I like games and music that are completely and unashamedly over the top. That’s about half the reason why I picked up Brutal Legend for the Xbox 360 a while back. The game, which was hailed as the most metal game of all time, featured a ridiculous metal soundtrack, cameos and voice contributions from numerous metal artists, and had Jack Black as the voice of the main character. It either spelled success or hilarious failure, and god knows I wanted to be in on the ride. Unfortunately, though, mediocrity gripped the game about halfway through, with a fundamentally broken stage battle system breaking up what I really wanted to do in the game: run dudes over in my totally sweet ride.
