I have a similar problem to river, all of my parent's kids are in the autistic spectrum and I'm no exception. I always "pretend" to be an actual person, but only for the sake of those around me. After I finished the game I tried really hard to get him to play, because I can never express my emotions to the extent that he desires and I thought her situation might help me to do so. I guess I have no idea how people really react because he'll claim that I'm implying  a certain emotion when I feel the opposite, and when I do try to express something I'm not comfortable expressing with words, it doesn't reach him.

Would this parallel with River's situation make this ironic/meta?

I'd say it's meta. When you boil it down, it's the same idea behind River showing John the paper rabbits: showing someone an object (or game in this case) to try and express a certain idea. I'd say this is a meta situation. How did he react to playing the game?

Two guesses:
a) She was replying to a different thread.
b) She's a bot that reposts an existing post from this board. There was one already the other  day.

Edit: Yup, repost from this very subforum.

Seems kinda sad that this topic didn't get more attention when it was posted.
River: *Drops hacky sack*
River: "Can you throw this is as far as where Anya's at?"
John: "I can try."
John: "(Now I'll amaze her with my feat of strength.)"
John: *Throws hacky sack into ocean*
River: *Runs to cliff edge*
John: "River! Stop looking at my awesome throw and get away from that ledge!"
River: *Backs into John and silently sits down*
John: "(...Nailed it.)"

I agree, sometimes these bots can give a topic more attention, when it originally didn't get much.

Meanwhile, I'm just curious about the original thread. Could someone link it? I couldn't find the replica of this in the first two pages, who knows where it is :/
Videogame developers are not gods that anyone should worship. I hereby decide that is my top existential reason to prove that horrible, horrible misconception, because that is becoming annoyingly rampant in every corner of the internet.  They can deserve critism, or thrashing even. It doesn't even need to be constructive critism. And even if you are a free game developer doesn't mean community is your personal ego farm.

Is it just me, or did Erenussocrates become a bot?
