Fatal, possibly the worst RPG ever made (as famously reviewed here has not improved one iota, despite claims to the contrary from the fanboys - its still a horribly mysogynistic piece of crap but now has the benefit of horribly mysogynistic artwork too.
So I wonder if, in the style of the Pete Doherty hoax hoax what would happen if someone were to set out to write something even worse. I'd be curious about it as an experiment but only if there were some way to, a year or so down the line once it gained noteriety, harshly punish every jackass who praised it.

That review is frigging hilarious. Thank you for the best laugh of the week.

(Though the very fact that the game exists is disturbing)

The rebuttal ( wiki.rpg.net/index.php/FATALReviewRebuttal ) is pretty good too. And by "Good" I mean "Like a train wreck". And also by good I mean "very very long". I particularly liked the reasoning behind why the insanely racist armour was not in fact racist at all and why he isn't a juvenile twat.

Sweet zombie Jesus, it IS like a train wreck. I figured I'd stop reading after the first couple of paragraphs when it became obvious that the rebuttal was going to amount to first-year-Brickie I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I, but I couldn't... look... away. And it just kept going... and going... and going.

Based on the review I figured the guy must just be moderately messed-up and angry. He himself convinced me that he's actually mildly retarded.

It does sort of make you wonder - I mean the guy was in his mid 20s or later when he did that rebuttal and supposedly an intelligent bloke (self proclaimed mind) and he's making comments like

Original review: Fatal is the date rape RPG
Him: Again, another mistake, where is dating mentioned in the book?

The laughable bit is that the fans/social deviants/apologists claim the book has gotten better yet the starting age for humans is still something like 8D10,000/81,818, vagnial/anal circumference is still a generatable stat and the urination skill is still there and pretty much EVERYTHING revolves around sex.
