Super Meant Boy

Posted by Zombieheadbutt (255 posts) -

Why does playing Super Meat Boy for XBLA feel like the "Five Stages of Dying"?  First, there is denial: "I hit the jump button!  Jump!!".  Then there is anger: "This game is fucking stupid and I wish it would die in a fire!!!".  Of course then comes bargaining: "God!!  Please!  If you just let me get through this one stage I'll never kick a kitten again!".  Then ultimately there is depression: "Have I always sucked this much at video games?  My life is a lie." And last but not least we have acceptance: You delete SMB from your drive and turn off your 360.
