    Am I the only one hurt by Steams indie pack being titled the potato sack?

    O-o Just wondering, because it tells me that the people that run the marketing department (at least) think of the popular indie games as still something that's generally thought of as dirty, cheap, and not really of high praise.


    Just asking.

    It's part of Valve's April Fool's Day joke, the "Potato Fool's Day", and the developers of ALL of those games participated, adding potato-themed achievements and easter eggs to their games this week.

    Also I don't think I've ever heard of potato being used as a derogatory term, lol.

    The potato had once the reputation as the low quality food of low quality people.

    In the time of the black plague, they were seen by Catholics as the Devils fruit, as it was a fruit that was dug up from the ground. If you ate it, you were praising Satan... At least XD in those times. But still, point proven.
