  1. do tss writers get paid for writing or something

    why're you putting stupid clickbait like "hur hur movie sonic best design ever" on the site

    you're not kotaku

      i can confirm that they don’t get paid

      it’s hip to imply your opinions are objective fact, y’know

      Opinion Pieces are things and TSS has had plenty in the past.

       

      I mean it's definitely clickbaity but opinion pieces, if they differ from the common opinion, are kind of bound to come off that way automatically.  And I mean the title does say "might be", it could've well said "is" if they really wanted to go full clickbait.

      I mean, at least The Spin articles gave me the idea it was an opinion piece, and I could approach them with an open mind. This article rubbed me a little wrong, though.

      It's his opinion and he's entitled to it but it's poorly-argued and sloppily written. I felt embarrassed reading it.

      Full disclaimer I didn't read the article because they lost me with the entire premise, but it seemed obvious that it was an opinion piece and not for me so I just like... moved on lol

      (I will say only the writer knows whether they did it for the sake of writing a provocative article or whether they truly love the design more than any others, so if it's the former, shame shame shame and I withdraw my defense lol)

      The main thing that kinda irked me was when they said game sonic's gloves were huge when tbh its just his hands in general that really are just that big, along with his feet

      It's ultimately a lot of made-up complaints about the game design (ex. getting bothered over Sonic's shoes never getting dirtied in the games, you might as well complain that the toys in Toy Story aren't covered in grime, peeled paint, and fingerprints for 95% of the film) and making an easy target out of the old movie design, neither of which correlate with how that makes the Hesse design the best one.

      I fully disagree with the article, but getting your knickers in a twist because you think it's being presented as fact instead of an opinion piece is really dumb.

      how did you guys even find the strength to read past the title

      Maybe this is dumb, but honestly I would prefer if they just put "Opinion:" at the start of the title. I know it's obviously opinion, but it would slightly soften the blow of the article being what it is, at least for me.

      No, we don't get paid.

      Yes, it's an attention-grabbing headline.

      It's also probably his actual opinion, so (to those who are being mean about it) please simmer down. I don't even agree with him, but it's been labeled as such, and he's entitled to it.

      The writing staff is entirely voluntary. We do not get compensated for writing baity headlines or anything, so I just wanted to put that idea to rest. 

      If we did, things could get pretty messy. 

    14. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Monkey Destruction Switch Yeah, no. It's a subjective matter. Putting "opinion" in the headline to offset whatever disagreement you might have is unnecessary. Soften what blow, exactly?

      it's nothing personal against the writer so many personalities in this fanbase are just hot take machines so when i see more of that brain just shuts off

      It would certainly offset the blow of the atrocious title.
