Do you remember what you were up to in 2004? I was in high school attempting to talk to girls without sweating puddles and stuttering over every third word. But when I wasn’t destroying my chances with the opposite sex I was most likely on my Playstation 2, just like many people my age were. But why bring up 2004? Because that’s the year that PS2 game The Bard’s Tale was released. And today it’s being remembered for one thing and one thing only: insulting its gamers.
