LMS Princess Royal Class, solely because the song Saxon made about it is absolutely 100% top tier banger.

What’s your favourite item of clothing you have?

I have a hat I've worn for around 2 years now. Wear it practically every time I go out. It's just a standard baseball cap with the vault boy from Fallout on it.

My buddies got me a Hillary Clinton colouring book for a birthday gift around the election and we all coloured it together, making shitty memes all the way. Still have it, looking back it's cringy as hell, but it was a lot of fun at the time

"Hillary Clinton colouring book" are words I could never have imagined in that sequence until now.

As to your question, the margherita. Perfection in simplicity.

LSD: Dream Emulator. I'm not a big vidya guy, but I've always thought that video games have a lot of potential to be used as art, but almost never use it for that purpose. LSD scratches that itch for me. Yume Nikki is a close runner-up for the same reason. Just open-world surreal games with no particular goals, I guess. (suggestions for similar games are welcome!)

I collect little bits of artwork from whoever I can. A few pieces from Australia hang in my home because I got the artist to send them to me so she wouldnt trash them due to depression. I also have some doodles by the guy who did Nine Planets Without Intelligent Life when I worked with him at a coffee shop. Otherwise I just collect old punk records.

If we're not counting PC then the Xbox 360. Not because I think it's the best system ever or anything, but simply because out of all the systems I've owned I have the best memories playing that.

Do you have a favourite book?

83 Name: Paperplane : 2019-06-05 05:42

My significant other got me big a book that has most of Lovecraft's stories in it. It was compiled by a scholar who also wrote lots of annotations into the texts which give lots of background info about Names, language, Lovecraft himself etc. Sometimes with pictures of Lovecraft's hand written letters/notes and photographs of actual places mentioned or alluded to in the stories. On top of that, this huge tome has a really nice design which makes it look like some old warlock's spellbook or so.
The best thing is, she gifted me it without any special reason, just because she knows I would like it.

>>85 What's your favorite insect?
85 Name: Anonymous : 2019-06-11 14:11
>>84
I would have to say among insects, I most prefer the dragonfly. Not only do they prey on mosquitoes, but they are also a good indictator that the ecology of the surrounding environment is low in toxins, because their nymphs need very clean water. Moreover, they have that lovely sheen to their carapace

>>86
What's your favorite childhood memory?
86 Name: Paperplane : 2019-06-11 14:45
>>85
Exellent choice of insect. Just yesterday read about them and didn't know that they are predators that also hunt mosquitoes.

My favourite childhood memory is probably one of several of me and my best friend playing pretend during elementary school times. At first we didn't like each other but during a field trip we walked next to each other by accident and after talking noticed that we have more in common than expected and thus a great friendship unfolded.
We met always daily and pretended to be knights and wizards by swinging sticks around. It was at the timt the LOTR movies aired so we imagined our sticks to be swords and that we were fighting against orcs and othee monsters. We imagined whole storylines complete with "NPCs", recurring places, quests, rewards etc. and after playtime was over, we met the next day and continued where we left off yesterday. Star Wars, LOTR, Zelda and Secret/Sword of Mana were major inspirations for our "games" and we kinda made a mish mash out of all of these.
I miss having such vivid imagination. In my mind I was really standing there on a battlefield and the stick really was a sword. This friend was also the only one I could do this with because all my other friends lacked interest/imagination so the whole thing will always have a special place in my heart.
Sometimes when we were fed up with one "game" we just started anew, starting as the unlikely heros of a village until fighting our way to be knights with our own keeps and servants.

I guess having such an affinity for play pretend paved the way for my current affiliation with TTRPGs like D&D and stuff.

>>87 what's your favourite holiday?

Licorice. While it's really popular in my country, I just can't get enough of it. I love just about every variety there is.

Now, "allsorts licorice" isn't licorice at all. Salty or 'salmiak' licorice is the real deal. There's also sweet variants, half-winegum-half-licorice stuff and for the real licorice lover? There's laurel licorice that tastes really intense.

If you've never eaten licorice? You totally should. There's a licorice for everyone out there. Try starting with something sweet first. If you're ever in the Netherlands? Try "autodrop" as that's fairly beginner friendly.

as for the actual question, I like competitive pokemon, though I don’t play much these days because of my pc spoiling me with 144fps (my 3ds looks like a flipbook now) and game freak insisting on hour-long unskippable tutorials with perpetual handholding. I came 5th place at a national championship in 2015, for which I won a mountain of booster packs. Still haven’t opened any of them.

Not sure if it fully counts, but garluc for sure. Savory foods are already so delicous, and a bit of garlic can enhance enhance it so easy. I use it a lot in sauteed veggies and the like

Who's your favorite director and what made you discover them?
94 Name: Anonymous : 2019-08-09 23:49

He's not very hard to discover, but I think my favorite director currently is David Lynch. I have had a film buff friend for quite a while who has repeatedly told me to watch his works, but they didn't click for me until the latest season of Twin Peaks. There is something really magical in it (especially Dougie Jones' saga), and it made me get into the rest of his catalogue more seriously.

Tortilla Wraps with salad, tomatoes, carrot, chicken strips and burger sauce. Alternatively sushi but that always takes so long. Been way too long since I made some.

Games without balance, somehow in modern gaming the idea of balance is so dominant that we all forgot the joy of being able to realise how to control the mechanics and start winning in majority of case if we are able to.

Example: Heroes of Might and Magic 3
98 Name: Anonymous : 2019-08-11 21:25
Balance brings mastery to the table. The joy of burning the enemy to the ground while both of you have the same set of tools is much better.
What you are talking about are exploits and bugs.
99 Name: Anonymous : 2019-08-12 16:33
>>98

How is it an exploit if it is part of the design. And lack of balance produces a different balance, the balance of luck and knowledge of unbalanced strategies and attempting to find out which bullshit strategy is better than other bullshit strategy.

That offers much more emotion and passion into gameplay than anything else.

So everyone just sports the most OP stuff and it becomes bland and boring soon since there's only one or few favourable playstyles despite there being theoretically many more that just get outclassed because of bad design.

Also 100 get
Also also sorry >>96

Nice get. Well, you have to play and watch couple of videos on HoMM3 or Might and Magic series, or early TES to see what kind of enjoyment.

It does not really matter for competetive but in my opinion any competetive community is either burning pile of garbage or a comfy profest (but just for pros in that competetive game).
