Default Arguing the absolute toss about videogames

Let's try and genuinely annoy each other with completely spurious bullshit arguments. First one to get legit mad loses. I will definitely lose. OK you start.

No game should have an easy mode.

Oh, this one's easy. The answer lies in a previous madhair60 thread, even:

I think the placement and behavior of the robot fish in the first Sonic The Hedgehog game is reasonable.

Anyone who uses a strategy guide or FAQ to complete a game is robbing themselves of the true game experience.

Every Sonic game is bad. They all tell me to go fast and then punish me for going fast.

The representation of women in games is perfectly fine as it is.

They should stop making games that I am not personally interested in. I've invested a lot of time and money into this hobby over the years and these companies owe me big time.

Rock n Roll Racing is the alpha and omega of racing games. THEY GOT "BORN TO BE WILD" ON THE SOUNDTRACK.

I don't like the side quests in World of Warcraft. When do I get to beat the last boss and move on to playing a better game?

Super Metroid is over-rated. Bomb-jumping and Space Jump are both fiddly and tedious, it's too easy to get lost and not know how to progress, and there's a bunch of extra crap that most players will never see.

People only "like" Dark Souls because it strokes their egos and lets them feel like a Big Man.

Man, "Jawas in Traffic Cones" would be a great name for a Black Mages cover band.

All old adventure games with perma-death and missable items are complete bullshit, and anything from before LucasArts perfected the formula is best ignored.
