What is the Week of Hate 2009?

We love videogames.

That said, there will be no further mention of why gaming doesn't suck this week. Instead of our usual chipper attitudes, we'll be updating this page daily with a focused look at the shallow, lazy and dull parts of gaming we can't stand, like these videos from last year's Week of Hate. Or these videos from this year:

100 Reasons fanboys hate shooters
Our searing video will jellify your eyeballs!



100 Reasons fanboys hate RPGs
We draw our +6 Vorpal Blade of Indignation



100 Reasons fanboys hate casual games
Our bilious video bashes the most despicable of all genres


Along with our vids, we'll be singling out and defiling the games you love, the games you love to hate and the games your girlfriend hates. We will shamelessly slander topics as broad and unassailable as "shooters" and "casual games." And we will shoot ourselves in the foot with issues like the most hated PR bullshit and habits of the non-gaming media. So welcome to the Week of Hate. We never really liked you anyway.

Top 7… hated habits of the non-gaming media 
See how videogames turn respectable journalists into raving lunatics
