Further proof

Want more proof that Wil Wheaton is cool? Apparently he reviews video games for the Onion's AV Club. If I hadn't been primed to be on the lookout for Wil Wheaton, I probably would have just chalked it up to someone with an unfortunate name!
Enduring contribution to gaming history: R.C. Pro-Am combined the simple concept of racing a little car with the equally simple concept of blasting the crap out of your opponents. This was such a successful formula that Rare went on to combine the simple concept of a father and son running through the jungle with the equally simple concept of talking monkeys, creating Donkey Kong Country, one of the greatest Super Nintendo titles of all time. —Wil Wheaton

Wil Wheaton is the author of Dancing Barefoot and Just A Geek. He has a magic remote that controls the future.
