Where are these brown games?

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.

30% of statistics about statistics are usually false.

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.
