This guy seems to be spazzing out about nothing. It's a magazine for old people, name 1 person under 20 with a time subscription... I dare you. Miscategorizing and placing games based on sales numbers and trace information is how old people journalism works. Sad but true.

Are a joke. All they do is reprint other people's stories and then take the credit. Bottom of the barrel filth... alongside pay for reveiws places like GameSpot and I'll change my review if it annoys someone important IGN.

Anyone how is this relevant. Time Magazine did what they did - it is not up for debate whether they did it or not.

I ask that because there is no person I know OVER the age of 18 that displays your high level of extreme fanboyism. You bring it to every thread you go to. Pathetic would be an understatement. Can't you be a pal and go back to the open zone. It was made for YOUR kind.

sonyfanboy websites are going crazy they trying their best to spin spin watch an article about ms is doomed in 09 or sony won 08.
