    “a game that is reflective of my personality, lifestyle and competitive nature”

    Let’s break this down. Mike, your Personality = Boring, your Lifestyle = Boring, ummm Ok I’ll give ya the competitive nature. I guarantee this will be worse than the Beijing Olympics video game but not as good as the Sonic and Mario Olympics Game.
