How does Dan not know PSO?

The holes in his knowledge/experiences are really weird.

Come on, it wasn't that huge.

I only know about it because of this site and I would imagine I'm not alone in that.

Seconded. PSO isn't WoW.

Did you guys just not play video games from 01-05?

Regardless, Dan is supposed to be a knowledgeable videogame journalist. The things he knows nothing about just seem super crazy how it's even possible. I like Dan, but it just strikes me as odd.

Again, PSO was not some fucking cultural phenomenon. Plenty of my friends played videogames their whole lives and I'd wager that I'm the only one who knows what it is just because I've heard Jeff talk about it on Giant Bomb.

Also, I'm pretty sure Dan is way younger than Jeff or Brad. He was probably in highschool or college at the time and it completely passed him. Dan is not weird because he never played PSO. He is weird because he has never eaten sour cream.

Dan just seems like a guy who knows what he does and doesn't like, and sees no point in exploring things he doesn't like. His response to Divinity was essentially, "I don't understand this game, as I don't understand any games like it, and I know I won't ever understand it because I'm not going to play it." He has never eaten sour cream and has no intention of changing that. He's been fortunate enough in his career to not be asked to cover a game that breaks from these tastes, apparently. He's just that kind of guy.

That seems like a really useless personality to have on the site.

And as far as PSO goes, age is irrelevant as I'm younger than Dan by a few years. Anecdotes don't mean shit but for as many friends as you had that didn't play PSO, all of mine did. Did you just not have a Dreamcast? Or the internet?
