The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The first time I played it was when I was 12 or so, and it was the very first game of its type that I ever played (open-world RPG) and that said, obviously also my first Elder Scrolls game. I was immediately sucked in and totally immersed, and to this day, it remains very special to me.
Opposite question of the above--is there a video game that you just can't stand? One that you hate so much you could write an essay about your hate for it?
Any empty, repetitive game that requires you to buy stuff to get more money to buy more stuff to get more money (like Farmville or Cookie Clicker). They don't tell an interesting story and don't challenge any of your skills, they just want you to consume and mindlessly waste your time.
What was the type (Ennea / mbti) you initially typed as?
As a unit my initial typing was something perfectly correspondent to the word "wrong". No, I am heavily unlike them. We do not align whatsoever. Then again, I don't relate to the people of my actual type either on anything but a very basic level. Though I think that in itself is actually more than enough as it says a greater deal than those I find parallels with in the ever shifting overtones.
Cognizant that it breeds stagnation, do you believe self-contentment is truly the healthy counterpart to self-discontent's ostensibly unhealthy?
Hey, you should have let me come to the conclusion that it breeds stagnation on my own! It's no fun if you do all the thinking for me.
That said, I don't think that being self-content is the healthy counterpart to being discontent. Self-discontentment can be healthy too (then it's a desire to improve). As for the stagnation bit, I don't really know what you mean by that. If you mean one won't change much as a person, then I disagree. You can be content and still improve (or change in almost any other way). It's not like being content prevents you from having life experiences.
If you could magically acquire master-level skills in anything, what skill would you improve (or acquire)?
My friend decided to tell me via a disturbing snapchat photo of a pool of blood that he was in the hospital after getting hit by a car. There are a few others but it would take too long to type all of them out and I need to get my butt into bed.
Are there certain foods or beverages you just can't substitute for their off-brand counterparts?
Nonsense! I'm INTP; I've never reached the same normative conclusion as someone else! In fact, I daresay I've never reached a conclusion!
Jokes aside, yeah that happens all the time. It often causes some confusion when my dad and I will be arguing for the same thing, but due to poor communication, we never realize it until we give up because we got nowhere.
If you were magically placed in the role of a character on the main character's squad in a generic war movie, what role would you have and what would happen to you? Do you survive the movie?
