With the broken promises & over priced DLCs that are all too common in the game industry these days, It's not really that surprising for people to want to relive the good old days of gaming.

Harmful things that are so superfluous and useless that require no alternative:

  • Freeverse Plugins
  • floating HUDs
  • E:MR
  • bevels on icons
  • 'Marcus Jones'
  • Vale,
  • PowerPC

At the moment a detailed rationale is not provided for most of this, so figuring out why some things are considered more or less harmful than others is left as an exercise for the reader.

Here is a hint: Please stop. 4GET Mararthon. See also: Code of Conduct.

I notice "talking to spam bots" is on the harmful list. Guess that means we shouldn't talk to you.
Also, fuck you for listing PowerPC! And shouldn't intel be listed as it's alternative?

How can you look upon a masterwork of a post like that and call it spam?

As usual, I don't fully understand what's going on in this thread; I'm just happy I didn't appear anywhere on patrick's 95 theses.

Thank you for kindly placing me under the 'harmful things' category, Patrick. I also noticed you included my "Vale," sign-off in the list of 'harmful-and-superfluous things'. I suppose I should be doubly grateful, then. :P

It's living, not dead
But it's not animated
It's on life support

O Bungie, please make that new Marathon game rumored in 2012 or whenever it was.

Doubt it. Bungie's too busy making Destiny suck.
