. i'm sticking with "damn" because it evoked emotion. tub girl or not, anything that can get-wrench me up like that deserves a little something extra from me. it's not a stolen gif, IMO, the user cited a specific link and has stated that he is not the creator. no one rags on you guys when you f*cking straight copy a movie sequence (which you did not make) and loop it, or when you post the popular internet meme of the day and everyone on ytmnd thinks it's funny too.

it's just dumb to rag on this user who broke no protocol in submitting this. the user was obviously moved enough to share it with us, if you don't agree then suck the bloody corny sh*t right out of my *ssh*le.

"no one rags on you guys when you f*cking straight copy a movie sequence" ... of course I do. This site is supposed to be a creative outlet for its members, not an image dump. If you can't conjure up any creative energy, then go somewhere else and dump your images in the appropriate channels. If you're looking for "cool stuff from around the internet", there are plenty of websites for that. Posting this here is akin to going to 4chan for intelligent conversation or putting a toilet on the ceiling.

Much of ytmnd content is rehashed from something else. While this isn't an original work it is something I haven't seen before and appreciate. As for depressing, the holocaust is something that is extremely depressing to study and learn about, but the benefits are that you can recognize what happened in the past to prevent it from happening in the future. That's a lot more important than being happy all the time.

It was said by Otto von Bismark, that "Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others". By learning of the experiences of others and their stories, no matter how painfull, we re-think and re-evaluate our own lives, hopefully making us wiser, stronger, and more capable of better choices and priorities in life.

I'm not rating the story. The story is fine. I'm rating RySenkari's site, which is "A Story Stolen From The Internet." Don't let his title mislead you. If RySenkari were to post a poem by Robert Frost, would you go "5, good poem"? Rating content rather than rating a site's merit is stupid. If you want to post stolen content, post it on the forums where people won't rate it as your own or provide a link to it on the forums. The front page is for sites which are made by the sites' creators.

What about the fact that, not being a Korean Animal Crossing forum scanner, I wouldn't have seen this content. I wasn't gonna vote until Korf's illogical "content vs. site" argument. The dude admits it is not his own story, puts the sad Zanarkand music on it, and it's a sweet little thing. Who cares if it was posted elsewhere, this is the first place that most of YTMND has seen it, and it's muddafuggin heartwarming. 5.

"The original message board post with the story at IGN no longer exists, and the site of the artist who drew this is in Korean. So the two original images are the closest I can get."

When sh*t like this gets popular and digged a thousand times, a thousand more RySenkaris come to this site and post stolen material with some stupid sentimental garbage and it will shoot to the top. Imagine that. You'll have nightmares, too, hank. And, no, I don't have nightmares and, no, I can't hear myself "speak" on ytmnd, and, no, I'm not typing in a vacuum. That someone is engaging in a conversation doesn't mean that they "just want to hear themselves speak." That's silly anti-intellectual propaganda.

First off, I did NOT get this from 4Chan, I got it from a topic posted at GameFAQs. I posted it in YTMND form in the hope that I would get a spot in the Up and Coming for an hour or two, and an eventual 3.9, 100 votes rating. I had NO idea it would take off like it did, and frankly, I don't care. I've read the comments that have been posted about it, and I'm glad I was able to touch the hearts of as many people as I did.

Have a tough time grasping metaphors? Would it be better if I said he loves reading what he types because that sounds stupid to me? You've never met anyone who rattles on and on when everything that needed to be said was said within the first two sentences? When I read Korf's comments the sound of Frasier Crane enters my head.

When I read hanktherapper's comments the sound of Frasier Crane enters my head. (Actually, the sound of George W. Bush might be closer.) All you're opening up is a game of rubber and glue. Nobody is going to win. If you think I am expounding too much on a simple topic, whatever. I'm saying what I feel like saying and other people are reading it. If that's such a horrible thing then I guess I'm just going to have to live with myself. Your comments are mere mudslinging.

You know what happens. Somebody floats a rumor that causes you to ask a question. And that's the game in YTMND politics. Korf refuses to play it. That is a game, and you just fell for the trap and Korf refuses to play.

That is a beautiful story. This is a beautiful YTMND. Whether digital or in real life, love for the world and our parents is somthing we can never let go of. my hats off to you good sir, an epic victory. *sniff*

That's sad. Too bad my mom's a bitch, she would never do that for me. Even if she was a cripple.

Well this was a nice change of pace. Of course I'm too cool to cry *forces back tears*. I am now awaiting someone to take this and turn it into a fad or something. We'll have people throwing NEDM in there. People adding strobe lights and calling it a rave. The boy will be replaced with sonic and the mom with the Terminator.

That's very emotional. I'm sorry about your mom, and I have to agree with you on the moral of the story. Love your parents, or even extend that and love your entire family the most you can while you still have the chance. Great YTMND; 5'd.

I have news for you: Life sucks. If everyone posted every sad story they ever heard onto YTMND, well, I'm pretty sure you can imagine how awesome THAT would be. Sorry for being a douche about it, but thats just my opinion.

in the US and some of the more 'civilized' areas of the world, yes, it has been cured... however it is still a plight in some countries that can't afford the proper medicine to treat it.

what are you talking about? theirs a vaccine, in fact i think it was the fist vaccine. None the less it is a powerfull story, and one should never underestimate the power of a good story, or for that mater, the power of a good storyteller. on the other hand it may very well be real.

I just wanted to say I can relate to your sentiments probably more than anyone else on this page. I lost my dad to cancer this year so I see your point. Your site was well done and touching and is deserving of a five and a favorite. People don't appreciate what they have until they lose it.

In all seriousness, there's an in-game mother for your character who periodically sends you these presents with generic messages attached to them. Whoever made this comic is hilariously mistaken.
November 19th, 2007

OMG
November 19th, 2007

can anyone else that played it confirm this? it deserves 5's for its hilarity if so
November 19th, 2007

That is true, but it tells you if the game from "the mother" or another character.
November 19th, 2007
(1)
Yeah, the message in-game has the character's image attached if it comes from another player. I think the author of the story would have known the difference.
November 19th, 2007
(0)
If this is indeed true, the story takes on an even more interesting and "tragic" twist. Instead of these presents being from the mother and therefore acting as a comforting message after death, they represent empty wishes. Joke's on us?
