    My confession is that when going to the movie theaters on the night of the Scott Pilgrim release you may also remember that the first Expendables came out against it. Well I'm ashamed to say that I paid money to sit through that, fell asleep for the last twenty minutes then hopped over to the Scott Pilgrim screening. Needless to say I loved Vs. The World and can barely remember anything form that other movie - whatever it was called. But I won't forget what a bad decision I made with my money that night and haven't theater hopped since.

    Mine would have to be that I actually enjoy playing games that are inferior to other games, glitchy and unplayable or games that have high learning curves, because I am in reality a bit of sadomasochist (no really >__>) and enjoy being angry and upset at games either through shitty game design or punishing game mechanics. I love Demon's/Dark Souls for the latter reason, but I also enjoyed and own Alpha Protocol, Duke Nukem Forever, Deadly Premonition and ZombiU (which I would argue are both great games that had too low of a budget), Clive Barker's Jericho, John Romero's Daikatana, Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Alone in the Dark: Inferno, Postal 2, Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness... the list goes on and on! Needless to say, I have a high bad video game pain tolerance but as the late great Mikel Reparaz, Brett Elston and Chris Antista would say, you need to play 3's and 4's to know what is good and what isn't or to at least know why a game is great in comparison.

    When I was young and impulsive (a.k.a. last year), after a particularly heated argument with my brother, I decided I needed to get some serious payback. I strolled over to his laptop, opened steam, deleted all the games (about 50) and replaced them with a never-ending loop of, what else, the Trololo song. Using some trickery, I made it appear as if the games were still there, but it would just be the song every single time. Boy, was he pissed... and I felt proud.

    A few Christmases ago i was in line at a local wal-mart when i saw a game placed to the side as if someone decided against buying it and was too lazy to go put it back. Me being the giant douche i am picked up the game, turned to my friend and then ranted to him how shitty the game was and if i had received this piece of shit on Christmas morning as a kid i would run away because obviously my parents didn't love me. That is when the cashier pulled the game out of my hand because it was not a discarded present as i had assumed, but a game that the old lady in front of me was about to purchase. She was so angry she almost hit me with her purse... In my defense the game really did suck...

    I have never completed a single Sonic the Hedgehog game and have only beat a few Super Mario games.

    I erased my brothers pokemon emerald with all his level 80's and up just so i can play, and the day after he asked me what game am i playing and told him advance wars. He bought it and never found out until diamond came out and he wanted to transfer his pokemon, but what he found was my level 30ish pokemon that havent even beat the elite four.

    I frequently skip out on some really good games because I invest so much time in MMOs like Planetside 2 or WoW against Sleeping Dogs, Saints Row 3 and recently The Walking Dead.

    When I was young, I couldn't beat the Elite Four in Pokemon Blue. I was too lazy to train. So instead, I stole six level 75 pokemon from my brother. But I still sucked and couldn't beat it. So I went into my room and cried. My brother then found out and beat me up, and I cried some more. It was a couple years until I defeated them on my own.

    When I was 10, one of my classmates (not even a close friend, just someone who happened to be in the same class as me) had this cool game on his parents computer. I have forgotten all about what the game was called, but it you played a these cool, little sprites, going though a city, beating up tougher looking sprites. One afternoon after school, we were home alone at his house playing, when he said that he had to go to badminton practice. Instead of going home I just sat there and continued playing, completely alone, in somebody else's house. At one time his older brother came home looked confused at me, but I just kept playing. When my classmate came home with his mom she walked up to me and said that my classmate wanted me to go home. As I went to get my coat on I saw him looking sad, even sniffing a little. To this day that memory still haunts me, the thought of making him realise that I only wanted to be with him in order to play on his computer. I was years before we spoke to each other again.
