I'm disappointed by how many games see a 7 out of 10 as a bad score. Just because your math teacher thinks you need a tutor if you get a 70% on your test doesn't mean the rest of the word needs to follow such bullcrap logic...

A seven can mean it can have a few reasonably large issues, but it's still enjoyable overall. These issues are of varying importance to people, so it makes since that they might see seven as a sub par score. If anything, it'll help me prioritize my purchases. :3

Except that would require reading the review, something I'm absolutely positive most of the people who complain about 7's don't do...

You might not want to check out TvTropes's 8.8 page then...

It does annoy me that games-wise, the scale is normalised so that 60-70 means ok to bad and anything 50 and under might as well be zero. It's the way the press has been made though, so I guess I've gotten used to it.

I just have to keep the faith that gamers don't make their purchases solely off review scores. I can rattle off a bunch of 7/10's which I enjoyed far more than some 10/10's, I'm sure everyone could.

It turns out the pastor's son I talked to about a month ago (who was really interested in getting a 3DS) is a CoD drone/graphics whore. We argued a good hour over that stupid franchise last night. Figures... :p

...I've decided I'm done with this "love" thing...
All of the work required... the heartache, the potential disappointment... everything... I don't want any of that. And it's all easily avoidable: just don't get started; don't get involved.
It's a long, hard road... and nobody's making you go down it. So I'm not going to. I couldn't even take the first step down that road.
That girl I like? She'll always be "that girl I like"... and just a friend.
The only thing that could ever sway me is if I ever met a girl, and we both instantly fell in love, and everything went smoothly - an incredibly unlikely event, at best.
So I'm done chasing a relationship. If a relationship wants to chase me, then so be it - but I'm finished.

Whew. And with that off my chest, I return to my usual goings-on...

And this is exactly why I avoided all that high school dating drama junk and never had a girlfriend up to this point at 18 years of age. If the right girl, whoever she may be, suddenly takes a fancy to me, then I'm all for it. But until then I'm perfectly content to remain alone and wait. Though at the same time I'd like to marry early, before I turn 30 at least.

things go wrong with this subject all the time, just remember if nothing is going wrong at all it might be a bad sign. and don't forget to not get too emotionally tied to a girl BEFORE things works out, if there's a chance that she doesn't feel the same for you be ready for things to go wrong and to move on after it so your heart won't be hurt too much. hope I could be helpful! :D

This song represents my stance on relationships pretty well:

@CapnPancakes: Yep, exactly. I realized "you know what? I don't have to do that if I don't want to". So although it is a bit of a disappointment, I actually feel better for it. :)

@Gioku I'm sorry to hear that. It sucks that's what it comes down to. It's for the best though. Messing around with love isn't really worth it at (I'm assuming) your age group. Too many variables and lack of experience. I wouldn't advise you to avoid it all completely, but definitely don't make it top priority. Honestly, all of the problems like that come from glorifying "love". It's not gonna be some magical thing, it's a struggle. You gotta try and that comes with risks. Just don't give up and definitely don't get too attached where you get hurt over it, not too quickly anyways. Baby steps buddy. You'll get there.

@CanisWolfred I agree wholeheartedly. A 7/10 is an exceptional score that too many gamers [and, sadly, developers] take for granted.

@GamecubeMan I probably don't, but I THINK I know the feeling. I hope it all worked out, man!

@GustavoSF That sounds rough. I hope you get Pokémon Y ASAP!

@WingedSnagret I hope you two still get along despite your different video game preferences.

Well, I'm sorry, but work, heartache and disappointment is just a part of life. It isn't something you can avoid, you'll have to face it again someday and you need to figure out how to deal with it. Quitting is not an option.

And it's all easily avoidable: just don't get started; don't get involved.

Trust me, bro, that heart thing inside of you will force you to get started and it'll make you get involved, whether you like it or not. It's just a simple fact of life.

It's a long, hard road... and nobody's making you go down it. So I'm not going to. I couldn't even take the first step down that road.

Look: just because you couldn't take that first step doesn't mean you should give up on the whole thing. There'll be other chances. Trust me.

That girl I like? She'll always be "that girl I like"... and just a friend.

I went through the very same thing (with a few differences but, for the most part, it's the same) I know that it hurts, I know you feel like she's out of reach right now, I know the emotional scars won't be going anytime soon, but it'll fade. Everything will be right as long as you have friends to help you through it like I did. Yes, she's "that girl you like" and she's just a friend but you've got to remember that anything can happen. Sure, your relationship may never go above friendship but, then again, you may also get married to her in the future. Either of those things could happen. I don't recommend that you count on things changing, just remember that things could change.

The only thing that could ever sway me is if I ever met a girl, and we both instantly fell in love, and everything went smoothly - an incredibly unlikely event, at best.

That's your problem. No relationship is gonna be like those whirlwind romances you see in the movies. That doesn't mean you won't have a healthy, happy relationship though. As long as you're real about it, you're bound to get lucky.

So I'm done chasing a relationship. If a relationship wants to chase me, then so be it - but I'm finished.

I actually have no problems with this part of the post. In fact: go ahead and do that.

Whew. And with that off my chest, I return to my usual goings-on...

I'm glad you got that off your chest, bro. It's not healthy keeping stuff pent up inside. I hope I helped.

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm probably not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

On a lesser important note, I read this on the Internet recently...

"Koopa Kid is retired." - Yasuyuki Oyagi

I'll miss the K. Kids. Not that they were that important anyways, but I'll miss them nonetheless. Will always remember the time when the generic K. Kid was playable in Mario Party 5 and 6. I will always remember him, Toad, and Boo being the newest additional characters to Mario Party 5. Good times.
