Warning, I’m making a big relevancy stretch here, just for the sake of mentioning Star Wars.
Lisa Mason, a writer for SW:TOR Strategies, found a forum member’s odd but relevant post about how Star Wars spans and unites generations. The user is a little shaky on spelling (and English maybe?) but you’ll get the idea. And since I’m a nice guy, I’ll give you the TL;DR right now…
Basically, a dude and his wife were at a garage sale, and this particular sale was being put on by a grandfather and grandson. The grandson had a laptop and somehow was on the “Star Wars: The Old Republic” website. You know, because if you ever want to finish the internet, you’ve got to do that site as well. Grandson asks grandfather what Star Wars is (which makes it weird that he was on the site, but whatever), and the grandfather explains a little and mentions that he (the grandfather) and his son (the grandson’s dad) went to see the “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” when it first came out in theaters. The kid showed his grandfather his laptop and said that “The Old Republic” was like “World of Warcraft” but with Star Wars characters – and the grandfather thought it’d be great to play as a Jedi. Blah blah blah, everyone hugs and life goes on.
Okay, so I might have just given you a TL;DR as long as the original. Whatever.
