Why does /g/ hate gaming? No, seriously, what the fuck is your problem? Games have been driving technology forward since forever, you fucking schmucks.

Either respect both games and technology, or disrespect both. There's no middle ground there.

People on /g/ are likely to be _slightly_ older given the barriers to taking part in a conversation about functional vs imperative programming paradigms, for example. Most people require some formal education to participate. Videogames have no barrier to entry and everyone has an opinion. Videogame discussion is often low effort content.

Older people tend to have less time to play games (and maybe resent the fact that they have more responsibilities).

Premise2: Most people acquire knowledge after receiving formal education.

Why would you make discussions about video games on /g/ when you have a specialised board for discussing video game related topics? Vidya is made using technology, sure, but when you've got a separate board that's made for you to discuss topics about your certain technology, you should use it instead of the _generalised_ technology board. Most of the time discussions about vidya don't even involve the tech used to create it, and I'm pretty sure a portion of you don't really understand the technology in the first place. /v/ is gonna do a much better job at talking about vidya than /g/, if that's your main interest.
I'm not saying

I personally have no problem with these types of threads, it's just that other idiots on here can't stand them because they think that whenever someone posts something remotely related to video games they are manchildren that just play vidya and nothing more. Not all anons who participate in Windows/GPU/Case threads are fucking manchildren.

I don't hate games, I just feel sour about it when you put young people who are using exciting computer technology with lots of potential for exploration, artistic expression and culture, but who only use it as consumers, in any kind of context where I expect ACTUAL technology discussion, hacking and creativity. /v/ in /g/ is the most familiar form of this to most of us, but to me it's also annoying when gamers come to demoparties to just sit and play all the time instead of engaging and respecting.

it is difficult to make non-proprietary games unfortunately

>> No.64448591

Only if you insist on DRM. Otherwise it's only a matter of keeping the engine sources and mechanics scripts (which you open source) separate from the assets and design content data that you can sell. Requires avoiding proprietary middleware as well, but my opinion remains that open sourcing games is very misunderstood and easier than people think, especially for indies and smaller releases.

PC games, sure. We have powerful consumer GPUs almost completely thanks to games, which can of course be used for other computation as well.

DRM and copyright bullshit is slowing technology down though.

Consoles are only slowing down tech as well, they are as locked down and anti-/g/ as you can get. They use old PC hardware and devs have to deal with that. Their only reason for existing is exclusive games.

As for CPUs, gaming is holding them back. Most everyday things are multithreaded, but games keep lagging behind.

I don't watch sports or series, only movies, and watching a movie takes 2 hours, while finishing a game takes 4-16 hours, most of which is spent on boring repetitive gameplay.
