There is a clear temptation when you begin playing The Sims to simply make yourself and recreate the world around you. After all, you know yourself, but wouldn't it be great to see how a virtual version of you would react to a world where you're your own god? You can make yourself, your one bedroom apartment, and see how Virtual You compares to Real You. Can Virtual You get a job in politics by babbling in front of a mirror and telling gibberish jokes to random passers-by? Because that didn't work out so well for Real You.
In a recent poll on Consumerist.com, it was decided that Electronic Arts was the worst company in America. This is the second year in a row that EA has taken the top prize. In response, EA's COO Peter Moore has released the following statement:
After nearly 200,000 votes (and lots and lots of comments about Dokapon Kingdom, which we owe an honorary shout-out to), you've decided the top 10 games that tore apart friendships like tissue paper. While some games incredibly did not make the cut, there's no denying that the games that did make it were built to test the limits of good sportsmanship and test relationships in ways that would make Erik Lehnsherr and Charles Xavier piss their pants. Somehow I think those two would have split apart a lot sooner if they had to play Portal 2's co-op mode together.
Well, it makes sense that if the worlds of Marvel and Capcom can't get along, why should you and your friends be able to? While the series pits the two universes against each other, they usually come together in the end to defeat some big bad (and totally cheap) mega-villain. Too bad the same couldn't be said for the friendships that were torn asunder by this game, such as when Darren was button-mashing and picking Cable LIKE A COWARD.
