Don't get your panties in a bunch, ladies. Opinions differ. When someone expresses their opinion -- like how they feel about a game -- it's kind of redudant to add the caveat that said opinion is an opinion and subjective. To quote metacritic sites and Steam reviews in an attempt to "prove" my opinion wrong is the stuff of infants.
No the stuff of infants is to say the game is horrible and everyone is conspiring to make it sound like a great game and bots are at work when pretty much every review both from players and professional reviewers say the game is good.
The stuff of an adult would be to say that the game is not for you. Not that it sucks ass and act like that is objective.
I agree, which is why, as an adult (vs when I was younger), I try to frequently qualify my opinion with "in my opinion" or "to me."
Otherwise, it sounds like you're making a statement of objective fact.
Saying "only an idiot likes that game" or "that game is for idiots" is insulting in any case. But sometimes, well, Justin Bieber makes music for idiots and preteen girls. I'm ok with that being a statement of fact. But, in my opinion, Terraria is a dull game that isn't much fun. Knowing how adored that game is, I won't just say it sucks. It just isn't a game made for me.
