      This is an awful chart for an awful thread.

      Isn't it just a coomer game?

      In the sense that there's (generally bad) porn in the games, yes. In the sense that it's meant for the player to beat off and close the game immediately after, not at all.

      I really hated Hylics.

        I wouldn't call it a game, to be fair. It's more of an interactive art project with loose rules. In this context, at least Post Void achieves what it seeks out for in terms of it's early 90's MTV artistic influences, and succeeds at being a game. I'd argue Hylics fails because it, as I said, is less a game and more interactive art, so it doesn't HAVE an end goal. It's abstract so you take from it what you see and feel. This is great for art, but less for a video game where people expect some sort of solid core to it to latch onto. I guess Hylics is chewing gum. Tons of flavor, multiple ways to play around with it, but it's all chew and no crunch.

        I wouldn't call Hylics schizo games either. They're surreal but more whimsical than schizo

      I finally got around to playing Prey 2017 last week, finished it last night, it's very schizocore and I probably would hate it if it wasn't

      I didn't realize mimics actually hid and I could smack them for a good hour or two in, and it didn't cement that they were until I got the Psychoscope and the chipset to find hidden mimics

      Honestly wojak, pepe and most of the variations aren't bad memes
      The problem is that there's only that two main memes and not much else

          I mean, that's the purpose of a meme. A meme that can't evolve is a dead meme. After a while, it evolves so much it stops being a meme and becomes a part of social interaction. In-jokes and stupid references become ingrained.

    This game, Knock-Knock.
    It does not look like much, but it's made by the same people who made fever-dream simulator Pathologic and existential dread training exercise The Void.

    It's a game about mental illness that genuinely tries to mess with your head through it's gameplay. IPL are really good at this, all of their games are about experiencing some kind of pathological mental state THROUGH THE ACTUAL MECHANICS of the game, and Knock-Knock very much follows in that tradition.

    I've read a lot of people mentioning that this game made them uncomfortable, some even mention nightmares. It did give me a panic attack, so I'm inclined to believe them. Depends a lot of a person though, I've also seen dozens of people who did not even notice something is profoundly wrong with it.

    Still - when it comes to trying to capture messed up perception of reality through the actual interactive dimension of videogames, it's one of the very best and most clever attempts.

    a real schizo core game is something like The Witness that makes you look for patterns everywhere and come up with insane theories

      >a real schizo core game is something like The Witness that makes you look for patterns everywhere and come up with insane theories
      It's quite funny that you say this, because Witness is actually one giant love-letter to postmodern philosophy, which is still widely accepted as a influential school, arguably the second most important one in the western world.

      So it makes me laugh when people unconsciously acknowledge how close postmodernism is to just deranged mental state, like you just did.

          It's just interesting, the fact that we have became so enamored with a philosophy that really borders on what we define as metal pathology is strange and somewhat amusing to me. There isn't that much more to it.

          And by the way, don't take this as a complete rejection of postmodernism either. I think that in some areas, it did a lot of good too, despite obviously disagreeing with it in the end.

          Sometimes, a shift in perspective is actually useful, and yeah - many people who were either borderline, or straight up mentally ill actually helped to discover new angles and ideas for the rest of us.

          It's just fascinating how thin the line between being a rich new perspective, and being straight up raving lunatic, can be.

        understanding the underlying philosophies and logic behind what drives the insane IS probably where we will find the next big break through in how we understand the universe. it seems we've basically exhausted most of the the logical and sane avenues of understanding, now down the rabbit hole into ourselves, the real true great unknown.

          That is really, really, REALLY not true in any way.
          One - there is a reason why insane people are labeled as insane, and it is specifically due to their LACK of connection to reality.
          Two - we have absolutely not even remotely scratched the surface of logical and sane avenues of understanding, partially because we still aren't quite as strict on requiring our intellectual traditions to remane sane to begin with.

          By the way, I did not even want to imply that postmodernism is rooted in insanity in my earlier post. I merely wanted to point out the similarities.
          Postmodernism itself is rooted in overzealous optimism about the implications of semiotic turn, and understandable, but unfortunately overzealous and unmanaged glorification of an otherwise perfectly valid importance of plurality of perspectives.
          It takes good ideas and realizations - the importance of semiotics and arbitrariness of meaning, and the importance of mental flexibility and willingness to explore different points of perspective - and it just pushes them too far, without moderation.

          That is not insane, it's just naive. But if still pushed too far, it will start RESEMBLING actual insanity.

              Actually, no. Neither. I don't have a TV, I get my news from various feeds from sites I can trust (or straight up relevant academic papers), and I really detest social media.
              But I know what you are saying, and yeah, there is a lot of fucked up stuff going on around us right now. I'm not sure how that affects my point though, which is that embracing insanity would be somehow beneficial, or that we have been pushing rational and logical thought to some kind of a brink.

              The insanity that is currently dominating stuff like social and liberal studies discourse is if anything, a proof that we neither uphold sanity and rationality all that well today, and that what sometimes literally involves glorification of mental illnessess isn't exactly helping anyone.

              We already indulge various mental pathologies a little too much, and it clearly isn't helping anything and anyone.

      1) schizoid personality disorder has nothing to actually do with schizophrenia, aside from the linguistic root for that term.
      2) that is a giant load of shit.
      I really wish people would stop fucking romanticizing mental disorders.
      Trust me, being schizoid does not make you super interesting and actually really sensitive and attractive deep down.

          I had a... well friend is really not the right word, but a person I got to know quite well, with schizotypal disorder when I was hospitalized few years ago.
          We shared a room, spend almost a month together, I dare to say that I was helping him a lot in some ways.

          So being quite familiar with what that disorder looks like, you have my sympathies, but I also know that probably does not mean much.
