How do you view the future of literary culture and of culture at large?
Im not very optmistic about it
The major change I think is that until 10 years ago literary events and institutions were in the hands of introspective, obsessive men who were their gatekeepers and had a strong sense of duty, history, reverence and tradition
Now they are all old and dying and they are being replaced by women of two types:
> young SJWs
> 35+ wine aunts
Both have a bent for mystical woo and both care more about partying and laughing and having a good time than reading
For example, the last 10 years most used booksellers from my town (its a middle town in Latam) have died and no one occupied their places. There are only smaller old book stores left and they wont survive the next 10 years
Literary culture "lives on" in workshops by the wine aunts about "write to free your inner goddess" or "karmic energetic writing" or some bullshit like that with plenty of pictures of the process to post on instagram
Speaking of which the shit Instagram recommends me about poetry is abismal. People writing random bullshit to appear deep
Anyway
I know there has always been bored wives doing bullshit cultural events for attention and fun, but at least the real culture was in the hands of men who really cared
Also all the bookstores of the town have also closed in the last 10 years
I am not against the women in literary culture in principle but what happened to the old duty bound men? Dont they make them like that anymore?

    Literature has been replaced by games. You are being a stubborn child by not exploring the beautiful, even deeper world of gaming, which is richer and more vivid than anything literature could have provided. You are just crying over the death of a primitive type of media and the only people who care about it are lame, old women, which is just like who you are, spiritually.

        Morrowind has more culture, more lore, more opportunity to actually display your OWN heroism and feats of cunning and strength than anything J.R.R. Tolkein ever wrote. The act of consuming literature is essentially a feminine pastime, allowing the author to inject his viewpoints and perspectives directly into your mind. A game on the other hand gives you the freedom to explore, learn and play in the world as YOU want. It's not even comparable and everyone not autistic or crippled by contrarianism moved on to this superior medium long ago. Grow up.

      I don't know what you're talking about specifically, because you didn't name anything and point it out- you just threw out vague terms like duty bound honorable men and ditzy woo woo girls that seems more like a personal anger towards society than a reasoned argument. We live in a world full of screens, which has changed the way people think and live. I think literature will change to reflect these conditions- celebrate them, push back against them, and everything else in between. But most people will probably not read.

          It's consumes, not subsumes. If you're going to try to get a rise out of people through words then at least learn how to use them properly.
          I think games will eventually eclipse books, but the medium is in its early stages so I think literature has the upper hand.

        >What games would you recommend that in your opinion rise to the level of literature?
        There first must be a distinction between art and literature because games compose a different medium, though they may share many similarities, depending on the game. There are some games that are art in of themselves, though they are not literary, and some that are both. There is also a greater store of great works of literature than there are games, though it must be acknowledged that literature has the advantage of age. That being said, here's some recommendations of more literary games:

        Pathologic is probably the most outstanding example of a game that rises to true literature. Primitive in some ways due to its age, but the storytelling and environment combined produce an experience that would be impossible to convey in any other format. Heavy influence of East European literature and general ideas relating to the Drama. I wouldn't recommend playing it as an introduction to games equalling literature because it's very complex, though it's worth experiencing at some point.

        Disco Elysium is one of the most lauded games in recent years, and for good reason. Extremely dense in its writing, and accusations of it being a glorified visual novel are not entirely inaccurate. However, what minimal gameplay aspect it does contain is essential to the experience, which is why I'll say it deserves a spot. The breadth of choice and the possibility of failure is enough to cement it as a game, and the wider game itself, the art, the characters, the music, goes a long way to creating a living, breathing world that feels real, which in my opinion is the point of a lot of art, creating real stuff from the imagination, not to mention the wider themes of the story.

        Pentiment is another game that is little more than a visual novel, moreso than Disco Elysium, but it has the same strengths of conveying a living, breathing world through its mechanics, artstyle, music, etc. which are the greatest advantages of games as a medium. Excellent portrayal of the medieval world and wonderful literary and historical references all over the place. I'd recommend this as a starter to more "literary" games.

        Those three are the most salient examples I can think of, but there's several others like Deus ex, Soma, Slay the Princess, Return of the Obra Dinn, that reach the level of literature to some degree, though I will emphasise that said degree varies, and games that do reach that level are extremely rare. Additionally, idiots praise awful pieces like Baldur's Gate 3 which is little more than cheap thrills in game form.

          "art games" are for midwits who revel in cannesbait cinematic tropes. the literary equivalent of overwrought New Yorker MFAcore. true ludo connoisseurs have long recognized, as critics of «le septième art» did in the early 20th century with respect to their medium, that the merit of a game is to be judged on the basis of its strictly ludic elements (what is often termed "gameplay" or "mechanics"), as this is what distinguishes the medium from literature, cinema, visual art... if you have any critical acumen whatsoever, you would recognize that games such as Quake 3, Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1-3, Tetris, or SM64 are far greater achievements in this respect than any so-called art game

          Do you have familiarity with game development? It's filled with "straight white males" wearing programmer socks that let the woke in, especially in an industry like gamedev filled with autists who crave group approval.
          That being said, I think many games were clearly inspired by existing art and literature, but as gamers get older they will just directly seek out the sources that inspired the games they played in their youth. Tasteful art direction can slowly guide consumers but it won't be enough when there's so much slop competing for people's attention, especially where video games and their fandoms are concerned.

        Those are the same things. But, games like Mirror's Edge and Disco Elysium have their own clothing designs available to buy, not just merch with a logo on a t-shirt. And video game cosplay gets more social media engagement than designer cat walk runways.

          Games have been around for all of recorded history. Whether it was playing with a hoop and a stick or playing with a controller that makes pixels on a screen move, games are not a new thing. Same with painting, same with language and stories, same with music, same with israeliteelry. Humans create art. The medium is just a way we categorize different forms of art-- it's not some hammer that comes along from outside of human experience, that wipes out other mediums that came before it. If it were, we wouldnt have music anymore, alongside books, alongside fashion, alongside interior design, etc. The fact that video games incorporate other art forms like music or fashion does not mean that those art forms no longer exist or have relevance to people. If that was the case, there would be 0 streams of video game OSTs, because people would have no reason to listen to music outside of the video game. If fashion in video games meant that fashion outside of video games was no longer relevant, people wouldn't be buying clothes anymore. You can't have it both ways, moron. If video games are the "best" art form, or render other art forms obsolete, then you can't point to examples of video games that use music, or photography, or cinematic cut scenes, or written dialog, or narrative, or any other art form. If it's incorporated into a video game, then any relevance or superiority the medium of video games has is owed to other art forms. People have always engaged with different forms of art, and if they didn't, those art forms wouldn't exist. People will continue to read books because they crave what books have to offer, just like they play video games because they have something else to offer. And, going against my point, video games will never reach the merits of books because games require too many compromises to get made. They're just money farming machines that are designed to get morons like you addicted to paying for stupid in game shit. You might as well argue that vaping is a superior artistic medium

A movie is a combination of photos and sound, israeliteelry is a combination of scripture and clothing, etc. As I said there are no hard lines between art forms.
            "Photography is dead" holy frick man are you living under a rock? There's gotta be more photos taken every fricking day than there have been in the history of photography because everyone has a camera in their pocket.
            I play games. I listen to music. I wear clothes. I watch movies. I look at photos. I look at paintings. I read books. There is no transcendent medium you fricking idiot. If you do anything besides play video games, you are engaging in other art forms. You are in your social media algorithm too much and believe the entire world only shares video game screenshots. Also, something being popular doesn't make it good. As Tupac said, crack sells way more than music albums, that doesn't make it good.

      The fact that this excites you so much smells of low IQ. Those are not "your own heroism and feats of cunning", but a couple of buttons the developer gives you, to let you play-act in a fantasy world like kids in a sandbox. Artistically and intellectually, it's empty.

      I'm well aware of what games can do or be, I wasted enough of my teenage years on them. In general, they give one the illusion of engagement while in fact turning off higher thinking. Books are just the opposite - that's why IQlets get "bored" just sitting and reading.
      That doesn't preclude the occasional interesting twist on the medium, like disco elysium. But for now the medium is overwhelmingly mindless slop.

        Tell me you didn't play the game without telling me you didn't play the game.

        According to you without any proof. You are spiritually feminine.

        You just have your head in the sand and are projecting your own opinions as being universally true. They aren't.

          You could have just said "let's agree to disagree" like a stumped boomer. There's zero argument in this post, which confirms low IQ.

            I mean, I can spell it out if you have trouble seeing it, regarding this post

            Tell me you didn't play the game without telling me you didn't play the game.

            >Tell me you didn't play the game without telling me you didn't play the game.
            In fact I did, back in the day, but that shouldn't matter at all; the idea that the "choice" whether you kill le bad guys with the epic sword OR the fireball OR as the heckin stealth archer, or you just "brew potions and build a house" for whatever reason, is an artistic advantage over books is plain moronic. It's a range of options the developers dangle in front of you, so you waste time with repetitive pseudo-activity. You gotta be underage to call it "displaying your own heroism".

            As to "lore", sure, lessons of vivec and all that has a certain literary quality, but that's just it: it's derivative of literatue, and would be even better as such.

            >According to you without any proof.
            Yes, it's my opinion, stated and argued in my post. If you think choosing whether to kill virtual baddies like rambo or like a sneaky assassin has artistic/intellectual merit, I'd sure love to hear what it is.
            >You are spiritually feminine.
            Meaningless.
            >You just have your head in the sand and are projecting your own opinions as being universally true.
            No, I don't. Does one have to write "imho" every time so you don't get triggered?
            >They aren't.
            And neither are yours. Now what?
            Not a single point that's not a variation of "your opinion is just wrong" was made.

            How is it "derivative" when it's literally an evolution beyond it? And you can't even spell the word LITERATURE so why on Earth do you think your opinion on the literary quality of one of the most played games in existence matters?
            The events that take place in the virtual worlds of games like Morrowind are unique and specific to the player. Very unlike how a book is read in pretty much the same way by every person who is fluent in English. So yes, it is "heroism", when a player risks their character's life and time in making choices interacting in these worlds.

            That's what you keep claiming, but it doesn't become true by repetition. Apart from your weird logic - why couldn't something be derivative of X and evolve beyond X? - the fact is that this lore fits very well within the more mystical fantasy tradition, resonating with Wolfe, Clark Ashton Smith, Dunsany, Lovecraft... my use of "derivative" isn't even to mean it's unoriginal, but that its qualities are of a literary kind and being in a game doesn't add to them. In fact, the great thing about the writers I mentioned is, one gets to the good stuff without wasting time with mechanics, grinding, fighting moron AI and doing fetch quests.
            >And you can't even spell the word
            Got me there. I shall commit sudoku out of shame.
            >The events that take place in the virtual worlds of games like Morrowind are unique and specific to the player.
            So are the circumstances of me eating, shitting and cooming throughout the week, but that doesn't make it artistic (except to the most depraved connoisseurs).
            Very unlike how a book is read in pretty much the same way by every person who is fluent in English.
            Tell me you don't read without telling me you don't read. Hey, this is fun!
            >So yes, it is "heroism", when a player risks their character's life and time in making choices interacting in these worlds.
            This is yet another thing, death doesn't really exist there because you will simply reload. There is no significance to those "risks". I guess there's hardcore mode, but in the end it only adds thrill, which is quite primitive as an artistic quality.

    One thing I realized about modern writing nowadays is just how monolingual and how badly dry it is. There’s no more subtly or imaginative use of syntax or language and it’s clear, and not just from the lack of use of it in writing, that most of these people aren’t proficient in their own languages; let alone any other to write in or use from these monolingual literary writers.

    You could be engaging in real literary culture, actually reading or producing something of worth, and yet here you are seething about women like the model midwit.

    Your sophomoric way of writing suggests you are in no position to appraise the state of 'culture-at-large' in any case.

    Harold Bloom you are not.
