A Time to Destroy: Self-Esteem


Not as easy at it looks most of the time

How about a game that doesn't require that much manual dexterity, but will still frustrate you to the point of depression? Well, a good recent example is the Ninja Gaiden games. While not requiring as much memorization as the originals, the Ninja Gaiden games came with the difficulty of knowing when and how to attack, knowing when and how to defend, and knowing that yes, you are going to get your ass kicked sooner or later. It doesn't matter how good you think you are, how good you actually are, or any combination of the two, you will get your ass handed to you sometime in a Ninja Gaiden game. The difference being that some people can handle it, and some will put the game down never to pick it back up again. Speaking of which, I haven't played NG2 since it red-ringed my last 360. That's right, NG2 is so hard it will red-ring your xbox. Well, maybe not.

There's many and more games that have frustrated me to no end. Some I finish, some I don't. I keep them around though, so when the moment's right I can pick them back up and attempt to convince myself I'm better than I used to be. Which most often ends up being the case. But there are those games out there that make me feel so demeaned and used and broken that everytime I play them, I die a little inside. And for every new Prince of Persia, or Bioshock, that won't let you die, there's still an Ikaruga and TMNT(NES) out there that helps you remember that maybe you aren't as good as you think you are.

For Wiisucks:
Hi! My name is Jack Klassen.! I'm a completely ordinary teenage boy from San Diego, California. My interests include soccer, surfing, writing poetry, and luge. I am homeschooled by my father who fought in the Korean War and was exposed to nerve gas. He is kind of crazy but I still love him. We got the Internet two years ago and I started making new friends on Yahoo! messenger. Surprisingly, most of these new friends were older men who wanted to have illegal, underage sex with me. Needless to say, I got a boner like a rocketship and cybersex quickly became my favorite thing in the entire world. Wait, did I say boner like a rocketship? I meant my vagina got as wet as Lake Titicaca. I started saving all of the hot chat sessions I was having with the Pakistanis, lesbians, child molesters and other monsters who were instant messaging me all day and all night, and I decided to put them up here on this website so you can see exactly how disgusting the entire human race is. Since then, I have been in a waterskiing accident that mangled my genitals beyond repair, been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, brain cancer, and Crohn's disease, learned to speak Urdu and French, covered my naked body in superglue, went to French lesbian camp, made a Hindu eat a roast beef sandwich out of my vagina, and ruined perfectly good cybersex for at least one hundred people.
