Game - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

We don’t want to come across as arrogant, but - like most dogs - we are capable of exercising incredible restraint. Our dad is not capable of sitting, and staying, the way we are. That’s why he never gets a biscuit. And mom has never been able to sit on the front yard and point out birds with absolute concentration. That’s why we were so surprised when it took Sammi an entire year to understand that doors are not a snack.

Once Sammi grasped the idea that compulsively biting the door would not free us from the downstairs dungeon, dad upgraded our living space. This has been wonderful (the plaintiffs in Judge Judy are so convincing in hi-def!). The best part, though, has been the addition of Playstation into our typically television rich daily routine. Our drool reflex was triggered when we noticed a Playstation game produced by Naughty Dog. We were hoping for some instruction, but ended up playing Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for three straight days instead.

The gameplay is amazing, and it turns out our paws can manipulate the little joysticks with surprising dexterity. The game’s protagonist, and intrepid treasure hunter, tracks the evil villain through dozens of incredibly detailed levels to snatch the treasure at the last minute. Uncharted 2 is like a James Bond movie mated with a Choose Your Own Adventure book - you control Bond. We love Bond - his mating rituals are similar to those of our species - and the game provides some love interests for the main character. Unfortunately, there is no in game mating. We will never understand the human tendency to banish that activity from public.

This game has it all: the potential for world domination, shooting, puzzle solving, love, and a rich environment. It’s so good we would roll over and submit for it. 8 paws up! Feel free to come over anytime and delve into this game with us, although we may lick the screen when it gets exciting.

I don't play games but I'll read the "bitches" take on anything. Hilarious!

Bitches, be careful with those biscuits. They are the food of oppression.
