Ryan Reynolds says games are a waste of time

For anyone who saw the summer movie debacle that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I can guarantee that the only silver lining in that stinky little cloud was Ryan Reynold's performance as Deadpool. Until, you know, they effed it up at the end. But at least for those five minutes, we got a character who wouldn't shut the hell up and who cut bullets with swords. It was fun!

I've heard all sorts of rumors about how Reynolds is a pretty big comic book fan, about how he really wanted the Deadpool role, and how he has all sorts of clauses in his contract for the character to stay true to the Deadpool persona. All of these claims are largely unsubstantiated internet rumors, but it just goes to show that the nerd portion of the internet really likes the guy. I mean, I'd drink a beer with him.

However, I wouldn't mention my favorite nerd hobby around him--videogames. In an interview leaked by, ugh, Perez Hilton in the latest Entertainment Weekly, (note the Summer Must List Double Issue!) Reynolds is asked about such illuminations as Jon and Kate Plus 8, being a sex symbol, and videogames, among other things. His comment:

I don’t really play video games. Is there a way to waste more f—ing time? The Internet’s enough. The last videogame I played was Ms. Pacman[sic].

Ouch. I'm trying my best to channel my inner Jim Sterling, but all I can come up with is the feeling of mild disillusionment. Oh, and the irritation that just because you get to act as the most interesting comic book character to come out in twenty years and sleep with Scarlett Johansson, you can still be a condescending douchebag whose original claim to fame is a film where dog semen on pastries is somehow funny. Oh, and the last game he played is a boring piece of crap.

I said it. Ms. Pac-Man sucks.

Grand Theft Auto V is finally out, and pretty much everyone has gotten their hands on it, including Conan O'Brien.
