    An open letter to gaming journalists

    Hi. I'm some dude who buys your products. I like games, and after reading this thread I thought I'd write an open letter to you gaming journalists. I'd like to know which games are worth playing and which ones are not. Please base your coverage on this notion instead of whether you perceive a game company to be professional. I value professionalism in other services - healthcare, finances, legal representation. But games? Professionalism is arbitrary here. When it comes to games, I am not going to base my purchasing decision on whether the company's executives feature snazzy suits, articulate diction. I base my decision on the quality of the game. So please, write for your target audience. Thanks.

    I want my games made by a team of misanthropic basement dwelling rejects that work round the clock because they have no social lives or concept of personal hygiene and can create really interesting and unique game play scenarios because they live their lives vicariously through their characters.

    If they can do that well i don't care if their hands are coated in a layer of cheezo dust and semen.

    I want my games made by a combination of flamboyantly gay artists, white-supremacist programmers who include thousands of lines of comments in the source code about the eventual rise of the fourth reich, angsty black women doing all the writing, a kind hearted old Russian man with a razor sharp wit as the lead producer, and a young lead designer trying to get the supermodel babe of his dreams.

    Because if I've learned anything from cookie cutter comedy movies, they will forget their differences, band together, and against all odds make the best game ever.
