Polygon reviewers kind of remind me of that person who can't like something unless it's extraordinary. You guys should look up the psychology term 'splitting'. Polygon reviews are the personification of splitting.
That describes Russ Frushtick to a tee. Whenever anyone (usually Justin or Griffin McElroy) would talk about liking a game, he'd jump in to talk about all the stuff he hated about it. I had to stop listening because he was so negative on everything.
Tigers are significantly more "endangered" than lions. If they were so badass they'd stop dying so much.
Yeah, they'd probably have an easier time in Africa. The 800 pound tiger would have a lot of delicious meals composed almost entirely of 500 pound lions. And gazelles. They'd probably eat the shit out of some gazelles.
I've been a fan of smash brothers since the original and enjoy the game immensely but something that has thoroughly confused me for years now is why the smash community (professional players, tournament players, and their respective communities) are so unbelievable toxic to new players, casual players, and anyone who doesn't like playing the game the "professional way" (Final destination, no items, yada yada yada).
So was your local Smash community mean to you? Or are you basing this off of a few people on the internet and saying that everyone in the community is like that? I've met nice Smash players locally, and for internet forums the NeoGAF Smash community is one of the nicest places on the internet.
Some assholes doesn't mean a community on the whole is "toxic." I't would be like calling the Giant Bomb community toxic just because some users like @mariachimacabre are assholes.
This is a 4 year old thread, technically, but still, you guys are pretty uncool to be ridiculing this girl. It's incredible how the nerds have become the bullies and feel smugly justified in being as terrible as the people that bullied them. I dunno if she took her videos down due to GB, but it seems a safe bet. Not cool duders.
Just so you know, she actually joined GB as a result of this thread and posted in this thread. She thought it was pretty funny, if I remember correctly.
