Topic of the Week: What are your #Fave7Games?Topic of the Week: What are your #Fave7Games?
Ocid Avatar
I've got a solid 4 that are always on a list of top x games but the others are always dependent on mood/what i can think of at the time. So here's mine in no real order

Viva Pinata
Doom 1 & 2
Dwarf Fortress
Theme Hospital
Eve Online
Yoshi's Island
Diablo 2

I always want to stick Star Wars Galaxies (Pre-CU) on a list like this but after NGE I just can't.

Any time someone tries to tell you that Videogames cause violence, gently remind them that once upon a time in the 1800's every expert, leader, author and philosopher was *convinced* that a popular novel could make you commit suicide http://www.historytoday.com/frank-furedi/media%E2%80%99s-first-moral-panic

There's always been a scapegoat of sorts.


Rock music, graphic novels, written books etc. Video games just happens to be the latest one.

I've got a crazy idea. Bear with me for a second.

Don't like it. Don't buy it. Don't play it.

I don't go bitching to the makers of pizza or cereal because i can't eat it. I don't cry claiming having these on the shelf is discrimination to those of us with a lactose intolerance or celiac disease. I *gasp* just don't buy it and find something I can eat.

Sick of butthurt people. Harden the fuck up.Reply

Yeah, don't try to change things for the better, because if you do you might actually succeed, and then a bunch of babies will whine about it on the internet.


Speaking of hardening up, you guys are like friggin' eggshell princes over this shit.

How the deck is stacked against women in e-sportsHow the deck is stacked against women in e-sports
Ocid Avatar

There isn't as much coverage of women in e-sports because by the admission of the article and the player talking about it the caliber isn't as good. I don't know. Never watched it.


Compare it to something like football. More people watch the premiership than the first division because the quality of play is generally better.

Yes, I understand why there is less coverage. My point was that there is already a lot of coverage of men in esports, so Loxley shouldn't feel like nobody wants to hear about how he feels about toxicity in the games.
