STFU — Shut The Fuck Up — is a quick rant complaining about gamers who complain.
Yesterday gamers went haywire over the reveal of the new Batman: Arkham City Game of The Year Edition cover. The outcry was the loudest on social news sites — bandits at Reddit went apeshit over the cover art, calling it “Worst. Box art. Ever“. GameTrailers’ Michael McWhertor called the box art a “tragedy“. Apparently, game covers need to like like a Monet these days.
Have we as gamers become so entitled and snobby that a great game like Arkham City is no longer enough, the cover needs to be perfect as well? Let’s show everyone that we’re civilized and belong in the art world by bitching about the cover of a game, not the game itself. That’ll show the film and literary world we mean business.
Just STFU and enjoy the game.
