Just curious...

I like reading spoilers for the most part, as they make me look forward to a game/movie/whatever even more, even if I know what's going to happen from doing so. Even if I know what will happen, the feeling I get from actually seeing it is different from and more exciting than reading or hearing about it, so if I found out that Darth Vader is Luke's father, I would be hyped and look forward to seeing that scene even more instead of feeling bad for ruining the surprise myself.

The only times I would avoid spoilers are when:
1. I got the game myself and is playing it.
2. It's the last episode of a TV series or something, and I'll be able to see it very soon or right away.

Also, I marked that particular part as spoilers in order to be on the safe side, even though it's common knowledge already...

I hate spoilers with a burning passion. I prefer to be slandered and insulted than to have something spoiled.

I miss the days where I could go into a game or movie knowing nothing.

I'm not sure if the two people who voted positively for the poll have balls or is just plain crazy...

I love spoilers. It's about the journey, not the outcome. I can enjoy the craft of the narrative more if I know how it ends.

But then you lose the thrill of the moment and the emotional ties that moment has for you. It's like someone telling you what's gonna happen on your next journey, what's the point of having it if you already know what happens?
