You are Great!

You are Great

You are Great!

by Steve Napierski to Comics

You have to imagine that the next sentence is being read by the late, great Don LaFontaine. In a world where it feels like nothing you can do is right, there came video games!

Video games were definitely a way for me to escape from reality as a kid. Sure I made mistakes in video games, but I learned from my mistakes, I got better, and I was rewarded for them with new experiences and cheesy completion screens. Best of all, I wasn’t criticized for my mistakes as I learned (except for in Duck Hunt). Without video games there’s no telling where I might be right now. Maybe I would have experimented with drugs or even worse reading books. Thanks video games, you’ve always been a true friend.

    Just remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolving
    And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour
    That’s orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it’s reckoned,
    A sun that is the source of all our power

    The sun and you and me, and all the stars that you can see,
    Are moving at a million miles a day
    In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
    Of the galaxy we call the Milky Way

        Monty Python’s “The Galaxy Song”, actually. Alas, Le Roof left out the best part (it’s right at the end)… but you’d probably like to enjoy the song in it’s entirety, right?
