Only boss in any off the games ive had a problem with is the giant rat in ds2.

That thing has the worst hitboxes of any enemie ever. It hit me in the back when I was in front of it with a shield several times. That with the broken camera just made him a pain.

That thing was total bullshit. It doesn't even look like a rat - it's a giant scabby dog.

"Don't use lock-on and attack it's ankles" is not a clever solution to a boss fight, it's an admission that your targeting system sucks balls. And it's particularly unforgivable in a game where you could lock on to a previous boss's ankles.

I want to say Llamatron, but I seem to recall that you couldn't play that with two joysticks on the Amiga, unlike the Atari ST version.

Jeff Minter Also made an "interesting" version of Defender/Stargate.

I wasn't joking about the authentic ZX Spectrum pixel art.

I'd like to contribute. Hit me up if you're after some authentic looking ZX Spectrum pixel art.

Vote implies equal weighting so the very premise is meaningless and so is any deconstruction of its meaning or implication.

You're not entirely incorrect, except my premise is based on the system of proportional representation.

I have bought a ton of games multiple times, usually on a console then via a Steam deal. And then there are the mass of games I bought and will never play, some of which are PS2 games

I keep buying DLC for DOA5. I regret nothing. Well, actually, I regret that more companies don't follow in their footsteps. Fighting games or not, just give me the option to buy a ton of shamelessly fun, dumb costumes and I'll buy them. To be fair, some others games do do it from time to time, but they all tend to be rather...shall we say...conservative.

This complicates the whole democratic process analogy to a degree. One voter want's a say in what his candidate wears while they are in office, while the other votes for the reintroduction of the gold standard.

Nothing to write-off voting with your wallet as a valid way to steer video games on to further greatness, though.
