I rather enjoyed the heated conversation. It was nice hearing them talk passionately about games. I'm on Brad's side in this though. Most shooters with short time to kill just boil down to killing the other team as fast as possible.
Smite is pretty different because of the perspective shift. I guess monday night combat would be the most unique? MOBA is pretty narrow genre that seems like if you stray to far it is no longer a MOBA.
I don't think you're going to get a very good discussion on this subject from a site whose user base is predominately males under 30. If you'd love to read real discussion on the matter, it's out there. If you want a choir to preach to, then by all means, continue.
I'm not sure I understand. If it takes women to tell what is sexist and what isn't, then we are all in deep trouble. The GiantBomb community is one of the more reasonable gaming communities that I know of. I was just interested in what reasonable people would think. I'm a male under 30, but I'm still very capable of treating women as the equals they are. I can only assume you guys do that as well. Hence, I don't understand why this couldn't lead to thoughts on this subject being shared.
The community is alright on most things, but they really seem to get up in arms whenever sexism is brought up.
I think Vinny's a flat out better host. So I would like it. Jeff was fun to mix it up every once in a while when Ryan was the regular host and he's an ok host, but Ryan and Vinny just seem better. I think they should give it a try for a bit at least.
