milk i love how you play games so much. it seems like you enjoy games that give you freedom to direct your way-of-life within the world, and its always delightful to see those ways of life play out. i think your posts make clear that you have a truly stellar soul.

What they call Role playing in mmos is also very far from my idea of it and i want nothing to do with it. From what i can see nowadays in RP channels it's just mostly people role playing flirting with/fucking one another. VG Nerd culture has really let me down.


I hear you, I often have the same romantic visions of what games could/should be, and have visions of travelling and exploring and living beyond what the developers intended. I also don't do math, min maxing in games, I love monster hunter like broodstar but I play the game completely different from him

I have also now officially spent more time in the Discovery Tour mode of Assasin's Creed Origins than in the campaign, just traveling around Egypt and standing in the spots where you interact with npcs, like miming haggling in front of a vegetable stand

Does seem to me like Breath of the Wild would be your perfect game for these kinds of adventures though. At least among offline games.

my sim is now pregnant with her third child by santa. i'm going to do some fertility buffs so she can hopefully have twins. i decided this is a great lineage to populate my sims world with, me and santa claus, he's a great dad (tho worthless when my sim is pregnant!!), has limitless money and our kids are really cute. he's gotta die soon so idk how many more babies i can make but ideally i would have at least a set of twins so i could make The Fifth Child like the kid in the book (i downloaded an autism spectrum mod)

Imagine turning on your battery powered radio after the apocalypse, searching the airwaves for any sign of humanity, and through the snow and noise a faint voice finally comes in and it says "my sim is now pregnant with her third child by santa"

Something numinous about that phrase

Might be a gameplay spoiler, but I just played a short game with that ASD mod: I wanted to roll a sad incel-type who's obsessed with vampires. Gave him Dork, Slob, and ASD because I wanted him to be awkward in all public and social situations and I only had one free trait slot.

It was fine at first, but if his needs weren't met immediately he'd fly into a really emotional fit, which made him a pariah whenever he wasn't alone and meant I had to drop everything to bring him back to calm. And turns out your sims can die from emotional trauma. At some point the dude was arguing on the Internet in his den, threw a dramatic fit over something, had a heart attack on the spot and died. Death came (who uses a tablet now, v. progressive), the whole bit. Dude never did meet a vampire.

My next family will probably move into his house to see if they can meet his ghost and bring him back to life.

the gag is except that Autism trait mod pretty much everything else mentioned is stock game

edit: and i guess that sex mod you linked. that's one of the bigger/weirder ones. i like that one cause it gave my incel dude a 'jerk off to porn' computer option, which really drove home the lonely realism i was shooting for

I think it was the other mods that there are problems with, an otter.

my objection has nothing to do with the sims or sex positivity and everything to do with turning the autism spectrum into a gross, reductive on/off trait you dingus

the complaints are re: using the ASD mod to do some voyeuristic shit regarding people with autism, which you're comparing to "lonely sad incel-types"

oh well that's an entirely fair complaint, i'm sorry. i didn't meant to suggest ASD was an incel trait. i just needed to fit multiple anti-social traits into one slot and nothing else worked. the mod's from an anti-ableism collection

if so, the creators would probably prefer people not use it as a way to gawk at someone's invented caricature of what a disability looks like.

we love the jerking off mods, to be clear.

true, that's fair. i probably shouldn't be using autism to min/max, in hindsight. pretty problematic association on my part.
