More and more I've really started to appreciate the Tumblr mentality of simply blocking out toxic people. I think a lot of us there realize that it's not about ignoring criticism entirely, it's about disregarding those who could not bring a constructive word to the table if their life depended on it. In other words, a type of person who is extremely prevalent on 4chan. There are certainly people who can say something you disagree with without being a dick about it, and so you can actually have a good discussion with them. I've found a good number of people like that on Reddit. It's just that a large chunk of a lot of communities are absolutely horrible people, and said people have no self-awareness so they get confused when people don't want to deal with their toxicity and think, "Ooh, I hate those people! It's just a hugbox and nobody's allowed to disagree with them!"
I agree with everything you said except for the part about Reddit. Not memeing or anything, but Reddit is full of the most vile and disgusting people I've met. I really hate the site culture, also upvote/downvote system is terrible for discussion. But yes, trying to reason with toxic people is pointless, or at least on some boards. I like /qa/, /wsr/, /r9k/ and /co/. /pol/ is a hugbox/safe space for racists and white supremacists. Say anything they don't like and be bombarded with replies like "Fuck off kike/(sand)nigger/libtard/cuck. I also like Tumblr.
>the Tumblr mentality of simply blocking out toxic people.
But they dont do this.
They actively seek out "toxic" people and then complain about them.
If they didnt they wouldnt be coming to 4chan in the first place.
What specifically did you not like?
I honestly want to know, I almost never see someone explain past "it's reddit/tumblr"
I don't mean this in a stand-offy way either or that I'm surprised people didn't like it, I just rarely get this chance to see
The proof is /qa/ you stupid fuck.
Cant go a day without you faggots whining about /pol/ or how people are telling you to fuck off back to Tumblr or Reddit.
the characters felt very forced to me, as did the humor
the puzzles usually served as a joke delivery system
the rpg elements were window dressing dressing for the narrative, had almost no effect on gameplay
90% of the game was walking through hallways and interacting with the characters, if you didn't like the characters you won't like the game.
i felt it put narrative over fun, and didn't really enjoy that, was only really engaged during the boss battles(and asriel was fucking stupid, power of friendship shounen anime tier bullshit)
Sorry, >>409140 isn't me (the guy you were replying to)
And those are valid gripes, the game is essentially all story rather than gameplay and if you don't like the story there's little reason to like the game, save for art or music
For Asriel, I agree, but it sorta makes sense considering it is essentially an edgy kid's oc and that's how Asriel made that form.
i really liked the music, dislike a lot of the art that the game produces because it reeks of furshit.
did find some japanese artist's rendition of sans and undyne that I really liked. the music was really good too, i'll admit I shamelessly bump that shit in my car.
I'm sorry you're such a sensitive snowflake that you perceive someone calling you a sad and bitter person on fucking 4chan as an insult.
I could've called you a fucking moronic retard of colossal proportions, that'd be an insult and ad-hominem, but I didn't.
that's your opinion man, skyrim sucks too.
video games were a mistake.
>muh goty 11/10
>le video games are shit
You can go watch house of cards or other netflix shit then, I'm not stopping you
>Undertale faggots still wonder why nobody likes them
Nobody's wondering anything like that. We know that the reason you don't like us is the same reason you dislike anything else. We're not special. You decided to dislike us first and then came up with the justifications afterwards. It's fine.
Fifth time I've seen this post. Onto the filter it goes.
This is a pretty unexpected use of that meme.
You don't have to build safespaces and hugboxes to keep out toxicity. Just ignore them. Unless it's constructive criticism, in which case you should read it and then disregard it anyway.
I think you've misunderstood the concept of safespaces somewhere along the line. Ignoring someone is literally the same thing. "Safe space" just gave a new name to it. If you want to know why we use different names for the same thing, it's because of the psychological effect. A catchy name draws more attention to the idea and makes people more likely to put it into practice.
One pretty helpful thing that Undertale encouraged for me is gender awareness. I used to not think about it so much but now I make sure to just say "they" if someone's gender is uncertain. I think it's a good habit to get in because not everyone in the world is male.
