My friends. Today I played "Dark Forced II". After 6 hours of trying to get it to work I thought "wow, this game is complex, the level design is complex and it has puzzles that i get stuck on".
Then I think of KOTORand I think "why is this getting more praise? It's boring in comparison".
I came to the conclusion, many people who played KOTOR, never experienced Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and thus have no jumping point for comparison. This was a great conclusion to an enduring internal conflict.
Are you happy with game design (mechanics and levels) becoming increasingly streamlined or would you prefer more complex, ntellectual games designed primarily for for adult minds?
