Agreed, what matters more is the style and setting, I mean not every movie/TV series from Japan is anime right?

It's not reasonable to even roleplay as Nazis, and that shouldn't be an excuse

Correction. Coffee > Tea.


Games with political undertones like Deus Ex, MGS, and Fallout are more interesting and engaging to play.
The Avant-Gardist State of Patagonia ~~~ Gauchos and Mapuches, orgies and parties, avant-garde art, futurism, syndicalism, the New Man, general strikes, the glorification of violence, spiritual nationalism, esoteric occultism, CIA spooks, Spartanian homosexuality, public sodomy, and more
    Triomphe du Surréalisme (1968)
  • There are many things said about Patagonia but few actually know what goes on behind the Andes mountains. Tales of human depravation and man's inner darkest self run wild. A place where avant-garde culture flourish and the artist don't fear the censor. Where all live bold and free under the gaze of the Patron. Yet all dreams will come to an end soon...
  • Not expecting an essay. Just a couple of sentences that shows that you know my work well enough

No. A political Undertone can be in a good game, definately! Fallout is my favorite Game Series but I disown 3,4, and 76, and it's absolutely loaded with political undertones. But you can have exceptions on both sides. You can have games like Detroit Become Human that are frankly terrible in every way other than graphical, because they focused more on their awful overdone undertone than making an engaging story. You can also have absolutely amazing games, like Earthbound or Rimworld, which is personally my favorite game ever, which have vastly differing themes and stories, but both are masterpieces and lack a real political agenda. Having a political undertone should be done to serve your story. It does not make the story better.

I haven’t had a Poptart in a long time, but I seem to recall that being true. It’s the flavor of the best cereal.


That said, blueberry is an entirely underrated flavor. Blueberry lemonade, blueberry candycanes, blueberry lollipops… Hard to find.

Disagree. Blueberry-flavored food is indeed rarer, but that is not an underrating but a basically-right-rating.

i.e. blueberries don't taste good

agree. i pretty much feel the same in general but total escapism is also perfectly acceptable and even to be encouraged

whatever you think about unionized labor, threatening to make attempts on non-union workers' or their family members' lives (or actually doing so, as happened throughout the 1990s) or doing other Bad Things to their kids is... not justifiable (see: the 1998 UAW case).
