The retro gaming community is filled with crazies of every stripe: closeted pedos, diehard weebs, gray market estrogen-chuggers trying to be their waifus, clinically depressed idiots that barely have the energy to get out of bed, covert narcissists, anti-capitalists/socialists, furries, white anti-racist activists, genuine porn addicts, and a shitload of extremely sensitive and feminine gay men. It's best to keep your contact with them to the utter minimum.
And for God's sake, NEVER EVER join their Twitter communities. It's just an endless circlejerk of depression, animu girls, half-baked political rants, and "ironic" memes like dril's tweets. It will unironically make you feel worse off about yourself than you did before.>tfw I'm a straight, conservative gun owner that occasionally does stuff with retro games but never gets engaged with the communities and never talk about politics so I completely fly past their radars>>4344870
This. Game hackers are now ultra-sensitive weirdos in their 20s with delusions of grandeur instead of bored teens that want to add their favorite characters to Mario.
