Rather than not figuring it out, I’m pretty sure it’s a deliberate case of the Germans assuming family gaming should not be about making your friends and family angry by fucking them over in dickish ways.
Wonder if "Fuck You Asshole" and "Eat Shit and Die" expansions are in the works?
Yeah, those were pre-release expansions, done back in 1942. IIRC, they involved genocide and death chambers. Yeah, Ze Germans are no strangers to direct confrontation, I mean after all, they did start two fucking world wars. But thanks for sharing. It was peachy.
And if someone's family and friends are such wankers that they can't handle a little bit of confrontation, they're probably the same ones who grew up needing to be told how special they were every day, getting little trophies for pedestrian "achievements".
"Achievement Unlocked: Born a pussy, die a pussy, and live life as a pussy" sounds like the XBOX one a person like that might receive.
Let's face it, though, for real. German-style games have plenty of fuckery. It's just passive aggressive. I've seen many a time where people took the Reed in Gric, even though they only wanted to block someone else. That's fuckery. It's meant to be a dick. Same with taking a role in Puerto Rico that you don't really need just to deny someone else opportunity. It's fuckery, but it's weenie, passive aggressive fuckery.
And the people that do those sorts of things chortle little wankerish congratulatory chortles to themselves, so happy that they were so bloody clever that they could hose their buddy so nonchalantly, with plausible deniability.
Sack up, stick it to them. Look them in the eye. Snake them out. Don't be a pussy.
