allie: (what the hell!!)
So there's this video game, Just Cause 2, that's pretty much Grand Theft Auto except with 9000x more crazy violence and absurdities (you can use a grapple hook to attach a garbage truck to a helicopter, guys, seriously).

Anyway, my rl friends have been playing this for a while, first to get through the plot, and then to screw around with grappling hooks and parachutes and blowing things up. Yesterday, I call them up and ask what they're doing, and they say they can't come out because they're playing that.

And it hits me. How freaking brilliant of a game title is Just Cause????? While you're following the main plot, where you're trying to overthrow the evil dictator of Generic South American Country, you're playing Just Cause. When you're base jumping from water towers and someone asks you why the hell you're doing whatever you're doing, it's Just Cause.

Holy shit I want to shake someone's hand for coming up with something so simple and so awesome.
