Bioshock is a work of art

FourTrouble
SeelTheMan

Bioshock is a survival horror first-person shooter video game designed by Ken Levine and developed by 2k Boston. The game plays off of Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged: led by Andrew Ryan, industrialists, artists, and scientists have retreated from the world and built Rapture, a dystopian city at the bottom of the Atlantic. When the game begins, however, the city and its citizens have been c...

The majority of Rap and the entirety of Death Metal is not music. Pro=True, Con=False.

Rap is a... interesting brand of music, if you can call it that. It supposedly is a branch of hip-hop, but original rap was very innocent. Nowadays, you're more likely to vomit listening to it. The sheer amount of profanity and the degradation of women is an absolute atrocity. I'm not saying it's all bad, I happen to like a few Rap songs: Mr. Lonely by Akon Don't Matter by Akon Mr. Postman by Lil Wayne So Sick by Ne-Yo These songs I enjoy because there is extremely little (if any) pro...

No offence to any Hunger Games fans, I am one too. This round is for accepting. Rounds 2 & 3 are for arguments. Round 4 is for your closing arguments. I wish my opponent luck. :)...

No E's Allowed

TheSaint
imabench

Both sides of this debate must write cohesive 1000 character stories without a single use of the letter E. If either side uses the letter E they lose and should be voted against in such a manner. For example: "Mary had a little lamb." would be grounds for disqualification due to the E in little. "Mary had a small lamb" is acceptable. Also, misspellings cannot be used to circumvent the rule. "Mary had a littl lamb" would also be grounds for disqualification since the E is implied. Quite ob...

Science Fiction Cannot Be Literature

Hatstand
zebrafinchqueen

This is something I've seen flying around for a while: science fiction is given a bad name in literature. It's been carried to extremes, with some authors refusing to admit that their books are science fiction at all. I am not arguing that all science fiction is literature, any more than all realism is literature, but that the terms 'science fiction' and 'literature' aren't mutually exclusive. Literature is defined as: 1. Writings in which expression and form, in connection with ideas of...

Con Air: Great Movie or Greatest Movie?

jessecurry
sllewuy

Con Air is the best all-around movie ever, not because it is the greatest in every category, but because it is great in every category. Con Air has comedy, it has a love story, it has a redemption story, it has action, it has an underdog, it has Cameos galore, it has a great sound track, it has lovable characters, it has villains that one can really hate. I believe that Con Air has everything one could want in a movie, therefor I nominate it for best all-around movie ever....
