I've invented a new unit for measuring how bad things are. I call it Suck Factor, and it is measured in dysons. 1Dy-4Dy is for things that are So Bad Its Good
. 5-10Dy denotes a case of So Bad Its Horrible
. (For benchmarks: Manos The Hands Of Fate
is 4Dy, while the collected works of Coleman Francis
score 7Dy, except Red Zone Cuba
which is 8Dy).
FATAL had exceeded 9 kilodysons
by the end of character creation, and proceeded to expand into numbers so large that scientific notation is almost unable to handle them. It really is that bad.
As to why it managed such an abysmal score...where to begin
? The creepy sexual undertones, verging on overtones, that suffuse almost everything that could conceivably possess creepy sexual undertones? The refusal to do the freaking research? The pages and pages of charts broken only by badly drawn porn? The ludicrously
complex rules? The sexism? The racism? The militant stupidity? All of the above, at once, on fire?
This game is abysmal, abhorrent, appalling, and generally every other synonym for 'bad' you can think of. Do not read it, lest you find yourself cleaning out the inside of your skull with barbed wire and bleach.
All in all, **** (no, that doesn't mean "4 stars". It just means Sound Effect Bleep
