        a hobby is one thing, but overlooking an art medium which is incorporating some of the greatest ideas of mankind into the most profound experiences (which by the way happen to have a stronger effect than any other medium) is a crime in my opinion.

        You can't just criminalize or fault people for not liking stuff or immersing themselves to X depth, dawg. World doesn't work like that.

        not blaming anyone. The situation is actually really complex. Heizinga described the inability to be playful as puerilism, so the roots of such problem of perception trace way back to the bourgeois revolution according to him. I just think that it's a crime towards ourselves. If the whole world became playful and incorporated the playful modus of thinking from videogames, we'd live in much better and brighter place.

        I skipped the portable ones but played the trilogy way back. Definitely playing this one this year.

        it's definitely an improvement. the characters feel more complex and Kratos has kinda chilled down, which makes him much more likable (although he's still a bit cliched imo)

      Damn, SOMA is probably one of the deepest games I've played in a while in terms of story.

        Yes! I loved it, it was a very compelling storyline. The whole atmosphere and setting was very cool too. Great game.

        I had dreams of the monsters. it's as if the feeling of existential dread found a place in my heart and made me a bit stronger. like damn, I didn't expect a game to evoke such a deep feeling..

      has anyone read the Yu-Gi-Oh manga? is it any good? I couldn't watch the anime, found it too childish and boring

        Ancient Egypt. High Risk Games. Tournaments. Friendship. Death/Murder. Mystery. Bullying. Curses.
        You will want to read the manga called just Yu-Gi-Oh!, as the one called Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist skips a large portion of the story.
        You can read it online or buy the 3 in 1 Edition volumes.

        I did a bit of research and it seems the english translations online just call volume 8 and up Duelist. So if you read online, you'll start reading Yu-Gi-Oh! then after 8 volumes, you start reading Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. It makes me quite angry that the series is split up like that. It wasn't split up like that in Japanese and other languages, only the english one.

        It got confusing at Colossi 5. For some reason the sword mislead me twice so I had to go to wiki. I don't regret it though, the barren atmosphere is incredibly immersive and meditative

    Let others complain that the times are wicked. I complain that they are paltry; for they are without passion. The thoughts of men are thin and frail like lace, and they themselves are feeble like girl lace-makers. The thoughts of their hearts are too puny to be sinful. For a worm it might conceivably be regarded a sin to harbor thoughts such as theirs, not for a man who is formed in the image of God. Their lusts are staid and sluggish, their passions sleepy; they do their duty, these sordid minds, but permit themselves, as did the Jews, to trim the coins just the least little bit, thinking that if our Lord keep tab of them ever so carefully one might yet safely venture to fool him a bit. Fye upon them! It is therefore my soul ever returns to the Old Testament and to Shakespeare. There at least one feels that one is dealing with men and women; there one hates and loves, there one murders one’s enemy and curses his issue through all generations—there one sins.
