The Big Bang Theory has been a tolerate/hate relationship with me. Like eating Taco Bell at two in the morning, it is something that is best avoided but for one reason or another I give into its delicious, crusty siren calls. I originally started watching it sometime after season two started after being told to give it a try. I am one of those people that I do not feel like I can build a proper opinion regarding something unless I've experienced it. So I gave it a shot. The first two seasons were nauseating to sit through. Overwhelming stereotypes were forced down viewers' throats tainting any possibility of it being enjoyable. However, going into season three the characters started to develop slightly better personalities; acting more like actual people with conflicting complexities instead of just being the "awkward, nerdy" guy or the "super smart but stupid" guy. Even though the geeky jokes are very forced and mainstreamed, the science humor added a slight bit of charm that started to appear which led me to watch through it the fourth season until it went downhill again. Nonetheless, I had invested enough time into it to keep going. It soon became the thing I watched when bored and sleep deprived.

Disclaimer: (Yeah, late again as usual but oh well...)The first part of this article may start off non-game related, but I promise it is relevant to the topic. Just bear with me for this the best example I could provide for my point.
Also, I am going to be doing like I did when I wrote about the Chzo Mythos series by providing a link to an image that farther describes what I have to say without risking unintentionally spoiling anything. So please, do not read the links if you have any intention of playing or watching what I am speaking of.
Thank you, and you may now continue with your reading. Anyway...
Somewhere in the heart of New York City, a cursed bloodline roams the darkened streets. A shattered man silently prowls, hunting down rival Mafia mobs as its host struggles to reclaim the fame he lost. Yet even as he surrounds himself with glory, nothing can fill the void that cut through him. A faded photograph sets on a shaky table decorated with withered rose pedals and a flickering candle. The woman’s smiling face pierces him as the voice of the Darkness mocks him, reminding him of the hell he is damned to live in.
The Darkness first slithered onto store shelves back in 2007. As a mediocre shooter, its presentation and atmosphere were greatly unappreciated but The Darkness has resurfaced again. Its ugly heads sprouting from its new sequel upon which I must warn now…Spoilers of the first game will be included. So if you have not yet played it, go out, get it, beat it in a Saturday, and then come back to read about The Darkness II. It will be the best seven dollars you will ever spend.
