  1. I just wondering today, did doom (or game in general) modding could be defined as a hobbyΒ like drawing, doing sports, walking, reading, playing chees or such things?


    Sure is a thing that keep your brain occupied for quite a long time and that challenges you and the other people on this... But I think it misses something to be a proper "hobby" imho, not sure what.

      @Nine Inch Heels I dunno, me sitting in a darkened room, listening to music that isn't mainstream, making a level for a 24 year old game, and programming scripts for it while I eat Cheetos seems pretty nerdy :-P


      Well, ok I don't eat Cheetos while I map...


      Though I also think what constitutes nerdom and geekdom has changed in the past decade.

      I think I should have phrased it differently, I explicitely said it misses the "not nerdy" aspect. But it's kinda easy to get confused over how I construct these abominations that I call "sentences" at times.


      That's the thing though, it's nerdy... So when you talk to people there's a good chance that amping/modding is less of an "accepted main stream hooby", and more of a "nerd activity", when in fact it's about as creative as drawing a picture on canvas, or writing your own music, etc.


      That being said, I consider it to be a creative outlet, just like any other, however nerdy it looks "from the outside".
