Dear, beloved Neal 😉
Tears came to my eyes as you expressed what I have never been able to put into words. I too forced myself through that abhorish “show” they called VGAs. Every scene was a catastrophe and another dagger into my soul. Truly, they had never played more than a handful of video games, as well as playing only the ones with the most realistic graphics (I didn’t see any GCN or GBA or PC games, did you?). Why did video gaming ever have to become popular? When something becomes popular, suddenly 90% of the fans are made up of loose, undedicated morons, and that is who the industry focuses on. Thus, mortally wounding such a wonderful thing. On of the very few, rare times that video games were portrayed on the screen, not only was it almost to the point of mentally scarring, but they took the opportunity to fill it with sexy girls and 15-seconds-of-fame-who-gives-a-shit-has-nothing-to-do-with-video-games pop-stars.
That’s already 75% of what’s on TV anyway. Sexy and Music Idols. Couldn’t they have given just those a couple of hours of fame?! There are millions of hardcore gamers out there. Why couldn’t they have picked ONE to run that hell-brought devilry?
Please make more articles such as the above. I love hearing others’ disgust of the weak-idiot portion of gaming society.
Your Game Protector Brother in Arms,
I would suggest that you not even mention GameFAQs ever again, as that is home to one of the worst message boards ever created, and even mentioning them would bring dishonor to your site. BTW, nice site you have there. I’ll certainly be coming back again…
I read a lot of gaming magazines and i have to say, from what I have read so far this seems pretty good. I mean you guys (and girls) seem to have put out quite a bit. So I’m probably going to come back and read some more. Well that’s it, keep doing what you’re doing!
