But it's impossible to 'over-think' something, because 'over-thinking' and 'deeply examining' or 'analyzing' are the exact same things
#5 - dontknowmeatall (04/23/2014) [-]
No, they're not.

Deeply analysing: "Well, Jen smiles at me and tries to sit next to me at lunch. We have a great time together and we can talk about a lot of things without getting bored. If I ask her out, there's a good chance she says yes, and even if she doesn't, we can still be friends, that doesn't have to end."

Over-thinking: "WTF Jen smiled at me!!! I think she has the hots for me. But what if she doesn't? what if she's just a bitch pretending to be nice to mock me when I tell her I like her??? What if she gets people to see it and laugh at me and they put it on Youtube and it goes viral and everyone in the world makes fun of my betaness??? She might like me but if she doesn't my life is fucked. I hate that bitch, I hope she drops dead. And THEN I'll fuck her. And I'll hide the body behind that old tree next to Josh's house so they blame on him. But I'll have to use a condom or they might find my DNA and I'll be done. I better go to FJ instead of this. FunnyJunk would never laugh at my feelings unless I become a fag. I'm not a fag, I'll go fap to re-stablish my self-esteem."

That's Negative-Overthinking you're referring to in the bottom example. Positive-Overthinking is what's happening in the first example.

It's just that "Overthinking" in general has a negative connotation attached to it because people so rarely "Overthink" positive scenarios

that's kinda predictable though, i know the story too well...
User avatar #23 - RealRune (04/23/2014) [-]
The story is the same in all of the games though...
All that really changes are the names.

Should check out expert emerald nonetheless, adds an actual challenge to the game.
Been ages since I looked around at the ROM mods, quite possible there are similar things for the other Pokemon games.

Depends a little on what you're aiming for with the series tbh.

By good example, I mean things which are targeted at children but have a older fan base. I know plenty of people who did not watch/play them as a child but liked them as an adult. People don't grow up, they just learn how to act in public I'm quoting that from someone forget who As for games I was going for a bit of a stretch on that one, but there are plenty of childish looking casual games which were intended for children that older audiences will play.

I think the reason for their escalation on the internet is purely based on the way it works. In real life, if you like something everyone would find weird you (normally) keep quiet about it and it just stays as it is, whereas on the internet you can go to places where you are literally surrounded by people who like it to with no one there to provide a counter point, and those that do are branded as trolls and are simply ignored, thus the thing which brings it down to a normal level is gone and it goes out of control very quickly.

Compare it to something that'd be perceived as normal, say watching the TV show The Mentalist, you'd discuss it with friends and perhaps one of them doesn't like the show, it either then becomes a discussion as to why and both sides expand their ideas and have different perspectives, or for the sake of a friendly atmosphere you find a different common ground.
On the Internet this doesn't exist, it has specific areas for specific interests and so no middle ground is ever found and it is free to just grow and grow.

Of course, but many things branch out of their target audience, Pokémon would be a good example, in fact many computer games would fit into this category. Heck the adoration to Spongebob is still alive and well in many people yet it is directed at young children.

I think what the main issue is is the internet culture is starting to become less and less hidden. A lot of people, not everyone but a lot of people had that guilty pleasure they liked but wouldn't speak about it to people they knew personally and just enjoyed it in their own time.
These were not entirely unique and a lot of people around the globe had the same, the internet brought them all together where they can all discuss it and share whatever the created about it.
As the internet culture becomes more and more understood and used, it starts to leak out into society, so people who once kept all their not so socially common enjoyments behind closed doors, now see that all around the world many people have the same interests and therefore are willing to be more open about it.
Society just hasn't quite caught up that people like different things, sometimes small differences, sometimes significant.
User avatar #96 - RealRune (04/23/2014) [-]
How is Pokemon a good example? Or Spongebob?
Neither have any appeal to an adult, or rather, to a mature audience.
Spongebob maaaybe sometimes, but it just gets annoying.
Only reason anyone other than children have any liking for them is because they watched them as children.
Games are different though, most games are aimed at an audience based on genre as opposed to age.



Hmmm, fair point. I find it more to be that things tend to escalate to quickly on the internet and just reach ridiculous proportions. Then there are people that think that that is acceptable in society.

I think it ties in more with the social stigma though... People say they like it and the other person then forgets that there are certain stimuli which make people enjoy something because of the social expectations which are used to predict something.
If someone told me they listen to Dubstep, Rock, Rap, whatever, I would just accept it and move on. If someone told me they like watching Supernatural, Dexter, The Big Bang Theory or whatever, I can would just accept that and move on. But when someone tells you they enjoy something which doesn't register to you as something that is considered common/normal of your expectations you require some explanation, at which point they remind you of all the points (story, characters ect ect) that make something enjoyable.

Well, you don't have to stop watching something just because on one factor, if you like it, you like it, not much you can do about that.
Its not really a justification though, its the same as explaining why you like anything, be it a tv show, a drink/food, music, whatever, you explain the qualities of it which make it enjoyable for yourself.

Well its just unusual because that's the way society went with its specifying of what each sex can/should enjoy.

It would of had to come from somewhere though, if it was just a few autistic kids who got into it, it'd of been shrugged at, maybe mocked a little then swept away and ignored like most internet things, yet something sparked it off, therefore there must be something within it beyond the little kid aspect that makes it appeasing.

If someone told me they listen to Dubstep, Rock, Rap, whatever, I would just accept it and move on. If someone told me they like watching Supernatural, Dexter, The Big Bang Theory or whatever, I can would just accept that and move on. But when someone tells you they enjoy something which doesn't register to you as something that is considered common/normal of your expectations you require some explanation, at which point they remind you of all the points (story, characters ect ect) that make something enjoyable.

I getcha.

Nonetheless, adults seem to enjoy the show more than it's target audience. That's why it's considered so strange. Then it escalated and the internet made it a big thing.
I'll accept that there may be some parts that are aimed at an older audience but the fact remains that the main target is little girls.
User avatar #95 - shinigamigod (04/23/2014) [-]
Of course, but many things branch out of their target audience, Pokémon would be a good example, in fact many computer games would fit into this category. Heck the adoration to Spongebob is still alive and well in many people yet it is directed at young children.

I think what the main issue is is the internet culture is starting to become less and less hidden. A lot of people, not everyone but a lot of people had that guilty pleasure they liked but wouldn't speak about it to people they knew personally and just enjoyed it in their own time.
These were not entirely unique and a lot of people around the globe had the same, the internet brought them all together where they can all discuss it and share whatever the created about it.
As the internet culture becomes more and more understood and used, it starts to leak out into society, so people who once kept all their not so socially common enjoyments behind closed doors, now see that all around the world many people have the same interests and therefore are willing to be more open about it.
Society just hasn't quite caught up that people like different things, sometimes small differences, sometimes significant.

How is Pokemon a good example? Or Spongebob?
Neither have any appeal to an adult, or rather, to a mature audience.
Spongebob maaaybe sometimes, but it just gets annoying.
Only reason anyone other than children have any liking for them is because they watched them as children.
Games are different though, most games are aimed at an audience based on genre as opposed to age.



Hmmm, fair point. I find it more to be that things tend to escalate to quickly on the internet and just reach ridiculous proportions. Then there are people that think that that is acceptable in society.
User avatar #99 - shinigamigod (04/23/2014) [-]
By good example, I mean things which are targeted at children but have a older fan base. I know plenty of people who did not watch/play them as a child but liked them as an adult. People don't grow up, they just learn how to act in public I'm quoting that from someone forget who As for games I was going for a bit of a stretch on that one, but there are plenty of childish looking casual games which were intended for children that older audiences will play.

I think the reason for their escalation on the internet is purely based on the way it works. In real life, if you like something everyone would find weird you (normally) keep quiet about it and it just stays as it is, whereas on the internet you can go to places where you are literally surrounded by people who like it to with no one there to provide a counter point, and those that do are branded as trolls and are simply ignored, thus the thing which brings it down to a normal level is gone and it goes out of control very quickly.

Compare it to something that'd be perceived as normal, say watching the TV show The Mentalist, you'd discuss it with friends and perhaps one of them doesn't like the show, it either then becomes a discussion as to why and both sides expand their ideas and have different perspectives, or for the sake of a friendly atmosphere you find a different common ground.
On the Internet this doesn't exist, it has specific areas for specific interests and so no middle ground is ever found and it is free to just grow and grow.

Yep it supports controllers, and it's much better. Mouse/keyboard controls are awful due to how the game is set up, even with different bindings a controller is a much better option.
