Geek Discussion: What The Hell Is Wrong With Our Video Game Text Sizes?
  |  @   |  

This is a topic that has been itching at me for a decent amount of time now, but I’ve tried to store it away and forget about it. This, as we all know, is not very healthy. So with that, it’s time to vent off about this progressively glaring situation and allow all of you a place to sound off.
