No, not looking for great theories or political essays – just a regular progression of conversation where both parties try to make some kind of point and justify it, by responding to each other over…

Yes, generally I take each statement in a conversation as being a “connected entity”, not a series of unrelated discrete comments. I think that’s what most people do when they have a conversation,…

Well, you can bang you head, but I think the problem is that you’ve lost track of your own argument. If you look at how that strand of the conversation went, you said:

Again, here, can’t you see how you’re making a huge presumption about your own position– that it represents “fairness”, and therefore 99% of people would agree with it? Don’t you think maybe rather…

I don't think it’s disingenuous at all. Your original statement was, “From the left side the most common mis-representation I see regarding politics in games is 'x game has this political theme so…

Well, you gave the main point of my argument the snarky *snip*, and seem to be addressing a different point entirely. I’ve not said anything about wanting censors, benevolent or otherwise, or judging…

The comparison with the film was just to serve the point that the definition of what is propaganda is very much down to point of view. The core of the point I’m trying to make is that I think it’s…

I don't need to read your mind. I say it's arbitrary because it must be - as it would be if I made a claim about a certain work being propaganda, rather than merely having political themes. If I…

Well, what I'm suggesting is that your distinction between "political themes" and "propaganda" is arbitrary, and is dictated by your political views.

BTW, could you list some of these RPGs that…

Yes, and I wonder if that statement would have triggered all this nonsense, if other scraps hadn't been misrepresented by people stimulating their SJW detectors.

I remember watching it for a bit, years ago. Talk about making it up as you go along - I can scarcely imagine where it is at this point! :p

I think what an intelligent person would realise, is that it's irrelevant here whether you are speculating or stating fact - in either case one bases one's position on some kind of evidence and…

You are quite fond of telling me I'm not very bright, which is not very nice, and hurts my ickle feelings :( . It's not much of an argument, though. I actually think you're probably a fairly bright…

LOL. Watch the bloody(!) trailer. You can see all those dudes giving you consent before you beat them to death with sledge hammers, pin them down, and drain their blood.

I think there will always be some sort of PC gaming scene. It's the consoles that should be worried, and I suspect that's where the AAA market will go.

My bet would be that in a few years, the streaming services will take over, and it will be rather like subscribing to Netflix, Amazon and HBO to get your games. Competition will be based heavily on…

Well, I'm not an "Epic supporter". To me this isn't a partisan issue, of choosing one team or the other. They're all multibillion-dollar corporations, and I regard all of them with suspicion. It just…
