I never talk about the entire game industry, we talked about fighting game
:mwhy:

Look, it doesn't hide the fact that ALL games go through a relatively similar process. Even then, not all fighting games are just "MUGEN with money thrown in" as you've stated before. Fighting games can be millions of times different and have all these different features that make the game stand out more, but what you've said attempts to go against that.

and I never meant anything about sandwich or times needed to make a good game.

I know that, since you weren't the one saying it. What I used was a thing called a "comparative metaphor", which COMPARES the differences between two things and two other things. I'm glad you didn't get it.

before you were born, games came as closed project, you buy a final tested version of finished games , how long they were in development we don't know and not involved better be long and thoroughly tested otherwise the company will lose money, get mocked in negative publication and somebody get fired, what we get were  mostly trouble free games,with cartridge and hard copies developer didn't have chance to right their wrong through patches, hidden extra characters were  planned from the start, just locked or hidden away so when they got unlocked they won't cause too much problem with the rest of the roster.

Listen, I know of those games. It may be hard to believe but I absolutely adore the kinds of games you're mentioning, compared to other "mainstream" games that I usually despise. As much as I want to get more games like this, it's just impossible since technology has pretty much evolved in an exponential fashion. Nonetheless, this arrangement of words coming from your end has almost nothing to do with the original ... -ahem- ... "argument".

but now you buy game that is growing, by introducing something new periodically onto an existing game they disrupt the balance everytime again.
so now consumers are willing beta testers of an open project game more like mugen,

Again, it hearkens back to the idea of technological advancement.
Also MUGEN is almost nothing like this, seeing that its only supposed to be a base template of the engine's capabilities. Game engines like MUGEN are more open because they're INTENDED to be "fiddled with", unlike actual games.

now stuff that fillet mignon into your...
                     :pfht:

Wow, you seem to REALLY have something against filet mignon, don't you?
Also, c'mon. If you're going to make up an insult to say to my face, be a man and finish it!
(or don't. It's up to you, really.)

goddamn fancy millennial.   :computer:

Huh. That's a new one.  :confused:
(edit: Also holy moly, you're 40! No wonder you'd say that!)

It's alright to have a neutral perspective on things, especially arguments like this.  ;D

Also yeah... "millennial". Such a broad and misused term. I'm not even too sure if I am one myself!

I agree cause some people say it's like super late 90's to now. The more people use that term, the less power it has.

Both you and kakkoi are acting extremely cringeworthy over a small ass remark about kakkoi comparing mugen to fighting game, can you both stop lol

You're both overreacting and trying to 1 up each other in terms of insults and shit that nobody here needs to hear about on and on. You both are looking immature as hell right now, just stop replying to each other and leave this stupid subject alone and stop derailing this thread over said subject good Lord.

What is the best case of “you just picked a fight with the wrong person” that you've witnessed?

Quote
Happened to me, and recently.

An employee at the neighborhood cafe I had frequented for the past six years started harrassing and intimidating me at the beginning of last year, because her boyfriend (also co-worker) was in the habit of flirting with me every time I came in. He would try hitting on me right in front of her, completely oblivious to her while she stood there watching and fuming. I noticed her in my peripheral vision each time, and would simply walk away and pretend not to understand her boyfriend’s advances.

To get away with her emotionally abusive tactics towards the customer that was done with stealthy duplicity, the charming and saccharine employee (a try-hard performance I saw right though when she was hired not too long before all this began) would try to insult me to my face as she took my order each day by pretending to have forgotten my name. She didn’t hide the fact that she was pretending either, but would flutter her lashes, look up at me doe eyed innocently and sweetly say each day, “I’m so sorry, what’s your name again?”

After I told her with a poker face, despite knowing what she was doing, she’d smile happily to herself as she typed in my name, as though pleased that she’d been able to dominate another human being. And after I’d sat down at my usual table, she’d march over, hover over me and began loudly and cheerfully addressing all the other regulars by name.

She’d snicker as she looked me up and down, stifle her laughter as she studied my face each time I was giving her my order, or suddenly appear right beside me if I was at the condiment bar in the back, sighing in subtle exasperation as though she still couldn’t get rid of me. Found phlegm floating in my drink at one point, but not wanting to accuse anyone without proof I didn’t report it.

When I kept coming back (this covert narcissist still didn’t get after eight months that her emotional bullying had no effect on me, as she was such a mediocre person all I really felt was embarrassment for her), she took to groaning dramatically and making as though wanting to vomit when I was next in line, and then she started slandering me. Told her boyfriend that I cursed at her while she took my order and who knows what else, in order to turn him against me, the customer who wanted nothing to do with either of them. He started watching me with suspicion (and she’d grin happily beside him at how things were turning out) and she got other younger employees, eager minions, to report to her when I’d go by in the evenings when she wasn’t on shift, so she could continue harrassing me when she wasn’t there.

As all of this went on, I made both mental and physical note of it all.

I write about human rights issues, the world’s oppressors and tyrants, and bad behavior in general, and I do so without political correctness but acerbic flair. I’m also an easy target for bullies — I’m an introvert, am always sitting in the cafe by myself, reading or writing, and rarely interact with others around me. Having not reacted to her provocations and bullying all those months was mistaken for submissiveness and weakness, instead of what I was exercising in the presence of attention seekers — stoicism.

I waited for the right time, when she’d least expect, before writing a long-ass review on the cafe’s Yelp page, describing in full detail all the crap she’d pulled on me, the customer, for nearly a year. Made sure to mention that I wrote about bullies for a living and I’d spoken to some buddies who’re attorneys, which could only make her look even more stupid, targeting and slandering a person/customer she knew nothing about, and the fact that none of the complaints I’d made in private (I made five in total after eight months, when her mask had begun to slide almost completely off) were taken seriously by others. Cafe lost my business and damaged their own reputation, because the “sweetest” two-faced employee they had on staff managed to manipulate all of them, causing this much trouble for everyone.

That repulsive person was exposed in front of an audience, and I can only imagine that the inevitable outcome was that she was fired. All of this because of a guy, in what I now refer to as a great anecdote, and the saddest display of insecurity I’d ever seen.

Also, how’s that for a front-runner for the Darwin awards?

walrus just wanted to type "extremely cringeworthy" because it rhymes, and make random reason for it.

no, you trying to use "fancy millennial" as an insult and basically egging him on is what i was calling out, which then in turn turned into a dumb convo in the thread about the word millennial being cringe apparently, which is dumb in itself because it's not even an insult.

you were trying to act witty and instead of just calling out the other guy overreacting, you decided to act like you should talk him down as if that made anything better.

 you could have shut the whole thing down but instead nope, you decided to let it drag on even after i explained to the other guy you were just using hyperbole and he was the one overreacting.

Most of the members in this forum are millennials, it's not a term that means anything but the fact that they're born in the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years, which is again, most of this forum. using it as an insult is as dumb as me saying "you're a damn baby boomer". there's literally no meaning other than "wow you're a certain age so you must be less educated than i am"

even right now you're being snarky by saying i called you out to find something to rhyme with for no reason, which is pretty silly and sounds like something a kid would use as an insult. instead of again, discussing things like an adult.

i know you're an older member, so act your age instead of trying to be the person with the last word. if you're gonna reply to this with another witty comment, don't. this is not meant to restart this whole thing again, it's meant for me to explain in depth why i called you out as well since you're accusing me of doing it because i couldn't do anything else. If you wanna discuss things like an adult, fine, go ahead, but don't do it here.

this should be the last thing said about that whole topic, it's not about me getting the last word in, it's about just getting everything out of the way so things can go back to normal.

i get what youre saying, lui, i really do, but this discussion was actually over and you just chose to revive it with a long ass post. you are taking this way, way too seriously- the same overreaction youre accusing others of. cool off, if these guys continue, we can break it up then.
