  • So the Millennial generation starts from 1980? A generation that stretches over 35 years seems way too broad as a typical 15yo has very little in common with a typical 35yo, heck even Generation X only goes from mid 1960s to 1979…

    Baby Boomers have lost every bit of their early creativity !!!Baby Boomers so fighting so hard to maintain the status quo that they must shut down any creative effort!! Boomers feel threatened by any creative movement that they force everyone to play it safe!!

    This vlog’s making me feel all kinds of weird.

    What you describe as a Millenial thing–being afraid to try at anything because of the disillusionment of youthful entitlement–isn’t just limited to those below 30. I’m a Gen Xer ten years older than you, and I’m totally feeling that myself–it’s never left me from youth. Constantly the feeling I get is I should have known all of life’s lessons by now or have some accomplished expertise in my own talents–but then feel shamed because of the fact that I’m learning from those so much younger than me. There’s nothing wrong with that inherently, but it can be overwhelming, a bit much even here. Don’t get me wrong, I love all you guys in the Booth, both staff and fellow fans, but when 90% of everyone here is early to mid twenties and I’ve got nothing of my own to contribute regarding either a serious internet social topic or a favorite nerd property, because I’m years older but far less experienced, wise, or sociable, that’s enough to want to quit trying.

    You asked, so I’ll give you an example or two. I’m a wannabe in a lot of areas, and one thing I wanted to be was a cartoonist. That’s why I’ve sometimes asked you about your own methods and tools, to learn a possible direction I could go into myself, and also know from someone’s who’s been there what I’d be getting into. Yet when someone tells me “oh, I can’t draw” and produces something of quality I can’t even touch myself (especially when they do it with only computer programs), it’s really discouraging, even if there’s no malice involved.

    Just as frequent though is the more positive flipside: when I see articles, videos, and personal updates about defeating personal or social difficulties (e.g. yourself and becoming a game developer despite extremist gaming community members’ behavior), it’s the break of sunlight in the overcast sky of the grand internet community. Recently one person sent me some feedback about a picture I’d recently sent which I thought was a throwaway, and that feedback was full of appreciation, saying just from looking at it how much time I sank into it. It’s a little something like that that makes me want to keep going–just like that convention pal who told you that you’re still a game developer with just the one program you made. If more encouragement and support such as that were more frequent…

    So getting to your main point, I think–about Millenials and failure–maybe it’s generational, but I’m proof that being a generation ahead doesn’t guarantee having your shit together. I gotta stop here because the connection’s acting up. Thanks for letting me vent a little and offer a kind of take on this.
