    Nov 23 2012: Gran Tourismo 2. It was a realistic driving simulator. Then they released 3 and the cars all went 500kmph and were indestructable. That's what happens when you ask 12 year olds to update a game.

          Nov 23 2012: I indulge in the TED game. The object of this game is to raise the awareness of left wing zombies to the point of being aware that they are aware. It is a game that cannot be won which is made abundantly clear on TED

        Nov 26 2012: The mistake they made is a bad business decision because you're only twelve for a year so you buy one game and then move on to something else. The games that maintain wider appeal sell better because you buy the first one when you're twelve and it's still fun when you're sixteen so you buy the next edition etc The vast majority of gamers are adults (chronologically) after all.
