You won't get any consistent answers, as lots of people have different answers.

Had some users who were veteran. New guy joins. Is cool for a while. Causes some shit. Shit gets whack. Some vets join new guy, some oppose new guy. New guy gets banned. Some other new guys get banned. Some vets get banned. Kolph was one of those vets.
ahh i see. so essentially he was an oldfag that became a nagolbud follower then?

im not sure if this was intentional but it seems pretty ironic that you would say two completely contradictory things in the same post ... XD
Maybe being a furry is an intellectual hobby that needs to be discriminated more according to him

I also say you need to respect your enemies so I probably contradicted that twice
Enjoying yourself even if it annoys someone else takes precedence over everything else anyway

I can roll with this

Hating people and discriminating against them is not only basic human nature but its a good thing. You cant have a cohesive unit if you don't exclude others that don't fit into that unit.

anyone male into mlp above the age of 5 should be put in a re-education camp and exiled if they continue to like that degeneracy

Ocarina of Time is a decent game with some serious shortcomings. Modding support will hopefully give it a new life.

Majora's Mask is an overall improvement, but the fanbase is filled with a bunch of pathetic losers who desperately want this 20 year old children's game to be a work of art, and never shut up about how it's a metaphor for the stages of death.

Wind Waker is overhyped garbage. In a game that relies so heavily on sailing, it's so wild to me that everything about it is horrible.

- You have to play the song every time you want to turn your boat, then watch a cutscene of the wind changing, every single time. Wind Waker HD fixes this, but I have no idea how anyone thought this was a good idea in the first place.

- Sea combat is completely broken, if you're hit once you fall out of your ship and have to swim back in, except if you're not careful you'll accidentally talk to the King of Red Lions and you can't skip his dialogue. If things get frantic, this can happen more than once.

- There's just the right amount of content in the ocean to be boring, but just enough so that you can't just set the direction you want and read a book, or check your phone. You always have to have the controller in your hand because you never know when the game has to decide you need to be chased by sharks.

- While you can find some heart containers just by wandering around, it seems like the majority of them come from Treasure Charts. This makes exploration way worse than in its predecessors, but also makes sailing worse because you're going to burn out way faster.

- In Ocarina of Time you could take the field, take the warps, use Epona or take shortcuts. If you wanted to, you could fall into the river at Gerudo Valley, go to lake Hylia, use the shortcut to get into Zora's domain, use the shortcut outside to go into Kokiri Forest, then use the shortcut there to go to Death Mountain and wind up at Kakario Village, all without touching the central hub (this is in no way the optimal way to do it, but the point stands - you have options). In Wind Waker, even with the warp song you NEED to sail. There's no getting around it.

- It's slow. Dear god why is it so slow.

- >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk isn't as shit as people claimed to be, at least it's still better than hellholes like twitter and discord, I found it to be the least bad of mainstream sites, just stay away from toxic subreddits which should be obvious.

- The "If you are getting banned your right of free speech aren't being violated" argument is poor, it only make sense when applied to small personal spaces.

- Spyro games suck, they aged like milk and are pretty much the only childhood games that I ended up hating after replaying as an adult.

>redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk is good when you're like, "What is the best toaster to buy?" or "What is a good handheld emulation system?"

yep I still use >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk for autistic hobbies and obscure old games, like if you were finding others' take for worldbuilding elements or builds in Gothic 2 then >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk is quite useful.

Redbit can be good when you find small subreddits. They're like tiny walled gardens hidden from the eyes of normies.

- Both pro-life and pro-choice points of view are valid
- Colonialism isn't an exclusive Western thing yet no one seems to bother the Arabs, Mongols, Japanese and others for having committed atrocities and colonized TONS of people, duh no, they're not white so they get a pass apparently...
- Horses should be back, as they would be an interesting way to create less polluting transport, companionship, help for working, and meat
- There is nothing wrong with shagging a family member as long as it's between two consenting adults and no baby is made in the process
- If you're a woman and walk around hardly clothed, expect men to look at you, doesn't warrant rape or assault (of course) but still, don't complain you're getting comments, as male humans are mostly visual
- The elders don't always say outdated bullshit. Don't treat their words like the word of God, but don't completely dismiss them either. They still have a valuable amount of experience.
- You can identify as any gender you want, but biology is still a thing, you're either male or female, except for the rare cases of intersexuation that really make it "impossible" to discern your gender at birth.
- Military personnel and more generally people who are frequently always from home due to their job should think twice about having kids. It's absolute shit for child development to have your parent go away and return and hardly be around, even more so when the bond to the other parent is weak, complicated or nonexistent. Military brat experience here.
- The kids who glorify self-harm, suicide, eating disorders and other self-destructive behaviours unfortunately do so because no one is listening to them and it's the only way they can be heard. It's not for fun that they do that.

Wind Waker is overhyped garbage. In a game that relies so heavily on sailing, it's so wild to me that everything about it is horrible.
While I wouldn't say Wind Waker is "overhyped garbage" I did get to play actually and it's one of the weirdest Zelda games at least.
-I like how there are some great and wholesome moments in the game.
-Re-deads are bloodcurdling in this game.
-Has great music like always.

There are other things I like but aside from those things, wind waker is really weird. I feel like there's a conflict between it being "open" and "linear" as sometimes I found the game doesn't do a clear job of directing to where you need to go.

The cel-shading aspect is also pretty overrated IMO. I think Okami and Borderlands perfected that type of art style years later. And some art effects look kind of weird like the lighting.

Overall, I think wind waker feels like it doesn't stand out as much compared to other Zelda games. Did I mention that's it pretty rushed too?

I remembered it being better as a kid, I played through it again recently and while I didn't hate every second of it, it definitely made me nostalgic for Beyond Good and Evil.

-Has great music like always.
Does it though? Aside from Dragon Roost Isle I can't really remember any of the music.

Overall, I think wind waker feels like it doesn't stand out as much compared to other Zelda games. Did I mention that's it pretty rushed too?
I actually like it more than Twilight Princess.

It's just that I don't have a very strong opinion of that game because I got bored and quit.
