What are your 'guilty pleasures'?

  • January 8, 2016 12:08 PM EST

    Everyone's a critic, but everyone also has some things that bypass that critical barrier. Like a bad movie you always enjoy watching.

    What are your guilty pleasures?

    *This was like 10th image in the Google search. I'm very lazy.

    I'll start off with the game that gave me the idea to make this thread: Life is Strange.

    I've been trying to decide what I really think about this game. I think it caught me at an opportune time since I was just coming off a few rogue-lites and was really looking for something that focused on emotion over everything, including plot consistency, story conveyance (it's very "tell, don't show"), strange dialogue, and some one-dimensional characters, apparently. Those are some big flaws and yet I'm not sure if it's badly written or not.

    However, I feel comfortable in saying it is effectively written. It knows the mindset it's appealing to and absolutely lives or dies on whether you're in that mindset. Most people think this game is either a masterpiece that nails the emotional tone and relatable characters or it's a horribly written mess with cringey dialogue and plot holes appealing to Tumblr bloggers.

    Wow I'm not alone!))) The Sims 3 is one of my favorite too, along with Skyrim and some old stuff like Silent Hill.

    People say that only dumb blondes play the Sims, don't know if it's only in Russia that they say so. Just like they say that only dumb blondes and teenage girls read Twilight, and I'm way too old to be considered one of the latter... Lol))

    Well it's becoming more and more of a norm, it's not as abnormal as other fetish stuff. Besides, if everyone was into the same thing then nobody would have a unique taste.

    What is normal in our world? Everyone is crazy in their own way)) As long as you know where the fantasy ends and reality begins, you are perfectly normal, no matter what you like to watch.

    i have nothing against the prequels as they created the greatist villian ever. And that is Jar Jar Binks

    No guilt on my part about loving the prequels. To be fair, they'd have to try hard to make a serious Star Wars movie I didn't like.

    I would say mine is pre-ordering games before (and some times in spite of) reviews/demos.

    Playing Overlord 2. This game is all about being the badass fantasy bad guy! I mean you can enslave or slaughter whole towns! You can literally club baby seals! You sacrifice your minons lives to create your gear!

    Yes it's a guilty pleasure for me because you commit  such evil deeds.....I could never club a baby seal......

    I hope you're not implying the 7th is somehow worse than the prequels. I've seen suicide bombers with a better sense of direction.
