Hey, first comic and already a dig at my main non-videogame hobby. LARPing's not so bad, as long as you stay away from the people who drag the in-character drama into out-of-character drama. And generally stick to hitting things.
And no, not with foam balls while screaming "LIGHTNING BOLT, LIGHTNING BOLT". Even LARPers think that's incredibly stupid.
On topic, good point about attaching plot to games. Narrative just isn't always needed. Hell, even at my local LARP we often end up dropping the RP and it's just "CIRCLE OF TREACHERY! Everyone has five hits, all vs all, any weapon, go!"
And that's how games like Unreal Tournament should be. Hit and kill and capture the flag and have fun.
Is this comic going to focus on Unreal, or is it going to be any game? (is there a name for still-frame comic machinima? like this and Concerned.)
