57. Re: Enhanced Skyrim UI Dec 20, 2011, 08:10 Pankin
Normally, at this point, I'd abandon such an exchange in favor of doing, well, anything else. But I wish to make it clear that SV and I are not defending Skyrim's UI. Come to think of it, I shouldn't speak for StingingVelvet, so I won't. I'm not arguing in defense of the stock UI because it's indefensible. You can safely bet I'll be trying all these UI mods to replace the terrible stock UI.

What I AM saying, however, is that you cannot wave a wand and turn a subjective opinion into an objective fact just because you feel strongly about those opinions. I'm truly sorry but you can't. Again, it doesn't matter how strongly you feel that the points you've made are facts. They're not. They're opinions. I even agree with all of them. How's that for the equivalent of walking and chewing gum at the same time?

Yes, I agree with your points but that does not make them facts. Most players of Skyrim probably agree with you. They're still not facts.

Here's a question for you: why do you feel as though your expressions must be that of objective fact? Probably at some point, someone told you that objective facts are "better" than opinions. They're actually not, but that's getting into far too much subtlety and nuance for a Blues News forum. Plus, no one's going to read this because I waited too long to post. But anyway...please don't feel like you can't express opinions and label them as such. No one's going to think less of you for it, I promise. You're actually a pretty persuasive writer already.

But what you're experiencing is the youthful conviction without all the wisdom that comes with age and experience; wisdom that, among many many many other things, provides for an understanding of the difference between subjectivity and objectivity. And the experience to know that they're not opposites.

Sorry I insulted you earlier (the shortbus crack) but I lost my temper. Have a great day and Happy Holidays!
