Exactly why embargo's do not work.




Here we go. I knew at least one thread today would go haring off into the yonder at some point.

That type of thing happens anyway, whether embargoes exist or not. It's part of what our brains do, filtering out content we don't need (like).

Extreme points of view aren't caused by filtered information, filtered information happens because of extreme points of view.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

If a people cannot see "extreme" views  then how can they learn to cope and face them?

It's actually the head in the sand mentality here. One that will not listen to alarms because "it's extreme" it's more along the lines of ignoring hurricane whisles because they are annoying.

 

What can actually be defined by extreme, old folks think mt.dew and snow boarding is extreme.

 

As a matter of fact if you are filtering any information you've already entered a bias state. "This information is not good to me so I ignore it", that is incredibly anti-social. It isn't like there is a physical filter in your brain blocking information, you've selected these synapses to not fire off. "I don't get it" so on.

 

All views can be truly seen as extreme by someone somewhere, and thus humans are the problem!

I don't use these forums to help me decide on whether or not to buy a game.  There are certain posters that just like to troll and so they get blocked.   There are others that really hate games that I either like or am ambivalent towards, I tend to block them as they offer nothing interesting in their posts.  I'm getting close to clearing my block list and starting over.  This past year has been REALLY bad with the rabidly anti D3, SWTOR and GW2 people.

Pink, it's like red but not quite.

Don't forget the two steps required to Start an Argument On A Forum:

1.  Post an opinion.

2.  Wait.

 

But it gets pretty quiet, if you accept only agreeable positions; what's the point of visiting a message board at all?

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

So I've been playing a particular game for quite a while and enjoying it alot. This game has been getting alot of mention and alot of people dissing it, saying that it's a fail game, and they feel cheated from the developers. This predominately comes from a small number of people but these people seem to feel that this game doesn't deserve it's reveiws. There have been people that used to play but now feel the need to share their "time to quit" with the world, which is their right and I have no intention on saying they shouldn't post.

The thing is, that if I like this game, and these other people don't, then why should I concern myself with their opinion? When I first came to mmorpg.com, I wanted to get insight into other mmo's. I wanted to find out what games would be good for me, and what games wouldn't suit my interest. I wanted to be a part of a "community of my peers" so to speak.

However, finding that these people with drastic differences in opinion to my own, post things that are contrary to my own perspective. This taints the gainful knowledge that I may obtain for what games would suit my preferences. It behooves me to bypass their opinion and look to others that share the same preferences as my own.

So I find that if a person decides that the games I enjoy, are not enjoyable, than why would their perspective on future games match my preference?

I do feel disappointed at this conclusion, as I've felt that many of these people offer their opinions in a valid manner. However that does not change the fact that I don't want to miss out on games I may enjoy just because someone that has a different set of likes and dislikes posted negatively on it.

 

Thanks for reading.

 

Note: This thread is about being selective on reveiws and impressions, NOT what game I like or dislike.

Haha, just getting one side of the story is ridiculous, how can you call yourself informed if all you do is listen to the one side that agrees with your stance? Of COURSE you are going to hear what you want to hear because you only want to read things that follow your train of thought. Not a very good way to go about seeing the whole picture...

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

I don't think your reasoning is very sound. You said "However that does not change the fact that I don't want to miss out on games I may enjoy just because someone that has a different set of likes and dislikes posted negatively on it."

How would reading a negative opinion "miss out on games i may enjoy"? No one says you have to act on that negative opinion (i.e. not to play the game)?

Knowing an opinion different from yours has nothing to do with your own behavior. If you will miss out on a game just because you read a negative opinion, then may be you agree with it. If that is the case, it does you a favor and informs you that you may not like the game as much after all.

Either case, you win and lose nothing.

The problem is that I don't automatically shut up when someone has decided my ideas are no longer worth listening to.

( although I would like to believe that few people encounter this problem with me, I do have a few not-entirely-live horses I persist in riding )

I have never, ever, not tried a game because people on forums didn't like it. I have, however, tried games because people on forums did like it.

Guess I'm a glass half full kinda guy.

Way I see it, if others like something there's a chance I might as well. Always worth a try if it's a possibility.

Whatever we sent monkey's into space with no return chances, exploded animals in sub orbit and you are saying that dressing a dog up in the enterprise is cruel?

Nay sir. Nay.

 

Cruel is smashing your dogs scull in day and out, this is just mildly amusing and the dog paying it's dues IE eating and living for free. It's his job. Now correct me if I am wrong but nowhere is this dog looking as though it's suffering.

 

It's stupid to animals, not cruelty.

I don't know what is the point to coming to open  forums if one can not handle opposing opinions. Why not jist stick to fan sites?

I can, but have filtered it out as useless and irrelevant.  I teez I teez!!  And since the OP doesn't have me blocked he now has to read your post too. o.o

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

So I've been playing a particular game for quite a while and enjoying it alot. This game has been getting alot of mention and alot of people dissing it, saying that it's a fail game, and they feel cheated from the developers. This predominately comes from a small number of people but these people seem to feel that this game doesn't deserve it's reveiws. There have been people that used to play but now feel the need to share their "time to quit" with the world, which is their right and I have no intention on saying they shouldn't post.

The thing is, that if I like this game, and these other people don't, then why should I concern myself with their opinion? When I first came to mmorpg.com, I wanted to get insight into other mmo's. I wanted to find out what games would be good for me, and what games wouldn't suit my interest. I wanted to be a part of a "community of my peers" so to speak.

However, finding that these people with drastic differences in opinion to my own, post things that are contrary to my own perspective. This taints the gainful knowledge that I may obtain for what games would suit my preferences. It behooves me to bypass their opinion and look to others that share the same preferences as my own.

So I find that if a person decides that the games I enjoy, are not enjoyable, than why would their perspective on future games match my preference?

I do feel disappointed at this conclusion, as I've felt that many of these people offer their opinions in a valid manner. However that does not change the fact that I don't want to miss out on games I may enjoy just because someone that has a different set of likes and dislikes posted negatively on it.

 

Thanks for reading.

 

Note: This thread is about being selective on reveiws and impressions, NOT what game I like or dislike.
