Its a Shenmue board, with an active VG forum. We all came here out of a genuine liking for one game in particular, and its on that basis that we share at least 1 common interest which we can all use as some sort of foundation to get along. From this, there should exist, a minimum level of respect for each other, and not see it get torn apart by opinions. Personalities can be as crazy as they want to be, and debates as fierce as a they come. But all must happen with an element of respect for everyone else involved here. Once that goes, then yes, the place is getting torn apart. But when that happens, everyone should well know that their time being welcomed here will become extremely limited.

I see your point of view. Mine is merely that maybe it's when the world hates us most that the need for us to send back out our love is all the more essential.

^Well said. It's ok not to like what someone posts but at the end of the day we don't truly know one another. Clint said it best once when he said you never really know someone personally online since they can be someone different it real life. On that basis no one should 'hate' an individual.

Hate shouldnt exist at all. I dont hate a single thing in my life. Nothing at all. Hate, for me, is an element of someones personality who has a deep and emotional imbalance within themselves. I aint a Hari Krishna, banging tambourines going on about love, but hate?? Christ lifes too short man. Move on to something else if you feel hated for something.

Like I said in another topic. hate is a secondary and useless emotion. Fine to be passionate and have strong opinions. But hatred? It's stupid and pathetic.

Mine is that this world is just an illusion rooted in hate for the transcendental. Breaking this illusion doesn't have anything to do with the state of your mind. The mind and the body - those are just tools to strengthen the illusion of this world. That's why you can understand everything and still be a worthless human being. There are things emanating from outside of this world, things that can be called 'love', 'compassion', but it's not really about simple human-created words and dichotomies. Hate can be a part of the transcendental as a spiritual guideline for the wickedness of this world. It can be of the same positive qualities as the so-called 'love'. Existence in flesh means that you are bound to make mistakes when affiliating your imprisoned soul with the illusive realm.

I'm the last to treat anything from this world seriously. After all, "In a mad world, only the mad are sane."

Remember when the arguing on here used to be entertaining? I couldn't even be arsed readin all of that. You all need to stop bein so boring and post something legitimately funny if you're gonna bash eachother. At least then it's a little more acceptable.

Oh, and btw Dorian, I'm the only person on this planet who's right 100% of the time, and I disagree with the above post. Therefore, you are wrong.

But I will still beat your ass in VF5FS.

BTW, I just heard that Wii U Zelda is coming in 2014 and it will be the biggest Zelda game ever made. It reminded me that I still wasn't able to get Skyward Sword.

Don't care. I'd beat your arse on Assassin's Creed: Revelations. And irl too. Unless you turn out to be an alternate account belonging to Clint, of course.

Assassin's Creed is shit. Real men play VF5FS. And gays too.

I do, and will, hate. Hatred is just as important as love, in my opinion. As long as my hatred is rational, then I can use it to better my judgement. Just as someone might spend their whole life with someone they love, they also spend their whole life avoiding those that they hate.

The artificial laugh killed it.

Her hat is awful, especially with that top.
