it's hard to get annoyed by adults who still go on like the kid who swears he lost his virginity at Butlins over the summer.
I used to get that "I haven't got the time" patter from certified gaming nerds on a forum I used to go to.
I'd post a 1cc or wax lyrical about spelunky or something and they'd be like "Mate, I haven't got the time for that sort of shite, I'm living my jetset lifestyle, yeah?" and then they'd go and post about how they'd finally collected all the bat eggs in their padded out 50 hour cowman/spiderboy single player campaign and how much closure it'd brang.
If you're time poor, arcade games and roguelites are much more respectful of your time and have a "pick up and play" and more importantly, a "drop at any point" ethos that is much more conducive to adult "I am a big man" hairychin playtime.
"Look mate, I just want to veg out on the sofa and watch the big AAA game with a beer in my hand and a pad in the other, alright? It's current, all my mates are playing it, it gives me something to talk about round the watercooler. It makes me feel like I exist." I could totally understand that, but of course nobody ever said anything of the sort. The stigma your core
gamer fears the most is that they might not be hardcore
. Absolutely fucking ridiculous.
I'd post about games like hack, slash, loot, a game that is pretty much just a fruit machine, you click and see how your luck pans out, essentially, they'd scoff at that and turn back to their smoke and mirrors.
I suppose that's the other side of the coin though.
Why can't people just like what they like and not have a complex about it? Why can't people like something and still feel free, uninvested enough to discuss it's failings at the same time?
Why won't you just hold me tight and kiss me hard on the mouth, goddammit?!
