I definitely did all the stuff you mentioned, hunting down Knights of the Nine and beating the weapons and everything. It was 100-percenting a game kind of before that was a thing. I played the absolute HELL out of FFVII. So obviously I was into it at least to some degree. Read more

I don’t think either of you are wrong, definitely. I’m having trouble reconciling Pokemon — I’m not sure that audience really bleeds into the rest of the RPG audience too much.

I’m going to have to go look it up because it sounds pretty mind-bottling. :D

Yeah, I kinda realize that Portal speedruns aren’t, like, the new thing or anything. But somehow I never watched many, and just seeing NoirCat decimate things that I remember taking me SO LONG to figure out....
