On August 19, composer and sound designer Marc Straight introduced his dad to the world of modern gaming.

Though his dad was a fan of video games during the "SEGA CD period" of the early 1990s, his no nonsense descriptions of modern staples quickly gained the admiration and amusement of the gaming community.


Straight took to his Twitter account to share his father's insights like this one about the "action-adventure survival game" No Man's Sky.

His father had a unique way of putting things into perspective, like his take on God of War.

Marc's dad calls it like it is. He found Overcooked overrated.

Sometimes, his descriptions were so true they were painful, like his take on Dark Souls 3.

But his father also got to know a little bit (too much) about his son through the process...

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
