I think in the past week I’ve managed to join a cult. Nothing major; I’m not looking for contributions, or telling people to praise Cthulhu or Ao; but I do end up spending vast amounts of time with the same people whose vision is obscured from my sight.
OK, so it’s not exactly the same. I am of course talking about XBOX Live, and have found myself a bunch to play with frequently. The reason I say cult instead of team, clan, or squad is because it’s generic playing. I do it purely for the game, I couldn’t care less about competition or organised battles.
I have spent the last month now with the same person, constantly battling for more achievements, while more and more ‘members’ show up. It’s possible that I have hit the grand-master status myself, since I am always there, and seem to have control. Frankly, if this was a pyramid scheme, I’d be up a lot of cash.
