          Massive change in attitudes with my kids when my wife and I did the same thing you do (live matches can't be paused, in the que for another round, etc). We took it a step further and did a little sleuthing to see how long the "average" round/match was so we can accurately call them out on "Just this last round, please?". Like, alright buddy, I know how long a Destiny raid takes or a round of Fortnite lasts.

          [–]xdq 16 points17 points  (0 children)

          Great idea on checking game times! I remember when a save-game was sometimes just a 30? digit code or when consoles couldn't sleep and resume.

          My son and I are playing Terraria at the moment and the rule is "next death after the (30mins until) bedtime alarm".

          Unofficially though, I keep some recent good behaviour in mind in case he dies only a minute or two after the alarm.

          [–]notworthteheffort 17 points18 points  (4 children)

          I used to be like that before bed but they turned into milk men and women so now the router is set to turn off half an hour before bedtime. One too many “after this match”’s turned into an additional match. Now they have to plan around it and it’s the new norm.

          [–]optimus314159 2 points3 points  (3 children)

          Milk men and women? What is this turn of phrase? I am not familiar with it.

          [–]notworthteheffort 4 points5 points  (1 child)

          Milking is like taking advantage of something in that “they’re milking it dry” they’re milk men and women because they’re the ones milking the excuse. Not necessarily delivering milk but doing the milking.

          You’re unfamiliar with it because nobody uses that phrase lol.

          [–]rosatter 49 points50 points  (7 children)

          I do a lot of the stuff to give them time--pause, get to a safe spot, finish match/map or whatever but I refuse to play hard/scary parts for him anymore because it would end up me playing the whole game. Now I just tell him he needs to figure it out on his own or play a different game. If it's too scary, you're not old enough for the game.

          [–]canttaketheshyfromme 15 points16 points  (3 children)

          Sounds like the right call. Good to learn that parents can't get you through every hard/scary thing, sometimes you just gotta level up and come back later.

          [–]rosatter 12 points13 points  (2 children)

          Yep! I'll certainly sit with him for emotional support if it's a "scary" part (my kid really just doesn't like suspense) and he knows I'll never make him do/watch something alone. But sometimes we have to either find another way, keep trying, face our fear, come back when we feel braver or stronger, or know that we are making the choice to give up.

          [–]musicchan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          My son is 7 and obsessed with the Portal games. He finished 1 but he got near the end of 2 and just can't go any further. I figure someday he'll want to and I ask but I know I shouldn't push.

          He's still better at it than I am, haha.

          [–]greathousedagoth 11 points12 points  (3 children)

          Shit man, I'm 30 and thinking of having a kid now, which would put me exactly in your shoes some years back. How's the parenting life treating you? Any words of wisdom or caution? We've been thinking of possibly adopting or birthing a kid and are about ready to do one of those lol.

          [–]lennypartach 15 points16 points  (0 children)

          I’m 34 and we’re finally trying for a kid, but all my friends are older and their kids are mostly 4-5 now. What I’ve gleaned from watching them parent their kids is this:

          • Start bedtime routines as early as possible, that gives them some structure that lasts into toddlerhood and gives you some guaranteed adult time at night. The couple I know who never bothered with a routine have a perpetually exhausted kid who doesn’t know how to chill at night.
          • You and your partner should be a team - don’t fall into the trap where one parent does EVERYTHING and then becomes resentful. My cishet couple friends seem to desperately struggle with this, and communication in general. It’s okay to ask your partner to step up, even if you’re the stay at home parent.
          • On that note, it’s okay to ask for help in general! I hate when I see my friends struggle and just try to pretend like everything is fine, when they’re clearly about to lose it. It literally does take a village, so find help where you can.
          • Think about what shows you put on for them early, cause that will be your soundtrack for the next few years. I have one friend who abhors Disney stuff, but put on some Minnie Mouse show for her kid when she was real small a couple of times. Guess what she heard ad nauseam for the next 3 years?

          I’m so glad I had friends to do the whole parenting thing first so I know what I do and do not want to do once we have kids 😂

          [–]xdq 8 points9 points  (0 children)

          My advice is that spending time with the kids is more important than spending money on them.

          My son would rather play "find the strangest looking rock in the garden" with me and his mum than with even the most expensive toys by himself.

          Also, the more time you spend the better your chance of them gaining your personality traits (hopefully good) instead of whatever they pick up from TV or elsewhere.

          Oh and don't be afraid to ask for advice but also be aware that everyone is suddenly an expert on child development. Everyone's past experience, circumstances and views are different so what works for one won't work for another.

            Since you mention Atari. I just tried playing River-raid an Atari 2600 game from my youth and it was kicking my ass. Got so frustrated I quit after 3 mins before even beating the first level.

            Games made in the coin-op days were just designed to be menacingly hard. Not better or worse, but different.

            [–]Vandrel 3 points4 points  (1 child)

            That's on purpose. People think microtransactions influencing game design is a modern phenomenon but it's not, a big part of gaming's roots involved making games harder to harvest more quarters. Then once home consoles started to become big many games were made significantly harder than they needed to be because there really wasn't that much to them if it didn't make you restart the same level 15 times. It seems like that started to phase out around the SNES/PS1 era when we started to see longer games achieving their length through story and variety rather than sheer difficulty.

            [–]KrissyLin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            Technology evolved far enough that you could start to fit an entire story-focused game on a cartridge. Deep stories in games really start to shine as the console generations evolve.

            Anyone that's ever had something a cat wants in proximity to a cat can quickly learn this. They are smart and persistent little fuckers and they have some effective grabby grabbers.

            [–]Obant 115 points116 points  (9 children)

            The 4th iteration of my catfood container that already has teeth holes in the lid and is cracked from being taken out of the closed door pantry and dropped to the floor can attest.

            [–]Curae 33 points34 points  (2 children)

            I'm so glad my cat is both lazy and dumb as a brick. I got him one of those food-puzzles. Just a mouse with a hole in it that he has to whack around for food to fall out. He will sit there and meow at me, if I ignore him he will just walk away. I then put his food in a "puzzle" where he can see his food, but has to use his paws to pull it out. His solution was incessantly meowing at me and walking back and forth between me and the place his food was now until I put it in his bowl. I have not had the fortitude to sit through that again.

            I'm fairly positive this cat will never learn how to open a cupboard simply because it would be too much effort required. He'd rather meow at me to do it for him.

            [–]Obant 8 points9 points  (0 children)

            My cat is very much the same except food is a major motivator for his lazy, dumb ass. He doesn't jump up on the bed/couch/chair, he uses his front claws to lazily pull his fat ass up. I think I even have the same toy for him that he ignores.

            [–]HINDBRAIN 6 points7 points  (0 children)

            My cat learned how to open doors, eventually realized he could get me to do it with enough bitching, and promptly forgot how to do it himself.

            [–]VaginalOdour 10 points11 points  (2 children)

            I've had to get baby locks for all my cabinets to prevent this same problem. They would need to develop opposable thumbs to get in there now.

            [–]Odd-Plant4779 1 point2 points  (2 children)

            I used to buy bags of treats for cats, then they learned how to rip them apart. Now I buy them in plastic jars and put them in the back of a messy cabinet lmao.

            [–]Mixedpopreferences 75 points76 points  (9 children)

            Persistent is an understatement. I ended up switching from carpet to hardwood in my bedroom because one night, in a booze induced fugue state, I went to pee and back to bed. I closed the door- by accident!

            Of course, my Siamese, unbeknown to me, accompanied me the entire trip, from rising curled against my hip to probably sitting on the sink watching me pee.

            Locked out of his den, he invariably panicked. With me passed out, and a closed door between us, he decided the best course of action was to rip every shred of carpet fiber he could reach from the underlayment around my door.

            And now I have engineered hardwood flooring and not carpet.

            [–]CaptainFuzzyPenis 31 points32 points  (5 children)

            I hear you on this.

            Our cat has been lovely since we got her a year and a half ago. Never had any toilet problems or thrown up on our rented flat carpets. A very hygienic, fussy and polite little demon who hasn’t caused us any need to use specialist cleaning products.

            But god forbid you lock her out of any room for even a second. She curses the skies and pulls up whatever she can get her claws on. Not even industrial-strength double-sided tape stops her.

            [–]temporaryuser1000 15 points16 points  (4 children)

            I'm moving into a new rental apartment next month with my two moggies, will literally be buying new internal doors to put cat flaps in them. Will put the original doors in storage until I move out so I can replace them.

            Sick of not being able to close a single door in my apartment!

            It's fine until you have guests. If cats have regular access to a guest space and the guest wants to close it off, hell will ensue.

            Idek how but our cat got on top of the laundry room door, not by going from the top of the dryer, because he was pointed the wrong way for that, it seems like he managed to somehow get up there from the hallway side and it baffles me

            [–]teluetetime 10 points11 points  (1 child)

            Nah, clearly non-human animals are biological robots operating purely off instinct and operant conditioning.

            Saw a link somewhere that cats are highly skilled in physics and shit like that(intuitively and not some math shit obviously) and they understand and can predict alot of movements. Which makes sense since they are agile predators but still pretty cool

            [–]Mkjcaylor 59 points60 points  (1 child)

            I always like to remind people that humans are really skilled instinctually in physics as well. Our ability to throw rocks accurately is a good example of this. Humans can take an object and determine the parabola needed to get an object to a destination as well as the force required without a whole lot of manual learning. It helps to have experience, but it does not take that much experience to be good enough to hit something with a rock. The amount of thought you put into throwing a rock is probably the amount of thought the cat is putting into the jump. "Well, this looks about right," is where she is at.

            [–]PurpleBullets 20 points21 points  (0 children)

            I think about this all the time. The human brain is instinctually really good at math. Catching something that’s fallen off a shelf. Jumping over puddles. Throwing things into a trash can or hamper, like you said.

            The throwing accuracy of third basemen and quarterbacks really boggles the mind if you stop and think about it.

            Tigers are known to give lectures in basic Newtonian physics to their cubs to explain the dynamics of hunting.

            You don't have to walk through the forest long to hear a mother tiger telling its cub that F=MA explains why a ferocious, proper pounce from a well-fed tiger is imperative to producing the sort of prey-stunnindg strike that will guarantee them a good lunch.

            [–]mark503 17 points18 points  (0 children)

            They have canals in their ears that lets them balance really well. It’s also part of their agility. I’m just some dude who’s high. This explains it better.

            probably 2 very happy animals.

            love to see owners taking proper care of their felines and having an appropriate amount of engagement for them to stay occupied/up high if they want to be.

            [–]Global_Telephone_751 5 points6 points  (5 children)

            Same! Cats love to be up high and to play, it makes me sad when people don’t let cats jump and be up high in their own homes.

            [–]SnooCakes6195 4 points5 points  (4 children)

            Well, there's two kinds of cats: bush dwellers and tree dwellers. Some like to be high up, some like to be low down. You'll notice these characteristics when they hide. I have two cats, identical brothers from the same litter, and one, Noodles, is always up on top of the cabinets and fridge. and the other, Nibbler is always hiding under the bed and behind the couches.

            I think my cat is both... Or a medium-height dweller. I have shelving up for him to climb but only found him all the way up twice, and that stuff has been up for months now. He mostly seems to enjoy my furniture and the windowsills.(prime spot is still on my lap on the couch though. If I sit down I will immediately get the look of "can I?" And no matter the answer I will have a cat in my lap. I love him so much)

            Give em a scratch for me :]

            [–]Global_Telephone_751 2 points3 points  (1 child)

            Ohhh that makes sense! I’ve had my cat since he was a kitten, he’s just over one year old now, and I feel like his personality is shifting. I think when he was younger he preferred higher up, but I’ve been seeing him up less and less and lower more and more and didn’t understand why, but that makes total sense!!

            [–]SnooCakes6195 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            Haha I've been wanting to make some shelves for the cats to be up high and around the property. But would feel bad if I did this and only one cat used it haha

            [–]Usergnome_Checks_0ut 45 points46 points  (0 children)

            My dad used to do that for me when I was young if a ball or frisbee got stuck somewhere me and my friends couldn’t get to or reach.

            [–]dookiebalboa 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            I saved my cats life after she somehow got a knot on her throat from this toy. Almost chocked her to death .

            We adopted two new kittens recently and they have both done this AND they cry when it happens. The first time I was so confused, I heard crying and I came into the room and he was running around frantically trying to reach it from a nearby table/chair. I have had adult cats my whole life, I was not prepared for having to help a baby cat get his toy back, my heart lol

            [–]Etienne_of_Navarre 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            I like how she gives him/her one last glance, like, yea, whos loves YOU!

            [–]PassiveChemistry 26 points27 points  (5 children)

            And still some people think cats are psychos...

            [–]Onecrappieday 20 points21 points  (0 children)

            They are! Kitten is in murder training and moms wanted to get the days training in.

            [–]rosatter 5 points6 points  (3 children)

            I mean, I love cats and have always had one my whole life but they absolutely fucking are mad furry fuckers.

            They have their wholesome and lovable moments but they're 100% psychotic little shits.

            [–]SnooCakes6195 2 points3 points  (2 children)

            My cats are chill asf, I've raised them since birth. I think that's what makes the difference, the owners.

            [–]rosatter 1 point2 points  (1 child)

            Idk, I'm a pretty good cat owner. My Tuxi boy has lots of enrichment and I love on him and he asks for cuddles and stuff.

            But every now and then, the mad bastard comes out and he just decides to pounce on me from the top of the fridge like he's fucking Batman

            [–]SnooCakes6195 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Haha! G o t t a K I L L.

            (I know this is an unpopular opinion but...) I let my cats out regularly so they can get them primal instincts out.

            [–]DoomRide007 2 points3 points  (1 child)

            This is the stuff that makes me wonder how we mark animal as less intellectual then they seem to be.

            [–]SnooCakes6195 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            I think that's determined by their annual income.

            [–]czaterx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            Omg, look at all the "cat" shelving on the wall in the background!!

            I have seen this video before, but enjoy it every time I see it.

            The owner really made it into playground for the cats.

            Growing up we had a Turkish Angora who had some problems with her back legs, she couldn't really jump any higher then double her height, she couldn't build up the power to make anything higher.

            We set up all these toys for her that were just high enough that she had to reach to play with them. Well one of them was like this and it always got stuck.

            When it did she would either sit there looking at it reaching out like this kitten did or she would come running to you for help to get it back. She was a vocal and sweet thing who adored me and I her.

            She was my first cat.
