I completely disagree, you should have a good reasoning behind your opinions and beliefs. If you don't have decent reasoning then that opinion/belief is not worth holding or defending. That doesn't mean one person is right because often multiple views are right and wrong simultaneously. It does mean that "it's my opinion" is a statement not worth respecting however.

That said the only exception is things that are matter of taste which obviously includes games. Because taste is unique to each person and nobody can tell you what you do and don't like. Which is why I can, for example, say I lost interest and was bored with Metroid Other M really quickly. If someone says "why?" I can say "because I just did" and that should be the end of it. If I can do that then people can do the same with Nintendo Land.

Let me rephrase that: You don't have to give reasons of your beliefs every time you express them.

I think everyone agrees on that, but you don't have to wear your heart on your sleeve every bloody time you give an opinion about something.

@CactusJackson @Aviator
I was criticising the assertion that beliefs/opinions don't need to be justified. I get really annoyed when people say "we'll I'm entitled to my opinion" because of how often it's used as an out for an indefensible position. You should have a damn good reason for your opinion otherwise it's an opinion not worth having. If you have no reason you should stand back and re-evaluate.

That said the reaction to the "no" a few pages back was ridiculous. You are right, you don't need to give a reason for your opinion every time you state it. With matters of taste especially as I said in my previous post because nobody else but you can tell you what you like. With the "no" a few pages back the question "why?" could have been reasonably answered with "because"....

I thought it was quite clear that the context of this discussion was subjective matters of taste.

Pizza, certain games etc etc. most people can support their opinion. Choosing not to in a casual discussion setting is fair game, and certainly not cause for harassment by other people in the discussion.

I think it's a very good game to come with the console, and better than Wii Sports, but not as accessible in some ways like others have said I suppose. I was just playing it. I just realized that the joysticks read to the camera moved by the gamepad, so if you're holding it vertically clockwise, the joysticks adapt the left movement as up. I also noticed that when moving the gamepad with text from statues, you can notice the smooth connection from the console to the gamepad thanks to very fast latency between the 2 devices. It really shows what the console is capable of in terms of visuals which are still impressive although they are very simplistic and only have a mainly bright color pallet, sound by remixing some tunes from Nintendo's big games, and control on the gamepad plus Wii remotes that are apparently still top-notch for control purposes.

I love NintendoLand!! I've had loads and loads of fun playing it with my friends and family; it's been MUCH more fun than Wii Sports. And I've also had a good time comparing high scores and stamps with some friends who don't live near me. Overall, I've been very satisfies with this game.

Ever hear the Monty Python sketch about the argument?
That's what yes/no answers with no support for their reasoning elicit - contradiction. (edit: or a poll )

Now CJ would not seem to be the anal-retentive of this thread had the question been 'open' to elicit reasoned responses.
It gets up my nose when people are right like that but what can you do?
(That could be an 'open' question in itself but I meant it rhetorically )

@CanisWolfenstein says me. I strike your bum of grumbleness with my haddock of sensibility...

No is an opinion that has as much value and kksliders or Cactus'.

Well...no, no it doesn't. Everyone has the right to their own opinion, but that doesn't mean that they are entitled to have it unquestioned by others. You don't have to back up your opinion if you don't want to - but if you don't, then don't expect to be taken seriously. Him questioning what someone else says is fine - it doesn't mean he's 'having a tantrum' or 'being a douche'. If someone has the arrogance to simply post 'No' to a question on a forum discussion board then he shouldn't be upset when he starts to be questioned or disputed. His response to that feedback is optional - if he doesn't want to discuss it any further then he simply stops replying, but don't expect no replies from others in the first place.

Why are we calling it arrogance when the topic title asks for a yes/no answer?

I would have assumed that's obvious given the phrasing of the question.

Yes, it was certainly a great launch title. All the attractions(for the most part) were fun and easy to control.
