Re: Let's hate videogames!

No, I mean, like 50-60. So I guess older than middle age, actually? Anyway it's not so much age as attitude. Gamers who grew up in the 60's-70's just have a different sort of mindset, which I enjoy. A lot of the tabletop wargamers I talk to are that age and it kind of feels the way the old MTG group...

Re: Let's hate videogames!

I've actually tried to get into new MTG groups before, but it's not the same. All of my favourite memories are of playing with middle-aged guys (and sometimes their families), back when the game's membership skewed a lot older (which was a looonnng time ago). And yeah, I just got sick of waiting for...

Re: Let's hate videogames!

It's funny because instead of giving up games I gave up TV and, to a lesser extent, movies. I find non-interactive visual media (print media, including online print, is fine, because I can read it as fast as I'm comfortable with) bores me. The occasional movie is fine... it's not like watching somet...

Re: Let's hate videogames!

One thing that's definitely changed happened is that I no longer want to have much to do with games where I wait around for some corporation to do what I want. So I play tabletop wargames or heavily moddable games like Skyrim where I can build and rebuild things as I please. The main exception are g...

Re: Hot Tweets Cool Treats

You know, had this been published a decade, or even half a decade, ago, I might have brushed it off as vindictive. But over the years, looking at Joss Whedon's body of work, both in detail and in aggregate, it's become abundantly clear that he's not a feminist. This is just another nail in the coff...

Re: Let's hate videogames!

Yeah, a lot of games just seem blah for me too. There's a few that are fun but they're often a very small minority.

I'm sure there's lots of reasons that this will be the case.

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

I know a really nice guy who's one of the four heads who organize the annual MLP con in Seattle. He's been doing the job for about as long as the con's been running and tries his best to ensure it's a fun affair, mainly oriented towards children, but a nice space for everyone. Anyway, he was talking...

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

We were talking about the various waves of Confederate statues being put up. Interestingly the Globe happened to have a feature article today that goes into a lot of detail about this - including a full graph showing exact dates and types of individual monuments.
