How are these boomer games?

my guess for why the wiz posted kenshi:
single player
can pause the game and control time
real time strategy squad/god game
tactical thinking is rewarded
old fashioned user interface

the thread does say "some new shit worthy of attention. None of that zoomer shit." and it doesn't seem like zoomer shit

What do you mean by boomer games? Gamer boomer have played in their youth or games a boomer could play and enjoy? If it's the latter I definitely see why an older guy would enjoy Kenshi, not sure about Soma.

saya no uta is a comfy VN, by the same person who made madoka magica, never watched it but saya no uta is a very interesting game that had me thinking about the story a while after I finished it

with regards to games I would recommend, I had fun playing VA-11-HALL-A and a lot of fun playing the original dark souls a few years back, don't waste your money on the remaster it looks worse in some bits.

>>41717
the games I had most fun on co op was factorio though I would have had as much fun playing it on single player.

if you like factorio try zachtronics games or getting into CS/discrete mathematics.

I would like to get into arcanum or underrail but am too low IQ for either, whenever I tried to ask for help about them online I was responded with "fuck off troll" I dunno if the community is schizophrenic or if I am that retarded.

Why do developers no longer respect a player's time? When did it become acceptable to bog everything down in immense amounts of grinding to unlock basic content? Rogue likes where you spend 20 hours unlocking different weapons just so you can get lucky and find a good one to finish the game. Long in engine cut scenes where you hold forward while 10 gig of audio files play at you. What happened to just making a decent couple of hours game play?

Disrespecting the player starts with multi-gigabyte 0-day patches. Ship the game properly coded and compress your patches (7z or zip).

If you're not normie then people refuse to socialize with you past small talk, and books like 'how to make friends and influence people' require you to turn into some elite manipulator. In the end I've found media to be the only thing to learn the intricacies of socializing. Bloodlines the masquerade was great for this, but I haven't found any other non-cringe socializing videogame. Any recommendations?

>it will still be tainted by people explicitly or implicitly acting for the camera
Which is a great big problem these days due to every normie being always online and addicted to their beloved social media. It's like there is always some camera to act for. People are desperate to be the star of their own private show, affirmed by a popularity score measured in strangers' comments and upvotes. Even if someone isn't trying to attention whore at the moment there's always a risk someone else could be either recording them or commenting on their behavior. Everyone needs to be more guarded and fake than before. Can there ever be genuineness in a world like this? Can there be true trust between people without the security from public repercussions provided by privacy of personal exchange? Even more severe consequences can be imagined. It goes all the way to loss of self, or some kind of surrendering of sovereignty of one's mind. By following the drive or pressure to submit every personal thought and detail of one's private life for the public to see, scrutinize, criticize and put to popular vote online. What are the implications for original, independent thought, free will, peace of mind, the social contract, trust in self and confidence in all trust-based bonds in general?

 No.51244

>>51218
Technically, all social interaction is just conversation, but there's different kinds of conversations, with different goals and intricacies. The podcast convo is usually "what do you think about X?" and even autistic people are good at that, just talking about what they're interested in. However, you might be surprised to find out that most people get turned off by long-winded discussion or debates, it will seldom make you the coolest guy in the room for knowing a bunch of facts. It's very impersonal, to say the least, and you often step on people's toes if you're disagreeable.

Consider the basic rapport building kind of conversation, when you need to get to know someone better. The goal is different, you're supposed to find common ground and sort of implicitly affirm to each that you're OK, trustable etc. In that case, you're not going to go off into any kind of controversial topic, because 9/10 people will think you're being a deliberate an asshole and attacking their beliefs or interests.

Then consider maybe flirting (yes, irrelevant for a wizzie). It consists entirely of trying to convey sexual/romantic interest, without outright saying it.

There's all kinds of intricate games people play. It's really simplistic to think that's just a back-and-forth and saying what you think.

 No.51246

Unironically dating sims and adventure games where you have to "win" conversations to progress.
It is some of the things that helped me dip my toe into interpersonal communication skills as a autist.
That said you have a totally wrong idea about what books similar to "how to win friends" actually teach. If you are going to be so aggressively wrongheaded about the subject of interpersonal communication then you are dooming yourself to willful ignorance. A place no one could nor should help you from.

Anyway even playing through the old flash games in the genera can help you get started with super low risk practice.

You also really should pick up a book on interpersonal communication and practice the skills. Preferably with a family member or friend of the family (aka unofficial family).

VN usually don't have enough interaction and very limited choice so I actually wouldn't recommend them since practice is a lot better then just reading conversations.

The first big one being, how many games do you finish a year? This is the one I really want an answer to. Getting some answers/feedback to all the others provided below would also be appreciated.

How long is your backlog? Does it feel like a burden to you & do you chastise yourself for not clearing more games that you have on the back burner? Are you like me and is it an obsessive matter that you can't shake even if you want to? Do you find anhedonia makes finishing games or working through your backlog immensely difficult? Do you even bother with a backlog?

Do you feel as if time is running out, either with your current life situation, or with society at large, and you'll never get around to playing certain games you might really enjoy? Do you ever procrastinate playing these sorts of games, even if you know you'll probably enjoy them, merely because it feels like too much effort?

Do you still enjoy gaming? Do you bother to play a lot of different games, or do you just stick to a couple old reliables & don't bother with the rest? What about the classics? Have you played them all? Do you even want to play them all? If not, don't you feel like you're missing out? Is FOMO a concern when gaming for you? Is FOMO a concern in other forms of media, like films or anime or whatever else?

Do you ever have the need to prove yourself when gaming? Does a sense of pride or validation from straining yourself ever factor into how effectively you're able to enjoy yourself? Do you care about how well you do, even if it's in a non-competitive experience like a single player game? Are you like me and, at least in a subtle way, push yourself so you can meet your own standards and therefore feel better than other people because of how good you think you are?

Do you find your skills degrading as time goes on? Are there certain genres, or games, that you simply couldn't see yourself as playing anymore?

Did you ever waste a lot of time playing stuff you didn't enjoy? Do you still find yourself doing this? If so, do you feel as if that has partially hindered your ability to derive satisfaction from the past time? Do you feel anhedonia is inevitable? If so, do you feel as if anhedonia becomes a new normal & that it will forever hang over you like a dark rain cloud, even outside of gaming?

>how many games do you finish a year?
none. can't get into them. might replay an old game for a few mins or days at most just to remind myself of something.

>How long is your backlog?

Don't have one anymore. Watched everything I want to death. Now into surfing/ pathfinding as some kind of shinto ritual thing. Have to make it my own thing. Rather, impossible to avoid.

>Do you feel as if time is running out

Only felt this when I was young, likely from parental/ society pressure. It's something most serious people realize is false.

>Do you still enjoy gaming?

Not really. They aren't on the same wavelength and heavily restricting.

>Do you ever have the need to prove yourself when gaming?

This never came up even as a kid. I just pursued whatever was fun. Eventually got fixated on 'hard' content and ran out. Only thing left is arbitrary 'sports' ways of playing in team games or speed running. It's a viable thing to pursue but I have better things going on.

>Do you find your skills degrading as time goes on?

Reaction times/ memory recall/ strategical thinking. Stuff I don't care about.

>Did you ever waste a lot of time playing stuff you didn't enjoy?

Not in the past. Sometimes now when looking around for the next thing. The anhedonia dissipates as I get closer to what I should be doing, which is rarely games.

Eternal
>Does it feel like a burden to you & do you chastise yourself for not clearing more games that you have on the back burner?
No, I try to enjoy each game, not just rush them.
>Do you find anhedonia makes finishing games or working through your backlog immensely difficult?
No, not really, I still enjoy games.
>Do you even bother with a backlog?
I used to have a txt file with a backlog but now I just keep it in my head.
>Do you feel as if time is running out, either with your current life situation, or with society at large, and you'll never get around to playing certain games you might really enjoy?
Not really, what I feel is that I'd probably never play certain games because they either need a really demanding pc or a console which I'll never buy.
>Do you ever procrastinate playing these sorts of games, even if you know you'll probably enjoy them, merely because it feels like too much effort?
If a game is too difficult I might procrastinate a bit because I get angry pretty easily and some days I just can't put up with some games' bullshit.
>Do you still enjoy gaming?
I do, a lot.
>Do you bother to play a lot of different games, or do you just stick to a couple old reliables & don't bother with the rest?
I have a couple I go back to but usually I play a game, beat it and move on to a new one. I really like beating games I guess.
> What about the classics? Have you played them all? Do you even want to play them all?
I haven't and I don't know, maybe I will.
