I freaking hate Battleship. For two hours I sat there getting miss, after miss, after miss. Finally my brother sank my last ship (my PT boat) and then, then my mom walks in and says, "Why are there white pegs on your battleship, J?" (I was still six or seven and full of optimism)
Dirty rotten cheater.
I always kind of got the impression that Battleship was that game that let all the kids live out a navel battle from all the Navy movies in Hollywood at the time. Oh, the irony.
