"Outgrowing" a specific thing doesn't mean that you don't do anything for fun at all. That is such a stupid comparison as to seem disingenuous, so most people are going to react to this as if you are trolling.

The other day I tried to watch an animated movie I liked when I was a kid. The whole thing was full of annoying kiddy songs and fart jokes; I turned it off after ten minutes. Remarkably, that does not mean I hate all other forms of entertainment, not even all other movies.

I don't feel anything if they say they've outgrown vidya.
I do get majorly pissed when someone insinuates I've wasted money on vidya, or that I'm rich because I can afford consoles.... my answer is usually on the lines of "I paid a tenth of your cellphone's price on mine and it does all the shit you use yours for", or "maybe I can afford games because I don't spend 200 bucks on booze every other weekend".

Why do you have to be so hostile about it? People have ever-changing interests and tastes. Some people just don't enjoy their old hobbies the way they used to.

Both my parents have been playing video games since the 70s. My dad still plays games and is very much into the hobby. My mom, on the other hand, only boots up some old Sonic or Mario maybe once a year if she's bored.

It's okay to outgrow a hobby. It's okay if you don't, as well. It's not a personal attack on your maturity.

>> No.4379341

Adult normies always do things like this. There needs to be a term made for this shit because it is so common among people its scary.

Basically they try to assure themselves about their life decisions. Often this will appear in a snobbish like manner. However because so many people do things like this nobody ever thinks to question this stupid type of thinking. I guess in general anytime someone says oh I do this or I live like this because you know adult things, its basically a way for people to feel better about themselves and to also not be challenged if you know what I mean.

I could probably explain a bit better but one other stupid normie self assurance meme out there is the whole "oh I'm proud to be wagecucking 70 hours a week with two jobs and 3 kids to take care of. Fuck this lazy asshole who keeps whining about jobs and whatnot or student loans. Just do it fagit I did. What's your excuse?"

So yeah OP this is more a less the reason why they say that. Normies have this obsessive desire to be normal to the point where they become hyper normal and extremely shit people because of that. Not defending myself here but this is truth. I barely play games these days but I'd never say stupid shit like that even if I technically could. Just ignore these fags seriously. Its better for your mind to ignore all shitters.

>> No.4379383

I've run into a bit of an interesting dilemma for myself. I want to say the past 3-4 years I've been buying games on Steam sales and trying to rekindle my inner video gamer. But every time I started a new game I would lose interest about a few hours in. Eventually I caught on that video games have changed. Open world stuff. DLC stuff. Trends that everyone else seems to be enjoying tremendously just bores me. So The past year I have been slowly coming to terms with maybe I've just grown out of video games.

And then something profound happened.

On a whim I bought me a USB SNES style controller. Really well built. I would say very close to the original's quality. I bought it after having had enough of the X360 Dpad and decided to look at what reproductions there were out there. The Dpad on the one I got is very very nice. So I started playing old NES games again. SNES. I began to feel that kindling I was looking for with the modern games. I started moving on to Playstation and Playstation 2 games. Expanded my gaming to old DOS games. It's been about 3 months now and I'm gaming like I'm a kid again. No exaggeration.

So now when I hear "I'm growing out of video games" what comes to my mind is "maybe you're just not playing the right video games." I don't know if modern gaming will ever recapture me again, but that is fine, because there is a backlog of 30+ years of games out there I will be absolutely happy with playing until my end.

I started a new playthrough a few days ago and even though the controls haven't aged super-well, the combat is still so much fucking fun. I remember why it was one of my favorite games growing up.

Part of me wishes we could get a sequel with modern controls, but I'm sure it would get fucked over somehow.

>> No.4379485

Try looking at more indie titles or things not published by big companies like EA and so on. The big boys focus test and ride the latest gimmick until their games boil down into the most bland excuse for a game possible. For example, if you liked old first person dungeon crawlers try Legend of Grimrock (LoG 2 is better but 1 is still pretty good). If you liked RE4 then RE7 was a good return to form, not perfect, but still a fun little game. The list goes on, but you get my point.

To be honest Anon,

I've focused on retro my entire life, I'm 24 right now and I can safely say that my funnest times growing up weren't hanging out with friends or anything extracurricular, but discovering games in my childhood like Seiken densetsu 3 and bahamuts lagoon and countless others. There's a certain mysticism in retro games at an early age when the brain is still developing and your primary focus is centered around minute matters at home and school.

Using these games to escape really anything, you become attached to their world's and they become and infect you and your personality, your greatest memories become those of achievements and what not, discovering secret areas, finding out what games you like that nobody else really does helps paint a picture for the attachment.

I wouldn't say that I've outgrown vidya, so much as vidya has outgrown me. Games have gone from adventurous, to Hollywood the last decade or so. The closest thing I could thing of that relates to the feeling of being intuned into a game and really feeling in it's world was uncharted series, and I didn't even play that much. This doesn't mean I don't enjoy modern games, fuck I love call of dutys zombies mode because it's focused on the gameplay and nothing else.

It is up to you to keep the dream alive in the second to second process known as life. If you can continue to outweigh daily troubles stresses and worries, and reach a conscious nirvana, I am confident that you can find the once golden enjoyment in games that I still can here and there.

In real life, I'm doing my best to break out of what seems to be a glass wall of bullet proof glass in front of me, to be more social because I realize I have alot to offer. I still find time to enjoy my favorites, but I do look back wishing I could reexperience it all again, even in today's mind set.

Don't let life worry you or get you down, and don't sit around posting on 4chan either. Go out and be productive, you have literally one life

I guess that's a pretty good pic actually. The vast majority of what many on here would call normies definitely fall into type 2. Type 1 are normal to but they at least aren't dicks about their normal lifestyles. They would be the kind of people to look up to. Type 3 is probably what many of us anons fall under and as you said, type 2's think guys like many of us are actually type 4's.

>Might have to use this pic sometime myself.
Don't, it's totally impenetrable. You and the other guy probably know what it's talking about because you've been discussing it this whole thread, but out of context I have no idea what those four categories are supposed to mean.

I have no idea what "when it influences other people" means. What are they talking about when they say "I don't let my personal life interfere with others" and "whatever it's not my problem"? Does the personal life column mean "this is what people think about themselves?" But in that case I have no idea what "my tastes aren't your problem" means. Most importantly, where are all the people who get mad about others liking something they don't like or vice versa? Surely those are the real manchildren.

>> No.4380417

I wouldn't say I outgrew them, they just became a lot less fun when

1) I became a game developer, it's hard for me to experience games emotionally now that I see the design for its constituent parts and for what the team went through to get it made

2) People starting streaming shit a lot and posting lets plays of everything, now if I'm ever interested in a game I don't really need to play it, I can just watch someone else and I get the gist of it

3) I've seen my kids play games and so I see the emotional cycle they go through, how games are set up to reward/punish certain behaviours, it makes me realize how much my priorities have changed in life

So I don't think I outgrew them, at least not like how I outgrew stuff like drugs, partying, drama, etc

>> No.4380439

My life is pretty exceptionally fulfilling. I can't imagine how awesome someone's life would need to be that they can no longer enjoy a little escape. I suspect that people who say they've outgrown video games actually mean they've taken on so much "adult" responsibility they don't have the time to invest that it takes to get the return they want. Hopefully they have more exhilarating and expensive hobbies. If not, sucks to be them.

I don't have a problem with people "outgrowing" things, tastes change. There's just always this sense of smugness or superiority that comes with that statement, which puts some people off.

To stay on topic, allow me to reminisce or ruminate if you will

There was a time I thought I had outgrown gaming and it was the early 90s because the state of it was shit compared to how great gaming had been the entire rest of my life with the exception of the mid 80s, when I was too young to really realize it.

Sega CD and 32x were expensive disappointments then Jaguar, CDi and 3DO were all overpriced and underfun.

How does any console you buy for that amount allow you to make calls and go online while away from home/on the move?
>"maybe I can afford games because I don't spend 200 bucks on booze every other weekend".
The correct response. A $60 game or console will last you a lot longer than eating out at a semi-decent restaurant a couple of times, so there's no "wasting money" going on there especially if you factor in reselling should you get tired of a game or are suddenly strapped for cash.

For that matter, why is it that the same people who stress over a 10 cent difference in gas prices are A-OK with buying milk from a convenience store for easily $1.50+ more? People just can't prioritize their spending well which is how I sold a digital card in a f2p mobile game for $300 to a real estate agent.

>> No.4381532

guy who made the pic here, let's see what i got.
the columns are related to how people like to act in each situation.
How you act in your personal life would be whatever you do that shouldn't be anyone's business... your taste in music, food, general mdia and entertainment. You can act in the way society expects adults to act here, consuming "adult" things and developing an "adult" taste (critically acclaimed books/movies, good cuisine, etc...), or you can like/watch/eat things that are considered childish (cartoons videogames, junk food, etc...).
The second column is how one acts in situations directly involving other people, as in, what you do here may directly influence someone's life in a positive or negative way. Here you can act like an adult, which mostly sums upt o not letting your bulshit harm anyone in an unfair way, being responsible... this can range from being a good professional or parent, to not overstepping boundaries just because you won't be punished. People who act like a child here are the ones who get other people screwed because they weren't responsible, or that act like assholes just because there's no law stopping them from doing it... think the kind of people who participate in things like a erry springer show and think themselves just and correct even though they're being entitled and obnoxious.
Type 1s risk being boring, even though many of them aren't, and just genuinely like adult stuff... they're mostly pleasant.
Type 4s are the opposite, they are more often than not unnajusted, cringy and a pain to be around.
Type 3s are usually pleasant, if a bit dull to people who don't share their tastes.
Type 2s usually have this annoying unwarranted self-importance. That comes from acting like an adult when it comes to things that won't matter to anyone, meking them feel entitled to be an asshole when it counts.
BTW, the people who get mad about others liking something they don't like are type 2 and 4, 1 and 3 would be chill about it.

But I never play games, I just don't find them enough fun to have my attention for so long, I prefer to do other things with my time. I wish I could still like them like I used to but they don't do it for me anymore.

But since starting HRT (I'm a tranny), I feel like I really don't enjoy them much anymore.

Those were two different threads. The thread they're referring to was an Amiga thread. Basically in the Amiga thread I was trying to give Amiga recommendations but I was getting shouted down by the haters coming out of the woodwork saying that Amiga is 100% trash etc etc. I observed that the Amiga is a system that does have a very high proportion of bad games with a few really good gems and it's staunchly defended by a certain narrow demographic which is basically like the N64. Well apparently the anti-Amiga trolls were heavily representative of the N64 fanboys and/or trolls plus there obviously being some Amiga fanboys in that thread so for whatever reason that sparked a very explosive reaction.

The thread you called me a grumpy old faggot in was an N64 thread where I was actually trying to be as positive toward the console as possible but unlike Amiga threads where I don't really get much shit for my one Amiga being nonfunctional and emulating entirely and despite the thread being specifically about N64 flash carts I still got shit for mentioning some N64 titles that I don't own and are the reason I'm considering picking up an Everdrive to play so there's one difference between the fan bases right there.

Oh I see, so only the first column is about pop culture. The second column is about responsibilities to other people, nothing to do with what kinds of entertainment you like. I thought both columns were supposed to be about entertainment, but I think I can see what you are getting at now.

Basically, you are saying that having "childish" tastes like enjoying video games or cartoons doesn't make you a shitty person (if you act like a responsible adult when it counts), and having "adult" tastes doesn't mean you aren't a shitty person, since some people just behave irresponsibly anyway.

With the way you explain this yeah I guess I was right then when I said the majority of normal people out there at least these days would actually be type 2.

People are absolutely fucking insufferable at least in the US. If you don't listen to their shit taste in music, have a job they deem acceptable, do "adult things" like having sex all the time or always chasing the pussy, in females case making sure you always are in a relationship, look down on anyone deemed too "childish" such as nerds that just want to play their games and don't want to necessarily have a family or whatnot, and so on and so on. Oh yeah and also having a smartphone and being an attention whore on social media or having a tinder and shit is pretty much mandatory in normie land now or else you are a weird freak. I don't really have to explain this more on /vr/ I hope.

I know the meme goes that /pol/ is always right but /r9k/ is usually right too. At least especially earlier /r9k/ before this site blew up in popularity again and attracted all the worst type of people to this site. Normies are the worst most shittiest people and they are most people out there.

Type 1's as I said before are the model type citizen I would assume. These are people that I guarantee most would look up to. Especially the type 2's. Type 4's sounds like the most degenerate type of people to me from what you explain. A violent black gang member would probably fit into the type 4 bracket for most people. You definitely want to steer clear from a person like that in your life. Also reminds me of one of those blue haired tumblr SJW landwhale types as well. Although they usually will have their own social cliques so not sure if they would be type 2 or 4. Then finally type 3 would likely be many of us irl. Type 2's love talking massive shit about 3's and 4's even if they don't always do it publicy.

So basically what I told OP here in these two posts

>People are absolutely fucking insufferable at least in the US
You must live in a really shitty place then. I live in Virginia and people are not like that. Everybody is a nerd about something, and other than religious bible thumpers who freak out about homosexuals, nobody gives a shit what you do in your personal life.
People still "attention whored" on social media up to a few years ago, but nobody I went to college with posts anything on facebook anymore.

Meh I really don't want to keep discussing this topic honestly. I'll leave you with this, it isn't just about these people giving a crap what others say, do or think. Its their thinking as a whole as well that is the problem.

So as I said in the previous post. I would bet some of these people don't even want to outgrow games. They just feel pressured to for whatever reason and will try to think up any stupid reason to reassure their selves why their decision is the right decision even if it makes them look like little fuckwits in the process. You ever hear people say things like oh I have a life or at least I have a life? Even when clearly a life can be lived any way a person wants so saying something stupid like that shouldn't really carry any real weight? Its the same concept here is my point. Its another meme that came during a time before this site where the masses out there use it to reassure to their selves that they are justified. You also have those types that defended NSA spying by saying things like, oh durr well I have nothing to hide so I don't care.

Just think about it dude. Think about the tons of shit people do and say to reassure their selves of their lives and ask yourselves why is it people do this. The only real explanation for these types of people is what I said. The vast majority of people out there are sheep that want to be led by leaders and these sheep have created tons of reassuring memes for themselves to feel better about themselves. We all want to live nice lives of course but the people I've posted about a few times now very much fall into an archetype that is so noticeable unless you are this type of person yourself. Really the only reason many of us on here may notice this is because for some of us on this site we are very detached from any sort of normalcy that normal people have deemed normal.

Dude, you're the one who lives in a remarkably nice place. I lived in a few different places, people are mostly type 2 assholes wherever I go.
Granted I think I could call myself a type 4 up to some time ago, and probably mislabeled some type 1s as type 2s, but even today I can see most people acting high and mighty about trivial things and not measuring up to their advertised emotional age when it counts. I mean, don't you even have 1 guy you know who is a shitty absent father but always brags about how awesome he is for getting "prime pussy" every night?

Hes not wrong.

WTF, no. That sounds like a Jerry Springer Show character. I have a mentally ill cousin who lives on long island, had a kid at 15, and is a shitty dad, but the mother and the kid live with my uncle now and he takes care of them financially. I haven't spoken to him in at least ten years though.

I guess things are really bad outside of the rich liberal bubbles in this country. Maybe video games are at least cheaper outside of the bubble? I haven't found anything good at a good price in a very long time here. I saw a PS2 for $20 at a thrift store last week, and somebody snatched it up before I had even made a second round through the store.
At the expense of being able to find cheap retro games though, the rest of you guys really need to hurry up and join the 21st century. It sounds like it's much better here, other than the scalpers.

Gramps is just a sad loser who didn't have any friends to play 4 players Mario kart or Bomberman 64 with.
I bet he'll now write about how he had a lot of parties with weed and Saturn. I don't buy his bullshit. Fag was probably poor and only had a PS1 with a few pirated single player CDs

>> No.4384475

Oh good lord I was dragged to one of those once. Aside from a Cammy cosplayer that had ass for weeks it was a soul crushing experience.

I hate the N64 but I would play any game on that rather than have unwashed nerds wearing socks with sandals ask me about Evangelion.

I think it is possible to lose attraction to vidya as you grow older, but you shouldn't ever stop because you've gotten 'too old'. I don't care for CS Lewis' writing but this is a good quote
>“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

I enjoyed the "Chronicles Of Narnia" as a kid, but Lewis was a religious nut, hence the christian overtones in his books.

>> No.4384549

Wasn't he an atheist until Tolkien converted him? Now there's one religious nut, he even wanted his mass in latin ffs.

Not just parties, if my girlfriend plus at least one dude crashing on my couches wasn't at my apartment at all times it was out of the ordinary. Mario Kart was just a kiddy game and we were edgy young adults. You need to realize that there was a huge gulf in the 90s.

No need to answer.

pretty much this, wanting to look adult is childish. Call me a weeaboo lolrandumb faggot, but what made me realise this was FLCL.

Rich liberal bubbles have their own sets of childish adult wannabes. My brother is part of this universe, and most of his friends are thirty-some "refined tastes" connoiseurs that are still under their dad's financial care.

FLCL's humor is great. Anyone that doesn't have a hearty laugh during the Amarao/Haruko scenes are wizards that were never in contact with a real bitch.

That's definitely true, but to me it feels a lot more pleasant than what some people describe about their local environments.

Man, FLC is awesome, woulda been a shame if Netflix funded a new season without involvement from the original director for an easy cash in.

My mistake, it's actually been funded by Toonami.

Don't be so negative. I'm not an expert at modern anime, but I've hear the directors of the new episodes are all talented. I think some of the animators of the original will work on it too, but not sure.
At the very least, we have The Pillows, who will presumably do new songs for the series.
I don't think it'll be bad, but I don't expect it to surpass the original either.

Nah most people in my group of friends were too respectful/scared of me, especially if they relied on me for things. She had to go to Chicago to cheat on me.

I'm skeptic about the series being good in comparison to the original, but I'm glad the pillows are returning to early 2000s style for the ost, the song from the trailer got me excited.

the environment itself is pleasant, not the people, plus it shuns some agressions
