Like any good ‘lamer, I troll this here series of tubes with an eagle eye on gaming news and other related goodies. Whilst doing so last week I was besieged by persistent incestuous linking and goings on about the above video. I watched the video. When it was over I watched it again to make sure I hadn’t missed some hidden genius or arcane humor delivery initiative I had not had the mettle to have noticed on the first go-round
The whole week this went on. My RSS reader was brimming with links to this video and almost all of the comments seemed to be near sickeningly positive. A writer for a popular gaming editorial website, I was faced with a challenge:
Do I hold my tongue and starve this beast the select few who might come to it by my mention of it, having somehow missed the near ridiculous barrage of geek-love it has received in the last seven days?
Do I compose this post, which will undoubtedly drive traffic to the piece, with the intent of pre-soiling the viewers’ opinion of it with a volley of grammatic artillery and hope for the best?
After hours of consideration I have come to this: I will just point to it, say I think it is crap and ask what you think.
So — what do you think?
