Maybe the "fanboys" should instead see dissenting opinions as an opportunity to really explain in-depth what makes their favorites what they are. Threads like these pass with a handful of people posting a cursory list with hardly any commentary, which generates even less direct replies. It's boring for everyone.

Critical thinking never hurt anyone.

What fanboys? The only person who said they liked the game really was Orgrit (butchered his name sorry) and hes been polite this whole conversation.

I got annoyed at people feeling obligated to complain when someone shares their interests, but I don't see how that makes me an FF7 fanboy when I really dont give a crap about ff7. You could take Ff7 completely out of the conversation and wed be having the same discussion.

Its not like people are making threads I LIKE THIS AND IT IS THE OBJECTIVE GOLD STANDARD FOR QUALITY. These threads are fluff, yes, but oh well. Besides the dissent is never really constructive either. It's just reciting the same rhetoric every time and I get tired of reading it.

Honestly if someone was questioning you every time you said you liked something and asking you to justify it, you cant possibly see that as annoying?

So tired of having to be the bad guy here...sigh.

Then just don't say anything.

I was talking about fanboys in general. Neither side is claiming an absolute. Yes, I would see justifying my opinion every time as annoying, BUT I wouldn't rage back with an overblown response. Like Bacardi says, just let it slide by sometimes.

Well it goes both ways. When you don't answer WHY, it's not that it generates less replies, but vagueness results in more argument. I'm not trying to single you out BB but you're response is a good example.

FF7 is overrated in every fucking way. That being said I was not impressed with 9's score either.

Without any explanation, this ends up as a sheer insult to those who appreciate the game. In BB's defense, karathrow was kinda doing personal attacks, but retorting by calling kara a rude jackass isn't exactly mature either.

Conclusion: Just explain your side and people will understand. Less arguments. More discussion. More civility.

I wouldn't say anything if people who shared your view did the same. I only repeatedly bring it up because you feel the need to repeatedly make it a point to criticize people for posting their likes in a thread asking what people like. The thread isn't "critique the previous posters likes". You can view it as that, and youre free to shit on peoples likes, but history has shown you to be very temperamental about criticism (dont know how else to say this without it coming off as an attack, but its true).

This is just going in circles now. You guys are literally blind to what youre doing and its just madness to try to reason with you. You come in with your negative nancy attitudes and then play the victim when someone calls you out on it.

I was definitely out of line in the comments I made earlier, but it's frustrating to see the same behavior over and over again. I'm not asking you to like ff7, I am asking you to respect other peoples opinions and not try to make people feel bad because theirs differs from yours.

Exactly, and while my means are probably counter to what Im pushing for, this is more or less what I'm saying. You really cant come into a casual/light hearted conversation tell people their interests are stupid and expect a civil conversation.

Like literally the first posts by both bacardi and art are totally inflamatory and really don't add anything. I don't see how you can call that "critical thinking".

For that matter why do we have to justify liking one specific thing. If everything you liked faced the same amount of scrutiny would it hold up? Would it get old?

I liked FF7. played it when it came out, I had no access to the internet world back then whatsoever so enjoyed it my own way, I can definetly see why it got so big. one thing I never got was the Aeris hype, I never had her in my party, not even once. In fact I think I raged when I was forced to take her in the cave/temple of the ancients lol.
how the hell did I go through the game without a healer.

anyways as far as top songs go...I'd have to say a huge fag for Persona 4. the music in that game is so chillax in general.

Random sidenote, random FF7 hate reminds me of Metalheads hating on Justin bieber lol, I guess it is normal to be hated for baseless reasons when you're popular. proves you're relevant and people will go out of their way to hate on you :v

Kara why is it so hard for you to skip over the FF7 dislike/hate posts? If you could do it for any other game, you can do it for that. If someone said they hated MY favorite game, which is Chrono Trigger, I would just shake my head and think they obviously have not played it. I don't give a shit if anyone likes it, it's me who puts in the time and effort to play it, and it's me who enjoys the game. I don't ask anyone else to play with me, nor do I have to. Opinions get stated, and you can just leave it at that. Nobody has to explain why they like or don't like something, there are no rules on the internet. Not only that but when you respond with such extreme anger, people see that instead of the point you are trying to get across. Anger breeds more anger, and within no time you have a full on forum argument that goes nowhere and upsets people.

The irony is yes a few times I have not understood why people said the things they have, but in this thread you are the one acting that way. At least I have an excuse - hormones XD

Why is it so hard for you to skip over FF7 like posts? If the thread was "what games do you find to be overrated piles of crap" I would find the responses appropriate but questoning why people like what they like as if there is something wrong with them is just shallow and childish.

If you could do it for any other game, you can do it for that. If someone said they hated MY favorite game, which is Chrono Trigger, I would just shake my head and think they obviously have not played it. I don't give a shit if anyone likes it, it's me who puts in the time and effort to play it, and it's me who enjoys the game. I don't ask anyone else to play with me, nor do I have to.

Not only that but when you respond with such extreme anger, people see that instead of the point you are trying to get across. Anger breeds more anger, and within no time you have a full on forum argument that goes nowhere and upsets people.

Again I was never saying anyone has to like anything. I'm not even questioning whether ff7 is overrated or the validity of you thinking it is. I'm questioning the wisdom of interjecting that you think something sucks just because someone else mentions they like it.

You can't seem to understand the point, I don't see why it's so hard to communicate here. The funny thing is your message is basically "shut up" in a polite way which was more or less what I was asking people to do. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all I guess.

Yes I was out of line with my comments but that is partially because you were pretty douchey about how you responded when I brought this up civilly in another thread. There's no indication that you're not going to continue doing it, and I don't have patience for people who go out of their way to annoy others.

No it's still not accurate because what bothered me was that Art questioned Oggirt for his opinion like there's something wrong with him for liking something Art doesn't.

As you can see, my first post wasn't in direct response, I was just agreeing with the first person who said it. Not really trying to discuss it, more like just sayin'.

You might have been saying "shut up"...but you were far from polite, which is why this thread has gone the way it has! And lol @ "If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all I guess." Practice what you preach!

So you assume I'm going to keep doing it, so you talk to me like shit and be an ass to me? Hm.

I think you're being a bit dramatic. People should be policing themselves, it's just common sense. We're a small community and while we all lol @ friendly poking or trolling it's kind of silly to resort to "lol internet" behavior with how few of us there are around here. Especially when it's to a new member who's trying to fit in.

If things were so bad that we had to use mod power in this then there would be no point in these forums at all. We're all adults (or those of us underage can conduct ourselves as one) I don't feel guilty for expecting people to act that way.

At any rate even I felt people were out of line I shouldnt have responded the way I did. My bad guys.
