Author Topic: What makes you stay?  (Read 3436 times)

just occasionally come back to see what's new. i guess it's really just nostalgia since when i was younger and this was like the only game i played when i was younger back in 2011-2013.

i've only ever managed to fully "join" three communities in my entire life, Blockland being #1, and the other two were not nearly to the same extent as this game.
at one point i was spending every single day of my life in this game and on these forums, 24 hours a day, talking with Blockland friends ingame or on MSN Messenger.
my life completely fell apart not long after finding this game, and being home schooled at the time, this was the only place i had to socialize and feel "at home".

so for years afterward, Blockland would be where i literally and metaphorically called home, and for that i will always feel some sense of belonging here- even though the community i knew has moved on and i don't really have a place anymore.
logging into the game and joining a server feels like driving back to the old neighborhood where you grew up and feeling a melancholic nostalgia seeing new and old faces, new and old houses, new and old roads, feeling like you've moved on physically but never really left mentally.
Holy stuff this, all of this. I'm not quite sure what it is about this game or this community that makes it stand out, but everywhere I have gone just doesn't hit the same as the Blockland community. This place really does feel like a home.

it's like a home but your parents are narcissists and all your siblings hate you and also each other

I am sorry thatís your perspective.
Though a onslaught of retardation is inevitable on any forum, Iíve witnessed empathy here. I donít believe most of us hate each other.

We all appreciate each other if we appreciate the game, because at the end of the day Blockland is Blockland because of the community.

its cool to come back and see what happens in the community every now and then. i make plenty of blockland art in blender bcus its feels nostalgic and nice to make up stories and paint them in 3d like i used to as a kid while roleplaying
u still a big bully?

brainrot

spent too much time on here as a wee lad and now i can never forget about this community even if i've expunged everything i've done here from my memory

I spent so much time here back in the day, good memories etc, it's nice to come back and feel the nostalgia.

although it's weird there's a lot of people I don't recognize, maybe it's cause avatars are different or something. doesn't help that the forums not being the old theme confuses my boomer brain

it's sad how much the forums have slown down, honestly some day I expect to pop in after four or five months away and find that forum.blockland.us won't load :(

spent too much time as a child playing this game that got me to a point of not leaving it ever, i come back now and then but don't play it consistently like i used to back in 2011-2016

brickadia doesn't hit the same way that bl did in its peak, and i find myself just not enjoying it at all. bl is the only community that i think i've ever gotten fully into
