@JasonR86: I'm not sure that those opinions are technically "unpopular" as they are shared by slightly less than 50% of the US voting population. You want unpopular political opinions? You should hear mine! I'm not going to get into it here, but I assure you that they are pretty far out there.

Oh please, share. PM welcome.

Barack Obama does not deserve to be Time's Person of the Year just like he didn't deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.

Increasing taxes on the rich will hurt job growth in the US because they will start to send their business out of the country to lower costs.

The new trends for health care will increase mental health problems across the US because the new health care plan will only pay for enough sessions to deal with surface level issues. Deep down issues that actual make life unbearable won't be addressed because the sessions required to lead to that big of a change won't be payed for.

Speaking of the rich, it's shitty that the US has made them the scapegoat for whatever is causing the US troubles at the moment.

The poor won't be helped by the new healthcare plans or by job creation because they have bigger issues that would need to addressed over a long period of time and many of those problems are completely out of their hands to begin with.

Substance abuse treatment positions may cease to exist in the way they are defined now because that treatment doesn't generate revenue. Thus there will be a move to address abuse problems through the medical model. Or prescriptions. Which misses the point entirely doesn't it?

Very unpopular and very true.

Jrpgs are terrible especially in terms of storytelling. Even Persona 4 which was only bearable due to Jeff and Vinny being awesome. It's like the Japanese just don't understand human interactions. Although storytelling on average is bad in games Jrpgs are bad on a whole new level.

Also I liked Sonic Adventure 2.

No, no. Humans don't understand japanese interactions.

  • I'd rather them remake flawed games that should have been great instead of ones that were done right the first time.

@I_smell: Great post. I don't really get what Ben Kuchera is trying to achieve. I find him boring most of the time.

Some links would be appreciated: "I actually read a bunch of good design articles that dissect how games work, but those are more just like thesis things"

You know, it might just be me, but is anybody else hoping this next mass effect is going to be L.A. Noire in space?

Sounds good to me.

Technically, Diablo is only the Lord of Terror.

El Diablo in spanish is the Devil, Satan. You know, Lucifer.
