Why attack the audience when there are many more worthwhile targets to vilify? (He sorta of does this but stop complaining about those who suffer from the misdeeds of others, attack the powers that be that are the cause of the "'Mericans r dum" stereotype) Game companies that inundate the market with the same base game concepts, marketers that hypnotize audiences to buy and worship worthless material goods, food companies that flood the market with shit that has been proven to make us addicted to substances that are both harmful to our mental and physical health, governments and their financial backers that cut costs for education yet funnel all of our money to warmongering, and people who push religious dogma instead of scientific education and progress of human evolution all need to be basically brought to trial! We have been groomed to be mindless cattle who consume and work for the elite upper echelons of society.

Video games have the potential to be more than just mere entertainment, it could be a wonderfully complex educational tool and a diverse medium for artists push human thought and development to new levels. But nah, Americans are dumb give them another fps about killing people different from whitey.

@Butler: I know this is the unpopular opinions thread, but holy shit you seem annoying as fuck.

Nope, you're right to say that here. I'm enjoyed by pretty much everyone I come in contact with. ;)

To be able to purchase and eat meat; one should have to learn to properly butcher and prepare said animal. That includes killing the animal themselves.

There should be a limit of how many children people have.

Marriage in its current form is obsolete. A diamond ring and getting on one knee is not romantic. A woman's wedding day is not her most important day.

Everything you do and are is inherently meaningless, you subjectively apply meaning to your interaction with physicality and your consciousness. In the long run nothing matters.

It is difficult being a straight white male even though I am in a hetero-normative patriarchal dominated society.

I walked out of Wall-E because it was so bland and boring.

Ketchup on pasta is better than sauce.

Cellphones need to be destroyed.

The Dreamcast is unequivocally the greatest gaming invention created. It won the console wars between Xbox, PS2, and Gamecube.

Dr. Who and all the show's fans can all go suffocate themselves in a Tardis.

Most people aren't fat because they are lazy; it is caused by multiple catalysts such as, but not limited too income level, genetics, and geographical location. They are trying to poison us and they are succeeding.

Most anime is utter drivel and gives a really bad name for the medium.

Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job is hilarious and most people really don't get it.

Krillin is the best character in DBZ. Bad ass little human dude who fought all those aliens just because.

Most of what hipsters find cool I already have been enjoying for years and had to do so ridiculed by everyone around me until now that it hit mainstream status. Now I can't even complain that I liked things before they were cool because hipsters stole that too. I listened to lps, shot photographs on polaroids and 35 mm, and wore button down t shirts my whole life because we were too poor to "Get the next best thing" in terms of technology and clothing. Now these hipsters think I'm really cool or keep applauding me for my style and taste and I feel empty.

It's not so much the fault of the writers but rather corporate. The execs tell them they need to change the show based on market research, polls, testing groups etc. Lost had so many more seasons planned but they got cut short and the writers had to just blaze forward with a rushed and hurried ending because they were forced to. Writers want to give you the best story possible but they are roadblocked by creatively hollow people with a lot of money. Look at all the shitty movie franchises we have. Do you think most of the writers enjoyed working on such inebriated droll? Of course not, they need a paycheck and are forced by a suit to do rewrites and add in some more product placement.

This just means we need a new Starship Troopers remake, please no more Paul Verhoeven and Casper Van Diem though.

You bite your tongue good sir. The original movie is too good. I know the book is amazing but the movie mutated into something awesome. Sequels could die.

I have a bit of an addiction. I usually have around 30+ tea lights placed around my room when I meditate. Thank you cheap bags from Ikea. I'm big on scents but not so much candles so I have incense in tandem with odorless candles. And then the fireplace or firepit depending if the weather requires me to be indoors or out.

I kinda like the idea of playing a more mundane fantasy game where you're not the prophesied hero or the uber important guy. Just a dude who works a farm and sometimes has to fend off dire bears and ents and other malicious magical creatures.

Can someone photoshop a large spider with 8 snake limbs? I want to be afraid of that thing.
