Playing lots of pen and paper! At least I used to until the fucking virus came!

Are video games still nerdy?

I mean, as someone who's almost 30, I will say I find it amusing that as a child I and other friends were sometimes mocked and laughed at for playing video games

Yet here we are in 2020 and video games are like the number one fucking hobby and pretty much everyone under 40 plays video games in their spare time

.... What happened?

I like games, anime, waifus, fantasy stories and swords.


The technology matured to the point where even normies can enjoy it. Also two or three generations now have been born into the world of games. Unlike with my parents for whom games/systems are something mysterious and potentially hazardous, I grew up playing them and my offspring benefits from that experience.
Thus she gets to play Doom Eternal and I play Animal Crossing. As God intended.

Games, anime, Star Trek, books, obscure imageboards and community’s, dissent politics, and unironically being a cringy autistic virgin who probably has a good 90% chance of reaching wizardhood.

I love this meme.

I guess, cartoons, weebery, imageboards, playing DnD, I also like to learn about various sciency and sometimes fantasy stuff in general.

I'm once again the odd one out there.

Video games (if that even qualifies as nerdy anymore), programming, and I've been meaning to get into working with electronics.

Gaming, science (mostly physics), currently studying Japanese, anything science fiction, reading and watching (Farscape favorite show until Westworld reboot came along), ponies (mostly purple and grey ones), dabbling with Photoshop and Premiere, photography (though I only have a entry level Sony A5000, but 3 good lenses, kit, macro and zoom), music (play a bit piano, used to play violin) ... yeah, I try to keep my head busy.
My head gets bored very very fast, and when my head get bored, I get annoyed. And usually drink.
Oh, and beer. Beer is yum.

Depends on your definitions of "into". In my free time, I like some video games (Though a smaller and smaller proportion of what gets released as time passes, but I did spend two weeks playing Nioh 2 pretty non-stop), tabletop RPGs, Magic: The Gathering (Mostly Modern with a little EDH thrown in when I can find some people that aren't total scrubs or tryhards), sometimes a bit of writing (I like writing short horror stories, but they aren't very good), and I watch the occasional anime, cartoon, or geeky show when something catches my interest. I used to read a lot of books, but after working through all the classics that I was interested in, I haven't found anything new that interested me enough to deal with the annoyance of physical books. I should get a Kindle, but I spend all my money on overpriced nonsense instead.

For work, I deal with a lot of "computer stuff" - SQL management, following Windows updates as they come out, networking, cybersecurity, all that jazz - though unlike a few of my colleagues, I have little interest in coding, and couldn't program myself out of a cardboard box if someone held a gun to my head.

I come up with ideas for computer games such as their story, gameplay mechanics, how their physics work etc. I write down my ideas, realise I can't make games so do nothing with my ideas.

Some of my ideas are for fan game for Sega franchises, other ideas are entirely original.

Yep! I own a looooottt of board games. Many, many more than are pictured there - I've outgrown that shelf. Board games are the best. I actually just outright prefer them to video games - no eye strain, way more social interaction, a lot of really brilliant designs out there these days, and the artistry of creating games out of cardboard and wood and plastic is just beautiful to admire. I geek out about it.

If you, or anyone, ever wants to play a board game with me,
Even if you've never played a modern board game before, I will very very happily show you the ropes! I'm in such desperate need of gaming partners in this obnoxious time.

As a Sonic the Hedgehog fan, I also made up my own homebrew Sonic TTRPG.
But given I have no friends IRL to play with it's mostly untested.
I'm still working on the skill trees.
