I might be in the minority here but I've never found the Onion to be funny. Ever.

Me too. Not shooting the messenger, by the way -- I did find the article to be entertaining. On the other hand, so is watching fish in a tank...

The Onion is really hit or miss with me. Some of their stuff is laugh-out-loud funny. Some of it it meh.
This was mildly amusing.

That's pretty much how I felt about it as well. I found it to be somewhat offensive too. I just felt like they were pinging on people who enjoy interactive entertainment like video games. I would love to see them take on the millions of Americans who sit around watching game shows or old sti coms, and not expect to get a big backlash from their fan base.

This really is where generations collide. Or maybe not generations -- maybe just cultures. I don't know. What I do know is that I have difficulty getting my parents to understand my love for video games, when everything else between us is super-cool.

Yeah, I never have either. Their method is too predictable and that kind of humor can only go so far.

Everything can only go so far.

I think it has to do with our information overload culture.

I find my grandparents laughing a lot more easily at stuff than some people my age do, as weird as that sounds. Just my character ragdolling on the ground had my 40-something roommate nearly in tears.

It's because we're so constantly bombarded with parodies and sarcasm and attempts at humor that the "piss-takes" actual start to outnumber the things getting the piss taken out of them. Something like the Onion becomes predictable and unfunny quickly.

Diminishing returns, y'know.

This is true even with GTA V, I have a whole new set of radio stations with new content but the routine of making fun of crazy DJs/politics/the media/greed/corruption/etc etc etc has become so stale that I'm not shooting my drink out of my nose like I did back in the San Andreas days when the idea of a video game seriously parodying modern society was a new thing.
