Because they can save you from wasting precious moments in your life span.
A while ago, I had taped the 2011 Video Game Awards(VGAs) so that I could watch it later. At some point, I asked my BF if he wanted to watch it with me and he flat out said ‘No.’ with that ‘Don’t you dare ask me that shit again.’ look. I brushed it off and was like ‘It has video games. It can’t be that bad.’
Oh, but it can.
This was one of those times where you thank god for Fast-Forward but curse him for not allowing you to Rewind your life. I only wasted about 10 minutes trying to see if the VGAs were going to get better, but I would like them back. That or something to unsee those 10 minutes. Either one would be swell.
So, what made the VGAs complete and utter hardcore crap?
1. The Host: Didn’t know who he was and don’t care. Full of shit, enough said. Also the name of a Stephenie Meyer book. Coincidence? I think not.
2. The Women: This is one of the times where I don’t feel bad about talking shit about my sex. Take this for example: the big electronics store that they have where I live has a surprising amount of female workers. If I need help, I make a beeline for the nearest male. I don’t care if he looks stoned or is in a coma, I go for the man. Why? Because the women won’t know what the fuck I’m talking about if I ask them something. Seriously, I am not technologically savvy, but goddamn, how hard is it to tell me where you have the Logitech stuff? Same thing goes for video games, whether it be promos or a TV show about video games, if I see a woman doing the hosting or huge amounts of talking, I get the fuck out.
3. Hulk Hogan was in the audience. Do I even need to say anything about this? Hulk Hogan was in the audience. Apparently, he also got up and spoke too, but I can’t confirm that since I was by then already in deep with the fast-forwarding.
And to think, all this could have been avoided if I had just listened to the ‘I wouldn’t be caught dead watching that!’ vibes from my BF. Dammit.
Now, to get that shit out of the way…here are trailers for some games that I want to play. They can’t disappoint me as much as this crap did.
