Just reading that thinking thats true that would be awesome shame we live in a world filled with a consumer market that will lead us further down this dark path.

Man, that was funny.
Lots of good points in there, though I will have to disagree with the final point (had some issues caused by having my PS2 on its side).
EDIT: Unless of course it was sarcasm. In any case, not a big deal. :P

Nice stuff.

Yah, he was probably being sarcastic...

And that article was funny, yet informative. A good mix.

I love that article... I love it because it happens to just be so right.
Currently playing:

Rocket Slime (DS)             Guitar Hero II (PS2)
Resistance (PS3)               Zelda (Wii)

So many good games, so little time...

Every gamer hard-core or not has had these thoughts go through their heads at one point or another. But when you see it on paper you can almost laugh at yourself. (and then get made at game developers) :P


I like this from the article it brings back so many memorys

"Instant-Failure Stealth Levels. Ack. This brings back horrible memories of a Goldeneye level where if you tripped an alarm, an infinite number of bad guys poured forth. We knew a man who failed that level 37 times, then got the Infinite Health cheat for it and came back. He intentionally tripped the alarm, the guards rushed out. Laughing maniacally, he proceeded to shoot those them for four hours, killing 1,183 of them - 682 with groin shots - before his thumbs cramped up. Your game should not create this kind of bitterness"
