Pixels or Death's Patrick Lindsey plays Super Meat Boy and records some of his thoughts, ranging from the insightful to the inane:
"When you stop and think about it, Super Meat Boy is one of the most emotionally moving videogames in recent memory. Sure, platformer heroes have a tendency to go on “rescue their girlfriend” quests but I just sort of feel it more with Meat Boy. I mean, when was the last time you saw Mario explode in a gelatinous mass of red pixels? There’s something about that sort of explosive mortality that just sort of hints at “vulnerability,” y’know?"
