@spicyrichter: This is ridiculous. Dan is right. When you're discussing anything subjective, like if Monster Hunter is good or bad, the opinion part is implied. I'm not ending each sentence in "IMO" because we're adults and it should be obvious. Care less about people disliking things you like
I don't like monster hunter either. But here's the thing: I didn't just say "Monster Hunter is bad", it's just not for me. I also don't like Dark Souls. Not for me. But I'm not in a position to say it's bad because I haven't given it enough time to form that opinion
When someone says something is bad, especially when they haven't given it time to actually form a valid opinion, they're doing it to be inflammatory for inflamitories sake. Something isn't "objectively bad" just because you don't get it. If we're all adults, as you say, then we'd leave room for other opinions and avoid the irritating declarative statements that Drake is so fond of bringing up.
There are things I really like about Dan: I love that he wants to have a good time, all the time, and love every second of his life. That's great. But when you're doing it at the expense of everyone else, al la "I don't care, as long as I'm having fun it doesn't matter to me", that's a pretty shitty attitude.
Or maybe YOU'RE the one being pedantic here? If I say Monster Hunter is a bad game, then feel free to know that's my opinion. Seriously, you're not acting like an adult when you're being so childish about this.
