I was standing in EB Games just recently, patiently waiting in the enormous holiday line with a crush of other gamers, rabid children, and clueless parents. While waiting, I observed a very hassled mother surrounded by four satellite children (by that I mean her children were constantly in orbit around her) waving games at her. As best as I can tell, each child was allowed to claim the title of his/her choice as a Christmas gift. The stack of games the dismal mother eventually found herself holding made me sick--a sorry collection of bad television and movie related "games" (and I use that term loosely here) topped of by something that looked very much to me to be called "Trollz." Yes, with a 'z' at the end. I presume this is some hot new property I am blissfully unaware of. The other four or so games I can't recall, but I do remember that every one of them was for the Gamecube, and every one of them was a bad movie tie-in. I wanted so badly to slap the pile right out of her hands like some gradeschool bully and then replace them with a copy of Skies of Arcadia. But I digress.
