Hey, you want one of those fucking list articles? Yeah, you lap that shit up, don’t you. Oh don’t worry, Games That Rocked can do pointless, numerical based, easily digestible tripe with the best of them. Who am I kidding, you’re not even going to read this. There’s an Upworthy article that YOU JUST WON’T BELIEVE only one click away.

Well, now that I’m alone, I present to you:

7 Ways Drop7 is like life

 

“But what is Drop7?”, I hear you bellow, foaming incoherently into your overpriced coffee, like the poorly made assumption by me that you are.
