    I don't get the hatred for "mid" when it's just shorthand for "middling." It's direct, it's immediately understandable from context without having ever heard it before. I immediately got what it meant the first time I heard it and didn't have to break conversation to ask for an explanation.

    Compare "ratchet."

      It's not shorthand because that implies people were using middling in the same ways before it. They weren't.

          I'm just saying in a thread seemingly dedicated to zoomer slang, bringing up shit said when we were 6 seems odd. But yeah, slang in most forms is pretty cringey.

    Depends on the character, if Gandalf said 'The ring is mid af no cap fr' it would make me physically cringe but if the character saying it is a teenager it's fine.

      I actually kinda like yap, especially now a day when everyone thinks having a platform entitles them to use it. I agree with the zooms here, b***hes do keep fricking yapping.

      yap is literal unironic baby boomer/gen x slang. my boomer dad says it all the time. i doubt zoomers unironically use it sincerely, same with "waffling".

    It makes the game immediately dated and age poorly, especially because slang is changing more rapidly than ever. It's a stupid decision and any localizer that does it is assuredly brainrotten. It's better to use timeless vocabulary or to shoot for slang or dialect that fits a similar theme (i.e. whatever fantasy game having characters talk in Shakespearean or archaic English).

    Using modern slang in unfitting scenarios reeks of being irony poisoned and being unwilling to engage sincerely and earnestly with what you are creating, which is absolutely disgusting.

        I was actually going to use Cyberpunk as an example. It's not going to age because it's using made up fake slang, which works just fine. It's earnest engaging with the setting in a good way. I haven't played the game because it had a shit launch and I'm not about to buy it after a "redemption arc" but using slang in that way is smart and it doesn't make the game feel anachronistic.

        >It's better to use timeless vocabulary or to shoot for slang or dialect that fits a similar theme
        but how will that boost sales/get me likes on twitter?

        I know you're being sarcastic, but people make tons of memes about Dark Souls' dialogue. That sense of sincerity with the dialogue writing can be really endearing and memorable.
