    Er ... how? You're defining agency in such a way that rather begs the question, I feel. I think of agency as fiction-neutral. Mechanical and fictional agency are equally valid. Having reduced agency...

    I don't think it's bad or unnatural. I don't think I ever said it felt that way.

    I do think it's ... disengaged. My character felt like an outsider in Dragon: Age. Superficially this worked. But...

    Here's the problem with exact responses. You either reduce the PC to one-liners or have really rather too much stuff to read. If you have really rather too much stuff to read, you end up with too...

    Yeah ... I own most of the system's best recommendations for me, so that means I'm already starting on it's lesser guesses. On top of that I have a lot of non-steam games. The result is that most of...

    You did? Because to me that just sounds like awful trash to post any way you slice it. It adds to the noise without adding anything of value except humor at the expense of other people and to balance...

    I think part of the joy of Mass Effect was the characters and part of the joy of those characters was the fantastic performances. Dragon Age: Origins was a nice middle-ground. It gave us that while...

    I didn't see a way to go more in depth than that, though.

    If I were going to use steam to find games I liked, I would want to be able to filter out genres where I know I'm not going to like even...

    Yeah, it's a mess.

    I am mostly unaffected by this as I don't use the Steam Store to learn about new games.

    But I like the blue, so there's that.
  11. Indeed. :D

    If I didn't think it was relevant in the context of your replies I wouldn't have said it. I've been listening. I don't know what you mean by "above valid arguments." You explicitly said swearing...

    You're misreading my post. This is what happens when I make short posts. :P

    People tend to have an averse response to blood, violence, physical harm to themselves or others, threats of physical...

    The rational is an abstraction of the irrational. Refusing to acknowledge the role of the irrational in discourse read, to me, like thinly veiled elitism. It's fine to say it bothers you and makes...

    Sure. It's absolutely overly reductive. I guess my miscalibrated response to you primarily stems from my brain skipping over the full implications of the "bad" in "seems more like a bad reading of...

    Are violence and sexism the same? I would say they are not. Well, then it's not, as the level of detail of your statements at least, logically inconsistent to say one has different causal factors...

    Thanks. :)



    I think it's reasonable to address the front-line of "super-mainstream" feminism. There's a point where insisting that feminism is not a monolith is useful and there's a point where...

    This concept is not substantially supported by biological science. Indeed, if we're going on sheer "chemistry" of preference, no one should like playing violent games at all. If anything, research...

    The usage could have meant several things in context. I was asking the author of the post to clarify their points. Not you to be trite about language. I'm well aware words have more than one meaning....

    What bothers me about the association of female gamers with casual games is not that it would surprise me. There are all sorts of weirdly gendered traditions and practices.

    What bothers me is that...

    I don't see what's so objectionable about the post. I don't agree with the underlying philosophy of it, but I don't think it's a particularly unreasonable or untenable approach.
