    If it’s a game about giving, does that mean it’s gonna be free?

    Another piece of shit “””””relaxing”””””” game from these cocksucker developers. I couldn’t give two shits about their terrible games and I feel sorry for its current installbase wasting their time and money on this trash.

    Question what do you called games that doesn’t do violence or sexual themes or both?

    Diverse games = Shitty games. Before you go red in the Face I brought journey. And it was No fun just You only you No real danger.

    And that was 5 minutes in, that what regression left SJW want you to play.

    They’re pretty cool, I liked Flower and Journey, my whole family has played through and liked Flower and Journey, I feel like their appeal transcends the usual hardcore gamer, but it might just be because my family is pretty weird.

    I shall jolt down this next to Wattam on “Unusal games to keep an eye out for”.

    game:
    1) A form of competitive activity or sport played according to rules.2) An activity that one engages in for amusement.

    No mention of fail states in there. Plus by your definition Visual Novels are not games either. Neither are some card/board games. Neither is something like Minecraft. Neither are point and click adventures or puzzle games.

    I actually still play Journey in between games sometimes, but I’ve never tried any of the other games by this studio and I haven’t heard much about them. With all the hate out of nowhere I’m seeing in the comments…I think I want it to be good just to throw salt on you crybabies xD

    Journey is pretty looking time waster
    i had a friend with PS+ who got it for free so i got to play oit for free and kinda enjoyed it
    I wouldn’t buy it though, nor would i recomend anyone to do so, but if you can get it for free, give it a chance

    Not all puzzle games have a time limit.

    Not all VNs have a bad ending or even multiple ones.

    Point and Click-getting the evidence right – this is a challenge and has nothing to do with your previous winner-loser assertion.

    Problem is your definition (2) evaluates as True for any activity that can be [Fun]. be it writing/reading, drawing/painting, playing an instrument, … Even walking simulation can be amusing to some people.
    However none of those are intrisically games, since they fail to fulfill definition (1)

    In synthesis you are basically pulling a tautology because you find these software amusing.

    “I remember you defending Journey despite it was barely above a walking simulator,” – defending a game that I like – how dare I!

    “and lying through your teeth that you could die in the game from the metal monsters” – they damage you an send you back to the beginning of the level but you have to literaly stand there like an idiot and repeatedly get hit.

    “Again, you have shit taste in vidya so it’s no surprise” – oh, no! The valuable opinion of Smuglypuff has deemed my taste shit – how will I live with myself?

    “they damage you an send you back to the beginning of the level”

    Which never happens. Again you’re lying in the same level of Travis Touchdown.

    “but you have to literaly stand there like an idiot and repeatedly get hit”

    Because I tested what a reviewer said and he was absolutely right about the metal monsters representing literally no danger to you whatsoever

    They’re also only present at the end of both the cavern level & ice mountain level, where you dont even need your scarf aftferwards (as it will respawn at the beginning of the tower level after the cavern. And in the ice mountain, the scarf automatically destroys itself right past the monsters) so the penalties are inexistant. This is a major game design flaw.

    There is no reward or advantages in avoiding them.There is no game over.

    “Which never happens. Again you’re lying in the same level of Travis Touchdown/Cody.” – Ok, they push you back if you prefer. You can stand there and get repeatedly hit by the first pair of monsters until you lose your scarf

    “the metal monsters representing literally no danger to you whatsoever” – I never said they did represent a danger.

    “so the penalties are inexistant. This is a major game design flaw.” – not really. They are there to create the illusion of danger so they serve a purpose. I don’t see how it’s a major design flaw.

    “There is no reward or advantages in avoiding them.” – you are mistaken. Losing your scarf limits your mobitily, so there is a disadvantage of letting them hit you. Plus they slow your progress and you can lose your partner.

    “There is no game over.” – I agree. There is no game over.

    And that is already demonstrably False since a real game can evaluate True for both. So its actually (1) OR (2) … OR (n) not (1) XOR (2) … XOR (N)

    also do you realize all these 20+ definition are differents things, right?
    I can even summon the 3rd definition of a Game…

    So are you going to stand here and pretend he is also a game because he also included as the Nth definition of game in a dictionary?

    lastly, definitions are sorted by relevance, the most relevant definition being the first

    “And that is already demonstrably False since a real game can evaluate True for both.” – and who defines a “real” game? You?

    “lastly,definitions are sorted by relevance, the most relevant definition being the first” – and as you said it could be a combination of both.

    If you want here’s the video game definition – A game played by electronically manipulating images produced by a computer program on a monitor or other display.

    Combine it with the game definition and it is pretty clear that Shiggy is wrong for not counting them as games.

    Anything about it screams them, what do you consider life is strange do you think that not a SJW game because it is.

    Okay any game that doesn’t set off the SJW alarm bells is a good game.

    They dont just want diverse, but fluzzyness in there games.

    What about words with friends, word chums the last goes on.

    Or how about a game that use moral choices the game pauses you pick a choices.

    I fail to see how I defined “real” game if I simply used the definition you brought from aparently nowhere. Oh and the “real” part is just a language expression to tell apart stuff with the same name like game and game (deer) in a context specific conversation, duh.

    I also fail to see what do you accomplish with bringing video game, if stuff like journey fail to meet the base criteria of being a game in first place. Now if it evaluates true as electronical entertainment then its simply a Software – a simulation software.

    Mr0303
    November 3, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    “I fail to see how I defined “real” game if I simply used the definition you brought from aparently nowhere.” – Google is your friend. It’s the Oxford dictionary definition.

    “I also fail to see what do you accomplish with bringing video game, if
    stuff like journey fail to meet the base criteria of being a game in
    first place.” – so where do you get this criteria from? Citation needed.

  63. Riosine
    Riosine
    November 3, 2016 at 10:28 pm

    Well from Definition (1) AND (2), from apparently the Oxford dictionary of English. althought its more precisely (1) => (2) not (1) <= (2) or (1) (2). Oh and obviously, at this point, from the application of mathematical Logic.

  64. Mr0303
    Mr0303
    November 3, 2016 at 10:56 pm

    Your logic equations have no bearing on the discussion. The main reason I provided them is to counter the fail state argument.

  65. Riosine
    Riosine
    November 3, 2016 at 11:27 pm

    For starters They aren’t equations silly (have I even placed an “=” somewhere in my post?).
    They are actually called “statements”the implication symbol:” =>” is read ,and means, implies; and “<=" as reverse implication; is known as If and only if, aka IFF, and means (A) => (B) AND (A) <= (B)
    Now this is an equation (A) (B) = (B) => (A) AND (A) => (B).

    Ok you must now ne wondering where these enigmatic stuff came from right?
    Well Simple: Your argument relies in: software only needs to fulfill (2)
    to be a game.
    However Playing piano can be amusing thus qualifies as definition (2) yet is clearly not a game Thus (2) => (1) is demonstrably False. Ergo something like a Piano simulator is Not a game. Same thing for the walking ones.

    Therefore the correct definition of a game is Anything that fulfill (1) hence implies (2) NAND a Deer.

    Of course if you would’ve known logic you would not have had to read this long wall of introduction to Logic.

  66. Mr0303
    Mr0303
    November 4, 2016 at 12:12 am

    I know the implication symbol and the statements still don’t bring anything to the discussion.

    “Your argument relies in: software only needs to fulfill (2) to be a game.” – there is no mention of software anywhere in there. This is the definition of a game, not a video game. If you look at my posts above the definition of a video game is up there as well.

    Dictionary definitions don’t have the relationships you are trying to assign to them. Every definition is open to an interpretation and they are not logical literals.

    “Therefore the correct definition of a game is Anything that fulfill (1) hence implies (2) NAND a Deer.” – even if we accept that, which you pulled out of your arse, we can just as easily falsify the first statement – a duel to the death is not a game, but it fits definition 1 and definitely not 2.

    If we use logic 1 => 2 would result in true no matter the value of 2 since False => anything results in True. Obviously this is nonsense when we’re dealing with definitions of words since they are more open to interpretation.

  67. Riosine
    Riosine
    November 4, 2016 at 1:38 am

    (Ok, I assumed you didn’t know cause you called them equations)
    Now;

    “If you look at my posts above the definition of a video game is up there as well.”
    Video game definition is just Game Union Electronical Union software.

    Hence why I consider it irrelevant And focus on Game; Because Im not questioning if they are software that can be run on console/computer.

    “Every definition is open to an interpretation and they are not logical literals.”
    Ok lets see Pi definition:

    (1). The ratio of an euclidean circle circumference to its diameter.
    (2).A trascendental constant.
    (3). 3.1415926535897932384626433832795…
    seem quite logical and literal to me. Didn’t you told me Everyone of them weren’t? Oh and even (1)=>(3) and (2)
    So why is game so special that I can’t apply the same operation?

    “a duel to the deah” ain’t fun, huh? Then Mortal Kombat ain’t a videogame under your logic, isn’t it? Also Wasn’t the Roman Colosseum built under that Axiom?.

    “If we use logic 1 => 2 would result in true no matter the value of 2”
    let see

    (1) =>(2) being respectively

    T =>T = T
    T => F = F. Nope fail.

    This is more important
    “since False => anything results in True”

    So If (1) => (2) = T and they are F => T = T respectively then the stament is read:
    Something that isn’t a competition, an sport, nor it has rules, AKA something that is anything but a Game, can still be an amusing activity ie Journey and virtual piano. Sure

    So whats is the problem here?. And lastly that would only left behind your eclectic interpretation of game as the last pillar holding something that is literally not a game.
