RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

-SoulRiser

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Fucking confusion how does it work

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.

7. TES Morrowind

Shenmue 1 & 2 <33333333333333
Fallout 3
Portal 2
Tomb Raider
L.A. Noire
Alan Wake
Luigi's Mansion
Amnesia: Dark Descent
Silent Hill 2
Final Fantasy X (The best one in the series, by far)

I can't help but feel that COD and Half Life are extremely over-rated.

With all your lies, you're still very lovable.

I always check this thread and scroll through and I get to a post and I'm like, "No way, this guy likes the same stuff I do!" and then I check and it's my own post because I'm a stupid douchebag.

I've got Heavy Rain, cost me about $35. I haven't played it yet but my little brother has and said it was okay.

RE: Your Top 10 Favorite Games EVAR

10: Age of Empires
This is one of the best strategy games ever made, maybe even THE best, bar none. This game got me hooked on strategy games when i was still young. Really, a timeless classic.

9: Psychonauts
A superb platformer, but also with awesome action and graphics. Every single little detail has been worked out, and the story can make you laugh and cry.

8: Just Cause 2
An awesome game, this game is just the ticket when you want an entire world to play with and completely destroy. There are also some really funny jokes, and the sheer amount of things you can do in this game makes you come back again and again.

7: GTA San Andreas
Great game, one of the best of an era. The plot is both good and extremely funny, and everywhere in the gameplay and the game world you can see a huge amount of this gritty humour.

6: Team Fortress 2
The best multiplayer action you can have online. It combines pure adrenaline with classic Valve humour.

5: Bioshock
This game combines awesome action and customisability with a truly tragic plot, and the environments make this game look like a work of art.

4: Red Alert 3
This game is a beast of a strategy game, with a massive amount of possible strategies, and of course some zany humour thrown in.

3: The Sims
The best simulation game ever made, it is the perfect game for those wanting to play god. It is also a great way to vent your anger by having all kinds of bad things happen to the sims Evillaugh.

2: Left 4 Dead 1 & 2
This game trumps Team Fortress 2 as one of the best multiplayer games ever, where teamwork is actually needed, and there are always fair chances for every player.

1: Fallout 3
Maybe the best game ever created, it combines brilliant action with a great setting and atmosphere, and the story is also pure awesomness. Only Skyrim might be a better game, but i will see for myself!

4.Age Of Empires ( Was fun when my cousin let me play it in his PC)
5. Worms ( WAS SO MUCH FUN KILLING THE WORM ENEMIES)

7. Stronghold 2 (I hated Olaf, he always destroyed my kingdom)
8.Call Of Duty Black Ops ( The campaign was ok, but ONLINE is always the same shit now, but zombies, it was fuckin fun)
9.Minecraft (Thanks to the mobs, I always put torches when I'm underground mining)
