I had the same idea as someone in the earlier comments, so I figured I'd put my thoughts into text and get some opinions on it.


PART I: THE WALLS

'You don't know what you have until it's gone.' Just an old saying right? Well damn, I lived it.

We all woke up in the middle of a field, all 30 of us. No one really knew what was going on and everyone looked around, taking in the scenery. Then I saw it, and everyone followed my gaze to the huge bedrock wall in front of us, maybe 100 yards away. Someone shouted out, and we were all looking at an identical wall to the west, then the east and the south. We were trapped. Suddenly, a heard a voice in my head said quite sternly 'Do not leave the walls.' It repeated again and again, I thought I'd go insane, I guess someone beat me to the punch. Literally. She pounded at the bedrock wall with abandon, claiming she wouldn't be trapped like some kind of animal, until several people pulled her away from it.

The voice stopped. Able to concentrate again, I gazed around to size up potential threats and allies. I didn't have much time for this on account of the sun slowly dipping into the horizon. That meant night. Which meant I needed to get inside some kind of shelter or get ready to fight for my life.

-----

This is a really rudementary (in my opinion) organization of my thoughts but I sort of plan on highlighting the points the forums author did but add some story and character development. Suggestions and such are welcome.

I love how the griefers base looked at the end of it.

Its nothing really new. If you want to read about a real social experiment, look up the Standford Prison Experiment. Now that is REAL scary **** .

Dude, we learned about it in first year psychology class, people get power drunk its no big deal.
#33 to #15 - VaultTechy (09/24/2012) [-]
I learned about the Holocaust in first year History, does mean it isn't a big deal?

>Implying I think the deaths of six million jews is a bad thing
User avatar #16 to #15 - Jewssassin (09/23/2012) [-]
Scary as in it would ******* suck to be in that situation. This situation isnt much, there is no real risk since its only a video game.
#17 to #16 - RageGuyyourmom ONLINE (09/23/2012) [-]
I saw it more like an example of the real world, each nation is a guild and eventually we will run out of resources.
User avatar #18 to #17 - Jewssassin (09/23/2012) [-]
But limited resources experiments have been run all the time. This is nothing really new since we know that the likes of this can happen already.
#19 to #18 - RageGuyyourmom ONLINE (09/23/2012) [-]
and its still troubling.
User avatar #20 to #19 - Jewssassin (09/23/2012) [-]
No, what Im getting at here, is why are we praising someone who beats a dead horse?
#21 to #20 - RageGuyyourmom ONLINE (09/23/2012) [-]
Because the Standford Prison experiment was highly unethical and Zimbardo should have lost his license for it, I mean, **** man he should have stopped. The mental problems those people had I can't even imagine.
User avatar #22 to #21 - Jewssassin (09/23/2012) [-]
Thats still missing my point. This "Closed Map Experiment" is nothing new. He is beating a dead horse, but there are people amazed by results that we, the human race, and all other species on this planet have been living with since the beginning of life.

That was one of the most epic minecraft stories I've ever read. Which is kinda sad when you think about it.
#2 - randomersixonetwo (09/23/2012) [-]
That is extraordinary.

The Human Element

Outlined perfectly in one study this is what we are
a poison a plague to the world this is what most did not know
living their life the way they so please but in the end who really wins


No one
User avatar #42 to #36 - bongsly (10/09/2012) [-]
if you really think that humans are nothing but a plague
then why bother doing anything
the only person to comment on human civilisation
was other humans
User avatar #32 - Ninotori (09/24/2012) [-]
You think this is ****** scary? Read some experiments about UNLIMITED recourses.
#37 to #32 - stoopify ONLINE (09/24/2012) [-]
Got any links or names?
User avatar #40 to #37 - Ninotori (09/24/2012) [-]

It's called the Tragedy of the Commons. Garret Hardin wrote a famous article on it.
User avatar #26 - AlexK (09/24/2012) [-]
reminds me a bit of pokemon ghost black in terms of disturbing
#23 - pinksponge (09/24/2012) [-]
I seem to be getting a stumbleupon link and not the social experiment link. Interested in reading it though if anyone is willing to give me the experiment link!
#39 to #31 - pinksponge (09/24/2012) [-]
