    Xzi, this is very very silly.

    Roguelikes have existed since the 1970s for god's sake. They are not going anywhere. No amount of difficulty options (which have been de facto present in many...

    I think plenty of them did. The issue that's made the Trinity so dominant is accessibility to casual and new players trying to combine with "challenging combat" for vets and so on.

    Personally I feel like full-time pure healing is a separate role from support. I mean, it's a supporting role, for sure, but the experience of playing a pure healer in a game which requires...

    This seems like nonsense to me, having played a lot of both.

    GTA IV, yep, you're 100% right. Total grim downer, job-like etc. Liberty city is a dark, creepy place full of hateful people.

    What you're describing is not "democratic" game design, which would involve everyone having an equal voice and voting and so on (which pretty much never happens), but merely "bad" or "lazy" game...

    I have 20/20 vision, and I sure as hell can - but then HD vs SD isn't just down to spotting individual pixels, is it? The overall image you see is quite different even if you can't differentiate...

    The whole setup screams "Typical Valve first-time bed-shitting" to me. I mean, every time Valve try something new, it's a sad fuck-up. They've got a brand new, risky, unproven technology, that they...

    Defender's Quest 1 was totally amazing. It's good to know the sequel is heading the same way!



    Doesn't surprise me. Mages are still more overpowered, though, in that they can deal with...

    Er, um, how is what I said confusing? Skyrim is the biggest CRPG of the last decade. It sold way more copies than any other one (20 million by Jan 2014 and it's STILL often in Steam's "best sellers"...

    I have a fall-through procedure when it comes to selecting a class in an FRPG.

    1) Does the game actually support classes which are true hybrids (i.e. not tanks, healers, or DPS, but something...

    I feel like Eight Rooks is kind of obsessed with his self-imposed "standards" in a way that reminds me of myself as an older teenager. I got pretty annoyed with rubbish like Terrys Goodkind and...

    The world-building in TES, including Skyrim, is consistently pretty good-to-great by CRPG standards. More to the point, there's tons of stuff in Skyrim which isn't about the system, but is about...

    Most games are on a continuum between the extremes, too.

    That doesn't seem at all true to me, living in London. I mean, I think it might be very regionally/culturally specific or something.

    London, Middle Class, there's no question that Sega was...

    I don't disagree with anything here per se, but I wonder what use realizing this is unless you accept that your game is attempting to speak and/or sell to people/audiences (who you term "critics")....

    I'm going to ignore your inability to stop putting your own arguments in my mouth, so I've cut the rest. I know you don't like what I'm saying, but most of what you don't like is your own invention....

    By plot I'm talking about what actually happens in the game. The events of the game. Plot can get in the way by constantly having very artificial, fixed things happen (even without cutscenes), which...

    I don't think anyone has said that, though. Except, ironically, Eight Rooks, who is arguing against something no-one is really saying.

    Games with both a story and rules, that one can play by one's self are, in fact, pretty new.

    I mean, most of human history, we have four modes of "gaming":

    If you'd looked when I'd originally said, it was front and centre, but I'll find the stuff later. :P Virtually every balance-related thread at least touches on it, last I looked.

    External ones are poorly balanced, too, to be fair, but they help your enemies, so it's less of an issue, whereas internal ones do not. Both are the equivalent of many buildings. Guarantee you they...
