Little Bobby Tables' mom strikes again.
Is it because of your mother that you say like the OP is suggesting you respond to trolls with me?
Quality frequently doesn't abide by a rule of progress. It is okay to continue to play old games and not treat it as a commentary on new ones. There were some real gems that were produced back then. Keeping them alive for the next generation is a noble end in itself. Recognizing that is not criticism of games that have been produced more recently. It is merely proper acknowledgment of the quality of those games.
I see that the creator of the poll got that Data was not a "possession" but didn't quite get Roddenberry's point that he could even be considered a "loved one."
You're going to get a lot of replies about U.S.-centric or U.S.-favoring media. And there's some truth to that. But a much bigger issue, methinks, is that the modern American media is _really_ lazy. It takes legwork to sift through gigabytes of information and follow up on leads. On the other hand, checking Twitter is trivial -- and it even comes in chunks of the right size. My grandfather used to criticize the news for "man on the street interviews" because it was really easy to do but virtually devoid of content. I think the same criticism applies to tweets, emails, random and radical guests (or worse, celebrities), and most everything else they do, these days. But this sort of non-news constitutes the bulk of American media on a good day.
None of this is to say that there was anything damning, vindicating, or otherwise valuable in the last batch. Merely, I wouldn't make inferences from the media's relative silence regarding the content.
Hamsters on wheels. I feed them alfalfa and call them all Harvey, starting with Harvey 0. I zero-index my hamsters because it makes me feel like I'm conserving something.
