"Xerath Is An Extremely Good Farmer..."

There are a few farmers round my way who look like that.

I was just watching this League of Legends champion spotlight (below) over at PCG and couldn’t help feeling a bit weird. On the one hand I’m deeply embedded in enough in the general jargon and conceits of gaming to basically know that the guy narrating the Xerath reveal is going on about, but on the other I am aware that I definitely don’t understand the significance of this six minute overview within the context of the game and its other heroes. When alien archaeologists are digging up our fossilised internet from a cold, dead Earth in a billion years time, I wonder whether they will bother to try and decode all the games we played. It’d only take one slip up of inference on Extra-Terrestrial Time Team to imagine that were a culture that did little other than hover over icons to compare the specifications of our virtual equipment and/or skill loadout against another. Hell, maybe that’s precisely what we’ll end up being, if League Of Legends gets any more popular.
