A gameday is coming up, and Marvel Heroes was proposed. I like Marvel Heroes. My friend (we'll call him Greg to protect his identity) said he read some reviews and soured on it. He won't listen to me since I've made him play games he wasn't man enough for in the past (I'm partly joking here in case it isn't obvious), so I'm hoping he'll listen to strangers on the internet.

So tell me Marvel Heroes fans, why should Greg play this game?

Extra points if you start your post with "Dear Greg" or something like that.

Greg subscribes to all my posts like a creeper, so I know he'll tune in.

Thanks in advance!

Dear Greg,

Out of all the superhero games I have played, this one captures the theme of fighting crimes and pasting villains the best. It's a bit complicated and layered, but at least it will only last an hour or so.

Never trust a review. Read the ratings comments instead.

Also, just man up and play the damn game.
It's fun. I swear.

Dear Greg,

I have played probably a couple thousand games, I run a convention and own well over 500. Out of all of those games, I only ever keep multiple copies of games that I consider to be really awesome. There have only been two games on that list. Marvel Heroes is one of them.

It may not be for everyone, but theme/flavor-wise, it's a really great game.

Enjoy!

Well played, Hector! We should give it shot.

The real question: Can it hold a candle to Cultures of Man?

Thanks for the plug Greg - oops, I guess your real name is Greg. So much for anonymity.


Thanks also to strangers on the internet - you guys are great. Looks like you convinced my friend Greg.
