I thought Foamy had ranted out this topic already. Anyway, a lot of great points in this, it's like a tutorial for how to chose the right games. :P Keep up the great work!

It's great to hear more Libertarian-leaning common sense from that squirrel.

As some one who has playing video games since the late '80s, I can see your point. However, this rant comes off as a missed opportunity considering the subject. While there are truly artistic games out there such as Out of This World, Terranigma, Star Ocean (Super NES), Tales of Phantasia (Also Super NES), Ico, anything by Love-de-Lic/Skip, and Baroque (PS2/Wii); there are those that come off as pretentious, badly directed, and have shit storylines. (Final Fantasy 7 and Radiant Silvergun come to mind.) However, considering that you already made this a while ago, I'll let it slide.

Graphics: It's the same as what you've been synonymous with, but cleaned up a bit. I understand that you did want to fuck with the look too much, but it can be summed up as a new paint job. Then again, the visuals take a backseat to the content.
Audio: The voicework is still good as always, but due to the pitch-shifting it would be hell to lip sync all that.
Content: You did a good job at presenting your arguments, but there's plenty of material in the game world that has yet to be commented on. However, that would be way too much for something this short to cover. Then again, I got a couple of laughs out of this, which is nice.

The Good:
-Somewhat funny
-Good voice acting
-A valid, well-written argument

The Bad:
-Same as the other rants
-The new look isn't very impressive

Overall: Here's a seven for something that has its merits. (3.5/5)
