Not counting Spyro and Skylanders for obvious reasons, I'm honestly not overly fond of how this site talks pretty much solely about Nintendo games and not much else. (Even then it's pretty much just about Pokémon 90% of the time anyways)
I don't particularly care to use dedicated forums for those types of things because I never really click with other gaming communities quite as well, and a majority of them are either a bit too slow or a bit too active for my taste.
(And hardly ever somewhere in-between)

It admittedly strikes me as a bit odd, to say the least, since I'm pretty sure people here play more than what is usually talked about.
It's not really a big deal either way, as it's more of a minor gripe than anything, it's just that I personally find it to be a tad monotonous having to always talk about the same, like, three things and not much else. *shrug*

Obviously I don't expect people to do anything about this, nor do I necessarily want anyone to, I just think about this a lot surprisingly.


personally i think its partially been because of the slow news and their respective fanbases.
id argue that sony has a fairly large following here, but everyone pretty much plays and talks about the more retro stuff, or things that are getting a remake. state of play was a pretty good example of how playstation is floundering as they pour most of their resources into presumably the PS5. we got days gone, mk11 (which is actually multiplatform), crash team racing skins, and a bunch of VR. all in all, not very interesting. sure playstation has some pretty sweet upcoming stuff, like death stranding and persona 5 royal, but we've seen next to nothing on either of those other than a handful of trailers, and the latter is rumored to be going multiplatform anyway.

xbox is... well, xbox. it has its exclusives, sure, but it largely feels like they try to cater to the "more popular" crowd that goes for games like FIFA and call of duty. theres nothing really inherently wrong with those, but also not much to talk about. hopefully that will change with their recent studio acquisitions, but as of now, they dont have a lot that appeals to our kind of audience.

dS is in a strange middle ground for gaming. its populated by hardcore gamers, but ones who are all ages. youll see everything from kids to parents on this site, with the majority being teens or young adults. even though this is a spyro site, i think the skylanders series and reignited trilogy brought people from the more family friendly and cheaper nintendo crowds. xboxes and playstations are expensive compared to the switch, let alone the 3DS, so i think the wider appeal of these consoles might play a part in why theyre so much more popular on the site.

TL;DR: nintendy cheap and for everyone, sony and xbox spency

People on this site talk about video games? I thought this site was about sexual orientation. (Not going to pretend I know what that means.)

While I understand what you're getting at, I'd like to point out that the Switch is the same price as the PlayStation 4 Slim and Xbox One S. I'm not surprised by the lack of interest in the latter, however.

(The Wii U wasn't cheap either, though we don't talk about that one shhh)

true, but theres also the cheaper rumored revisions and the 3DS.

im not surprised in lack of xbox interest either, but it also does seem like the people who talk about playstation only talk about the older stuff.

I'll be completely honest with you, I don't think that the rumored "cheaper" revision of the Switch is going to be that much cheaper, especially since the only thing I've heard about it is supposedly the removal of HD Rumble in the Joy-Cons.
There's also supposedly going to be a "stronger" model too, which will likely cost more rather than less.

I suppose you've got me with the 3DS, but it's essentially on its way out at this point.

I thought that feature was always there? I recall always being able to do that. Granted my memory isn’t fantastic and your definition of relatively recently may differ from mine but still.

I'll probably get into some hot water for this, but I'm honestly fed up at this point. :/ (And I don't really have any other means of reaching out to this person)

Anytime Drawdler posts anything these days:
[User Posted Image]

Seriously, you're overly critical to the point of being both annoying and depressing. Don't give me that "BUT I'M NOT!" BS either because I know that numerous other people have the same problem with you.
I don't even know if I can agree with you on anything either because your posts are always a rambling mess of nothing, and usually they're pretentious and ridiculous anyways so I don't really bother to read them to begin with.

It sucks too because I remember when you didn't used to be like this and it was easy to have a decent conversation with you, but now seeing your posts makes me groan more than anything.
The fact that you're seemingly letting yourself go and are content with that is unsettling enough, but I'm not sure how much sympathy I can feel for a person who's fine with getting worse and blaming other people for their faults.

I'd tell you all of this in person, but both your GB and PM Inbox are locked despite the fact that you said you were leaving in the former. :/
I don't really want you to leave either, as I'd rather see improvement on your end, but your presence at this point is getting increasingly unwelcome in my eyes.

To be fair, I don't think there's necessarily any "mob mentality" going on here since I'm the only one to my knowledge that's openly expressed my issues with her in public.
I'm not really trying to start an argument either, just voicing my displeasure with her behavior and mentality.

I do feel that my wording could be improved a bit, as I came off more passive-aggressive and frustrated than I had intended to (I had essentially just woken up when I had made that post), but I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing so unfortunately.
But as I said, I don't have any means to reach out to her otherwise, and obviously not saying anything isn't really healthy nor productive either, so I'm kind of out of options either way. *shrug* I get what you're saying, though.

I also don't want this to be seen as another "OMG SESS IS RUNNING SOMEONE OFF OF THE SITE AGAIN" situation.
Rather all I'm really asking for is some form of improvement and self-reflection from the person in question, instead of the sheer denial and continuation of otherwise disagreeable behavior and mentality that's been going on for some time now.

Yeah, it's mostly since other people might take that as a chance to voice their concerns. Wanting to help is one thing but just be careful with how much has to be said.

and I mean yeah, I really want to go out and say that it feels like Drawdler is forcing herself to hate things to not be as attached to the point of visibly changing her viewpoint in the middle of a post to say X was never good, but it's been years since that's started and we can't really help with it because she never replies.

I’m hesitant to fall into the Persona hole. I’m not a huge fan of turn based combat but the aesthetic and characters of the games seem cool and i love the art style. I don’t know if I have to time and money to spend on the games and the hours to play all the games I can get my hands on if i were to get into the series. Because I can’t just play one, I’d want to play 4 and 3 and Q and maybe even the dancing games.

Also this is kind of dumb i know, but i’m afraid of liking all the characters and wanting to buy figures of them all :|| and that’s so much money holy god


This is what happened with Fate and like i’m not upset i got into fate, but it’s definitely a lot to take in and understand.

Does this sound stupid lol?

Understandable. I'm very hesitant to get into new anime series or pick up any new RPGs because of the commitment they require.

It's not the kind of game where you MUST play all though. It's not called semi-VN for nothing. You can engage with the characters just as much by watching let's plays as you can with the console, because they're mostly so easy to identify with.
