Yeah, your kid looked tired in that picture this morning. But I bet he had a delightful nap after that. Why is sleep never delightful in games? I hate sleeping in games. I always feel like I'm missing stuff, except in Bully, which enforced healthy sleep for the main character (good public service, Rockstar!). I never enjoy having to go to some role-playing game inn and then having the game blink into the future. Just for the sake of healing? Weak. Let me play through a dream or something.

Anyway, there are stories for you to read and stories for you to write. Fun! Kotaku just doesn't stop giving.

Max Payne's dreams were so awful it scared developers away from the idea.
