Last week we posted a weekly rundown of SWTOR Memes we collected around the web. The article was well received, but some people asked us about what this meme thing is, so here’s a more than a little information on that. I pronounce it so it’s rhymes with ‘dream’; some pronounce it so it sounds like ‘mem’ (from mem-ory).
Internet memes usually are formed from some social interaction (Rage comic or reaction faces), pop culture reference (Xzibit in “Yo Dawg” or Bear Grylls in “Better drink my own piss”), or situation people often find themselves in (Socially Awkward Penguin or Futurama Fry / Not Sure If X). Many memes also come from video games (such as the “arrow in the knee” from The Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim). For researchers it’s hard to track down the birthplace of memes due to their viral nature, as well as the high chance of the meme spreading to the major websites nearly instantly.
Check out what we got for you this week below:
