"because eating is the part of the value."

No it isn't. If it were, then the act of eating could be charged for and added to the price. When you buy a good, you are buying the work that went into making that good, not the act of using it.

"when it comes to gaming it is the experience that holds the value. so when one copies a game and seeds it online it can be consumed by millions with no degregation at all in quality."

"so according to you i should just go to a restaurant and eat someone else's filet mignon if i can only afford hamburger?"

Strawman. In that analogy you have permanently stolen a good that can no longer be sold for a profit. How does that occur with piracy?

Strawman. Piracy involves inanimate objects and doesn't cause physical harm to anyone. Games also do not have agency.

"what are you even talking about? it doesn't matter if you think games are overpriced or are broken, piracy does not give anyone a right to use the content. end of story. gaming is not a necessity, this isn't about life or death. if you can't afford the hobby then do something else."

Entertainment is considered in most democratic nations to be a life necessity and factored into social based finances, so sorry gaming is technically part of a necessity. ...

EDMIX just stop.

There is no nuance, no "mixture" of anything.

Games do not cause, nor influence, violence. A person's mental state does not ever allow for a causal link because if they are insane enough they can use literally anything as a catalyst. They could eat Alphabet Soup and see "Kill everyone" float in the bowl, doesn't mean the soup caused violence.

Honestly. Just stop.

"Why should you? Because they have admirable qualities, their gender is irrelevant."

That's not really an argument. While I disagree with the idea that gaming should be dominated by male characters simply because the nature of gaming is such that dominance shouldn't even be a factor, the idea of not being able to enjoy a female character because you don't feel they are believable characters in certain instances is a valid opinion to have.

Well let's put aside the "the game is successful anyway" argument and focus on the "do games with female leads sell more" argument.

Just because HZD sold 2.6 million doesn't mean it sold more than a game with a male protagonist. If we take a game with similar gameplay starring a male protagonist we can probably find many that have sold more than HZD.

That isn't saying that HZD is a bad game, and there are many factors to co...

@TricksterArrow: "He never disserviced male characters in favor of female ones, nor vice versa."

Nadine. Nadine disservices Nate and Sam with her plot invincibility.

"I mean, yes, Dead or Alive is very exploitative of women, but that should be "OK"

Which women are being exploited in Dead or Alive? Because from what I can see, Dead or Alive doesn't have women. It has renderings of the female form. This is som...

I wasn't meaning that it was easy in a negative way, just saying that it was easy. I don't typically care about trophies so when I was finished playing the game and realized I only needed one more trophy (the one where you have to destroy the practice targets), I was pleasantly surprised. The way the trophies are set up in the game is great in my opinion.

Oh right, my bad. I don't know why I thought that.

@EDMIX: Look at all of that unnecessary fluff you had to insert in your comment. Compare your comment to ps3vita4life. Learn what being succinct means and then STFU because no one cares what you have to say anyway.

"Is there a reason why somebody needs to fight you to convince you that they like something that is of a subjective nature?"

This is why you need to STFU EDMIX because you never even know the basics of any topic you discuss.

No one is saying a person has to defend liking something, what is being said is you can't defend the problems of the game itself but people are trying. There are objective flaws with the game that are being given passes ...

As in McGrath? Nice choice. We need him back. Too bad SP is working on Spiderman instead of Infamous.

Why? What is going on here? I went to his page and all I see are gifs and vids of clips of him playing the game. Are you suggesting that playing the game is a skill GG needs? I platinum'd the game, it was easy, where's my flight to Amsterdam?

"Not remotely unfathomable, dude. Nadine's been trained, taught, to fight and kill since CHILDHOOD. "

And then follow up with this...

"You're also missing the ludonarrative dissonance."

Eh, IGN hasn't stirred the political pot before, I'm inclined to believe they aren't doing so now either. David Jaffe has just proven that he sucks at game development now. The only SJW thing about this game is, afterall, David Jaffe. I'm sure he'll run his mouth about this.

"Sully's history as a Marine, however, didn't neatly fit into what Naughty Dog wanted to explore in an Uncharted game."

But Nadine's history as the leader of a PMC does? Specious reasoning.
