    no i'm comfortable enough in myself to like being alone for some periods of time.


    that game sounds a lot like the movie I am Legend
    Based solely on being the "last person alive", yes I can see why. The reality is that it's much more different... and much more terrifying.



    Edit: alone time is balla.

    I think it's easier to fear loneliness when it appears in front of you as a realistic proposition, which I think it does for most people at least sometimes in their lives. It also should be acknowledged that there're different guises of loneliness: you don't have to be the last person alive to be lonely - it's enough to have a life filled with acquaintances whom you call friends, but can never truly connect with. Maybe sometimes that can feel worse.

    Nope; I like being tout seul.
    Though I do like the company of other loners, which is a strange kind of ironing ... I mean, irony :rolleyes:

    I am wondering if anyone else feels the same way as me
    Yes I know this thread's old now, shh.

    I used to feel like I could be alone forever. Just me against the world. But I met, well, people that I care for - I now know that I could never live a life of isolation.

    My girlfriend goes away for three weeks after Xmas - no time at all in the long run, but I already fear the loneliness...

    I watched the whole playthrough and enjoyed it but it was the ending that freaked me out. It took me so long to calm down

    Not really, I'm something of an introvert so quite happy in my own company and I find big, crowded social events a bit stressful.

    Weirdly though, if I spend more than a day or two alone I get really cranky and bored. So I don't think I'd cope well being permanently alone - I just like a break from other people once in a while!

    Alone time is something that is needed here and there (espesh by me)
    but I do need friends/people around to make my life exciting

    Alone forever although it's a medium possibility for me (I think), I don't fear it

    Lol. I can be alone for weeks on end and I love it. If its a self impose isolation then I like it, however if its because you are lonely and have no family or friends then of course thats horrible. But what I mean is, I dont understand people who cant spend a long time alone by themselves and constantly have to socialize, if you told me to stay at home for a month and not talk to anyone, I would be fine just watching films and listening to music and reading and stuff. lmao

    It's cliche but it's true - I don't mind being alone but I don't want to be lonely.

    I loved that LP because the game is so ridiculously immersive, and through Markiplier you can really feel the hardship in the choices you have to make. He provides a great narrative throughout the story that enhances the empathy you feel for the character, it's brilliant.

    Don't get me wrong, the game speaks for itself in terms of how immersive it is (especially, considering everything that preceded it, the ending), and to me it's the perfect "alone" game, if you catch my drift. You have Catherine, but she's not present all of the time... for the most part, it's a alienation from the comfort of others after being thrust, alone, into the unknown.

    And that I wouldn't like. Being alone is one thing, but being alone in an environment where nothing at all is familiar is something else entirely.

    Not really. I like being alone however, sometimes I feel tired being alone. It gets boring. Sometimes i feel like im being judged for it and pressure to not be.

    I love the silence that comes from being alone, I enjoy sitting in my room on my computer where it's so quiet I can hear the fan going
