Things that you hate! v2

There's your problem.
You're one person.

Game companies are gonna give even less of a shit about you, singular, than they are about furries, which are already a minority audience.
And for good reason, because that would be stupid business decisions.

Major/Minor is one of those kinds of games that got marketed as by furries, for furries. It got a huge amount of support from people (who admittedly are complete jokes, but the point stands) who are big in the fandom. It won fandom awards.

This garbage is what people think makes a "good" furry game.

Compare that to how many hundreds of human-protag games have really good character design.

That's because you only talk to furries.
Broaden your fucking horizons a bit. That argument's been all over the place.

I hate to mince words, but honestly it sounds like you are talking out of your ass.

Yeah, I'm ONE person, but I'm one person in a group of people that you're treating as an insignificant minority that's actually not as small as you make it out to be. If we are such a minority, why are there so many sites dedicated to furries. You say making a game with "furries" is bad, but again: only furry haters are going to care that much about the game staring anthros.

You make Major/Minor out to be the entire fandom, when it's just ONE game... supported by a limited group of furries... Not to mention, the maker is the reason the game sucks, not the furries who supported it. There are still furry games out there people put work and effort into that actually ended up being good, so making an argument by zooming in on one game isn't a very good argument.

No, that's just asinine logic.

What "good character designed human-protags" are you even talking about? Your entire post is basically degenerating to the idea that only furries can be Gary Stus, yet a big problem I have with most "well made human-protags" is not just because they're human, but because a lot of them are, sorry, Gary Stus, and a lot of the ones that aren't are still very generic. Human or not, video game designers generally don't put a lot of thought into their characters.

Just because I hang around furries doesn't mean I ONLY hang around furries. Don't make asinine assumptions, please.

Because they're made by furries.

It's almost like people make sites and hubs dedicated to the interests they have.
Shocking, I know.

You also have a severe underestimation of how many people are actually on this earth if you think furries come even close to something resembling "mattering" in terms of markets and sales. They don't.
They really don't.

I neither said that making games with furries is "bad," nor that people are going to actively dislike that being a thing.

I said that it was bad for business, because the average person isn't going to relate to a furry protagonist. A neutral is not a negative, but a neutral is bad for business.

I didn't say it was the entire fandom. I said it was a game that was supported by people who are "big name" in the fandom, therefore it's gonna get more exposure as being representative of the fandom.

I also didn't say the Patreon supporters were at fault. In fact, I even went against this in stating that the makers should have altered the submitted characters to fit the world better.

I don't know why you keep misreading my posts, because I'm not a fucking vague person. But please learn how to process words, and stop making shit up in your head that I never stated.

I'm not giving you examples because there's a shitload of human-protag games. Go do your own research.

Not enough hate for this thread imo. OneShot is good as hell, also. 

A thing I hate is when I'm doing research and I come across things written like this:

Yeah, but compare furries to other random interests. How many forums are there just for furries? How many art sites? How many groups on Deviant Art? It's just an interest, but it's still a somewhat popular one.

Several billion is a lot of humans. Even if furries do take up less than 1% (Mind you I've seen no proof of where we stand as a fandom population wise) that's still tens of thousands of people.

That's why they still make anthro games and they still sell well, because it's so totally a bad business decision. This whole logic is ruled by the misguided impression that only a furry could possibly enjoy games with talking animals, which unfortunately is incorrect. It's also ruled by the opinion that most people care all that much about the star rather than the game itself besides some furries, furry haters and the limited pool of other people that even give a flying fuck. Bad game design and reviews, biased and non-biased, are what hurt a games sales: not anthros.

Gee, if I'm as obsessed with furries as you say I am, then surely I should have heard of it before now. It's true that I look for every good furry/anthro game I can find, but I've never even heard of that one till it came up. Besides, a few "Big Name" furries is still not the entire fandom.

Let's see... You're talking as if you're angry, you're shoving one bad example of a furry game in my face, you're using theoretical logic that probably has less truth than you make it out to be (mind you a lot of my points are theoretical as well, but no less valid or invalid) and you're talking in a way that suggests about you a lot of the things you are refuting. I'm not twisting words, I'm only using your own.

You said so yourself "human-protag games have really good character design." and compared it the lead in Major/Minor, with Gary Stu usually being used to describe very poorly ballanced and/or perfect characters. Even if you aren't intentionally using those words, you suggested that you believe the characters in Major/Minor are Gary Stus.

DINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDING!!! We have a winner, folks! "I don't know why you keep misreading my posts, because I'm not a fucking vague person. But please learn how to process words, and stop making shit up in your head that I never stated." Words said BY YOU that you've contradicted in your posts by saying "I'm going purely by the context and attitudes you present," which is the very thing I've been doing to you the whole time. You say I'm speaking as if furries are pure, yet I hate to point this out, but you've been speaking and using logic as if you think very much the opposite. My problem is not only that there isn't enough quality anthro games, but too often humans in media are portrayed as god's perfect little snowflake, and only they can have any good morals or rational thoughts (which is untrue even in the real world), as well as the bias surrounding a lot of reviewers.

This is like a school-length essay. Nah thanks, I'm good.

Also this has been going on since Monday. It's Wednesday. I'm bored now, and trying to make a point is like arguing with a potato.

If you want to drag it out further, take it to my inbox. I'll be sure to run your responses through the word counter again for fun and learning, unless they're not ridiculous lengths for a casual-ass forum.
But it doesn't belong in this thread. And neither does going "BUT WHAT ABOUT DA FURRIEZ??" at random fucking posts that have nothing to do with the fandom. Keep it to yourself.

Sausage gravy. More than that, people who decide that I don't know what I'm talking about when I say I don't like gravy, so of course I need a big old jiggly dollop of that crap all over my biscuits. 


I would sooner set my biscuits on fire than drench them in nasty, white, booger-looking gravy with little sad little flecks of sausage trash in it. I was just gonna use butter but no Brenda be like "Here you go, sweetie, have some of this southern goodness <3 <3 <3" Splat. 

NO FUCKING THANKS, BRENDA. Your gravy isn't fucking magical gravy that makes my biscuits any less soggy gross. >8[

I thought about my dog again this morning, she's on my mind a lot lately because she's about 13 now, more or less, and she's got 7 years at most if she's a very lucky dog (she is a very healthy, active small dog). Though I'm cautiously awaiting it to be closer to 3-5 years, and I dont live with my parents anymore to see the state of her day to day health. Which is even worse since if something happens to her I wont be there to see it.

I dont know how I'd feel if she passed on someday, but Im surely not feeling well about it already

Getting sucked into religious debates, on furry sites...I'd rather we just made animal noises at each other than words: P

Pagan Fossa: Hisssssss!

Christian Fox: Yap! Yap! Yap!

Atheist Wolf: Grrrrrrrrrr.....

Agnostic Cat: Snarl!

or at least this what it always seems to boil down to.

I hate that I'm going to be taking 6 Full Sized classes next semester because I don't want to go to summer school.

 

I also hate one of them is in the theater, which is about a mile walk from the main campus because it's literally across a bridge through protected wetlands. MY NEXT CLASS IS 15 MINUTES AFTER THAT ONE. But...if I do it now, I never have to take any more classes in that building ever lmao. At least I have a car.

I'm about to fucking ragequit from the god damn fandom, it's become too degenerate and weird shit is just accepted out in the open, like these faggots should be allowed to walk around in public with their fetishes on their shoulders for the world to see. Keep it in the bedroom idiots.

I'm in a fur NSFW chat and this guy's posting video of his murrsuit, with a hole and his buttcrack showing for the camera. And it's not the first time people in that chat have posted fursuits in sexy poses, reclining on a bed, rubbing their crotches, patting their buts while on all fours. It is the first time I've seen someone who is open about it being a murrsuit and willing to show the hole and his anus.

I just don't get it.
FURSUITS ARE NOT FUCKING SEXY.
I have no desire to have sex with most suits. The heads are too big, you can't see your partner's face. The bodysuit is usually kinda loose and floppy like baggy 90's rapper clothing. How the fuck is that sexy? Loose baggy fur covered clothing?

BcYMe7nCIAEqYF2.png

Co08pQAUsAA6Ijs.jpg

CERsBHsWoAAibC5.jpg

Yep... totally sexy....
Nopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenope.....



The person INSIDE is sexy (well, if I find them sexy at least). Whatever makes them sexy... body hair, no body hair, their curves, if they're thin or fat, their butts or bellies or faces or hair. Not the damn costume they put on. And certainly not if they're in that baggy fursuit and lying on a bed patting their ass. I don't even see HOW that's sexy.

Sad to see this fandom allow more and more open degeneracy. Time to get the flamethower I guess.

"Cultural appropriation" as a "nope" thing. Someone was interested enough to try something from your culture, and you jump on them with a proverbial knife and equate them on the same level as rapists? Good fucking going, that's really gonna make the world a better place. How about you just accept that over time, as countries become more intertwined, cultures mix, and the fact someone did something related to yours doesn't mean they're a bad person. Hell, it should be on the contrary, because they bothered to do something, which can not be said of the bitching people. Sure, some people are flawed in their interpretation of your culture, but that doesn't mean they were wrong on purpose and their aim is to mock you like holy shit is this a wrong way to think about it. People wear halloween outfits for fun and do not don them to "reduce our struggles into some mundane outfit"...What sort of mental gymnastics must you practice to even approach this thinking style? If someone for example wore the finn's outfit from SATW and flailed a knife at people, or wore a Sami outfit, I'd be impressed and I'd fucking love that. It would be my last thought to think this was to mock me and my culture. Most people I've seen get offended have been by...wearing a spot-on geisha costume? A badass native american outfit? I honestly don't see an issue. It's an attitude thing, and these people need to check theirs.

All SJW people really mean is they want exclusive rights to remain a snowflake and bitch about others stealing their culture while they themselves don't do shit.

Having to explain how different world language education is in my state compared to other subjects each time I have to talk about education as it relate to me. Like, no, instructor, I cannot pick a grade level's requirements; world language education standards are by proficiency. Yes, I will have the same overall standards other teachers do, but I am not going to shoehorn my standards into a rubric so it is easier for you to grade because it just ruins the point of me being here. Let me learn to teach my subject.

Those "mental gymnastics" are professional scholarship discussing what it means to have power and culture and research that shows that exchanges of culture based in an imbalance of power lead to a perpetuation of the conditions that lead to the imbalance of power in the first place despite the opinions and intent of each individual involved.

As one of those scholars noted,

Quote

Discovering [oneself] to be an oppressor may cause considerable anguish, but it does not necessarily lead to solidarity with the oppressed. Rationalizing his guilt through paternalistic treatment of the oppressed, all the while holding them fast in a position of dependence, will not do. Solidarity requires that one enter into the situation of those with whom one is solidary; it is a radical posture. If what characterizes the oppressed is their subordination to the consciousness of the master, as Hegel affirms, true solidarity with the oppressed means fighting at their side to transform the objective reality which has made them these "beings for another." The oppressor is solidary with the oppressed only when he stops regarding the oppressed as an abstract category and sees them as persons who have been unjustly dealt with, deprived of their voice, cheated in the sale of their labor - when he stops making pious, sentimental, and individualistic gestures and risks an act of love. True solidarity is found only in the plenitude of this act of love, in its existentiality, in its praxis. To affirm that men and women are persons and as persons should be free, and yet to do nothing tangible to make this affirmation a reality, is a farce.

Just so you know, the person that said that basically built a career around understanding and teaching what it means to understand other people when you come from a different context - the exact situation you suggest the act of wearing a costume is. Even more, his ideas have directly impacted how teachers and students have participated in important moments of liberation in recent history like towards the end of Apartheid in South Africa and during the Arab Spring. These people do actually do quite a bit of shit, as it turns out.

That's a load of bollocks, that starts with common sense. Of course you want to treat people like people and not discard the population into one giant bracket term. I beg you, tell me how if for example I were to dress up as a viking out of admiration to such culture, am I mocking them and oppressing these modern day people? What the hell happened to the classic saying "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery", cause nowadays it's the complete opposite. This quote doesn't even have an inkling to do with dressing up. It's about meeting and respecting someone as a person after you've been a racist or an ignorant fool. It basically talks of how a former nazi can redeem themselves in the eyes of jews for example. It does not address mimicry.

I'm not denying that being deft about certain cultural aspects is important and sure enough they have been used for good, but telling some kid not to blackface and eat watermelons and act intentionally retarded is completely different from what is essentially cosplay of a real-world thing because they find it interesting. Bunching those two in together is, dare I say, generalising to the maximum.

You do not own a culture. It lives and dies. It transforms and changes places. Nobody is knowingly belittling another by wearing their clothes, and in fact by doing so WAAAYYY more often than not, shows admiration towards it instead. Hell, we should focus on spreading our cultures, spread accurate knowledge of it instead of attack anyone attempting to express their interest. I bet that within our lifetime, LANGUAGES themselves will face this similar case, where people think you're stealing culture by stealing lingo....

It is an attitude thing. You can misunderstand people and see misogyny/racism/sexism/whateverism through your hateshades, or you can just wear your common specs and look closer into the motives and such behind peoples actions and see you had it all wrong.

Dropping in this bitch real quick, before I work on my costume, because "cultural appropriation" is one of the stupidest fucking concepts that has come from the liberal arts Dumblr crowd.

Society progresses and functions because we share shit. Everything from the language you speak, to the medicines that keep you alive, have been given to us by cultural exchange.

Like if you want to be an isolationist asshole that wants to aggressively guard everything that comes from you, then go live on some remote island and don't interact with the rest of society. You can do without modern medicine and tech and shit we've exchanged throughout history for the benefit of the species.
Have fun. No one will mourn your absence.

But let the rest of us exchange and progress.

My "fave" thing about people like that (god i feel ashamed i used to be apart of that crowd) is that 99% of the people screaming about cultural appropriation are either:
-white as all hell 

-several generations removed from their culture and defensive about it. 

I've had a blog tell me it was cultural appropriation to get invited to a Korean Buddhist temple because I mentioned meditation being helpful for my anxiety. I cannot fathom being that far up my own asshole about someone else getting invited to a thing. The thing is!! There are a lot of people that want to, and adore, sharing their culture. In fact, most cultures love that! It's why games like Never Alone and Dreadout exist - it's a brief look into different cultural aspects people want to actively share. But it has literally never occurred to those kinds of people that someone might actually want to you to participate in their culture. Even southern dudes at the gas station ask me if I wanna go for a turkey shoot cuz they assume I'm a tourist. People want to actively share things they know about! How weird.

Another quick example was when I was visiting my mom's Bulgarian and Serbian friends. Had a lot of coffee and beer and food offered to me, got shown how to make ajvar, ate a ton of Ćevapi, passed out on their porch. Posted about it on tumblr and got a lot of positive response from Serbians, and some tumblr teen saying I shouldn't use other cultures to Promote My Blog (I have  uh. 10 followers, so yeah, no idea). 

 

Anyways rant over. I'm honestly also writing this to avoid doing homework

i hate how i get hella anxious about trying to do something i've never done before.  it's usually only an issue if i'm by myself, so i must therefore conclude that i'm subconsciously afraid that i will do shit wrong, make a huge mess of it, and have no one around to save me when i inevitably burst into flames or explode or whatever it is i seem to think i'm gonna do.  this can be as simple as, like, driving to a place up the street that i've never been to.  doesn't matter if it's not far and there's very little chance of me getting lost, it's still spooky until i've already done it once or twice without issue.

long story short i have no confidence and idk what to do about it :^)

Speaking of culture appropriation. I have to wonder what it'd it be like if the original Shadow Warrior were released today...

3D Realms would get fucking firebombed probably.

My "fave" thing about people like that (god i feel ashamed i used to be apart of that crowd) is that 99% of the people screaming about cultural appropriation are either:
-white as all hell 

-several generations removed from their culture and defensive about it. 

I've had a blog tell me it was cultural appropriation to get invited to a Korean Buddhist temple because I mentioned meditation being helpful for my anxiety. I cannot fathom being that far up my own asshole about someone else getting invited to a thing. The thing is!! There are a lot of people that want to, and adore, sharing their culture. In fact, most cultures love that! It's why games like Never Alone and Dreadout exist - it's a brief look into different cultural aspects people want to actively share. But it has literally never occurred to those kinds of people that someone might actually want to you to participate in their culture. Even southern dudes at the gas station ask me if I wanna go for a turkey shoot cuz they assume I'm a tourist. People want to actively share things they know about! How weird.

Even if it's a POC screaming about it, it doesn't entitle them to jack or shit.
Nothing entitles you to own and jealously guard something like social practices.

One of my friends described it as segregation, and that's literally what it is. Neat little categories and boundaries separating people by things like ancestry and race. Caucasians stay in this lane, blacks stay in this lane, hispanics stay in this lane, etc.
It's regressive as fuck, racist as fuck, and completely ass-backwards in the goal of treating everyone like equals.

How the people that pushed for things like "limited government," being "tough on crime," "states' rights," use of the term "globalism," and so many other things can literally admit they are code for despicable, racist, backwards ideas, but people keep on ignoring that reality or happily living with it.

I hate when people become so involved in politics, they legit forget what the real world looks like outside of twitter and forums; seeking comfort in a long, drawn-out post they made in between reading the latest Trump tweet which will net them 0 to 1 likes.

Because I know this was directed at me...

I made that statement because a person I know was arrested for sexual assault some time ago. I thought they were being horribly treated. They had not had a trial and it had been a long time. They were finally released because it turned out the person accusing them was being coerced into accusing them by the person actually abusing them.

The person close to me was black kid that knew the family. The person accusing was a young white girl. The abuser was her white father.

The other day somebody told me being tough on crime is necessary and that the kid should have been executed long ago because that's what we should do to people accused of raping children.

Unfortunately, some people can't escape politics. Their lives are tied to the opinions and beliefs of others.

I hate when people can't see that and forget what the real world looks like; they forget that the lives of countless others are at the whims of other people's "politics," seeking comfort in a shitpost they made between jacking off to the latest episodes of South Park which will net them 0 to 1 likes.

I hate that we don't have a subsection specifically for filtering this shit into by now.

Also keep your kinks in the Red Lantern.
They don't belong here.

Actually it was about someone on twitter.
