You may have heard the story recently of a cool gamer dad who modified Donkey Kong so it would have a female protagonist his daughter could relate to – the only reason I didn’t run with it here is that every mainstream outlet got to it so quickly it would have felt redundant.
It was a sweet human-interest story, so naturally obnoxious idiots came out of the woodwork to flame the YouTube video featuring the modded game. Feelings may or may not have been hurt, but at least one gut was busted in my household when these dramatic readings of said comments surfaced. If you liked the classy readings of terrible fan fiction, I think you’ll get a kick out of this…
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
