Before we get to today’s comment diversion, a quick note to congratulate Sean Whaley, who won this year’s NCAA College Basketball bracket. He not only predicted the winner of the tournament, but the entire final four. He pulled off the victory by a mere two points. Among the writers here, The TV Whore managed to pull off third place overall, a mere four points behind Sean. Congratulations, Sean. $50 and a shiny new T-shirt (once the new one is designed) will be on its way to you soon.

In this week’s comment diversion, we’re going to explore a seldom spoken of topic around these parts, though God knows many of you know enough about it. Video games. It’s a free-for-all discussion, but I’ll pose this to get you started: What is your all-time favorite video game?

I have an unfortunate addictive personality, and video-games do a number on me. Once I begin a game, I stop eating, sleeping, and interacting with the real world until I’m finished. That’s why I haven’t played anything besides Madden in about a decade, since Earthworm Jim stole nearly three uninterrupted days of my life. And that’s why I hate video games: I have no ability to prioritize them around my life.
