There are many characteristics I share with Gregory House MD – I am played by an Englishman, and my final seasons are rather poorly directed – but chief among these likenesses is my unexpected appreciation of Monster Trucks. And not just the howling monstrosities of arena snows, no, but the games of the same. Monster Truck Madness on the Playstation has provided me with important fuel for my critical appreciation of games generally, and I regard it as a formative experience. But that’s for another time. The point of this post, if there is one, resides in the appearance of Monster Truck Destruction on Greenlight. How can we not vote for a game in which you drive a luridly-painted giant truck with the physics of child’s toy through a caravan while listening to heavy metal? These are the things which make us human.
Inexplicably, I found that House gif after I started writing this story about a game on Greenlight. Spooks.
