    Ok, yeah, I think we are basically agreeing here.

    I did mean "ironically" but I get what you mean, and I don't think it's fair to characterise someone who speaks out against homophobic slurs as...

    Exactly. I think we're on the same page. We're not talking about the language we use in our own homes. We're talking about the language we use in the most public of forums. Part of the problem though...

    Hah, well said. I would have to say no though, obviously, as that is a legitimate meaning of the word torture.

    How about if I said you're just acting like a total 'black person'. And by that I...

    I would hazard a bet that if you spent all day trivialising rape to a bunch of schoolkids ("I completely raped her", "Aww, I just got totally raped", "Can't wait to go and rape someone") that the...

    There's a difference between making a joke about something, and using something irreverently. I think that a lot of the arguments made against using the word 'rape' are not about the fact that jokes...

    I dunno, it's kinda like really liking a song, and only being able to give your money to the producer, not the singer.

    I appreciate that the producer probably did just as much (if not more) work,...

    I think that's almost literally what a games writer's job is.


    There's probably an interesting argument in here somewhere (ie:shitstorm) on the morality of paying for a game that you're never...

    Ever since reading this, I haven't been able to stop taking notice of the comment post counts on varying threads.

    As a point of interest, are the number of article reads in rough proportion to the...

    Can I register a complaint at the fact that Borderlands had more PCs there than anyone else, yet somehow failed to bring a single mouse/keyboard!

    It's like they forgot this was a PC show and...

    Let's keep it civil please. No need to insult people, and definitely no need to start insulting people based on their race (there's a word for that, and it's not nice!)

    You're ignoring the case where someone doesn't have any money to give a publisher (or wouldn't have given the publisher money had piracy not been an option). This kind of piracy cannot, by...

    I understand what you're saying, and it's a good point, however I wasn't using 'stealing' in it's legal definition. It also exists in common usage, and needn't match other uses perfectly.

    I don't believe that you need to deprive someone of something for it to be theft. Simply taking something (be...

    Well the reason people are 'struggling to grasp' your point is because you are simply repeating a mantra without backing it up with any reasoned arguments.
