I decided to finally dive into Bit Runner 2 last night and see what it was about and something that comes up in the loading screen really irked me. It was a message that said "Believe it or not not all games have to be brown!". I find this in bad taste. Is this developer really trying to poke fun at other more successful developers? 95% of games aren't brown and 99% of games that people say are, aren't.

Uncharted has actually poked fun at this with the "Next-Gen" cheat, where it turns everything into a brownish dull color. Halo 4 does this as well, with a "Next-Gen" Filter item in the Forge mode.

A lot of games are - honestly - justified, though. Fallout 3 being one of them.

This statement is about as accurate as your statistics.

I'm glad it pissed you off, now get back to your brown games.

It's one of those attempts of a developer trying to be "clever" but failing miserably.

That may be true but it's a post apocalyptic wasteland... Is it supposed to be bright purple?

I'm just sick of "brown" being used in such a negative way. I've played over 200 PS3 games and I can't think of 10 that are brown.
