How long before we can add people to those planets, and build cities?
In fact, it would be amazing if we could build our entire solar system, every meteor, every space rock. And then build every town and city on the world, and create the people, give them an AI, and then after so long they start to figure out their own paths, and then not long after that they're doing the exact same things in the virtual world that the real ones are doing here.
Now fast forward the program, see who wins the next super-bowl, the next kentucky derby, the next olympics, and place your bets. =D
The moment we can do that, we have to start reconsidering our own existence a bit, don't we.
Thank you for bringing in the new year by making me feel a simmering, familiar sense of disappointment towards the internet.
Actually let me elaborate with my actual thoughts instead of just leaving a pithy comment. The reason this article is bullshit isn't because it's trying to do that whole feminism equality whatever whatever thing that people get raging hateboners for. It's because its argument is bullshit. Tomb Raider didn't get dismissed in GOTY discussions because it's a bunch of men in a room, it got dismissed because there were just straight up better games than it this year and, in the long run, Tomb Raider did nothing special. There was nothing surprising about it. It wasn't a bad game, it just wasn't the game to break the mold, and had there been any female voice in the room worth their salt regarding games, I'm sure they would have more or less shared that same opinion.
@jennibelle: You just came in and stealth bombed the forums with the best post of the year in literally the eleventh hour. You're my new favorite. (Everyone is my favorite on this website. Except that guy).
Though I cannot summon up any one specific moment, there have been many times where Drew has shrewdly allowed us to glimpse at his sense of humor while the other guys are talking and it always gives me a chuckle. I think one particular incident was around halloween when Vinny was telling tales of busy halloween streets, and Drew inferred children were speedbumps. Yeah, that was pretty good.
