It’s a good game, you should definitely play it some more. Like I said above, the story doesn’t matter too much, unless you want to pursue it. Otherwise it’s all about just seeing what the computer throws at you and have fun.
I appreciate a good conversation, only with differing opinions do we grow our knowledge base due to the often lack of self-perception in this fast paced world. So yes, @MarioSpeedwagon, do you care to share a bit more about why you felt this game deserved such a negative commentary from your perspective?
@Fraggles, I was really stressing the gradual nature of evolution of language there above, nothing to do the immediate change just because someone decides to use it one way as opposed to the norm. That would definitely be a misuse.
I am perfectly okay with being serious. For a long time I voiced myself to be the Luddite and I refused to use the word “impact” as a verb. I repeated corrected people by telling them that they “search on Google” instead of “googling.” I told someone yesterday that “a couple” of weeks doesn’t equal a month, it equals two weeks. I was trying to tell someone who was saying “you know” to me a lot in conversation that, “no, I don’t know” because they were using that phrase as a filler instead of the actual meaning of those words. It’s frustrating as heck dealing with people who misuse certain terms without even thinking, just because their friend used it or their friend’s friend heard someone use it on the radio. Following a wrong doesn’t make it a right, but a long time of it leads to change.
Exactly like you said, language/words are important to preserve their integrity and meaning so that we can be accurate when communicating with each other. When it comes down to the boundaries of our thought as confined by words, but the words themselves have vague meaning due to misuse, we are looking at a whole world of potential trouble involving layers upon layers of miscommunication and misunderstanding. Imagine a spaceship launch and the engineers felt that they had a couple of weeks to work on fine tuning some errors scheduled the work into 3-4 week time frame, I can only think about the potential impending disasters.
Let me just clarify a little bit more about what happened above:
I saw your words “objectively wrong” above there, and the first image that came to mine was Mr. Trump. I wasn’t trying to use his face or the idea of “Fake News” to convey any meaning, but instead I was trying to be sarcastic and funny by implying that this guy, who is the representative figurehead of our current government, needs to use these two words strung together to argue against any headline that he dislikes in such a childish manner, when what he should be doing is paying attention to the facts and worrying about the well-being of the people. Thus I considered him the embodiment of “objectively wrong.” What ensued was I realized that my thoughts were clearly not conveyed in a reasonably meaningful way just by copying over a silly looking photo of his face with the two words on it. So I went back in to adding a couple of lines to express some more thought. But what my addition led to was seemingly a move away from the immediately above-mentioned topic and person. So I caused my confusion and potential for misunderstanding.
So in reality, this was probably the better thing I should have posted:
I am sorry to have perhaps caused some misunderstanding and undue stress with my lack of judgement and quick internet fingers. (It’s what I get for trying to get a quick response in in between necessary tasks while at work.)
I also hid my above-posted image just now.
