Peaked too early, nobody will remember it next year. Wink

Nah, that is a cracker indeed!

Who remembers this incredible thread and original post by The Cappuccino Kid?

Also thanks to anyone who's thought anything I've written is worthy of being put on here.

You really need the context for this one, but Jay had me rolling in the aisles.

At this point, a Jimbob belter surprises no-one. Had to stop myself laughing because it would have taken too long to explain to the people around me. Embarrassed

There's also Jay hitting this home run.

I don't often lurk about in old threads, but I found myself in the 2013 Forum Awards on the way to work this morning and I was creased when I saw this:

orry, sorry, that wasn't me, that was my father. Leviticus and all that...

"THOU SHALT FUCK OFF" actually had me really struggling to hold in my laughter on the busy train. Just about pished myself! Maybe it's because I was reading it in Jesus' voice.

That thread is full of the parody accounts most of us had at the start of GNamer. My all-time fondest memory of this whole place was that random weekday afternoon where loads of us happened to be logged on and where we just launching all sorts of slaggings at one another through Heron accounts.

Back on Cappa's post - there were some cracking alternate accounts going for a while. I'd be open to a revival of sorts for them, purely to overshadow the Hopkins.

This lovely little finish (?) from The Balls Man. This cultured player's reputation is well-deserved. Thumbs Up!

I thought it was a grand thread in total. Thumbs Up! to another one of the big men.

I was flicking back through old threads and recalled this. Cappa's post properly had me laughing; Jimbob's also deserves a mention for making my skin crawl.

I actually thought "Jesus, Jimmers" reading that post back, then I read my post right afterwards. Laughing

I've hardly changed.

Drunken gold. Needs the context though.

This one from Muss in the "your actual top 10 games etc" thread.

Muss wrote:
Thumbs Up!  To Jaster, there is a dark beauty to seemingly nihilistic worlds and the struggles within them.

I like thematically fatalistic fiction because such works often engage honestly with real world issues, while adding believable characters within a given setting and a sense of suspense at every obstacle because fleeting happiness, or a character striving for something good, can be taken away at a moments notice without the universe giving a toss.

I tend not to care too much whether everything works out or goes horribly wrong for a given character/universe in the end, although a balance is oftentimes more fitting, what matters more to me is the overall journey. Moments of triumph, crushing defeats or phyric victories within a compelling setting over the course of an appropriate amount of hours makes the narrative believable and relatable, a reflection upon reality.

Many lambast Telltale Games for providing 'superficial' choices only, but through their well written dialogue I become immersed with the character I control, the actions chosen a seamless fusion of character and player. I love those games because they aren't about changing the world, they're about doing what you can in a Universe that isn't even aware you exist.

I wasn't a huge fan of Majora's Mask, but it is thematically fascinating, with mechanics perfectly intertwined with the overall narrative. Being able to rewind time basically makes Link a demi-god, a mini Superman if you will. But like Supes, it's not about saving everyone, it's about making choices for good or for ill and having to live with those choices.

I do sometimes like having my cake and eating it. I will fight a man who mocks any of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures, but when it comes to the whole 'I should have the option of making everything work out' logic, no. I play video games for escapism too, but that's no justification for a perfect ending all the time, and there are plenty of games where everything works out perfectly.

That's certainly a good swan song for longer posts. I'm sure we'll get plenty of great #posts at @GNamerForum!

It's a good post, albeit it couldn't be further from my own views.  Actually I think BotW does post-apocalyptic as well as a game can for me: faeces have descended in a major world-ending character-murdering way, but that was 100 years ago, and the stage is set to make what can be made right, right.

This from The Muss-leman, and the sweetly played response from mas directly underneath. Good work, fellow fellows!

The sequence of four posts starting here. I did say four, I know that's being Drunka levels of cheeky but given Smurfy's response I hope I can get away with it. Besides, I'd never have thought it up without the three posts before it.

Excuse me, I've never put my own posts in here!
That was an excellent example of what we can achieve working together, though, like the Phoenix Write routine a while back.

Aye, I actually meant to say how well everyone played that but it goes down as a Jimbob classic for me. Thumbs Up!
