    I played Gunpoint the other day. I had a bit of fun with it, but was quite disappointed as I think it could have been so much more than it is. I feel like I played a really well-polished proof of...

    This should be true, but I've played plenty of ports with the mouse input fucked up so badly I might as well be using a gamepad.

    Surely it's more that they play them like games, and as games (in the narrow sense) MMOs tend to be shithouse. You said yourself that "MMOs are forum communities with GUIs"; is it really a shock that...

    You guys are scaring me a little with all this talk of 'patience'. These games at least have strafe-jumping and a rocket launcher, right?

    Fair points, but I'm a bit of a curmudgeon when it comes to modern gaming (not all of it of course, but say the trendline followed by big-budget 3D games), so I won't really be holding the Thiefs up...
