Can you blame them? When you see morons like Ashlee Simpson and Tara Reid on the big screen? After all, video games these days have better storylines.

Have you ever played the Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, or Tenchu series? Final Fantasy is creative and isn't bound by rules of reality (or bad acting for that matter). Often the 100+ playing hours go into epic storytelling, with multiple characters and vast landscapes.

Metal Gear Solid may not have the most original protagonist: Solid Snake is just a rehashing of Snake Pliskin/Clint Eastwood/John Wayne. But the story is always interesting. The cutscenes rival anything on the big screen today (meeting the members of Dead Cell Fortune and Vamp come to mind) if not surpassing it. Sorry I just had to defend video games. If only the good ones.

This man speaks the truth, specially his first sentence.

In response to Michael above (referring to us as "f**king idiots"):You may be interested to know that our 2005 Nominating Ballot went in the mail December 29, and KONG is not listed anywhere on it. In future, please read ALL posts before going ballistic -- on December 21, I posted the following:
