I can also say with confidence that Uncharted: Golden Abyss is one of the worst games I've ever played. One thought does not cancel the other.
With Max Payne, I see no reason why you can't admire the achievement of getting a PC game to run (and play) on a touchscreen device and, at the same time, suggest ways to improve the experience.
Jackass in what sense? As in stupid person? If that's the case, I don't think so, though it's nice to see we are resorting to name calling now. I'll refrain from doing so, though.
If you mean I'm being rude or coming off as pretentious, then I could agree. Only because other people are coming off the same way, though it's funny you only point that out in people you disagree with.
As for the rest of your post, it certainly doesn't apply to the gentleman I'm discussing with. Not when he literally says "in my opinion anyone complaining about this game is ridiculous. THIS IS ON A TELEPHONE.".
But yeah, I'm the jackass when I appropriately answear someone who calls me ridiculous and imply that I'm probably a kid who grew up with a phone in his hand, so I couldn't understand.
