Ari_Gold: Opinions aren't free from attack if they aren't based on reality. If you base your opinion on something entirely wrong, odds are that opinion is wrong and can be questioned, attacked, mocked etc. For instance, if you read the FF7 thread, I had an opinion questioning the quality of FF7's story, and there were some opinions based on incorrect facts, which were mocked and I admitted I was wrong on. I also swore at the person I was talking with, but that's because I'm... well, a dick.
Something that always bothers me is the phrase "It's just my opinion, you can't say its wrong", because that is not true in many cases. Particularily when the topic is barely subjective at all.
So thus, here is what I present. You called it shovelware. Shovelware as generally defined is something quickly put on a console with little care or regard for quality. A joint in house project with Nintendo supervised by Shigeru Miyamoto struggles to fit that definition. Fun? Opinions will differ. Shovelware? Retardation. You can feel free to defend your point and explain just what you're basis your shovelware comment on, and if it's intelligent, I will absolutely apologize to you, as you have made me look like an idiot, but I welcome that. Until then, you earned it. Wear your cap with pride, and defend yourself, or scamper off
