Like the title says...

Game ratings are good, game rankings are good, game reviewers are good, it's all good! I also like cool plastic miniatures in my games, but I'm ok with charming little meeples. Coops are good, with or without traitors (and yes, semi-coops are more than semi-good). I'm totally fine with games that use apps but I'm also ok with games that only use hand-carved dice blessed by technology averse druids.

Legacy games? I haven't played one yet but they sound rip-roaringly good!

Excessively expensive Kick$tarter project$? Define excessively? Because I think the highest I've gone is $120 and that was good. I think it's good that there are more expensive ones, even ones that cost my rent. It's all good!

Games about trains? Good! Games about planes? Good! Games about Chihuahuas? Not so good, but still not actually bad.

Godly games? Heavenly good. Ungodly games? Devilishly good. Light games? Effervescently good. Heavy games? Brain churningly good. They're all good!

Ameritrash? Good!!! Euros? A stately and somber good. Abstracts? Elegantly good.

(EDIT 3) Cooperative games? After much discussion, and a little guidance from our local alpha player, I think we can all agree that they are HARMONIOUSLY good!

Games in the top 10? Good? Games in the next 10? Just as good! Games ranked 216-226? Awesomely good! It's all good!

Honestly, it's all good. No need to be hating on games, systems, reviewers you don't like. It's all games, it's all good.

6Games = Good!!!6

Ok, I feel better now.


Edit: This really needs a poll.
Poll
Games?
Good!
Not good.

(Even though he never ever ever EVER stops smiling! ); Tom Vasel is good (two giant game shelf thumbs up! thumbsup thumbsup ); Richard Ham (Rahdo) is good (all cuddly C A R E B E A R inch of him ), and Shut up and Sit down are wittily Britishly good (I have nothing to add in parenthesis, sorry).


(OK, fine, here's something...
)

(Edit 4) Also, and you'll have to trust me on this: This cookie is incredibly gooooood.

Some people's polls can't be relied on as an accurate representation of what they are trying to achieve - every poll is too positive, they never do a bad poll.

I reckon they are shilling for a polling company.

They should be up front about it and at least add a disclaimer - and change their flag to Poland.

Yes, there is certainly a lot of 'good' in this for it to be a 'bad' poll.
There does appear to be some kind of sublimal message attached to this one, though, so I might be inclined to question it on that basis.
However, I seem to be feeling...let's see...Good. Yes, that's it. Too good to be bothered questioning.
I'm sure it's all good.

Word! I often think about simply unsubscribing from General, which would be a shame because there's so many good threads here. And hey, if I had unsubscribed, I would have missed this thread!

Internet comedy ... (internet bias)

Ask the internet if the sun rose today and 15% will say that it didn't. They might comment that the earth rotated etc. People are funny that way.

Others cannot accept anything as being good. This is commonly referred to as FoxNews syndrome. It affects many people in the U.S. these days.

On this site we are free to use the word good as we see fit so my definition of good is different to yours in that it only applies if you say it while hopping around the room and repeating it backwards.

While I agree, to me at least, that the recent negativity of some threads is annoying I don't begrudge anyone from posting their views, it's only when the title is "leading" and/or the opening thread is not only bashing on the topic but shaming others to agree with the OP is truly bothersome to me.

That said, Carl, where was the "Bacon" choice!?

9% of you say games are bad? Hmmm, seems like 9% of you are clearly in need of a big ol' hug. C'mon, we can turn that frowny face upside down! Who's a good boy (or preferred gender label), who is? You are! Yes you are! Now go back there and change your vote!
