    In December 1882, the commission argued for substantial reductions. Protectionists in Congress by this time recognized that some type of reduction would be politically popular, but wanted to avoid a drastic cut. Lame-duck Republicans wanted to ensure that a tariff reduction passed before incumbent Democrats assumed control of Congress in the next session and lowered rates by a greater margin.
    The result was an enormously complicated and unpopular piece of legislation with no clear vision. Tariffs on some items were lowered. Others were inexplicably raised. Some goods had multiple tariffs rates placed on them to be applied in different locations with no clear reasoning. Tariff rates were reduced an average 1.47 percent, with most rates remaining around 35-40 percent.
    President Arthur was not the most enthusiastic supporter of tariff reduction, but he did feel that some meaningful reduction was needed and he recognized that the changes made by the “Mongrel Tariff” were insufficient. Thus, he directed U.S. Secretary of State Frederick Theodore Frelinghuysen to establish reciprocal trade agreements with other nations, especially those with raw material the U.S. needed. The reciprocal trade agreements allowed Arthur to amend the tariff without having to involve himself in a congressional battle over the issue.

    Favourites
    1: fallout 1 + 2(better atmosphere in FO1 than in FO2... )
    Note... I bought the American version of FO1. It has the best, most well done manual I have ever seen to date.
    2: Command And Conquer ( by far, still has the best atmosphere in the series)
    3: Jagged Alliance 2
    4: HL + mods
    5: EE (great multiplayer game)
    6: GT2 (for psx....spend a LOT of time with this game)
    7: GTA 3
    8: Shogun:total war
    9: Baldurs Gate 2
    10: C&C Red alert 1+2

    Biggest turn-offs /disappointments

    FOT (spending 1/3 of the game chasing... robots???! ...that just sucks)

    C&C tyberian sun (had been waiting for the game, since I finished C&C. units + design was a big turnoff and the storyline was unpersonal)

    Midtownmadness 2. Though it would be better than the first. I was WARY wrong.

    hmmmm...can't think of anything else.
    What are your biggest disappointments????

    Neverwinter Nights
    Black & White
    Enter the Matrix
    The soon to be released Full Throttle - Hell on Wheels (*groans*)

    I thought C&C Tiberium Sun was a pretty good game.

    Of course I used Sunedit 2K to edit units so they'd improve a lot more with experience, got rid of things I didn't like, added more units, and made them more realistic (added machine guns on tanks for example).

    One of the biggest complaints I have about RTS games is that units don't get better with combat experience.

    Well, can't really put them in a specific order...

    Planescape: Torment
    Fallout
    Warcraft III: Frozen Throne (Fun in LAN, campaign sucks, though)
    System Shock 2
    Thief: The Dark Project (I hear the sequel is better, never tried it...)
    Mafia
    Commander Keen 4 (It's been a long time since I last played, was fun though)
    Jedi Knight II MP (Mostly because I pwned! :wink: )
    Aliens vs. Predator
    Half-life: Opposing Force (the tutorial is teh win!)

    Funny. Only two RPGs.

    edit: removed the 'c__ word. That was mean. :cry:

    Arc = Arcanum, game created by Troika.

    EWR = Extreme Warfare Revenge which is a free on-line wrestling simulation. Most people ehre probably won't care for it; but as a wrestling fan it is one fo the top wrestling games created, and it doesn't involve the player wrestling. You basically act as a wrestling promoter. Cool stuff.
