WE ARE NOT THE ONLY CRAZY …….

LIFE ON THE INTERNET

Marcelo Yalj – Player of Quake


“One guy, from playing Quake so much, the woman sent him to the psychologist, and the psychologist told him that through Quake he was channeling a sexual problem, it’s an interesting sight, but the psychologist seems to be a jerk.” She slides the phrase, squinting and releasing the smoke from her cigarette. He calls himself Monster, his battle name in Quake’s endless online sessions. “It seems to me a more twisted look than it really is: a game.”

“I do not go on the street thinking about the Quake, there are people who go crazy, they get very bad if they lose. He is 22 years old, lives alone and never lasted more than two months with a girl. “They do not care about Quake. I do not think there’s a woman who can win. If I get to find her, would I play cards?

“I started to play about five years ago, while I was playing, I started chatting with my rivals, to whuppiness or whatever, so I met other kids?” With them he started to go to Quake’s Internet City server ( http: // www .ciudad.com.ar ) every night.The consequence was the Lan party.

“We got together in one ‘s house and set up a network to play between us, the first ones were in Chacarita, we were going from Martinez, each with his computers, we were roasted – a shit usually – and we continued until the next noon.

Turn on another cigarette and staring at nothing, as if thinking out loud, continues: Two or three months ago I did not go to a Lan party, that killing and killing people made you tired.

NO SOMOS LOS UNICOS LOCOS…….

VIDA EN INTERNET

Marcelo Yalj – Jugador de Quake

“A un tipo, de tanto jugar al Quake, la mujer lo mandó al psicólogo. Yel psicólogo le dijo que a través del Quake estaba canalizando un problema sexual. Es una visión interesante, pero el psicólogo me parece un pelotudo.” Desliza la frase entrecerrando los ojos y soltando el humo de su cigarrillo. Se hace llamar Monster, su nombre de batalla en las interminables sesiones de Quake por Internet. “Me parece una mirada más retorcida de lo que es en realidad: un juego.”

“No voy por la calle pensando en el Quake. Hay gente que se enloquece, que se pone muy mal si pierde. Yo no.” Tiene 22 anos, vive solo y nunca duró más de dos meses con una chica. “A ellas no les interesa el Quake. No creo que haya una mujer que pueda ganar. Si llego a encontrarla, me dedicaría a jugar a las cartas?

“Empecé a jugar hace unos cinco años. Mientras jugaba me ponía a chatear con mis rivales, para putear o lo que sea. Así conocí a otros pibes? Con ellos empezó a entrar al servidor de Quake de Ciudad Internet (http://www.ciudad.com.ar) todas las noches. La consecuencia fueron las Lan party.

“Nos juntábamos en la casa de uno y armábamos una red para jugar entre nosotros. Las primeras fueron en Chacarita. Ibamos desde Martínez, cada uno con su computadoras. Hacíamos asado – una cagada por lo general – y seguíamos hasta el mediodía siguiente.”

Prende otro cigarrillo y mirando a la nada, como pensando en voz alta, continúa: Hace dos o tres meses que no voy a una Lan party, eso de matar y matar gente te cansa”.
