How do you guys enjoy your touhou? Is there some secret I'm missing?
Do you curl up beside a warm evening fire, tea next to leg, and play on your laptop? Do you read manga late into the night while drinking hard liquor, wishing you could live with your waifu? Do you watch the anime while working out?
I must know!
I listen to the games' soundtracks most of the time. I don't play the games often and have only beat PCB on normal because I haven't applied myself to beating the games more.
You play play the games alone in a cold, dark room, and savor the pain and suffering that come with endlessly facing a challenge you know deep down you'll never overcome, yet keep coming back to time and time again.
Well, that's how I do it anyway.
I almost always play in my bed with a laptop, sometimes i drink green tea between rounds.

This plus jazz arranges. It's pretty cosy.
There are quite a few, depending on how picky you are; in fact, there's a torrent on Nyaa specifically for jazz arranges. One of my personal favorites is Touhou Bakuon Jazz 4, by the Tokyo Active NEETs. There are also Shibayan's Bossa Nova albums, if you're looking for something more chill and cozy.
I play on easy mode every now and again just to watch myself fail and have a strange kind of violent panic attack relating to my strong sense of inferiority. But that happens to me with a lot of different things so it doesn't matter.
I draw or animate my waifu in MMD, scan, edit or typeset her doujinshi, and just sleep comfortably with my daki of her. Used to listen to lots of Touhou music but havent really downloaded anything new in a long time that interested me.
I play the games for a few hours when it's morning, but most of the time end up raging and going back to sleep.
I read manga in the middle of the night under my blanket while curling up to my daki, listening to rain ambient and a fan heater. Comfiest nights ever.

I play the games until failure after failure fills me with hatred and self-doubt and then I find a 2hu-themed doujin to fap to and eventually the process repeats.
The secret to enjoying touhou is hating yourself.
I don't think I'll ever tire of bkub, either
It is not a delusion if you truly believe in it with all your brain, heart, and soul! Follow your dreams!
I´m trying to listen to the entire touhou music collection, delete the sub-bar groups, and classify it by genre/mood if possible. Which will take me around 100 days of listening at the very least
