Has anyone else never even seen a Star wars movie...?

There's someone at my work who's never seen Star Wars....I don't know why it seems odd for a person never to have seen them, but it does I suppose if you ask a person to "name a science fiction movie", then 'Star Wars' is very likely to be one of the ones mentioned. It's such a huge and instantly recognisable part of pop-culture that it does seem odd to meet people who aren't aquainted with it.

I suppose, by comparison, I meet people who are surprised that I don't watch "Lost" or "True Blood" or "24" or any of the other modern day pop-culture shows. But I do feel, at least a little, that people who didn't see Star Wars when they were younger just sort of missed out on something

Anyone who didn't see the prequal trilogy missed out on nothing whatsoever

Hmm, I sence must fail in you young one!
Naa just kidding mate, but it is seriously your loss. Well besides from the fact that you have spared you eyes and ears from experiencing Jar jar.

I still say the order is IV, V, VI, I, II, III. The order in which they were made and they way most everyone saw them. The whole scientifical bacterial force thing....I like to thing that's just a by product. The force is still that mystical, encompassing field eneveloping and feeding all life that Yoda described. The midichlorians are just a by product of force sensitives being attuned to that mystical field.

I tried to watch them, couldn't make it through 'em. Yes, even the old ones.


I really love the universe, so I get the games and what not, but the movies always really just make me wince with the whole 'clear-cut good vs. evil' theme. I don't like morals being so dichotomous.

How are you not a nerd? You play *********** mmos. Only nerds do that. And this is an RPG on top of that. D&D is an RPG and so is this game. O and I have np with being called a nerd. Seems to me you have a problem with what you really are. lol and that's just sad.

But it is understandable you might not like SW. I can't bring myself to fully watch LOTR. But at least I have tried. Maybe you should try to at least try to watch the movies before you discredit them.

And why come to the SW discussion forum to ask this question? As you would say this is where all us SW nerds hangout to talk about SW.

so you play games and you consider yourself a noon nerd? only becouse someone has seen the movies do it not make you a nerd. to be honest to play this game and have never seen the movies is a disgrace. go and watch the movies in order IV, V VI, I, II and III. they are not that bad tbh. only the jar jar binks part. you my friend is also a nerd

This.


But even without this it is blatantly obvious that he is a raging troll. 1. he says he never watched the movies and that they are dull on a Star Wars forum 2. he calls everyone who have watched star wars (majority if not more than 90% of these forums) a nerd.

nice try troll, move along

P.S. tell us what server you will be playing on plz so we can all avoid any future contact.
Everything i have said above is my own opinion, take with a pinch of salt.

I don't understand how someone who has never watched Star Wars would want to play a Star Wars game..... Ah I get it......... your a Trekkie.

If you think that is good, you'll probably like star wars aswell.
