Anyone else have a childhood vidya friend?
>playing crash team racing till 1 am
>eating pizza dinner and still talking about vidya
>walking to and from school sharing zelda secrets
We'd have sleepovers, rent psones, n64 and use the computer because snes was outdated as fuck. We'd also buy sliced hot dogs and fries with lots of mayoneise. We were a bunch though like 3 or 4. Also this >>255479608.
I remember I liked a lot of girls back then but now they look hideous.
>have awesome friend with a huge house
>had his own massive room
>beanbag chairs, computer, N64 and his own TV
>had an in-ground pool
>always had sleepovers
>grew up, 8th grade or so
>he turns into athletic sportsfag
>I turn into fat shut-in
>he gets different friends
>I lose friends
>haven't spoken to him since
I've never had one: I've always played alone. Not even online friends.
I'm that silent guy that fills the empty seat in the squad and makes it to MVP without talking or replying to praises.
I've come to accept it and enjoy it.
>Used to have him round for MK64 tournaments, moved on to Smash Bros/Melee play offs (best in school at the time, had a Gamecube in our schools rec room) and shit like that
>Other friend, who's always been a two faced prick, starts being a dick, stop hanging out with him
>Good friend starts hanging out with his cousin who's in with the "cool" kids
>Still wants to play games/yugioh cards and shit, but only in secret
>Friendship continues until 2006
>Get fed up of his attitude, stop hanging out with him
>Starts hanging out with bad friend, I move on to another group of friends, go through all the usual teenage stuff
>Last seen good friend in 2012, he's a manager in some discount store, looks like a mini-hulk because he hit the gym hard when his high school gf left him and he's started going bald
>Doesn't even attempt to make conversation
>Bad friend is now going by Elaine, allegedly on a waiting list to have his dick turned in to a vagina
>Rumours suggesting bad friend and good friend are in a relationship
Man...I used to play Smash with you guys
you should reach out to him, being a "sportsfag" isnt a bad thing, he just wanted more friends while doing an activity he enjoyed you might even be able to get in shape and turn your social life around
>Cooping with a stranger
>Don't exange a word
>Beat the level without breaking a sweat
>As you're about to leave, never to see him again, he gestures at you in-game to wish you farewell
It's moments like this that keep me coming back man.
Had. He grew into a swagfag douchebag around highschool and we grew apart. Suppose it was bound to happen with his family having a lot of excess cash.
I don't really keep friends now as an adult.
>dad worked in organized crime
>mom was a golddigger/trophyslut

>never managed to stay in touch with anyoine
>Eventually stop trying to befriend people since I will move anyway
>mfw I'm 28 and don't have a single friend because I grew up to be a loner
Not even kinda. He was always a large, clunky guy, like 6.2 or something and clumsy as fuck. Now, he's been on hormones since I last had a conversation with him when he was 22 in 2011 which he started early in the year, and before he started growing his hair out. He was balding pretty bad at 22 but the hormones seem to be regrowing his hair, which was limp and white. Looked fucking strange.
"She's" got a full on square jaw, massive forehead, long ass purple dyed hair, tiny tits, and jumbo thighs. Weirdest looking person I've seen personally, tbh. Everything about her just looks...off.
>Use to go to wake up early in the morning to go to his house before school and play Soul Calibur
>We would stay at eachothers houses and take an xbox wherever we went so as to play TimeSplitters with our custom maps. Team Buddies was in there too.
>Remember playing Warcraft 3 on a shitheap laptop with him and his brothers and a a few friends, we found a DotA overhaul that had Naruto characters as the heroes with their own respective skills and models.
>Stayed around at his house and sat through the entirety of him playing LoZ Windwaker.
I feel somewhat sorry for this generation, the "online" of games actually really distances you from people.
Other than a couple of people I talk with on steam/IRC the only thing that resembled an actual friendship was with my gf before we started dating.
And then we broke up 6 years ago.
Fuck people. Fuck human beings in general.
One Childhood friend I haven't hung out with for years, but I bumped into him a few times last spring.
Another childhood friend
committed suicide last October.
I still hang out with high school friends to this day, but they don't qualify for "childhood" friends.
The people who will be your closest friends are more likely to NOT be your friends from childhood. It's not always the case, but I see it this way.
All of my friends that were into vidya gave it up in their earlier twenties, or when they finished college.
Within 2-3 years after that all of them got into serious relationships, which all fell apart making them all miserable and far worse financially then they ever could of imagined.
During the first half of all that, my friends said how I should stop playing vidya and tie a knot with some girl.
Now they all say how lucky/smart I was, and how they just fucked themselves for the next 5+ years with mass debt.
>My brother and I playing countless hours of Morrowind

Good times. Too bad he was older than me and decided to beat most of our games when I wasn't there and not allow me to play them
>Let me borrow Super Smash Bros
>We watched Mario flash animations together all the time at school, he fucking loved Luigi

He probably ended up here just like me, hopefully one day he'll see this

The times, nor your age, have nothing to do with the act of sharing the goods. Get better friends if they don't still do things like that.
Yep, met him in grade school, I over heard him talking about Legend of Dragoon so I asked him out of the blue if he knew where Kongols DS was.
After that we found we both had a real passion for the things we played and soon became good friends.
Now it's been over 11 years or so and we're roommates even. Funny to think how I met my most trusted friend because of video games. That's why LOD will always have special place with me, it got me a brother.
Post more childhood stories about friends that happen to be girls.
I'm a sucker for platonic shit like that.
Close enough to perfect either way. My collection of gay porn reaction images doesn't even seem to bother her.

Fuck, am I your friend? I've lent out drives full of porn multiple times, with everything except actual illegal stuff because fuck going to prison just to fap, man.
Name's not Mike, though/
I see, unfortunately I had the opposite of one. She was a childhood friend but that was short lived as I grew to dislike her.
She taught me what backstabbing was at a young age and she was a sleep around so I just ended up being repulsed by her.
No fembro for me.
Same thing here, anon.

I was friends with a girl until I was 10, she was my best friend but then I asked her to stand on my face, she did it but we never talked after.
She was a cute little Hawaiian girl

I dont even know.
he was a neighbor to me since i was about 2 years old
grew up playing n64 and gamecube together
he moved out a couple of years ago, and i did last year too
we don't see eachother that much now

If you're out there Zach I miss you buddy
Used to have neighbors across the street that had the best basement, would play vidya all the time at their house. Lots of Dynasty Warriors and other PS2 games. They moved away 8 years ago or so. Alec and Brad, I hope you guys are having fun out there.
>friend shows me street fighter
>have no idea what it is or how to play
>wants to always play it at his house and never tells me how to do specials or single projectiles
>passes me manual " I won't tell you,read it"
>manual only talks about which buttons do what
And to this day I've never played another fighting game other than SF Alpha because of how salty my friend made me when we were kids
No, I had and still have three friends since i was 13 years old. None of them are interested in videogames though, one likes cooking, one's a musical prodigy and one is really into model planes and goes to the gym a lot.
I'm so fucking jealous of them, but I still love them
not sure I wasn't interested in stuff like that as a kid but I remember we needed to get something out of my closet and it was kinda too high so I just said hey you should stand on me to reach it. So I laid down and she just stepped on my face with her bare feet. I don't have a foot fetish or am attracted to feet at all so I'm not really sure why I did that.

It's my fault, and now I have nothing. High school's over and I have nobody. Vidya doesn't fill that gap anymore.
I'm sorry Austin.

Still, kinda miss the guy and it's a bit upsetting to look back on sometimes. People can say what they like about weed, how harmless it is and shit like that. But I've lost a few good friends now to weed, all they want to do is smoke it and eat some pizza. It's not my thing, I have an addictive personality (currently completely hooked on coffee, 10-14 cups a day) and I cant afford to get addicted, timewise and monetarily.
>mfw I looked it up and its an actual thing
Thanks for that.
Look at it from Austin's perspective.
He probably thought, "I guess he's not a true friend since he'd rather hang out with different kids. I will move on."
He probably didn't want to go full "battered wife" beta when you tried to reconnect. He might have even thought that you were having troubles with your "cool" friends and didn't want to associate with someone he perceived as shallow...maybe.

I'm not allowed to have friends. Life has a funny way of taking them.
pls respond anon I've seriously been looking for this nigga for years now
Same with the Jehovah's Witness Tyler who lived in my old neighborhood and broke my window with a baseball and couldn't pay it back because his dad suddenly died
I bet he's here too
Maybe I'm remembering it wrong. I tried to talk to him a few times, and he did talk a bit, but it never went anywhere.
I wouldn't be surprised if he felt like that. I was the faggot.

I wish people would stop supporting this kind of fucking shit. People who want to be the opposite gender suffer mental conditions. One of my best friends recently (as in the past two years) decided he wanted to become a woman. I've always known something was seriously wrong with him. He would talk about loving blood and jacking off to guro porn. Not to mention his parents are literally retarded. Functional, but they are off quite a bit. He also demanded that I call him a "she" when I straight up told him no. He's not a fucking woman. He's a man and he will always be a fucking man.
Having a shitty neurological condition causing you misery for most of your life often creates mental problems, but it doesn't mean all people who have it are mentally ill
It sounds like that nigga was never your best friend in the first place
this, dont stop pursuing her you fucking faggot.
Ask her again and tell hr you dont care about the other guy or w/e
>mfw it happened months ago and shes now pregnant with chads kid.
I still have a group of 5people who we all still lan game and stay over at each other houses drinking and playing games all night Its just good fun
Because the shit hurts, anon. Also, you really have no way of knowing that fat-ass was the only one who liked you, girls are crazy protective of revealing their crushes, and as I've come to know over the last year or so, qt wasn't the only one.
Asking her out, however, was incredibly therapeutic for me in that, literally seconds after it happened, I realized how piss-easy it is to just toss your confession out there and see what happens. Since then I've become considerably more brave and my chances with women has improved drastically. tl;dr, if there's a girl you like, get on your phone/facebook/whatever, and ask her out to dinner and to consider it a date right now
Nope. I put my cards on the table. It's her turn and it's going to stay that way

I was kind of a shit to him sometimes
I was a shitty kid to a lot of people thank god that's overbut he was a good friend and I have not the faintest idea of what happened to him and probably wouldn't recognize him if we crossed paths, it has happened before with other people from my past oddly enough most seem to recognize me and tell me I haven't changed at all.
i hope it's real. kids act too fucking gay these days. what's even worse is that the bullies turned to psychological bullying. beating someone would be better for both parties

My whole circle of friends completely erodes and gets replaced by a new one every 5 years or so. I honestly like it that way.
>girl who played games a lot and was massive Nintendo fan

>played frequently and traded shit

Never seen her since. I wonder how she is doing actually.
Besides that random LAN parties and sleepovers with some friends between 3rd and 5th grade. Then it stopped because games were kid stuff and they were too cool being edgy trendsetters and all that shit.
I literally have no friends anymore.
When I was younger I never had many, but I had some. It just depleted and depleted. When I was 14 it turned into 0 friends.
I'm 18 now and still no friends.
As kids and - later - teenagers we used to write scores in Capcom fighting games.
>X-Men: CotA: I scored 421 wins against 399 loses
>MSHvSF: 322 to 301
>MvC1: 2575 to 2665
And then my brother had to move away. Fast forward several years and I finally bought X360 with UMvC3. Now the score is:
>32 to 36
>had a childhood friend
>had a high school rush and even fucked her
>Got that awkward first experience when I was 10
>years later am a jobless, almost friendless NEET /v/irgin
I don't know what happened. I just got more and more spaghetti as the years went on to the point that I can't even get a measly part time job, let alone friends.

>tfw i used to be normal enough at the beginning of the year
When I say ''Metal Gear Solid of the group''
I'm the weird kid that is only there because I entertain at times. (article: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/video-games/columns/extra-punctuation/11330-Ground-Zeroes-is-Only-Worth-What-Youll-Pay-For-It)
And if you're too fucking lazy to read that, I'm particularly referencing this portion.
Metal Gear is like the weird kid who hangs around with your circle of schoolfriends and is tolerated because he does entertaining things, like the time he punted a sleepy bullfrog into the girl's changing rooms. At other times, though, he might claim to have transformed into a velociraptor, or spend an entire lunch hour explaining that Star Wars doesn't actually have any plot holes if you pay attention to the expanded universe, and in these cases everyone just smiles and nods and makes a circular gesture with their finger near the side of their head.
it really doesnt if you are willing to communicate, I know waxing nostalgic is huge on /v/ but if you use a mic at all and arent the worst human being on earth, youll meet some cool people online

My cousin was this friend up until we were maybe 16-17. After that he was way more interested in girls. We still bro'd it up from time to time, then after he met his fiancée quite a few years later we pretty much grew apart.

I have to go to a gig on the 17th of August because my friends told me to.. Personally, I never listened to the band but my best friend is lead singer in one of the bands that's playing..
There's gonna be moshpits and shit and I'm afraid I'll spergle my spaghetti everywhere and act retarded or something.
>Having a shitty neurological condition causing you misery for most of your life often creates mental problems, but it doesn't mean all people who have it are mentally ill
>Having a shitty neurological condition causing you misery
You opened that saying that they do have mental conditions.
>but it doesn't mean all people who have it are mentally ill
So not all people who are mentally ill, are mentally ill?
You need to re-type what you wrote. It makes no sense.
yeah i didn't read your other post until after i posted that. point still stand, get in that shit bro, go and deck her boyfriend or some shit.
prove you're a goddamn man
do it or you're a triple nigger
also nice trips
I used to. We used to play Smash and Pokemon Stadium and Mario Party all the time. Then I moved away and we saw each other less and less. Playing Smash alone or online just isn't the same as playing with other people.
Yep, that's the worst part, feeling you "have to go" I've never been to a gig, so I wouldn't know what to tell you, do what your friends do I guess, cheer for your buddy, and be safe.
I'm guessing you're trolling, but going getting into a fight with a girl's bf because you want her is the height of retardation. Like I said, I made a fool of myself, got hurt, moved on, and am starting a well-paying job within the month. That's as satisfying conclusion as I can imagine to the situation.
THIS, is the true thread theme.
Find something better and more fitting.
Think of all the good times you had with your vidyabros Anons, cherish those memories, your bros may be gone but your memories will never leave you. ;-;

I'm so sorry. I'm so fucking sorry. I'm such a shitty friend, and you deserve better.
Still got em.
Sure the magic toned down thanks to becoming boring adults, but I still got em.

Last weekend I was at a friend's apartment and we spent the entire day up to 4 A.M playing Online Third Strike. shit was cash.
Aww....this thread is touching
Not vidya but I had a friend that I used to play with a lot when I was 5 or around that age. She was the daughter of my father's friend. We moved and I hadn't seen her for like 15 years. Saw her again a few years ago at a family dinner. She was lookin' pretty cute. She seems to like anime too(I'm a weeb). But it was too awkward between us. I didn't know where to start so we pretty much avoided eye contact and didn't talk.
I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was 12.
Jesus, does anyone?

You should drop this misconception that living someone else's lifestyle make you more happy.
There is a reason you choose videogames over lifting, you simply forgot about it.
The trick is to stop mourning what you could never accomplish, stop desiring everything you missed and enjoy what you have today, even if it's very little, it's the first step.
Many people who party and lift are miserable inside. Happiness is not an aesthetics, it's a perception.

One of my fondest memories of the guy: we once set up two tv's next to each other and played through Castlevania: Symphony of the night, I'm on the playstation version, he was on the saturn version. Spent the day noting the differences.
I miss that fucker so much
go find him anon, your story is not over
Apologize, repent, try to be his friend and move on with your life
you can't stop the earthquake in retrospect but you can remedy the aftershock
On which basis do you make this claim.
I party and I lifted and I hung out with people like that and some of them, aside from partying and lifting, have terrible spending habits, making them dirt poor, some of them feel "incomplete" because they can fuck any chick they want, but can never maintain a meaningful relationship.
Your problem is that you look at things on their surface and you refuse to delve deeper.
POeople who party and lift are not a different race of people, they are human beings like you and they have problems that makes them miserable just like you.
As for me, all that lifting did for me is lead me to injuries because I lifted like a retard for many years and partying, aside from a very few selective good memories, gave me liver problems.
It ain't all pink and pretty.

tfw they aren't my actual cousins, cousin 1 is the son of the cousin of my dad he is like my 2nd cousin or something, and cousin 2 is the son of my dad's best friend. And even being that way i love them more than any of my other blood-related cousins.
Of course. We were always on the same team when our parents would enroll us in soccer or baseball. Every Saturday before a game we would have a sleep over playing video games, eating junk food and watching cheesy movies.
He's currently in the Navy with a wife and I'm still in college getting ready for Med school.
When I was 11 I met my best friend and we'd play games day and night for a while. Nowadays we don't have time for games together (busy schedules and we live far apart) but we still discuss them regularly and we're still close friends, so I'm more than okay with it. I think I'm gonna buy one of those remasters and invite her over to play again next month...

Some of my fondest memories are from video games anon(s). Thank you for this nostalgia post.
california here. i know many people like this. they lift and/or party BECAUSE they are miserable or feel incomplete. hell, some guys i know started lifting to get over their insecurities and introvertedness. what was is the result? a big, buff, introverted guy who still can't hold normal conversations, so they hang out with other introverts that work out -- and the result of that is a bunch of buff guys hanging out together. some people think they are gay

hell, part of me thinks I somehow missed out. I didnt even have a single hardcore gay sleep over between the ages of 8-13. Did I somehow fuck up by doing everything right?
Reminds me of the saddest thing Ive seen

I wish I knew.
You have no idea how much I want to. But I now have enough experience that I know I'm unable to maintain long term friendships. I can't do it. I tried with several people, fantastic friends, but it always ends this way. And it's always my fault.
He is a good guy. He will be successful at his job, and will have a good life.
And in all honesty, the same is probably true for me as well. But if I tried, and the friendship was still there, this time it could ruin us both. So it's better this way.
I've literally been crying since this post. Who the fuck knew /v/ could elicit these kinds of feels out of me.
>>best friends since diapers
>>play games, watch shit together
>>mmo comes out, lose them to e-friends, shake my head that their so stupid not hanging out with their real friends
>>life moves on, still see them regularly and play games
>>as mmo dies they realize the emptiness of what their doing
>>they start wanting to come over more, we play mk8
>>have a riot, just like we were young
Sometimes you have to be patient with the people in your life.
>high school crush
Shit is gay anyway, people are fucking sociopaths in High School and if you had a crush and were a thing she'd probably talk shit on you behind your back after you break up.
The only parties that I enjoy are parties where I am with close friends.
I went to a Punk Rock club with a bunch of old friends that I know very well and am comfortable with, including a few introverted anti-social types and we had so much fun together with the great chemistry that we ended up dancing, even if we sucked, but we had a great time and I started hitting it off with one of my awkward girl friend in the group. Going out is best when you go out with actual friend.
Otherwise, I went with workmates a bunch of times in all my previous jobs, I went in huge open house parties where I knew one person, it all sucked because I just couldn't connect with anyone, I'm not a chameleon type at all. I can't blend with people I don't know.
So that's what I've been saying about looking on the surface level only. On the surface, parties have this image of great fun and debauchery where everyone has crazy fun, but it's not the case for everybody and there are types of parties and environment for everybody.
This is why most people who never went to the typical boom boom club end up dissapointed by the experience because they pictured these as THE parties when it might just be a matter of you going to the wrong places or with the wrong people.
>The only parties that I enjoy are parties where I am with close friends
well, parties -- as in those typical house parties -- usually have friends of friends of friends inviting their friends.
nope, she even said I was her type quite recently after I told her I kissed another friend of mine but I dunno, our friendship isn't like that. Maybe if I weren't so happy with my boyfriend hahaha
Its in the hours after you snort a lot of cocaine and you're all by yourself crying in your trashed house when all your friends are gone and the only people who care about you are dead, remembering the old times and how different everything could have been. Just order another hooker for the evening, and you'll be fine today.
Yeah, we used to play Smash bros all weekend every weekend and watch shitty tv but it was awesome. I'm still friends with him but he's an asshole now and neither of us play vidya anymore

Here's to ya, you 80s action film nut bastard.
Stop freaking out over what you don't have
Realize that you're probably not that bad
Be content with what you have right now, no matter how little it is.
Keep busy, boredom creates loneliness which leads to depression
Try to be optimist even in the worst
Accept to live your emotions
Try to interact with people even if you have an hard time
Women are people, dating is a glorified friendship with sex, you can live without em. Most of your desire is hormonal and instinctive anyways, it hardly comes from the heart.
One day, maybe, you'll get a chance at this glorified friendship thing with sex.
For now, just work on yourself, acknowledge flaws and fears and overcome them
Don't take things for granted.
Don't have too many expectations
Accept things as they are if you can't change them, no matter how much they suck.
Acknowledge your limits.
Those are all the ways I do it to stay as content as I can and It's never easy. My point is we all have our own little something and that you should focus on that if you feel like you have nothing. don't focus on the vast hole of everything you don't have and at least cherish the little plate of something you've got and start from there.
I don't intend to give you advice or anything, as I said, what works for me might not work for you. I'm just trying to show you that if a guy like me who is filled with insecurities and with a heart so patched that there's little of the original even left can have an optimist attitude by just changing my perception of things, then anyone can start from somehwere and work their way up even if it'S tough and cruel sometimes.

usually sharing porn with friends when you're older is kind of weird, but if you have a strong enough relationship or have been doing it for a while it's not that bad
Communication and memory. I've gotten better from when I was younger when I could only mumble but I still have issues communicating through speech and hands. I fuck up a lot and have to ask people to be patient with me when it's really bad but I try to get by. Filling out forms are the absolute worst for me and I have to get help with them regularly.
talking with my bro on skype has helped a LOT. I speak more clearly now than I ever had before.

Sometimes I feel that I don't deserve friendship, or that it's only meant to other people.
I can guess that other guys here have felt like this as well, so...
Anon, be happy, okay? I'm sure that you're a great person, and I love you.

Too much this. When it happens, in my head I keep thinking "Is this guy serious? Hes just trolling me, right? What does he want from me?" and I back out of that hard as I can.

And everyone told me life was better when you're out of high school.
Yeah I did. This was back when I was still in middle school and he was in 11th grade.
We used to play a lot of MVC2 and Melee but then he got a girlfriend and stopped hanging out with me...

We still hang out a lot
The only problem is he hasn't played a lot of old games, so when I start talking about old games, he doesn't know what I'm talking about
28 here too. One friend I'm losing contact with because he picked up a girlfriend and a drug habit and is now living on his fishing boat. Another friend is likely getting evicted and will have to move at least 2 hours away. Another friend is a crazy woman who just married fucking Patrick Bateman. Last friend lives in another state and I see him about once every couple years.
But all my childhood vidya friends have long since disappeared out of my life.
At least I'll always have 4chan.
I push them away because I'm an asshole and no one should have to deal with that. I bragged way too much about how good I was at video games and I was a cocky jackass that hated losing as a kid. I'm surprised my friend stuck with me until I moved away.
That's how my first fap went, although alone, I remember being kinda scared when I came, praying and shit, hoping my family didn't come back that moment... I was pretty late to the party too, like 14, I dunno what's the standard so whatever.
And I hope I never did this but I used to watch softcore on other channels with my brother... passing it off as laughing at the plots, nothing incestuous/gay tough.
you are a wise person, however, to be able to acknowledge and accept your own flaws, but I'm sure they stuck around because you had other qualities that you might not be aware of.
I used to, but not anymore.

Those old times were golden, they truly were. On the other hand, though, I ended up with a fantastic girl who I play tons of vidya with. Live together, play tons of multiplayer/MMOs, etc. The sex is fucking fantastic, too
>learn some instrument in band
You can still learn an instrument, the band thing is more complicated though. I play alot of guitar and I haven't ever even been in a band, I just like to record shit. I guess you could try something like craigslist to recruit people if you really wanted to.
Anons, what would happen if you died right now?
What would the consequences be? What would you leave behind? How would you be remembered? What kind of digital footprint would you leave in your wake? Would anyone be able to access your computer? What would they find?
What would happen to your games?
Personally, I don't push anyone away, in my case, I've just have an extremely hard time connecting with people.
Thank God I already have friends because everytime I meet someone and we start hanging out, eventually, I lose all desires to call them to do anything and the mere thought of being with them start feeling tedious.
And the thing is that they're, usually, not even bad people, most of the time, they'Re really good people who think I'm cool and they wanna hang out with me because I'm fun to be around, but I'm just not looking to make new friends so I end up indirectly rejecting them all eventually.
The same thing happens to girls. I think I'm just way tooo attached to the friends I have right now which makes it impossible for me to want to make any new ones. I dunno, I might be autistic.
I have one megabro that I've known for about 15 years, started with trading ps1 games, up to ps2 and played ffxi for years. We sort of got tied up in real life about 3 years ago (he got married) and I am sort of between careers and too embarrassed to talk to him. help
We were both kids, so that kind of thing wasn't so bad. It was kind of expected. He was the kind of guy that bragged a lot too, and we'd play Tony Hawk and try to one up each other. In the end I didn't grow out of it, it's easy for me to get caught up in the heat of competition.
Consequences would be parents finding the
socksthat I bought stashed away. No digital footprint, I'm forgettable. Only trouble would be I'm GM of an MMO guild, so they'd probably worry until an officer takes my position from inactivity.
My friends would probably keep my vidya and distribute it amongst tehmselves. My mom would probably keep a console or two as a memento of sort I guess.
The same would happen with all of my material possessions, redistributed or sold off.
On my computer, they'd find my image/comics folder with pretty much nothing controversial because there's nothing in there that wouldn't make my friends laugh or, at the very worst, be indifferent/don't understand
My Emulators and ROMS and other PC games
I have no porn on my computer, I keep absolutely none. I find I don't need to save porn as I can always browse to find what I want to watch. So nobody shall ever know what kind of website I watch.
I clean my computer every day, so there won't even be a browsing history.
Friends and family alike would mourn, it would be a terrible loss for them, but they'll get my shit and remember me as they knew me. No bullshit futa loli scat porn to ruin my reputation.
And even if they found out, I'd be dead, I won't give a shit, then.
Would leave abunch of shitty vidya behind, no digital footprint since almost no-one besides my friends know my usernames. People would find my reaction images but nothing horrible.
me too. too bad its not full length; this is exactly what i want more of.

All my good friends grew out of having fun and playing games, turns out having tons of bills/kids/pressure at 23 is where it's at. Only have one person left who i consider a friend and we basically only communicate through steam so he might as well not exist. What really sucks is I used to have no problem making friends in online games but as the years went on I find it impossible. Kinda blows but what can you do?
My best friend from highschool.
>used to go to his place every friday after school

Its actually pretty sad everytime I remember him.
I consider every man in this thread as my bro. Except for that trannie nigga. Homie don't play that gay shit.
NNID: Spade64 if any of you gents care about that shit. I sure hope you folks have the Mon Hun.

God damn I wish I could take on this advice. Back in secondry school I never bothered with my apearance, grades, friends, social life and never tried getting a gf all because I wanted to appear apathetic because that was what seemed cool to me at the time.
Now I just want to go back and re-do it, go back and tell myself not to be such an apathetic little shit because it's completely fucked my social life.
I'm 22 now and moving away to start uni and hopefully not be such an apathetic shit and get friends
and maybe a gf
>What would the consequences be?
Muh family would be a little sad, I guess
My vidya collection, coputer
>How would you be remembered?
That awkward fat loser with no friends
>What kind of digital footprint would you leave in your wake?

My sister, she'd find some documents of vidya I should buy and some high school projects and essays. Also my music and video games. My porn is hidden and she'd never find it, though.
