Wikipedia seems to think most of them would be classified as "Symphonic Metal" but also uses "Gothic Rock", I would say they have elements of both so I'd suggest looking into both genres if you're looking for new things to listen to.

Sorry to nitpick right out of the gate, but could you clarify "engaging with people in a meaningful way"?
Well I was antisocial and I also was barely even starting to understand feelings like sympathy and empathy, but basically, before that, I lived with my parents and what I didn't have I would steal but once I developed a bit of empathy it started to feel empathy and had to work interacting with people became more important, so I actually started talking to people, it was difficult and extremely difficult but my hands refused to steal anything because I kinda felt bad about it.

Basically, I was very much amoral and I developed some kind of morality and ethics code and that changed the way I saw the world and engaged with people, I started talking to people and caring about them though I did keep my distance, but I started to genuinely listen to what they had to say and was pretty invested in their well being, when my neighbour died and his wife was having financial difficulties I shoved all my money below her door in an envelope when no one was home so no one would know I did it, I pretty much did a 180° in my attitude though I do continue to be kind of an asshole and extremely rude, my intentions now are genuinely good while before they were not.

My advice to you, would be to not see it as mission you should fulfill, or a burden to bear alone. They decide their own lives in the end. You should be most important to you. If you feel the need to disengage, you should do so, albeit gently if you can. Start by saying you have something do so you can't this time, but you'll hear them out next time. Ask if they have talked about this with another concerned or relevant party. Prioritize and evaluate whom you'd most like to keep being involved with and who not. Absolutely don't get in between best friends, family, lovers or parents. If some people come as a group, but you feel uneasy with some, internally debate the issue and either accept them, or leave them. Plenty more fish in the sea.
They do decide their lives but they are dumb inferior creatures and I do feel pity for them, I feel I should help them but the truth is I do not understand their primitive feelings half of the time, joking aside, I mean I do have a huge ego and I do think most people are inferior to me but I generally do try to help people...

I'm not really sure I can not do it, maybe I should save up and skip town again, sounds like it'll be easier.

I'm also in the camp of not caring about CoD, but this video does seem well thought out and Houseman did a fine job with the reading.

My guess would've been orchestral perhaps.
Wikipedia seems to suggest piano/symphonic rock so they might be a good starting point

I can actually understand your situation. Back in school, I was always the designated friend for unburdening ones soul to. In my case, they didn't really want actual advice so much as a non-judging ear and some kind platitudes. That said, if you feel that your advice could nudge things in a better direction, you are always free to give it (and they to ignore it).

I'll be frank as well. I DON'T trust people either. Instead of giving trust when needed, I simply accept that things could go wrong. A Devil May Care attitude sort of. I try to do as much as possible by myself, and ask for help in a manner that downplays it's importance and thank them profusely so they won't feel the need to think of them being one up on me. Not that I don't help other people, I do so frequently. I just don't expect any reward in kind.

I'm also earnest for the most kinds and don't offer empty social lies if silence or a subtle/gentle hard truth will do.
I also don't discuss most of my problems with family or friends (If I had any). I'd rather be open about those with strangers on the internet. Like my attempted suicide as a kid.

I'll have to echo Kaleion. Not much for shooters.
I'd also add that Lets Play's isn't really my thing either.

Still! Nice work though!

Man, both Signa and Houseman have really deep, mellow voices.
*Jealous*

Sorry guys I've been super busy, with troubles of all kinds, financial, social, proffesional and so on, and due to my misery magnet I am also tasked with listening and comforting everybody else from their personal woes and troubles, I think I have a special ability that allows people to project their problems onto me and assume that I relate to them enough to understand them, even though in reality I am unable to understand a lot of things.

But anyway, none of this is important, it's just that interest for this game seemed fairly low and I'm also busy so I stopped paying attention to it.

Take care of your real life first. That's a given. So given that we probably don't want to pressure anyone into anything, not that I can speak for anyone but myself..
The interest is likely genuine though.

Hope you get clear skies from here on out (and just enough trouble to keep it interesting).
I know from back when I had friends how being a sympathetic ear can be.

We have time, if nothing else, so lets keep this on the back-burner until we've all got a free weekend.

Is there a specific genre name for "singer + piano and strings?"

Examples:

I don't really care for CoD especially since Shooters aren't really my thing but the video itself was good and Houseman's VO was a surprisingly good read, good job on the first video.
