I think difficulty increases can avoid too much controversy as long as they are not unique exceptions that ignore the underlying systems/fiction/authorial message. r n r nI 'm in particular reminded of the Detroit Megacity guards in early versions of N.E.O. Scavenger. These NPCs patrol the area around DMC, armed ...

That 's interesting, I didn 't see anything in this article about not doing anything that might possibly offend people. It even expressly says the content doesn 't necessarily need to be changed, merely that devs should be aware of the potential meaning of their content. The author does highlight ...

Okay, I have to say right off the bat that I 'm truly sorry for the length of my comments. It 's asking a lot for anyone to read that much, and that 's really cool of you that you bothered to do so. r n r nYes, I agree ...

I imagine that 's only because we 're not used to seeing it yet. There was a time when a person walking down the street talking to themselves was a rather quizzical sight as well. But now that we have bluetooth headsets, etc. and nearly universal mobile phone ownership, it ...

While I agree that abusing time costs is not much different from abusing monetary costs indeed, I also blogged here about this very topic a few years back , I would have to disagree that games that cost time are necessarily abusive for two specific reasons: r n r n1. ...

I appreciate the highlighting of the various ways that crafting can reinforce the fiction of a game, but I do wish there had been more discussion of specifically mechanically different crafting experiences. r n r nOn a related note, I was reminded by the section on Fire Emblem of crafting ...

Hmm, I don 't lurk the forums or theorycrafting sites, so I can only attest to mechanics I 've stumbled upon personally that is, all these examples are the really obvious ones, so nothing special here . But I 'm guessing there 's probably more out there But yeah, the ...

r nHi everyone. Firstly, I want to express my appreciation for the time taken to consider and respond to this post. Obviously, the subject matter is rather loaded, and it means a lot to me that effort was made to digest what appears to be my minority opinion. r n ...
