The Sims Im obsessed with simulation. From crappy Flash games to $60 Wii titles, Ill play all of them with a goofy smile on my face. I know that almost every video game itself is a type of simulation, like shooters or some RPGs, but Im talking about games devoted to simulating one task. They usually lack characters and plot since theyre so concentrated on the role they seek to emulate. Sometimes I ask myself, Why do you enjoy subjecting yourself to such a chore of a game? And then I answer myself, Good question. I dont really know. Youre a fucking moron. Play something real.

Saints Row was good - or, at least, I liked it! I bought Saints Row and I found it to be as entertaining as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas or Vice City. I also have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of Sega Superstars Tennis. Taking along Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team on predictably long and boring outings has proved to be quite fulfilling.

Contrary to popular belief, games that do not receive amazing (or even mediocre) reviews can be enjoyable and fun. True, buying them is not going to push developers to strive for greatness, but playing them does not make one less of a gamer.

lawlsuckit Shit-slinging is a pretty big and entertaining part of gaming culture, particularly where games played over the Internet are concerned. Competition combined with the relative anonymity of sitting behind the computer or television screen, rather than face to face with the person you’re insulting, can breed within even the nicest of people a sense of uncontrollable nerdrage.

Personally, I like it.
