    You know, I sometimes ask myself the same question when I'm bored with the game I'm currently playing. Usually, around that time a game comes around that I find to be so incredibly brilliant that all my doubts are instantly swept away (at least for the time being). I'm looking at you, Borderlands 2.

    All MOBA games are evil and the punishment for playing them should be to spend a month in a room with other MOBA players.

    HoN players are a special brew. For me the game without rage is not the same. And if I'm winning, I trashtalk. It's innate. Always within the social/karma rules, of course, no "retard" or f bombs.

    I play(ed) that too, but socially. And won from time to time.

    The game is all about Yomi and minimizing risk.

    Well everyone seems to be enjoying themselves here rather that getting angry about things, so I think we have counter-trolled!
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    Having a discussion is being trolled now?

    Maybe the Op's question indicates they are looking for a way to make games more fulfilling, if so i'd suggest trying multiplayer games that require complex cooperation, as that's a skill that you can transfer to other situations.

    I was not a fan of Mr Jobs either



    The original question reminds me of the kind of thing you see in a newspaper or magazine - and as such falls in with the general rule for such things, the answer is almost always....



    NO

    NO
    Reminds me of of the general rule of thumb for scientific articles et al: If the title is in the form of a question, and the question can be answered with "no," don't write the article.

    Betteridge's Law. It should, really, only be applied to news sources (dunno what sort of Scientific articles have a question in their title, but they're likely sh*te if they do) and their headlines.

    About every third New Scientist and Scientific American article seem to do so, especially in their editorials, enough that the joke's been made before.

    I think we're confusing articles in a science oriented publication, and Scientific articles.

    If I meant peer-reviewed treatises, I'd say so. I meant the trade mags - y'know the stuff that's guilty of linkbait as much as everybody else.

    The OP hasn't chipped in so far with a response to peoples opinions, so I'd go with B0rsuks assessment.

    As regards the subject, I think the phrase 'mileage may vary' springs to mind. I think one of the positives that comes out of playing games is a degree of mental exercise at the end of the day, and certainly it can help you improve your organisation skills if you're doing MP/Co-op a lot as well.
