no, airsoft guns are cool. while yes, i will ocasionally take part in nerf battles, i say that airsoft and paintball are betterIVhorseman wrote:Is it to me or are Nerf guns clearly superior to airsoft/paintball/laser tag?
here's my reasoning: yes, it's nowhere near as "cool" as taking a solid black gun and shooting several tiny plastic beads into your friend at 200 rounds per minute. Nerf guns often misfire, darts can be easily dodged, you have to pick up your ammo, and the guns aren't realistic and are painted in glaring yellow and purple.
Now take a step back and think about it: are airsoft guns really that cool? Fact of the matter is, you're playing pretend with a bunch of plastic guns and shooting at eachother.
Now we go back to Nerf guns. They're not trying to be realistic. They know exactly what they are: gigantic oversized foam darts that stick to walls. In this sense, Nerf guns are inherently hilarious. They can be fired indoors without fear of breaking things, it's a whole lot harder to lose your ammunition after it's fired, and Nerf guns tend to be cartoonish versions of real guns. You're not playing pretend anymore. You're just hitting someone with a comically-large foam dart. Hilarious indeed.

Which forces you to get up-close and personal with your opponent, which is coincidentally close enough to call each other names and shout cheesy one-liners.
