Why i LOVE our older gaming community

Hey Dear Readers,

I get that i am probably on the older side of gaming being 31 but i love meeting fellow older gamers.

That is not to say the younger gaming generation is bad. On the countrary i have many gaming buds who are in highschool and college who are some great friends and i love being able to give them some wisdom on life.

However them being younger i at times want to bang my head on the wall as to the stupid and dare i say childish behavior. There has been plenty of times where i have just straight up left the Xbox party out of frusteration.

Enter in my older gaming friends who are a true treat when i find them and we click haha. These gamers are older or roughly the same age and just amazing. We talk about work, family, life, health, and just enjoy the company while we are in a party. Yes we are questing and or shooting baddies but it is so much more relaxed and calm.

Some work retail, some are between jobs, some are not able to but not letting that hold them back from trying to hussle in other ways. Such as streaming on twitch or youtube. Which was not a thing when i was a kid and i love that we can try to do that.

The biggest thing for me is not having to apologize for life just happening i say this because so many young gamers they eat and sleep their game of choice. I get tunnel vision happens but my health be it physical or mental takes priority.

It is second nature now to get on a chat and apologize for not joining sooner or not being on all morning and bam we’ll start gaming but the added stress is there for me. Even though yes it is 100% a me problem i need to work on. It is something the younger generation at times gives us older generation grief for.

With the older generation everytime i have started to apologize i’m told not to worry about it and they are just happy i am on now or just hey life happens. Which is a great change of pace and allows me to not stress about it.

My last biggiest thing that makes me love my fellow older gamers is COMMUNICATION yes it is not a one size fits all and not everyone young or old is great at communication but i have found the older generation is much better at talking things out in a chat rather then raging and leaving the chat.

Yes that can be summed up to just being older and wiser but it also is nice to not have people call each other poo heads every other word when a battle isn’t going the right way.

Instead my older generation friends will say “Alright we totally sucked. Lets discuss what went wrong”. And its like yes. Lets not lay blame lets go forward as a group and be epic together.

I get a lot of the above comparing and contrasting will most likely be weeded out with the younger generation getting older but lets make sure as the next generation comes into gaming we show them good habits and better over all.

I get not every young gamer is bad or annoying and every older generation gamer is good and walks on water. This big blue world has many different people on it but we as a gaming community need to better to learn from our older gamers both just listen about life but realize we are all one day going to be the olde gamer and should continue to make our community and world a better place.

What do you all think about our older generation gamers. Are you one as well? Or do you think i am totally wrong. Let me know 🙂

It’s okay to go offline

Hello Readers,

So i often think we as gamers need to remember its okay to go offline. You’re thinking okay Otome. What do you mean by that. Well let me tell you my dear reader.

I mean two things from that.

1. Don’t forget we live on this big ball with nature, and birds, and sunshine. Every now and then get out of your room, or house and see the outside world. Your mental health and eyes will thank you. Even if it just to decompress from that last boss battle, or that crazy round you just had in a shooter.

2. Also probably most importantly. Don’t forget to take time for you. Yes i know you’re thinking you game there for you already are taking time for you. Yes that is true enough but i mean more then that. Don’t forget your favorite shows or maybe that one anime you’ve been meaning to watch but you just haven’t had a moment to yourself when you get online to do that.

That is what going offline is for we gamers love our games. No duh, and we also love our gaming community we’ve built up of all our friends. However that said. I don’t know about you all but at times when i get online i go into the who is gonna invite me to their party first mode.

Don’t get me wrong it is wonderful to feel loved by my gaming friends but as someone who cut the cable cord and use my xbox to stream there are times where i just want a me day

If i join my friends later on great but i really want a day where i can binge watch some Downton Abbey or just get losy in a youtube hole and take a mental break from killing bosses or grinding that next level out.

Maybe you all can be in a party with friends who are gaming or doing their own thing while you are doing yours and if you can that is awesome. I know a few people like that but i would just remind you to take time for you.

Enjoy going offline and being in the moment as much as we all love going into our digital worlds of choice. 🙂

So here is my question for you all. Aside from gaming what is something you all do for you. Give me another hobby you like. 🙂 i can’t wait to read them.

Is it wrong to want a Boyfriend to Dungeon Delve with?

Hello Dear Readers,

So this is not an Anime title. Though if you know what the inspiration is from points for you 🙂

However the question is a valid one now with Boyfriend Dungeon out on Xbox gamepass. This cute dungeon crawler and dating sim is awesome.

If you like games like Hades but were dying for a more in depth dating experiance this will probably scratch that itch.

You can choose your pronouns, if that is your thing and you can choose your choice of dating partner regardless of their gender. That to me isn’t the coolest part though.

To me the coolest part is that your partner, who ever you choose will be a weapon. Saber, sword etc etc. And you dear reader are the welder of them and that is one of the ways you gain experiance and up their romance level as you go about the dungeon.

Tell me of a game that gives you that! I’ll wait….none that is for sure as far as i am aware. The dating aspect of the game though doesn’t really leave a lot to want. It is pretty routine choose your response up the friendship / relationship level etc etc nothing really new.

The story is pretty bland as well your typical MC who has never had success dating and is spending the summer with your cousin. There is also a slight mystery to solve as well but again nothing to crazy to write home about.

Still though it is a great game and i highly recommend this to anyone and everyone who likes a dungeon crawler or dating sim to give this a go you will mot regret it.

What is your favorite Otome/ Dating sim Title?

Alright friends question of the day. What is YOUR favorite Otome / Dating sim title? Since this blog started due to Cafe Enchante it is easy to say what mine is. Haha. Now I want a hot chai tea mmmm.

Are there any that you are looking for or brought in from over seas?

I think after I get through my backlog I am going to probably get Dream Daddy. I had it on my phone but now that it is on the switch I think it will be a great grab and go dating game.

Are you all my dear readers liking straight, or gay dating games. I would love more feedback please send me links and recommendations.

Welcome to my Blog..Enjoy!

Well here is the first post. Wow it has a lot to live up to haha. Hopefully I can look back and this and know I have grown. Lets call me Otomebro. I am a 30 year old male here in the US. In 2019 I treated myself to a switch lite nothing big. After all, tons of gamers have them. Recently I picked up my first visual novel game and realized a few things.

1. These are fun games

2. Very few reviews are on them

3. I had NO idea where to get more content and trust me I needed more haha.

4. I wanted to solve that problem.

…..So here we are. Hi 🙂
