Helloooooo Log Ladies*! You know that show that you all love so much, Twin Peaks? I think it’s about a ghost detective? He solves crimes and there are a number of colorful characters he runs into, and there are a LOT of Log Ladies? You know what I’m talking about. Well, Twin Pfreaks, why not put some of your MTV’s FANatic stifled energy into this downloadable atari-style Twin Peaks video game? Unfortunately for me, “atari-style Twin Peaks video game” is only a list of words that annoy me, but I am willing to believe that that is just because I am a someone who can’t relax for two seconds and enjoy the world around her because she is too annoyed by it all the time and is worse off for it. Soooo, in the game you play as Special Agent Dale Cooper who is trapped inside of the Black Lodge. “Just like I imagined it.” – You. From your homepage, Welcome To Twin Peaks:

You’ll find quickly that you’re not alone in the Black Lodge, though your friends are few and far between. Not only that, the lodge itself seems to be actively trying to trip you up at all times! You’ll be dodging chairs and crazed Lodge residents all while trying to keep your own insanity. How long can this go on?

HOW LONG CAN IT? Like I said, I will not be playing this game, but I do believe there are a number of TV/movie video games that I WOULD play. I’m not a complete curmudgeon. For instance:

  • Mario Kart style Drive.
  • Grand Theft Auto style Buffalo ’66.
  • Sims style You Can Count On Me.
  • Zelda style Drop Dead Fred.
  • Mario Party style The Young Ones.
  • Mortal Kombat style The Fighter.
  • Goldeneye style Breaking Bad.
  • Or Sonic style Breaking Bad.
  • Rock Band style Spoon.
  • Doom style Gossip Girl.

I unfortunately put A LOT of thought into these particular styles. (Via DangerousMinds.)

*”Log lady” is the only thing I know from Twin Peaks.
