video game link of the day
As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a video gamer. Well, maybe not, but Electronic Gaming Monthly asked Henry Hill -- the gangster whose career was told in the book Wiseguy and the Martin Scorsese film GoodFellas -- to rate crime-wave video games such as Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Hitman 2. Hill's 14-year-old son Justin was along to help out his dad. The online edition features a general Q&A with the elder Hill that didn't appear in the magazine.
HH: Show me where the money is. I'll get the money. Oh, I'm in South Beach!
JH: They got money, Henry. Hit 'em! Go up and punch 'em!
HH: Wait, the girl on the roller skates, I want her! Where'd she go?
JH: Don't worry about that--hit the guy. Use the gun! Press Circle.
[Henry shoots some Vice City denizens before the cops arrive and make the collar.]
HH: Yeah? You just lost your college fund, Julian.
