‘Awesome’ Animator Knows You Aren’t Stupid

Arin Hanson, A.K.A. Egoraptor, creator of “Metal Gear Awesome” and other awesome ‘Awesome’ shorts, has gone and made himself another great cartoon series. ‘Sequelitis’ features Hanson and his special brand of thoughtful ranting while he discusses video game sequels throughout the ages.

As it turns out, Arin has been keeping secrets from us. Beneath the facade of a raging funny-man beats the heart of a true game design afficianado. In this latest episode of ‘Sequelitis’, Hanson goes far beyond just discussing Mega Man and its subsequent sequels and actually provides stirring insight into the way games are designed and played. Game designers, take note; you just might be surprised to at how much you can learn from this video.

And it doesn’t hurt that it’s actually really funny.
