You have to wonder if random-spam like that actually ever works. I suppose it must, otherwise we wouldn't still be seeing it.

It doesn't work on a site like HonestGamers and actually takes more effort than normal, since the forums are proprietary. But whoever decides to do that can't know that... so we'll keep seeing it as our audience continues to grow.

I dug into my old collection and have posted my review. I did M, so I choose "Metal Gear Solid: VR Training." Maybe not the most interesting title, as there really isn't that much meat for a reviewer to chew on, but I was surprised no one had reviewed it yet.

And the real point of the contest is to fill HG with good reviews, so I felt it was all very much in the correct spirit.

M is a surprisingly tricky letter to do. There's tons of options, but most of them have been done ten times over. Metroid, Mario, Morrowind... some good cult classics, too. Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion, Masochistic Young School Girls... lots of good stuff.

I really wanted to do Morrowind, cause I've got a lot to bitch about with that game, but like I said... it's been done.

Anyways, I may STILL do a Morrowind review in the future.

Hey... that was ALMOST a rant, wasn't it?

Morrowind's techinically under E for Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, anyway.

I love Morrowind. I want to write a review of my own some day, and have consistently been beaten to it. By the time I get around to it, it'll truly be over-reviewed.

Morrowind for me is a wonderful failure of a game.

I found Morrowind to be utterly spellbinding despite it's flaws. By comparison, Oblivion felt polished yet bland.

That's a good assesment. I played Morrowind for months, but I only played Oblivion for about an hour.

Both games lacked focus, though. There were too many random little quests without meaning that bogged me down.

To be fair, the first hour of Oblivion is god awful.

I liked the first hour of Oblivion. Certainly, it didn't lack focus. It's the rest of the game after you get out of the tunnels that leaves a person wondering "What now?"

It's the "What now?" feeling that makes the game! The claustrophobic and confined start of the sewers are universally hated!

I spent far too much time with Oblivion. It's just now hit home just how many words I ploughed into that review. Yikes!

When playing Oblivion for the first time, experiencing the opening sewer segment was kind of enthralling. But experiencing similar segments, be they in sewers, catacombs, or caves, got kind of tiresome because the majority of quests required you to delve into banal underground areas. Traversing the outside world, though, that never got old for me.

The expansion packs didn't help to break up the monotony of endless dungeon diving, although I must give Shivering Isles credit for trying to be really weird. (It's mostly irritating thanks to the Prince)

Good point. The underground areas could never be as interesting as the outside.

But then, I really didn't like any of the Elder Scrolls games.

I'm writing for this and making an appearance writing for a game with an asterisk in it, such as Q*bert.

Haha. Go for it. I reviewed Q*bert once.

And I have become the third person to finish his/her tourney review.

Hope it's good.

I'm plodding along with an odd Half-Life 2 piece that isn't quite working yet. Might as well be a little ambitious with my writing for a competition's sake.

It might have been obvious, but I want to say I think this is a great idea for a contest. Great way to get a bunch of writers together, great way to produce more material for the site, great way to compare your work with that of others... excellent.

Is there a place where the submissions can be listed, so that we know what's been written already, by whom, and where we can read it?

Here's a review I just wrote. I might turn in something better before the deadline, but there's a better chance that I won't, so here's the link:

The Sims 2: Apartment Life

Enjoy... and pick me the winner!

I missed the sign-ups, but I posted a B review in case Suskie doesn't show. Actually, I just posted a B review for the hell of it, and then happened to notice that was Suskie's letter. But still, you know what I mean. Yeah.
