You're not being nearly pessimistic enough. Not only will this bad game cause all future games to also be bad, but this bad game will make everything in life everywhere henceforth ruined. Life is not worth living now.

I'd recommend you just commit suicide then, elenchos, but since this is just a simulation we're in, it wouldn't do any good, you'd just wake up in that car again and have to start all over from scratch.

I haven't watched the show since mid-third season, but did they ever get around to explaining how Locke became paralyzed?

They should have had the smarts to send the game contract to me and my cronies. We created two of the top 10 online games of all time...I'm just sayin'...with no shade of humility. We know our stuff. We're all considered top writers.

Oh, what we could have done with LOST...

@3 - His Dad threw him out an 8th-story window. Nice! This reminds me that I never did get around to playing the X-Files game. Anyone? Anyone?

keshmeshi @ 3, yup, they covered Locke's paralysis in season 3, probably after you stopped watching. I forget which episode, but check the recaps at

@5 and 6,


It figures that his daddy issues would get the better of him.

Most games based on a movie or TV show are crap. They know that they can slap a well known name on it and it'll sell no matter how bad it is.

I fell asleep after a paragraph of this post....

FYI, this game is 100% not canon.
