I missed this the other day, but Penny Arcade just turned ten. Given our (gamers) fondness for both Penny Arcade and base ten numbering, I guess I expected more of a fuss.
I like this one, which was mysterious to me when it first appeared. Then I read it years later – this particular year, to be precise – after having finally played the game in question, and discovered the truth that it contained. That is to say, it took me three years to get the joke.
I am still waiting for the bright new future promised in this one.
Ten years. Amazing. Congrats to Mike & Jerry.
