Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/Garry's Mod
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
This article hadn't been made (surprisingly), so I did it. I'm sure it can use some work, but I think it's pretty funny, or at least a good concept.
|Humour:||4||Depends on knowing what the article is about, for one, and on finding poses of game charaters in compromising positions funny. So that's pretty much game fanboys only, which is a fairly narrow audience, there's nothing here for anyone else.|
|Concept:||4||Meh, it exists, and people with nothing better to do are using it to pose groups of pixels in vaguely titillating ways. Could maybe do with a more accessible approach - write for people who haven't played the game, and try to explain the concept to them.|
|Prose and formatting:||5||Nothing too bad about it, but I keep coming back to the fact that it's only really accessible to those in the know. While the box at the top does warn of this, I reckon opening it up to those who haven't a clue could be just what this needs.|
|Images:||5||Again, only funny to those in the know. I'm starting to sound like a stuck record here.|
|Miscellaneous:||4.5||Average of other scores|
|Final Score:||22.5||Funny to the target audience, a wasted read for anyone else. See comments below.|

I think I've made my main gripe clear. Problem is, the majority of readers will think this page is confusing, pointless, and sexcruft, and they may even pop it up on VHD. Now, that's the risk you take with such an article, but widening the scope might be just what you need here.
Think: try to explain to average users the concept more clearly, detail all of the possibilities the mod opens up. Then try to justify why most people just use it to create scenes of game characters in compromising positions. Done properly, this could have potential for decent comedy, as well as making the article more accessible.
Or you can leave it like it is, watch someone else ICU it again, remove the ICU tag without major change again, and watch as an admin gets shirty with you for doing so, then watch it get put up for VFD as gamecruft most people won't get. Your choice. I'm not saying I'll put it up myself, that's just what I suspect will happen.
Oh, and you might want to pop the not safe for work tag on it - while there are no tits or anything, some people might, y'know, look at you funny if they see those pics on your monitor!
