Aggressively cute

I couldn’t understand why I didn’t like undertale, indie darling of computer games. Good story, memorable characters, intelligent gameplay. Then it hit me: it’s too damm cute! I like cute; cat pictures, Pokémon, babies. But some cute is so in your face, it feels aggressive. Like “aren’t we cute????!!!” Undertale, with its smiling skeletons that talk in capitals on the rhythm of 8-bit music gets up in my grill. Same goes for the teletubies who I have been longing to club to death since I was five.
