Why are retro handhelds so comfy? My preferred way to game.

>> No.5532582

Because you don't have to hook up a console and fuck around with getting out controllers. It's just pick up and play.

I say this having all my consoles hooked up to three TVs with everything well organized. Handhelds with a backlight are the GOAT.

How come girls are NEVER autistic enough to get into a hobby at more than a surface level? Even ugly girls with no friends are still boring, intellectually dull and have no real in-depth autistic hobbies.

The very few girls with actual interests and deep knowledge about their hobby were extremely autistic and had obvious mental issues.

How come girls are always either normie as fuck or mentally ill? There usually isn't a female version of the typical awkward but intellectually competent nerd with autistic hobbies.

I honestly fucking hate women.

I want to jam my cock through the back of her throat until I see the whites of her eyes open in fear as the realization that she might actually suffocate starts to set in. I’ll give her a moments reprieve to breathe and go for another round over and over until she’s on the verge of unconsciousness. Fucking stupid whore. She knows it. She knows she’ll never amount to anything more than a slab of meat to be used up until she’s nothing but a husk of a slut ready to die of a meth overdose from years of being a shallow dumb cunt.

I want a train run on all her holes, ears and nose included for days on end until she aches all over and can do nothing but shit out her liquid diarrhea from her gaped asshole. The diarrhea being nothing but her consistent diet of being force fed cum all day. Stupid bitch. I hate whores. I hate these fucking sluts that think they’re better than me because they were born looking a certain way. Fucking cunt I hope thirty niggers beat her till she cries and then rape her. If I were the judge will let them off scot free even with video evidence, then release the video on the internet for all to see so she can never escape the shame and humiliation she deserves. Fuck her and fuck women. If she were drowning and reached onto my boogie board for help I’d stomp on her stupid slut hand and spit in the water so there’s more liquid to take in.

Why do these cunts think they deserve anything in life when all they contribute to society is their used up Arby’s pussy? Fuck I hate them. Bunch of dumb bitches everywhere you go. They have no respect for guys that don’t have a perfect physique so why should I respect them? I’m glad they’re all going to end up old and alone, knowing they’ll never accomplish anything of worth in life. Crying on their deathbed at the thought of having lived a vapid life of being a stupid prostitute. Fucking stupid bitches. Dumb sluts, the lot of them. Fuck whores.

I've wondered this a long time myself. Must be some sort of biological disposition, however, I try not to believe that our species can be held back very far due to these things, as it would incite the idea that people belonging to different groups really are inherently different with no chances to be an individual sans those inhibitions.

>> No.5533228 [DELETED] 

It doesn't just happen with gaming. It's hard to find girls who have a burning passion about anything, while it's easy to find guys who get completely autistic with whatever the hell moves them.
My GF for example, plays some games with me. We are playing div: OS 2 in co-op a couple hours at a time, but of course, it's hard for her, she is learning slowly and can't play for more than 2-4 hours at a time. She does enjoy the game, and asks me to play it, but she doesn't experience the game like me or a bro would.
At the same time, she is having like a passion crisis. She likes a lot of stuff, but nothing really moves her in bursts of madness and passion.
She has invested a huge deal of time to try to understand what is happening to her and why all her friends, sister and basically all women she knows are the same as her, and why it seems to get worse as they grow older.
She thinks that girls have more passion when they are teens, but sex, attention and all that quickly drowns it. When they get older, the whole baby thing comes up, and women start getting more and more miserable the more they try to be like man.
She also has realized that very few females manage to transcend that and become what she is calling "true humans".

I find the whole thing fascinating. It's like they are hardwired to "enjoy" hobbies that have social value or help them attract men. It's never about simply enjoying the activity itself. There is always that social goal behind it all.

Females in general (not ALL of them, but the vast majority) are incapable of appreciating any art form at more than a surface level. They are also much more susceptible to becoming normies or getting brainwashed by the media. That's why you will never meet a girl with relatively high IQ who is autistically passionate about something.

I notice in general, women lack passion or hobbies of their own. For example, I love woodwork and it makes me happy and keeps me busy all by myself.

I observe that women cannot do anything alone and be content. Any activities they do, seem to involve other people. Or they will go from activity to activity, but they are never happy or satisfied in general.

Men can make themselves happy and it usually does not involve other people. But women can't seem to do that. Am I wrong ?

Of-couse there are exceptions. But most women I see around me behaves the way I mentioned above.

Most women who do have hobbies are doing it for some alterior motive. I've never met a woman who genuinely appreciates exercise or cooking for that matter. I feel like all the ones I see who like doing shit like yoga or mountain climbing are doing it to scoop up a dude, get out .

Ex girlfriend from high school was a softball pitcher....because of her dad who was maniacal in coaching her. Last I heard she got pregnant from one of her next door neighbors. Her dad must have been crushed.

I'm literally trying to rack my brain of all the female friends I have and if they have an actual hobby. They don't. It's rare if they're in a yoga club or running group. But I don't know any of them who actually love doing something that has zero social value to it. Maybe shopping is a very solitary thing.

>> No.5533239 [DELETED] 

They have the one passion, that condemns every hobby to a sparse existence.

This passion is to seek group approval and climb the social hierarchy. While man have sex, to just enjoy it, women have sex, to climb the social ladder. It's their expression of their sexuality.(Beside banging chad in obscurity)

According to Paul Watzlawicks "You can not not communicate."

I say "Women can not not take part in fight for social hierarchy". Imagine it as desire, that can never be satiated.

As a men I really appreciate the fact, that my sexual desires can be satiated for a few days, which gives me the clear head for pursuing hobbies, intellectual adventures or business. Women can rarely enjoy that silence from their sexual desires, because their sexuality is in large part a means of manipulation. The manipulation games, which are driven, by their sexuality never stop for them.

tl;dr Women can not be satiated in their sexual desires, which express in herd mentality and climbing the social ladder. So they just never have a clear head for hobbies.

It seems like for some reason many of the past hobbies that women usually did have fallen out of favor because of facebook/instagram whoring.

Previously, many women had hobbies like knitting, crochet, baking, sewing, needlepoint, and scrapbooking. Because many of these are viewed as things "housewives" did, all these strong independent "womyn" can do what is really fulfilling to them: Instagram whoring and spending men's money.

>It's never about simply enjoying the activity itself. There is always that social goal behind it all.
I think that really hits the nail on the head. It seems many women, like people (not just women) do, is let themselves get swept up in life and cultural expectations and that leads them to not feel strongly about anything in particular. You even see this with men telling other men to not worry what a woman believes when they meet her because she will change herself to stay with the man, as though a woman's positions are so dispassionately held held that they can throw them away that easily. Its simply easier to do most things such that you get the social boost from it, but not have to put that much more effort in. Men do this as well, but the difference always seems to be that most men have AT LEAST ONE thing they are passionate about beyond the surface level.
Perhaps the answer is that most women are simply deeply passionate about social activities, which they seem almost as a hobby within itself? Many women see "talking/interacting with friends" as something they really enjoy doing.
Its not something that is impossible, however. My own mother is an absolute beast when it comes to handiwork and craftsmanship. She knows her way around tools that many men I know have never even used. She is very passionate about doing work on her house and can and has done anything from hanging drywall to cutting and laying tile.
Like I said, I think many women just get swept up in socializing as something their expected to be good at, and don't focus too much on other things. Because that expectation isn't on men, men usually have a hobby they are passionate about.

I think it's the fact that the screen and buttons were how the game was meant and designed to be played. CRTs have a myriad of sizes and output differences but a handheld only has 1, maybe 2 major redesigns that games were designed around. Games on the DS are meant to be played on the DS and anything other than the original systems is a subpar experience, even the 3DS is a slightly worse experience due to the scaling issues it has with DS games.
I have a hard time going back to games that were on the original Game Boy because of the poor screen, yet I feel like I'm missing out on something if I play it on something like the Super Game Boy or an AGS101.

The original GB was designed to be very cheap for the consumer to buy, Nintendo would in fact start selling the system itself at a cost, to make it even cheaper still, the idea being that if the system was more easily available, then more people would get one, and they would want to buy some games for it (and this worked tremendously for them, selling over one hundred million systems, they made phenomenal profits on game cartridges).

>Color screen? Costs a lot of money, probably uses more power, skip it and make it a monochrome, these games wont be visual masterpieces anyway.
>Backlighting? Costs money too, and definitely eats battery life, just allow the players to adjust the contrast with a dial.
You 'get what you pay for', however, and Nintendo didn't offer a lit screen version outside of Asia, which does suck. Perhaps they didn't wanna crowd the market with too many models, with the GBC showing up eventually, but that thing wasn't lit either, so hope you can find a good angle to see the screen in your current lighting condition.

Some third-party solutions exist, some better than others, and given the lower cost of the system itself, maybe the added cost of lighting it up somehow wasn't that bad of a deal to some.

You know a Gameboy (Color) game I seldom see people talk about in general? Duke Nukem.

It's a pretty good sidescroller, sort of a rethread of the original two games, almost. I remember I read a review in a magazine way back when it was new, and it basically trashed it, saying it was a boring game where you do nothing but collect the letters of Duke's name.
I thought nothing of it and dismissed it, but trying it many years later, I found it was actually pretty fun, with some good and varird gameplay, and some pretty decent humor occasionally. Collecting the D U K E letters is an optional thing you can do each level, and it's just a way to score some extra lives, in hindsight the reviewer problably just fucked around on the first level and died a bunch, never advancing, writing it off.
