Title: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: Yugi on July 04, 2013, 04:59:31 AM
We all hold opinions that tend to clash with the general public, or at least those around you. So post 'em, and maybe you'll find that some your opinions aren't so unpopular after all!

While I can't say I agree with you losing interest in Melancholy, I also hated the Hobbit and never thought PewDiePie was all that special.

Also, I have no reason to think that Melee was better than Brawl.
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: Echo on July 04, 2013, 05:28:06 AM
I think Brawl being better than Melee is the more popular opinion, actually.

That being said, my unpopular opinion would be that Melee's better than Brawl. >_>
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: MaestroUGC on July 04, 2013, 05:33:49 AM
Most people say Melee is better than Brawl because its a much faster and tighter game. Brawl is very floaty in comparison.

^ They are taking the Transformers movies WAY to far. The first one was interesting, had a good plot, and had a fair amount of action (not too much). Second one, meh. Third one, meh. NOW a fourth one is coming out. I honestly think it should have been kept as a single film.

Brawl was much better than Melee, in my opinion. Plus, the cut scenes were pretty epic. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKHQXuXE8qc)

I don't see what's so special about Kingdom Hearts.
I hated The Avengers and the other Marvel movies.
I think New Super Mario Bros. is a great series.
I hate Tom Cruise.
I think Hans Zimmer, while certainly serviceable, is one of the worst film composers in modern music.

What, brawl gets boring after a month of playing. I'm still going to melee tournaments to play, there's so much depth to the game (wave dashing, l canceling, ect.)

As for me:

- Disel fuel smells good.
- The first level of FF7 is too hard. :(

That's all I can think of at the moment.

-Cod is too repetitive and boring (oh wait...)

^1. Agree
2. I always play as Koopa in MK7
3. Never played but has to be better than JFA
4. Don't care about FPS's.
5. ?
6. "O, Canada" is.
7. Depends.

Also forgot
-I think Ratatouille is easily the best Pixar movie
-I liked the Gen V Pokemon games better than Diamond and Pearl, including the Pokemon themselves.

Kinda same here, or at least I love good thrillers & horror movies. I love it when there's something mysterious going on and when the movie shows that things aren't as they first appeared. A good example is Shutter Island. One of the best movie ever imo is Enemy of the State, sure it's not so mysterious but it's very clever and simply a really exciting thriller.

3. Never played but has to be better than JFA

Uh, I really suggest you play AJ before saying this. Because to me, JFA made up for it because of these two reasons:
- the last case is one of the best cases ever
- Pearl

AJ on the other hand has a cool first case, but then goes downhill throughout. The soundtrack's really good, at least.

Oh, and for a couple of other unpopular opinions:
- MegaMan.EXE (Battle Network) is best MegaMan
- Applejack is best pony

Er, that doesn't mean he's asexual. Just aromantic. Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction. You can still like boys/girls, but you just don't want sex. Not being interested in girls or boys at all generally means aromanticism, where you just don't desire a relationship at all.

When I saw the champion of Black 2, I was like, okay bud, go get Alder. Then the battle starts and I'm like: "Wait, what?!" In my opinion she's too young to be a champion. Barely old enough to know what she's doing.

What happened to kids becoming trainers at the age of 10? You can't just go ahead and have 10-year-old champions...

Because it's not like the champion of Red/Blue was a kid either or anything. >_>

I found Black 2's champ to be refreshing, because the champion's on more equal grounds with the player character. The champ's not some mentor-type character who ends up guiding you to overcome them, but rather someone young and ambitious, seeking to be the best themselves instead of just looking out for the next generation of great battlers.

but lolis make everything better

Also, this. Better than having Benga as champ, at least.

Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 06, 2013, 01:05:00 AM
Exactly. I totally understand it being your "least favorite" because there are only 100 Pokemon and the game is remarkably linear. But I cannot understand anyone "disliking" it while claiming to love the other Pokemon games, since it's just more of the same.

Loool I took a course on modern art and I think modern artists are just trolls. Modern art is what came up after they thought they needed to redefine art after photography (capturing realistic images) was invented. The other thing I got out of the class was that it's mostly hype. Get a rich person to buy your modern art and it's modern art...

Bingo. I found the game soooo boring, and it's so confusing, and they make it on purpose, it's immensely stupid! When I started playing FF XIII-2 I just thought "Yey, more of the same... Nope." and I turned off my Xbox and never played the game again...

I think that OOT is a bit over-rated. The game is really cool of course, but saying that is the best game of all time, not even a bit... Majora's Mask is so weird and strangely scary. I have a strange relationship with that game, I don't think it's the best Zelda game and not even my favorite, but in the other hand, it's so unique and attractive, I always want to play it. But that moon, it scares the hell out of me.
I just played Wind Waker 3 or 4 times, for about 50 minutes each, and I found it quite boring.. I just like the epic Zeldas... :/

Solution to your problem, the book called "The Fundamentals of Piano Practice". The author recommends something called parallell sets to achieve speed quickly and slow play to improve the movements etc. you use to play fast. He writes specifically about what is wrong with Hanon (quite many valid reasons, such as waste of time (better learn real pieces). But it's filled with technique, it includes all sort of things such as hand motions, relaxation, playing scales (thumb under vs thumb over), memorization (mental play) and so on and so on.

It's on the N64, Game Cube (in the collector's edition), and Wii Virtual Console. It's also been pushed as a 3DS remake, but they're obviously going to finish Link Between Worlds before definitively deciding where to go with Zelda next. It's a very unorthodox Zelda game, but the side quests are a much bigger part of the game than Ocarina, and time-based events are fun to discover. It's not as annoying as you would think having to reset the three days.

I have never felt as if I lost anything significant by being forced to reset time. You just have to make sure you can easily warp to a dungeon and then start it at the dawn of the first day.

For the events, if you talk to somebody and they're added to your notebook, you can automatically see when important things happen. Just not what they are. In my opinion, that makes it easy to find while not giving away what's going to happen at those moments.

Ninja'd: I suppose it is becoming "collectible" now. If you still have a Wii (I guess not, but worth mentioning), the standard rate for an N64 game is $10.

I recently bought a Nintendo 64, and I wanted to buy MM, but it costs at least 25€, and is the Expansion pack also needed, and it's also expensive...

You can get it for about $20 on ebay. That's where I ended up buying it.

Never could get into MM, though. I found the time limit to be annoying and unfitting for a Zelda game. Same for the sidequests, which I'm pretty sure make up at least half of the gameplay.

Generally the collector's edition is above $100 on ebay I was looking at the brand new tab. Still though, even the lowest are gonna get pretty high after a few days. You can buy the case without the disc for about $10 though. Yay box art!

I was slightly off.

Bubbles, Wind Waker is fantastic.  Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.  I actually don't have a favorite, but imo the best are A Link to the Past, Link's Awakening, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and Skyward Sword.  Beyond that it's just preference.

MM though...... holy cow.  Don't wait for an unlikely 3DS remake.  Just figure out a way to get it.  It will blow your mind.

Running emulators beyond the N64 is more of a problem with the emulator than computer speed. They're okay, but keyboard controls for games specifically designed for controllers don't work out too well. Some of the MM rooms would be frustrating without a controller.

I only emulate games that are next to impossible for me to legitimately play. Like Pokemon Emerald, for example. I don't have any sort of Gameboy, and I don't really value getting one.
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: ALPRAS on August 23, 2013, 12:06:57 AM

Perfectly understandable! But if you think about it, Nintendo (and the developers that developed games for Nintendo 64 in this case) will never lose profit by emulating a N64 emulator, since the console and its games are not for sale anymore, except in the 2nd hand market, which 0% of the money goes to Nintendo/developers, so by not emulating that console, you aren't giving to taking any money from them! :)
About Gamecube, Wii, etc, well, thats kinda different, since there are still games from those consoles for sale in some specific countries...
Anyway, I've bought a Nintendo 64 in the other day, since I always wanted one! And because I wanted to play Banjo Kazooie and Zelda OOT and MM in the original controller and in the original console :)

And about the controls, thats why I have a controller for pc, way more easier that way!

The main problem with N64 emulators and games for them is the quality. There is always something that messes things up, in Goldeneye the textures get blurry and some disappear or get funny colors. In Banjo Kazooie it goes black if you dive. In Donkey Kong 64 I don't remember what it was but it wasn't possible to play it properly and so on. A notable exception is Super Mario 64 which always seems to work pretty smoothly (although the sound can disappear sometimes). As for sales, Nintendo does sell some N64 games in virtual console so at least in some cases there is no excuse to use emulators because of lack of availability or no profits due to the second hand market.

I have always thought it annoying when women ask for social equality or unbiased job applications because they feel as if they've been held down, but almost expect chivalry or something of the sort (opening doors and stepping back, putting the toilet seat down, etc...). Obviously I'm not talking about all women, or even necessarily the majority, but the extremist idealists that seem to be working for an upper hand in society are rarely questioned.

I have nothing against women, I just think this whole equality thing was gone about wrongly.

Did you know in this country there's still no such thing as paid maternity leave? (There's unpaid leave though, but a baby still can't even learn to sit up at the end of 12 weeks) Or how women don't get hired for a job because their employers think they'd leave after getting pregnant and there's no point letting them start a career? And how women still earn less than men for the same work? Or how women suffer harrassment at work and more women are killed by domestic violence in the US alone (from their boyfriends/husbands) than soldiers killed in since Bush declared war in the Middle East? Also let's not get into how women in some countries are targeted in those acid-throwing attacks by men who want to ruin their lives.

but almost expect chivalry or something of the sort (opening doors and stepping back, putting the toilet seat down, etc...)

I don't need anyone to hold the door for me or put down the toilet seat but it would be nice to make sure the toilet seat's clean before you leave. Lol.

Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: Zunawe on September 05, 2013, 03:13:30 AM
I almost chose not to post that because I was afraid of this. I suppose it probably makes my post seem more ignorant, but I was speaking from only my own experience, and not making an argument against the whole country or even world's way of going about it. Heck, I've never listened to a political debate or speech unless I was required to. I understand that there are countries in which women are devalued drastically, and I'm not saying that shouldn't be changed. What I think the video Ricky posted was saying is that the problems of women are emphasized and pushed to the front because they're women, the gender that has been historically undervalued.

I'm not saying that every single woman asks for chivalry. I'm saying that there are people that do, and they annoy me.

They take the feminism and turn it into a way to gain an upper hand, generally using guilt over embarrassing historical events by saying "Is it because I'm a girl?" or something like that.

Maybe I emphasized the wrong parts of my argument. I'm not arguing against the equality of the genders, I'm stating my irritation with people who take advantage of it.

this:
Proper feminism actually focuses on equality for all. It's the extremists who believe otherwise.

And unfortunately, it's the extremists that get heard the most.
feminism actually means "the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men."

gender equality. anyone who says feminism is about women > men have the wrong definition of feminism, probably due to the extremists (misandrists) who incorrectly label themselves as feminists.

Misandrist as in hater of men. Apparently that word isn't on chrome's dictionary...
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: Ricky on September 05, 2013, 02:20:10 PM
 @Jub3r7, I suppose you didn't really watch the video. The issue is not caused just by a few extremist women but by our current society. Things like prostate cancer research (even though prostate cancer is more common) don't get nowhere as much funding or media attention as breast cancer research. That's just one example. And besides feminism should be both renamed (to gender equality or something like that) to get rid of the "fem" and focus on both male and female issues.

The guy in the video doesn't convince me of much. Just another angry MRA >__>

nsfw, comment on one of his arguments:

Spoiler
There's actually medical reasons why men are circumsized (it reduces the transmission of some diseases, makes it easier to clean *cough*, and it's possible for foreskins to get infected), not that it means I think they should all have to. There is no reason why women should be. The cultures that practice female circumcision do it to make sex/childbirth hurt like crazy and to stop them from being aroused.
[close]

The video mentions an edit about the funding question for prostate and breast cancer issue. Breast cancer gets more attention partially because women raise more public awareness about it, but also breast cancer tends to be more aggressive than prostate cancer and is not as easily/safely diagnosed. I've never seen anyone hand out leaflets in the park about the seriousness of prostate cancer, etc.

I have no idea why those commercials he shows are funny. Maybe they're just playing on male stereotypes? Although I don't see women as the joke in advertisements. Younger girls are, though.

Domestic abuse issue: While it's probably more common than I think, men are less likely to be killed or injured by the spouse in domestic disputes.

The other stuff that guy didn't bring up but I think should be changed!
-Giving men (paid) leave from work when they have children
-Stop "blaming it on the man" in family disputes
-Stop teaching girls and boys that boys can't control their lust (this is mostly for religious and conservative people) as an excuse for girls not to wear this, or do that...ehhh...slut shaming.

I don't thinks he's an MRA. In the regard of gender equality he's pretty sane as he sees issues on both sides and obviously has noticed how issues on the male side tend to be ignored.

- Male circumcision shouldn't be done unless the male is adult and can decide himself. Putting babies at such medical risk and removing a part of their body should be strictly forbidden unless it somehow can save their lives (which I doubt but I don't know alot on the topic).
- Well, maybe prostate cancer isn't as dangerous etc. but it's more common and overall gets too little funding.
- Advertisement is advertisement, it likes to play on stereotypes. Feminism sees much advertisement as not "politically correct". They also generally dislike how women are portrayed in movies, video games etc. but it's pretty silly in the end. So he might have given advertising too much focus in his video but it at least portrays that advertisers play on the stereotypes of both genders.
- The problem is domestic abuse against men isn't taken seriously. Just watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlFAd4YdQks
- I agree with the other issues you listed. Another issue, at least in Sweden and Britain, females are getting advantages in the work place to make things more "equal" by hiring females because they are females, not because of the skills the person has or doesn't have for the work position. Watch this to see what I mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaU8b0MO2rU . The older (compared with the other) woman in the debate with the program leaders has some sane things to say about this work place situation while the younger is an obvious radical feminism and thinks women should get certain jobs just because they are women. Also, father's rights compared with mother's rights is another issue.


I know, I know, there is feminism and there is also men's right movement and both have their points and share of good people but I've seen major flaws on both sides. The main issue is that any ideology is flawed because people get blinded by the ideology and don't consider what's good for others outside the ideology but rather focus on what's good for them or their ideology. When you are bound to an ideology you don't see the World for what it is, you see the World for how you want to see it. Since we are on the topic of gender equality and feminism lets take a few examples from feminism: A more or less extreme feminist might (I've heard of such examples) for example:
- Blame gender inequalities on an imaginary partiarchy or even worse, on "rape culture", insulting not only women, men but first and foremost actual rape victims (by making including lots of trivial things into their definition of "rape culture"). For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geQyrBGS_60
- Ignore any biologically proven gender differences such as difference in strength or ability to do well in sports etc. Instead they blame it all on social constructs.
- Hating men, wanting female supremacy, ignoring or even protesting against the idea of males being discriminated too. For example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvYyGTmcP80
- A worldview in which everything seems to be sexist against women.



And finally by making something called gender equality or something like that it would accomplish two important things:

- Getting rid of the extremists on both side of the gender "debate" and making the debate more sane.
- Making society realize that there are issues of discrimination on both sides and if we want gender equality we have to approach it from both sides simultaneously.

In general I've been thinking this thought: If there's discrimination in one direction there's often discrimination in the other direction too.

I heard cirumcision is more common in America so I'm not really sure what every other country does. I guess it's seen as more of a prevention thing and makes it less awkward for a few things later >_> (Go ask your mother) Isn't it going to be harder to convince some guy to do that to himself when he's older?

Hahaha from experience women are a lot less likely to laugh at themselves, and more likely to think something isn't funny.

- The problem is domestic abuse against men isn't taken seriously.
Agreed but violence against women is still way more common. Definitely more publicized too...

- I agree with the other issues you listed. Another issue, at least in Sweden and Britain, females are getting advantages in the work place to make things more "equal" by hiring females because they are females, not because of the skills the person has or doesn't have for the work position.

Yeah I've heard people say this too. Oddly in America, hiring or accepting minority students to schools is acceptable to "bring diversity" into the group. In college though, a lot of schools try to bring their student populations close to 50% men and 50% women, but in reality the schools I've been to is more like 40% men and 60% women. Turning down better qualified women to get numbers closer to 50/50 is starting to happen more. Can't tell you what it's like in the workplace yet, but an advantage from being a woman in college doesn't really exist here.

- Blame gender inequalities on an imaginary partiarchy or even worse, on "rape culture", insulting not only women, men but first and foremost actual rape victims (by making including lots of trivial things into their definition of "rape culture").

Ricky, I think you're spending too much time on Tumblr.  You can't generalise an entire group for the actions of a few.  It's like saying every Muslim is a terrorist.  It's a ludicrous notion sustained by the availability heuristic.  Have you met many feminists?  There are certainly extremists, but that's no surprise; extremists will exist in every group.  Although I sympathise with some of your points (eg. biological differences, manifesto of the existence of a patriarchy and rape culture, etc.), I think you're forsaking the idea that feminism is working for equal gender rights.  If someone believes that women are superior to men, that's not feminism, and anyone labeling himself/herself as such is pseudo.

Although some of us aren't feminists in the more official sense (with official cards for the organisations or whatever), most people you've met are probably feminists!  I'm a feminist, Ruto's a feminist, and I would say virtually everyone on this forum is a feminist!  So it's odd that there are still so many difficulties faced by women in regard to civil rights and social circumstances, considering that the number of people who support equal gender rights is so large.  And to be honest, women's rights movements are something that have been going on for a few centuries in America (and I'm certain, also, in other parts of the world), before we became the USA even!  And I find it dubious that most women are out to one-up men, because I don't think that self-righteousness is a trait that characterises most women; women have been leaders in nearly every social movement ever; abolitionism, temperance, civil rights, tolerance of sexual orientation, etc.  Not to say that men don't support good things, but women have tended to be very active social contributors!  To be honest, if anything, they may not have been paying enough attention to their own rights in the past (though, I imagine a good deal of women may have been fine with the status quo back then.  But it's a liberal time now, so things have changed!).

I do concur with you that there is some discrimination towards men.  I remember reading a few that I thought were frivolous when studying such things in Government.  I actually personally think that some discrimination is necessary to make up for biological differences (eg. I support drafting men and having women volunteer, because men tend to be physically stronger and I think war is an environment that men may handle emotionally a bit better than women, no offense to women though!!!  And I would imagine most men to agree with the idea too).  I'm conflicted on my stance for a paternal leave, for example, but I definitely support a maternal leave.
But anyway, despite their being discrimination on both sides, there is definitely way more discrimination against women.  That's rather undeniable.  Maybe people like us don't see it because we socialise with a good crowd of people, but the world is a big place!  There's plenty of good and bad everywhere, we just don't see it much.


So I think there's been a misunderstanding on what exactly feminism is.  Feminism isn't what a pseudo-feminist radical is spouting.  Feminism is equality between genders.  And that's all there is to it!


tl;dr: Girls can turn into Magical Girls.  They are awesome.

I didn't read the book, so I judged the two movies based on which one I thought was better as a movie, rather than how faithfully I thought they adapted the book (for reasons stated earlier).
That being said, I still think the movie (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) had some interesting aspects to it.


...while browsing on Wikipedia for some more information on the film, I found this interesting tidbit.
Quote from: Wikipedia
Scott Frank was hired to write the screenplay in February 1999 with the intention of making it closer to the book, in contrast to the 1971 film. Nicolas Cage was under discussions for Willy Wonka, but lost interest.

Actually, he is pretty offensively bad, but he has toned it down in recent months. I just hate how it's not about the games, it's about him. He doesn't focus on the game he's playing it and celebrating it like most other LPers and gamers who do this sort of thing, for him it's just background noise while he screams like an idiot. I doubt he cares about what he's playing, and you could probably mix-and-match his commentary and gameplay and there would be no difference.

Calculus is what happens when you decide to make Mathematics actually useful.  Most Mathematics that's learnt prior to Calculus relates to static objects; as in, no dynamic movement occurring.  Calculus is the study of change.  To give an example of what I mean by static and dynamic; if I asked what distance a car travelled if it ran for 5 seconds at 30 m/s, would you be able to calculate it?  Now what if the car was accelerated at 2m/s^2 originally and if the acceleration was increasing 2/ms^3?  Basic Maths isn't helpful anymore despite this being a reasonable situation.

What I find hilarious though, is that Calculus itself is pretty much based on finding slopes, when it's broken down, but yet it's so complicated.

Honestly though, nearly all Maths prior to Calculus is useless unless something rudimentary is performed (like averaging or statistics (which technically requires Calculus, even though it's not mentioned in most classes)).  The only subject even less useful that I've found is likely General Biology, especially when taught in a classroom setting.  Pointless rote memorisation that has absolutely no use or application on its own, because everything is too general, as the name states.  Not to say that Biology as a field is useless, but topics only become applicable upon specialisation.

Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: MaestroUGC on October 13, 2013, 05:50:50 AM
Tchaikovsky stands as one of the most emotional composers I've ever heard, and he worked in an era were emotion was king.

Russians in general tend to leave everything on the table in the arts (excluding that blotch of an era known as Communism, though there are wonderul exceptions), resulting in very raw and personal experiences in their music.

He is, by no means, an unpopular composer, with a vast amount of his works making their way into pop culture one way or another. Hell, the Nutcracker is Christmas music
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!

He famously hated his nutcracker music, which only shows how powerful his other stuff was. Though honestly my favorite classical composers are Beethoven and Chopin.
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: MaestroUGC on October 13, 2013, 05:55:47 AM
He mainly hated it because it tended to overshadow his other music (which is a common complaint with composers. See: Holst and The Planets).

I feel as if this discussion should be held elsewhere...

Post by: KefkaticFanatic on October 13, 2013, 09:12:01 AM
I can't really give myself a favorite composer, because there are various pieces that I adore from many different composers.  Like one that nobody ever hears of is Gabriel Pierne who has a fantastic piano concerto that reminds me of all the Rachmaninoff ones I love.  That piece I would put in my list of favorites, but some of his other work I just enjoy listening to, not at quite at a "favorite" level.

You can find people who are horrible at any instrument, but that doesn't make it any less musical. I don't see you calling piano "not good enough to be a musical instrument", even though people are equally as impressed with people who can play/sing along to chord changes on it (if not more so).

First of all, I think the main problem is that you're assuming that "musical instrument" is a subjective term. It is not. It is a defined term with defined characteristics. Second, if an instrument being widespread and common makes it not a musical instrument, again, we're gonna have to exclude piano, as well.

Would really call nails on a chalk board, music?

No, but I would call what is arguably the most stylistically versatile harmonic instrument music. Either your opinion is far too rigid on this, or your listening far too limited. Go listen to some classical guitar. Some jazz solos. Some good rock.

you conservatives isolating me from you other musicians just because i play the nail on the chalkboard!!!  >:(

when will this discrimination end???



Anyway, Clanker37, although I can understand your perspective, I have to concur with the majority that the guitar is an instrument!  The guitar has had a bad reputation since its inception, having been considered a 'bar instrument' that was, evidently, played solely in bars.  But doesn't change that it is a legitimate musical instrument.

Looking up the term in Oxford English Dictionary:
"an object or device for producing musical sounds."

And by this logic, a guitar is as much of an instrument as a flute or synthesiser is.  Perhaps the idea of 'musical sounds' may be subjective, but I think Olimar12345's audible art approach is probably the best definition of what music is; it's what you make of it and so nearly anything can be considered a musical instrument in that regard.  We could have the spoon on the glass cup, the sonar waves reflecting back from the ocean floor with an audible frequency, the textbooks falling from the desk!  Possibilities are endless!!!

Guitar is a very nice instrument when handled well, and always has been. It is an instrument. Probably one of the first conceived. However, a stereotype of guitarists has emerged, as in every other type of instrument, where the player seems egotistical or something along those lines. We have guitar classes at my school, and few things are more annoying when walking the halls as finding some other guy obtrusively playing the same 8 chords or boring ostinato. Guitars aren't bad. People who play guitar to be "cool" are annoying.

So, in order to voice my dis-contempt, I consider it not an instrument, so that people understand the severity of my hatred.

But...I honestly just want to know at this point where this hate comes from. Provide some examples of pieces where guitar is so awful to you. Because unless you somehow have a VERY SPECIFIC form of amusia, it seems to me that it comes from the fact that you've generated a stereotype in your head (based at least partially on your frustration with the people who do receive praise without having any talent) and have conformed all guitar music to that stereotype. Because, as I've said, guitar is an EXTREMELY versatile instrument. There are so ridiculously many varieties of timbre that you can achieve with different forms of guitars, different styles of playing, etc., that I truly doubt that your hatred for guitar comes from a specific amusia concerning the specific patterns of overtones present in ALL of those variations.

Also, dis-contempt is not a word :P If it were, it would mean either a lack of contempt (i.e. lack of hatred), or the opposite of contempt. The word you are looking for is "discontent", haha

I guess some instruments have that effect on people.  Like how I feel about bagpipes, otherwise known as the Voice of the Devil.

I honestly kinda like bagpipes (in certain cases), but they do have a reallllly specific function in comparison, and a very limited variety of sounds. Plus, it's very rarely used outside of niche music, so that's kind of understandable. I think of it the way that I think of quarter tone music; it's more of a specific cultural thing, which, if you grow up without constant exposure to such a different approach to music, it's more difficult to appreciate.

There are so ridiculously many varieties of timbre that you can achieve with different forms of guitars, different styles of playing, etc., that I truly doubt that your hatred for guitar comes from a specific amusia concerning the specific patterns of overtones present in ALL of those variations.
I think it comes from being inflicted with music that I'm expected to like. My sister and family always put on the popular music of the day and of course it featured the guitar. I hated it. Not only had I created a stereotype where any male who liked music was clearly gay (and gay equaled bad. Well that worked out >_>), but also I resented the fact that I was expected to like their music. For a long time I didn't have a favorite taste nor listened to music. Then of course I discovered VG music on the internet as well as instrumental music and fell in love. Of course I'd share my music with them, but they would say they hated it. They still do. IDC.

So at one point of course they asked why I disliked their music. I couldn't justify my hated of it. I remembered my mum once (jokingly) calling a guitar not an instrument. So I took that and it manifested into what it is today. Of course the fact that most guitarists are obnoxious arseholes solidifies my disgust for the instrument.

That's my theory anyway.

BTW the bagpipes are awesome lol

Lets just go throught this nice and punct-wise: (I am gonna mis-spell "require" soo much...)

A guitar is a musical instrument, because a musical instrument is defined as "a device that makes musical sounds". Music is defined as "organized sound", so a guitar is most definately a musical instrument.

It is ok to have your own opinions, but to say that a guitar isn't a musical instrument is wrong any way you look at it.

Saying that an instrument needs to requier skill to be an instrument is not correct either, and most importantly; saying that playing the guitar doesn't requeri skill shows that you think too narrowmindedly about it. I guess you're thinking about how you can just pick up a guitar and play just as nice as all the lame singer-songwriters can, but you know what - I can guaratee you that you are just really inexperienced with the world of the guitar:
I take guitar as my "chords"-subject, and eventhough I've been playing the guitar for years, I had never heard about the "jazz-chords" (it's probably something else in english), which is a jazz guitar term for the "universal" ways of gripping specific strings 'n stuff for each root, and also ways of seeing how it's all connected in the laws of harmony 'n shit - that's hard! (no don't think you can imagine how hard it is). That's not just "gripping a chord and strumming", it's much wilder than that.

When you say that every one who plays the guitar doesn't have any skill, I assume you're talking about simple chords that everyone learned in like 8th grade that only requers strumming. Too bad Dusk's composition-links no longer work, or else you could've seen for yourself how there is a bigger world to the guitar-music than that (I'm too lazy to search up something...).

My point is this: You do requer skill to play that amazing rock solo, those rapidly changing jazz chords, that melody-at-the-same-time-as-the-chords-thing, and that technique-show-off classical piece. I know you can't do it, obviously.

You're saying that the guitar sounds bad, but you also only say that when "someone" plays it - and yes, those un-musical people who only like the guitar because it's a fascinating soundmaschine for them, yes they can't play the guitar, and whatever they do on it is horrible, but THAT IS THE CASE WITH ANY INSTRUMENT. It's just that not flippin' everyone has a violin or a saxophone or a piano lying around in the attic, so we're spared from hearing those instruments being raped all the time, but it would be just as bad if you gave an un-musical eight grader a trumpet.

But if you can play the guitar it's great!
Having an acoustic guitar playing an eight bar solo-melody in a big band bossa nova piece (just a random example), that would be really nice, if the melody was nice, and if it was played correctly (like with every other instrument ever).

A "guitar" is one of the most universal instruments there are.
As a chord playing instrument it is one of the most used, and one of the most ideal instruments to do so - piano is obviously superior(imo!), but what else is there besides that? not much. accordion perhaps...
As a solo instrument used in classical music, it requiers skill in most cases, and can be quite beautiful to listen to - I went to a classical guitar concert today at my school, and it was very good!

There are a lot of bad guitar players in the world (definately more of those than bad harp players), but the instrument is like every other instrument.
Lets trust my ethos for a sec (as I play both the guitar and the saxophone (among others)); I can tell you that there are some things that are way way way harder to do on the guitar than on the sax - I'm mainly referring to the consciousness of which note is where (a lot of strings you know) - can you really play any melody right off the sheet when it comes to the guitar? 'Cause guitarists sure can't (in most cases) - of course, jazz and classical guitarists (that are good) can to some degree, but there is ALWAYS a clear limit to it (which I'm gonna admit that there almost isn't on the sax).
So skill is required if you are gonna be a good guitarist.

And sorry if I was being mean saying that Clanker was insane, I was merely trying to express my reaction through a slightly humorous/drastic way of speaking.

----------------
Most recordings I've heard of bagpipes (when playing together) are so out of tune that it's crazy anyone would ever wan't to play or listen too it.
But there is a bagpipeist at my school (it's a music high school), and when he's playing it's great.

Jompa... ;_;

OK, OK, OK I submit. I suppose a guitar played by a true musician with a catchy rhythm and marvelous melody could, maybe, possibly, be an scrape the title of musical instrument. I still don't like it, but I could learn to live with it. Maybe.

Also, don't apologize for calling me insane. I'm glad someone finally noticed. (If you knew half the stuff that my brain comes up with...)

On a side-note though, why is it, that when I enter these discussions on NSM that I always end up agreeing with my opposition? It makes me feel weak.

The problem is that society will label someone who can sing along with chord progressions on a guitar as a musical genius. >_>

Oh yeah, so this sort of thing happened again today in my math class.  I was playing the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 on the piano there, you know, being all awesome... then these girls from another class just come in, push me our of the chair, and start playing some retarded-ass song with the same chords being repeated over and over again in quarter note rhythms (there was supposed to be singing too but no one knew how to sing). All of a sudden everyone's yelling...

"Oh my God you guys are so good!" "You should teach me how to play the piano like that!" "Where'd you learn to play like that?"

bunch of grinches without childhoods up in here

Jk, I can kinda understand the "tired of hearing this shit" thing. I still love christmas music though :D

But I actually only just recently discovered the Michael Buble christmas album, and I love it. Especially his frosty the snowman arrangement (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV5kyETu1U4&list=PLY9HR7YT_3Kku9LUAf8Z2XIYQj0iGfqHS). It reminds me a lot of magic flea by Sammy Nestico (and count basie and his orchestra, of course :P).

The rest of it's all just really nostalgic for me. Which, while I rant against the notion that it's a factor in determining the quality of anything, still plays a huge role in my enjoyment of it :D hell, half of the point of christmas to me is the nostalgia. Without that, to me, the idea of people spending money on gifts for each other that, all things considered, could have been better decided on by the person receiving it, seems rather absurd. Without abstract concepts like nostalgia and the "spirit of giving", christmas is just a really inefficient way of exchanging money.

...Oh, nobody was even talking about the meaning of christmas? I'll just go, then...

Okay, so, Olaf from Frozen was just really annoying.

Also, here comes a music opinion that I know will seem really unprofessional and uneducated - The voice trill that singers do in opera and some choral songs, I don't like it. I understand that it takes a lot of talent to pull it off at all, but since it's alternating between two notes really fast, one of the two notes clashes with all the others and it just sounds bad. While I do appreciate the ability required to perform said technique, I have trouble appreciating the dissonance it causes with all the other notes.

Perhaps it is something on a platform not easily accessible to them (old) or that they don't own, or perhaps it's some import game they are very unlikely to get their hands on.  Or maybe some people actually enjoy things you dislike.

Or perhaps there is no merit to such saying as the experience is quite different in playing a game vs just observing, and in any case making such content only increases exposure and potential popularity of a title.  It's not some evil keels the poor dev thing.

A witty one, aren't you?

I love Let's Plays but they do kind of take the fun out of playing the games for the first time. I usually only watch them if I've played the games before and want to hear someone's commentary on it or use it as a guide to 100% a game I'm currently playing.

Some dramas are pretty coll. Some are meh though, usually because they overblow it or the plot/characters/dialogue suck, since I feel those are the three key elements to making any drama(or any story for that matter) good.
A witty one, aren't you? But seriously, saying someone shouldn't be able to watch a let's play because they can't afford a game is like saying someone shouldn't be able to watch a sporting event because they can't afford to join a club or league. It's absolutely ridiculous. It's not even something worth wasting the energy of having a stance on because it's so inconsequential, really.

LOL. THAT IS NOT AT ALL WHAT ITS LIKE.

You really are stupid if you don't understand why I think game developers deserve money for their work. Your sports analogy is so terrible it's hilarious.

It should be the LPers paying developers for using their work since they're the only ones making money off of it(along with video hosting sites). Yes, game developers deserve money for their work, but it should be from people like PewdiePie and the Gamegrumps, who are raking in the cash and not paying royalties for it.

Some people simply don't have the money to pay for useless shit like video games, so they watch LPers. Get your head out your ass and get over it.

"It's like saying someone shouldn't be able to watch a sporting event because they can't afford cable/internet/whatever."

~A better example of that kind of sports analogy.
I'd say the best analogy would be:
"It's like saying someone shouldn't be able to watch a sporting event because they can't afford tickets to the game."
Reasons being: cable/internet/whatever is only the medium in which to view the event. The event itself is comparable to the video game that is being played.

Also, I'm not sure how I feel about LPs. I think, if the person is entertaining enough (hint hint), then they're fun to watch, or if you're not even going to buy the game (or can't afford it)... but usually, I don't bother with them (I've seen a few Game Grumps episodes, some of Maestro's, and one-or-so of Chuggaaconroy's, for example).

But I buy secondhand games all the time so the developers aren't getting anything from that.
That's where the debate over whether used games should be unusable or not came from (and needless to say, people were not happy, as evidenced by the original backlash against the Xbox One).

LPs without commentary are boring, and I don't think people can make money off of them. LPs with some sort of dialogue are technically their own product because they provide something like a review of a game, and are therefore independent from the product of the game (i.e. TheSunlightBlade on Dark Souls). People who play games to show their reactions aren't making money off the game, but rather using it as a medium for entertainment (i.e. SeaNanners on Garry's Mod). As an analogy, the people who make the paper for books don't make money from the sale of a book.

From that, I would say that LPs that have something other than gameplay such as commentary should be treated as a form of entertainment in which the game is not the primary focus. In other words, people don't watch PewDiePie for the games he plays. They watch him for the way he interacts with them. Because of that, I don't think it's fair to say that people shouldn't watch LPers because it's better to play the game yourself.

Anyway, we should turn this away from the ragefest it seems to have become...

LPers basically act as commenters much in the vein of MST3K, and while it's not wrong to make money in that regard, a decent amount should be going to either the people who made it or owns the copyrights on it.

Post by: Roz~ on February 11, 2014, 04:56:27 AM
As long as I can play competitively I don't really mind. There are cool pokemon designs every gens (Chandelure/Virizion in gen V, Trevenant in gen VI, etc) and the story usually is enjoyable, even if it's not that complex and cheesy most of the time.
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: FierceDeity on February 11, 2014, 05:03:24 AM
I thought the high point of gen V was the level of depth that they gave to the antagonists, and I wish they'd continued that in X/Y, but nope. I preferred X/Y for most other aspects of the game, though.

As for the pokemon themselves, I try not to judge the games based on that, seeing as that's pretty subjective (yet all that genwunners/antigenwunners seem to talk about), but if I had to decide, I'd say I like X/Y's better.
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!

Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: FierceDeity on February 11, 2014, 05:09:34 AM
I honestly can't say; it's really hard to codify the criteria for what makes a good Pokemon design. Most descriptions would go along the lines of "I think that one looks cool/cute/whatever", haha.

Although I do agree, not too fond of Fennekin's evolutions.

For me, I'd say that there aren't really very many Pokémon in Gen 6 that I disliked (with those being the Chespin line and Aromatisse), but it wasn't so for Gen 5 (and there are many Pokémon I feel are just "average").

Fennekin's evos are so disappointing u_u
I like XY more 'cause I like the new fairy types, I like the mega evo mechanics, and I love the 3D battles. I like most of the new pokemon too. That's why I personally like XY more. For some reason I didn't like BW that much.

Love all of these things. XY is a very appealing game to play.

However, I like the gen V Pokemon themselves a lot better, and I like the Unova region better than Kalos.

And as something that's important for me, most of the music in X and Y ss uninteresting or even boring. All of the battle themes are really meh and there are only a couple highlights for me personally (like Lumiose, Anistar, Snowbelle, some of the route themes). In Black and White and the sequels, I liked basically the entire soundtrack.

But in all seriousness, I view Let's Play as a walkthrough with a lot more personality involved, and a way of playing a game if I'm not getting it myself. Also, sometimes people actually get the game because of the let's play, which in turn drives up the game's sales.

Although, if I was a game developer, I wouldn't allow people to make monetize let's plays of my game.

Half of "sucking at competitive battling" is not taking the time to get the right IVs and EV train, which is why I'm also not very fond of it. I love that X/Y made it so much easier to EV train, but getting the right IVs (and even nature, to a certain extent) is still annoying as fuck. I'm pretty sure the appeal of Pokemon games has never been monotonously hatching a fuckload of Pokémon.

Actually, the majority of sucking at competitive battling is the lack of knowledge about everything. A majority of people leave their Pokemon in thinking they can live a hit but nope. Or they don't know Scizor learns Superpower etc.

They make a hell of a difference if you play in live tournaments. They allow you to take certain hits and they determine how many EVs you need to invest in a stat in order to live/ko whatever you want to.

Last year I used Raikou and Togekiss on my VGC team. In 2012, I used Throh and Musharna, and won a free trip to Canada Nats. Yes, competitive battles can sometimes be about what Pokemon you have on your team, but the important thing is how will you counter certain threats?  I always use fun/my favorite Pokemon on my competitive teams, and I never do too bad at an event. As long as you know what you're doing you're fine.

Which leads to another unpopular opinion: I hate competitive battling. It ruins the spirit of Pokemon for me. I don't want to feel guilty for using a "good" Pokemon or stupid for using a "bad" one. I just want to use my favorites and do the best I can haha.

The one thing I love about competitive battling is that it allows me to travel to places I never thought I'd visit, and I met a ton of amazing people as a result. Of course you don't have this "benefit" if you don't travel and only play at home... well not exactly, you can still meet people even if you don't meet them irl. But yeah, to me the most appealing thing is the VGC community, not just the competitive battling.

Sounds to me like you're just really bad as sniper. Jarate + bushwacka = as long as you're in a space where people will have to confront you close quarters, you will beat them 9 times out of 10. Even with regular loadout, he's still pretty viable. And, like kefka said, the rest of your team should help to control those classes, anyways. I MVP regularly as sniper, so I wouldn't quite call it "impossible to use right"...
Plus, this opinion is extra frustrating to me when considering mann vs machine, seeing as people will literally kick you for going sniper before even seeing you play (when all of the necessary classes are already covered), even though a good sniper will outdps most classes (last mission I played I outdpsed a heavy, an engie, a demo, and a soldier, and we won on advanced difficulty).
tl;dr SNIPER IS GOOD, OK

-Demoman sux

Now that's just plain wrong. Not that this is the only place where it's useful (there's really no place where he isn't), but try playing as him for one match as defense on payload, and if you don't MVP for your team (and there's no other demo on the team), then I really don't know what to tell you.

I'm sure college is more of a fun experience socially, but I enjoy to focus on other people's fun rather than my own.

Actually, because of the breaks between classes College lends itself to far more socialization than High School ever would. Besides homework, there's probably not much else you'd be doing between classes except socializing in one way or another. Or you could just be that weird loner but eventually someone will find you.

They always do.

The difference is that socialization is no longer nearly as centered around classes, which is way better imo. I have a few close friends from classes, but for the most part my best friends here are people who I've met through expanding social circles that started my first day here, and the ones I like most are the ones I spend the most time with. You have so much more choice in what you do and who you're with, it's amazing. You can choose to hang out with your hallmates (two of my very best friends live on my floor), or not; you can choose to hang out with your classmates or not; you can choose to hang out with people you met during welcome week (or whatever your school calls it) or not. Parties, concerts, game sessions, general hangouts, whatever you do with these people you decide to hang out with, you'll meet more and more people who are into the same things, and you'll end up finding people you're a lot more compatible with than when most of your friends are made through class out of necessity. I still love a lot of my high school friends, but I've started to realize that some of the people I hung out with were just because we were in the same extracurriculars, same classes, etc. And when I hold them up against the amazing people I've met in college in a fraction of the time, I realize that I was never really compatible with those people in the first place, I was just forced to spend time with them.

TL;DR college is great, get excited

Of course, this is completely different in Australia. If you live in a capital city, you have access to at least one University in your city (My city, Perth, has 5 Universities plus a plethora of TAFE courses). So this means that student needn't move out of their parents house when they attend tertiary education of their choice. Thus, socialization does not come as easy, since they will go to Uni, attend a lecture, then go home. In fact, the only attendance which is mandatory is 'Labs' where a small group of students gather and talk about the subject matter, do experiments and gain further insight. Lecture are recorded then put online, so you can learn naked at home. My sister is in her second year of Neuroscience. She hasn't made one friend from Uni and her friend circle is relatively intact from High School. While there are numerous groups which she can join and meet new people, she simply lacks the effort to do so. Whether this system or the American system is better remains unseen.

Also, I've found that High School improves with age. As I began to pick my own subjects and got to know people better, I discovered a passion for learning. I'm always excited to go to school. Wow I sound pretentious

It also the same here for the most part, depending on the school and the teachers, but if you have multiple classes in one day then it's not worth it to run home for 30 minutes only to come back to school. Might as well study at school or hang out with people in your down time.

Hang on, is this still college?

Anyway, there are only 2 or so lectures/labs on for a student a day here. My sister only has to go in to Uni 3 times a week for her Labs and she can stream all of lectures at home. So she (and many other people) go for their labs and then go home.

I've definitely had classes without overlapping lecture dates, so having 2 per day isn't unreasonable for a full credit load.  He could have like a few MWF and then a T/Th or something.  Sounds more like 12 credits, but that's still considered full time at my school :P (12-19 I think?)

It always works like that. Jesus Christ, just look at the hype Sword Art Online got.

Thing is about AoT is that it had a good enough start to get people hooked, but with how damn slowly the manga is progressing (and the horrible manga art), it's making a lot of people lose interest and whatnot. People think it's so intense and ~omg hardcore~ but pfftt sure, keep thinking that. Get back to me when you watch something that's actually intense.
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: Bubbles on June 02, 2014, 08:02:59 PM
I've severely lost my interest in Attack on Titan. I hate it when a show changes major points to cater to the fans, and that's exactly what's happening. I don't mind selling questionable merchandise (since I understand that that makes a profit) but the creator of AoT said in an interview somewhere that he was planning on ending the story one way, but after seeing all the hype it was getting from it's fans he's changing the whole thing so people like it better.

Also I don't understand why the fans make a joke out of the series. Silliness once in a while is fine but I don't think anyone even cares about the plot anymore. My favorite part of the show was the drama and heartbreak, but going into school the next day to have "Eren can't get hard" jokes thrown at me nonstop ruins all the emotion

Yes, it is good, but it's far from great, and it wasn't even among like the three best shows airing that season.
What were the other good shows that season? I watched Free! and Danganronpa but neither were too outstanding (though they were enjoyable)

Also I guess maybe the american fans are shitty?  Close to all the people I personally knew that watched it were Chinese and were not dickweeds about things rofl, I was never even aware of such odd jokes.  The time I was into watching it was right about when the last episode came out though, so I guess it got the mainstream baddie popularity treatment.

I loved the first season! I started watching it weekly at around episode 7 or so, so I think I was around for most of the anime's fanbase development. The animation and soundtrack were great, and put together created suspense and at some times even terror. I just don't think I can experience that again knowing how the show is turning out though. Apparently season two isn't coming out until next summer, so it's not like I'll be seeing anything new anytime soon anyway.

There's a lot more variety in anime than stereotypes may make you believe, so it might be worth giving a few random recs a try.  It is of course infested with tropes as is all media, and there are many you should stay away from for just that reason, but def some great content is around.

In the case of both Sherlock and Doctor Who, the writing could easily be better(especially Sherlock). I watch them because the characters are so charming. I just hope Capaldi has half the charm that Matt Smith did.

The thing about anime is, some are really fucking amazing and some are really fucking terrible. In my experience(which isn't all that much compared to some NSMers) there is little middle ground between the two. And even the really good ones often suffer from things like  lack of convincing emotion or cringe-worthy overblown drama, the latter of which Kids on the Slope suffers from heavily(while being an amazing show all around, it does have it's fair share of issues). Also, when it comes to annoying character tropes, anime has ALL OF THEM. It's far from the perfect form of media some of it's more devout fans treat it as, and as far as I'm concerned, books and movies are still vastly superior modes of storytelling.

But anime is pretty coll

Eh, Shippuden goes through cycles. It started out really strong, but by the second story arc was pretty bad. Then it got really, really good with Hidan and Kakuza's appearance, fell back down, Naruto vs. Pain(which was AWESOME), filler, filler, filler, and then the giant mess that is the 4th Great Ninja War.

Tbh I really hope they bring back Maya/Gumshoe/Edgeworth in the next Phoenix Wright game (hopefully we have another one after Dai Gyakuten Saiban) or that they at least translate future Investigation games if they release any.

I think they will because Maya's inclusion in PLVAA has had a lot of really positive response and games with familiar characters sell very well.

^^most likely scenario

To be even fairer, not everyone is great at math. I understand finding it easy, but being "completely dumbfounded" is either a huge exaggeration or pretty self-centered

While maybe he was a bit harsh, it seems silly to criticize somebody for their lack of understanding on something, when that "something" is another person's lack of understanding. I also can't understand why people find certain things so difficult. High school math is literally just memorization of formulas. I accept that people can be bad at it, to the extent that I can accept anything I don't understand. And I do try to be politically correct when talking about it, because what would offending anybody do to augment their ability at math? But this (http://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2013/10/the-myth-of-im-bad-at-math/280914/) is basically my thinking on the subject (albeit much more researched and coherent). (This SMBC comic (http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1995#comic) articulates it a lot more briefly/humorously, if you're like 99.999% of the world and don't want to read random links I post for the sake of argument.) We tend to accept that if we don't understand something right away, then we must be naturally bad at it, and feel less compelled to try to improve. When I see people do badly at math, I imagine this mindset, and while perhaps this isn't accurate, to me it justifies the "dumbfoundedness" just as much as the idea of "being bad at math" could ever justify actually doing poorly in math.

And the funny thing is, I'm currently defending somebody who doesn't believe in evolution. Am I not the only one who thinks this is ridiculous? Am I not allowed to question this, to be "dumbfounded" by somebody's lack of understanding on a subject that can seem so straightforward? In all of politics, you see people "dumbfounded" by other people's relatively subjective/uncontrollable beliefs and mindsets, and nobody raises a fucking eyebrow. Yet it's somehow just AWFUL to think this way about somebody's understanding of concrete facts? Like, yeah, maybe somebody's understanding of algebra isn't as important to their role in society as is their opinion on social issues such as gay marriage, but that shouldn't be the only qualifier for "dumbfoundedness". And I'm not saying "all people who do poorly at math are idiots who need to put in some fucking effort." I'm just saying, people can't understand math? I can't understand why not. That's just as legitimate of a lack of understanding. And if we need to be politically correct and empathetic about the former lack of understanding, the least we can do is make an attempt for the latter.

It's just when you find something comes naturally, you keep forgetting it doesn't for others. So each time someone complains about the math, I am dumbfounded because I simply keep forgetting that. And I have a terrible memory. -_-

On a related note, I do know one person who has a good reason for doing badly at math. He has some sort of disorder that makes it harder for him to see patterns and stuff, which makes recognizing what you need for a problem harder, and makes algebra impossible

I just called it that because some lady was on the news lately. She appeared one of airbnb's ads, and got in trouble because she was renting out this barn she herself was renting to a bunch of traveling hipsters that needed a cheap place to stay. So then the barn became a place where all these hipsters were gathered around while looking for work -> hipster barn. I just made up the term hipster barn so I didn't expect it to show up anywhere XD Maybe I should have said "frat house."

Some people might be opposed to the idea of sharing property somewhat, so yeah, that's why! Like, what if it was a mansion or one of those European castles I posted about a while back. The ones that were cheaper than an apartment in the city.

- Enter the Dragonfly (everyone's least favourite Spyro game) and Atlantis Squarepantis (everyone's least favourite SpongeBob episode) are mediocre at worst.

@Alt -- Melee is actually a lot more popular than Brawl and I think Super Mario 64 is like the most acclaimed game ever so those aren't too bad. Also how can you not like 64 better it's aged so well

I agree about RBY being really mediocre compared to modern games, but I really love FRLG and the entire Johto era haha. So I guess that's a differing thing between us there

@Nitro -- I also haven't ever played a great game for SNES. As much as I love Mario, I'm not crazy about Super Mario World. Actually EarthBound is great but I never beat it so I'm not counting that.

I mean both are true but there are still a shitton of people who say Galaxy is SM64 but better. I'm pretty sure I heard about one review site giving it an 11/10 because they already gave SM64 a 10/10 and SMG was better so they had no choice but to raise it. But personally SM64 is by far the actually better game lol

dont get me wrong i love playing gsc/hgss i just think they suck lmao

@Zeila: because they did very little to improve on the issues the originals had. The originals were justified in having balance and pacing issues because they were an early experiment, but there is literally no excuse for Psychic still being broken af in the FRLG metagame because they were too much of "remake purists" to allow access to Umbreon or Steelix, or other mons introduced in GSC whose existence is meant to mitigate Psychic's. There is literally no excuse for the grinding before Brock to consist of level 3-5s. There is literally no excuse for the Koga/Sabrina level spike. The addition of Sevii Islands helped mitigate the lack of content between Blaine and Giovanni, but not in an interesting way imo. As a whole the game felt like it was trying too hard to be 100% faithful when what it was being faithful to was a deeply flawed game. I preferred ORAS' outlook, they kind of "reinvented" Hoenn and the Hoenn story rather than "remade" it.

Wait why do you think the Johto games suck? I think they're maybe the best showcase of what Pokémon is all about. Objectively, I don't know if I feel that way, but playing Silver is always, always enjoyable, which is more than can be said about, say, Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.

I played EarthBound, but I stopped around the arcade place near the start because a battle background gave me a headache in broad daylight on a matt-screen TV. DX

I also realize that two of my opinions in my previous post kind of contradict each other: I say that a game that doesn't work properly is "mediocre", then say that the only bad games are ones that don't work properly. I honestly can't think of a justification for this, but apparently they fixed Enter the Dragonfly when it was ported to the GameCube...?

Wait why do you think the Johto games suck? I think they're maybe the best showcase of what Pokémon is all about. Objectively, I don't know if I feel that way, but playing Silver is always, always enjoyable, which is more than can be said about, say, Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.

Pacing and balance issues more or less. I like a lot of the "spirit" but I can't overlook the issues I have with pacing.

- 2003 > Brotherhood
yur not escapin this

I think the first one did a much better job at developing characters to start. It spent a lot more time on everything in the beginning, which I appreciate a lot.
Show Spoilers
Hughes' death and Nina's transformation hit a lot harder in the 2003 version.
[close]
But I think the plot for the latter half of Brotherhood was better.
More spoiler
That the door is just a portal to our world is real dumb comparatively in my opinion. It's a kinda cool idea, but it doesn't resolve anything. There's no feeling of closure, but it's not the good kind of unresolved plot either.
[close]
I think most of people's love for Brotherhood comes from the experience from the first half of the 2003 show. Brotherhood rushed the beginning either to fit in the long last stretch or because it had already been made. If you attached the quality of the beginning of the 2003 version to the end of Brotherhood, it would be amazing. That being said, I think Brotherhood is better still.

Both FMAs
When I first watched FMA03, I found out the ending in advance, and thought that the plot twist, while foreshadowed once, was still rather unnecessary, plus Al de-ageing made no sense and was barely explained. On the other hand, Brothers is a thing, and the ending of Mangahood didn't make much sense to me either. How can you magic away a learned skill...?

- ...But my favourite plots in gaming are Okamiden, Solatorobo, and Super Paper Mario.
- PMD2's time travel makes no sense.

Gen 2 definitely shaped the way for all the other Pokemon games than came after it. Objectively, I think Gen 5 is probably the best generation (factoring in story, gameplay, graphics, etc.), but Gen 2 is still my favorite.

time travel never makes sense.  Get used to it, cause otherwise it would never be used as a plot device
The problem is that fiction tends to make time travel way more complicated than it needs to be (of course, we don't really know exactly how time travel would work), what with alternate universes and stuff (and interactions between characters from different timelines/universes... *shudder*). As long as it's simple enough to allow the audience to follow the story easily and maintain their suspension of disbelief, I think it's a fine plot device (which people rarely do; tsk tsk tsk).

Having played all the way through for the first time recently (N64 version), I can concur with this. Sure, it helped to revolutionize 3D adventure games and the Zelda series as a whole, but it's not incredibly outstanding.

The dungeons were nearly all great, though. I'll give it that.

Fire Emblem Awakening is only among the more well regarded entries with the casual public tho, most longtime series fans agree it's not as good as, say, the ones on Wii or GameCube.

Also @Dudeman YES Steins;Gate is so great but I rarely recommend people play it because it's so goddam slow at the beginning and the player has absolutely no idea what's going on so no one ever finishes it (insert old man ranting about how gamers today have no patience or attention span for reading)

Also it's just hella long it took me 60+ hours to beat it

Oh lol well I mean the anime is a very good and basically accurate adaptation but there's a LOT in the game that doesn't make it into that adaptation, such as pretty lengthy alternate endings based on each character (not to mention I think the payoff is better when you have to go through so much setup yourself but also I'm probably lame). I don't look down on people who just watch the anime LOL but I'm guessing the loooooong sciencey conversations were cut down at least a bit in the anime

One Piece is the worst anime/manga ever written.
The art in the Death Note anime is terrible although the manga art is good.
The art in the Soul Eater manga/anime is terrible.
Fairy Tail is better than Dragon Ball Z.

Why does everyone disappear at different rates?
Why do they treat the two time periods as if they're parallel to each other? In the fifth special episode, Grovyle says Team Protagonists have defeated Dialga as he starts disappearing before a dungeon.
Not directly time travel-related, but why was there a human in the future?

I don't see the point in amiibos. While I understand that people like collectibles, the things they add to games are a mild convenience at best. Then there's those amiibo-required games, which make you have to pay extra to PLAY THE ACTUAL GAME. Plus, people constantly complaining about them being out of stock got annoying really quickly.

Then again, the only amiibo I own is the K.K. Slider card, so what do I know?

Y, they are quite cheesy, it's like Nintendo's saying "Oh look at these cute toys! Why not buy them? (and give us more money!)".

They're especially annoying in games based on them, like Skylanders. It's a great game and all, but every time you want to switch character, you have to move the amiibo of the platform and then put another amiibo on it. It works... but it is quite tedious. In other games where you just scan them, like sm4sh, it works way better. But still, they're only purpose is to attract kids, collectors, and give Nintendo more money.

Skylanders... I played it once because they had it set up in Asda, and it's... okay, I guess? I like making fun of it in my head because it makes me feel less bad about liking Enter the Dragonfly at one point, and that's not good at all. DX

Speaking of games I've never played, in my opinion, the worst game ever made is this ZX Spectrum game called SQIJ!, where none of the controls work. Literally. That's all I need to know. But since the controls don't work, you can't play it, so is it really a "game"...?

Welcome! Here, you can reveal your most unpopular opinions! You won't get judged for them here, and you don't have to back them up if you don't feel like it! It can be about anything, but I'm going to use video games as an example:

My Unpopular Opinions
I Like:

Kirby's Block Ball
Paper Mario: Sticker Star
Obscure Games from Popular Franchises in General

I Don't Like:

Kirby: Mass Attack
Super Mario Bros. 2 (Japan)

I Think That:

- I'd rather wait longer for a Kirby game with original content than shorter for a Kirby game with reused coding
- Super Mario 64 is overrated
- The Mega Man GB games shouldn't have had their GBA bundle cancelled, if they could have avoided it
[close]

So, what are your unpopular opinions? Don't be shy; you're safe here!

Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 04, 2017, 08:24:00 PM
I have to disagree with the sentiment that Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time are overrated. As someone who didn't fully play either of them until 2014 and 2016 respectively, they absolutely live up to the hype and don't feel dated beyond a somewhat iffy camera control system. My personal hierarchy of the 3D Mario games actually places 64 at the top, right above 3D World and Galaxy 2, and Ocarina is my second favorite Zelda after Majora's Mask, which is very similar.

@Maelstrom: Apollo Justice being not great is a POPULAR opinion. It's only the hardcore fandom who loves it unconditionally, and even then most of us didn't love it the first time we played it.

It's also a pretty popular opinion that Partners in Time and Bowser's Inside Story were the peak of the Mario & Luigi RPG series. Personally, I love each game in the series with all my heart, including Dream Team, but I'm surprised that people don't love Paper Jam as much as the old games.

Mario Kart 64 is the weakest Mario Kart, but it's fondly remembered by many because it laid the groundwork for every subsequent Mario Kart. It's an example of something being revolutionary but then outdone by what it inspired.

@Braix I love Gates to Infinity too!

My own unpopular opinions:
-Twilight Princess is a bad, bad game. Like, awful. Not just as a Zelda game, either. And Skyward Sword is actually really good.
-I love all of the 3DS Pokémon games. Including XY.
-Speaking of Pokémon, Pyukumuku is my favorite Pokémon from Sun and Moon.
-Super Mystery Dungeon is the worst Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game.
-Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is the best game for Wii U.
-Unwound Future is the least good Layton game (not counting Layton's Mystery Journey, which would probably take that spot).
-Mentioned this earlier, but I love Dream Team. Everyone else's complaints about the story didn't really ring true for me, and I've played it three times.
-I don't really like Splatoon.

@Maelstrom: Apollo Justice being not great is a POPULAR opinion. It's only the hardcore fandom who loves it unconditionally, and even then most of us didn't love it the first time we played it.

Actually, yeah, I was just about to mention that. Personally, I loved 4-1 and 4-2, thought 4-4 was decent, and despised 4-3 (which is generally common among AA fans, although 4-2 and 4-4 are a bit more controversial; I probably like them more than a lot of other people). But if you want my own really unpopular AA opinion... to me, 1-4 is the worst final case and overall even one of the worst cases in the series.

-Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is the best game for Wii U.

Well I love SM3DW to death so that would take the top spot for me but otherwise YES I love this game

-Unwound Future is the least good Layton game (not counting Layton's Mystery Journey, which would probably take that spot).

Wow talk about an unpopular opinion (not that I don't respect it or anything, but Unwound Future is just sooo completely loved from what I've seen, and I loved it quite a lot too)

-I don't really like Splatoon.

Oh, boy, I can relate... I really don't like it either. Buuut at least when my brother and I ordered it and went to pick it up at Best Buy they accidentally gave us the Splatoon Wii U bundle instead of just the game so we made a couple hundred dollars even if we weren't having any fun with the game we just got :D

I mean, Splatoon is basically Sunshine, but you make a mess instead of clean up...
In all seriousness, I didn't think Splatoon was anything phenomenal, either. Splatoon 2 is beating a dead horse, in my opinion.

I don't understand why people don't like Sunshine that much. It's probably nostalgia blinding me.

To be fair, when you take away the few annoying levels/missions there are, and maybe the really obscure blue coins too, Super Mario Sunshine is the most fun of any of the 3D Mario games for one simple reason that none of the other entries match at all: Mario's controls. In Sunshine, there's so much depth and nuance to Mario's control scheme that makes even just the simple act of moving around so much fun. Even FLUDD was a great mechanic that added to the controls rather than just provided a limited and generally incapable extension. You can do so much more with FLUDD than you ever could with the caps from 64 or the powerups from the Galaxy games.

It's just a shame 90% of the level design didn't match the controls very well, and the parts of the game that did match them (those little platforming areas in every main world) were very bland and uninteresting compared to the main worlds. Every other 3D Mario game has way, way better level design, but I don't find the actual gameplay itself to be as interesting, exciting, or fun as Sunshine's.

Aw man, I loved Splatoon a lot and I don't entirely understand what made it such a "meh" game for a lot of people.

Ninja'd:
I don't own it or anything (and I doubt I'll ever get it), but I'm honestly seeing nothing but complaints about Splatoon 2 at the moment. Those might just be the vocal hardcore Splatoon 1 fans, though...
The main reason Spla2n is receiving so much flack is the weird half-hearted attempts Nintendo made at integrating more "competitive" features common in other competitive shooters. You have voice chat...but only through a clunky and unreliable mobile app. You can team up with friends...but only in ranked modes and league battles. Aside from that, the amazing new team vs. AI mode, Salmon Run, is only available at certain times (WHY?! IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE), and now since the Switch doesn't have a gamepad, super jumping and viewing the map are that much more inconvenient. It could've been great and it still can if Nintendo shoves out updates like there's no tomorrow, but the base game is a disappointing follow-up.

Most of the complaints are that Spla2n isn't all that different from the original Splatoon. So if you love the original Splatoon (like I did), then you probably like Spla2n as well. But for those expecting something more exciting or "fresh", then I can understand the disappointment. That, and the few baffling choices Nintendo has made with things like Salmon Run times or the voice chat app.

Call it bias from childhood but I really like SM64. A good reason is probably how Mario's mobility makes traversing the levels so much more fun than some others.

Anyhoo:

the second best is The Princess Bride

Monty Python wasn't funny at all. Again, just my opinion.

Chiming in on a few things I missed earlier:

MK64 is not the best in the series, as Slow said before it's simply outdone by later versions that did what MK64 did but better. That said the 2D Mario Kart Games (SMK and MK:SC) are easily some of the worst racing games I've ever played, while at the time they did what they could on the Super Nintendo, there's just some things parallax scroll can't replicate well versus true 3D: depth perception. That said I think one of the best things MK64 has for it is its course design; there's a reason why nearly every course from the game has been adapted for later installments.

Sunshine is a good game, the reason why it's regarded so poorly is simply because every other 3D Mario game is fantastic. SM64 and Galaxy are often tied for the best in the franchise because of how much they elevated game design in general. Sure, aspects of SM64 are pretty dated, but it's still perfectly playable even by modern standards. To better compare Sunshine consider it Beethoven's 4th Symphony to SM64 being his 3rd, and Galaxy being his 5th.

Partial voice acting, or a bit of a line read to represent a line of dialogue, or someone speaking, is worse than no voice acting at all. In fact, text based video games are often better off with no voice acting in general. All that effort and money spent on the voice cast should be put into the music and sound design instead. See: Umineko.

I actually don't like Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, and here's why:

- the main leitmotif is way too repetitive; it makes the composer look lazy rather than clever
- the game itself has almost no relation to its "predecessor". They might as well have called something else
- the only new Power-up, the Carrot, is lame. Somewhat helpful, but lame; no wonder it never reappeared
- the level difficulty is overly tame until the final level, where there is a huge difficulty spike
- the developers spent too much time focusing on the map elements and graphics that they forgot to make the game long enough
- the game's enemy name localization is pathetic
- the game is trying way too hard to be Super Mario World, and it fails miserably
- the game is a lone wolf. It seemingly started out as a Super Mario World sequel, got slapped with a "Super Mario Land 2" label, and then its own so-called "sequel" started its own spinoff series
- the game is probably the reason why Nintendo was scared to make another 2D-Sidescroller Mario game for 13 1/2 years

Loved that game, and idk how you could call Kazumi Totaka lazy in any sense of the word! Just look at what that man has done! He's the direct inspiration for K.K. Slider, the composer and voice for Animal Crossing, and the voice of Yoshi, to name a few things.

Also would you rather NSMB style where the exact same version of the main theme plays in every level? lol I prefer the multiple arrangements, personally. It's hard to get people to notice and recognize a tune as a main theme unless there's a lot of repetition, either way.
Title: Re: Unpopular Opinions!
Post by: LeviR.star on August 28, 2017, 01:54:17 AM
I didn't mean lazy in general, I meant lazy in this game's sense. I counted, and I can report that out of the 29 tracks in the soundtrack, the leitmotif plays 12 times. New Super Mario Bros. is nowhere near close.

Oh, and something was interesting; even with how many times it played elsewhere, I did some skimming through the Staff Roll theme and found the leitmotif nowhere.

This probably just wasn't Totaka's best game. He's great everywhere else, though.

I don't think using the same motif countless times is necessarily a bad thing. SML2 did it pretty well imo. Super Mario World did the same thing with all of its level themes as well, and it works just as well as in SML2. Each of the songs in both SML2 and SMW sound unique enough to the point where rearranging the motif works in each soundtracks favor rather than making it worse.

I'm not really a fan of a lot of Grant Kirkhope's music. That's not to say that he isn't talented. I just don't like the playful tone he likes to use with his sudden somewhat-distant chord changes (like C - Ab - C) and his instrumentation. I do like his work in Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, though. It's like how I'm not a fan of most Baroque composers yet it's still possible to appreciate the artistry there, and there are quite a few Baroque pieces that I like.

There's several letters he's written where says he can't warm up to Beethoven's music and doesn't care for it in basically those exact terms, though he liked one of Beethoven's sonatas enough to assign it to students. In general I think a lot of it was that Beethoven was really intense as a composer and Chopin (and really a lot of people) was sort of terrified or freaked out by his music. I mean, tbh no sane person can listen to the late sonatas or string quartets in the context of the time they were published and consider them the works of a sane man.

Definitely with Maestro here; to quote the Garrick Ohlsson lecture that I'm sure we're both thinking of, "Chopin tipped his hat and then did his own thing". He also said that the late Beethoven string quartet in A minor was "greater than anything we (he and Schumann) will ever achieve".

Here's some Kirby music opinions a lot of people (at least YouTube commenters) disagree with me on:

02's theme is worse than a lot of other Kirby music (e.g. 02's theme < Dark Meta Knight's theme, 02's theme < Heart of Nova, 02's theme < Checker Knights, 02's theme < Squeak Boss theme, 02's theme < Moonstruck Blossom--those don't even make my Top 10 Kirby themes list):
It's probably because of my dislike of slow themes, but I keep thinking 02's theme is overrated. The melody is sooooo slow, and the accompaniment isn't interesting enough to compensate (unlike Sullied Grace). The attempts to subdivide the melody notes are amusing, but that's as far as it gets.

Marx's theme < Heart of Nova:
Think both themes are strange all you want, at least Heart of Nova is in a key for most to all of it (F minor). Perhaps Marx's theme is in C minor for the one part of it that sounds sorta like the Kirby Super Star boss theme, but that's definitely the minority of the piece, and it took me a long time for me to figure that out.

Moonstruck Blossom < The World to Win/Soul of Sectonia and Moonstruck Blossom < Sullied Grace:
I can see why Moonstruck Blossom is the most popularly arranged of Sectonia's boss themes (it's lyrical and easily massaged into jazz arrangements), but it's always been my least favourite. Sometimes The World to Win/Soul of Sectonia are my favourites, and sometimes I'm laughing too hard at their (appropriate in the case of The World to Win) use of the Hypernova theme. Sullied Grace took a while to grow on me, anyway, given its very slow melody on top of fast accompaniment, but I like its "And now for something completely different" instrumentation more than whatever Moonstruck Blossom has to offer. I suspect my dislike of slow themes still has something to do with my lack of love for Moonstruck Blossom, but I still see that I'm in the unpopular camp here.
Oh yeah, now I remember what else I don't like about Moonstruck Blossom. It's way too relaxing for a boss theme. I'm not supposed to be able to leave boss themes on as background music for dine-in restaurants.

Dark Crafter's theme < Claycia's theme:
Yeah yeah yeah, Dark Crafter's theme is way more popularly arranged (while I haven't found a SINGLE remix of Claycia's theme yet), likely because it's more lyrical...but it's also way too relaxing for a boss theme, let alone a final boss theme, and at least Claycia's theme is adequately stressful.

Technically, the word "literally" now means "figuratively" if used in certain contexts. It's been this way for at least a century, and is no longer considered incorrect. Even some of the most famous authors have use literally to mean figuratively. For example, Charles Dickens. Example (http://www.dictionary.com/e/literally/).

I'd agree that it's valid to separate the art from the artist sometimes, but I think it's important to know where your money goes. Obviously, for Wagner, it's not really an issue anymore, but if you (the general 'you') buy the work of an artist alive now who has ideas you don't agree with or who takes part in events you don't support, you're giving them money that helps enable those actions or give them influence in culture. Some people take it farther and think that even appreciating their work is too much support. It's not that the stuff they make directly or even subtly reflects their world outlook, but that somebody might believe that the artist doesn't deserve their support given some disagreement.

There's no right or wrong answer, it just depends on the situation for me.

It doesn't really matter to me right now because I'm trying to get all the books from my 2 favorite authors (Cassandra Clare and Rick Riordan)

We watched it during homeroom in 8th grade. I kinda liked it, but I never read the book.

I loved the movie and that was before I read the book. Harrison Ford's performance in the movie was shit though.

Based on other forum posters' reactions whenever leaks happen, I have a feeling this opinion of mine is unpopular:

I love preview/reveal days. The more information is revealed, the happier I get. If enough spoilers are revealed, it's pretty much Christmas in July(/actual month of reveals/leaks) for me. Then my imagination takes over, testing cards/etc., making decks/teams, analyzing how good the new content is, etc. (yeah, some of these are Magic: The Gathering-related).

(Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon leaked today, so I'm swelling with happiness here.)

Every single picture of an acai bowl I see looks disgusting, like somebody just threw some random fruit n junk together because it looked healthy, not because any of the stuff in aforementioned bowl actually taste good together.

This is literally me. Video games over Movies/TV for me unless its a phenomenal show/movie or something. I love golf and broccoli.

I think my problem with watching movies is that I'm watching it with other people and that irritates me for some reason.

I'd probably be more likely to sit through one by myself than with other people.

Watching a movie with family at home:

- Dad's constantly during the volume up and down, and threatens to turn it off if I try adjusting it myself; is sleeping the other half the time
- Mom isn't even paying attention because she's on her iPad, but gets mad whenever I pause it
- my 12-year-old brother is ruining the movie for us by saying whatever's on his mind; fighting with my sister
- my 7-year-old sister won't stop asking questions about the movie; fighting with my brother

Friends are alright to watch a movie with; it's my family that I can't stand watching with.

Levi I'm so sorry... your family is like the stereotypical bad home movie watching experience. :<
