In Gex, you play a wisecracking '90s mascot ... which meant every moment of it was exhausting. And if you scaled every beanstalk and collected every TV remote from every nonsensical location, you received the ultimate reward: The credits rolled, but instead of listing the developer's names, the text praised your abilities. This went on and on until it became clear it was sarcasm. Then it went on and on long after the joke had been kicked to death. Then it started openly mocking you for doing the exact thing you bought the game to do. You were insulted for exploring the worlds painstakingly built by dozens of artists and programmers for no other purpose than to be explored by you. This d******d game said these exact words to you, on the extremely off chance that you loved it enough to 100-percent it:
So, you're pretty good at this stuff? Do you have a life? Or do you play games all day? ... Just think what you could have done today instead ... You could have found a cure for cancer ... You could have invented a fuel source that didn't need dead dinosaurs ... You could have cut a hit Grunge album ... You could have seen the sun for once! You know ... That bright orange ball that seems to hang around the sky during the day. So, what are you waiting for ... Go have a life ... Get out of those superhero pajamas and do something!
