it was not until recently that this really started to bother me. watching the video game pleb awards on spike really nailed it home however.
the word 'epic' is so overused nowadays that its just cancerous.
ask someone how this song sounds
chances are youll be flooded with responses of 'omg so epic', 'hurr nostalgia durr', 'wotlk was the best derp'.
do people even understand what the word epic means anymore? its just infuriating. what kills me the most is hearing people use it to describe things that arent art, historical, or winning.
alongside with the purples in WoW, the word epic has depreciated so far from its original usage.
to support my claim, just see here http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=epic
im not alone.
