"Dear Mr. Tristero,

In our frequent conversations about the gaming world, the recent release of HALO 3 came up several times; usually met with enthusiasm by me and mild distaste from you. I can understand that at first glance, the popular first person shooter is not your cup of tea, as many of the multiplayer matches are filled with young pre-teen boys whose vocabulary will make the most hardened sailors cry. I am not sure exactly the reasons for your hesitation of joining the hype, but I am sure they are well founded.

However, as one gamer to another, I can tell you that you are missing out on a great experience. You would probably not pick up a copy on your own, so to encourage your exploration of the gaming culture I have included the disc we have been discussing for your pleasure. Now there is very little excuse to leave such a great title ignored, and you can give it an honest try. If you could handle GEARS OF WAR, I am sure you can handle this. Please let me know at your soonest when you receive this package, so we may create a party online and have a jolly time. Enjoy!"

Wow. I really do have the coolest brother. A surprise package just arrived in the mail for me from Washington, D.C. and it included the above letter from my brother as well as a brand new copy of Halo 3. For FREE!

In the face of such generosity, how can I stick to my curmudgeon retro gaming obstinance? Your gesture of kindness has twisted my arm. I will try it with the full knowledge that I have a great sibling. Now go on and get out of here, before I get too sentimental and pull an "Angelina Jolie at the Oscars" and make out with my own brother. Who wants to give me my first teabagging?
