The Fox and the Grapes

I let my brother play on my 3DS yesterday and he said it was the worst game he'd ever played because it was too hard for him and he didn't understand what to do. It reminded me of one of Aesops Fables:

The Fox and the Grapes

One hot summer’s day a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch. “Just the things to quench my thirst,” quoth he. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: “I am sure they are sour.”

And the moral of the story is that "it is easy to despise what you cannot get".
