Who Says You Can't Have Explosions And Relationship Building?

from the it's-all-about-the-story dept

Jimmy Guterman’s latest column at Business 2.0 looks at the question of whether or not the Sims Online is the anti-Grand Theft Auto when it comes to video games. Some people are saying that the two are virtual opposites, since one is about building relationships and one is about destroying things. He points out, first of all, that the Sims Online isn’t necessarily about building relationships, and GTA isn’t necessarily about destroying things. In the end, both games have good stories that involve people. That’s what makes them enjoyable, and that’s what makes them sell.

Re: Predictable

Ah… the troll is back. I assume you’re the same person who posted this a few months back.

Anyway, I’ll say the same thing I said then: if you don’t like the site, don’t come here. Plenty of people seem to like it.

Also, the site was never intended to post “obscure” news sources. I never said it would. I also think that, on the whole, the site does get a good variety of different sources, and acts as a filter for them so you don’t necessarily have to visit all those sites yourself.

Finally, the reason many of the news stories come from those sites is because they’re good. I’m checking a ton of different news sources every day, and these are the ones that consistently have the best stories.

But, you know all that already, don’t you. If you don’t like, don’t come here.
