Election Day and DOOM 3

I turned off DOOM 3 long enough to go vote. Wendy and I went at 8:00 this morning and the line was pretty long. This was the first time I’d ever had to actually stand in line to vote for president. In the last two I was in and out in two minutes. Not this time, though. I feel confident that Bush has Virginia locked up, and I still predict and hope for a Bush win by a narrow margin. I may be eating crow tomorrow, but I hope not.

And, yes, I must admit that I’m addicted to DOOM 3. Let me say, for the record, that NO I don’t think kids should be allowed to play M rated video games… but I have to admit to being a fan of the first-person-shooter genre, and ever since I bought DOOM 3 a few days ago, I can’t get enough of it. It’s like an interactive horror movie. The premise is that you’re on Mars, doing battle with the minions of hell. OK, not a brilliant premise, but it’s fun nonetheless.

I do have to say, though, that this time the video game programmers may have gone too far. Some of the monsters that come after you in this game are too hideous for words, as in the clickable image below:

So, no, don’t let kids play DOOM 3. But it’s fun for adults. I like to pretend that the zombies I’m battling are liberals. They’re slow, they’re stupid, they all look and dress the same, and they don’t appear to bathe… so it’s not much of a stretch.

you sir are a bloodthirsty imperialist zionist capitalist pig, as clearly indicated by your revelry in the likes of anti-aliased demon-shooting.

...way to make me proud of being an american...
