Thanks for the post, Rob! Very much appreciated. :)
that was fucking epic
This was Amazing! It's really good musically as well as being funny! It sounds kinda like Ben Folds... Who actually did the music? I couldn't quite figure it out from the credits.
It's clever too in the way it suggests we play games to escape a life of mediocrity... Or maybe i'm reading too much into it haha
I like to think that the best of games are ones who places us the players as that specific game world's "Divine Spirit": we guide events as it unfolds through the hands of a chosen individual(s), and leave the future to them once they don't need us anymore. And thus we move on to a different world, repeating the cycle.
It's more poignant than the harsh reality of "You just don't have friends", really. XD
Mostly I just like killing things and winning at stuff, but this works too!
This video explains my playstyle of oblivion.Not finishing the game, last main quest was to find jauffre, but sidequests are distracting. XD
Heh, not a bad video.... im pleased with it.
The height of this experience for me was Shadow of the Colossus. When you're hanging on to Avion as he soars and "A Despair-filled Farewell" is playing, it's impossible not to feel like an epic hero on a magical quest for the ultimate goal. Love.
Best. Game. Ever.
Well, I'm not fat and am good at sports, so I avoid sports games, because they're stupid. I play video games just because it's cool to run across the bridge, throw the dragon into the lava, knowing that this time, this time, I will have saved the princess...only to get that damn mushroom again telling me "Thank you, Mario. But our princess is in another castle."
That's good. I think for me it's always the same. You start the game and say, "ah this looks fun." Then I get into the game and I say, "I won't be defeated by this game. I have a (although pitiful) reputation to uphold." Then for the five seconds of false achievement and feeling of advanced skill and intelligence.
The worst part of all is that during the entire video I kept thinking, "hey, what game is he playing?"
Sort of reminds me of the Ballad of Mike Haggar thing run recently, in that it is fucking awesome.
nice about time some one finaly let non gamers know the reason gamers play games. because they want to and enjoy the fantasty of the games. love the video
bam! i just added it to stumble! this is awesome.
What I love about this is that it has the perfect mix of feelings of awesomeness, shame, glee, and disappointment that video game achievements tend to carry with them. I also love how it kind parallels the player and the character as aimless wanderers, as well.
That was great. I was expecting something funny or silly, and it was surprisingly deep and insightful. Well done.
This is something I'd like on my iPod - any ideas/links on how to do that?
That was marvelous.
I do it for the groupies.
I did - super glad you liked it! :) And thanks on the Ben Folds comment, too. That's pretty rad. Here's where I live: https://www.facebook.com/tuane...
And this video IS pretty much the reason i play the games.
Just use a YouTUBE to MP3 converter or if you want the vid an FMV converter.
Cool! Nice one dude! I've liked it via my tattoo studio but i'll like it on my own fb page later!
where does one find that? Free would be good.
Thanks, though I just got it online (iTunes or Amazon) for <$1. Worth supporting!
Support awesome or awesome will cease to be.
Nerd news, humor and self-loathing.
