  • No matter how long it takes, the cliches of modern humanization still enrage me. :(

    Also...

    Random Person: Looks are superficial. It doesn't matter what a hero looks like.

    Same Person: EVERY hero NEEDS to look like a human even if they're not supposed to be and it makes no sense for them to look human.

    @gstv87 Also, I can't find the original post or what fairy you are talking about. I couldn't really even look it up, cause I just typed Fairy Lineage 2 and got results all over the place, but didn't see any fairy results that looked inhuman.

    Another reason why humanoids like elves, dwarves and orcs are so prevalent is because their typical anatomy is just best suited for the job.

    There is no known organism on this planet that can handle objects and operate contraptions and constructs with such finesse and precision as humans can.

    That's why many non-human species in games are also bipedals with two hands and opposing thumbs.

    I don't mind THAT, so much. It's just the whole "Species unrelated to humans yet look identical to humans" trope.
    Me and my friend got into one of our usual discussions after I reccomended him a game, and I remember the last time we had a discussion like that, he disabled his FA account. This time, I found myself constantly checking my friends account hoping it wouldn't happen again. ...But it didn't.

    The thing is... I just can't lie about my feelings, sometimes. :(

    ...Really? You don't know?

    Basically, it's a fan of Anthropomorphic characters. Generally, someone who draws them or makes costumes. Some even make animations, videogames, etc. starring anthropomorphic animals.

    Also, I messed up. I said it didn't happen at the end, when it did.
    Honestly, I cannot stop thinking about the whole elves vs anthros argument I had a while ago, because apparently I'm supposed to prefer what are usually elitist superhumans who "care about nature" but never actually do anything for it and live where nature is effectively stealing from nature over colorful, diverse and aesthetically entertaining animal designs because most people don't write well or care about looks.
    I keep forgetting. Who are the mods again?

    If anything, the things I complain about on a regular basis aren't as bad as they used to be, but I still always feel kind of frustrated over it.

    Sometimes I do the same. Sometimes I post, then wish I didn't. Then it pops up 5 years later, when I'm having a hard time trying to get to sleep, just so I can think about it some more - and still not sleep. And I still wish I didn't post :)

    That sounds like something that's better off talking to an actual personal friend about something that's bugging you in life, rather than thrusting it at the anonymous Internet. Or, if they're things that bother you regularly, possibly to a therapist who can help you (obviously I have no idea what the actual topics you're thinking about are).
    *mom is listening to a book*

    Character 1: Who is Steven Spielberg?

    Character 2: A director.

    Character 1: Where do I know him from?

    Me: I wonder what movie they are going to reference. Back to the Future? ET? Jurassic Park?

    Character 2: Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    Me: -_-

    To me it felt like the writer watched too much Ancient Aliens.
    (Just before watching Cystal Skull I had recently been in the hospital after a surgery... AA had a marathon on SyFy & was the only remotely interesting thing on.)

    Don't get me wrong. My issues with the film had very little to do with the alien themed plot concept. There were a million other cringe-worthy problems that were more aligned with bad writing, bad acting...bad choices in general.

    At this point, "unique and diverse cast of characters" might as well be slang for Every Character is a Human-Sue.

    @Kyuukon It really is that simple. There's stuff out there for everyone. There's no need to rant and rave about others enjoying characters that are familiar, and certainly no need to make an unfounded claim that people like what they like because they're malicious.

    @Finnuval I didn't mean you actively trying to make me cave, but whatever.

    Also, I don't care how much lore elves have. Magical humans that live longer and different lives are still humans IMO. It's not "lack of knowledge," just hoe I feel.

    Oh, how I wish I could still lock status updates...

    I think this one needs to be done, everyone to their respective corners. If there's any temptation to keep posting, I'll delete the whole thing. @Benny Jackdaw In the future, if you are frustrated with the argument, walk away.
    A while ago, I had a talk with my friend about something that greatly upsetted him, and I worried that we couldn't make that friendship work. Now that feeling is stronger than ever. :(
    If there is any ad that I don't mind seeing before a YouTube video, It's the Tik Tok ad with the baby hippo in it. *squee*
    I used to have a dear friend on Facebook and deviantART. We shared a lot of the same opinions and virtue, but someday is, she would become so pessimistic that nothing I said could cheer her up. Now another friend is making me feel like I am becoming that person, and I don't want to become that person.

    It's okay for people to be negative. And it's okay for you to just accept that, and not try to change anything, or cheer them up. :kaopride:
    Pessimism comes from trying to change or manipulate things you don't have control over.
    So don't try to control these sort of things, and just accept them. And you won't end up becoming pessimistic. :LZScheeze:

    You WILL become like them if you continue to spend time with them and they don't change. If you can't cheer them up and they continue down that path, you will be doing yourself a favor to spend less time with them. Been there, done that. Tried to "fix it", didn't work, and the attitude was rubbing off on me. Such a relief to get myself out of the whole situation.

    honestly, honestly, the way the form is structured is Bizarro. Maybe I just made this when I was frustrated with the new layout.
    by now, I think most people know that I hate misanthropic bad guys, but I realize one more reason I hate them so much is because the motive is easy and takes no thought to come up with. It's actually more challenging to create a villain that doesn't have that motive.

    It's very common for sure. It's much more interesting for the player to have a deeper connection with a major antagonist instead of them just generally keeping to themselves and hating people just because.

    @Benny Jackdaw, do not worry about reputation. People just looked at MZ threads mostly now lol.
    really struggling to make a video I want to release on YouTube. The subscription I have to my video editing program is going to waste.

    Honestly, Finnuval, That previous discussion I had that got locked, honestly, I still have things I want to say on the matter. I also kind of want to continue our discussion, if you are willing.

    Well, you know my stance on the matter. If the discussion can remain civil (so no caps, cursing, etc) , stays within reason and is based on the mutual acceptence that neither of us is going to be absolutly right (we are talking opinions here so yeah) then you are welcome to PM me. If this is not something you think you can do then it might be better to leave things as they are however.

    Are bots on YouTube a thing? I uploaded a video this morning, and someone named music complimented the video and said he wanted to be friends, but he posted this comment in less time then it would have taken to watch the video from when I uploaded it.

    I was shopping with my parents yesterday, and I saw a dude with a big cat mask. I asked jokingly if he was trying out for the next Masked Singer, and then he started rapping. I am not making this up.
    I'm starting to become a little worried about Obsorber. he hasn't logged in for weeks and he hasn't responded to my comments on his game, or commented on the last chapter I gave him. I hope he didn't get the Coronavirus. :-(

Another camping area.
I just found out somebody pirated my 3,99$ game. I spent over a year making it and somebody just publish it for free a week after early access released.

I should be glad, cuz if they pirate you, that means your game has to be good, but im not. I barely sold any copy. Didn't get any info from most of the sites I wrote.
So I'm hoping that I get an MRI on my knee soon, but until then, I'm on a prescription dosage of ibuprofen. It's definitely helping, but my knee is still hurting and occasionally locks up. The urgent care doctor was convinced it's a meniscus tear due to it locking, and said that if it is, I'll need surgery. :(
