Ah my new friend, once we had a listing of the greatest forum threads in the history of GWJ; we called them the Goodjer Commandments. Wanted to learn of the saga of Civ II Person? It was in the Commandments. How terms like "Cleveland" or "Oogaba" entered the Goodjer lexicon? It was in the Commandments.

But then something happened and the Commandments vanished.

*gasp*

How will we ever remember the truth about dragons and cars?

Was that the porn remake of The Truth About Cars and Dogs, or do I need to spend my weekend writing a screenplay?

Dragon Truthers' belief that the low blooded Dirk the Daring and the foreign Dragon Singe were co-conspirators in a long con sweetheart scam to dupe high standing Princess Daphne of her families copious wealth deserve to be heard and not vanished like some rusted out car in Cleveland.

The best part is that someone is reading this thread and has no idea what the whole dragons and cars thing is about, and they're googling it right now and discovering yet another horrible truth about Rule 34 of the internet.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is basically Just Cause 3.

And therefore I shouldn't count its current inclusion with some graphics cards as justification for upgrading my gaming rig.

That's going in my Dungeon World plot-hook notebook.

MEMORIES ARE PRECIOUS.

What in the hell.

I'm very happy that I am a part of this thread.

Pubic transit. Really?

I deny everything!

HOT TAKE: Lots of people talk about how they play games "for the story", but game narratives are worse than the average B-movie and only slightly better than the average pornographic film.

Turns out that a lot of people like mediocre stories, poorly told. A brief glance at broadcast TV schedules seems to validate this.

"I" read Playboy, for the articles...

X-Men is better as a Space Opera than as social commentary.

What game?

(your turn)

HOT TAKE: Most of the middle of Mass Effect 2 is boring and repetitive. All these combat missions feel the same, and only 2 or 3 characters are interesting. Charlie Sheen is delightful as the X-Files' Cancer Man.

Related HOT TAKE: The Mass Effect series went sharply downhill after the first game, as it pivoted from a KOTOR-like RPG into a mediocre shooter.

While I enjoyed ME2 and 3 for what they were I would prefer the sequels to have been a continuation of the style of the original. Although the most fun I had playing ME2 was as a Vanguard which puts the 'mediocre shooter' criticism to bed. As a shooter it is pretty mediocre, but there are more enjoyable ways to play it.

The Mass Effect series went sharply downhill after you take control of the ship.

Counter-hot-take; the original Mass Effect's combat and movement are so bad as to be largely unplayable after the sequels, and "exploration" in that game consisted of driving a basic vehicle around largely bland and featureless worlds, trying to get the stupid Mako just right on the world geometry so you could get up the mountain and get another material.

A few solid story moments and a great ending aside, Mass Effect isn't really all that good of a game.

Hot take: Nioh has waaay too mucccch loot.

Loot, like Mass Effect, is almost always bad.
