I am David Smith, and I am here to ask you a question: is a man not entitled to an investment worthy of his tastes, enjoyment, and currency?

"No," says the man at EA, "that would require intelligent focus groups, time, and effort!"
"No," says the man at Capcom, "you'll receive your full investment and allotted enjoyment once you've purchased all of the downloadable content!"
"No," says the man at IGN, "these games are fine. Ten out of ten, in fact! You're simply asking too much!"

I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose to do research and not be another target for sensationalism.
A lifestyle choice where the connoisseur would not fear the disingenuous ramblings of "video game journalism".
Where those who dislike the FPS genre would not be bound by the petty, knuckle-dragging, Mountain Dew chugging majority.
Where the ground breaking would not be constrained by the generic.
With only the ability to think before you purchase, this can become your lifestyle, as well.
