Now you're just being silly. All Wizards are absolutely required to wear big pointy hats, and Jiggy explains why
Anyhow, I was personally impressed with Bubblegumshoe, so I'm not surprised at all the nominations it got. I don't think it's my kind of game, though, I just think it is really good at what it does. I was rather underwhelmed by 7th Sea, but I know John Wick has a lot of fans, so I'm not shocked to see it get nominated.

Then come back and tell me that you'd be willing to rudisplork an Orcus into my milk while loling in front of a continually-reseting Summon Monster I trap which summons nesting doll Orcuses while chanting hymns to the Almighty Holy Skeld.

You needed an example of a Director's Cut people got angry about and you choose a 1999 re-release of a movie I hadn't even heard of and needed to look up?
Granted, that's pretty easy to do, since I barely ever watch movies, so chances are most examples you can think of I've never heard of. I mainly stick with plays, which I guess makes me an Old School person. Everything was so much better before those awful rollplaying movie people came along.
But even I can think of an example of a director's cut of a movie that people got angry about. And the example I'm thinking of predates the director's cut of Last of the Mohicans. The Star Wars Special Editions enraged generations of self-proclaimed fans. You could almost say that George Lucas shot first when it came to often-criticized re-edits.
I will patiently await new Rebirth specials:
Only when all of those titles have been released will I be ready to jump into DC comics.

So, in summary, my assessment of Apple's various product lines are:
Mac Pro: Great at what it does, though somewhat pricy.
MacBook Pro: Spectacular at what it does, though somewhat pricy.
iPad (12.9 inch version and 9.7 inch versions): Overpriced and a complete scam. Anyone who bought such a device in the last few years without a colossal+ discount was conned.
Hmm, notice anything odd about that lineup? One of those devices is not like the others.
Iphones are actually pretty good at what they do. So are Macs, and iPad Minis.
Full-sized iPads, though...not so much. Just a couple weeks ago I got an HP x360 2-in-1 computer that's the same size as the larger iPads. Its keyboard can fold back so that it can be used like a tablet, but when ya need it it has the full functionality and power as a desktop in the size of an iPad. It also has vastly more powerful hardware, four times the storage of even the most expensive iPad Pros, and the parts can be replaced and repaired more easily. And it will last a lot longer, both in terms of hardware (more powerful hardware so it won't need to be replaced as quickly) and software (Apple tends to drop support for iPads after around 5 years. HP and Microsoft would support my computer for at least 10 years, except that I also installed Linux so that I can get free support indefinitely.)
The iPad Mini is actually uniquly valuable among Apple's tablet offerings. While there are plenty of cheap and mid-range 2-in-1 laptops which completely eclipse the larger iPads, the iPad mini is smaller than almost any laptop. There are plenty of 13 inch laptops (the largest iPad size), and you can get 2-in-1s in many configurations down to around 9 inches. You'd be hard pressed, though, to find a decent 8-inch laptop on the market, so the iPad Mini is good for people who need a device of that size.
Although given that the thread title asks who "just plays," I'd be remiss not to remind people of this exchange:
