If you game, it’s probably just a hobby. You kick back, turn on your computer or Xbox or what-have-you, and you enjoy an evening of fun and games. But for some people the game is a lot more. Especially in South Korea where games like Starcraft have become a career. If only I were kidding. Okay, it’s from Cracked, so it’s not the most reliable source of information, but it has the essentials down: names of some of the big players, players who moved to Korea for a career in Starcraft playing, fun times in Starcraft.
So I started looking to other sources, namely Wikipedia. Again, not exactly a reliable source, but for a place that has articles on nearly every single Harry Potter character, surely it would have something on professional Starcraft playing. And sure enough, they do. In fact, there’s an entire category devoted to professional Starcraft players and a template. If that’s not devotion to documenting the world’s knowledge, I don’t know what is. Especially since some of these articles appear to be well-documented.
We know who’s documenting the world’s knowledge now. My fellow nerds…well, while they’re not playing Starcraft.
