There has gotta be some sort of adorable-sounding Japanese onomatopoeia describing the situation where you’re pulling a wheeled cart or suitcase and it just sort of sadly flops over on its side, and you’re still standing there holding the handle, side-eyeing it.
Much is said about the inability of modern, gadget-savvy people to stop taking pics and just put down their phones and tablets and experience life as it’s happening, in the moment. I’m usually not too bad in that regard, at least IRL. But I’ve realized that the PS4’s ability to take screenshots and instantly post them online has affected how I approach gaming. I keep finding myself hovering my finger over the Share button, waiting for a good shot to happen so I can click it. And sometimes I actually don’t feel like I’m “gaming in the moment”, if that’s a thing. It’s kind of surreal, because these are characters and events that don’t exist IRL, and yet it’s like I’m standing over them with a virtual camera phone waiting for them to do something neat. I do appreciate a good screenshot, but I don’t like that feeling.
