            I'm one of those who had to fully shave their head at like 20, it didn't really affect my self-esteem because I saw it coming a mile away. My grandfather, older brother, father and uncles were all bald at a pretty young age so my role models already had the look.

            I think its the truth for a lot of women, the ideas of beauty for men and women is very different.

            Most men want to look like as ripped as WWE wrestlers, most women find that paradoxically threatening.

            So I think that when women say that like a small amount of greys, they mean it, even if men think its a sign of weakness/age.

        I'm turning 24 soon and my hairline is much worse than it was 2 years ago. Back of my head is thinning too and it's very noticeable if I don't sweep it back.
        I would fucking slaughter to have my hair back even if it was all greyed out, I know I'm gonna go bald eventually but watching it happen is miserable.
        It ain't fair man.

            Unless he's injecting testosterone into his body, the former. Male pattern baldness is the result of a testosterone-derived male sex hormone reacting with receptors in the hair follicles. The level of sensitivity is hereditary, and the factors that help to determine your level of free testosterone are hereditary too. W'allah, male pattern baldness is hereditary.

      Same age, same games, same sentiments.
      Cultic is really something, jumped straight up to the top of my favorite retro shooters.
      Scorn... I'm really trying to enjoy it, but the game goes out of it's way to prevent that. I do love the art direction, and I expected jank and unsatisfying gameplay, but the first real combat segment felt so absurdly out of place and annoying I just gave up for the day, and while I was expecting this to a degree, the game's lack of core reality is still a major issue.

      They had 6 years to make a game everyone was expecting to be little more than a walking sim. I was really hoping they would figure out the narrative better than this.

It's not about what language people use. It's purely about how much of a cunt you are being to other people who just want to have a laugh with their friends. You sound like a massive narcissist who's trying to make himself feel better by dunking on anons on a honey pot for autists. You are pathetic and gay. Real maturity is to stop trying to be mature and "adult" because you know you are an adult and have nothing to prove.

                because I am calling you a moron for fun anon? Have you ever thought that people use that foul language for reasons other than to express their disdain for losing?

                Half of the words you list can be said and taken in jest.

                I would yes. Because calling you a gay for nabbing Park Place and and Boardwalk Ave. from me would be very funny to me. Its the fact that such extreme language is used in the context of a no risk game which is precisely why its fucking hilarious anon. The fact that you need this explained to you means you need to lighten up more. Quoting you:
                >it's a game you dipshit.
                have fun and don't get mad when someone says one of the words you don't like. Not everyone is on the same page with what is OK and not OK. Your line is a lot easier to cross than the rest of the people playing and you assume that everyone lives with the same standards feelings and reactions as (you)

      Don't believe the "reaction time goes down suddenly with age" meme, these people aren't training hard. They get a girlfriend, a steady job, other hobbies, and they don't put in the hours.
      30+ year old users with extreme autism are overrepresented in the top 10% of aim trainer users and the pro fighting game tournament space. Where you are actually doomed to be outdone by zoomers is if you are competing at the actual pinnacle of your competitive field, one which is strongly oriented toward technical skills (inputs) over game knowledge and other mental aspects. In those fringe cases, the minor advantages of being younger are significant.

        I was a mechanic for two years and ended up in a psych ward for a month because of it. It's pretty demoralizing and every attempt to improve my life has failed. I'm too tired to keep trying but nott far enough gone to end it. Some people are just fuckups. Even if it improves the generational gap between people I'd be getting close to is too much, dating people your own age is a meme. My best friend has his own place and a newish car, I'm going to his wedding next year. People compare themselves to their peers, not their elders.

    This the bitching about life thread? I have some shit to get off my chest. I just got out of the Army, I don't miss it and I won't consider going back, least of all reasons being that I can't because I'm on disability now.
    But I've been kind of bored and depressed living back home without anything going on.
    I'm thinking of applying to go back to university in the spring, but I feel like I'm in an anxiety rut. I'm 26 and I feel like I'm back to square one with no idea where I want to go from here. At least money isn't a problem because my disability checks handle me.
    I keep waiting for a day where I'll wake up calm, happy, and motivated, but I feel like it's getting worse every day. I haven't left the house for longer than 30 minutes in like a month.
    The deadline for applications is fast approaching and I haven't done shit. I guess I feel scared of committing to a course of action after every other choice I've ever made has turned out so fucking bad.

        Not that far.
        Mainly that shit is just a PR nightmare, it's not quite that bad in reality. If you're in the infantry it's a hot topic to bitch about, but it's kind of ironic. You look at any infantry platoon: absolutely zero women or transexuals or whatever.
        They're also all skinnyfat, monster-energy swilling chuds. But then they're also the people who bitch nonstop about being overran with women and transexuals. I just sort of write them off as subhumans. I was intel. There were plenty of women, no transexuals. All in all it was fairly regular job other than morning PT and motorpool mondays.
        I'm not going to give you any details (For obvious reasons.) but a lot of the really negative shit you hear is literally just Chinese PsyOp shit. Go into some 4chan or Ganker thread about women in the military and you will read a deluge about how we've all become total cucks, and again, my response is that I know for a fact that those threads are fucking crawling with the Chinese. I'll be caught dead before I let those fucks infect me with their PsyOp cancer.

        That sucks to hear anon, I recommend doing a simple and versatile degree like business. That way it won't stress you out too much and you can branch into other things with the creds you get if you want to try something else.
        What kind of disability do you have?

        I have a broad spectrum of small issues that stack up. It's not exciting, not combat related. Got in a car accident, some retard blew a red light and hit me while I was on my way to a Mod Pizza. Could've happened to anyone, it had precisely jack shit to do with the Army.

        To sort anxiety out you really have to push yourself, put yourself in uncomfortable situations. If you do that it will get better, if you do nothing it will get worse. I say this from experience, do it mate, push yourself.

        I know you're right, but Jesus. I feel like I've been doing that over and over my whole life and I keep coming out the other side with nothing to show for it. I already went to college where I was basically a walking corpse burnout the whole time, still managed to get a degree in Psychology. Proceeded to fail at getting a job, so I joined the Army. And my experience in the Army sucked ass as well. Now I'm out and I just feel paralyzed because I'm afraid I'm going to sign the dotted line on another multi-year commitment and end up hating it, or failing, or just coming out the other side with nothing to show for it again.

      You're basically the equivalent of a dude that has watched so many action movies you can pretty much guess how the story will play out. You can guess the patterns, the mechanics, and it bores you - single player RPGs are pretty passive playing games, you want to feel lost with new mechanics - try games like dead space, max payne, kane&lynch, DEFINITELY try single player adventure games, something without leveling and quests, just blow shit up, i did this and it's great.

      I don't know your story about you but I feel a genuine connection requires a lot of effort. Ever since I moved out from home I've thought forging a friendship is a pretty apt way to describe the process of finding yourself someone you can trust.

    Replayed the Night Dive Turok 1 / 2 remasters this week. I know a lot of people really prefer 2, but after all these years I'm ok with saying I like 1 a lot more. The weapons in 2 are satisfying, but the enemies that you fight are annoying as shit (only two types of enemies - one that runs into your face as fast as possible constantly and the other that starts shooting / throwing grenades at you the nanosecond they see you and don't stop). You never get a chance to let the cool weapons shine. On top of that, the level design is all over the place. There are some genuinely good sections but overall there is too much fighting in narrow hallways.

    I appreciate the ambition of 2, but 1 is just so much more fun to play. I would even argue that the weapons in 1 are better. Less novel, sure - but more satisfying.

              It's not what I say - again, knowledge is knowing the limitations of yourself and listening to what others say too.
              And there is an entire fucking field interested in this subject, it's called epistemology.
              And also there are several other fields that further study knowledge and it's relationship to human well-being - namely experimental and cognitive psychology, and arguably even anthropology and religionistics.

              Of course, you would know all this if you were as knowledgeable as you claim to be.

    When the fuck will I reach that age where I stop caring about online multiplayer and start falling back in love with single player games? I have so much shit in my backlog and I genuinely miss playing single player shit. I remember during whatever gen PS3/360 was I played soooooooooooooo many fucking single player games. And now it's just like I can't sit down and focus for more than 30 mins before I have to fuck off and browse the internet or play an multiplayer game. I literally started Death Stranding like 4 times, RE7 3 times, Cyberpunk 9 times.

        It sucks. I have so much shit on my backlog and it mostly just sits there. I said I wanted to start streaming or maybe recording playthroughs because then it'd FORCE me to play through said games.

        For me it feels like I've seen everything singleplayer games have to offer, game stories and mechanics haven't really evolved that much and there are barely any new IPs coming out

        If you have any competitive drive at all though, multiplayer will always be good for that

        I don't know I still have a competitive drive as in liking to compete and I like to win but as far as actual competitive drive, I know there's no way I'd become a professional/esports at my age, not that I had any aspirations to do such a thing, but I'm not delusional. It's just rare that I have that drive to want to play single player games and usually when I do get that urge, I'm usually in a party chat with other people which will pretty much ruin any immersion as the retards in the party chat are talking or raging and I can't hear any of the storyline or dialogue, which just loops back to me playing multiplayer instead.

      I can empathize. I struggle with sticking to single player games too. I used to play single player almost elusively now I only play with friends online. Last one I finished was pic related.

    Pretty miserable, gaming just doesn't bring me joy anymore, I just play because I'm addicted.
    The lads and I have managed to organise a weekend LAN party coming up, that'll be fun at least (even if mostly just from catching up with old friends).

    Getting out in the woods again recently, spent new rig fund on gucci equipment instead. Now I harvest immense joy from being in nature, and begin the long climb back up to physical fitness so I can pull my wife's fit friend and procure myself a much deserved second wife (assuming my plan to convince the first that she wants it goes well, she loves tits I'm sure it'll be fine).

        The second resource would be going to manufacturer's website, they will often have step by step guides on how to do something, because they want you to buy (and use) their product, so e.g. if you want to waterproof a bathroom, the guide will tell you about using their different products and how to pick the right one.

      Because playing a videogame is not necesarily about the game but the context.

      It's pure personal speculation, but when you wanted to play that game back then you wanted to play it at that moment, at that age, within that cultural context and at the place that you knew.

      For example: Playing a Star Wars game feels much different than playing it during the prequel era between 2004-2008 when those game exploded in popularity, or another example, playing battlefield 3 when all your friends got it and had minor or less the same skill level.

      So, if I were to replay MGS right now instead of when I did when I was much younger feels much different because I have played other MGS games, in fact, I have played many other games with very different systems and everything feels much more derivative. But not only that, but now I have to work and my time is much limited so I can´t myself as easily with a game that actually asks you to inmerse in its world and the novelty is out so there is barely any point in discussing it outside nostalgia and not even all old games are worthy of nostalgia.

      In a sense, when we try to recapture those moments passed opportunities of the past we fail badly, because the present is no longer the past and the opportunity was then, not now.

    Thought about getting into Digimon games given pretty much each game is extremely different from each other. Before getting into Digimon World 2 which seem a bit grindy I decided to go for Cyber Sleuth first instead for a more casual experience. You can tell they direct translate most of the game if not Google Translate it, it is awful but I was never interested in the story anyway. Sadly the game isn't much better. Normal you can literally let auto battle play the game for you but if you try to start off on hard the tutorial digimons will basically nuke your starter off of the gate and you have limited healing items/money and you don't get access to team building features until like 10 mins later. It not like Pokemon either where you can save scum throwing a Pokeball and hope you get lucky, you have to scan a Digimon at least 5 times (10 if you want a nice amount of bonus potential for "free") so you basically have to save scum the "throwing the pokeball" bit 5 times before you can even really get started. Pretty sure they didn't play tested hard mode whatsoever and just slap it on as an afterthought with a raw x3 multiplier to all incoming damage while halving your own attack power. Really sucks as the options are so easy it isn't fun or so hard that it isn't fun. I want to be challenged without it becoming a save scum-level of puzzle. The game is heavily flawed in multiple ways (no skipping cutscenes or even fast forward text without mods being a big one) to the point it feel like a low budget bargain bin game despite featuring a high grossing IP. Despite having simple animations and features it still oddly feel like it is poorly put together as it is extremely easy to break the game just by doing simple stuff such as pressing A and B at the same time. Mostly playing it just to see what Digimons exist nowadays but I'll be hard press to say I'm having fun. So bad the grinding and side quests are more entertaining to me than the main meat of the game.

      Move closer to your job when able. My commute is 20-25 minutes round trip and I either play vidya or watch anime/wrestling nearly every night (half the time with friends on a call).

        I did that for like a month then said fuck it and stayed in a rental home with 4 other dudes for about a year.
        Shit sucked but was better than losing basically a whole day of my life every week to driving.

        It’s a help desk position.Can’t be done purely remote since old devices from different offices go to where I work and they need to be setup. Their main corporate office is just 20mins from where I live and my boss said it might be possible to work from there instead but they still have to discuss with the team. Only been with them for 3 weeks

        I'm unsure of this. The current political situation looks pretty grim but nothing lasts forever, the pendulum will everntually swing the other way even if it takes a generation to do. The moment we get a few small colonies off Earth we'v reached a win-state as a species, and I doubt there are other civilizations for millions of light years that could do anything about it, because advanced life is likely a once in a galactic supercluster kind of thing.

      Personally I see it as dementia prevention if I need a reason to justify it for myself. Honestly though most of life is pointless once you are dead, is it wrong to enjoy what little time you have just for the sake of it?

    34yo boomer here, I just replay the same games I've loved since I was a teenager. These days it's starcraft, tf2 and some quake live. I have accepted that I'm not a "gamer" just an enjoyer of certain games.
    I keep an eye on new games (which is why I'm on Ganker rn) but they always bore me quickly. the only new game I played more than a few hours in the last few years is Elden Ring.

      I used to play shooters at a high level when I was a teenager so I can definitely notice my reaction time being a little worse now at the age of 30, but I can kinda make up for it with experience, what actually makes me worse than my teenage counterpart is that my drive to improve is gone.

    >How you fellas holding up?
    How am I holding up? I'm 25 and I have done nothing with my life, everyday is pure agony and I feel like shit. I don't know what's wrong with me anymore. I tried going to uni since I was 18, I tried so many times to study. I changed degrees, I don't even know what do next, everything I start I end up quitting in a matter of days or weeks. I can't make progress in ANYTHING not even some small programming bullshit course that I end up dropping it, not even a drawing course, nothing.

    Everyday feels like an absolute loop, an absolute endless loop that is a living hell where even if I tell myself I'll change I go back to the same shit. I haven't done anything, I haven't travelled, I haven't enjoyed life, I haven't done anything but being stuck for fucking years out of highschool. I didn't even move out of my mom's house and we hate each other. Life is hell on earth and I'm already getting fucking old. I spent the prime years of my life suffering while other people are just fucking riding aquatic motorbikes or some shit lmao

      I didn't get my shit together until my mid-to-late 20's. I found that I preferred taking online classes, got my B.S., got a good job, got a girlfriend... etc. That was almost ten years ago. What I have learned is that life is weird, and unexpected things can happen. Your whole life can get flipped upside down, for better or worse, at any time.
