Good post! Welcome to the real name club.

I wrote something along these lines last year, after last Expo when I had a chance to talk with Greg Freres about how personal people got with the GOT criticisms, and I apologized to him if I had any role in that. I remember he talked about how someone said the art looked like someone had just taken a shit on the playfield. He read that, it wasn't just stupid internet banter that went nowhere. It was obvious his feelings were hurt, and who can blame him? I never said anything like that, but I still felt like an ass.

I've been a lot more careful about how I post since then when discussing games.

Keep that in mind, Stern, whoever, they're reading. Which means your voice is heard, and that's great, but it also means when you're a giant dick it comes across too.

Speaking personally I don't really care if someone criticizes my art. You don't like Alien or whatever feel free to say so. But I appreciate it when people don't make it so damn personal. I have thick skin, but it wears on you after a while, all the negative energy. When the criticism is constructive I take it to heart, being thoughtful and taking a moment to compose your thoughts honestly does get your point further, if you actually care and aren't just looking to take shots at someone.

Quoted from epthegeek:

I'm with RCA1 - the title of this thread reads like it's soylent green-ish. Like if you lift up the playfield on a game, there's actually a person in there. A slave. Activating lights and VUKs and whatnot. I can't help it. That's just how the title reads to me.
I agree with the idea behind it - I just can't get past how my brain reads the title every time I see it

That sounds better than me hearing the title read out loud by Mitt Romney every time I see it!

Pinball is people my friend.
