I've decided to start a weekly editorial called "Stupid S*** Gamers Do." Why? Because us gamers do a lot of stupid s***, and if I don't rant about it, I'm gonna go f****** insane!
Number 1 on the agenda: Threads that read "Will I like this game."
You've seen 'em, probably daily if you frequent game-related discussion forums like the ones here on Gamespot, or over on the sister site, GameFAQs, etc.
How on God's green Earth could anybody know the answer to this stupid f***** question!? The latest one I saw was for the upcoming SMT game, Shin Megami Tensei IV. It's one thing to weigh in on a game you've played and say, "hey, yeah, this is a good game, you may enjoy it." But it hasn't even been released yet for God's sake.
Now, I know most of these threads are likely created by younger gamers, but it's still one of those things that when you see it waiting for you in your favorite discussion forum, it's impossible to not respond to with violent derision.
Please stop making these stupid threads.
