Comment: Why ask why? (Score 1) 277 277

I'm personally curious about why they started with such a short list of inductees. I strongly support WoW's inclusion, but it does seem weird to include in the first six versus the history of gaming itself. Angry Birds being on the list of finalists angries up my blood. Why Doom instead of Wolfenstein?

I'm not asking for a full autopsy report, but I'm tired of "famous person dies from undisclosed cause." Was it natural causes or something else? I know this may not be the case here, but I hate when people celebrate a person who dies in a less than noble manner (example: celebrity role model dieing from drug overdose)

When someone says "I want a programming language in which I need only say what I wish done," give him a lollipop.
