    I didn't play Ocarina of Time very long (I got the 3DS remake, played through two dungeons, and determined that I apparently just don't like 3D Zelda games), but Navi never once annoyed me. In fact, in my time with Navi I felt like she was a fun partner. Maybe I just want to have a fairy friend withe me all the time.

    I love Dante dude.
  • bedelicious - April 22, 2014 2:01 p.m.

    I didn't find Donte any more likeable by the end of the game, nor did I think he had any real character development xD Certainly not a well-written one xD But to each their own xD Also, Dante in DMC3 went from a careless slob to someone who truly wished to protect the humans and do what's right. NT tried to copy his arc with Donte, but pretty much failed miserably on all fronts. And let's not talk like Donte is supposed to be the pioneer of character development in video games. Unlike him though, other characters did a good job at the task xD

    I xD disagree xD with xD things xD you xD saying xD about xD Dante xD

    Good thing you have such good arguments to back up your opinion :D

    The only character you're wrong from hating is Tidus. From FFX, of course.
  • sephex - April 22, 2014 7:09 a.m.

    I meant for hating, of course.

    I was expecting to see Raiden here.

    While I have no objections to someone else finding New Dante a likeable character, telling me I'm flat out wrong for thinking he's a brutish, arrogant, egotistical, crass, unbelievably annoying little prick is entirely not cool. That's just how he came across to me, and probably several hundred thousand other people at the very least. You can argue his merits all you want, but it doesn't change the fact that you simply cannot tell someone their own personal OPINION is wrong. People will think what they will think. And I just happen to still hate Dante, even with his so-called "development", mostly because I saw basically no change in him. So yeah, I'm going to continue to hate him, because that's my opinion, and I can justify it to the sun and back. So go ahead, try to tell me my personal view on a fictional character is somehow "wrong".

    Do you know what an argument or a dabate is? It's a person trying to convince another to change change their OPNION about something. Opinions can be wrong and they are not something sacred that can't be questioned, because - get this - everyone has them.
  • Zeedar - April 22, 2014 4:32 a.m.

    I wish you could edit comments. I want to fix the typos.

    Well, of course I know what a debate is. I just prefer to argue the value of my own points rather than trying to undermine someone else's. I'm not saying you can't question someone's opinion, I have regular debates about movies and games with a good friend of mine. We almost never agree, but we tend to list why we view something as positive or negative rather than trying to convince the other that their opinion is wrong. So it's more of a "I see your point, here's why I disagree" rather than "No, your view sucks. Here's why I'm right." And that's why this article annoyed me, I don't like the fundamental concept behind it. You just can't say "No, you're wrong for not liking something."
  • Zeedar - April 22, 2014 6 a.m.

    But if the two viewpoints directly contradict each other ("I think Dane is a good character" and "I think Dante is a terrible character") any arguments I make to support my opinion will obviously undermine yours. They can't both be true. Also "we tend to list why we view something as positive or negative rather than trying to convince the other that their opinion is wrong." I really don't see the difference. If I'm listing reasons why I'm right, I'm also listing reasons why you are wrong. Besides, I think you misunderstand the point of the article. It doesn't say "Your view sucks". It's trying to challenge widespread and very strongly held opinions. That really shouldn't offend you.
  • MeanwhileGuy - April 22, 2014 6:16 a.m.

    To me the points I listed are different from one another. Those same reasons I could like something could be the exact reasons someone else dislikes it. Take Delsin Rowe from the new inFamous, I've seen different reviews with opposing viewpoints on him that listed the same reasons as to why the reviewer did or did not like him. So that way, both states are true. And that's the great thing about opinions, and why I like hearing other perspectives. It can be so refreshing to hear somehow say they hated something for the exact reasons you liked it, and that fascinates me. It all comes down to the matter of subjectivity. If I like something and someone else dislikes it, I won't say they're wrong and try to convince them my opinion is right. That's why this article got to me, it's telling me I'm somehow wrong about my own viewpoint.

    Or you could try to acknowledge that this is a tongue in cheek article on a tongue in cheek website about videogames. Maybe the correct course of action would be to calm the fuck down. Feel how you want and recognize that all this shit (games and whatnot) is all silly fun.

    I liked tails, not as much as Knuckles but i found nothing wrong with tails, he's a genius who talks in genius slang but constantly gets a more kiddish/feminie voice. Also come on Nintendo, listen to the voice of Mario himself and make that Waluigi game already XP
  • torre-sims - April 21, 2014 10:23 p.m.

    Agreed about navi...
  • ultimatepunchrod - April 21, 2014 9:07 p.m.

    Thank you for both the new Dante and Tails. It's good to know I'm not the only one defending those guys.
  • theguyinthecloset - April 21, 2014 8:50 p.m.

    I agree with everything... except Waluigi. Stupid ass face and body. totaly UNlikeable.
  • theguyinthecloset - April 21, 2014 8:44 p.m.

    I still say that Baby Mario isn't a health bar. The health bar is the counter that makes you dead when it reaches zero. That's the numbers counting down from 10. It's like you lose 1 HP per second and you have 10 HP. Mario is simply the chiken in a bin to your empty health bar.
