    What other way was there to read your message?

    Well having read the OP I figured, hey this sounds like she likes same kind of things as my wife. I then proceeded to name a couple of games. Someone had suggested Anno games but I thought the new Simcity would be a better match for someone wanting "Not difficult." Then I recommend this game to women based on my empiric experience. Granted, the "women" was a bit misplaced there, but even so it doesn't make it a statement about gender. It still remains just my recommendation based on my experiences.

    Lemmings. The classic version, not the butchered PSN versions.

    EDIT: The new Worms game too.

    Actually, that's exactly what it did, especially when you followed up with

    Yet again you take my words out of context to make them seem worse than they are. I think I was rather clear about all I said being my impressions based on my experiences. If I was to say that "in my experience, being a man is tough", would you really read it as a statement about all men ever anywhere? I remind you, that my original post, nor the second one, didn't even receive counter-argumenting. Just trolling and bashing.

    Did I really seem adamant about the thing either? And anyway, are you going to tell me what my experiences are? Am I denied to make cautious assumptions based on them?

    And answer me this: why is the problem only the part of my assumption that concerned women? Is it not equally bad to make assumptions about men?

    Because it's an assumption about women.

    Prefacing your shit by saying "imo" is about as useful as saying "I'm not sexist, but..."

    It is equally an assumption on men. You and others failing to see that just shows that you for some odd reason treat me with projected prejudice.

    Is that an argument? Really? You make the rules now? I kind of thought that conversation can be exchange of opinions. I wasn't enforcing my opinion on anyone.

    Anyway I don't get your problem. I just answered the OP, in what I find perfectly reasonable and helpful tone and then you and others start this batshit.

    it fits some of the criteria you mention so i'd recommend the walking dead.

    it's slow paced, not hard, combat free and has characters to empathize with.
