Do video games think I am stupid?

Bitmob Community Writer Jackson W. Ryan: The controller has evolved considerably since the humble NES back in the 80's. To account for this, many new games feature lengthy tutorials, guides, and how-tos to provide the player with the smoothest gaming experience. Yet, I feel like these make me feel stupid, and they take away from a grander sense of discovery. (Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Culture, PS3, Shadow of the Colossus, Xbox 360)

Yes, yes they do.

And if there's anything my time at N4G has taught me, it's that you are stupid. Very, very stupid.

So very stupid that I'm going to sit here and point out that the "you" in the previous statement was plural, not singular, and people will STILL read it the same way.

Games don't make somebody stupid. Either you are or your not :P

Console developers think you are brain dead.
