@satansmagichat: I meant that his criticism was spot on and that fans of the game cannot defend against it. Maybe I'm just using the term incorrectly, though it's how I've always used it. Regardless, I'll edit it to prevent future confusion.

I'm really sorry. You make perfect sense. I might be intoxicated right now.

I bought it used and played it for ten minutes before it scared the pants off me and I haven't played it since. I'd really like to, though, just like I'd like to finish all the survival horror games I've purchased and never finished. It did seem really cool.

there was one particularly poignant remark made by Jeff that is indefensible. It was that the lines of dialogue were poorly done. They felt disjointed and did not form coherent mid battle banter. Viewers familiar with Gundam shows can tell you why. Those lines were simply quotes lifted directly from their respective shows, and placed within the game with a complete lack of context.

That sounds like the opposite of indefensible. That sounds like Jeff was spot on. Don't put in lines out of context just to please fans. I don't care if it's Gundam or Simpsons or Whatever. It's lazy. Pure and simple.

I meant his criticism is indefensible by the game because it is spot on, not that his statement is indefensible by himself. Note what I wrote: it is a criticism of how DWG3 inserted the dialogue. Either you misunderstood that, or you just thought the term indefensible meant the opposite of what it actually means.

I have on idea what that means. Can you walk me through it?

Eating dead flesh is not sexy.

Neither is paying terrorists to firebomb research centers or protesting against medicine that your leaders use. PETA supports terrorists and are giant hypocrites beside the point. If you believe in "animal rights", not matter how crazy I may think that sounds, joining PETA to fight for it is stupid beyond comprehension.

After playing through LA Noire, anything that relies on characters' faces, like Heavy Rain or Uncharted 2, all look pretty bad by comparison.

Tetris. I want more story, specifically explaining why the iron curtain can steal citizens' intellectual properties.

Also, Home Alone for the Genesis and Game Gear would've been awesome if not for the HA license.

Gave it to Child's Play.

Me too!

That's what I meant.

I've put thousands of hours into Counterstrike, League of Legends, and Team Fortress 2, yet there's no single player campaign. 0 Hours to finish the story. What a ripoff!

@satansmagichat:

Perhaps.

But at the same time, it could be reversed.

If you really did wait 2 years to play a game, you can't really expect people not to talk about, say, the ending, around you just because you haven't played it.

Maybe 2 years is a little exaggerated, I doubt anyone would wait that long, but there has to be some point where "spoilers" can be openly talked about.

SuperCycle pretty much got it spot on, in my opinion.

I get where you're coming from, especially when over time things like the Planet of the Apes have thought their "surprise" ending so ubiquitous that it's on the DVD cover. But on the other hand, you don't really need to even mention a spoiler unless you're in a detailed debate with someone that already knows the medium. I mean, when will it come up in actual conversation a specific spoiler with someone who hasn't seen it that warrants mention? Maybe you'll talk into an electric fan, imitating Chris Farley from Tommy Boy while saying "Luke I am your father." But when does it become an actual topic of discussion where you need to talk about the ending of Primal Fear with someone who's never seen the movie to begin with?
