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: Great Site!
I would like to thank you for providing all of this
information on games. I found the reviews to be
informative and entertaining(I especially liked
Duke's thoughts on Lara Croft). This is also one
of the most well-designed sites I've seen.
Your grade A+
Thanks again, and keep up the good work.
Thanks so much, but we need
to clarify something. Duke hasn't thought about Lara Croft in years.
It's too painful. She stole his heart, that she-devil, only to squash
it underneath her hiking boots.
But have hope - the restraining
order is up in a few months. He'll win her back....oh yes, he will.

Dear GR Staff,
I would just like to thank you once again for your help. Your reply
is honestly one of the nicest and most considerate responses I have
ever received from anyone. After reading your reply, I realized that
your staff truly took the time to address my concerns and did not
simply reply by saying "go check out our review on our web-page".
Thank you again for the suggestions. I'll keep them in mind. Keep up
the good work.
Dear web friend,
Thank you for writing. We
appreciate your interest in Game Revolution. Please go check out our
reviews on our web-page.

Subject: What a site
Gentlemen, I've been a fan of this site for
over two years, and it just kicks ass. I
understand that you can't get the reviews up
for console as quick as you'd like, but the
excellence in writing once they are reviewed
makes up for that. Sometimes you're just
inspired to praise something that you love, and
that's why I'm writing this letter (I'm also
measurably drunk.) Keep it up, and dammit, get
more hits than videogames.com one month. It
would make my day. Better content - better
site. Damn the skeptics!!!
I love you, man. You're the
bestest. You're cooler than Elvis. We gotta hang, dude! We gotta just
go hang, y'know? That would be rad, hangin' and stuf.
(we're also measurably drunk)
P.S. Actually, we get WAY
more traffic than videogames.com. So for God's sake, keep drinking!
I Love You
