          To the anon who stated "everything sucks"
          Everything actually did begin to suck after 2013.

          It’s why I won’t buy tripple A games and stick to indies who know what we want.

          The universe is 99.9999999999999999999999% hostile to all life. The only place in the universe we’re aware of that can accommodate life is here on earth. And even then most biomes will kill you without any knowledge and tools from thousands of years of human civilization trying to survive nature that’s constantly trying to kill them. In fact the moment you are born you’re on a countdown to death. Every second that passes is a second closer to death. This universe is built for the suffering of all living beings.

            Then have a nice day. Put your money where your mouth is and stop the suffering that you have no reason to endure.
            You won’t, because you don’t believe the shit you’re pushing on to others, you’re just spouting things that make you feel enlightened without going through the effort of thinking about the shit coming out of your mouth.

          you know, in a way, escapism has existed for a long time, even stuff like the Greek mythology could be used as escapism by telling epic tales about extraordinary creatures and characters
          perhaps life has always been so shit regardless of the time period, that people wanted to occupy their mind with something else, we just have better ways to let our imagination run free thanks to video games nowadays

          Every form of entertainment is escapism. Even religion is a sort of escapism from the fact that one day you will simply cease to exist so some people made up imaginary good man land where you can live forever if you’ve been a good boy.
          As nature intended you will grow up, be productive for society, make some children and die because you have lived out your use.

          When presented a choice, one is more likely to pick "good" over "bad", even when "bad" is better in long term. When you see that the world around you is a fuck, people are unreasonable and stupid and most ways you can walk here lead to bad ends, your mind will naturally pick the better and more safe route. People might scorn you for this, but what of these people? They are the danger you are avoiding in this case, the bringer of ruin to your nice and cozy life.
          Mind is much more complex and vulnerable than many people want to believe, and when you see others try to exploit your weaknesses and bring you harm, it is only a natural reaction to avoid them.

          I was black until I started walking. I had no future, no jobs, I fucked a girl and got her pregnant and ran away. Then I started walking once a day and I turned white. I now earn 220k a year and my girl took me back and I married her and now I’m raising my white son.

          Walk just a little every day. Also it makes your dick bigger.

      humans have been making games for thousands of years. every time a new technology rolls around one of the first things we do is try to make games with it. with the printing press it was card and board games, with tv it was game shows, and with computers it was video games.

      To make money, but once you start ignoring AAA development, an expression of creativity, a vessel to tell a story, to entertain an audience, to experiment, to bring joy to someone. Video games are the most versatile media available, they can deliver any message, any entertainment, be as niche or lowest common denominator as possible. Why do video games exist? Fucked if I know, I’m drunk.

      Was just thinking about this. Used to be for a hobby thing but theyve been pushing it so hard lately, i think they want society to sit inside and not work, just play video games all day. It’s easier to get people to rely on the government that way. Thats what the left wants…nonstop government assistance. Good news is that all the best games were made years ago no need to buy any of the new shit.
