a friend of mine tends to talk about art in sweeping generalizations and it kinda weirds me out sometimes.
for example, he'll criticize genres of music without really specifying any bands or songs, just broad unqualified statements like: "punk is bad music because it isn't a skillful genre".
thing is, he isn't a musician and doesn't actually know what is or isn't "skillful". he seems to avoid specificity to cover for the fact that he doesn't really know what he's talking about, all while maintaining some level of arrogance regardless of the topic, which all kinda bothers me.
i think a lot of WoW's exclusivity for classes and races is weird and bad flavor. like, who cares if pandarens take slightly less fall damage when worgens deal extra crits? who cares if monks can do (nothing interesting really) when rogues can open lockboxes and druids can be their own mounts?
most efforts done to create class/race distinction in WoW only really serve to pigeonhole certain classes or races into a particular backstory or skill set while failing to substantially deepen other classes/races, it makes characters feel flat and predictable, which is generally not what you want from an MMORPG.
thinking about how payday 2's ""final"" mission was to violently break into the white house and checks notes steal 24 presidential pardons, which were kept in a secret vault in the basement designed just for presidential pardons. and then they just used the stolen presidential pardons and were absolved of all wrong-doing after killing millions of cops and stealing trillions of dollars in loot.
payday 2 is a bit of a dumpster fire of a game but at least they have a realistic grasp on how the united states legal system works
i didn't realize how much the community hated BFA, it started out with so much hype behind it but i've only heard people looking back on it with disdain now that it's over.
I started playing a little while before BFA released and only really lost interest in the game once i reached it's content, i just assumed i didn't enjoy max level WoW content.
It's me Paul, I draw sometimes and make toots that are mostly bad.
