Does (Top Promoter) subliminal (Top Promoter) advertising (Top Promoter) really (Top Promoter) work?

...because I've never gone to my game room, opened the box and found a fucking note that says "Device 0 Not Present".

...because I've never had to hit F2 to enter a BIOS setup to manually restore defaults that are supposed to be set.

...because the only way a component goes bad is if I'm careless. And even then most games aren't that fucking expensive to replace.

...because I've never turned on the light in my game room and seen a fucking BSOD.

...because I'll never have to reinstall every fucking piece of software in my game collection.

No drivers required.

No viruses (usually).

Unless you are playing something like Magic: The Gathering or D&D

Also, when I'm sitting down at my board games, I don't spend so much time thinking about my computer that I start trying to use my board games to talk about how cool my computer is.

...because boardgames (at least in my experience) never have tweens and early teens who have nothing to do but become uber leet at some game and then have discovered the use of profanity makes them 'cool'. So boardgames dont go something like this:

"OMG I FUCKING PWNED YOU DUMBASS NOOB!"
*Sigh*
*Actually get to kill them*
"STFU YOU CHEATING HAXOR!"


*Rinse repeat*

This is the reason I hate Halo...the single player was meh at best, the multiplayer is a joke, nothing but grab dual wields and run at someone till they drop...then get lambasted by some 12 year old about how you suck, your mom sucks, etc...

I know I suck, I play for fun...I dont need to be reminded of it every time I die...

My games from the 70s aren't hopelessly outdated.

Unless you count Luftwaffe...

Anyway, can't say the same thing for computers from that era.

Because I've never been caught sitting in front of my board game at work with my pants around my ankles and a belt around my neck?

True, but there are some games you need to upgrade your table to fit everything
