It Was the Blurst of Times

Game Web site recently posted its worst of the worst awards feature, in which the site celebrates all the bad moments and games people suffered through in 2006.

You can read the whole choking feature if you'd like. But be warned: I'm only calling attention to this as a cautionary tale.

Games Radar is a fine site. But it gleefully falls into the trap of assuming people want to read an excessively long and smarmy article if it's presented satirically. But there's little satire to be had here; the article resorts to foul language instead of thoughtful criticism,  and its writers clearly miss the point by only casually mentioning the worst game of the year.

Boo-urns, Games Radar.

(Although the site did get the worst game of the year right.)
