I trained an AI on tens of thousands of ResetEra post titles and discovered how the world ends

What kind of fun?
The fun of genuienly hilarious generated thread titles or the fun of pretending Switch port begging is some sort of epedemic when that shit hasn't been the case for how long now?
I'm all for the former. The latter is obnoxious, and sadly the OP went with the latter for some reason.
Jesus dude. Lighten up a bit. It's just a harmless funny thread with a harmless title.

I had some real good laughs reading the OP and some posts. Then I read the amount of people just going "yeah Switch port begging is still rampant" and it just turned me off. When console warriors take this as an opportunity to make up some boogeyman again I just get annoyed, that's all really. If that's the definition of fun for those people so be it.

Great idea man, some really funny stuff there.

Also I'm liking how many people ITT are whinging about this little funny thing as if it's concrete evidence of problems or something.

I work on developing AI text-generating software, so I figured I'd try it on almost all ResetEra Video Games section post titles and generate some new ones to see what happens.

Should Of Generator said:
I want to play Dark Souls Remastered?
What is the best game design
Do you think Shin Megami Tensei V is a real Life
Is there any Rocket League Spoiler Thread
The poor machine ended up completely clueless as to how to use a question mark.
This absolutely checks out!

This is sad.

In all seriousness, the results are really amusing. If it's not too time consuming, could you try it with EtcetEra, as others have suggested?
And then as an added bonus, try with the old forum!

I don't mind the perfect for Switch meme at all.
What I mind are console warriors like these:
Checks out,

This forum is rampant with Switch port begging
Sounds about right. Place is obsessed with the Switch. Almost every thread turns into port begging.
So much Switch port begging, not really surprised.
Not surprising if true lmao

The switch port begging is stilll not under control lmao

It's kind of ridiculous too because no other platform is consistently port begging so constantly
Like, where does this shit happen except in their mind? "Almost every thread turns into port begging"?
Just lol. These guys read the thread title and went with it. Because if they had actually read the OP they'd realize it's not really the case.

I guess I can kinda understand your frustration. But don't let it ruin the thread for you.

Oh don't worry I already had good fun with it. I also don't want to ruin it for anyone else either, so I'll just bow out and read some of the titles in the OP again. You have fun as well!

Imagine telling people they should read the OP and after you did so yourself you realized I'm right and had to resort to basically "lol u mad?" instead. I'm not upset either.
The OP is full of genuinely hilarious stuff but to pretend they are representative of some sort of Switch port begging epedemic when most of the generated titles just aren't serves no purpose but console warring.
There's having fun with the generated titles and then there's fun with making some console wars shit up. I'd rather do the former, but that's me.

Please show me some examples of recent port begging. I'm waiting.
You won't find much. Because it catches you a warning.
it still happens

So, I was wondering what were the most used words by the AI.

So, by combining both pastebins (7000 titles created), you find the following :
-"switch" is the 8th most used word, behind "the", "a", "of", "to", "is", "in" and "and".
-"Game" is 9th
-"PS4" is 14th, "Xbox" 26th. but, combined with "xb1" it would be 22nd. PS4 combined with "playstation" wouldn't change its place.
-"nintendo" is also 21st, with "sony" being 85th and "microsoft" 217th.
-"E3" is 87th

Now onto games:

-"mario" is 35th (the mario series, most likely linked to mario tennis, mario kart and mario odyssey)
-"fantasy" is 97th, that seems high, but I can't think of anything other than Final Fantasy using the word. And with the various "ffVII", "FFX", "FFXIV" and other, it would be around 92nd place.
-"pokémon" is 243rd and "pokemon" is 176th, combined, they would be 101st.
-"souls" is 131st (caused by the dark souls remastered, but also by the rest of the series)
-"hearts" is 133rd (Kingdom Hearts)
-"redemption" is 158th, "rdr" and "rdr2" are negligeable, but combined, they would push it around 149th place
-"smash" is 152nd (Super Smash Bros Ultimate)
-"spider" is 160th, if we added "spiderman", it would be around 155th.
-"creed" is 164th (assassin's creed)
-"battlefield" is 171st
-"zelda" is 200th, with "botw" it would be 174th (Breath of the Wild, but also for speculations on the next game)
-"fortnite" is 195th
-"god" is 204th (God Of War)
-"hunter" is 247th (monster hunter world)
-"raider" is 273rd (Shadow of the Tomb Raider)
-"Halo" is 330th
-"metroid" is 334th
-"thieves" is 411th (Sea of Thieves)
-"fallout" is 455th
-"splatoon" is 460th
-"octopath" is 461st (octopath traveller)
-"bloodborne" is 565th

"Resetera" is 456th, "Era" is 290th !

Guys, please help. After reading this thread when I scroll the forum’s home page I keep thinking every thread was in fact created by OP’s AI

This AI is the best thing that happened to the forum. We need to turn it into the new Inspirobot and have it randomly post here.

Yeah, you're definitely not upset.
"There aren't actually that many Switch port begging generated titles"
"Did you read the OP?"
"Yes, there aren't. Can you show me where they are?"
"....lul u mad"
"Really? That's the route you go down?"
"lul u mad"

Stay classy.
