In every action film there is a slightly bookish computer whiz back in a dimly lit van controlling all the action while the secret agent on the ground gets all the credit. And martinis. While we’ve played the tough guy hundreds of times, we have yet to play an accurate “nerd in the van” simulator… until now.
I’m sad to admit that my Playstation 3 collects a lot of dust. Sure, I’ve played my fair share of Uncharted, Infamous, and Metal Gear Solid 4, but I have happen to have more friends on X-Box Live, so that’s where I typically do my gaming. I’ve been hearing about Sony’s “Michael” trailer for a few days now and felt incredibly compelled to share it with you all. While I don’t want to spoil any of the “magic” of the commercial, I have to say that the brief 2:12 commercial elicited more emotion out of me than any feature film I’ve seen this year. Does this mean I’m a nerd, hell yes, but there is something about “Michael” that perfectly captures why I’ll be playing games until the day I die. Enjoy….
