Re: Inclusivity in games

I've seen it too many times before that when someone (me in this case) tries to provide a counterpoint or alternate angle to some of the ideology promoted in threads like these, everything blows up. Even when it's me saying my own experiences as a minority member are not consistent with what some pe...

Re: Inclusivity in games

Even if you personally don't feel the bite of being excluded or ridiculed in the media, other people do. It's easy to say that people are making a big deal out of nothing when you are not affected. I didn't say no one felt bad from being excluded in media nor did I say it was a big deal over nothin...

Re: Inclusivity in games

Personally I think this thread would strongly benefit from dropping the use of the word 'inclusive', which is being used to mean AT LEAST three wildly different things. I'll go a step further and say it conjures up images of touchy-feely seminars or guest speakers and let's talk about our feelings~...

Pick the forum members' brains for your game :)

I had a question and thought maybe it would be good to have a thread where people can get human responses to their VN-related questions. There are a lot of people with different backgrounds here, right? So I'll kick it off with my question: Does anyone here have experience with film? I'm talking vid...

Re: Inclusivity in games

The attitudes I think could benefit from adjusting at the ones where people say "I'm making the game I want, and I don't care what anyone else thinks." That's a really immature attitude, even from indie devs. I think if you're making a game as a hobby, you really need some of that attitude. Some. I...

Re: Inclusivity in games

Even if you are making a men-only game, the creator should at least try to avoid sexism toward women. And in that case, toward men as well ;) We are constantly portrayed as villains, hyper-muscular pigs, and loser geeks (not geeks... loser geeks :P ) You shouldn't be a jerk, but I still maintain ma...

Re: Inclusivity in games

How about "make what you want to make so it's fun and not a chore"? Unless it's commercial, screw what everyone else wants. Everyone else isn't putting in the time, effort, or (possibly) money. Then you can actually finish your game. A finished game includes way more players than an unfinished chore...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

@kura: Hopefully no one is laughing at your misery. There are only a handful of people in the world whose misery I'd laugh at, and you're not one of them.

I would suggest changing your signature for the time being to avoid further complications.

Yes, I think I'll have to chip in too... once you live somewhere long enough you start feeling like you should probably be helping to pay for utilities :wink: Chipping in for chips! :D Count me in too, of course!

Re: Looking for a visual novel, forgot the name

@Sunlit-Dreamer: Yeah, this stuff does come up once in a while... "Name that VN"? :D
I'm not sure how we'd get new people to post in the correct thread, though.

We can just put in FAQ: "Direct all VN identification questions to gekiganwing" ;D
