Hold up. Apply the same thought exercise to video games as opposed to music.

Certainly you shouldn't care about what other people think about your tastes, but there is something to be said for being a well informed consumer.

If this post was prefaced "I like first person shooters, but really critically panned ones/mainstream (ie Homefront). Should I search out a better quality product, or just leave it in and play it because I enjoy my time spent with it?" You all would jump on the recommendation train and tell him to go play BF3 or TF2, or some Call of Duty variant.

Sometimes it is just knowing where to start with something when you are venturing out of your comfort zone. If you like Pop music there are loads of options - Kpop, Jpop, Scandinavian, BritPop, all sorts.

There is nothing wrong with blasting some Ke$ha every once in a while, but with listening to new music being such a low risk prospect (a couple minutes vs hours for a game), there is no reason to step out of your comfort zone.

You could start at worse places then Katy B, or in a more club sound - Icona Pop

Isn't Clickbait making a top ten list and then spreading each number across a separate page ala a site like Cracked?

I really dig Patrick's Worth Reading articles. Sure it is an aggregation like Kotaku, but it is a curated list making it far better then having to look at Kotaku every couple hours for fear of missing something cool/interesting/

Also see Jeff's article on Windows 8/BlazBlue on the Beta Site.

Here's what I remember about my time with Lunar.

There's a lady in the moon. She gets naked and walks around. There's a blizzard. It's a snow moon I guess. Then you're this dude named Hiro GET IT and he has a pink dragon that is really more of a pink cat. The pink cat also talks and shits fire or something. Okay, so then you wander in a temple because it's a video game and the naked girl shows up and you get your first anime boners of your life. Then you try to save the girl from the evil empire that's trying to kill her, but she's like ridiculous powerful but she's also amnesiac and also not in your control. And then you wander around and you meet some guy who hangs out with you, and then a green haired girl who is like a ninja dancer type. And then you go to hot springs in which the naked girl walks at you and you get the second anime boners of your life. After that it all gets difficult to remember. I think you go to a forest.

Greatest game summation ever. Should be on the official box art.

Compared to even the broken mess that Dead Island was, this looks real bad.

No, they are dumb for not buying online or through some other means.

Organic Chemistry takes some know how to get through. If you can't use amazon to look up a book, you deserve to get hustled.

People pay for convenience. You were convenient - They didn't want to think about it, and in the process you profited. It is the same way that the actual University bookstores work.
