How dare you challenge my biases, prejudices, and decades-old opinions! Seriously, though, I always thought the story was dumb, and I was already a grown man headed toward my 30s — I felt like I needed something not-dumb to justify spending time playing a video game. Hand-in-hand with that was a dislike of the aesthetics, and that sentiment has continued to this day. It took me a while to try Gears of War because of what I perceived as similarities to Doom.

Of course on top of all that you can drop a huge dollop of Mac snobbery.
