Not a jerk. Sometimes, actually 20% of the time I'm a jerk all the time.

Slower reaction times of the elderly wouldn’t level the playing field.

Regardless of my title personal opinions do not reflect the views of Polygon as an entity, of which you’re most definitely aware.

That you’re taking an instance out of a whole movie(especially a part where it’s a gag that he waves and is dragged unexpectedly through the water) and saying it’s not as funny or clever as "my penis smells because I have no personal hygiene" is, in my opinion, ridiculous.

Here’s a gag from your golden age of John Candy comedy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvYtbd7YE3k

Loved this movie. Shame they cut the end sequence.

To me, that right there is beneath ‘stink dick’. I mean Jesus, 1988 is the year A Fish Called Wanda came out, so it’s not like great comedy wasn’t made in the 1980s.

How. How can that be below "stink dick"?

See, I’m not American which is implied by the last sentence. Back in the 80s there were no "stink dick" jokes, no required bong hits to add humour. It wasn’t as crass and relying on dumb off-colour jokes as it is today.

Come on man, this is supposed to be a professional website.

And what does my personal opinion in a comment section do to change that?

Compare it to any John Candy/Steve Martin movie from the 80s onwards. Movies were smarter back then.

The writers themselves even said this wasn’t planned from the start

They let the story take them where they needed to be. The story was fluid, it wasn’t an adaptation of a Tolkien book.

No. Because you’re pulling examples from a number of games which while in itself is fine doesn’t highlight how similar all those designs from AAA games are. You’re just taking the "leave games alone" slant without actually seeing the problem for yourself.
