    It's not really weird that people steal bikes. They need transport and there is nothing in stock in the stores.

    That guy should wear a helmet though so he's prepared for the next random encounter.

    Man, this whole thing with ME3 has spawned some type of awesome meta-commentary regarding how people perceive the artistic process really.

    If I had a shop full of items that could be used to save the world, I'd do it my own damn self.

    I'm interested in the articles about how this indicates gamers don't really think games are art.

    You don't demand that an artist change its art.

    Plus, you'd expect more than one band of heroes to giving it a go.

    I mean, now that I think about it, the final boss's dungeon should always be strewn with the corpses of well-meaning heroes who had the exact same idea you did.

    Yeah, I can understand being mad at an ending, but insisting that the ending be changed is fucking weird to me, and my gut reaction is to call them all a bunch of entitled crapbags.

    during the war, my relatives and their neighbours wouldn't sell wood to the germans in Haugesund nearby

    so the germans found a guy to buy it for them and when they found out about that they just stopped chopping wood

    so the germans sent some soldiers into the valleys to chop some wood and they were quartered in among others my relatives' house

    radios were of course forbidden by the germans during the war, but the germans had a radio, and one of the soldiers let my uncle listen to BBC while they were out

    that soldier always took care to get back earlier than the rest and ensure that the dial was in the place where they had left it


    that is my story about quartering

    I don't think it's that shocking that people can get away with small crimes that only take a couple of minutes to commit.

    I'm not going to stage a citizen's arrest just to save someone's bike.

    Again: this is really a thing people only say when they haven't played through the game yet.

    Also: a painting is not a novel is not a movie is not a video game.

    People aren't demanding things. They're voicing their opinion that the ending is really badly written. Not that it's "not what they wanted". It's just that - bad.

    Art changes all the time. Blade Runner's Directors Cut has a very different ending to the original and ME3's ending in particular has some interesting writing nuance surrounding it (namely: not the product of the whole writing team in the first place, apparently).

    Let's say I'm reading a book, and the writer is really good at describing battles and politics and people's emotions. But then there's a sex scene, and it's painful to read. Overembellished, metaphorical references, the lot.

    I might at that point, say that that writer needs to work on their sex scenes.

    Now replace sex scenes with 'endings'.

    ...and of course, as always, Kill Hitler.

    No, when you're donating to a charity to get the ending changed, that's being an entitled crapbag. It's fine to not like things from things you love, but there's a limit. My generation is incredibly entitled, we are our parent's children.
