  • Hyperion||

    These time warps are getting more frequent.

  • SusanM||

    There really needs to be a Reasonoid "Let's Play" video.

  • Hyperion||

    Reason should fund creating their own libertarian action RPG. I will donate. And the commentariat at H&R can write the story line.

  • Scott S.||

    I actually have a whole concept for one in my head, titled "Do You Have a License to Slay that Dragon?"

  • susan221||

    Start working at home with Google! Just work for few hours. I earn up to $500 per week. It's a great work at home opportunity. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Linked here www.Pow6.com

  • Vulgar Madman||

    I can't be the only one that wants to see a storyline written by sugarfree. Or maybe I am?

    Reason should fund creating their own libertarian action RPG.

    You can only play as a dude though, because there are no libertarian women. Also, orphans are currency.

  • Archduke von Pantsfan||

    Salt mines.

  • Sudden||

    Please do not let SugarFree write any of the story.

  • UnCivilServant||

    I second this motion.

  • ||

    I'm disappointed by your bourgeois prudery.

    *Throws draft version of Rapemageddon and the Withered, Papery Genitals of Power in the trash*

    This is why we can't have mind-shatteringly profane nice things.

  • SusanM||

    How about a browser MMO like KOL? "The Quest for the Golden Monocle".

  • Riven||

    Ooooh... Loved KOL back when I used to play.

  • Sean Higgins||

    Can't help but notice that Bioshock was included in the original version of the article "Video Games Every Libertarian MUST Play!" but isn't in the magazine version: http://reason.com/archives/201.....n-should-p

    Any particular reason why?

  • Dr Fallout||

    Finally got DayZ. Took a while to optimize the video settings but am having a good time with it.

    Last night I finally met someone to team up with when seconds later he gets sniped in the head. That'll get your pulse racing.

  • Mongo||

    My extremely conservative Ukrainian coworker - who's appalled at American culture - told me once: "First stage is video game. Next stage is sex change."

  • Vulgar Madman||

    Well, duh!

  • Vulgar Madman||

    Or is that da?

  • Ortzinator||

    White-Ra should have a talk with him.

  • paris1||

    This is precisely why I let my subscription to Reason lapse. An entire edition on video gaming. What a waste of ink!

  • Ortzinator||

    Found the old fart.

  • Eggs Benedict Cumberbund||

    Yea but what I really want to know is how to defeat Hyperius solo with Axton and without a Norfleet?

  • Eggs Benedict Cumberbund||

    Non-gamers have inferior spatial reasoning skills.

  • KalkiDas||

    I don't mean to be daft, but who are they portraying on the front of the magazine? Looks like a young Al Gore. Egads, that can't be Tipper though.

  • Vulgar Madman||

    Video game tipper is a definite improvement.
