Who are more cruel? Gays or straight?
@rendezvous this definitely a tough topic and I want to play devil's advocate here but it isn't easy...
There are a lot of factors which make your observation very true. It is very typical to see straight people as more intolerant than homosexuals but I believe that is primarily for a very specific reason... religion.
In all monotheistic religions homosexuality is forbidden. Unfortunately, this ideology often spills over into most culture's "normal" way of thinking. It sometimes has the ability to infect laws and other major aspects of life. If we were to find the book (Bible, Quran, Torah) was wrong and it spoke out against straight people, I believe the roles would reverse.
Sadly, society cowers at the thought of God's wrath. Some people believe it is their duty to rid the world of "evil doers." I grew up in a church, however, this notion is foreign to me. At my church we accepted everybody as human beings and a children of God; all races, sexualities, genders... it didn't matter in our eyes because we knew it did not matter in Jesus's eyes. Of course I grew up right outside of San Francisco, so that might have something to do with it. However, the churches here (in the south) vehemently speak out against homosexuality. It literally doesn't compute in my head because the Bible even speaks about Jesus accepting everyone.
So, I guess what I am saying is you are right straights are more intolerant and generally more hateful people than homosexuals but it is necessary to consider their religious standpoint (and what warped shit they were taught) and cultural upbringing (and how heavily influenced it is by the warped shit). Damnit man! I really I wanted to create a good counterargument but you got me here.
Choose a game you love (or tolerate) in each category!
@bushmurry 1 - First Person Shooter - I'd say... Hmmm... Maybe the Killzone series (Except for Shadowfall... That was complete shit... Lol) That's the only one that kinda stands out to me for some reason. The rest are just plain simple shooters... I'm A open world RPG type of guy. But maybe Battlefield is A good exception as well. (COD can just... Die... Please...) OH! But maybe TF2 as well! (But I can't play that anymore because their matchmaking system is terrible now...)
2 - Platform Game - Honestly... I don't really have any particular favorite Platform game. My games use 'Elements' of platforming, (Like most do.) but never really played A "Full on" Platform game for the fun of it. It really just depends... But to me, the whole genre doesn't seem like "Game of the Year" material anymore...
3 - Fighting Game - Again... Not A huge fan of this genre just for the fact that it's just all the same. (Like most FPS's.) But it's still fun as hell sometimes! So I'd say, Either Mortal Kombat X or Tekken 7. These games are both great and exceptional games that are fluid and fun. I use to like playing the WWE games with my brother. But they arn't really 'Great'.
4 - Racing Game - Use to love Grand Turismo. (Grew up with it with my PS1 and 2. Lol) But not very appealing to me anymore. I usually just race occasionally on GTA Online. (Because who doesn't?).
5 - Role Playing Game - A toss up with either Fallout 4, GTA V, Witcher 3 and Mount & Blade. (So many! You can't make me Choose!!! I won't let you! Cowers)
6 - Strategy Game - Oh BOI! XCOM man is so fucking fun! Lol... (Played the older ones and Enemy Unknown is still my favorite!) But I love when my RPG games have some elements of Strategy implemented in them as well. Civilization series arn't too bad. Also Age of Empires... Love that game so much when I was younger. (Probably one of my first PC games I can remember)
7 - Sports Game - Really just depends... This genre has none of my "Go to games" But they are fun to past time. So I'd say when I have it installed and not lagging my ass off on PC. Rocket League is fun. But I never mind kicking somebody's ass on A Fifa game or two when a person ask's me to play with them. Lol.
Sorry I type too much... Lol...
