    WTF. I hated Braid but even I can see that it’s clearly the better game.

    I’m surprised, as I thought Braid would win. Does that make me less than a person? :(

    Braid is amazing. I’ve never been so emotionally involved in a game before.

    Most people who call it pretentious couldn’t actually work out what it was about, felt intimidated and thus blamed the game for their own inadequacies. :)

    Must buy Braid.

    Having said that, I had a lot of fun with the Castle Crashers demo too.

    No doubt Braid didn’t win because it doesn’t encourage people to buy Gold Live accounts. OH THE CYNICISM! :-D

    You’re not a real man until you’ve got ALL the animal orbs.

    I’m about three short. I can feel my penis engorging more and more as I edge closer to the glorious dream.
