          The tweet said he died "surrounded by his family", so either rona or some other illness.

              Who knows, but the rona not only kills old people, it kills people with bad health in general (old people, fat people, people with genetic problems, people who fucked their bodies over smoking, etc.), and considering he was a Ganker geek, he was probably in very bad shape.

          They just random images and rehash decade-old fantasies about fictional characters. Generals for old single-player games are populated by people who become autistically fixated and do not possess the ability to move on from something they liked.

            Not at all, you probably just have your shit together mentally more than I do.
            I don’t actively rage at any of it, but I do hate it. Hate new hip hop getting popular, hate new shows, hate new games and all the microtransactions and DLC they come with. I avoid it as much as I can.

                Honestly? You’re probably right. I’ve always been super into rock and punk music so I’m probably just projecting my already-existing distaste for it onto the "newer" stuff.
                >last year where I was like "There’s too many good games" was 2017
                Damn, anon, it’s the same for me. Last time I actually bought a new game was in 2017/18, and they were all parts of series that I already liked.
                Games feel like they’ve genuinely gone to shit. It blows me away how it’s just expected that you’re not buying a full product these days. Shit’s broken? Eeeeugh, we’ll patch it.
                Unlockables? Fuck it, cut 85% of them off and sell it as DLC. And don’t forget your mega ultra HD preorder pack that may or may not include the actual fucking game.

      A recent KS thread had me trying the game. I wanted to experience what those anons felt, but it seemed to have a reverse effect. Took the Emi route and by the time we got into the relationship I couldn’t relate at all. I can’t see myself having this kind of interaction with a girl. I felt nothing.

        Too real. I feel this way now. I loved it when I played it way back, and still do when I think about it, but I can’t insert as Hisao at all. Not enough autism, loathing and anxiety. I can’t enjoy it anymore so I just dwell in the memories.

                Yes, self-inserting. Your exact complain was literally that you couldn’t see yourself having that kind of relationship. You see, normal people have this thing called empathy. Or sympathy. Whichever it was. That’s only a problem if you’re autistic and have to rely on self-inserting. Do you really think normal people have to convince themselves

                    And your reason for not "feeling something, anything" was… that you couldn’t self-insert. You are autistic.

                      No, you. You couldn’t accept that not feeling anything for the game is not equal to being unable to self-insert. Not only are you autistic but are unable to to divorce your feeble brain from memes like "self-insertion".

        I was still in high school. My old self probably wouldn’t even recognize me anymore. I was in shape and actually had a social life. After I graduated I went full neet mode for half a year and have slowly cut off ties with everyone i know except for a small group of friends which i haven’t talked to in months. The sudden shock of not having to be around people after graduating sort of brought out the worst in me. I did manage to somehow get my first gf after high school but that only lasted about 6 months and ended terribly. Things are slowlyn getting better though so right now i just have to keep moving forward

          I remember that era as well, Ganker was throwing a massive fit about how Reddit was stealing memes, and I feel like that anger popularized the idea of ironic shitposting on here, with how people acted like "LE MONKEY FACE LE SHITPOST DERPINA XDDDD" on here around 2011 and 2012.

          The dogwhistles still exist, but it’s an ever-evolving game of seeing who’s following algorithm fed content and who isn’t
          Which admittedly requires being tuned in enough to know what’s being forcefed to people in the first place to know who’s a driveling retard
          But the distinction is mostly meaningless when half of every board and website is just screencaps from twitter anyways, it’s just choosing to die on some hill of a wrong opinion you’re witnessing or seeing someone particularly weak showing how much of an outsider they are just by how they post (unironically saying shit like "let’s unpack this" "yikes" and other foreign phrases and communication styles)

          But I contend if people stopped posting twitter screencaps and stayed on their own damn website, things would instantly return to 80% of what we had ten years ago

      Looking back on it, I don’t think it was that good. But god damn it did it have an impact on me, and I’ll never not be grateful to the devs/artists.
      My ultimate autismo wish is a film adaptation: it doesn’t have to be 1:1 with the story and characters, but I’d love to see a comedy/drama about a young man who has to learn to live with a life-threatening illness in a school for special needs youth. The VN was at its best when it tried saying something about living with a handicap: learning to cope, helping yourself and others, trying not to have a savior complex, etc. I wish somebody would make that film. I wish I was talented enough to make it myself.

                  The weirdest thing about that is how 15 years ago Ganker used to relentlessly shit on the same games that the Ganker zoomers of today post their nostalgia threads about. I don’t really care either way, just funny to see it happen.

          No fight, no hugs, she ends up admitting she feels for Hisao but he doesn’t understand her. And she leaves forever to attend an art school. It feels like such a powerless end, exactly what I was most familiar with romantically at the time.

        That route and the good end I never had the heart for any bad end was the only time in gaming that I can recall being driven to tears
        She didn’t even end up being my favorite, but something about her routes felt weird in a way I only ever saw one other place
        Have you guys ever read The Stranger by Albert Camus? While it has wildly different themes, the tone felt very similar to her routes like being weird, clouded malaise

            no I literally can’t, the whole point of her good route is letting go of trying to solve exactly whats wrong with her because it is impossible to solve. she is the eccentric. at one point expectations forced on her nearly destroy her, and you have to decide if you are capable of standing by her.

              I think also a powerlessness from feeling you don’t connect with other humans as you don’t function like them. Therefore you can’t really enjoy what others enjoy and have to do your own thing, others just make it too complex.

        This is what I really like about KS more than other VNs. Its a very down-to-earth story in a real world setting despite the premise. Every single other VN I’ve read or even just glanced at goes all-in on crazy fantasy shit but I’d really like another simple story in the mundane, real world like KS.
