I have noticed on these forums that many people use falacious reasoning to argue their point. What common fallacies have you experienced on these forums and in what context were they used?
I'll start off with an example:
"Previous games X, Y, and Z were 'hyped' and were disappointments. Therefore all games with high 'hype' will be disappointments."
This argument is an example of hasty generalization. Even though previous games were 'hyped' and disappointments, that does not necessarily mean that all future games that are 'hyped' will be disappointments.
I'll even give a real life example that disproves this reasoning. Lebron James was a very 'hyped' basketball player even before leaving high school. After many great statistical seasons in the NBA with many accomplishments including 2x MVP awards, it's generally safe to conclude that Lebron James has matched his pre-NBA 'hype' and some can argue he has even exceeded his 'hype'.
