Like many of you, I fondly recollect playing Nintendo at my grandparent's house and witnessing their charming ignorance of modern video gaming, which at that time consisted of crude sprites hitting each other in the face with fireballs. Not only did they lack a basic understanding of the game systems, but they also failed to comprehend the subtle nuances that made video games so exciting and superior to all other physical and intellectual pursuits. This week we relive some of that wonder with the help of the Something Awful Forum Goons. Sit back, relax, and take a look at video games, old and new, through Grandma's super-thick goggles.

  • Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
