GTA IV: "OMG THE WRITING"
So I'm very excited to start playing GTA IV but every review I've read so far marks the writing as incredible. Which is great, let games grow-up. But what's really pissing me off is that everyone is treating GTA IV as the first game to have good writing.
I've been trying to shove Grim Fandango at people all week because of that. It's just pissing me off. I'm like, "What have I been playing all term?"
"Sam and Max."
"Because it's good."
I honestly feel like punching them because I've been talking about the writing all year, and here I am being subjected to "Hey Kroms, if you really want to become a good game designer you should play this. The writing is amazing."
I think I'm going include a desire, in my will, that everyone in the world plays some Telltale and then shoot myself. Then people will take pity and make it law.
