Browsing the forums recently, I’ve noticed that not wanting to admit when they are wrong is a common issue for many. It’s perfectly understandable, after all, this is the Internet and proving complete strangers you are right comes at the top of the list, next to posting pictures of your food and hating on popular stuff to be “different”.
To some, admitting a mistake is a sign of weakness and they would rather try to twist the past around and argue endlessly than to stoop to saying “I was wrong”. For my part, I’d argue the opposite, it shows strength of character to recognize you missed the mark and I have huge amounts of respect for users who own up to mistakes or are able to say “you have a point” from time to time. It makes me more eager to have discussions with them because I know I’m not talking in vain, that they’re actually listening, that they want to move the discussion forward instead of just wanting to “win” this round.
Since I do think VGChartz is better than most places on the Internet, I think we’re mature enough to realize there’s nothing wrong with being wrong. So I propose we all go ahead and list some instances where we wrong.
I’ll start the ball with some of mine:
I used to dismiss all FPS as bland grey-brown interchangeable experiences and said that I would never be interested in them. Now, I’ve got over 400 hours played in Overwatch, I loved Doom 2016 and Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite are among my favorite games ever. - I was wrong. (Racing sims still suck)
I remember arguing with Seece about how Grand Theft Auto V could never pass the sales of Mario Kart Wii - I was about 20 million copies wrongLast edited by TruckOSaurus - on 23 February 2018
