Re: Baseball in Decline?

The CTE issue is something that MMA should have to worry about as well. Boxing's decline, in my opinion, started well before that became an issue, but seeing Muhammad Ali in the opening ceremony to the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 was certainly eye opening to the dangers of boxing, and now football. I m...

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

A theory I've read is that Broom Boy and Rey's 'You are noboby special' heritage is a change to better align the movie's heroes to more modern culture in reducing the importance of heritage. The problem with that is it replaces it with being chosen by Fate instead. Who is strong in the Force. We see...

Re: Baseball in Decline?

As a boxing fan, I have watched that sport decline until in America to a lower position than soccer...or curling. Nascar is also experiencing a dcline. Home tvs may be a factor across the board. Or maybe Millenials want different entertainment - more scoring, more action, more adrenaline, less suspe...

Can video games be adapted into good movies

Read an article on this https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/entertainment/video-game-movies/?utm_term=.efa2743fb36c It says there have been 35 major attempts, and none have done better than 50% on rotten tomatos In brief, it says story is the most important factor, but it has to have a plot...

Re: VGC Pro Nintendo?

I have been following your site for probably a decade. I don't sense you are slanted toward any one company. After all, you have reviews for pretty much ever system imaginable.

Re: VGC Pro Nintendo?

Eh... I don't think you are pro-Nintendo. If anything you seem to be pro-offline for your consoles. Which company offers the most reasonable offline experience? Nintendo... However this (to me) explains why you have grown more in favor of Nintendo over the years, not because of the company themself...

Re: Nintendo Ruined Video Games

The central idea is that Nintendo sustained video gaming in the American culture by cementing it as a toy. Its a weak argument to me Video games always flowed into both adult and juvenile paths. Handhelds like Mattel Football and consoles like the 2600 were in the toy area in catalogs, not electroni...
