An aging hand at all of this, from the Golden Age of the 2600 to the networked crap of today. Been there, done that, wants more.



Inane Facts:

* Once had aspirations of becoming an Apple // software pirate (What? Like you were never 14...).

* Has attended at least two conventions a year since 1995.

Was it just pure morbid curiosity? Was it the long wait? Was it the fact that it was now under $10?

Everything said about this game... it's all true. The lacking gameplay, the reliance on checkpoint saves, the dodgy engine, the awful jokes, the lack of innovation... everything.

Ever single NPC I come across fills me with disgust. I really wish I could punch or shoot each and every one of them. I mean, once I got to the infamous hive level, I couldn't be offended since my apathy overpowered any other emotion I could feel at that point.

I once read that bad comedy is effectively anti-entertainment. That holds so true here. Playing this game is like walking through one of those awful parody movies that the film industry keeps excreting year after year.

But in the end, I only have myself to blame. What's worse, there's an overwhelming feeling that if I don't finish it then I'm only somehow cheating myself and the 14 year wait.

Don't be like me. Even if they start giving it away for free.

In the end I'm not going to call it the worst game of all time, or even for just this year. But I will hold it up as an example of how a game shouldn't be.
