    Ha ha, thanks!

    I've grown to really be able to pinpoint and articulate exactly how I feel about certain games, Zelda especially. I really can't understand how people can deny that the series has gradually progressed to a certain end of a spectrum that is fundamentally different from what the series used to be. Whether or not people prefer the modern philosophy of the series is a matter of preference, but the difference is there plain as day.

    But yeah, my tastes in video games are actually more varied than I can sometimes lead people to believe. The thing with me is that once a game classifies itself to be of a certain type or genre, or to be a certain franchise, I expect a certain degree of standards, I guess you could say, for it. If a game is purporting to be an action-adventure game, there's a certain richness in scale involved in that that the game can fail to reach.

    And especially with Zelda, which originally found fame based on the "vast" freedom it offered players and the ability to explore at one's leisure. To see a game today that fundamentally goes against everything that the series once embraced is irksome to say the least. I still have some hope in Zelda Wii U, as A Link Between Worlds was a modest throwback to classic Zelda, but we'll see.

    My overall video game stance these days is varied, as I said already, but I can usually pick out if a game is going to bring me enjoyment or if certain features will irritate me or not. I guess I've just gotten good at that as I've been playing games for years and years. I'll definitely check out that forum, as I'm sure they'll point me to some games very much like what you and I look for in Zelda.

    Nintendo is... weird lately. I think that's the best way to put it lol. They still have a certain spark to them that shows up once in a while, but overall the company is the most devoid of variety and scope I think I've ever seen it. I suppose some of it is understandable, considering how disastrous the Wii U has been. But this year, especially with what they announce at E3, is going to be a major test for Nintendo I feel in where they're headed in future years. They have potential for some tricks up their sleeve, but I can also very well see them remaining in their little bubble with another 3D Mario, another cartoony Zelda, and then relying on Mario Kart and Smash Bros for the entire year. And that would be a trainwreck.

    If corporations can be people, why can't definitions?

    Saying that you need a penis to be male is extremely transphobic. Hmmm, Chrome doesn't recognize that as a word. Chrome doesn't recognize cisgender either, so I guess it all balances out.

    I guess the definition isn't discriminatory by itself, just by how it's used. Let's go back to the thread now.

    I see these "academic" definitions, if that's even what they are, the same way I see Plessy v. Ferguson with discrimination being considered separate but equal.

    You can make a definition heavily biased. I'll do it try now. To be considered a person, you need to be white. If you're not white, you're a reverse person or a person of color.

    Are these definitions even called academic definitions? Can we at least agree that they're heavily biased?

    We can go back to my thread if we actually talk about what we're supposed to be debating. I already made a post there to get the discussion back on track. We can our semantical discussion here.

    Check out the title of this citation: "Only White People can be Racist" Things like that really piss me off. When someone says, "Evolution is just a theory," they would be wrong if they were using the "layman's" definition, which I think is synonymous with a hypothesis. However they would be correct if they were using the "academic" definition, because it has the evidence criteria. Does that mean that academic definitions are more proper, and thus should be preferred? In that case, the GEC is actually right.

    There should be a difference between when academia saying that my hypothesis that Santa Claus lives on the moon is not considered a theory versus when academia says that a black man beating a white man to death because he is white is not considered racism, I don't think the problem is that both words have extra criteria for their academic definitions, it's that sexism and racism were given the privilege component, which itself is based on the assumption that people who have privilege are better off.

    One last thought, can President Obama be racist?

    When I don't understand a word, I go on Google and search "define sexism." Of course, you wouldn't find a definition with a systemic institution component unless you search for a long time.

    Can you give me a list of words that have a completely different meaning in an academic context? The reason why I'm against anyone using the academic definitions of sexism and racism is because they can actually harm people when used the wrong way, which will inevitably happen.

    Anyway, I'm done discussing the validity of these definitions. Let's go back to the thread and discuss the pros and cons of them.
