there seems to be more people in this instance agreeing with the direction silent hill went and how it was a poor choice.
Ah okay. If more people disagree with me rather than agree, that clearly means I'm wrong. Gotcha! ;D
That's just silly reasoning, really. Opinions are nice, but in the grand scheme, they are worthless in the end. A lot of people here know of my hatred of most of the CoD games, but my hatred (and that which thousands of others share) doesn't change reality -- that the series will continue to sell millions every year and CoD won't end for many more years. All I can do, therefore, is to accept it and move on. Doesn't matter how many people agree about something, that doesn't mean it is any more true than any other opinion.
If DH and I agreed that the sky is sometimes blue, we'd be right, because it's a fact. If we got high off shrooms and agreed that the sky is filled with giant boxes of butter cakes, we'd be full of shit, regardless of whether or not we both agreed that's what was there.
