Out of all the things that could have been added to this site, we have a games button? Why do we need one? Is it advertising?

I think the two sites have the same owner but I'm not sure. PoeJoe can probably fill you in on the details later, as well as what the owner had for breakfast.

After checking it out, I'm not sure how useful this particular addition is. It's certainly no armorgames or newgrounds, but I do keep accidentally clicking on it instead of Forums so it's working as far as website hits are concerned.

No, you're right. The two sites do have the same owner. Hell, at this point, he may as well add the option to buy cars and provide a link on the top to his car site.

That's exactly what I want! A debate site to challenge and stretch my understanding of the universe, and a free online game site, to make me drool out any usable brain cells.

And there's a chance I could buy a car at the same time?! Holy mutated carrots, sign me up!!!

This is either a scripting error or a sneaky move by Phil to advertise Dork.com.

Also, the games button is annoying. I'm used to clicking the top button on the far right for the forums. Now I have to be precise.

All the new games tab has done for me is to allow the school filter to block most of DDO's pages whereas it was a mostly unblocked site before.

Yea, I saw that games link and got annoyed. Seriously, wtf? Why advertise games on a debate site whose purpose is to make profit and the main demographic is teenage boys who tend to like games?

Yeah I know right!

Yeah I know! Screw halo 3, COD MW2, or SNES Roms, what I need is some good ol' Money Miner

Sorry, I'm not being a licker or a creep, but this is a welcome addition as far as I'm concerned. I like games, especially the older ones - they remind me of my younger days - "pass me my pipe and slippers, darling!"
