Video games are just low-culture but plenty of great writers were interested in low culture.

Pynchon even alludes to Kojima
“Only the framing material," Lucas demurely, "obvious influences, Neo-Tokyo from Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Metal Gear Solid by Hideo Kojima, or as he's known in my crib, God.”

Those pics just don't look right. I know they are but pics like pic related are the only ones I can associate with Pynchon. I wish I'd never seen the newer ones so that I only had these mysterious black and white photos of young Tommy to go off.

Is he worth getting into, and if yes, with which book do I start?
Are polish translations fine or do I obligatorily go for english versions? Not that it's much of a problem, other than avaibility/price.

How do you faggots read this guys crap? I've just tried reading 4 different books of his and had to stop. Fucking awful, how is this shite classed as literature? After seeing this trash, I will stick with things written prior to world war 2, or even the 20th century, thank you very much.

Hi, my name is Thomas Pynchon, and I suck at writing.
