I enjoy the riffing on scifi tropes and the show is mostly self-aware about Rick's faults, despite a part of the fandom not getting the point. I like the voice acting a lot. Some of the bullshitty aspects are things that you're apparently obligated to do to be an Adult Animated Comedy show being crass in a formulaic way, like the ridiculous amount of gore.

The Australian version was better though.

I tried it out the last time there was a big war and the game really is one of those things that aren't worth the time. I thought I'd like the game more if I could play it while jogging! All the progress is overcoming one gatekeeping mechanism or another. The wikis are full of the 'correct' playstyles, which just disincentivizes what I was after, the fantasy of freely adventuring through space.

Maybe if you got into the social side of it, but playing boardgames feels like it's superior at scratching that itch of getting to compete and collaborate with others in a game.

Lots of aspects I enjoyed other games do better. I liked space roaming and ship fitting, but honestly Star Control II was simpler and more fun with real sense of exploring the galaxy, that had interesting characters. Getting to influence '"real" events? Most good single player games. Collecting stuff with a crew? Animal Crossing, honestly.

Lots of things in Eve made me feel like "that's not why we play games".

When it's hot your organs expand (much like hot iron) and push the body juice out of the juicy holes to make more space. For similar reasons cows glow amber while milked.
