You know, sometimes having opinions can make you feel like no one else shares your views, especially if your views aren't being widely vocalized around you. Case in point: It's just been announced that J.J.Abrams will be directing Star Wars 7, and the internet is raging with butthurt about how shitty Abrams is, making over abundant lens flare jokes, and bemoaning the reboot of Star Trek in the process.

Thing is... I like J.J.Abrams. I liked LOST (despite it's shitty/rushed ending). I liked Super 8. I liked Cloverfield. I even enjoyed the recent Star Trek reboot and am looking forward to the sequel. I never had a problem with lens flares or noticed them being over used. And I think overall Abrams has made a fairly consistent batch of quality movies, which is a amazing considering how many directors flip flop between great and shitty.

But I can't often come right out and say that sort of thing because when I do I get attacked for having an opinion that runs counter to the vast majority of internet nerds and pundits. There are some things that everyone just "accepts" as facts or laws, even though when you look at them closer they quickly fall apart to logic. In the past I used to enjoy debating/arguing my views with other members of the community, but in recent years I'm getting rather tired of having to defend myself every time I express an opinion that runs slightly counter to the hive mentality of the internet.

At the same time I feel like it's my responsibility to speak up simply BECAUSE my voice and opinion isn't being widely expressed. I'm a firm believer that if you see a problem or have an issue with something you should speak up about it. If you don't, nothing is ever going to change, though by speaking up you are putting yourself in the hot-seat most of the time.

I often joke about my "controversial" opinions, but generally they're not really that controversial at all. So... in the interest of full disclosure, I'm gonna list off some of my "controversial" opinions. Please keep in mind that just because I say these things, it does not invalidate you or your own opinions. I am not saying I am right, I am not saying my views are law. These are simply my opinions and you are entirely free to agree or disagree with them as you wish.

We clear on that? Alright cool! So here we go in no particular order:

J.J.Abrams is a good director
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is a good game
The Zelda cartoon is not the worse thing to happen to the Zelda franchise
Ocarina of Time is still overrated
Super Mario Bros II is also a good game
Metroid: Other M didn't "ruin" the franchise or make Samus "weak"
Sony has a habit of making poor marketing decisions
Geek/Gamer Girls are not a threat to anything/anyone
Sexism/racism/bullying/homophobia in gaming culture are problems we need to address
G/L/B/T should be allowed to marry anywhere in my country
Religion in general needs to stop forcing itself onto everyone else
Obama has done a decent job thus far
Justin Beiber is not the worse singer in the world
There are worse actresses than Kristin Stewart
Macs generally run better than PC's
Family Guy is not funny
The original Spiderman Trilogy is not shit
Batman is becoming over-saturated
Watchmen (the movie) is overrated

(I hope people realize that putting the word "controversial" in quotation marks means I'm joking about how seriously people take these things, which should be evident by how many of these are pop-culture related and not really important opinions in the first place. Please don't get defensive or angry at this journal. It's not meant to be taken seriously and if you are about to take it seriously, please lighten up. Do I need to add a j/k to make that point clear?)

its not the end of the world that you dont like watchmen. honestly, I liked it so much I bought it on DVD. I liked cloverfield but a lot of my friends didnt. but hey we all cant like the same things right? I agree family guy is not funny. I enjoy watching it, but it really isnt that great, I prefer the other shows Mc farlane does, cleveland makes me laugh, and american dad is hillarious to me. though I imagine you probably dont. and you know what? I dont resent your opinions. you know what I like? you and your art. I like your work and what you do, and who you are. you are a good guy and I think you should know that. I randomly stumbled on your site a few years ago and I was hooked. I started reading it every week before my scuba class started and I had a little chuckle to keep my spirits up. a lot of my friends wont read the comics but thats their choice, they like other things and I wont force them to see what I like. if they dont like something, they dont have to. I dont like mushrooms and nothing is gonna make me like em. I like mario mushrooms and thats it. same concept.

thanks for sharing. :D though I like the bieber and kristin stewart jokes, as I am not a fan of either. also I dont like macs but I agree they are good computers, just a little pricey.

I was under the impression that the masses are enjoying the Star Trek reboot. Are they not? As for Abrams directing the new Star Wars movie I have no opinion about it at all. I actually just hate the idea of there being more movies in general.

And now I will list the opinions you shared that I agree with or have something to ask/mention about them

J.J.Abrams is a good director - I have no opinion of him or his work other than that I immensely enjoyed Star Trek and am super stoked for the next one.
The Zelda cartoon is not the worse thing to happen to the Zelda franchise. - I don't remember it but that "excuse me princess" line says it all.
Super Mario Bros II is also a good game. - Do you mean on the original NES? If so I agree.
Sexism/racism/bullying/homophobia in gaming culture are problems we need to address - I was unaware this was an issue.
G/L/B/T should be allowed to marry anywhere in my country
Religion in general needs to stop forcing itself onto everyone else
Obama has done a decent job thus far
Justin Beiber is not the worse singer in the world
There are worse actresses than Kristin Stewart
Macs generally run better than PC's
Family Guy is not funny. - I enjoy it but I can see why others wouldn't.
The original Spiderman Trilogy is not shit
Batman is becoming over-saturated
Watchmen (the movie) is overrated - I thought the masses hated this movie. Didn't bomb in the theaters?

Is it me or have I seen more people pick on religion than people picking on atheists?
{Not stating that you are picking on it, just saying what I've noticed so I'm not sure if it's very fair even though both sides have bad people. And personally "religious" people who force you are not truly religious but fanatics so I don't think it's good to say "religions that force you" but "religious fanatics".}

It seems like quite a few people are agreeing with one particular point you made, and I'm just going to speak up about how I feel about this, because after scrolling down the comments it seems like people are being relatively polite and I won't get nerd-raged.

"Religion in general needs to stop forcing itself onto everyone else" - I don't think it's entirely fair to blacklist all religions for what a few religions have done. I'm sure we can all think of peaceful religions that have in no way forced themselves on others, and if anyone can't, I would encourage them to broaden their horizons of the many other religions in the world.

There's my "controversial" opinion.

If you had a drinking game where you took a shot every time there was a lens flare in the Star Trek film, at least one person would die from alcohol poisoning. And everyone else would get severely drunk.

I like Star Trek, but the second time I watched it I noticed all the lens flares, and there are a LOT. There is no denying that, regardless of whether you notice it or not. It doesn't make him a bad director, but there are still a lot of lens flares.

How is "Ocarina of Time is still overrated", "controversial"? I really don't think anyone cares that it's overrated as long as it's a great game. I've never seen people fight over this or about the Spider Man movies. And while Batman is indeed getting much of the attention, I welcome new fans and the movies are good. (But I do hope they make movies of other DC characters).

And FG is one of those shows that is either a hit or miss with the jokes and you have to "get it" the majority of times. I'm not saying it's the funniest thing in the world (I like American Dad and Futurama more in the "adult cartoon" dpt.) but FG does have it's funny moments/episodes.

I agree with almost all the things you've said. The Star Trek reboot is not bad because of visuals or actors or directors. It's bad because of the story. It's terrible. It just is. It was the same as the movies before it: Some idiot gets a big giant weapon thing and does something small and/or stupid with it. But, after all that, I like the sequel because of what it has done for Star Trek. It's brought in new life to the series, brought new people who are going back and watching all the old stuff and falling in love with Star Trek and kept interest in Trek alive. And holy cow is Sony good at making bad marketing decisions, it should almost be a reality television show. I have heard that Seth is trying to kill Family Guy at this point because he wants to move on to other things. It was Nana Visitor (I think) who said he would be an excellent choice to helm a new Star Trek tv series.

To be honest when it comes to the new Star Wars movies it'll be impossible to make something worse than Jar Jar Binks. As soon as Lucas came up with that abomination he should've been forced to step away from the movie and let someone less bat shit crazy take over. He could've redeemed himself by killing that thing off in any of those 3 movies but instead he left him alive & kept having him pop up. I like the think after Episode 3 The Emperor took care of that problem & has Jar Jar's head mounted over his fireplace

Often on the internet what happens is that you get a vocal minority of people with strong opinions whereas the majority of people are less inclined to state their position/are less militant. It's actually a lot of fun to bring up a fandom in real life vs. the internet and see how truly varied the responses are (or maybe I'm just a troll).

J.J.Abrams is a good director - from everything i've seen yeah.

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is a good game - eh its probably the worst zelda game, to be the worst in a awesome franchise isn't a bad thing though.

The Zelda cartoon is not the worse thing to happen to the Zelda franchise - it kinda is again good franchise.

Ocarina of Time is still overrated - thats because it was GOOD probably the best (majoras mask is my favorite though.)

Super Mario Bros II is also a good game - yeah i guess not a bad game.

Metroid: Other M didn't "ruin" the franchise or make Samus "weak" - YES IT DID i couldn't stand how not strong they made her.

Sony has a habit of making poor marketing decisions - yeah, i dont care for sony though, they aren't as bad as SEGA (who i also love.)

Geek/Gamer Girls are not a threat to anything/anyone - yeah but "fake" fans of anything is just annoying to the real fans.

Sexism/racism/bullying/homophobia in gaming culture are problems we need to address - yeah doubt it'll happen anytime soon though.

G/L/B/T should be allowed to marry anywhere in my country - you didn't need to put the slashes but yeah equality for all is important.

Religion in general needs to stop forcing itself onto everyone else - yup.

Obama has done a decent job thus far - he's done pretty great actually.

Justin Beiber is not the worse singer in the world - no he's quite talented im just not a fan.

There are worse actresses than Kristin Stewart - yeah shes only bad in everything twilight and post twilight.

Macs generally run better than PC's - yeah but they dont do much else most games aren't made for them (without being hacked or something.)

Family Guy is not funny - it WAS funny, but seth had to dumb down the writting to keep people watching. American Dad is MUCH better.

The original Spiderman Trilogy is not shit - people hated it? i loved it, the third one was abit too much but still good.

Batman is becoming over-saturated - its because of the nolan movies, still good it deserves its popularity

Watchmen (the movie) is overrated - dont care i never saw it, all i remember is giant blue penis.

that's actually a good point! but people usually refer to it as how she was prior, before that game she was a bad ass who took charge and did what needed to be done, in that game however she asked permission to use weapons. its like with the new tomb raider games, Lara before was bad ass explorer but in the new one the trailer is her getting beat up like a weakling (just seeming defenseless) i do get what you're saying though, the culture thing is a good point.

and i also see your point.
i haven't though about the "before" and "after".
though its pretty hard to get characterization out of a silent protagonist.
a bad player would get beaten up like a weakling just as well.

though i do agree that asking permission for weapons is a bad scenaristic choice to explain the "she-doesn't-have-everything-she-had-last-game" issue.
i remember that in another game, to explain that, she crashed into a wall. she did not even crash hard.

the producers should just sweep it under the rug, that would avoid bad decisions like this.

Here’s my opinion on some of the stuff here (I’ll only mention the stuff I know about).

“Zelda II: The adventure of Link is a good game”.
I personally love the game. Heck, I enjoyed it more than the original Zelda. People whined that it was too different but that’s the reason I liked it. Most of retro games had a bad habit of making their sequels almost exact carbon-copies of the first game a good example of this being the real SMB2 (known as The lost levels in the U.S) which was the exact same games as the first but harder. Another reason why I liked it was because, unlike the first Zelda, it was hard (I’m sorry but the first game wasn’t really that hard and neither was ALTTP for that matter). I thought the top-view to side-scrolling transition was really cool and thought that Link and the enemies looked really nice. Plus, you could actually go into towns and see other people so Hyrule felt more like a living, breathing world rather than an empty wasteland.

“The Zelda cartoon is not the worst thing to happen to the franchise”.
I love the cartoon. It may not be perfect but it’s definitely on of the better videogame-based series. Gannon’s design could have been better but Zelda and Link’s design were not only faithful to the originals but were actually better than their videogame designs. The problem is that people compare the character with their modern versions and complain about their voices and personalities but the cartoon was based on the first 2 games and the characters really didn’t have any personalities yet so at the time the voices and personalities they had on the show seemed ok. After all, during the 80’s and early 90’s you could picture the characters any way you wanted to since they were nothing more than mindless avatars you controlled and not actual characters like they are now.

“Ocarina of Time is still overrated”
It’s my favorite 3D Zelda game (along with The Wind Waker) but people do have it way to high on a pedestal. Whoever, I find ALTTP (my favorite non-3D Zelda game) to be just as overrated and it’s fanbase to be just as whiny and bitchy of that of OoT’s but ,in my opinion, the most overrated of the Zelda games is the original and it’s fanbase it’s worse than ALTTP and OoT’s combined since they constantly whine of how “inferior” all the other Zelda games are and are specially resentful against Zelda II for because “it was an insult to the original” and ALTTP and OoT because they “ruined the franchise” even though the last 2 were the ones that made the series’ popularity really sky-rocket and secured its place as one of gaming’s most important franchises. Not to mention that they turned the people who didn’t like the first game into fans of the series (I honestly wasn’t interested in Zelda until OoT and ALTTP came along). Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the original but with each new game the first one just seems less interesting to me and IMO the original isn’t always better especially when it comes to videogames. For the record, I’m not using “overrated” in a “it-sucks/doesn’t-deserve-to-be-popular” way like most people use but as a “people-need-to-stop-worshipping-it-like-a-god way”.

“Super Mario Bros. 2 is also a good game”.
It’s one of my favorite Mario games and I actually like it better than SMB, SMB:TLL, SMB3 and SMW (all of which I love). It may have been a different game with Mario characters slapped on to it (similar to the whole Kirby’s Epic Yarn and StarFox Adventures fiasco) but it was still a great game and really original and it was definitely better than getting stuck playing a harder version of a game I already had.

“Metroid: Other M didn't "ruin" the franchise or make Samus "weak".
The game wasn’t a great entry for the Metroid series but as a standalone game it was pretty good. Samus still kicked butt but I do admit that they focused way too much in her femininity and not enough on her character so I really don’t think her other M portrayal did her justice but whether you liked the game or not people seriously need to get over it already. It’s been 2 years since the damn game came out. Besides, a new game is coming to the Wii U and maybe even the 3DS so I don’t see how the franchise is “ruined”.

“Sony has a habit of making poor marketing decisions”.
I agree. I love the PS2 and many of the games it had but the PS3 was a total disappointment. I personally didn’t find their game library to be as good as the PS2’s and I couldn’t even play my old games on it. Plus I only ended up buying one game for it (I don’t own one but my sister does and even she barely uses it). I also don’t like how they don’t have as much variation as they used too not to mention the PS3 had more issues than both the XBOX360 and Wii.

“Geek/Gamer Girls are not a threat to anything/anyone”
How are they a threat to anyone? They’ve been around since gaming itself and the world hasn’t exploded :iconfacepalmplz:

“Sexism/racism/bullying/homophobia in gaming culture are problems we need to address”
Agreed.

“G/L/B/T should be allowed to marry anywhere in my country”
Agreed.

“Religion in general needs to stop forcing itself onto everyone else”
Agreed.

“Obama has done a decent job thus far”
Agreed.

“Justin Beiber is not the worse singer in the world”
I don’t care for him and his music but people should just stop whining. The jokes and memes got old really fast and most of them weren’t even that funny to begin with. We get it; he’s gay/sounds like a girl/sucks/whatever just let it go already.

“There are worse actresses than Kristin Stewart”
I don’t like her acting but people should just stop whining already. I’m seriously sick of seeing memes joking about how “everything has more emotions than her”.

“Family Guy is not funny”
It’s funny sometimes but I don’t really find it to be the “funniest show ever”. It’s not really something I like to watch regularly.

“Batman is becoming over-saturated”
I totally agree. I love Batman and he’s my favorite super-hero but I’m sick of how they treat him like a god. I really would like to see more of the other DC heroes; it’s always Batman this and Batman that. The only thing we’ve seen of other DC heroes lately has been on Young Justice, Green lantern and the DC shorts which is small compared to all the Batman stuff we’ve seen (movies, videogames, Lego stuff, various cartoons, etc.).

Lol, the zelda cartoon isn't the worst thing to happen to the Zelda franchise... I agree, actually. While it was rather bad, it's much like the Super Mario Super show... You just get some friends, and watch it. Just laugh at all the stupid things and have a good time. If you take it seriously like other Zelda things, sure, it's bad, but if you look at it for what it is and treat it as such, it can be hilarious.
