Not liking something is the 2nd most boring opinion you can have about it. by Fullofkittens 05/12/2021, 8:36am PDT
The most boring opinion being that you don't know about it/haven't seen it/haven't heard it/never tried eating it or whatever.

I'm not saying that people have to go back and watch every movie they've never seen, I just don't need to hear: that you won't watch movies from before 1990, or that you are doing keto so you don't eat noodles, or that you think techno isn't music because they don't play instruments. These statements are not even opinions, they're just boring facts about people who aren't curious.

"That thing sucks" is only slightly less boring. You know what else sucks? ALMOST EVERYTHING. 99% of everything is bad. That's why you have to cast a wide net. That's why MM and pinback provide a valuable service by curating games for us. Somebody asked for hot takes in this thread and people immediately responded with the weakest takes imaginable. The only way I could make a take less spicy than "I don't like open world games" would be for me to shock (!!!!!!!) you all by saying I've never played one and don't intend to*.

*(Which would not have been true about open world games, but would be true about, say...sports simulations??? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?)

Not liking opera is not a hot take. Most people don't like opera. I could make you a long, long list of things I don't like because I dislike almost everything. You should find that uninteresting.
