To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Doki Doki Literature Club. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of the basics of game design most of the jokes will go over a typical player’s head. There’s also Monika’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into her characterisation- her personal philosophy draws heavily from Japanese literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Doki Doki Literature Club truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Monika’s existential catchphrase ‘Just Monika’, which itself is a cryptic reference to the Yandere character archetype often used in anime and manga. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Salvato’s genius wit unfolds itself on their screens. What fools… How I pity them.
And yes, by the way, i DO have a Doki Doki Literature Club tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin’ personnel kid.
