You're objectively wrong. I accept.
Debate Round No. 1
SeventhProfessor

Pro

Point I

Blake's 7 is widely recognized as the most revolutionary piece of science fiction television ever, introducing the concepts of seasonal cliffhangers, story arcs, and the first protagonist to be an actual antihero. Meanwhile, osu! is a rhythm game.

Point II

You may listen to music in osu!, but you'll never see or hear anything as glorious as Brian Croucher sharing the stage with people that actually know how to act [1].

osu! is a rhythm game, but it is more than a musical game full of circle jerking weeaboos who spam DT to get as much pp as possible on some TV Size anime opening. It's an art, an art of clicking circles. There are no other games that have implicated the intensity of aim, tap, reading, reaction, accuracy, self-mapping, with quite the same community, all under different songs. No other game is like it.

If I wanted to watch a popular sci-fi show from the 60s and 70s, I could just watch Star Trek.

The use of the words weeaboo and anime, by definition, negates your claims that osu is good. As for your second section, Blake's 7 beats Star Trek in basically every way. According to George Takei, Blake's 7 had better dialogue [1]. Blake's 7 also has a better theme [1] [2]. I bring this up since music is clearly important to CON.

Finding videos for the theme, I found plenty of comments about the show, many of which stated that Star Trek was more enjoyable. It was a show that arose about 12 years after Star Trek, and after Star Wars, as it was a clear "bandwagon jump" with a low budget cast. A show that cost open space in the hangouts at the feet of trolls is obviously trash.

While I would normally agree, the fact that this comes from whiteflame means it is objectively wrong

7 points to Pro. Reasons for voting decision: According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Ooh, black and yellow! Let's shake it up a little. Barry! Breakfast is ready!

[*Reason for non-removal*] No RFD is required on this debate, and so RFDs on this debate are not moderated.

Do you know how difficult it is to write any kind of feasible argument with only 500 characters?

I've got a special surprise for next round

I could've posted my argument last night, but I'm trying to draw out the time so I have more time to do something that I have planned for R2, which involves a special surprise that compliments both osu! and Blake's 7 ;3

I've seen terms and conditions for debates that had more characters than this...

You know, I had some big thing going on for this debate, but with a character limit of 500, I can't post links, I can't make much of a statement other than a paragraph and a finishing comment.

What is this XD

Reasons for voting decision: Full RFD here: http://www.debate.org/forums/miscellaneous/topic/95141/ Pro's R1 argument regarding the revolutionary nature of B7 "introducing the concepts of seasonal cliffhangers, story arcs, and the first protagonist to be an actual antihero.", had the greatest impact in this debate and wasn't refuted. Con did a decent job with the Star Trek argument, and making the case that osu is unique and fun, but it wasn't enough to overcome ignoring the above argument entirely.
