Quote of the Day – On Ruining Video Games July 18, 2013Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, Humor, Quote of the Day.
Microsoft backpedaled like an anarchist on a tandem bicycle
Robert Brockway, on Microsoft’s post-E3 change of heart
That quote sort of epitomizes why I go read Cracked.com on a regular basis. It made me laugh.
I am not even sure if it makes sense as a metaphor. I had to Google “anarchist” and “tandem bicycle” to see if there was some obscure reference with which I was unfamiliar. The best I came up with was two French men on a bicycle.
I suppose that is close enough.
But even as I am chuckling at such things, I get the suspicion at times that Cracked is really a cover to discuss serious issues under the cover of humor. The quote above came from the article 4 New Video Game Realities that will Kill the Industry, which actually gets at the heart of a couple of things that bother me.
