@Zetetic_Elench: If privilege continues to lead to this ineffective dialogue where many people tune out and post comments like those featured in Patrick's article maybe it is better to explain the situation with new terminology.

Exactly, but I feel like some people would rather not hear our opinions in this discussion. Namely, the people throwing around the term privileged like it's a de facto thing.
I almost feel like exemption would be a more appropriate term than privilege, since it's more about the lack of a bad thing being done to you than it is an extra good thing happening.
That would probably be a better route to take, I agree.
Or rather, it would make more sense, not necessarily be better.
I agree I would refer you to this article on Kotaku talking about a similar subject, where they use "Difficulty Setting" instead of privilege. http://kotaku.com/5910857/straight-white-male-the-lowest-difficulty-setting-there-is
After all the hub-bub over the ME3 ending I decided it was finally time to try one of the more popular franchises this console generation.
Just finished the first one today (took about a week) I have to say it was pretty good. A few glitches, and forgetting to save after I did even the smallest task usually ended with me replaying an hour long section of the game. Overall, I thought the game was pretty good and I am quite excited to play ME2.
In the interest of no-spoilers (although I know some parts just from listening to the bombcast) is there anything I should know going into ME2, and eventually 3? Anything I might miss in either?
PS. I got down with Liara, Wrex lived and is bff with me, Kaiden died, the council lived, I'm paragon.
@Kamikaze_Tutor: i believe i just have, everything fucked my face for 10 minutes then i got the kill screen achievement, watching creds now
Go back to those and use your New Game + power and take a look around.
Can someone tell me where the Rosetta Stone is for Fez? You know, the break out moment where you can start making sense of the alphabet/numbers? I am avoiding all of the spoilers because i really want to do this on my own, but I feel at this point I am focusing too much on the wrong stuff. I am NG+
Look for the fox jumping over the dog.
man this shit is crazy. I was interested in Fez before, but now this looks a bit too complex for a video game. Don't get me wrong, game looks awesome and I'm not knocking anyone down for playing it and deciphering mad shit in it, props to you all. For me, If I am going to use substantial amount of brain power and a multiple hours to decipher a video game, I might as well use that effort to do something productive in either making some money or learning something new.
But you are learning something new in Fez.
Back at the starting village, where you go through the fireplace.
