On Twitter, I made this comment:
Angry Birds is to the mobile gaming industry as Twilight is to books and
MW3 Call of Duty is to PC gaming (corrected because I mentioned the wrong game earlier).
The basis of that particular thought was a conversation I had with Kamigoroshi over this article. It is basically about pandering to the lowest common denominator.
Call of Duty, Twilight and Angry Birds all have the same characteristic, in that they pander to the lowest common denominator. Call of Duty does that for PC gaming, Twilight does it for books, and Angry Birds does it for mobile gaming.
THAT IS THE ONLY THING THEY HAVE IN COMMON, PEOPLE.
I’m not going to talk about their content, nor their popularity and such. Only that they pander to the lowest common denominator.
Also I do apologise for holding them as up epitomes, as I mentioned previously in another tweet. I was rushing and did not look at the words carefully.
The next section is dedicated to the very same guy who called me out… and then proceed to act in what I consider as a hissy fit. Skip the cut if you just want to comment on the above.
I certainly did not expect you in particular to rant about how you cannot compare Angry Birds to Twilight (the latter for its toxic and racist content). Your excuse for being “mean” to me? That you have “involuntary 3-day weekend hangover, and I wanted to be mean. I admit it!”
So just because you decide to be mean, gives you the ok to put words in my mouth? I expected more out of you, but it would seem that I have misjudged you grossly. Am I insulted? Yes. I am even more offended that you did not offer any apology, but then again, you seem to be angry at the world all the time. *shrugs*
