Introducing Brotastic Week

We give a lot of love to niche games at GamesRadar. We write long, wordy love letters to Okami and cover indie darlings like Fez and Braid. This week, however, we want to celebrate the other side of games.

The side of fist-bumps and high-fives. The side some of us deplore and others of us adore. The side that lets you have conversations with that one cousin you  hate at family get-togethers. The side some say is responsible for gaming's huge successes, and the side that others say is the decline of the industry. The side... for bros.

This week at GamesRadar it's "Brotastic Week," an entire week celebrating bros. You can expect to see features about literal siblings (for the technical meaning of "bros"), as well as articles talking about the more ambiguous idea of bros. You know, the guys who drink Mountain Dew while playing Halo and Madden and stuff.

We'll still be writing about other parts of gaming, but at least once or twice today we're going to talking about bros, because bros need love too, you guys. Bros need love too.

    Being a loner wolf, i don't see much about this week appealing to me. Except the articles about literal bros and stuff, those could be fun.

    Didn't you get enough hate from people in the Weeks of Love and Hate? Can I just get a few in before you start then? "Call of Duty sucks" "Battlefield sucks" "Halo deserves more than an 8" "Comment about another generic FPS" "Multiplayer is for idiots and isn't needed" "Mulitplayer is for 1337 and you suck if you disagree" "Ugh, Gears of War is for losers." "YEAH! GEARS OF WAR! GET SOME!" "Semper fi, bitches." "*sigh* why do people STILL buy yearly sports games updates?" And of course, the fallback for those without wit: "[insert game name] is just [insert previous title] x.5" Did I miss any?

    I can't believe I forgot the most "Bro" of ALL the comments: "FIRST!"
