    "The Big Lebowski" is one of the most overrated films of all time

    in Movies Discussion, last active on on 07 May 2014

    *Obviously sensationalist title intended to boost views and gamrpoints. **No spoilers in the OP, although future posts may have them** Short Story: I'm dissapointed with the movie and confused about the fans of the movie. A lot of people have told me that this movie was one of the funniest, most well-made films ever, but that alone is not why I'm confused. Normally, I would ignore such praise...

    Do the fortunate have a moral obligation to help the unfortunate?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 04 May 2014

    We talked about Peter Singer and his opinions on charity in my class the other day, and I thought he made some pretty interesting comments regarding morality. I was wondering what the wise men of VGChartz thought about his position. A brief summary of his argument is as follows: Suffering and death from lack of food, shelter, and medical care (i.e. poverty) are bad. If it is in our...

    Playstation All Stars is no longer a flop

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 07 May 2014

    The game would flop, they said. The game was too average, they said. The game's launch was too poor, they said. The game would never sell a million units, they said. The game would be a MAJOR flop, they said. I tried to tell them to wait and that the game could still put up respectable numbers. But they didn't listen. So I waited... But now the time has come to speak up and face the...

    Do you believe in objective morality?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 14 February 2014

    Let me define objective morality. By "Objective", I mean the opposite of "subjective." So when I say “Objective morality”, I mean morality that's independent of people’s (including one’s own) opinion. So if there is objective morality, then certain things are right or wrong, regardless of human opinion or knowledge. It has nothing to do with what humans think. For example,...

    Do you also have semi-disturbing or potentially immoral thoughts/beliefs?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 03 February 2014

    And I don’t mean random, temporary thoughts that you immediately dismiss upon their introduction. I’m talking about deeper, persistent, relatively prolonged episodes of your consciousness. Let me elaborate. For me, they aren’t solidified enough to influence my actions, so I wouldn’t say they’re a part of my beliefs. However, they also aren’t temporary or...

    I just realized I'm a boring person

    in General Discussion, last active on on 14 January 2014

    I have always believed I was a fairly interesting person. I always knew I didn’t appear interesting to others on the surface, and that I just seemed average. But I always believed that was because I never really tried to be interesting. I thought that if I actually put in the effort to do so, I could appear interesting to at least some people. Whenever I put substantial effort into...

    Important Questions for ioi

    in General Discussion, last active on on 29 December 2013

    I have a few important questions for ioi that need to be answered. Yes, I know I could leave a wall post on ioi's wall to ask these questions, but he never responds to his wall posts, so I would rather not waste my time. So I decided to make this thread so everyone on the chartz could ask ioi their most important questions. I'll go first...If ioi answers these questions, my life will be...

    Should probability invalidate responsibility?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 12 December 2013

    Suppose a bakery is about to close for the night, but there is one customer remaining. This customer wants a cake. The shop has 100 cakes in stock, but one of the cakes is rotten and can cause illness. The baker has closely examined each cake and has found that it's impossible to determine which cake is rotten. He determines that it's extremely unlikely that he will sell the rotten cake, so he...

    I don't know if I can handle the shift in power in the industry

    in General Discussion, last active on on 04 December 2013

    Everyone has their personal primary reasons to visit this site. I assume most people come because they're interested in the sales and/or discussing games. Those used to be my primary reasons for visiting as well. However, after over three years, I have found that my interests have changed. I enjoy the website mostly when comedy is involved or when Iím debating with someone else. I find I donít...

    Give me a quote of someone criticizing guns

    in General Discussion, last active on on 23 September 2013

    Basically, I need someone saying guns are bad or that we get guns too easily. I need a quote for a paper I'm writing. I know a lot of you guys are really informed about everything anyone says about guns, so I figured this would be my best source.  The more recent the quote, and the more famous the person is, the better. Go!...

    Mods always disrupting interesting discussions

    in General Discussion, last active on on 02 August 2013

    Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me? It seems like every time a thread really gets interesting, the mods lock the thread and/or prohibit future discussion of the interesting topic. Usually it occurs when someone gets called out on their shit as a user. Admittedly, sometimes these “discussions” become heated and offensive, and thus they should be locked. But sometimes they...

    Guilty Pleasures of VGChartz

    in General Discussion, last active on on 30 July 2013

    Guilty Pleausres. Everyone has them. Those secret sources of enjoyment that are considered distasteful by others on the site. Some of those pleasures will be met with laughter, others with genuine intrigue, and still others with downright disgust. But that’s a part of what makes everyone an individual. So don’t be shy. Come in and share. I’ll start. Copycat Threads I’m...

    Argument from nonbelief

    in General Discussion, last active on on 08 August 2013

    I'll keep it short and post a short version of the argument from Wikipedia: 1. If no perfectly loving God exists, then God does not exist.2. If a perfectly loving God exists, then there is a God who is always open to personal relationship with each human person.3. If there is a God who is always open to personal relationship with each human person, then there no human person is ever...

    Will robots ever deserve rights?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 17 July 2013

    A lot of people believe that a person with consciousness deserves certain rights, no matter the circumstances. If consciousness or intelligence seems to be the decider of individual rights, will sufficient advancement in these aspects give robots rights too? Before continuing, we need a definition of consciousness so we are on the same page. I have provided one in the next paragraph (from...

    What do you guys think of the new Miley Cyrus?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 17 July 2013

    Remember the apparently sweet and clean Disney star with the long brown hair, Miley Cyrus?   Well, that that person is dead now. Here is her new look: Check out her new video: And here is her twerking at a Juicy J concert.   Do you approve of this new Miley Cyrus? Is this the start of a more mature miley, or is it the start of her...

    If a second conscious head grew out of your shoulders, should you have the right to chop it off?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 08 July 2013

    Let me paint out a plausible scenario! The year is 2245. One day Adam is at his local convenience store and he discovers a new flavor of juice. Of course he buys it because he likes to live on the wild side. Before drinking the juice, he reads the label and it reads: “Upon consumption, there is a moderate chance that a second conscious head will grow out of your shoulders” Adam...

    Why do Sony Bros dominate the internet?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 28 June 2013

    It's a well known fact that the entire internet is biased to Sony and the Playstation. This can be seen by asking any reasonable* internet user. But has anyone ever wondered why this is the case? *If a "reasonable" person doesn't agree that the internet is biased to Sony, then that person is not reasonable afterall. I mean, let's think about it. Throughout the entire 7th generation,...

    Does this site cause you emotional or mental harm?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 28 June 2013

    I have never understood how people can become so distraught over what faceless people on this site say. I can understand finding users annoying or irritating, but no further than that. The idea of experiencing any level of emotional pain because of a forum is frankly absurd to me. There's no reason to lose control over someone who has no affect on your real life. If someone really is being...
