I at least played through Pillars of Eternity and found one thing memorable about a choice I made
And that thing being slapping a woman? Josh must be proud.

It was with an open hand, and I believe there was another option to simply kill her. It was something of a chaotic-neutral choice, the evil choice would have been to kill her. Don't want her alerting the guards when I'm in there to burglarize, not fight, she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, so little tam tam had to go nighty night.

Sounds like a fake account to me. I mean, praising Pillars of Eternity(!) simply because there was an option to "backhand a woman" and nothing else? From an account made last Thursday and named "somerandomdude"? Yeah, I smell a fish here.

Newfag has opinions you don't like = fake account. *yawns*

Pardon me for not being a white knight. I admittedly find it extremely banal to be expected to be some sorta bastion of humanity in these types of games, so when I get unexpected choices, such as the option of slapping a woman! That actually makes things more interesting.

Pillars was still a cut above most of the newer cRPGs we're getting, the graphics/art style was decent, the combat was what you'd expect out of a game like this, and you had the freedom to be a total douche if you wanted to with "choices", which some people like having.

Divinity Original Sin's only redeeming quality was maybe the combat (not really cRPG), but it would have been better as some sorta team-based Diablo-clone dungeon spelunking game than a cRPG.

For the record, I decided to register here after someone posted a link to this forums on Grimoire's steam section. I was like, that looks like a cool place where people can actually share an opinion without getting totally censored. But, that doesn't mean that sharing an opinion won't irritate some people, which I somehow manage to do without even really trying, so maybe I'm just a natural at this?

Bullshit. There are a plenty of opinons I disagree with, yet I find them to be reasonable or at least understandable, even when posters are relatively new to the site. However, when someone is making such wild claims out of the blue, like you do, and it is an account that's not even a week old, then it is going to look suspicious. So suspicious, in fact, that I don't even think you're retarded, because I find it much more likely to be a calculated effort. Then again, maybe I am giving you too much credit here.

Pardon me for not being a white knight.
I did slap a woman in real life. She was literally asking for it by touching my ass with her fat hands after I told her, three times, that I do not appreciate being touched against my will. I guess she thought my politeness made me an easy target for her to abuse, but enough was enough.

Also, nobody is asking you to be a white knight, but focusing on that single particular detail means you either have some woman-related issues or are a fake who's trying to be controversial.

That came out of nowhere, what the fuck...

Since you want to express such seething butt rage over a simple comment about me enjoying an aspect of a game you don't agree with, then just put me on ignore so my comments don't ruffle your feathers up, or report me if you think something I said is against the rules.

I think you're gay, because you slapped a woman who was looking to give you some, and you're suggesting I'm the one with women issues? LMAO.

I'm not the one focusing on that specific detail, you are. I elaborated my opinion on the game more broadly, but you ignore that and keep going back to that one thing that apparently triggered you. And let's ignore the fact that I simply like having unexpected choices like this in games, and found the game to be good in some other areas as well, maybe not stellar, but good enough for 1 playthrough.

And yes I have opinions which are controversial, such as I'm in agreement with Sean Connery's original opinion when it comes to slapping women. Someone we can all agree had no issues getting women. If you don't like it, I don't care.

We don't report people down here. That's homosexual behavior. We just call them faggots and move on.

So what was next? Did she get angry, did she proceed touching you?

And let's ignore the fact that I simply like having unexpected choices like this
Out of curiosity: is slapping a woman is already a taboo in western media? I can remember it wasn’t like 20 years ago with men usually slapping back without any particular remorse.

It's a little more complicated than that, because there's differing reasons for it being viewed as taboo depending on which type of values one subscribes to.

#1 - Now, it's bad for men to assert any dominance over women at all, because it's seen as patriarchal, and misogynistic. Whether it's a slap, or mansplaining, or even casual micro-aggressions perceived as such, I.E. toxic masculinity.
#2 - But on the other hand there's still the old school values where men shouldn't hit women because they're the fairer sex, and should be treated as if they're babies. The old school white knight philosophy of coddling women.

Pick your group whether it's the liberal woke mobsters or old school cuckservative values that no longer really applies in this day and age.

And some of the ones here are right to suspect that I purposely threw that out, I did it just to test the waters, just to see how based this forums was. Overall, I still think the forums is pretty based, just that there's a few snowflakes around for sure.

Anyway I'm done with the games/testing the waters.

I actually bought BG2 EE on epic store (I had a discount coupon). I'm hugely skeptical of 3, because it's a new game, not a remaster of a classic that I know is good.

Grammar is too coherent. Victor would never use a word like "banal"
