Why are like 50% of gamers totally antisocial sociopaths whose only emotions are seething hatred and rage? Why do so many gamers seem completely incapable of empathy or goodwill?

no, my exposure has been in actually playing multiplayer and PVP oriented games and experiencing how utterly sociopathic gamers are in their habitat.

That's because of the type of games you play, not because all "gamers" are like that. What about people who prefer single player games?
>>

 No.8944

There's plenty of reasons for it, but here are just a few.

A) You're playing multiplayer games, which are over saturated with 'competitive' type players and underrepresented with other types of players, such as story focused or exploration focused or creatively focused players. Those kinds of players tend to be far more easy going, and they are also too busy playing single player games to cool down the atmosphere in multiplayer games.
B) Antisocial parasitic retards are really fucking loud and obnoxious. They are constantly screaming and broadcasting their rage. More chill and relaxed players tend to stay quiet and just play the game. When I play a multiplayer game with a server of, say, 24 people, I generally won't find 50% assholes- what I'll find are 3 players that are public but chill, 3 players that are screeching their raging spergy assholishness, and 18 players that just keep to themselves.
C) Video games are easily accessible to children, and people who have never really emotionally matured past the state of children, for whatever reason. Children aren't really capable of separating themselves from a product, and will invest their ego and self worth into it. If someone is just kind of generally a failure that spends 100% of their available time playing video games instead of growing or maturing, then they'll continue to act like children with an inability to separate themselves from the game they're playing, which leads to seething hate and rage whenever any one of a million things causes dissonance. The server having lots of either manchildren or actual children will lead to a lot of screeching and sperging out.
D) Antisocial, antagonistic and socially parasitic attitudes are actually celebrated by large segments of capitalist society. See all the people who thought that "Greed is good" was meant as an inspirational quote. Cooperation is bad, dominating others is good. Kick and claw and fight your way to the top of the heap, then stomp on the face of everyone below you so that they can't climb up and dethrone you. These are seen as positive behaviours and encouraged, so why wouldn't that translate into video games as well?

Its not the games per say but their community, it is why many people do private games where it is only people on their friends list.

Slower, more deliberate gameplay isn't "shitty gameplay". The gameplay you're talking about is more suited for the singleplayer experience or the multiplayer "set match" experience. Twitchy, fast paced combat isn't suitable for the MMORPG experience, where this type of gameplay conflicts with the social experience which should always be put front an center. As the other poster pointed out, they were able to take down endgame bosses in the current iteration of WoW without need for communication which is a *problem* for any game calling itself "MMO".

If what you want is an adrenaline pumping, super-fast, twitchy experience, I'd never recommend Chess to you because that's not the experience you're going to get from Chess and, at the same time, even the most fast-paced MMO "action combat" system is going to be wholly inferior to singleplayer and set match multiplayer games. And you're not there for the MMO experience anyway, so why bother? Play the better game, the one that suits your tastes.

Also, I don't think even Speed Chess is going to measure up very well in comparison to most physical sports when it comes to being "adrenaline pumping". So, instead of recommending Speed Chess to someone, I'd just recommend they play a sport. Speed Chess would very likely be inferior to someone looking for that kind of experience to something like soccer, football, rugby, tennis, etc.

Talking about TNO I found a supposed leak detailing the L-NPP paths, despite the lib bias of the devs Gus still seems pretty based. Plus it also has the 1976 and 1980 L-NPP candidates.

>At this stage, mass prosecution of the upper class will begin, now that the courts are sufficiently saturated with L-NPP appointees. Hall’s FBI director will have assembled lists and evidence on the illicit gains of the American wealthy, and, starting all at once, mass arrests will be carried out of the most unsavory individuals. This is a crisis as well, as this upheaval causes capital flight from the United States,which Hall can react to in a variety of ways - including shooting down private planes.


Yeah I'm thinking he's based

there's something about the philosophy of competitive pokemon that bothers me.
i suppose it's that pokemon, more than most games, gives the impression about one where you should just make a team around your favourites - and they're probably shit, but your friends faves will also be shit - so if you're going to play against each other you're just fucking around. but at all times, basically, it's about the monsters, it's about what you like.
but then you look at competitive and it's not about that, it's about winning. so you see a different strategy built around what's objectively effective rather than what your subjective preferences are, and you see people pulling apart the game in all kind of bizarre ways to find the best way to win in a way that goes against whatever stupid philosophical stance i have.

it's not fundamentally an anti-competitive instinct. with something like chess i'm all in on how people play it in ingenuous ways, but there's something specifically about reducing pokemon to being about that style of play. perhaps i have internalized some of the confusing morality of the movies. "gotta catch 'em al– NOT LIKE THAT!!"
>>

 No.8834

>>8833
The problem is that if someone wants to win, they'll use objectively better pokémon and everyone else will be forced to do the same because losing every time to the same guy is no fun.
How about a rule that you can't use more than one pokémon of each tier?

The thing is, Pokemon was never really designed for competitive play, it was designed for you to play with your other 12-year old friends at school.

>>8833
Your cognitive dissonance ultimately stems over what it means to be a game. At its most basic level a game is a test of skill for the purpose of entertainment. If a game's test of skill is exceptionally poor, like Pokemon's, it may try to present itself as something else, perhaps analogous to stamp or coin collecting. Pokemon attempts to be a different kind of hobby to hide the fact that it has a poor test of skill, but ultimately it can't escape from the trappings of being a game and that is where the dissonance arises.

UPDATE

[b]Server is up. Server IP is: 54.39.95.135[/b]

[b]Server Name is: BunkerHell[/b]

MAKE SURE YOU LAUNCH MINECRAFT VIA THE CRACKPACK 3 MODPACK!
[b]https://ufile.io/37ru6kdy[/b]
You should be able to download them, extract and plop them into MultiMC.

I'm going to have a shitton of free time over the next few months and I'm thinking about hosting a new Leftypol Minecraft server. Had some experience back in the day hosting factions based servers on the mindcrack modpack. I'm a little rusty but I should be able to pick it all up again reasonably fast.

Right now I'm leaning towards a factions based server (maybe with factions maybe based on lefty ideologies, or people could just sort themselves into teams or w/e) a tech-y modpack based on PVP and a limited mapsize - ideally a large, continent sized island with limited resources and with borders around it so there is some competition for resources (hopefully creating incentive for political alliances and conflict). I'll try to find a plugin which allows physical territory claiming/restricts harvesting of resources on non territory so expanding, building outposts, trade between factions and etc would be encouraged. Nuclear power, high-tech weapons/defense & industry mods are of course a must. Hardcore food/agriculture mods may also be added so there is a need to diversify agriculture/food production and encourage large teams.

I'm willing to put down the money for a decent server and can probably maintain it for a while, possibly indefinitely although that all depends on interest in the idea.
