This comic is so true. My brother bought a Nintendo DS and Nintendogs to go with it, I helped him move some stuff Saturday and saw him play it for bit.
Seeing a grown man hunched over his gameboy and yelling his electronic puppy's name to get it's attention is, well, disconcerting. Have you ever watched a tape of people dancing, but with the sound turned off? They just seem to be flailing about for no reason. Yeah it is that kind of awkward. Maybe I would consider the game if it didn't involve making an ass out of myself, but as it is I think I'll wait and buy the meatspace version.
