    I don't play mmorpgs because I don't want to become addicted and spend a ridiculous amount of hours into them. I figure, I'm already addicted to things like transformers, tv shows, other games... plus I am intimidated by the vastness of giant worlds.

    Also I probably hold a grudge on mmos since in the past, I've had a friend who let me wait for 30 minutes outside his apartment when he was supposed to let me in. But he was so into his game, and just told me to go home after I told him how long I was waiting. He later apologized.

    And another incident, my girlfriend at the time was about to leave for the military. So we only had a short amount of time together before she had to leave. It was valentine's day, and she just out of the blue tells me that she has to go play Ragnarok Online. I was so furious and insulted. Just watching people I care about become so sucked into these games... such a downer... and I know not all mmo gamers are like that.

    I feel bad for the star ocean series.... Originally, it was supposed to end at the last Hope, but they decided to make a new game.... because. I really don’t like star ocean 3, 4, and 5 mainly because they suck. It’s impressive that each installment became more anime. I’d rather play the bad tales of games than those 3 star ocean games.

    Unless they have a strong secondary typing to supplement them, Dark and Poison Pokemon are on the lower end of the typing totem pole.

    There are a few types that I find useless: Bug, Normal, Poison, Ghost, and (for the most part) Dark. I don't find Dragon very useful either.

    I almost never have Pokémon of these types in my party, unless, like you said, they have a useful secondary type. I much prefer to have one or two moves of these types among my party Pokémon, and that's usually sufficient.

    I used to think Psychic was useless too, but I changed my view on that when I recently replayed Sapphire and Girafarig became an absolute powerhouse. I taught him Shadow Ball, and between that and the move Psychic, he could mow down anyone in his path :D 

    And, I've made an exception for Absol (dark type). I fell in love with it during Sapphire and usually kept it in my party just because it's so damn cool-looking, despite not being as useful as some other options. :D  Just got an Absol in Pokémon White, and I'm doing the same thing. He's actually pretty useful against Psychic types, due to Psychic moves having no effect on him.

    I agree with that. Purely non elemental Pokemon just aren't that great and need a lot of help with dual typings and training and the right movesets. Otheriwise they fall by the wayside. I'm not fond of bug, normal can only keep up with the group for so long, dragon isn't as strong as I was initially led to believe, fairy have too few new mon and have been shoehorned onto older ones for no good reason and fighting, ghost and psychic are a mixed bag.

    Flying is pretty good though and I do love ice despite all their...issues. Grass has too many probs for me to fully embrace, but there's some good ones out there. Don't care for most rock and steel. Ground I like within reason.

    I think Bug is a bit worse than poison. At least poison can, well, poison!

    Freelancer was underappreciated genius, and while what we got was pretty good it woulda been truly Epic Space Game if Microsoft hadn't made 'em cut out like half the original concept.

    Does that mean it would explode when you turned it on?

    I really hate "Season passes" that have special items,Maps,weapons etc.

    Example (Yes I know it's old): In COD WW2 if you got the season pass it will unlock 2 bonus maps I recall but if you buy all the Map packs separately like me,it won't unlock those bonus maps whatsoever. Same thing in Tekken 7 for Customizing your character,it won't unlock if you didn't buy the season pass. Really annoying bc I can't front the $50 or so for a season pass after buying the damn game for around $60 already. I've asked Activision before and they said it's a season pass exclusive EVEN IF I ALREADY BOUGHT ALL THE DLCS/MAP PACKS.!

    RANT MODE: (OFF) ON

    @Venixion Even dumber is that I play Offline most the time (Gaming on a budget) against Bots in most COD games and it doesn't unlock all the weapons at all. I totally understand playing online ranking and unlock better weapons but for Offline who gives when it's against Bots lol. The thing that pisses me off is that all these special Maps,Weapons Skins are already in the game but it's locked bc of no Season Pass B's.

    Mario games are rubbish. There. I said it. I spent 8 years pretending to at least be sort of neutral about them, but now enough time has passed that I can freely admit that I really, really don'y like Mario games as I find them bland and uninteresting.

    I mean, that's even before we get to the fact that you're playing as a wee fat plumber with a 70's porn-star mustache.
