Your pointless thoughts & observations

I just saw a squirrel get pushed out of a tree by another squirrel. 

 

 

 

This country is so fucking divided.

pop music is too overt and banal. even if it's good initially, not only it gets 'old' quick, but I feel shame later. something like a post-wank shame

Post-Wank would be a pretty good genre name imo.

I've been having less pointless thoughts since the upgrade has made my WATMM experience so much less enjoyable

^ I'm still getting used to it myself. On the other hand it's quite interesting. The cosmetic makeover of watmm revealed some long-forgotten embarrasments.... like the old nicknames lol

My only gripe is the loss of My Content.  Instead of having all threads I participate in on one screen I have to visit each forum individually to see if there are any new replies.

But the little red notification that appears every time I'm quoted provides a small burst of dopamine that was absent before.

Agreed. I'd like if the "my content" thing was reinstated.

Not gonna lie, I never even knew about the My Content thing, but it sounds nice and my newfound appreciation for the red alerts is well placed imo

2019 is transpiring to be the year my passion for gaming might be dwindling. Today is the first time my PC did not meet the minimum requirements for a new release. And the AAA sector of the industry is showing signs of disarray and potential collapse, especially with big names like EA, Activision, Blizzard, Epic, Bethesda, etc. Also, the lot of the gamer community are self-entitled assholes, not to mention tend to affiliate with the alt-right.

There's probably a psychological parallel between game addiction and drug addiction. Regardless, for me it feels like it's fading. That's not to say I'm just gonna suddenly decide to quit games forever out of the blue one day. But at the same time I just can't play a game for more than 2 hours in a day anymore. As opposed to late 2008 thru 2011 when open-world games were really taking off - I'd be up playing them for several hours straight until like 3 AM on some days.

 I lost tons of interest in games 3 or 4 years back when starting uni. They just weren't fun anymore. I don't think it was because of starting uni, but I finally  got rbored of AAA mechanics. Take Bethesda for instance. imho their best game was morrowind, with lots of experimental things that were fun that you'd never see in their games today. It's like they have it all down to a science and only indie games innovate. Since Oblivion I've kept getting excited for new elder scrolls stuff but I have no expectations anymore. It's a shame really.

As far as the crash I've been hearing that for years. If it does happen it'll be because of how watered down AAA games are now

I didn't play any video game during 90% of my time in uni, but now i'm enjoying them again, It feels really weird to go years without playing one. The first game I played when I started again was Deus Ex 1. I had never played it before, and the gameplay still holds up. After beating it I wanted to play older games since I didn't realize on how much I missed out.

Do you find games boring now or do you feel you just outgrew it?  Which kinda seem like the same option.  Or did you play it recently?

The latter I think. I grew up with them, I had an Atari at the age of 6 or 7, followed by a Commodore64, an Amiga 500, Megadrive, PS1 & PS2 and N64. Then the Gamecube, which was the last console I bought. I still find some games interesting, I think because my 'peers' (people in chatmm) discuss them. I'll do a bit of research, find out what the setting and storyline is, watch a little bit of gameplay on youtube, just to satisfy my curiousity. But sinking hours and hours into a videogame now would give me existential dread, like I'm wasting time I could be spending on music and art stuff. And as far as escapism goes, I have a shitload of books I still haven't read.
