Am I making this thread up? A thread to help find other threads!

Uh… wasn‘t there like a thread to post screenshots of words of encouragement in video games? Or simply nice stuff that video games sometimes say? Am I making this up? I can’t find it, should I create that thread?

Sometimes threads have strange and funny names and that makes them hard to find. Use this thread to post similar questions when you can't find the thread you are looking for!

@“穴”#p62365 Did you find it?

@“dylanfills”#p62367 Thanks! I dedicate this screenshot @“穴”#p62368 to you!

okay I have one - do we have a thread for general discussion about the podcast? I understand that I‘m rich with weekly threads about particular episodes, but I’ve been binging the old ones.

For example - in a really early one Frank and Brandon are discussing how bad they want a timeloop game and well, welcome to 2022. Where would I spill that thought?

Please feel free to enjoy the above early access version of a post to come, try to understand it's just an idea at this point, but your feedback is crucial!

@“notthetoilet”#p63707 I don‘t think so, but also I don’t think anyone here cares all that much about “usual” forum rules like “don't necro threads”. If you have something you want to say in an old topic, just go for it! Load up the thread for an early episode (if it exists, if not – make it!) and hit reply.

Personally, I quite like seeing something like the "2 years later" line in a thread. It means I get to be reminded of cool stuff again!

Oh I love that. I wonder how many other habits I've built up from those rough and tumble early days getting my forum legs.

@“rejj”#p63713 i never understood why thread necromancy was frowned upon in other forums. what's the harm? why did that become a faux pas?

@“Syzygy”#p63724 thank you! i had not considered these possibilities, which i think speaks to the maturity and general coolness of our community here.

Is there a thread for showing game aesthetics that are meaningful to you? It seems like this forum would be The Place for this but I can't seem to find one. I have been thinking about some moment in time game art styles from the 360 era that I want to post/discuss.

Is there a thread for/should there be a thread for just talking about The Latest News In Gaming?

I know we all have varying degrees of interest in actually keeping updated on the real time videogame environment, but besides my personal friends there aren't many other people whose responses or insight I would want on The Latest News. Sometimes it's easy enough to bring up a recent development in a tangentially related thread but there isn't always a perfectly relevant thread to bring something up in.

Basically do we have/need a thread equivalent of the local coffee shop where the same boomer men go every morning to read the paper and then complain about it

@“Gaagaagiins”#p64221 I think you‘re right that they’re pretty much all split up among more specific thread (New games chat, Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard, Nintendo Direct Thread, etc.) and that having a more centralized hub for Anything would be really convenient. I know I personally have definitely seen little pockets of news and journalism that I‘d have liked the forum’s opinions on, but it didn‘t fit into any of the preexisting threads and wasn’t really substantial enough to create a new one for.

I second the need for a thread like this

@“Chopemon”#p63758 I don't think there is, and you could make it!

@"notthetoilet"#p63707 you could start one - there are no threads for episodes from before the forum existed so... Might be good?

Is there a thread dedicated to after market games? I've had a cursory search but nothing has come up other than the occasional post in console-specific threads.

@“LeFish”#p64489 Maybe if you didn’t want to make a new thread hacks, hardware, emulation, oh my might suffice. The thread started out talking narrowly about emulation but gradually broadened to talk about other things and was thus renamed. So why not broaden the discussion some more!

But I think you could also make a new thread. I am working on an aftermarket game myself, so it will be selfishly useful to me for self-promotion purposes when it’s showable lol

@“Syzygy”#p64520 Oh yes, I'd forgotten about this - well remembered!

I think it was here, but some folks were talking about how Taito used to follow semi cultish guidelines for game making that had nothing to do with creative merit or sales data, like it had to follow these buddhist sect‘s tenets or something… was that here? I can’t find it in the show me taito thread.

I've got a little thing I wanna write about a certain controller from my past

Is there a thread where we talk about input devices ?

I know we have a thread about video game cover box art…is there one for album covers? Because if not, I might have to take matters into my own hands.

@“rearnakedwindow”#p69329 Not one that I can recall!

@"Syzygy"#p70252 isn't there only the "recommended essay" or video threads? hmm

@“rearnakedwindow”#p69329 there is one for game OST album covers, but that might not be what you're looking for! https://forums.insertcredit.com/d/1338-rad-game-music-album-art
