I’ll be honest here, I don’t like Angry Birds.
It isn’t so much that I have something against the game itself or casual gaming for that matter, it’s the fact that, for some reason, society has deemed Angry Birds, as mediocre as it is, to be the greatest video game pop culture icon of the last couple years. As someone that has played a lot of fantastic video games that don’t get the attention they deserve, it’s disheartening.
Needless to say, I got no small enjoyment out of doing this. I still left some birds alive for the sake of fairness though. And the picture has the exact same aspect ratio as an iPhone screen because hey, it made sense to me.
I need to get back to work on some commissions now so Mario vs. Master Chief will have to wait for a bit.
