PostSubject: What Are Your Guilty Pleasures?   Sun Apr 25, 2010 5:10 pm

Now when I say 'guilty pleasures' I don't mean something that you like but you honestly think (and have a good argument to support) that it's good quality. For example, I don't consider my liking of Naruto to be a guilty pleasure, because I think it's a good quality manga/show.

However, I have no justification for my love of playing Pokemon games. They're all the same, repetitive, with just a new setting, a few new pokemon and moves and features, yet I've still played every one of them. I'm in the process of playing the new HeartGold, a remake of Heart/Silver which was my favorite version in the series.

Alright I came clean. Time for you to make me feel better about myself as I just did for you Razz

I enjoy older action/martial arts flicks like Street Fighter/Delta Force 2, etc. They are terrible movies, but I just can't help but enjoy them!

Uwe Boll game based movies. They're terrible, but I can't help but watch 'em given the chance, even if I haven't played the game.

The 1970s children's tv series 'The Wombles'. I have every episode on dvd and I make no apologies for sitting down and watching them all back to back.

Recently, urban fantasy and neo-gothic metal. I grew up on TRUE gothic art, and can't stand to call this new crap gothic (it lacks some of the most crucial elements of the style, and embraces the most superficial). However, the music is good, particularly with female vocalists.

The urban fantasy is just fun. There's no deep philosophy involved, and they're not really "great story" quality, but I really enjoy them.

Oh, and classic games. NES, Game Boy, Commadore 64, DOS--I love the games that came out on these systems. The gameplay just seems to be better for some reason. And honestly, it's not all nestalgia. I did't play a whole lot of games as a kid (mostly puzzle games, where the fact that I was using them for physical therapy didn't cause me to want to chuck the system through the TV. Ever try to land Mario on a one-square platform between two pits when you see two Marios and the pit randomly disapears on you?)

Dinwar, it is NEVER appropriate to put down Morrowind. Not even for bubbles. Shame on you.

1) Spartacus: Blood and Sand
It's horrible. Bad bad bad bad. But I can't stop watching it. The absurd violence/blood and the "authentic" amount of sex (I've never seen any form of documentation to support the "fact" that Ancient Rome was rampant with vast amounts of sex and nudity, yet HBO, SHOtime and Starz don't seem to care lol) is... also bad, but I like it anyway... lol.

2) Mathew Reilly
Australian writer of mass market action books. The writing is mediocre, the stories are predictable, but... they're ridiculously amusing to read.

In my defense, I have no fwoosh. Very Happy I'm playing a spellsword, and have no range attacks--all my spells are either stat adjustments, healing/recovery, or "on touch" attack spells (fire and ice). My weapon is a longsword. Which means I get up close and personal with the bad guy--and which meant at the time that the bad guys got up close and personal with ME. This guy requires different tactics from my orc thug.

Not vast, but Romans didn't have the inhibitions the West currently does. I think it was either Virgil or Cato the Elder that wrote a book on how to have an affair. Imagine if Obama decided to write a book on how to cheat on your husband (yeah, it was largely advice for women who were looking for something on the side). And the naked human form was viewed as a very beautiful thing by the Romans (partially due to the Greek influence), so there are a lot of nude mosaics and paintings around. It was a different culture, with different sexual norms, and most ini America today take that to mean orgies and no restraint what so ever.

This Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FavUpD_IjVY

The content is disturbing and the music is annoying, but I can't help but be... fascinated.

I can't believe I watched that... and never shut it off. Wowsers...

My guilty pleasure? I love my manga and anime.

I dunno, to me it was more amusing than disturbing. I can see how some of the images should be a bit disturbing, but with the way it's presented I can't help but find it all entertaining and slightly funny instead.

I mean, these cows are obviously incredibly powerful beings with the ability to warp reality, and what do they do with this awesome power? Do they take over the world? Nope. They make a dance video. Very Happy
