Your post is super effective. I think you may be on to something.

You speak much of freedom, but tell me: for all the choice games give you, how much does it give the characters within these narratives? Have you ever perhaps considered that you rob them of the very freedom that you value so highly? What is the difference between what you do to Terra and what Kefka does to her? I imagine it is but a number. Without my crown and the powers that come with it, the characters shall remain but your slaves for your perverse crimes.

So you're saying videogames shouldn't be played? I know we're just being silly, but uh, you lost me there. ha. I'm just saying there is no legitimate king of videogames. Such a concept has no place in them. Videogames are an outlet of freedom and participation that can conjure up all kinds of emotions and reactions. :)

@truthtellah:

I'm saying that player agency can come at the cost of proper characterization. Quite the delicate balance, indeed.

A.) No. There is such a King, and I be he.

B.) You know I'm using this video, right?

Definitely, just like there is always a balance between security and freedom, so must there be a balance between player agency and the artist's intent.

And while a man may claim himself a king, he is no greater than any other. ;)

(and you may freely use any of the music and videos I linked to in this discussion. In fact, I encourage it.)

@truthtellah:

But does the artist even know how to use the tool of player agency to their desired effect? Aye, there's the rub.

And why is that? Do not my powers put me above others? Do not they make me a Nietzschean ubermensch?

(And why are you so bad at linking music? The moods fit only about half the time.)

Whether an artist does it skillfully or not is up to players to decide. Developers will continue to do what they will do.

ha. A king with no clothes and no power is hardly a king at all. Just a man claiming royalty while sitting at the same table as us all. A fun farce, but a farce no less.

(and I'd say I do better than some. Though, sometimes it's the context of what's happening alongside the music that matters most. Can't be too closed-minded about it.)

(I do find all of this funny at least. I do like fun! We're all just equal folks having fun, and the OP shouldn't mind being noticed and just enjoy himself. That's what I've been saying and showing. heh.)

Just attack some of the staff who have different opinions than you. Worked for s0nichedgeh0g999 or whatever the dude's name was. That's infamy, though.

I'm convinced that was just Jeff.

Do what I do.

Lurk around until you see a common opinion held by many that you disagree with, and then argue it into the ground. When that's done, continue lurking around, avoiding opportunities to bond with your fellow forumgoers until you can find another widely held opinion that you can come out and argue into the ground.

This way, you get the most people to hate you with the least amount of effort.

Fastest and easiest way is to give away games or order people pizza. People don't forget generosity.

Popularity leads to intimacy...

Oh, well then the key to becoming more popular is to be more knowledgeable.

So, study.

I just kind of post haphazardly. Do it when you feel like it and try to add something to the discussion. I actually don't know if I'm really "noticed" or "known" on here, but I'm sure people go "Oh, it's that one guy." when they run across my posts. But you really shouldn't care about it.

Unless... you're trying to break in here and/or use this place as a launching pad for something else. In that case, just blog the shit out of stuff and try and get heady with your material. That always leads to a pretty good discussion on the forums. And post as much as you possibly can.

And never change your avatar. People will associate it to you. I'm pretty sure that's the only reason anyone here would ever go "It's that one guy" about me.

Disagree with everything, and have an unique avatar that people will recognize you with.

Especially the first part is effective, albeit maybe not to a positive outcome, you will still get attention. And hey, isn't that really what matters!

PONIES RULE! for example.

Spam the mods/staff requesting to be a mod. Also, post a lot of porn/requests for an Endurance Run/pictures of you doing drugs.

I've seen all of these happen except for the drugs thing. Did that actually happen once? And how did I miss it? Damn. These forums get wild!
