Ode to Super Meat Boy

Posted by suprspecialawsm (65 posts) -

Super Meat Boy is a mean game. And I mean mean. Yet there's something about it, and I know I'm not the only one, that keeps drawing me back in. Its brutal difficulty and steep learning curve are tempered by its speed and the oddly enjoyable and amusing death animations and cutscenes. The lightning-fast gameplay is addicting and, even if after fifteen minutes you're ready to throw your mouse or gamepad out the window, in an hour you're back for more. So, like an abused spouse I'll keep coming back to Super Meat Boy, longing for its love and approval until I finally make it through. In the face of so much defeat, I can only imagine how sweet that victory will be.
