comments like that (which i personally hate, it's undermeme tier praise) often prompts up conflicting thoughts on games
just saying something is art is really pretentious and goes more the ways "2deep4u" and sounds like it's more of an excuse to say for people who hated a game to say "dood ur mind just doesn't understand hehe"
i found many people around me to have a weird paradox where, if someone else praised something they liked to levels of exageration, the other person (depending on who they are, their current mindset, past experiences, and mood) would either:
> A) Go along and treat <whatevertheylike> with the exaggerated mindset
> B) Brush it aside, say something like "it's not that good" even though <whatevertheylike> is something special to them
> C) Agree, but when they get to experience the thing again, s/he starts to get really mixed feelings and starts awarefully denying everything in order to preserve their old experience, or starts to break the experience piece by piece
A is probably desperate for social acceptance and wants to share his/her experience or otherwise has no problems blindly loving things with others.
B can't share their experience with others because s/he's scared of having it ruined (probably those people who don't even have a MAL/gametrackingsiteorwhatever/favorites list on his social media profile) so they lie to others about their perception of their own special thing
C is the worst of the paradox, and it can almost drive some people insane for a few minutes with split thoughts and constant denial if the thing in particular is very important to them.
People who consider Yume Nikki their "own special thing" are oftenwise, NEET, hikko or socially inadequate, so they fall into all spectrums depending on their mindset, how deep they look into it, and the enviroment / people around the place they are posting / talking.
The thing about the audience is that they often have no sense of individuality if they are really fucking heavy NEET/isolated and base their thoughts on other people's opinions, but some start to doubt if it's their own thoughts that based their opinion, driving them into C) territory.
It's a really weird phenomenon, i could go on and on, but i think that's enough.
That harmless comment can sadly drive a vast number of people insane/unsure of their thoughts.>>6136
The special something in Yume Nikki for me is just the exploring and ambience. It feels fun and you find/hear something bizarre at every turn.
