This is me to a T. I can't stand it when ANYONE tries to convince me something is good without admitting at least one fault. When I buy a car, I make the salesperson tell me something that could be improved (or something competitors have over their vehicle)...just to know they are a little more honest and not trying to B.S.
Also, the relatable thing....I was thinking about this last night while I stood with other gamers in line for the SNES classic. Some of the guys would go off on wild tangents/explanations as to why they enjoyed a certain game, and I kept thinking "I DON'T CARRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
Some people go overboard with details in games when they discuss them. Just give me the low-down...
