This thing about people trying to avoid spoilers in TV shows movies and video games is kind of unrealistic and it's very unmarketable how is one person going to be interested in something when either either entertainment is not being looked at as a whole but knowing nothing, and if someone looks at a partial piece of something like cover art or advertisement and being not interested enough then how is that fair?

When I look at a video game story or a TV show or movie as a whole at times AKA spoilers then I become interested then it was marketed to me and this is kind of the purpose of entertainment and I find it okay.

Find it silly that people try to avoid spoilers and then they try to go to a store to buy some TV show or movie or video game and then having no information about it expecting to pick the exact thing that would be their fitting and then like having a great time like with every single selection they would ever make knowing nothing- in the sense and even a literal- that doesn't make any sense because that's unrealistic in a sense the idea to avoid spoilers is an unrealistic and unmarketable thing and very and I actually could cost people money because their product is not being bought because people don't want to know anything about it until they have bought it.

But when you think about it how are people to buy something if they're not interested or intrigued enough if it's not being looked at as a whole, has this not been done already?
Possibly in your lives, the most beloved arts you guys know was probably already spoiled to you before you watched or played it.

I know this has happend to me before, I mean, sh*t, some of the marketing of unique games comes from YouTubers and twitch channels, being advertised to people.

There many things I wanted to get because it was shown to me.

Plus I do not mind spoilers, I like wanting to piece together all the nook and crannies of something, even hidden meanings from someone who wrote the story.

I mean... for games I just look at some game play and read the description it gives... If It looks good then I give it a shot to see if I enjoy it or not.

I don't like spoilers because I want to find out myself.

The only time I'd spoil a game is if I don't really care enough to find out myself.

I think you thinking about it to deeply, say for example if i don't want to know if a character is going to die, to me that's a spoiler knowing too much and leaving nothing to be unexpected, when i watch the trailer and then from there i make the decision if it looks interesting or not to watch, once i decide i'm going to see it, or play it, i don't want to know anything until i actually do, so i can be pleasantly surprised, knowing whats going to happen just takes the suspense out of it, at least that's what i think~

Again, thinking your going to be surprised by every choice you make is unrealistic.
Have you read the bottom part?

However its not impossible to be surprised by something new, but attempting to put that kind of feeling above other elements of art and entertainment is bad.

Yes i did, but i simply just disagree, i think there is something fulfilling, about seeing something for the first time, because if i had known what would happen its just not as intriguing, or shocking. However i can understand where you're coming from to a certain extent, but i think each way is an art of its own, basically to each his own, Most of the shows, games, movies, and anime i've seen weren't ever spoiled for me, and im glad they weren't, but if you prefer that then maybe that for you, i just prefer not to know.

Oh? Then what if I told you a story that would interest you in a product?

I have no problems with spoilers. Doesn't really matter.

Yes, spoilers pull more people towards a product, however, they also harm the experience of the individual (this shouldn't need to be explained). Going in fresh provides the purest, "intended" experience (usually) and that is how I like to encounter things.

For me personally, I am well enough versed in entertainment to generally be able to tell whether I will like something with virtually no information. Tell me the tone, genre and general reception and that is usually all I need.

This has all to do with this conversation, woman!

You disagree with me but I can prove you wrong by simply interesting you in something you no nothing of.

Like the Theorized story Of Megaman And Megaman X.

Haha XDD ok dude i think you need to take a chill pill its not a big deal, I believe you're misunderstanding what i'm saying completely, I don't mind watching trailers for a movie or, descriptions, for a show but HUGE spoilers like what character from the walking dead is going to die or if someone in DBZ its going to do some amazing new technique, or if a new character is going to be introduce as a villain etc... i'd rather find out while i'm watching it.
however (correct me if im wrong) but what you're referring too is a product which would be somewhat irresponsible in my opinion if someone didn't research what the product does and the effects, like medicine or vaccines, even something as simple as shampoo could cause problems, even if you're choosing between PS3 or Xbox you have to look up the results of facts, but when it comes TV, anime etc.. i'd rather the story not be spoiled.

Your kinda ignoring everything I'm saying.

As I said putting these "No spoilers" above everything else is really bad and you could miss something you would probably totally love and buy more of.

Also, can you prove me wrong? Go ask any Gaming Youtuber then talk to me. xD

No because Its a matter of opinion not a fact, just like you can't prove me wrong, i like what i enjoy same as you, markiplier for example may agree with you but that doesn't change how i feel about it, at the end of the day who cares how people enjoy things, the fact is we just do, i just dont like story spoilers, markiplier could agree with me but that wouldn't change how you feel about it right?
Also both Smike and markiplier (if i recall correctly) both said that they didn't read or look at any spoilers for five nights at freddys because they wanted to experience it on their own, im almost 100% sure they said that but i could be wrong.
