I came for the historical implications of reading a review of the first game in a series that's still as popular 13 years later. I stayed, however, for the quality writing:
In case you haven't noticed it, there's a little craze going on in the world with these guys known as Pokémon. It doesn't matter if you love 'em, hate 'em, or drop-kick 'em, you've at least heard of them ...
"drop-kick 'em"? What am i reading again?
- 151 Creatures to Capture
- Link cable support for two players
- For Game Boy and Game Boy Color
Yes, this is part of the review text. A bullet point list of the game's features. You know, written by the publisher, like on the back of the box?
... the big wigs at Nintendo decided to bring these little guys to the US. And guess what? It caught on like a cold. And chances are, you've caught it as well.
Also, the word "literally" is used in 3 of the 7 total paragraphs. That's literally 42,9 percent of paragraphs!
(I really shouldn't post this. I'm a terrible writer myself.)
