God damn it video game developers, stop making game demos that are multiplayer only.
Let me preface the following rant by saying that I have nothing against games which are multi-player only, games which are multiplayer-centric or even games that just tack on a weak single player mode so they can say they had one. What I hate are video game DEMOS for games that have a multiplayer mode only, without so much as a tutorial before you're dropped in the action.
Do video game movies objectively suck? Certainly I can cough up a half dozen examples for you, but I prefer a little objectivity. Video games, after all, are just another form of adaptation. We've been adapting books into movies for about a hundred years now. We've been making movies out of comic books since the 40's and based on TV shows since the 60's and video games only since the 90's.
I love me some zombie games. Ironically I'm not actually that huge into zombie-based horror movies, though. It's not like I don't like them, I just don't actively seek them out. I like the same zombie movies that everyone likes: Army of Darkness, 28 Days Later, Dead Alive, etc... But in a video game, a shotgun and some zombies sounds like a pretty damn good time to me.
It must have something to do with my predilection towards interactive entertainment.
Hi, I'm Matt. Yeah, another Matt. I'm not sure who keeps hiring all these guys named Matt, but I promise I'll have a chat with Management about that. In the meantime let me distract you from awkward introductions with this:
To begin, I would like to thank the guys and lady at the Dirty Sprocket for letting me take part in this. I have enjoyed the work that they produce and envy them the time they spend doing it. I would also like to apologize to Mr. Olson for being, probably, the most annoying FAN-BOY out there. Hopefully, someone enjoys this as much as I enjoyed writing it.
