I have a good friend who has been seen (not by me, but his wife, his sister in law and another good friend) sleeping soundly, head lying on a speaker in a danceclub while being sober! - I am somewhat jealous of that.

Speaking from personal and semi-professional experience, I second that PTSD is anything but a stupid excuse. Suffering from it put so much more weight on your shoulders, especially when dealing with social and potentially threatening issues. (And to make it even worse it is a sneaky bastard that can kick in at any time without you expecting it, stupid non-related triggers, stupid...)
Take care and be safe!

What if I don't want to continue fighting? What if I'm tired of getting my ass handed to me? What if I don't really want to be a part of a world that doesn't want me here? This has been a struggle for nearly 40 years for me. It's tiring. I'm so close to being done.

Knowing you only from these boards, I can say it would sadden me. From where I am, I can only offer you my virtual hand and little more. While I can't put myself into your shoes, I am suffering from depression and I know the feeling of being close to quit fighting. Please don't. If you can't fight anymore for now, seek out the relative safety of your friends and loved ones to help you through. Don't let hope die. Live through the storm to either pick up the fight again when you are ready or to be the safe haven and the council for another generation. Don't let the bigotted haters end the fight!

Coming from a small town in Germany, I must say I wasn't really aware of the problems LGBTQ people had to face until the end of my teenage years. I wasn't what you could call popular or well adjusted myself (physically and socially). I didn't care about somebody being gay or 'whatever', and I figured most folks wouldn't - if anything they wouldn't face more problems than I did.

When a friend of mine came out and did want to meet other LGBTQ folk another friend of mine, whom I knew for some time was gay, mentioned that there was a regular meeting at a local pub. I told my friend who was coming out, but he would't go alone so I offered to accompany him.

During the first eveing I had to hear stories of almost every man and a few of the women at the table that they have been insulted, threatened, beaten, sometimes had rocks thrown at them on more than one occasion - my faith in humanity was shaken quite a bit that evening and I started to have a more proactive outlook on the issue of LGBTQ (well, frankly mostly GL at first, mostly due to a lack of knowledge and experience) rights and acceptance.

Time did well, politics changed and while not all (probably not even most) was good, I heard less stories about abuse and violence, most LGBTQ folks I know living in my area sayd that they felt pretty secure now, some younger folks to my delight never experienced any harsh reactions. The neo-fascist scene in my hometown moved away for lack of acceptance (which made me quite happy as I have been a victim of ultra rightwing violence myself).

The last years brought problems back that I had hoped forgotten. insults at school became comonplace again, people rejecting even the most basic acceptance for LGBTQ people resurfaced. While my hometown is still a bit of a haven (the right wing party that brought/picked up much of this ugly old stuff got 50 people to listen to their pamphlet while 1,500 marched through the city protesting aginst them), seeing prejudices against any kind of minority wriggling themselfs back into everday politics makes me sick - seeing the canditate for presidency in the US getting elected not in small part for these prejudices...makes me want to cry.

I hope that you all, especially in the US, right now manage to stay reasonably safe, I hope and pray it will not come to the worst and manage to keep the values and virtues of a liberal, enlightened society safe for our own and the following generations during the storm of hate and bile that seems to rage through the world right now.

Sorry for the 'storytime', but I am not exactly known to be brief. Be safe and hugs to everyone who wants them.

I've heard of most of those; none of them grab me (and I've kind of had it up to HERE with "Skyrim this, Skyrim that" - I've seen footage, heard about "Fuss-Ro-Duh" or whatever, and it just doesn't seem interesting).

I'm certainly familiar with Civilization - never played it, not terribly interested, and attempts at similar games (Caesar II, for example) have taught me I have no idea what I'm doing.

Look at my list above. How many can you say you've heard of? I've inadvertently become the guy who's out of touch with most of the popular games, but is exceptionally familiar with all the obscure gems - with this new paradigm, even finding these gems is all but impossible.

I have heard of / played most of the games on your list (exept Neverhood and Obsidian). I admit it is hard to give you any advice. Looking for new games - the steam store is not a bad place to start - just ignore user reviews if you don't like armchair critics - and concentrate on the screenshots and the descriptions - oh and before chosing the Genre you are looking for, chose the 'type' game - so you won't have too sludge your way through the dlc and add ons for games you don't even know.

Games you might want to check out:
RPGs
Divinity 2 - Original Sin
Pillars of Eternity
Serpent in the Staglands
Might and Magic X
Shadowrun: Dragonfall
Legend of Grimrock 1+2

Diablo Style Games:
Torchlight II
Grim Dawn
Titan Quest (not that new, but pretty and dirt cheap if you wait for sales)

Other Games

Sorry guys. I follow the thread regularly. I am a gay married man. And I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder for going on 14 years now from a traumatic brain injury. (I should count myself lucky thats really all the aftereffects I got). Needless to say I am the mentally ill everyone is blaming. I have huge anxiety attacks that yes can make me aggressive, but no I have never hurt someone else while having them. Myself maybe but not someone else. Would I in the depths of my despair grab a gun and shoot a bunch of people who hate me? NEVER!!!! I may not like said people and they may eventually have part in my death by helping cause an anxiety attack that results in a heart attack or stroke. Have I had dark thoughts at my worst that I wish they would be harmed? I can admit that but I would never go through with it. The fact is most mentally ill people are much more likely to be victimized (as I have) or harm themselves. Now saying that I know my triggers and how to avoid getting more upset. I am not going to read anymore of the pro gun lobby explain this away, nor am I going to listen to people blame other marginalised groups and try and say it was anything but anti-LGBT hate. I am going to have to take a break for my own health. I wish you all the best. and I will look for charities to donate to help the Orlando families. (Don't pray as an atheist but I have to do something). I will be back to the thread after this has passed maybe in a few weeks....

I won't favorite your post, not because it doesn't ring all too true, but because I am sad that something in this thread makes you feel you need to take a break from it for a while. :-(
