Poetic Insight

Ive been meaning to do this kind of thing for ages but seeing TurboMan's Haiku Review of God of War 3 spurred me to give it a go. I havent done a Haiku and instead just did a more free "poem" as ive been meaning to do for a long while. 


Mass Effect
To be thrust to the stars
only a racist and gun in tow.
The robots disgraced us,
the gunplay followed.
But I felt the drive,
through the depth of universe.
I felt it three times over.


Tekken 6
I have memories of the tag,
of the PS Pad in hand.
Memories of those days muddle,
I wonder what the purpose is.


Assassin's Creed
In ease of traversal,
beginnings of greatness.
In the end it frays,
but I still had hope.

Assassin's Creed 2
In ease of traversal,
beginnings of greatness.
But Ezio has soul,
and this has completion.

Nice. On a slightly related note, I intend to review Dante's Inferno in canto form. That is, when I beat it.

Id love for one of the hallmarks of Giant Bomb to be more poetic reviews of games lol that will show those people who think games promote Violence and Sexism it actually promotes Poetry!

Then again, it probably won't help that I'll be talking about a game that takes a great work of art and debases it to gore and tits. Then again AGAIN, I could just do the other Dante's Inferno.

I doubt that doing the other Dantes inferno, which im just discovering exists, would help much. Although writing any review in a poem would help make society look on gamers better lol not that I care what society thinks.
