@MegaLombax: Patronizing? Why? Because she is a lady? Or because she is too stubborn to realize the core mechanic of a game?
I still am confused as to why people are unable to take helpful suggestions from a more experienced person. I don't feel patronized when my Dad tells me how to fix a car - I feel fing greatful that he is able to impart knowledge onto me - even if he doesn't always do it in the nicest way possible.
The thing with Video Games is that on a core level they are driven by mechanics - if @DoctorDanger99 was telling her that the opinions she drew from a movie/tv show/art exhibit were wrong there would be a problem, but telling someone the "correct" means to play a game is akin to my dad teaching me how to change my oil.
I don't like backseat drivers, but when I learned stick a little constructive feedback was appreciated instead of having to troubleshoot my way through the situation. At a certain point I became comfortable with the "correct" way of driving stick and thus stopped having to have a running dialogue with a more experienced person if they happened to be in the car at the time.
