Unpopular Opinions

Posted 05 September 2013 - 10:20 AM

So many people have them but are too worried about what the person next to you will say when you voice them. I was on lunch a few minutes ago and in passing said "I think the Beatles suck". It was insane how that whole hour turned into people trying to convince me otherwise and being aggressive when I remained unconvinced.

Do you have any unpopular opinions? Do you care to voice them?

The trick is, you said at work. I never bring my personal opinions into a place of business that can cause feelings of ill with people whom I depend on for work relationship &/or income.

That being said, I believe in ... well far too many unpopular things to be viewed negatively as an admin of Dream In Code. So I tread lightly & adhere to the first paragraph.

Do I care what people think of me? No, not at all. But I do not with those views to be held against the site, it's staff, or it's members. So I keep them to myself.

The Beatles suck.

Star Wars is boring.

I never seen Seinfeld, Forest Gump, and several other things from this time period that I thought just looked stupid.

I HATE Ben Stiller.

I think male comic book super heroes look like homo-erotica for little boys. And are boring because they play out like day time soap operas.

...

the list goes on.

Ok, here's a real unpopular opinion that constantly gets me shit

Oblivion is the single worst AAA game ever made.It is, in fact, so bad that it has caused other games in other franchises to suck by proximity. Because Fallout 3 was so closely tied to Oblivion (it's Oblivion with Guns), it actually managed to ruin the Fallout Franchise. No joke, it makes Brotherhood of Steel look awesome!

The Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises have all gone to shit at the hands of Oblivion.

Anything published before Oblivion is OK, but anything after is twisted and disgusting. It's like Chernobyl before and after.

edited to fix formatting since I'm apparently not on Reddit atm

I have no care or recollection of any new (or current) country music stars. I tend to smile, nod, and ask if that was a Brit comedy group. Don't get bent out of shape and grab my arm to tell me why country music is important for me to listen to. If it's not found in Time Life's "Golden Age of Country" then it won't be listened too.

The same goes for not knowing who Noel Fielding is (or caring). That spurred a blathering where I excused myself to go to the bathroom and just didn't come back.

Oh, and the "IT Crowd" is not that funny.

I think Mortal Kombat on Sega Genesis is the best video game ever.

If you call yourself a Java programmer I immediately think you're an enterprise-9-to-5-middle-aged guy.

Hmm...

I have zero interest in sports. It annoys me that every news outlet treats this form of entertainment as if it somehow has greater value than any other kind of meaningless diversion.

I believe that if you're going to eat meat, you should be able to look it in the eye as it dies. If you don't want to hear where it comes from, you don't have the right partake of its sacrifice.

I LOATHE ketchup. It's wretched, noxious, stuff with a stench that seems unavoidable in some venues.

Seinfeld didn't amuse me.

As long as no one else gets hurt, it should be legal. You want to kill yourself, quickly or slowly, it's your own damn business.
