It used to be that video games were mind-numbingly simplistic, consisting solely of crude blocks moving around the screen.

Now it's not just "move the crude block," it's "move the crude block that killed his wife and is haunted by a demon of his own guilt." This week the Something Awful Forum Goons celebrate the introduction of pretentiousness into video games by making them even more self-absorbed and needlessly intellectual. Grab your thinking cap and enjoy, bucko!

    A real friend doesn't move until the middle of August, ensuring temperatures in the 90s and a humidity that turns boxers into moist balls of ruined cotton.
