What makes a good game?
I don't know if any of you guys have actually looked at ChocoPi's game theory articles, but I think they are fantastic.

Read them.


So, hey, this is a place where we can discuss things that we like or dislike about certain games, or would like to see in future games:

Social vs. non-social
Moderated vs. unmoderated
Balance vs. Imbalance
Game mechanics that appeal to different player styles - Timmy, Spike, Johnny
Play time - short, medium, long
How to maximize replayability
How important is player individuality/customizability
Fun vs. meaning in games
Economics
Combat: essential or not?
Favorite mechanic of your favorite game, and why


We can talk about Extra Credits videos or Sirlin articles or ChocoPi's blog posts

Broad topic is broad.
