False. There is Team Fortress 2, Counterstrike Source, Day of Defeat Source, and many others just as good.

Not AS good as the originals but still superb.

I'm pissed off about 20,000 musical "genres." And WTF is difference between indie and alternative music? What kind of self-hating demented moron would waste their time even trying to make sense of the insane categorical geneology like the one below:

People who have 'guilty pleasures' annoy me. In fact the whole concept of guilty pleasures annoys me.

I just read through this whole fucking thread. And I have to say bravo whoever did it, I passed up the opportunity to have sex just to hear you whine and drivel on with 104 things that piss you off. I want those hours of my life back dude .

Or at least do another one.

However

There are a certain bunch of people who seem to think music died in 1990s. That nothing since can even touch what was around in the 70s. The sort of people who consider Guns & Roses and Nirvana the last 'good bands' to come out.

I mean how depressing must it be if you are a fan of music and your list of favourite albums looks like this

1. Pet Sounds
2. Sgt Pepper
3. Dark Side Of The Moon
4. IV
5. Tommy

I mean by all means enjoy those albums if you do but just bear in mind that if you can't even bring yourself to call an album that has sold less than 10 million copies one of your favourites then i'm not going to take you seriously.

The same sort of people who moan all todays music sucks and complain about there being nothing good on the radio or TV but don't bother looking anywhere else.
The sort of people who deride hip-hop because it doesn't have 'real musicians'
The sort of people who hate electronica because 'there's no emotion in pushing buttons'

Basically people who have buried their head in the sand who clutch their copies of Led Zeppelin II close to their chests complaining that music isn't as good as it was back then.

I'm in my 30s , so is Jackhammer , so is R-T we're always looking for new things to enjoy. I might be more cynical and harder to impress than when I was when I was 20/21 but the enthusiasm is there. There's just no excuse for not making any effort to look if you consider yourself a fan of music.
Normally I would say people who complain about music. But your pretty right on with this. This is most prevalent I feel like with your 40 to 50 yr olds. The kind who love the rolling stones, n Creedence. And say "I turned my radio off in 1980 and haven't turned it back on since". Then you hopelessly try and turn them onto more modern music with a similar sound example, Blind Melon (holy man). And the ignorantly pretend to not enjoy, all the while tapping their foot.

One thing that I really find irritating is skits on hip hop albums. Seriously, all we care about is the music. I always skip or delete them.
