It was hard for me to get into Final Fantasy VIII, but I really wanted to. I came to it too late and only had it on the Steam version (this is before the remaster was released), and the camera made me want to die a little bit. Also I guess the beginning is universally accepted to be slow and hard to get into. I really liked Final Fantasy XIII, which I know is an unpopular opinion, and have hit a roadblock on my progression through XIII-2. I played XV through all the fun parts, and couldn't bear to go any further once we got on the train (that's not a spoiler, but should help anyone who's played understand).

Morrowind is one of my all-time favourite games! I got so into the lore and writing of that game, and have replayed it multiple times over the past 20... years... :geh: But seriously, I think it's one of the best games ever made, and that's saying something given the garbage fire that Bethesda would later become.

I also really love Obsidian games! I recommend most of them. Deadfire, Knights of the Old Republic 2, Tyranny... they make some of the best RPGs out there, almost entirely thanks to the fact that they employ some of the best writers to ever be in the video game industry. It makes me happy to talk about them.

Funny enough, FF8 fit me kinda like a glove :shrugshrug:
I tend to get really into grinding and I actually have kind of a fun time drawing for a ton of spells and then demolishing them
Though I don't think I'm very far at all; I just for some reason have a hard time sticking with games in general :frown:
But I still love it, it feels like there's a lot I can do if I want to :spider:

From what I can tell there's solid reasons people will prefer Morrowind over later Elder Scrolls titles
personally I just for some reason am drawn to old games :spider: dunno why

I think I've heard of those but not played them, though I always hear that I should
but I'm so bad at actually completing games it feels like I wouldn't get the full experience
:spider:

Ah, what wonderful graphics. It's so much better than how my NationStates pages look.

Oh my god I've been murdered.

But it's true, the graphics were outdated almost as soon as the game was released. But the story is near to my heart, despite its flaws.

The graphics look cool! I honestly do like them.

But that is how I actually play NS sometimes...

When I turned this back on to get old posts, I admittedly did not expect anyone to notice.

makes the forum post channel light

Hey :)

I'll be taking a break from Discord cause when I rejoined after a couple days I got really nervous and just couldn't take it again. So until I'm perfectly ready I'll imitate a talking mongoose and live within the walls of this topic baking y'all yummy cakes! ^_^

A short and gentle confession I wanna get off my chest is every time I've heard references to a particular website it made me uneasy and got progressively more painful each time I heard it. I then felt largely unincluded and like I was missing out on something and once even considered rejoining the website, despite being constantly reminded of ways that it hurt me when I thought about it. But as wise people have told me, I don't gotta do that.

Please know that I adore every one of your souls and I am proud to call you lovely tea dragons my friends  :purpleheart:
Y'all mean the  :planet: to me

Hey Dyll 💚

I'm glad that you're posting here, because this was where I retreated to when discord was making me feel extremely anxious as well, and I just hung out here until I felt better again.

I don't blame you for feeling the way you admit in your confession. We're hoping to provide that extra separation so that you can just mute the floors in the admin tower and not worry about it too much. Obviously a lot of our people are still coming in from that place, so there's going to be a lot of discussion about it. But one thing I'm really happy about over the past few months is that there's been more and more of that separation, people are just happy to hang out and be friends, and I think that's a good thing.

I adore you too <3 and I'm happy that you're here.

Em! Luca!  :purpleheart: :purpleheart:


Thanks Em, that means a lot really :) I'm really grateful that my reaction to it has been taken with love. I'm also grateful that things are being done, because the way seeing references to it makes me feel is not healthy for me

So my recent break lasted five days, I don't know why or how I thought that was enough.

Last night was pretty bad for me emotionally and this is the first time I've gotten out of bed since like 7 in the afternoon yesterday. Needless to say, I can't keep projecting my traumas on other people and I need to seek therapy and focus on my mental health. I really don't want to have a negative impact on anyone so I'm gonna try my best to stay away from the discord server until I am okay, which won't be easy cause I adore you all and I'll miss you guys. If I'm doing things right, I won't stop by for a bit.

You can always dm me on discord if you'd like! Talking makes things better :)
