I almost want to ask people "have you ever tried death?. You can't say much about it unless you've tried it, because I know how batshit crazy that sounds, but that's what "you can't say shit unless you've touched it with two thumbs" sounds to me, as if using those things called eyes and ears aren't something you can use already to determine is something is good or not, let alone the tongue or nose for smelling and tasting.
I can't believe in all my years that I had to actually mention something so glaringly basic, on a site like this.
Imagine ignoring all of history, because it's easy to access and view for everyone to see, but because you didn't take part in a specific era of history, you don't get to judge the rest of history, like for real, that sounds completely fucking asinine and stupid.
It's a game for crying out loud. You saying that there isn't a difference of emotion to be had from experiencing something first hand rather than reading about it?!! unbelievable...
Well you can watch the game on Youtube. Its like if someone reads a book to you, then you cant have an opinion on the book because you didnt read the book yourself?
