Writer's Block: Work & Self-Worth

Does your current occupation affect your self-worth?


Nope. Because I don't have a current occupation so my self-worth would have a hard time being affected by it. So seeing as that question is about as relevant to me as the stars in the sky are to one of those fish that has a light attached to them and lives right at the bottom of the ocean, I'm going to talk about something else now. Okay so last week I was playing the Lost game. It was dreadful but there is a chance that they could have done a good game with Lost. It could have been about exploring the island and all that kind of thing; rather than being about nothing, which the game inevitably was.
Now I've talked about games that really shouldn't exist before like the Desperate Housewives game, the Little Britain game, the Reservoir Dogs game and so on. But now you can chalk up two more to that list. Two of the most ridiculous concepts in gaming history. Firstly Dexter: The Game. As in the TV show. No! Bad developers! And secondly if that wasn't a ridiculous enough concept for you then strap yourself in for this one. This really is about as ridiculous as it gets. Saw: The Game. Yeah really. Those films where people are kidnapped and placed into traps from which they must save themselves and all under the pretext of making them appreciate life. There's nothing there that can translate into a game. Not a single thing. Sometimes you have to wonder if game producers are made from solidified stupidity.

i'm currently pondering over the necessity of having a "lost" game.

it's the same as all these comic books being made into films - people can't be bothered to come up with original ideas anymore, they'd rather use something else and still get the big fat paycheck.
