What is Flawed Gaming?
Have you ever rage quit? You know, you were playing a video game and it frustrated you so much that you threw the controller at the screen and stormed out with a black cloud fixed ominously over your head? Trust me, we’ve all been there. Think about this site as the guy who overhears you ranting about that game and decides to take you and many other fellow rage quitters to form a mob with pitch forks and torches, and leads you on a dark mission to drag every sh#%@y game you’ve ever bought out into the woods and set them on fire.
Simply put, Flawed Gaming is a site that is dedicated to rage quitters — past, present and future — who want a heads up on everything they need to know about those kind of games. Does the game have glitches? Does it cost too much? Is the hype surrounded it been blown out of proportion? Or What if its really good but it can’t make it to shelves because its been delayed or worse; cancelled. It doesn’t stop there though.
Besides video games, Flawed Gaming can also show you what’s wrong with the people behind the games. You know the industry. Is your favorite gaming company experiencing layoffs or takeovers? Has a famous dev passed on so he/she can make games for God? Yes, this site will even go there.
So whether you lost your save file to corruption, or your country just won’t let you buy a game because it depicts zombie babies getting their diapers blown out their mouths from a double barrel shotgun, or you just simply took an arrow in the knee, Flawed Games will be there to cover that mess.
How It All Began
It all started with a goofy idea for a free blog. You have to understand, I was still young back then. I loved video games which is an understatement. I’ve been playing them since I was five. Another thing I love is writing and I love it as much as I loved video games. But I never really thought about bringing both of my passions together until the year 2008 showed up and I was introduced to blogging.
It was pretty easy to figure out what I wanted to blog about. And man did I blog. I had many gaming blogs throughout the years, some have come and gone. They were all of my children. But my favorite thus far was one I named Flawed Games, born in 2010. The idea for that blog was the same as this one. In fact, both sites are one in the same (I redirected my old free hosted blog to this self hosted one). And it was all inspired by a one little bad gaming session I had one day.
Things were going down hill for me that day as I was playing several titles, each frustrating in their own way. After a violent rage quit, I decided to retreat back to my other passion (blogging). While surfing the internet I came across some articles that bashed some of the games and I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be cool to blog about those kind of things. I really don’t have to explains the rest, do I?
