Like I said, feel free to feel all superior because your tastes in games, music, movies, whatever is so much more sophisticated (even though it really isn't. Sorry). I have heard this age-old baseless haughtiness for years of being a musician because if you like music genre 'X' then you are an idiot or if you don't think genre 'Y' is crap then clearly you don't know good music and yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah. Arrogance through self-attributed superiority isn't anything new; it's as old as the hills. I bet cavemen probably belittled the other cavemen who liked the simple, colorful cave paintings.

I don't have to feel superior to think that something is just garbage. I guess no one is allowed to complain about anything ever again because someone else might like it and their taste is just as valid as yours. Everything is subjective and we all make those judgements, conscious or unconsciously. Not like feigned detachment is another form of faux superiority or anything either!

- DADES - This is a signature of my name, enjoy!

So by implication, actual detachment, actually not caring if people like CoD (or Justin Bieber or whatever) is actual superiority?

Thank you Dades, that's very kind of you.
