    I as Finn was quite ok with word "forum" as it may, it was quite common to see it written in this form. Correct Finnish word now days stand as "foorumi". It's said that you spell it with "double alphabet", so it has to be "long" and ending is making sounding more Finnish.

    AI suggests real video in progress counter: 2 "How Bethesda Broke Me, And Here's Why I'll Keep Buying Their Games Anyway" is HILARIOUS. I would love for you to do more of this kind of stuff, the two videos you've made with GPT-3 are fantastic. With my limited experience with GPT-2, I definitely have to agree that AI is good for coming up with a series of words that'll INSPIRE you to think of a good idea. I'm not a game developer YET, but I tried to use GPT-2 to think of some cool ideas for items I could use in the future, and I'm honestly not sure what a "skeleton chest" is, but you bet there's gonna be one in my game if I ever make one. There's so many directions you could take those two words and all of them sound cool as hell.

    I....disagree about the disagreement on Mass Effect 3 being a mistake. Mainly because within the games industry, the entire trend of predatory monetization to extract tens of thousands of dollars out of vulnerable people was initially tested with Dead Space 3 (where it mostly failed) and Mass Effect 3 (where it was an enormous success where some people spent around $50k on micropayments). So, while we can argue on whether the story told my ME3 was good or not, the kinds of toxicity the game enabled in the industry is hardly anything to be proud over.

    Holy crap, a company is responsible for the destruction it causes? Europeans really do things differently over there. Here, you'd probably get sued or shot or something if a company finished up eating all the natural resources and you happened to leave nearby. Or they'd just shrug and go "well that oil will clean itself up i guess" and leave you to die.
