Heh I had an easier time reading this than I did his Megaman article. I enjoyed it a lot.

Great work Syd.

Yet another reason we're overdue for another video game crash.

Many of the same arguments can be made for Tetris. It's about destruction of the establishment, which is most efficiently done with penises.

The "I know what you're thinking" bit at the beginning of your last point was a nice touch.

Syd is dead-on on the sex analysis of Pong, that of a male-dominated society simulation program.

Some Pong player left his machine running for 10 years to see what progression men and women would make in the future. This simulation of patriarchy produced this video:

Finally got around to reading this. That's some flawless logic, right there!

The hell are you talking about? That video wasn't a 10 year pong game, and google brings up nothing on that.

That's misleading, though. He didn't even make it to the year 4000. I'm guessing you could've played his game in a few months. I'm also guessing he was terrible and a better player would've been able to win much sooner.

Well, he was in free play mode. The game had already ended. So he had already won by virtue of still being alive at the end of regular play.

If there's more than one country left in the world or your country hasn't left to colonize another planet then you didn't win.

You mentioned me and an electronic signal was sent through Indra's Net. I received that signal and here I am replying to you.
