Recently, it has come to my attention that there are members here who like things I don't like, like golf and wargames and dislike things I do like, like worker placement game and coöps.

Obviously, if I don't like something, it's because that thing is stupid. Why should people here like stupid things? Conversely, if I like something, it must be cool. People should like what I like.

How can I get people to stop liking stupid things and only like the things I like? I'm not even sure if such people are even members here. They are more like watchers or over-there-ers. Not people doing what I think this hobby should be.

And oh, even though this is a post on a discussion board, I really don't want your opinions or discussion, I just wanted to post about how right I am in my opinions.

I agree but would like to point out that it is entirely different when I say that certain games are rubbish.

That doesn't count because lots of people agree with me. But some games fully deserve their sacred cow status on here and should get privileges that the games I don't like don't. Because my games are ART and yours aren't.

Obviously, the way to convince people is to post about it on BGG and ignore their dissenting opinions. Looks like you're on the right track.

Well naturally i have to disagree with you in every point you make so i quote sections of your post to tell you how wrong your opinion is and how superior mine is.

Like this:

I think you are wrong!

Obviously this is also wrong. For a lot of reasons but mainly because my opinion is different than yours!

I don't even know how i can quantify how much better my opinion on this particular topic is.

There you have it. Served.

Oh and also, can someone recommend a game for me and my newborn 2 weeks old infant? I think it likes CCGs and it's like super smart so it can easily play games a 4 weeks old could play.

After reading your post, I've decided to stop liking golf. I'm actually feeling a bit better already. Please could you suggest something new for me to like, and I shall promise to like it.

my first child will arrive in just under 6 weeks now. I have always wanted to be internet famous (being actually famous is too much work) so I am going to start a new video series called "gaming with baby" where my newborn explains games like Anachrony and Euphoria and Elysium. Keep an eye out.

If you liked golf, you should try pool. it's like golf in that you hit a ball with a stick, but it has a lot more interaction and less of the boring parts like walking

Since you said you like golf, you should try football (soccer). It has absolutely nothing to do with anything you said you like, because I didn't actually read what you wrote.

I just recommend things I like because if other people like what I like, it validates my choices and reaffirms my belief that I make good choices in ways that looking back at my actual choices does not.

Hi Desiree. There’s nothing wrong with liking the games that you do, and I’m sure that you think you enjoy playing them. But if you switched to playing my games, your enjoyment would be greatly enhanced! It’s a shame how many people trudge along getting limited satisfaction out of games they believe are great, when they could just check out the games rated 8-10 in my collection and have their gaming lives immediately transformed.

Absolutely! The general forum is set up to cater exclusively to Eurogamer tastes and we should respect that.

well I like Rahdo. Everybody should like Rahdo! He's a likable guy. What's not to like.

Tom Vassel... meh. I mean, I wouldn't kick him out of my house for playing Blood Rage or anything but yeah, whatever. I give permission to like him or not. I'm indifferent.

I have created the below post so people can just copy and paste the section between the two lines. It will save precious time in the future.:

---------

I can't believe the rise of [game genre / mechanic] lately. I can't believe anyone would like [thing] or even consider it a game.

And don't even get me started on the rise of [game type], how boring!! I can't believe people keep buying [game publisher]'s games. They are the bane of the industry.

What do you all think??

---------


You're welcome.
