Now, Cracked.com isn’t known for its journalistic integrity, but when you’re going to make a list, submit it to Digg, and then sit back and smugly admire your wares, you should at least make an attempt to be accurate. Cracked posted their list of “The 6 Most Retarded Gaming Consoles Ever Released”, and it included such undeserving nominees as the Fairchild, the Vectrex, the Odyssey, and the TG-16. I might agree with the inclusion of the Nomad and the Epoch, but they’re still a push to get in there.
Now sure, this is probably just an article that’s 50% traffic bait, so they have to be a little controversial, but how do such stinkers like the CD-i, 3DO, 32X, or the Pippin manage to keep themselves off the list? It’s downright shameful of them to put out some of the consoles they did on that list.
Hey Cracked, go back to making fun of Hollywood. You’re just a poor man’s Mad Magazine anyway.
