Is now the time for me to mention that Lemon pronounced Ljubljana wrong?

To be honest I figured it was wrong but I don't actually know what the right pronunciation even is to begin.

Well, sure, if you believe Wikipedia's left-leaning lies. Conservapedia should have it with the correct pronunciation of "uhl-djooble-djanna".

I can't tell which I love better: the fact that the one guy wrote out the most generic "artsy" video game but was too lazy to actually make it, or the fact that he has a nostalgia hard-on for the Game Gear.

Number of clips mentioned in this doc: 37
Number of clips mentioned in this doc that mention pay rates for contributing authors: 10

73% of these people are dead from exposure, but to be fair, that was far less than I was expecting when I decided that this post was a good idea.

I decided to be generous and count clips that mentioned contest prizes (but not those that mentioned "sometimes, but not always" honorariums (yes, really.)) I also noticed that very few submission pages discussed which type of rights the clip was buying, or even desired submission formats (this info is kinda important!)

Two clips also take photograph submissions, in jpeg or gif.

Dreginald simply has to be seen to be believed.

I would create a doc on all of the "publications" mentioned in this episode, but I'm not sure anyone handle that level of pain.

This is a site one of you guys made right? Please tell me it's not legit. My brain can't handle that this isn't a joke website.

A part of me is tempted to mass submit a bunch of randomly generated text under various pseudonyms with false bios and publications, and see how much actually makes it onto the site.

Was the Harvest Moon knock-off supposed to be a creepypasta?

You know, sometimes I think people are too hard on those trying to raise the status of video games as art, but then I'm painfully reminded of shit like this.

Nah, if it were creepypasta, the screen would ooze blood or something, and the player would have some sort of nightmare sequence.  This was more the "what if escapist fiction... were actually really depressing?! Whoa..." genre of bad writing.

ETA: Also I feel like the presence of examples of terrible work in a medium shouldn't lead to someone writing the entire medium off; the entire collection of MST3K movies don't disqualify film, after all.  Let us all simply celebrate the existence of ridiculous things that we can laugh at in addition to the well-made things that inspire our higher passions!

Oh, I agree. It's just I often run across people who feel very strongly about video games one way or another, and as I consider arguing with people who vehemently oppose the idea of video games as art, I remember THESE sorts of things. (Also I'm being mildly hyperbolic.)
