I think that creates just more work for mods. My suggestion was based on trying to help mods out a bit, not cause more trouble :D

They already have to come in here and go through all the posts. They would have to process more aliases with direct submission, of course, but it'd be a streamlined process. Limiting it to high-points users would keep it from being too crazy.

At any rate, there must be a better solution than the current one. It's not great for users or mods right now.

@def: Aliases are too easily abused to give normal users points for them.

Perhaps aliases could be moderated even for >5000-point users?

FEAR is worth playing.

FEAR 2 is worth playing if you can tolerate mediocre gameplay for some good atmosphere and interesting expansion on the FEAR fiction.

FEAR 3 is worth playing if you can tolerate its nonsense fever-dream version of the FEAR fiction for some pretty good gameplay. It's really not bad, divorced from any pretense of being a proper third FEAR game.

Took me about a cumulative hour to get through that little encounter. Then after I killed the guy, the game crashed to desktop.

I was not a fan of the boss fights in that game even when they worked properly.

My dad loves depressing, bleak movies and I'm sometimes roped into watching them. The worst were probably Deliverance and Missing. Good movies, I suppose, but I didn't enjoy them one bit.

That would be entirely too familiar and thus depressing.

But if they went with the average Japanese person's idea of life in the US, ie nonstop drive-by shootings, that could be rather entertaining.

I think both of those pages are pretty well done, and distinguish themselves from one another.

I didn't say they weren't well-done or didn't distinguish themselves. I just think that a hard split between the two concepts is more confusing than useful on GB.

In video games, there are very few cases where someone is specifically described as a sociopath as opposed to a psychopath. In fact, many of the characters tied to the Sociopath page are less "sociopaths" and more just dicks (eg, Ganondorf, Duke Nukem, Axel) who happen to show some signs of ASPD, ones that are ingrained in villain/anti-hero archetypes anyway.

That is excellent, though I always imagined Big Jeffrey in a ten-gallon hat and a beige suit.
