First of all ladies it’s NOT just another video game. This is Madden. This is where us men can actually live out the unfulfilled fantasies of our teen-age years. Today Madden 2012 is released. For many of us this day should be declared a legal holiday.
Don’t tell me I’m NOT on the team. I can create a player with my face and name, give him unbelievable abilities, and become the MVP of the NFL. If you are lucky I will grant you an interview in the kitchen after I empty the dishwasher.
Don’t tell me it’s not any different from Tetris or Mrs. Pacman. I will single-handedly take the Cleveland Browns to another Super Bowl victory this year. If the outcome is in doubt I will do what I always do….hit “reset” and start all over until I win.
Don’t tell me I look ridiculous with my headset on talking trash to a bunch of twelve-year olds in Harrisburg I’m playing on-line. They are calling me out and I will rub their pre-pubescent faces into the Madden turf before their mother yells at them to “come upstairs and go to bed.”
This is NOT your ordinary video game. This is REAL. I really am a grown man. Really…..seriously….well at least I think I am. 🙂
