A Conversation for Inverse Cool Theory
Czarniwoop Started conversation Apr 26, 2007
Shirley, this is just an extension of your main principle of "Cool is not only subjective, but relative, and only ever applies to that exact moment." and "The definition of what is cool can be vary dramatically in different genres and cultures."? Fantasy gaming may be considered uncool by some, but that doesn't make it objectively so. Thus for those who play Rocket-Propelled Grenades, rollplaying is just cool, and for those who don't, it just isn't. Therefore there's no need for this whole un-uncool thing, since coolness is always just in terms of social context.
