To me, this episode is all about embarrassment. Playing certain games can be, apparently, embarrassing. Failing at a game in front of strangers, equally, if not more so. All the man hours that have gone into boob physics? Embarrassing for sure.
I cannot, for the life of me, understand why Chris would be embarrassed to play Call of Duty. Sure, the annual release cycle has caused the franchise to drop the ball here and there (:::cough::: GHOSTS :::cough:::), but the game is popular for a reason: it’s fun! FUN, I SAY!
For my part, I got to fail in front of strangers and feel like an asshole while playing Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. Painful experiences all around this week, but they make for an entertaining episode.
