ROSS'S BIG GAME LIST

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm giving you a chance, because you're honestly acting like a troll now, but just in case you don't realize it and this is just a misunderstanding, I'll try and boil it down more simply:

 

You say the extremist left controls the games industry and this is a fact.  "Extremist left" is a relative term that doesn't have an absolute definition.  Facts are absolutes.  So, in order for your statement to be true, there would have to be NO exceptions under any conceivable definition of "extremist left".  The Marx / health care were examples of exceptions that show under some definitions of "extremist left" the game industry does not meet those qualifications.  Therefore, your claim of your statements being FACTS is not correct.  If they were, there would be no exceptions to what you are saying.  I'm looking at this like a logic problem. 

 

Asserting something that can be readily proven false (the claim that your statements are facts), is a recipe to argue with people.  I suspect you know this, but on the offchance you don't, I'm trying to be crystal clear on why it's not helpful for this thread.

 

If you're not trying to troll and just don't get what I'm saying, sorry, feel free to show what I'm saying to someone else, maybe they can explain it to you.  And if you're not trolling, understanding what I'm saying can help you communicate your point far more effectively and win over people you might not be able to otherwise. Either way, I think this topic belongs in another thread (you can link to it from here though, that's fine).

This is not the place, regardless of it's factual nature. Don't get so hung up on an idea. Let him him help you take it to an appropriate place to vent, you gotta "read the room." I don't wanna say anymore and contribute to the chaos, but I would like to help him chill out a bit. Yeah, life sucks and then you die. I know, there's a forum for that though, this is about The List.

Only a Sith deals in absolutes, Ross.

 

To get back on topic, I'd like to make a suggestion for the Big List. If it's possible and wouldn't be overly time consuming (I'm assuming this can be done automatically but I have no idea), could a button be added that filters only games Ross has given ratings? I expect those games to be the minority on the list, but it'd be nice to find them easily.

 

Wait, I'm stupid, the option already exists.

Sort By→Ross's Rating should do it for the moment. We did have buttons for the ratings, but Ross decided against it since the vast majority aren't rated.

Yeah, I figured it out. Made an edit to my post reflecting that. My bad.

This has to be troll bait at this point I think.

Why the fuck is this now a thing everywhere I go to? I say anything that anyone else has a problem with for any reason, and suddenly, for no discernible reason at all, I must be "baiting" and "trolling." Go fuck yourselves. You fucking dishonest pieces of shit.

Ok, so, every game already has a section which notes whether said game is a GaaSy fart of not (or if Ross doesn't know). Could we get a way to filter by GaaS status? This would be really relevant to people who'd want to play said games ASAP while they haven't been killed yet.

 

I, for one, am glad to have gotten the chance (and angry that I no longer can) partake in Nosgoth, as an example.

Yikes.

Like the saying goes: "If one person tells you you've grown a tail, laugh it off. If EVERYONE tells you you've grown a tail, you'd better look behind you."

Sounds like a Russian expression. I'm not sure why my brain leapt to Russian, but it did.

There's a lot I haven't checked, though I think the vast majority are not.  I only put yes or no if I'm totally certain.  I'll explain this process much more probably in the GaaS Fraud video followup.

Woah, this is awesome Ross, thanks! I think it would be really cool to do some kind of "book-club" style game conversation. Every month or so you could pick out a game from the list and those interested could buy it, play it, and then there could be a forum post where we discuss it. 

 

As always, Ross comes through and gives me something I never knew I wanted. This right here is why I've been a fan for so long.

You know, I really like that "pick out a game, have guinea pigs test it, then discuss it" idea. I figure if Ross likes the idea, he might toss it in the beginning of the monthly video chats with fans.

I don't think taking advantage of the forum users was his original idea, and anyway I'm pretty sure that, even if everyone loves the game, if he hates it, then it's off the list. I mean it's his list in the end. It's very subjective too.

My thought process is more along the lines of: Ross wants to play all of these games anyway, so he could let us know which game he plans on getting into and those of us who are interested in that game can also play it. I'm thinking more community engagement than being guinea pigs.

Yeah, I guess that's true, but I don't really see it as taking advantage of the forum users if they're okay with the idea themselves. I doubt Ross would be saying something like "Okay, your orders are to buy this and then talk about it. If you don't do it, I'm banning you from the forums." I see it as something probably only a minority of people would do, wouldn't take much effort on Ross's part (I'm assuming), and would be helpful in ascertaining whether a game is generally seen as good or not.

 

Regarding subjectivity, I get that. If that idea actually goes through and a lot of people are saying a game is good, it might make its way to the front of Ross's list of things to play. Could be a quicker way of getting ratings from him on certain things for future parties interested in certain titles?

 

I was just joking with the guinea pig line, guys.

Ah, I mean he would probably just play the game, no need to announce it, unless he plans on doing something specific with it (live streaming).

Otherwise, I would rather respect the guy's privacy, I think this might be a bit too much to be honest.

Sure, if that's what he'd prefer to do that's totally cool. It was just an idea for something I think would be a fun way to interact with the community as well as support developers. He reads the forums, so if he likes the idea then he can do something with it. If he doesn't like the idea then that's cool too.

If he's open to the idea, I guess he could just SMASH THAT RANDOM BUTTON   click the random button for game choice rather than pick something out specifically. Ross has been posting in this thread, so maybe we'll get his thoughts on the idea.

You know, I remembered a quote where he said he was stereotyped as a mad scientist, so maybe it hits a little closer to reality than I initially thought. /s

 

Also, yeah, like Fanatic said, it's fine if he doesn't go for it. I want to emphasize that I (and I assume pretty much everyone here) don't want to put pressure on Ross for anything since he seems to be monumentally busy working on the videos anyways. I need to stop making these edits after posting, I feel like it messes with people a bit when they quote something initially and then boop, more content to the post.
