A rant about how video games can be considered an artform and the people who just don't get it.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

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)

Not the best Foamy has ever done; normally the rants are a bit more spot on.

Ok, I love video games. I will always be playing them. And they can be true art. But that was a lot of whining about video games and how a lot of people say they're a waste of time.
Well, here's the kicker: they are. I've wasted and will continue to waste a number of hours playing them. They're fun.
And honestly, I've seen plenty of careless parents just let their seven-year-old plat GTA games and shit; while other stay strict with their kids.
Now, I was thinking 3 or 4 stars... until the "Bible" part. I'm a Christian, go fucking figure. Yeah, well it's always good and original to take shots at religion (namely Christianity) in this day and age. It's not like this mockery gets shoved down my stupid Christian throat every fucking day. I love when people at school would keep talking about how stupid religion is, while just had to sit and listen. I understand that there are probably a number fanatics out there, but seriously.
Interesting how you didn't mention the Muslims or something. Too touchy of a subject? Is that an unpopular thing to say? Yeah, safer to go after the Christians.
Whatever, you're not part of any kind of solution, just the bigger part of the problem.
I don't know why I just typed all that, considering that very few will try to understand, oh well, I doubt this will stay here long anyway (this rating and comment, I mean).
