When I started listening to GeekSpeak I thought Derk was totally cool. Now I know he is a Know-Nothing Poser, in a totally GROGnads kind of way.

See item #5 in this geeklist...

It wasn't as good as I remember.


Stephenson's Rocket is one of the 'best' designs ever. Not just from my perspective, but in a truly Online games don't count on five and dime lists type of way. That is to say, it is objectively the coolest design ever. And that's not just the Jameson talking.

The veto round turns a blah game into a Masterpiece of ridiculous 'formatting ExTREmISm'.

Wow, that took so long that I'm almost sober again. But not sober enough to comment intelligentibly (an amalgam of intelligently and intelligibly). One of my favorite amalgamative words, along with harraneous and pitithetic.

Actually, maybe "Intelligiblently" works better.

I'm a noob, and not sure if you're serious. But--

If you are serious, you've knocked both Derk and GROGnads.

in a BASS-ackward fashion
I got to speak with Bryan for a little while in the CHAT and it might seem as if it didn't impress HIM very much, I believe. But I did LEAVE an 'impression' upon 'im, as evidenced by HIS journal entry. Maybe I AM so 'thick-skinned' as to NOT care if this is a 'shot' at me or whatever, but I am not going to be losing any sleep over it, in any case. Since I have not been able to listen to any of the Geek Speak, I can't 'say' anything in Derk's defense, so he's on his own. I am of the 'mind' that this is 'satire' as it were, so don't go TOO hard on the bloke. He admits 'posting' in a somewhat inebriated 'state'(must be the Georgia Peach Schnapps 'talking'), so we should 'give' him that! Anyway, I have my OWN 'detractors' so Derk, get some of YOUR own and quit trying to hog mine or woo them into your 'camp'. sheeeeesh! talk about an "attention Whore!"

Hmm
You will likely NEVER unanimously agree on a list of games with any other person. If Derk was not impressed with the game, it clearly did not have the elements he finds entertaining. I game with a group of 9 others and not a single one of us would agree on every game. Some games I feel are poorly constructed my playing partners feel are genious. I love a random element to games, some of my playing partners absolutely hate it. It just depends on what you are looking for in a game.

Example
How can an oppinion be wrong?

Examples:

1) Adolf Hitler was simply misunderstood. He is a hero not a Bad guy. That is my oppinion anyway.

2) It is my oppinion that all other races are inferior to the white man.

3) Miller Lite taste great and is less filling.

I could go on and on.

Yes, those are opinions, and depending on who you ask, and who is doing the asking you are going to get different answers and different responses to those answers. They aren't "right" or "wrong", so to speak.

If I say "Fish is the best food on the planet" to someone who hates fish, his view will be slightly different; not right or wrong. Am I "wrong" in saying that fish is the best food on the planet, or is that just my opinion?

In your point of view, something will be "right" or "wrong", but to someone else it might be a different case.

My point was that while subjective oppinion can be right or wrong based on supporting arguments.

Therefore if someone was of the oppinion that Hitler was a good man, a hero so to speak, it would be easy to disprove this oppinion. While supporting facts on this oppinion would be hard to come by.

So I think oppinions can be wrong, if one could make a valid argument against them.

I can see your point of view on that. I still believe though that an opinion is a personal belief and not something that is labled right or wrong.

Interesting topic though.
