Thank you for such an elegant response. Please stop spamming. Go stick to RM if all you are capable of saying is "You're an idiot."
I saw a slight haze in the hotel bathroom this morning after I took a shower, have I discovered a new planet?

It's not spam. I have absolutely no idea where to start with your crap. This thread shouldn't exist anyway. Zelda is in no way representative of real life.

I say again,

/thread.

Good thing it is about FET in popular culture and not real life application. ;]

The game can be considered in ways to be a computer simulation for perspective theory.

That it happens to be a children's game is inconsequential.

What about the fact that if you sail west, you eventually end up in the east?

No, he's right. The upper boards are not for spam posts. If you have no idea where to start, then don't. Consider this a warning.

That would be a simulation of the fabric of space-time bending back upon itself.

Thank god,i was worried there for second.
As for a flat earth in popular culture i have never heard of it.Most games either have a flat map because i imagine its easier to put in a rectangle(See overworld rpg maps where the land is flat but you can still circle the world) or will overtly annouce the world is round(see animal crossing and mario galaxy.)

As much as this argument is actually rather a good question, games dont take into account curvature for a round planet generally because its just a detail, why have it curved as it does actually take more work then needed to add a pointless detail, and adding more coding into a program could just cause more bugs later on when they update or change said game causing problems with the said coding.

World of Warcraft for example is a VERY large mapped game with multiple zones that makes the planet wide and large, including three continents so far on the world of -azeroth- as its called, they dont add curvature in the distance because the zones eventually end out at sea or the ocean. However its widely known the planet in World of Warcraft is spherical from multiple models of the planet actually inside the game including in the dungeons and in other areas where actual globes of the planet are found. The reason they dont add curvature is because the length of the planet must eventually end in the game and cant continuously sphere around itself.

Or because the areas that they load at any one time are so small that no curvature would be visible in either a flat or round model.

Even so there are very few RE games. The only one that comes to mind is spore (however no one likes that game).
I don't remember anything. Well, I do, but it's really vague. Like I was on drugs the whole time.

Flight simulator X is RE. It's about the most accurate you'll get.

Except the RE part. Unless it is accurate to some other pseudo-earth.

What FE game have you seen that is correct in every way without actually warping it's existence to simulate the correct landmasses?

Oh wait... none.

Spores a pretty round earth game, I attempted to make a planet flat using buildings, but was unable because the system would make the buildings seem as if they were facing up.
Vongeo is a wanker, he wears a wanker hat; he always smells like urine and he thinks the Earth is flat.

No longer is this sentence is cut in half. Jekra!

What proof do you have for this statement other than your pre-disposed view towards the shape of the earth (Which are day by day being disproven. I honestly don't see how you can keep this shit up)?
