I always took issue with that bit; I know that it might been exaggerated for consistency's sake, but the fact that some people will take this as a fact bothers me.

Games do that but so do the other mediums, it is just that games reveal the faults within while the other are indifferent to them.

 

I often thought of as a comparison and argument to anyone that proposes that games have a high level of  requirement to experience, to simply read a very eloquent and esoteric writing of  Shakespeare and simply go at the end: "Now tell me, what the **** was that going on about?!". Because reading comprehension is a skill and not everyone that holds a book knows what its written.

 

Maybe I'm overthinking  it but I long have understood that logic and rational thought are separate from facts and knowledge and that there are too many well educated idiots.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

"The man of virtuous soul commands not, nor obeys. Power, like a desolating pestilence, pollutes whate'er it touches; and obedience, bane of all genius, virtue, freedom, truth, makes slaves of men, and of the human frame a mechanized automaton."

P.B. Shelley

The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?

 

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

Which is a more widespread idea, fear of foreigners, or love of foreigners? I did some scientific in-depth research that produced sad results. Google “xenophobia” and you get exactly 3.6 million hits; Google the less well known “xenophilia” and you get just 115,000 hits. Worse, many of the latter sites concern romantic encounters with space aliens, which isn’t really what I had in mind. Fear of foreigners is clearly still a pressing issue, even though we’re all foreigners to most other people in the world.

Quote
"Turned wrong way round, the relentless unforeseen was what we schoolchildren studied as 'History,' harmless history, where everything unexpected in its own time is chronicled on the page as inevitable. The terror of the unforeseen is what the science of history hides, turning a disaster into an epic.”

 

-Philip Roth, The Plot Against America

In case anyone ever tells you it is only a rumor that Hasslehoff is popular in certain parts of central Europe:

Now you know they are lying.

Give me the eyes, so I see
Give me ears, so I hear
Give me love, so I know what love is
Give me freedom to think, to believe
In something
