Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...

Subject: Sega and PSX2
Hey...I am responding all of these brainless idiots in
last weeks mailbag making fun of Sega for their Seganet deal.
First of all, it's a great deal, you get $200 (or a Dreamcast)
and an ISP (You already have one, and most likely pay more for
it). I see it as a great opportunity to get a good ISP and some
cash. And another thing, $164 a year for an ISP is cheaper than
Aol, which is probably what you losers use. It may be a last
ditch attempt, but i don't care. The Sega Dreamcast is an awesome
system, and PSX2 isn't even out. If you people cared about playing
games and not if it's made by Sony, or Sega, or Nintendo, or even
those hellions over in Microsoft... Anyway, you guys need to start
using your head, not what Sony or anyone else
says about their own damn system.
Do you think they'd tell you if it sucked?
Anyway, give Sega a chance...
We think it's a swell deal,
too. But remember that Sega has made some pretty big promises in the
past that have fallen through, so it's no surprise that many gamers
don't trust 'em.
What promises, you ask? Well,
back in the day they promised to have widespread support for the Netlink
for the Sega Saturn. This, of course, did not happen. Then they
promised to have the Sega network fully functional by January 2000,
with several playable games. Yeah, right.
Then they promised to take
me out for a nice, romantic dinner. Excuse me, but Taco Bell doesn't
cut it. And what about the promises not to stay out past 2 a.m. without
calling first? What am I, Sega - chopped liver? You promised to take
me to Hawaii, but apparently it just "cost too much." I'm
not worth it, is that it?
You never loved me, dammit.
You're a liar. A liar! How could you betray our love?! I hate you! I
wish I never met you! Get out! OUT! OUT OF THIS HOUSE! BAAASSTTAAARDDD!

Subject: RESIDENT EVIL IS A HORRIBLE SERIES!!!!!!!!!
OH MY GOD!!!!!!! How can the public like such a horiibly
made series. I push forward and I GO BACKWARD!!!!!!!
WHO IN THE HECK GOT A STICK SHOVED UP THERE HOLE AND
THOUGHT OF SUCH A MANUVERING SYSTEM. YOU SHOULD BE ALL
SHOT. THE GAME IS NOT FUN. THE GAME IS A WASTE OF CAPCOM'S
MONEY. I HATE YOU ALL. MICROSOFT IS OUR LEADER NOW.
EXCEPT THAT NO GOOD GAMES ARE GOING TO BE RELEASED ON
THE X-BOX EVEN THOUGH IT IS A SUPERIOR SYSTEM BECAUSE
SQUARESOFT IS THE ONLY SOFTWARE DEVELOPER THAT HAVE
TALENTED ENGINEERS. TOMB RAIDER SUX, METAL GEAR SOLID
SUX, SYPHONFILTER SUX, IF IT'S NOT SQUARESOFT IT
Attention kids: Crack
is a dangerous and highly addictive substance. We at GR do not condone
the use of such a vile drug. Crack = bad. Resident Evil = good.
