-If you have to acquire a taste for something, it doesn't taste good, and you're silly for continually consuming it (most things will seem to taste 'less disgusting' if you continually consume them)

-Way too many young modern day 'chefs' are wayyy too arrogant, and ruin eating by adding their need for emotional validation, and spend way too much time on visual presentation, when no matter what you do it's gonna wind up brown and as a log.

-Eating other foods or visiting other countries doesn't make you refined, worldly or cultured. It just means you've eaten other foods, and were a tourist in another country.

-Telling other people they are less cultured or worldly bc they haven't been where you've been or eaten what you've eaten proves that you are uncultured. If you have to think about it........

-'Culture' as a whole usually refers to 'how long have people who look like you and talk like you been living here, and how much old clothing and old dancing do you remember? Culture (the term today) seems to be used as just be a way to brag about dead people, while putting down others who don't have as many or the right dead people.

@standardplayer I agree with all of those except the first one. But, that's ok. Different people have different opinions, and we can learn a lot from eachother, even gain new insight by listening to others

I suppose these days that is an unpopular opinion :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw:

  • Bacon is horrible
  • The best pizza topping is pineapple
  • Unless you drive a BMW, you don't know how to drive and you're going too slow and just get out the bloody way (might be popular depending on the population of BMW drivers here XD )
  • Spiders and tarantulas are adorable
  • Nutella is DISGUSTING

This is agreeable on many levels!

Here's one for ya: I don't like how people keep wanting to get their favorite characters in Smash Bros.

Wishing to have them there is one thing, but PLEASE, stop pressuring the developers to include your characters just because you think it would be cool. We don't need more Ridleys ruining everything!

The Fate franchise is a plague that should not exist, along with the rest of the industry that tried to follow their footsteps.

Secondly, virtual youtubers are hot garbage that does not produce any meaningful content whatsoever.

Moe sucks. (Not as in the Simpsons character, but the style known as such)

Oreos are nasty and anyone that likes it as an ice cream flavor are not only an overbearing psychopath but need to realize that you call it by the brand name, not the contents.

It's Oreo ice cream, not Cookies and Cream.
You wouldn't call Snickers ice cream "Caramel Chocolate Bar with Peanuts Ice Cream" would you?

My fav unpopular opinion:
Graphics are a central part of video games, and are perhaps the biggest defining factor that sets a 'video' game apart from any other kind of game. Saying they aren't important doesn't make you sound woke, it makes you sound like a poseur. (Like saying the Joker is the best comic book villain, but never thinking or saying that before Dark Knight/Ledger's death)

EDIT: To paint it in another light, imagine saying the board in board games isn't important XD

I find it funny that this is an "unpopular" opinion at all, considering how easily humans judge based on cover, and people actually be like "hey look at this ugly mess it's better than that beautifully polished game with actual art/graphics direction". :rswt

@CraneSoft well you know, we all gotta seem refined, woke, deep, you gotta seem at least one of those or better XD

I dunno, for me, i remember a lot of 'pop culture conscious shifts' like this, we as a race can bs ourselves, even en masse, and kind of just....act like we arent full of it. To the point where we forget.

Here is mine for you all :

People suck and are not the morally perfect know-it-alls that have all the power and knowledge in the world and they are usually wrong about pretty much everything.

Here is another :

Normal people (read those ppl that follow the norm and status quo) have never and will never change the world in any meaningful way.

Ofcourse as always im wrong anyway so... Yeah xD

@standardplayer When I say graphics don't matter, what I really mean is a game's graphics don't need to be super pretty, hyper realistic 3D. There's a difference between graphics and art direction, and I think people, including myself, just use art and graphics interchangeably.

There's a fair few games I can't stand because the art puts me off; the vast majority of indie games that use those ugly, blocky, poorly defined sprites, for example. So, I fully agree with you that art matters. If I can't stand the sight of your game, I won't enjoy it. Art is a huge part of a game for me.

@The Stranger maybe its just the way you're wording it, but did you somehow think i was referencing you with this post? I don't remember having any discussion like this specifically with you.

The people im referring to are the people that say graphics dont matter, that its all about the story, or the gameplay, or some other iteration of 'graphics dont matter'.
(As if saying graphics DO matter is saying gameplay or story doesn't). The ones who wouldnt ever have that opinion if there was no one around to hear them say it

@standardplayer No. I just wanted to talk about the topic of graphics not mattering. lol.

I fully agree with you about graphics\art mattering. Looks matter regardless of how much we pretend they don't. :p

Lol sorry if I sounded stiff or anything, ive said before i am remarkably unintelligent, sometimes when i read things i have to ask my wife to make sure its saying what i think it is.
Needless to say, she was asleep for this one so i couldnt ask lol.

I think its a very unpopular opinion here. It was *discussed* recently here, but i see a lot of fear and worry in the responses when it comes up. It doesn't manifest that way, but I do believe it comes from those baser instincts

Sometimes games that are new..... Are worse

I really hate persona 5. Persona 2 is my favorite and persona 3 is okay. Persona 4 I don't like that much but I hate cannot STAND persona 5.

I feel the same way about PSO. I LOVE the og pso games but PSO2.... I'm not a fan

No hard feelings if u like these games btw, I have a lot of friends who do. I'm just hella salty about them

I just kinda feel like a lot of newer games are trying too hard to pander to the kind of people I don't like.

...Also I spent all day trying to figure out how I had suddenly messed it up and made it start dropping frames like crazy. So I had all day to look at it... mocking me... with it's previous 60fps reduced to 30fps... At least it's fixed now.
