An open letter to Sega:

Dear Sega.

Do you remember the good old days of video games? Do you remember when arcade games were fun? Well, when you look back at the great arcade games of our history what do you see? Ms. Pac-Man? Smash TV? Street Fighter II? Alright, how about Track and Field? No?

That's right, you DON'T think of Track and Field, because that game does not stand the test of time. Even though the game features simple control, a game like Track and Field requires just a little too much rapid finger movement.

If the Power Pad for the Nintendo Entertainment System taught us anything it's that people DO NOT like to actually "work" for their prize ... especially if the prize is meaningless. Men do not court women for long intelligent conversations, if that were the goal of dating men would never court!

But I digress. A game like Track and Field really does not need to be brought back. So that's why I plead that you not release any more games like Virtua Athlete 2k. Not only is it beyond pointless, the game remains dull and unexciting EVERY single time you play it.

Too many of the events, which by the way are too few, simply require fast button mashing. And worse yet, the other events are simply won by luck. There is more skill involved in sleeping than a game like this.

And even though it's four players, I can't seem to round up three more fools to play it with. Perhaps that's for the best, though, as I don't want to taint my opinion of the VIRTUA series.

So, I beg of you, do not release any more Virtua Athlete games. That comes from the entire Defunct Games staff. DO NOT continue on this path.

Please note that I included the list of who is responsible for this catastrophe (located to your right).
