Los Refritos 9
You don't need the lamer bosh of escapist nerd Greg Gilbert. You need the integrity and courage of Clint Eastwood.
Take the money you were going to blow on this book, and go rent some good Dirty Harry films and Clint's 'Man with no Name' westerns.
Of course, if you are unconsciously oppressed and alienated, and looking to become even more lost in your own little cowardly world, Greg 'articial culture' Gilbert is the place to go. But it wont get you anywhere. And it will separate you even further from your own potential, and what it means to be a Real Human Being with Real Courage and Integrity. Unreal 'Sleazy Greg,' ultimately, has none.
Go ahead. Take risks with your sanity and isolatory tendencies. Maybe a cheap therapy operation will take you in. But it will take you years to recover.
Here's one game that hasn't aged well. LR9 is filled with commune-centered jokes that were no doubt hilarious at the time, and features long cutscenes and writing that seems to scream "HEY! I'M WACKY! LAUGH AT ME, FOOL! LOOK! GAY JOKES! STEREOTYPES! FUNNY!"
It's not a bad game - the time and care that went into it are quite clear - but it won't necessarily be all that funny to those who weren't in the community when it was made.
