    Yikes guys.
    Just live another 50 or so years and you're there.
    The dystopian future is a thing if we as a global community keep sitting back and doing nothing, which we will.

    There is an Australian movie about Mykonos. I'm aware of what it's like...And no one said anything about the family coming. 😂 (I'm kidding!)
    Thanks for the recommendation though.

    I'd make a cheap, crappy Tetris style, whatever nothing game and run away with the rest of the cash. 😉

    Yea it can be tough but its best to try and not get in your own head about it (easier said than done I know).  As soon as you start thinking about messing up it makes it more likely that it will occur, you psych yourself out.  Sometimes I will pause before a big fight, take some deep breaths, remind yourself verbally (out loud) to be calm, take it slow, be patient, speak your general strategy out loud to yourself.  Then when you resume focus on the game and your gameplan, nothing else.

    Nope.
    I'm always on the lookout for CookieSwirlC on Roblox though, I know my daughter would lose it if we saw her avatar on it. (She's a big fan.)

    I think I need to find/play Grim Fandango...
    I remember hearing a lot about it around 2000, so maybe it's time.
    Anyway @Alyxx stole my answer. It was The Curse of Monkey Island.
    Escape From Monkey Island is good as well.

    The other thread I think was 'how has gaming influenced your real life' so yeah, very similar.
    My answer is pretty much going to be the same - I learned a lot about skating boarding, which was a fixture of my early teens through Tony' Hawk's ProSkater.
    The other thing though, The Sims taught me about a bit of economic management. So that's fun.

    Actually yes, add this to my list as well.
    I skip intros and cut scenes as a matter of routine. I mean, maybe if I am really invested I'll watch them - but I'm rarely invested in a game to that extent.
    If I wanna kick back and watch something, I have NetFlix.

    I place 0 stock in Halloween, I'm actually avoiding a Podcast this month because they won't shut up about it. 😛 (Looking at you, Stuff To Blow Your Mind.)
    Nah, it sounds pretty good though. I especially love the sound of it not being two people who are already on board.
    I'll let you know what I think!

    Yeah, The Parapod is a really good podcast! It's mostly non-fiction and based on real-life stories. It's made up of two guys with really good chemistry. One guy really believes in the paranormal and the other - his best friend - doesn't believe at all. It's a nice mixture of pragmatism, humour and the paranormal. Check out the first episode and I'm sure you'll know if it's for you or not after that! Listening to it around Halloween is timely, too:)

    So true. And yeah while I enjoy all of the games, Curse will always be my favourite in terms of writing.

    Escape From Monkey Island had it's moments - but it definitely is a step back.
    "Look at the size of her...Ponytail."
    The first two, were certainly nowhere close to as well done as Curse though. I mean, Curse has Murray - and Murray is golden.

    MegaphoneStallone got a reaction from StaceyPowers in What is your worst lost progress story ever?   
    Mine is a bit lame, but whatever. It is what it is.
    Playing Retail Tycoon on Roblox with my daughter last year we built this major department store. Raking in the millions, no skipping steps, no payments, no cheats.
    We tried to load it one day, somehow it'd been deleted.
    I kind of call conspiracy though - I think Roblox weren't happy we'd maxed everything out organically rather than buying their stupid short cuts.

    The only one I can think of, embarrassing as this is - I kind of took up skating as a teen due to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. 😛
    This made me a few friends, I've had some falling outs and haven't skated in about as decade (probably more...Actually definitely more.)
    So, I guess that had an impact at one point.

    That sounds...Stressful.
    Are the suicide rates in Spain of people jumping in front of trains big? It happens a lot here, to the point train driving is considered and paid as high risk work.

    Oh, yes! Positivity is the best way to deal with anything as deplorable as this - and it's great to hear more about your human experience. 🙂
    I do worry for my kid's futures. Now and then I'm optimistic that, surely as time goes on things will get better. But you're right, it ebbs and flows. Sadly I feel like a rise in far/alt-right politics in the mainstream has really given the knuckle-dragging bigots the confidence they didn't have before to come out in droves. 😞
