Stop doing this voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0F4HtyytH8I 10:30
It isn’t scary, it’s awkward and cheesy. It intimidates no one. It is a childish way to pretend to be crazy.
Since I stupidly forgot to hit record, I’ll just have to share a story from today:
I play DayZ with my older brother all the time. I just got my other younger brother into the game. Me and older bro both chipped in to get him a copy.
He picked up on how to play pretty quickly, but there’s a lot to learn. He’s up in Novy Boro fighting zombies, I’m down in Kozlovka, heading up toward him, watching his gameplay on a webcam and giving him advice. [Oldest brother was too busy to play]
I ran into another player who was AFK in a house and left him alone. He got back on keyboard eventually and tried to follow me around, it sounded like he was RPing a country folk type guy. Unfortunately, I had my hands full training my brother how to play, and didn’t want to hang with this guy. I ditched the guy in that town and headed northeast to my brother.
He somehow caught up with me twice more. I should have told him to leave me alone and sorry, but instead I tried tricking him by telling him to meet me at a church in, and then I ran to the next town.
Once again, he caught up with me. :/
Now he’s doing that stupid unoriginal “psycho” voice bullcrap. He says something like “Thanks for meeting up with me”, all sarcastic and bitter.
Hilariously, there WAS another church in the town that I had run to, and I tried to bluff again.
*pointing at new church* “Yep, yeah, this one, yup. Good job, we’re here.” o_o
“oohh reaaally…. you know, I don’t like it when people try to leeaaavve meeee….”
Now I’m getting annoyed. Guy went from RPing a country guy to this cringy emo crap. I don’t want to hang with him, I just want to meet up with my brother.
I jog around some buildings and into the church while troubleshooting for my brother, guiding him step by step on how to make rags out of a shirt, hoping this guy would lose interest and leave.
He follows me into the church, and starts his “crazy” talk again.
I snapped. “Okay, let’s fucking do this, fucking edgelord.” I pull out my bat[spiked], and pulls out his axe. “That voice isn’t fucking creepy dude, it’s fucking ackward, and-”
I side step him and knock him out with one blow to the head, pure luck. [It was so smoothly done. I really wish I had recorded this]
It was an immensely satisfying moment.
Also, the shotgun and 45. rounds were great, since my brother had found a 1911, and some shotgun rounds. Peanut butter and jelly.
In conclusion: Don’t do that voice. It’s childish, and I hate anyone who does it. You cannot be taken seriously after doing that.
