Let 's go there. Let 's talk about the biggest game of 2016. r n r nYou can 't be serious that you didn 't even read the first line of the article before posting this

Free to play games generally come in three styles: r n r n1. Competitive pay to win games where those that don 't pay are farmed by those that do. This creates stress for non-payers who are going to be easily victimized by payers regardless of skill level. This is ...

I agree with Steve that meta-game progression systems would significantly improve retention and conversion in casino-style games, and have also argued such in the conversations I 've had with studios in that branch of development. At the same time, I can see how this would be a hard sell since ...

I 've been promoting gender neutral games for some years now as I think the potential gaming budgets of women are going largely under tapped. I 've also been saying that women are less interested in competitive play than men, based primarily on differences in testosterone levels, and gender differences ...
