Opinionated? I'm thinking you just like having yourself heard everywhere. You're more annoying than the forum you criticize, hypocrite.
32. Soda cans are too heavy to be picked up.
33. Some lights in real life can not be broken.
34. The best way to draw a spy out of hiding is to walk around in the darkness shouting obscenities(bringing the fight to him)
35. You can run around punching every dude in the face, but every once in a while you randomly will fail and the other guy will be able to grab you and hold you hostage while you dangle there helplessly, apparently with a complete lack of any muscle in your body quite suddenly and randomly.
Andddddd one more.
36. A re-imagined series may "revitalize" it, but at the cost of selling out a series for quick profit.
#35 Posted by Yummylee (23197 posts) -
...What? I expressed that I find this kind of topics annoying, clearly I am trying to be heard from every corner of the site through this single thread. 
What's more, how am I being hypocritical? Just because you find me to be annoying doesn't make me a hypocrit O.o If maybe I started a thread with me only posting my reply of considering myself to be opinionated, then it would be hypocritical >.> 
If that would be the case, well now you're being a hypocrit because now I find you to be much more annoying than this thread.

Hey now, Language isn't necessary here O.o I'm just wondering why you even bothered to post on this thread if you consider it so dumb? Clearly we use this thread to poke fun at the game as well as the developers, so it's not harming anything. In fact, you prob don't have to read this thread if you don't like it. It's not like anybody's forcing you to.
#37 Posted by Yummylee (23197 posts) -
Because like I said, I consider myself to be opinionated. Sure I could of just ignored it, but in forums people post their opinions positive and negative, and it's hardly like I was just trolling or whatever. 
And yeah well name calling wasn't necessary either, but you called me a hypocrite to begin with.

38. When you find a dead body an alarm is not necessary. However, if you see what might be somebody for a split second, then you should just start shooting.

The 360 version, yes. ANYTHING is better than that. However, the original Xbox version was practically Chaos Theory, therefore amazing.
