Thought Elder Scrolls fans in particular might find this amusing:

Damn that's pretty funny lol. I smirked and chuckled a few times anyway. And a lot of the things on that list are very true, very similar to the plot of the Lord of the Rings lol.

I had a difficult time stifling my laughter. The ever so subtle sarcasm really hit a nerve... :lol:

Hehe the rampant gigantism made me chuckle. Good list and if you're really cynical you could brake any game down like that.

This one is my favorite:

When I inevitably find myself poisoned by giant spiders, I can remedy that by eating a piece of nasty cheese found in the sewer.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates some of that stuff. I mean seriously, in some games rats can actually pose a challenge -- what kind of hero in a suit of armour with an array of weapons at his/her disposal could possibly be threatened by a rat?! RPGs have some of the dumbest things in them of any game genre, and for some reason they get away with it all the time...

And why is all the wildlife hostile anyway? You don't just walk near a rat and suddenly it tries to kill you!
