Thanks for letting us know.

Any other thoughts to give on it? Do you think it's the Citizen Kane of gaming? Or is it a flawed masterpiece? No fantastic stories to tell about a great move that you once did? Ever beat it on the hardest difficulty in one sitting? Nothing?

I ate breakfast this morning. Scrambled eggs and hashbrowns with half a tomato and avocado.

I once stayed up all night playing Exile III that was one of the best nights ever. Back then you didnt have In game journals, I had to make a 3 ringed binder and write all the quests, and a map on graph paper. That was awesome.

Doom was a game. I used to shoot demons in it, and sometimes I would go to the C:\Doom directory and type in "doom", which was short for "doom.exe", and it would start. I used a keyboard to play it. It had sound, and I'd hear it.

Edit: With my ears.

This one time I didn't play a game.

I ended up married.

Don't make the same mistakes I have.

This has been a G.I. Joe PSA.

Did it come out on playstation? Huh, that's weird...

Anyway, I'm super jazzed for Enemy Unknown, but I think the first game is kind of hard to get into if you're not into finding and reading the manual.

Did you guys ever play that Flintstones 2D platformer on the SNES? Now that was a game.
