MAKING PEOPLE LAUGH IS THE LOWEST FORM OF COMEDY
That's a quote from Michael O'Donoghue, but all of a sudden it seems to apply quite well to Cracked.com, a frequently brilliant web version of an old, substandard MAD ripoff. They run lots of listicles, some of which are quite funny. But a while back, they ran What Is The Monkeysphere?, one of the most mind-wrenchingly awesome satires of human existence ever published online. Now the same writer, David Wong, has headed back into essay-land again, with a look at The Next 25 Years Of Video Games. This guy's some kind of genius, and frankly, he scares me a little.
