Does learning spoilers for a show like Game of Thrones or a movie like Avengers: End Game make the movie less suspenseful/have lesser impact on the viewer? Does not paying attention to the TV show you're watching make the show less coherent for you and make you not know the meaning behind certain actions?
My friend argues that even though he's spoiled himself basically on the entire show (with REALLY important spoilers for a very unexpected twist) and was playing the show in a second tab/going on his phone during the show he was 1. Not missing stuff, 2. Understood everything in the story anyways (he didn't) 3. Not paying attention to something you're supposed to doesn't change the experience, and 4. Spoilers don't make the stories less engaging.
I think he's completely wrong. What do you think. Bait WON'T be ignored.
imo getting spoiled does make the story less engaging
like why should i be hyped for what a character does if i know he will fail or he will die?
it can also take away the surprise.why would i be shocked or surprised if i already know what's gonna happen?for example i wansn't intrigued by the ending of GoT season 5 bcos i was spoiled so i knew what will happen
End game spoiler: thanos joined the avengers, yep u heard it right
when i see spoilers like 'thanos dies in infinity war' its very vague - i can handle spoilers and still watch it with no difference
its like football game for me, like lets say i miss match and i already know score i still watch highlights
