I somewhat agree with Fryguy except for the idea that we live for ourselves and only for our own survival.
You are forgetting the impact your existance has upon others, the impact your existance has on the course of history itself.
Imagine if you were never born. Would the people you know be the same? Your family, what would they be like? Imagine your possible children or your childrens children. Somewhere along the line one of them could become a very important person in the world.
If you never existed this might never come to be.
So yes I agree we don't need a god. But don't just think we solely live our lives and that's it. I believe we all play a part in the history of mankind.
Maybe our role is insignificant now, but just imagine the possibilities if you were never born! It may have a great impact on history! That's enough to keep me going.
I didn't cover any of that because it doesn't have anything to do with what I said
Of course we can and do affect all those we interact with and the world is different for us being in it, but I don't believe this is the reason we exist. It's simply a product of us existing.
We exist to survive at a genetic level, but at the conscious level we usually have other things on our mind. We are capable of sacrifice, or choosing not to have children, or even something as commonplace as being gay. We have complex brains. We don't have to blindly follow our survival instincts, but that doesn't mean those instincts aren't there.
First Hulk movie sucked enormous green mutant balls. The second Hulk movie sucked even bigger balls because they didn't work out that noone on the planet wants to see a massive green muscly man bursting out of his trousers.
On the other hand; Vanilla Sky was a great movie! Discuss.
I think HALO is a pretty cool guy. Eh kills aleins and doesn't afraid of anything.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
