Okay, you guys know the game designer for a day contest telltale is running?
What do you think of the jokes that have won so far? Now I've gathered that the point of this contest is to get people to blog/twitter about Tales of Monkey Island. Which is fine. But it does mean that those who get the most friends to go to the site and vote will win, rather than having the jokes picked on their own merit.
Think I'm wrong? let's look at some of the winners. As a reminder, these are wrongings people will say Guybrush has committed.
I've a very thin friend, and every time that Guybrush meets him he tells "Murray?"
He insulfeated me in a major sword fight by claiming that my fighting skills were equivalent to George Bushes language skills.
Look into me eye. Do ye see me eye? Aye? Do ye? Well, I used to have TWO!
Despite humor being subjective, these range from not funny to both stupid and not funny. I'd be embarrassed to release a game with humor like this. Yes, all the Monkey Island games have had at least a few bad jokes, but I really don't think these particular jokes should be included in Tales.
What's even sadder is that some people made some really clever submissions that didn't win (mine wasn't special though; that's not what I'm getting at).
What do you guys think?
