Normies are weird. They respect half-knowledge and dabbling, but when presented with true, in-depth experience and passionate interest, they are often quickly repulsed. Even sadder when you see people on a dedicated hobby board supporting such behavior.

>> No.4726996

In a social context, especially with coworkers with whom you spend a lot of time, it can be advantageous to allow ane even partake in casual conversation to foster comradery, thus making work and your life a little more pleasant.

If that is something beyond your comprehension then I would guess you’re either very young or stunted emotionally and intellectually.

>> No.4727002

We talk about video games all the time. He told me bits of information that I never knew, like how the ps3 can play PS1 games. He's corrected me about shit all the time.

I don't usually correct people when they're wrong, as I'm not a pedantic asshole. This is one of the few times I did.

The guy's usually pretty chill. Don't know what got under his goat that time.

>> No.4727004

So basically the other guy shouldn't have gotten pissy about being corrected and instead continued the conversation once it was demonstrated that OP shared a similar interest and was perhaps knowledgeable about the subject. I guess OP might've been a dick when he corrected him, though, so who knows.

Well my childhood friend, despite having played many megadrive games back in the day, is sort of like that. He's not too much into retro shit, but he only found out recently about the SNES-CD. When I mention that I still use a CRT TV to play some games and that I still own some consoles he laughs, but I mention any old game we both played and he starts looking like a madman for an emulator.

The reason it worked afterwards was because just inserting and removing the cart helps clean the contacts from dust, light debris or whatever.

Different anon here. I used to blow in my cartridges all the time, and all my childhood games still work today.
That said, I don't blow into them anymore because wisdom & experience has taught me that I have to position the cartridge in the perfect sweet spot, which usually involves nudging the cart every so slightly to the right.

>> No.4729095

He sounds like a manchild OP. I'm surprised he's even angry at all, one should be open to constructive criticism if they are to excel in the real world. The proper response instead of flashing a death stare at you would be to say "Oh, thank you for correcting me. I will not make the same mistake again in the future." like a proper adult. I would consider reporting his strange behavior to your employer as he obviously has difficulty with accepting constructive criticism, which is a major flaw to have in the work force.

This is the way to gently correct someone, you see what you said is basically telling him he's wrong and you're right. The way I say it, you make a minor correction and add some more information and immediately move the conversation forward into a way that avoids any kind of awkward embarrassment for him. Nobody likes being told they're wrong, but you can finesse it to avoid discomfort in a friendly way.
For fuck's sake you demented pavement apes go and buy some fucking deoxit. It will instantly fix any connection problem and is plastic-safe. Being a master race SEGA Master System player I never had a piece of shit NES so I assume their cartridge contacts are bare copper or some kind of shitty zinc plated lead bullshit so you probably need the red tube, but if you ever get your gorilla hands on a real piece of hardware with gold plated connectors they make a special deoxit gold to clean and preserve them. I've even fixed broken and corroded solder joints with the stuff because it's normally nonconductive but will conduct when pressed between a metal-metal interface

I'm born 92 and I just played the NES because we still had it, we never had a SNES, so I had to emulate that in the late 90's and early 2000's (well, still do).
In a way it was really sweet because there were all these cool games I didn't have to pay for, but on another, emulation was very imperfect (especially early on), and playing Super Metroid with a keyboard is insanity (I don't know how I beat it back in the day, but I did, these days a gamepad is mandatory).
I didn't even get into AVGN until like, the 2010s.

You exhale moisture no matter what you do, that's how your lungs work, blowing into the cartridge contacts WILL cause corrosion over time.

If you're having connectivity issues, replace the connector pins in the cartridges that struggle, or if they all struggle, replace the connector pins in the console, and then be more careful with it in the future.
Or get a toploader, because that springloaded angling mechanism is flimsy and bullshitty, and will keep wearing your pins.

I've actually never used one myself, I was just told they were more reliable due to lacking that dropdown mechanism the normal NES has (lord knows that thing gave me grief).
