The vast majority of games that employ pixel art do so because they want to have an art budget of $1.50. While some games really wouldn't be the same without it (like Retro City Rampage), I'm pretty sick of seeing every lazy asshole indie dev using pixel art and slapping the word "retro" on their terrible game. It's gotten to the point that pixel art is a good way to weed out games I don't want to play. Turns out you can absolutely judge a book by its cover.

With a mother as stupid as this, no wonder he's behaving like an asshole.

Remember kids: not having tattoos renders you incapable of committing a crime. Tattoos are satan's personal transport to your butthole, or however we're saying crime happens nowadays. What a retarded way to defend someone's character.
