@Meteora: Ironically, the right to protest makes protesting completely and totally obsolete. Peaceful protest is useless since it's allowed and therefore is commonplace, and violent protest is seen as unlawful by the people not protesting. Ironically, whenever a protest happens in America, be it violent or non-violent, a passer-by will be on the side of the government automatically because of this.
Whether or not the founding fathers were this perceptive, I don't know. If so, they were dictatorial minds that knew how to dictate right.
" Why bother protesting? Have hippies ever accomplished anything by doing this? No. God I hate hippies. If only I had a drill like Cartman. "
You can't win a protest with guitars. Only explosives. Ghandi's peaceful protest only worked because the people that were protesting were getting their asses kicked by British occupation forces. There has to be struggle for a protest to have any meaning; peaceful protest is an oxymoron.
I don't know much about G20 at all. In fact, this is the first I've heard of it, seeing as I don't have cable and therefore don't watch the news. But, if they're doing something wrong, then protest is a good thing. Senselessly breaking shit, though, isn't really precise use of force.
I can't really think of another sequel that totally disappointed me, but Oblivion was a let down. I still played it a lot, but it lost so much of what made Morrowind one of my favorite games. It tried to be an action RPG too much, in my opinion, with poor results. I mean, Morrowind's action was horrible in terms of action games, but it wasn't about that, so it was alright. Oblivion tried to make it about that too much, and ended up missing the point to me.
I'd say I had similar feelings towards RDR. I mean, I looked at it and saw it as fairly consistently alright. Presentation was really good, but as far as the gameply goes, it seemed like there was a lot to do, but that none of it was all that compelling.
Though, I didn't see it as something I should like, since I figured that this is another case of people suckling at Rockstar's teat. I haven't been a big fan of them since San Andreas.
