This is part of a series in which I try to write a post every day on silly video game topics. For the list of topics, click here.
I don’t think I have a single answer here. There are some TERRIBLE games out there, and games that I thought might have looked good, but sucked, but I keep going back to a genre on this one. That’s right you little mouth-breathing, moms basement living, anti-social morons, I hate multi-player shooters.
Doom, Halo, Unreal, Gears of War, first-person, third-person, in the immortal words of Chris Tucker, I don’t give a fuck. They all fucking suck.

Spend any time on your X-Box one of these games and you’ll get a sample platter of the ‘best’ humanity has to offer. “LOL u gt pwnd fggt! Hhaha ur ghey!!1” Maybe even uttered aloud over a built-in chat/VoIP system, too. And there’s no point to these games, really. Just an endless slog doing the same thing over and over and over, killing the same enemies just so you can have some shiny achievement or points or new look or something. Fucking pathetic. Just another example of the deacy of our society and people’s sick urges to live out their fanta…
