          I mean that you don't need to be ALL about games. to wear game t shirts all the time, for games to be the only topic you can talk about.
          "Gamers™" are hella cringe because that's all they care about, if you know one of them you know them all, they never question themselves and believe games to be the above anyone else's interests.
          You can play a lot, even be passionate about video games, and still have a personality and other stuff you care about.

          I don't play much but I do have obsessive behaviours and am really passionate about some really niche stuff. But that's not all I am, I still pay attention to the world around me.
          If you do that, you can be the autistiest of gamers, people won't find you to be cringe.

          tl;dr:
          Be someone who plays games, don't be gamer.

      Nobody ever thinks "I should have played more video games!". Video games are a way to waste time, your art and story writing are far better creative outlets. The only really creative part of a game is cheating. Cheats in games make it fun, allowing you to fly around the map, get armor/weapons/perks that you otherwise wouldn't have. It's fun to figure out how to get infinite health for example, and it's a great gateway into programming.

        Wrong. I should have played WoW back in 2004, but instead I played Runescape, and I feel like I have missed out. Nostalrius and Classic WoW were not the same thing, as they took place in the age of datamining. I can say the same about several video games I missed out on in their prime.
        Yes, game cheating can be pretty based if you write your own cheats, but to say it's the only creative outlet in video games is flat out wrong and it tells me you were never really good at a video game.

        >the only really creative part of a game is cheating. Cheats in games make it fun,
        no, games can inspire people to draw fanart or to make their own art, to create mods, to make music and entirely new games (look at 2hu), to make one entire culture interacting with the game competitively (speed running), to make entirely different, multimillion dollar genres (dota + league), etc.. Games like Minecraft get kids into engineering or actually provide a real creative outlet. Games like Planescape Torment get people to write Disco Elysium. Games ARE lucrative and can easily complement your creative outlets, but they're inherently worth defending as a fine use of your time when done in moderation.
        also while I agree with creative outlets being good, you're ascribing the value of something to its potential to produce goods or something for people to consume. video games are really interesting as recreation because they're interactive pieces of code that also happen to be interactive pieces of art. there's literally nothing wrong with consuming them as long as you do so healthily.

      as long as people live healthy lives outside of gaming, looking down on people for how they choose to spend their spend time is dumb. there's no difference between gaming or watching a movie or tv. you are only tricking yourself if you think one time sink is different to another
      btw playing games isn't a creative outlet and what you're describing is a side project and a completely different use of your time. gaming isn't at all equivalent to actively engaging yourself to make something

      Can't relate. I play regularly. I'm 32. Autumn and Winter is gaming time for me and my squad of childhood friends. We will play Total War Warhammer 3 immortal Empires, Warhammer Darktide, Satisfactory. After long gaming sessions at 2 or 3 in the morning, we will chill for some time in voice chat and watch World Star Fight Compilations. Shit is mega cash. You are doing it wrong.

      Lol you actually saved a lot of time. Lol and assfagots in general is picrel (also dota2 is dead). GTA is garbage sandbox for the edgy and so is souyberpunk. CSGO is filled with turdworlders who hack and CS LAN back in the days is much better, GI is gacha shit making you spend more in the game, the story is also not worth - just watch the next anime isekai instead.

      Just do your shit. Write story, do Character designs or whatever, be productive and publish your book. Don't let the gpu meme get you. Only buy gpu when you're actually working with 3d sprites and spend your time on /3/. Gaming is dead. At this point just emulate the other shit. You're not really missing out.

Sure I can small talk about news and complain about taxes and stock markets, but I the way software developers' eyes light up as someone starts talking about gaming is something different.

        No! Worse they waste all their money drinking, smoking, gambling and partying. Also traveling these retards believe they visiting Paris for a week for sightseeing will somehow enrich their life. Some even suck mr goldstein's cock in hope of him giving them a better position in the company(he won't).

        The better hobbies you can pick up is drawing, playing an instrument, cooking, gardening, fishing, camping, hiking or going to the gym, basically anything that keeps you in shape or endorse your creativity. you grow more as a person the joining a DnD club(or any hobby club) than sightseeing in Paris.

    There's a couple great PC titles (Portal, old CRPGs like Fallout, etc.) but other than that agreed. In general I felt games were more finely crafted when the exact hardware it would play on was known (either consoles or older PCs), and when ""graphics"" weren't such a meme. So much bloat in games nowadays are associated with needlessly HD graphics and overly demanding hardware/driver support. Gaming really peaked with the Dreamcast

          That's a you problem. If there is a genre that is stale, then we have hundreds or thousands of other quality games ranging from flash games, indie games, to AAA games.

          Hell I consider this age to be a golden one for gaming. Hardware limitations are barely a thing anymore. Powerful engines such as unreal can allow one to create ray traced eye candy or open GameMaker engine and create a 2D sprite platformer. There's no retardation in the past like the bit wars or "3D killed 2D games." People can make whatever they want.

Then you've got this little thing: "We can't offend anyone" that's got everyone scared stiff now. Actually doing a decent modern game on a new concept is a pipe dream today. Take NOLF (No one Lives Forever). It was a good computer game. Would such a game get made today? Fuck no.
