Are you someone who used to play videogames, but stopped b/c you lost interest for some reason? I'd like to talk to you. For a thing. Plz RT
— David Wolinsky (@davidwolinsky) December 10, 2014

What is this?


Don't die started because I found the conversation around videogames online to be stifling. It's repetitive, dehumanizing, and typically fixated on consumer goods -- videogames as products, not the creative products of individuals.

So in January 2015 I set about talking to people who make videogames and people who used to play them, focusing on certain problems and misperceptions within the industry. Nine months and more than 100 interviews later, it is abundantly clear don't die is growing beyond the perspectives these two groups can provide. The questions are getting bigger.

"We've moved beyond the idea that women wearing pants is a problem. Women wearing pants is powerful, it's strong, everybody accepts it, and it's associated with the patriarchy, it's associated with being male. The minute a man puts on a dress it's disgusting, so what are you saying? Men are strong, women are disgusting? I'm not doing that anymore. I'm done with that. I'm a man in a dress and if I feel like wearing a dress I'm gonna wear one." - Billy Porter

Thankfully, Steam can answer this question for me:
- Dota 2 (~1900 hours)
- Fallout 4 (176 hours)
- Tropico 4 (102 hours)
- Civilization V (90 hours)
- XCOM: Enemy Unknown (78 hours)

However, in "Time left running unattended", the n°1 should be SimCity 2000.

More than 30 years in, I still am surprised and disappointed that no piece of entertainment can provide me the same enjoyment I felt the first I enjoyed a similar piece, or even the same one. Applies to #videogames, #music, #movies and #books.
 
How much more chaotic your favorite team-based fantasy game would become if area of effect magic spells affected your teammates as well?

Dota 2 would be a mess. Several of its heroes would be rendered too hot to touch.

I made a #tetris . It doesn't have some stuff tetris games tend to have, but it has some new ideas of my own. For instance clearing a line separates all pieces touching that line into their own block, causing them to fall. After clearing more than 4 lines you get to choose the type of the next 4 pieces. A big version of normal blocks spawn every 50 placed pieces. Activating a POW and landing a piece makes all pieces independent/loose so they fall. Been working on this for 2 weeks. http://tetris.merkoba.com #videogames #games #programming
 

Interesting view on the use of the word 'Community' (geared towards gaming)


I've always been hesitant to call myself a member of any community, if only because invariably, there are members of that community that share views that are different than my own, and calling myself a member paints me with that same brush. There are many views- both good and bad- wrapped up in any conglomeration of people. And when you get to online identities, you have to deal with the fact that you might not be looking at someone's true face.

I play Video and Computer Games but am not a member of that community. I play RPGs and Board Games but am not a member of that community. I'm into Mechanical Keyboards but am not a member of that community. And so on, and so on. Dealing with people on an individual level has always been my go to. Not to make assumptions for the good nor the bad.

This blog post summarizes a lot of thoughts that I'd had more eloquently than I could ever have written them.

#Kantar's company has instead developed #digital #assessments that resemble #videogames. They put users in #simulated #environments and present them with a series of tasks, while capturing the #decision #making #process that users employ to complete them. And because each simulation is unique, the tests are " #cheatproof ".
Her tests are also being used in hiring potential employees. They have worked with companies like #McKinsey to create game based tests that measure " #prospective #employees’ #decision-making, #adaptability, and #critical #thinking." #McKinsey says they will double the number of candidates taking the #Imbellus #assessment by the end of 2019.
close.....but only if you think the point of college is to get a job. It currently IS the point of #college, but that's not what college has HISTORICALLY been for.

Dato curioso:
Este juego estuve a punto de pasármelo con todos los coleccionables al 100% pero se me corrompió la partida.
Y eso me pasó dos veces ;n;

I got basically addicted to Super Mario Bros. 1 and 3, and Super Mario World, for a while.

The New Super Mario Bros. series just doesn't do it for me. When I fail at something, I just don't feel like working at it to get better in the NSMB series. It doesn't keep my interest.

And thus began my love of Elder Scrolls
 
Checking the A.I. we created for #Dstroy2, so we can easily test the local multiplayer each by ourselves.
And well, the A.I. don't even need to be smart to beat me already... not sure we should improve it!

It's a game made by Motion twin, a French anarcho-syndicalist coop.


From their steam page:
Motion Twin is an anarcho-syndical (seriously) workers cooperative that’s been making games in France since 2001. No boss, equal pay, equal say. It’s an experiment and an experience!
It's also very fun, so I'd recommend it if you enjoy rogue-likes/metroidvanias.

I suppose this is a bit out of left field - a screenshot wouldn't do it, so I posted a full image of the cover. My first foray into programming.
 
Tonigt, on Unfortunate and Glaring Examples Of What I Said Earlier, gamers have been publicly complaining that some female protagonists of the new Mortal Kombat game aren’t busty enough to their liking, going so far as calling “flat-chested” a character with what seems to be a B-C bra size at a glance. #VideoGames
You can have pretty much any sexual preferences, but especially as a cishet white dude you probably shouldn’t describe them in public. It’s your own business, nobody needs to know how much you are prejudiced against any group of people.
 
 
I loathe that I have to ruin someone’s evening to get a win I could obtain from a computer foe that doesn’t care. #videogames
 
I got an email that Game Dev Tycoon from @GreenheartGames was on sale on Steam so I did the right thing: I bought it full price directly from them: greenheartgames.com/app/game-dev-t… #VideoGames

Made some headway (9 hrs.) into Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It fascinates me as what feels like a tryhard "Switch port" of a PS4 game, except there is no PS4 counterpart. It runs at 720p docked, even in menus. The resolution scaling can kick in hard during battles and cutscenes with tons of effects, turning them into sub-HD mush. Its rendering pipeline is decidedly current-gen, with what looks like physically-based rendering (cel shading aside) and temporal anti-aliasing, so a hypothetical "Switch pro" or a future version of Yuzu emulator running the game at an unlocked resolution could be transformative. Its environments are strikingly detailed. But for now, the game recalls its predecessor, which ran at a paltry 480p on the Wii and proved to be relatively majestic on an emulator @ 1080p.

Content-wise it's more colorful and better-paced. The liberal translation, though, tries to remove every ounce of Japanese-ness... Show more...

To be fair, Need for Speed: Undercover isn't a very good game on its own, but I'm willing to overlook a lot of flaws to be able to drive a pimped Mazda RX-8 through traffic over another fantastic soundtrack: https://open.spotify.com/user/needforspeed/playlist/4EhsPhejrIGJLw63zrNgQX

I bought Transistor because it was made by Supergiant Games, the creators of Bastion, and I ended up reinstalling Bastion again, because it's so good.

I've never liked the argument that #videogames were good because they could somehow improve reflexes or anything other skill. I've been playing video games for 28 years now and I'm still panicking in tense situations arising because of tunnel vision.
 
I've rarely seen a game so stingy with achievements like Northgard by Shiro Games: only 10/81 after completing the story mode. Good. Achievements aren't meant to reward players for a playthrough they would have done anyway. See blog.mrpetovan.com/game-design-ti…

Hello, Im #newhere and interested in #motorcycles, #technology, and #videogames. I was incredibly excited about Diaspora when it was first announced but ended up not getting it an honest shot. Looking to see how its evolved since then.

I'm curious about this platform and hope to meet new friends! Would love to talk about anything really (the stuff I listed are just the things I'm actively interested in, but I'm passively interested in just about anything to be honest).
