So I heard Thanksgiving is this week in Americaland. I was going to write a blog about things in games Iím thankful for but then I realised that would be a bad idea because
(a) I really like games and I would go on forever.
(b) Iíve never celebrated Thanksgiving before and donít know what it is (itís about you guys committing genocide or something right?)
(c) Its more fun to be a dick and complain anyway.
So with that in mind I set out to write about things that we shouldnít be thankful for, things that we should in fact hate and get rid of in gaming. And thatís how Hatesgiving was born. A time for us to moan and whinge about all the little things that annoy us, no matter how stupid or immature our reasons are, and without rebuttal or debate. Itís kind of like Rapture, only instead of a city under the sea, itís a holiday I made up. So in the spirit of acting like an ungrateful complainy-pants, let us order take-away, isolate ourselves from our family and grumble about things we donít like.
Unpauseable cut scenes.
Alright, at first this was just one of those little things that bothered me a little bit, but as time goes on the more I see it the more it winds me up. Iím talking of course about floaty sticky back swords. For those of you that donít know floaty sticky back swords are the weapons that magically float or stick to your characters back completely unassisted by any type of sheath or holster. There are theories as to how these weapons stay afloat, such as, the same invisible force that holds Cloud hair in place also holds his sword, Danteís weapons are held on his back by sheer awesomeness, and the ever popular hypothesis of Nathan Drake and his magnetic spine. Yes this is finicky infantile nit-picking but thatís what Hatesgiving is all about
Phew, there we go. Childish self-indulgent rant over. I may not understand Thanksgiving but I still want you guys to have a good time, and if any of the stuff above is your biggest problem, then you really do have a lot to be thankful for. So join in on the Hatesgiving festivities and air your grievances below, donít worry, we wonít judge.
