VGW: Occasionally, a game is released to wide praise, adoration and induction into the canon of game culture. But unfortunately, that game is released at the wrong time for you. You try playing it and for some reason, you’re just not feeling it. So you play something else, and you never quite get back around to playing The Game, and over the years, while everyone else talks about how awesome it is, you have already deposited into the circular file of your brain.
For me, this game was Gears of War 2.
