Massively OP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards continue today with our blooper award for most ridiculous article that was specifically our fault. And the winner is…
I mentioned in the “best article joke almost nobody got” piece that Eliot is fond of goofy posts. He did an all-caps post from the POV of Innoruuk. He did an entire Betawatch in terribad pirate slang. And then there was the time he wrote a Conan Exiles post to the tune of Beauty and the Beast (“build a house that’s long, maybe see a dong, Conan’s going east”). It’s in your head now, isn’t it? Yes. So he usually wins these types of awards. It’s in his blood.
However, this year’s winner is actually Andrew’s listicle on sexy monsters in Monster Hunter World. I have no idea how he kept a straight face writing this. And why did I approve this pitch? I’m slightly mortified right now, and also dying laughing? The whole thing is hilarious because of how meticulous he is about it. It is not a joke article. I hope it makes you super uncomfortable because that’s half the fun! “This is easily the most erotic MMO article I’ve ever read,” one commenter quipped.
