I'm digging a deep grave for shallow games.

Modern games are absolutely awesome; awesome physics, awesome graphics, awesome sound, awesome voice acting, awesome motion capture, awesome effects, awesome scenes, awesome budgets and awesome marketing. Lame plots, lame action, lame chases, lame weapons, lame levels, lame bosses and lame characters. Modern games are like franchise steaks, copious amounts of barbecue sauce with a cheap cut of meat. Modern games are a single level that you play over and over again. One path to follow, a path where winning is the only option. I'm sure you can remember the last time you died in a game, but can you remember the last time death mattered?

I'm bringing hope to a ravaged generation, a generation of men raised by women. I'm building a better, more masculine tomorrow. I'm digging a deep grave for shallow games. I refuse to play the movie, and so should you.
