    I'm not interested in having a discussion with someone who thinks of people as sexual degenerates for having a different sexual preference. For people like that the idea that diversity destroys companies is all that matters to them when there's much larger problems at companies like this. It's a waste of everyone's time.

    So you're not willing to have a discussion with him because of his differing opinion on something? Whether you believe it to be right or wrong, you can't say you think diversity is good them follow it up by saying diversity in opinion makes him not worth taking to.

    I'm not saying, that caring for diversity in your workforce will make or break your company, but its certainly not beneficial and indicative of a lot of other problems.
    Also I would argue that some minorities have a higher than average chance of becoming a liability.

    I guess my language came across harsher than it was meant to be. I don't really care about peoples sexual preferences and as an employer I wouldn't care for that as well. It just wouldn't factor into any hiring decision and I wouldn't ask about it in a job interview.

    But I guess we aren't discussing, as we are too diverse to hold a civil conversationwink

    I love how this became a philosophical discussion.

    Hey folks, you can move that discussion to private PM's if you like. Just keep it out of this thread as it's becoming way off topic.

    Thanks.
    Don't bro me if you don't know me.

    I've bought many of these "games" and probably will buy the others while I still can. I really only play them to collect the achievements though. I found them all to be mostly boring and paid very little attention to the story. It has always been hard for me to focus on gameplay and pay attention to a story at the same time.

    The Walking Dead games, from the very very start I found incredible hard to play--I practically fell asleep playing them I found them so boring. Of course, I'm a very active type of person, always doing things when I'm awake it seems, so maybe that's part of it.

    And especially more now, limited time means limited games, which means I'll play whatever I enjoy the most. These Telltale games aren't even on the radar.

    I'm curious about the personality of people who like the Telltale games--peaceful personalities who like relaxing often? Just a random shot in the dark, but I know a lot of people do like these games and I don't know why. smile

    There's a genre for most.
    Slow-twitch gamers - Telltale/Stealth/Puzzler
    Med-twitch gamers - Action Adventure/Racing
    Fast-twitch gamers - FPS/MMORPG/Battle Royale

    Rule of thumb: everyone is different and trying to force hard categories is usually futile.

    Indeed. I love adventure games and I love visual novels. Yet I loathe the way Telltale does their games.

    I remember playing the Tell Tale Game of Thrones for the first time at a friends house--my friend and his sister both were really enjoying it, and they both were falling asleep. LOL

    Exactly. The mission to lump Telltale fans into one group is futile, as it would be for pretty much any genre or developer. There's no grand unifying personality trait that links their fans. It's a silly exercise.
