I Like Taking It Off, Sticking It In. (NSFW)

by RenegadePanda   //   1:08 PM on 06.27.2013

I'm not afraid to say it.  I like taking it off, and sticking it in.  I've been doing it for years, and I'll openly admit that it gives me pleasure in doing so.  Some may consider it inappropriate or old fashioned, but I've always enjoyed it, be it in private or around friends, or sometimes even in public.  Others even call it dirty, dangerous, and say it puts me at risk for accidents, that I'm living on the edge.

When I tell people, they often seem offended, and yet I don't know why.  People have been doing this forever, why is it suddenly becoming unpopular?  Chances are you used to feel the same way I do now, chances are you've done it at least once in the last few years.



You've bought a brand new game, ripped off the plastic, and stuck it into your console of choice.

For me, that's part of the experience.  It's part of what makes gaming special.  Even though I'm 25, I still get a twinge of Christmas morning when I open a new game.  I still feel a crushing disappointment when a game does not include a manual.  I look at every single insert inside the box before I even play the game.  It all brings me back to my childhood, ripping open Nintendo 64 games and violently thrusting them into my system.

Think back to your own.  Did you have that same feeling of euphoria when shoving a virgin cartridge into a gaming deck?  Did you look at the box, the manuals, the posters?  For me, one of the best memories is that of Mario 64, something I'll likely never forget.  Not just the game, but opening it, looking at the manual, and booting it up for the first time and climbing those trees like a boss.



By this point you've probably realized this is another one of those 'Renegade Hates Digital Games lulz' blogs, as well as an excuse to type a series of vaguely sexual puns for no clear reason.  I tricked you into reading it, didn't I?  It's exactly like Metal Gear Solid 2.

A lot of people have called me old fashioned for preferring, or flat out requiring physical media in order to buy a game.  They say it's the future, that the convenience is amazing, the prices are cheaper, yet none of that rings true to me at all.  I'm more than willing to pay more to get physical, because any other way lacks the passion for me.  Sure, I could get my pleasure quicker and cheaper, but where's the love I felt that Christmas morning?

Yes, I just indirectly compared gaming to prostitution.

Think about it, you wouldn't sacrifice passion in your relationship just to have sex all the time woul...okay, no, that's a bad example.

You wouldn't sacrifice quality to get your food quicker and cheaper...fuck, okay, not that one either.

So maybe I don't have a suitable analogy, but that word does have anal in it, which is funny.  It's what you'd expect the study of anuses to be called, right?  Granted if someone was willing to devote their entire life to the study of anuses, you wouldn't want to hang out with them.  Because they'd be a shitty friend. 



Oh, right, the blog...

When it comes right down to it, I guess I just prefer the physical nature of buying a game.  I like unwrapping it.  I like looking at it.  I even like physically putting the cartridge or disc into the machine.  There's just a feeling there that I can't get digitally.  In fact one of my favorite parts about Taiko No Tatsujin Wii is the fact that every single game in the series has a 20+ page, full color manual, inserts; and right down to the disc art, it's all sickeningly adorable.

I guess that's worth as much to me as the game itself.  It's just like a hooker, or something, you pay for the sex, but you want something nice to look at too.  You want the satisfaction of knowing that you didn't just get a game, but all the things that go with the game.

All I know is that if sticking it in is wrong, I don't want to be right.Photo Photo Photo view gallery
