Add Starbound to ISTP master race aesthetic palette (bonus INTJ fantasizing below)


Common elements with Bastion: Gathering, hoarding, building, great soundtrack, pleasurable sensory overload, fantasy setting, outdoorsy settings. Not common with Bastion: good combat.

I don’t want to experiment with a million viable styles of kung fu, I want to be insanely good at the one that works. Boneflour can confirm this from playing Wizard of Legend together: he likes trying new combinations, I like trying the combination that works for me again except with a 1% improvement in reaction time.

I suspect combat-oriented walkabout fantasy RPGs (Hyper Light Drifter, Zelda, Bastion) are more of an INTJ thing because games lacking violence, like Starbound and Minecraft, don’t really appeal to me. Basically what I need in a game is to hit a bad guy with a sword (after a hundred retries of course or it was too easy) and after he bursts into gore the land turns from a black and red hellscape to a green pastoral setting with a blue sky. Then I go to the next hellscape. Other elements are allowed but unnecessary. Oblivion got the formula exactly right with the hellgates popping up around the country burninating the peasants, I could close those things all day.

    The game you’re looking for is Hades.

      Looks like Bastion with different aesthetics. Not that I’m complaining, it looks pretty good.

        If you really need to game every day, then you could allocate just half an hour towards this and drop all other games. Once the story is complete, runs are easier and take about 25 minutes.

        Doesn’t waste time and you get your fix. But I’m addicted to playing a run every day now.

        This is not as addicting as N++, which was pure dope.

          I’m not much of a gamer, it’s a chore for me. It’s like my relationship with sugar, it just doesn’t occur to me to eat it unless it’s on the schedule.

          The other part of my interest is that games are the genuinely interesting side of programming, so I try to dwell on it as much as I can just as a professional development thing.
