Why I Hated Resident Evil 4

Ever wonder how seemingly sane people can hate popular games? It can happen!

 

My Music

Do you like electronic music? Do you like free stuff? Are you okay with amateur music from someone who's learning? Yes? Because that's what this is.

 

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round

I'm not surprised a fighting game has an absurd story. I just can't figure out why they bothered with the story at all.

What was the problem with the Playstation 3 hardware and why did Sony build it that way?
