Oh, here's two good old fart ones:

- Contrary to popular belief, LJN was actually not the worst licensed publisher on the NES. A Nightmare on Elm Street was a really ambitious and (mostly) fun game. They released two or three other good games.

THQ was actually way worse. Not a single good game.

- Somewhat counterintuitively, commercial AM radio will outlive FM. Reason being that fewer and fewer people listen to their music on the radio, whereas AM is still a bastion for conservative and libertarian talk. It's also a medium that the left has utterly failed to take over (see, e.g., Air America) and has probably all but given up on. Google and other censor fags can't do anything about it either.

People always flick the comedian Gallagher shit, but I actually find him funny. The props and melon smashing were a small part of his shows saved until the end. His actual stand up is pretty good. Guy's an egotistical asshole who thinks he's God's gift to comedy outside of that, he's not, but he's not as bad as people make him out to be.

I don't like any of the Rare platformers on the N64 and I'm glad that formula died with that console.
If you ask me, Rare platformers were pretty overrated all together. Donkey Kong Country on the SNES looked a hell of a lot better than it played.

Also:

- FFVII is ridiculously overrated. Best RPG on the PSX was, hands down, Xenogears.

- Victor Ireland, formerly of Working Designs, was an insufferable and borderline incompetent asshole who held short-term admiration because hardly anybody else was porting JRPGs at the time. He couldn't hack it in today's game industry, and would be regarded as a cow.

- In the right hands, the YM2612 in the Genesis sounds way better than the SPC700 in the SNES.

- PC Engine fanboys really oversell that system. It had some great CD titles like Rondo of Blood, but the HuCard library was altogether "meh."

- The greatest Steve that ever worked at Apple has the last name of Wozniak.

- Build Engine games were more fun than IDTech 1 (Doom).

Todd Howard is actually not a bad developer. He's worked on some truly good (albeit buggy) games, dating back to Terminator: Future Shock. He just needs to have the microphone torn from his hands, and be relegated to an office. His technical ability far outstrips his social and leadership skills.

Wes Craven was a very hit or miss director, and not the 'master of horror' his fans paint him as. The first Nightmare on Elm Street is a classic, and I'd add The Hills Have Eyes, while not a classic is still good. The rest of his movies (including Scream) range from 'meh' to garbage.

The Beatles are vastly overrated, and the people that sperg out when someone doesn't like them are faggots. They were a fucking boyband, not the second coming of Mozart ffs
Agreed. I'd also add the moralfags who throw an autistic temper tantrum every time John Lennon's name is mentioned are faggots also. Yeah, he wasn't a very good husband or father, doesn't mean people still can't enjoy his music and separate his personal life from his music.

Yeah, I much prefer John Carpenter over Wes Craven.

Carpenter's 1982 version of The Thing is one of the best sci-fi horror movies I've ever seen. It was trashed by critics when it first came out, but is vastly superior to the 1951 original, the 2011 prequel, and even the John Campbell short-story it was loosely based on. I think it's since been reappraised as a classic.

Come to think of it, Carpenter has been unfairly shit on by critics most of his career. If you don't like (the extremely quotable and witty) Big Trouble in Little China, you have no sense of humor, and should probably just kill yourself.

I don't want to live in a world of our government's making. What of we compromise and just have a new plague?


EDIT: The Theme Song is the best part of "Blackadder."

I sorta-kinda liked the segment that was set during WWI. I don't remember the other ones being particularly good. It's been a while though.
TBF I watched about half the Richard III stuff, decided the person who recommended it to me was just jerking themselves off over getting references, and left remembering only "unless you want to end up shoooorter."

I feel you. The WWI segment (the last season, in fact), was a semi-competent dark comedy about the idiocy of trench warfare. There's a great line in there about how thousands of men have to die so Haig can move his drinks cabinet a couple of inches closer to Berlin.
