Time for a proper #introduction!
Hi, I'm Phil. I'm 25, and live alone in the middle of nowhere in Poland (which in itself is a middle of nowhere).
I play a variety of games, though recently metroidvanias (Bloodstained hype) and platformers (CELESTE.) have dominated. Plus whatever comes out on Switch.
My timesink genres are fighting games (Guilty Gear) and Monster Hunter (my all-time favourite).
And I play FFXIV, so there's that.
Other than that, I like cycling. And wall climbing.
i've attended presentations at my company that start with "[company name] gets a shitload of excel spreadsheets emailed to it every day, and it has to process those correctly."
I went outside and met people, oops, also a bit of introspective wall of text so idk
anyway, I went to a boardgames meet up. Was told there were gonna be three people + me, but I forgot that I live in the sticks so that translates to "three families + me"
we played in one of their houses, while their respective SOs had a party with the kids in the other house. Overall, quite patriarchal.
I haven't been in such a... normie situation for a long time, so I kinda just confusedly went along with it.
I guess nobody is worried about the whole waves hands at everything? But I'm probably gonna stay inside for two weeks now.
Anyway yeah, witnessing family interactions & stuff again after such a long time was pretty enlightening. Seeing the fathers take breaks to go do stuff with or for their kids was cute. The energy of multiple families kinda just sharing kids was neat.
And imagining myself in something like that made me realize that I fucking hate the idea of it. I don't miss it, and it doesn't feel like a defensive overreaction, either. I simply am a loner, or at least i feel like that's the best state of being for me given how I am (ie ND).
But it is nice to go, like. Just visit that world for a few hours every now and then. Remind me why people like it & why I don't.
Also they have a dog and a cat
might go again in the future
so that's the background to the toot just then
Alright, let's play a game.

I play a lot of video games, and occasionally I code things (usually for a living). [he/him]
