Hyperbolic PUNCH!

I recently updated my About page to something with a little more meat. The updated text is so hyperbolic it equates the death of the arcade in the West with the T.S. Elliot’s The Hollow Men.

Yes, it’s that amazing and jam-packing with hyperbole. I’m sure this would make my high school English teacher very proud.

It also references pinball and tabletop gaming in the local community clubs in the 80s, complete with reference to my Dad’s Boony mo he sported in that decade.

I’ve actually been toying with the idea of doing some historical runs over my gaming past for a while now, and I’ll hopefully be able to get started in a couple of months.

In the meantime, read the updated text. It’s golden.

    I think you got just the exact right amount of hyperbole in there. It can be a delicate balancing act with hyperbole in an “about” section, but you did it well.

    And capping it all off with that fantastic reference to Joe Esposito’s masterpiece from the Karate Kid fight montage? Well done!

  • Brilliant, I hoped someone was going to notice that tip of the hat at the end of my rambling 🙂
