That's because a lot of the things people say just end up being more of rehearsed formalities, repeated points of interest, etc. But if you come at it with a genuine interest in how the other person's doing, I've found it can be a lot more interesting. Don't worry about what specific things you say, because then it ends up being less interaction, more "waiting for your turn to talk". Just open up asking somebody how things are going, and go from there. If they provide a substantial response, talk about that. If they don't, and just return some similarly generic response ("Not much, what's up with you?"), don't be afraid to talk about yourself. But after that, just remember to ask about them. If you were talking about your job, ask them about theirs. Schoolwork, same thing. Some new show you're watching/game you're playing...well, you get the idea. My point is, ask genuine questions, and answer questions genuinely. If you actually end up talking about something substantial that you can talk freely about, that's great. My best friends are the ones where that happens automatically. But you're not always going to be talking to your best friends, or even people you have much common ground with. But, either way, you're both people, you both have days/lives that have been going some way or another, so there's always something to talk about.

Quote from: SlowPokemon on July 02, 2014, 10:18:04 AMFrom everything I've heard, Twilight Princess.
Quote from: FierceDeity on July 02, 2014, 04:18:51 PMI loved both, but I preferred Skyward Sword for the score. A lot of people didn't like either art style, but I liked both for different reasons. Twilight Princess's just made everything seem so ominous and desperate, and that made me super invested in it when I was a kid. Skyward Sword's is, obviously, a lot lighter, so I feel like it was a better adaptation of the series's older aesthetics to newer graphics. Nothing about the gameplay of either particularly stands out to me from the rest of the Zelda series, but I do like Skyward Sword's combat more because, you know, less shitty motion controls. It may have gotten a bit arbitrary at times ("Ok, now you need to attack this guy from the one direction that he isn't guarding with his swords!"), but it still beats the wiimote flailing/button mashing prevalent in pretty much every other 3D Zelda game.As for exploration, I definitely did like the more expansive world of TP (it felt like Shadow of the Colossus at times, tbh). But I also liked that you revisit each area so much in Skyward Sword; it adds a level of autonomous existence to each zone ("You mean this area exists for a reason other than for me to get to this one temple to acquire this one item? MADNESS!"). I remember one of my friends was complaining how it has "less zones than ocarina of time" and uhhhhh nopety nope nope. Sure, there's no "shadowy area" or "spiritual area" or "light area" (which was really just the Temple of Time but meh), but each of the other three elements (except Nayru's now all about electricity for some reason) is covered in soooo much more depth. Also, if anybody actually counts the Kakariko Graveyard as its own "elemental zone", then I don't even know what to think anymore.But seriously though, THE SCORE, MY GOD. It's the first fully orchestrated game in the series, and everything just sounds so fucking majestic. Like, yeah, Twilight Princess had a really good score too, but...holy shit.
