Title: Why is 'I Hate Geoff' featured?
Post by: 10000truths on August 17, 2012, 09:35 am
Even if it's a joke, it's not appropriate, and can still be classified as hateful. This isn't something that should be featured.

Btw, what about Kill Bieber by Lumberjay?

I unfeatured it. Apparently, there needs to be put in place a rule against featuring games with inappropriate titles.

-_- It wasn't aimed at Geoff, it's about a guy named Geoff who ruined someones life. That was the joke

The title can be greatly misleading.

The title can be greatly misleading.

As could Kill Bieber by Lumberjay, which was misleading, yet we never unfeatured that.

I don't think the game is feature worthy anyway

well I think it is. If you'd actually bothered to look at the description luigi, you'd see it wasn't aimed towards Geoff on sploder

I have read the description. However, even if it's a joke, it shouldn't be something to put up as a game title, much less show it to all of Sploder on the featured page. I'm sure 'Feed Justin Bieber Poop' was a joke too, and the creator didn't actually feel that way towards Justin Bieber. However, that doesn't make it any less appropriate.

As for 'Kill Bieber' by lumberjay, I have personally never seen it on the Featured page. Perhaps it was featured while I was on vacation, but I keep the same stance on it.

It was featured around the '12 EGD featuring thing. :/

Aren't all "Kill JB" games banned? How is it that one was featured?

It wasn't JB, it was Frederick Bieber, and I can't remember the storyline.

Personally, I think that any game that is obviously aimed towards sounding malicious for the sake of getting attention, even if it's designed to be misleading, is a poor excuse. Yeah, maybe 'I hate geoff' and 'Kill Bieber' aren't referring to Geoffrey Gaudrealt and Justin Bieber, respectively, but the title was obviously made with the intention of sounding like so.

I don't have much of a problem with misleading titles in games; I already have two such games, as a matter of fact. However, it should still be kept appropriate.

To add on to this, stating in a game 'I Hate___" is greatly frowned upon as whoever you're aiming this to could be greatly embarrassed. More extreme actions could take place, even if it seems fairly unlikely.

It's aimed at nobody real, I wouldn't do anything like that to a real person

Maybe not you in particular, but some cold-hearted person may do it.

Ok, the way you worded it seemed like you thought I had aimed it a real person

Actually, I did think you aimed it at somebody. (Not our Geoff) Well, thank you for clarifying that it wasn't aimed towards anyone, I thought you aimed it at somebody in your school or something.

JB Justin Bieber, Frederick Bieber FB. Jb can not be Frederick Bieber, Geoff can be Geoff. It was obviously a joke, though, but some people don't read stuff and make accusations, so... I'm not sure on this.

I remember Lumberjay asking if he could make a game like that long before he published it. You all gave him the okay, so don't unfeature it now.
