    In psychology there is a concept known as the Forer effect wherein people will identify with a weakly worded personality description as though it was tailored for them.

    I think we may have stumbled upon the equivalent for computer game fandom. However it will need to be refined.

    Similarly the Forer effect is one of the reasons horoscopes and the like are observed to be junk, I am drawn to wonder if there might also be something like that here.

    Reason for EOF. Best to have something potentially halfway amusing here it from time to time.

    Will the Steam controller's haptic feedback allow us to feel that glorious beard?

    One can only hope, after seeing that I might have to start shaving for I will never be able to match that.
