Mr. Moneybags gets fed up...
But what can I do?????? (In best Homer Simpson voice)
You should have submitted that to snapshots!
this one was actually fun creating....Especially since Hasbro/Parker Brothers was kind enough to provide me with a Mr. Moneybags in the right pose.
Would Mr. Moneybags really be a Tec-9 shooter though? I see him more as a Sig-Sauer man, or maybe even really taking it to the hood with a couple of Mac-10s. Hell, he's got the money, why wouldn't he just go all out with the paired MP-5 solution?
Internet geeks always seem to have an Asian bias.
Monopoly's rating is understandably low, but the problem is as Barnes mentioned, there is no respect for the game whatsoever. Ratings-wise, I've always been more impressed by the poor showing of Chess (196th rank) and the curious Go-centric culture (27th).
I've never played Go, so I don't have an opinion about it one way or another. I like Chess but I haven't played in years.
Back on topic!
Monopoly isn't fun. It's a damn slog. It's very much a product of its time: the Great Depression. Everyone is out of work (lots of free time!) and frigging poor (I wanna be a landlord!). If you have 3.5 hours to kill, Monopoly is the game for you. Plus you'll be humping poor folks, JUST LIKES YOUZ GOT HUMPED!
It reminds me of "desserts" like Indian Pudding--obviously only a culture that has never experienced ice cream could consider a dish like this dessert.
We can "respect" the historical impact of Monopoly without wanting to play it--I thought that was how those ratings got doled out. I could see a lot of folks giving chess a 1 if they never want to play it.
Well, it was in response to that other site and I didn't feel like creating two versions of it. Although, could have doubled the geek gold or something....
You know, that picture would have been 30% funnier if you added "motherfuckers" to the end of it.
Anyways, it was fun creating....
