Today's Off Topic is a special request from Kotaku community beardmaster ShiggyNinty. He asked me if we could have an Off Topic about beards, and I said, 'maybe'. Now I'm saying yes. This may seem like a little bit of a male-dominated talking point but, ladies, I want your input as well. Do you like beards, are beards stupid? What are the best beards?
And gentlemen — have you ever grown a beard? What kind of beard was it? Was it itchy?
Let's just talk beards in general. Let's discuss our favourite beards, or beard grooming tips.
Myself? I've never really tried to grow a beard, I always give up when it gets itchy, because it tends to make me 'hella' grumpy. (I say the word 'hella' now.)
I have grown a pretty meaty moustache before though...
