I never grew up playing video games; my parents were fine with us playing at arcades or at friends’ houses, but we were absolutely not allowed to own a Nintendo or Sega at home.

In fact, everything about this great new entry was awesome … but since then I have realized what it meant to the REST of the Expanded Universe: death.
