Comment Wah! It's Unfair! (Score 1) 729

If a group of people enjoy building systems and playing games that are beyond the ability of a bunch of bird flappers and mole whackers, why not?

Does that mean we have to dumb down game specs so Rufus the Dufus can play it on a cheap LG tablet?

For what some tablet-pokers spend on Starbucks or Chipotle every year they could probably afford a decent Xidax or Alienware that would at least get them into the mix, though not in the uber 1337 league. You get what you pay for.

OTOH, maybe the games, at least some of them, that have way more depth and complexity than Farmville are just "too hard" for some folks.

So what? Everyone can't shoot hoops against Labron. Everyone can't afford an F1 car. Life just isn't fair, in jobs, relationships, or gaming. Get over it.

TFA is right to point out the chat and social media alternatives. Besides quicker (and often friendlier) response, it's kind of nice to have a support tech or engineer paste a code fix or solution example straight into a chat window for instant use. This particularly works wonders with a certain German electrical, medical, and automation megalith who I will not name.
