    Hell, the Arkhamverse series leaned in that direction with Arkham Knight since Joker's infected blood apparently leads to you being haunted by his ghost and him gradually possessing you.

    I mean in fairness, Gotham City is also host to some nameless horrors from the stars.



    Ghosts in your blood is hardly as worrisome.


    EDIT: ... this is far larger than I remember it being why tho
    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

    The video that sparked this conversation is a bit more shallow than her normal videos in that series, Since she usually doesn't declare a trope outright bad.

    A more insightful example of her Trope Talks would be this:

    Yeah Gotham is, in general, screwed.

    I find the topic addressed just tends to get people's hackles up, whatever opinion one has about it. It's one of the more visceral pop culture contentions, even when someone's trying to be level headed about it.

    I've seen a couple of her vids way back when. She seemed alright, it just wasn't content I was that interested in regularly following. "Tropes" aren't something I tend to think overmuch on. But if she does thorough break downs of them and it gets the views, nothing wrong with that, really. Again, I'd assume it's more for people who are learning about this stuff for the first time, or who just love discussing the topic (tropes in this case), and maybe they just don't have anyone else to talk to about it, so listening to YouTube vids is the next best thing.

    The Canadian version substitutes passive-aggressive for aggressive, but is otherwise the same. Unsurprisingly. ^_^

    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    Star Wars: Visions was a fun, breezy experience.

    Lots of fun ideas and nice animations.
