    Aren't we all hipsters?

    Post by BeeSeaEss on Mon Dec 03, 2012 7:10 pm

    Dark Souls is more of an underground selling game. (though at least it has advertising) More than 60 % of gamers probably never heard of the game. So aren't we all hipsters?
    (If you criticize, try not to be negative in an insulting way)

    I feel like a hipster sometimes because of Dark Souls...
    Since i've started playing Dark Souls i catch myself thinking how consumeristic some games actually are... ._.


    Also, you're 14? xD i don't think you're allowed to play Dark Souls according to the rating. Not that anyone gives a bloop silly

    This is stupid. Every gamer knows what dark and demons souls are and how hard they are.

    This reminds me of when people were trying o convince me that radio head is some hardcore underground band when they are one of the ost mainstream.

    People like to think that they are into something that no one knows about.

    I work in a games shop, and a lot of customers say they've either heard it's hard, or picked it up and kept dying. From what I've seen from a few years in retail, people just want something they can play for a couple of sessions and finish, and then either trade in for the next new release, or play the multiplayer for weeks. In some ways, I think the DkS mindset is probably similar to the 'hardcore' CoD MP one, albeit a little more mature/less populated by morons. Both require hours of playtime, and when you 'get to the end', you just start over again. The only real difference is that one game's set in a rich world, with a whole detailed history and a multitude of ways to play, and the other's just shooty-shooty-bang-bang-kill-more-people-get-more-guns.

    Dark Souls did change the way I look at and play other games though. I'm a lot more derisive of everything else; perhaps that is hipster, or perhaps it's justified. There are some seriously lazy attempts out there.

    like skare said, we used to be when demon's souls came out. dark souls got so much publicity and A LOT more people bought it.

    Well in my experience, out of all my friends i am the only one who actually knows about Dark Souls. Except for one person, and he gave up because he couldn't beat the Asylum demon. So looking from my point of view, not every gamer knows about Dark and Demons souls.

    Completely aggree with Skarectum. I was a huge CoD guy and probably a bit of a try hard I must admit. This game meets that need of a constant challenge , only much less frustrating , since fewer people seem to glitch in this game.

    Off topic but , valid point made earlier , the original poster shouldnt even be playing...... I dont care as you are not my child. However , I hope you are try to play this game in a mature way and dont do things like Gank and BS fish just because they are easy.

    I usually tend to turn the blood & gore off of games.(if possible)
    I'm not some immature little kid that ganks, BS fishes, spam, or send hate mail, I play with integrity and maturity, I also complement players for a fun duel in pvp. I get frustrated but I don't let it get to me. Even though I am not 18+, I think I am mature enough to play this game.

    Well if all that is true then welcome friend . I have nothing against children other than the way they tend to play games. In CoD it was the god damn aim bots and nube tubers. I already stated the popular childish ways for this game. As long as you play the way you say you do then and thank you for not being an idiot lol

    A hipster?

    Maybe.

    Also I don't think BSE's age matters since age doesn't represent maturity and immaturity, but that subject is for another thread.

    yea, a hipster is someone who likes things before it becomes mainstream and popular.

    So what the 2 million + sales and rising is now considered hipster? It's a triple A title gaming title like it or not, there are far more obscure games, hell even more obscure and difficult RPG's around than this.
    Hipster is now thrown around so much that the phrase is devoid of the little meaning it had originally.
    We all loved it because it's a f**king fantastic game which does a lot of the core elements of the game perfectly as well as refining and improving the weaknesses of Demon's Souls.
    So there's at least 2 million + hipsters out there on the planet confirmed. For sure. Heh.

    Now I remember why I vacated the internet for anything other than co-operative gaming. Humanity is a royal pain in the behind and is immensely annoying to spend time with.
    Back to the void!

    Hurray for Onion Knight for slapping the sh!+ out of us and waking us. Tip of the hat to you sir.

    I think at this point in time the people that consider themselves to be hipsters are fairly annoying people that are always trying to show you what "Is going to be the next big thing". As if because they wear quirky clothing , their opinion matters more than another human. I am fairly certain we are all equally irrelevant

    Well, to be fair, I'm sure there's a hell of a lot more than 2 million fashion hipsters out there! So 2 million owners of the same game, in comparison, could be considered hipster... Mention Dark Souls to any non-gamer and see if they have a clue what you're talking about! CoD, on the other hand, they might. So, sure, you could still say Dark Souls is hipster. Maybe not among the gaming community (but then that depends what you consider "the gaming community"--if you include all the CoD-tards and Madden-jocks and all, who have no idea either what Dark Souls is), but compared to society on the whole, sure.

    And that.....is why you're the stat guru. Well said. And to take it further, this community is a tiny portion of that comprised of some of the most enthusiastic owners of the game. So this forum could certainly be called Dark Souls Hipster.
