Sometimes people send me humor links that are rather funny but are a bit on the old school side. I've decided to gather a bunch of these together for your amusement with a little bonus at the end. So, travel back to a more innocent age when people thought the release of Duke Nukem Forever was right around the corner and the Everquest webpage looked something like this.
I've linked to Belan the Looter before but even more old-school are the hilarious adventues of Galad the Looter. I wish I played UO in its heyday.
For more UO fun, check out Spleen's adventures. Some of them are actually rather recent. For instance, in one of his tales he maroons a player named Jack Sparrow on a desert island. Now that's griefing with a poetic touch.
This Everquest humor page links to Fansy, whom I've, of course, honored already, but also contains a collection of the posts of Skater Gnome. These are some funny satires written in the voice of a young player who plays Everquest when he's grounded and is fascinated by ice cream.
Staying on the original Everquest theme, check out this musical flash animation entitled, "Anybody Seen My Corpse?" There are some very funny lines.
If you are in the mood for more Everquest flash fun check out this page for some funny animations.
Edit: Thanks to Anskiere from the Aggro Forums for directing me to the music of Richie Truxillo who has bunch of old school Everquest tunes like Rat Killer, The Server's Down Again and If I Had a Billion Platinum. They're nice acoustic tunes and pretty funny so check them out.
And now for my old school bonus. I ran into this cool archive of video game commercials. Of course, the first thing I did was find the Everquest ones. This one for LDoN is actually not bad. But the commercial for Everquest Online is simply hilarious. The cheesy business dude saying, "It's time to slay the dragon," into his cell phone and the woman who apparently likes to style her hair EQ style and play in costume crack me up.
In the non-MMO arena you might like this bizzare PS2 commercial featuring golfers being attacked by porn stars. There's also this funny and nostalgic commercial for Vanguard (no, not the upcoming MMO, the old Atari game). I don't know who Luther is supposed to be but he kind of scares me. Hey, if I was Sigil Games I would just re-use this commercial for Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
