      I mean, as a west coastie myself, a cozy cryptid hunt/investigation game set in rural northern midwest sounds pretty cool. Or even just something like Firewatch of playing a national park ranger.

      More works of literature that have defined the medium of writing as a whole were written by lonely dudes (and a few equally lonely women) living out in cottages in the middle of bumbfuck Corntown than urbanites. The only thing "artistically" that has come from cities was postmodern shit.

You know, despite earthen construction being associated with poverty and primitiveness.

        I think an issue is people that move to cities are the ones who couldn't find fun shit to do. I have family that lives in bumfuck nowhere, they have a nice house and lots of land. Whenever we visit them, we would go on the ATVs, go hunting a bit, practice instruments, drink and get together and dance. A famous passtime during winter is to tie a rope to a snowmobile and attach it to a tobagan and race around with a person on the back, if your person stays on longer, you win. It's redneck fun, and honestly no idea why the people in the city look down on it when their idea of "stuff to do", is all non physical unless it's going to club or concert and doing drugs. Like you can do art and pottery and cooking classes in bumfuck nowhere, buy the tools and invite some friends over with some beer. have a good fucking time. You don't need to pay 150$ per a class to sit around and roll clay according to how a teacher tells you to, youtube exists.

          not all city dwellers look down on that kind of thing, though some definitely do. for many, it's just that they can drive an hour and do all that, then go back home and also enjoy what the city has to offer. though I guess that works both ways

            I live in one of the most crowded cities in North America, and people definitely look down at that shit. When I tell people I go hunting they are stunned and think I am psychotic mass murderer. The city offers little outside of classes, museums and clubs. It honestly feels like people have no attention span when I talk with them in the city, they must always be having new experiences or else they get depressed.

My buddies I lvoe em to death, but if they aren't going to a new resturant or club every other night they get extremely depressed quick. My take is more about how quickly these people fall into depression. And it's sorta obvious too looking at antidepressant rates in cities.

            Most people don't deserve an education anyway. Why does a truck driver need to read? Why does a factory worker need to read? Why does a clerk need to read? Why does a construction worker need to read? Most people should not have access to books, the internet, or any film that provokes thought. The rich degenerates of today were poor elevated by their ability to read during social upheaval.

          I find it funny that the people who bitch about ‘nosy neighbours’ are the same people who bitch about how there’s “no community spirit anymore”.
          It’s like they think community is something they (and only they) can opt in and out of whenever they feel like, whilst everyone else has to be on-call 24/7 to receive them.

    good question. as someone who has driven through it a few times, part of it could be that it doesn't offer a ton of visual variety aside from some noteworthy places. plus, depicting more settled areas gives certain types of a games an excuse to have NPCs everywhere, towns and shit, etc. I think RDR captures some of the feeling well, Far Cry 5 got the vibe somewhat right but felt sort of off, a bit flat and boring but I think that's mainly just because it's modern Far Cry and radiates ennui

      I smoke my own jerky and I've been doing it for over 20 years now. I freeze it and cut it into half-inch cubes so it lasts for like half a year. When my friends come over they call it dog food but they still want a bowl every time.

      I don't do pork. Just never liked the taste, and bacon is more about the extra flavor than the meat itself (turkey bacon fucking rocks).
      Elk on the other hand, we packed and froze one kill and ate on that for the rest of the year back in 2018. Steaks, mince, jerky, that was a good year.

      I wish I could send my citybros a chunk of fresh elk, they'll never eat McD's again.

    A huge problem with the internet is the moving of meeting places of philisophical and political people to a virtual space? Usually cities would become known for the arts and philosophy cafes, and these people would gather in places to create great ideas and movements, but now it's all online and non centralized causing lack of genuine discussion. I can find any group online that agrees with my viewpoint, and if someone does not agree with me I can just block them.
    Before you had to go to a club or cafe, find a group, discuss with them and most people would have nuance and if you did not agree you would have to actively find out people to join your discussions and thoughts. And if things became more revolutionary or movement based, you had the people with you to bolster actual change.
    Now it's all online circle-jerking.

    I really want a sort of inverse persona or harvest moon/town clone set in the rural poverty bits of america. I find the white trash type interactions so interesting and cool to watch for both drama and stories. Like they all fuck each other, argue with each other, scam each other with dodgy trailers or houses but it's weirdly comfy. I remember reading a wapo article trying to villainize the "disability belt" but the kid had a type of down syndrome before getting pregnant at 15 with twins. She's a shit singer but kept her brain active learning bible verses and singing. These communities have such a great weird language and togetherness even with drama that you rarely ever see in the western-built up world, near all of it in my country died in the late 80s during the mass displacement of central culture hubs. Something like the book Knockemstiff would be a great persona-like drama.

              when you compare an extremely rural/low population area to a densely packed city it becomes very easy to manipulate statistics for whatever narrative you want to push (in this case it's that those heckin noggerinos are just good boys who dindunuffin and want to live their best life)
              it would be just as dishonest to point out that montana has like 70 murders a year. that's a fucking average tuesday in chicago.

    If the right people were to make a game that dealt with crptozoology or just North American mythology or history in general from the last thousand or so years, there could be a cool action RPG or something set here in practically any time period.

        Rural towns use to be awesome, but yeah were fucked over by highways and walmart to become shitholes ran by normally egotistical deacons of the biggest churches and are basically just mob cities for them.

        When you live rural you live outside of the city limits and just never go to it for anything and drive a big longer to a suburb city to do your shopping.

              America's cost of living is surging rapidly.
              For instance, minimum wage in rural states is like 7 dollars an hour.
              A okay apartment could range from 850 a month or more (in those areas).
              So off the bat 120 our of your 160 an hour work month is for your shithole.
              Food is increasingly rapidly in price too.
              My point is, you're likely better in Aus being a useless neet than coming over here and being unable to neet at all, and instead die on the side of the road begging cars to give you a burger.

    Because the fags making games want their games to have a political statement no matter what, and it is quite literally impossible for them not to hamfist shit about Manifest Destiny or racism or muh KKK or ORANGE CHEETO MAN type shitflinging while blatantly and brazenly stereotyping quite literally everyone who isn't black or hispanic into being even more offensive caricatures than the antagonists of Deliverence. The mere thought of a good man or woman who's white, Christian, and comfortable with their own identity and sexuality is something that causes automatic revulsions that rake their nerves.
