Yes correct. A general example for weak RPG design. It's just wide like an ocean, but deep as a puddle.

*whisper*I don't think G understands how market economy works.

Ever had that, not feeling so much, but kind of urge to write something? But you just don't know how to phrase it? I'm having one of those right now.

Yeah I know what you mean, just sit down and start typing nonsense till it turns into something.

As for Googol here any way we could literally just start pretending he doesn't exist?
At the very least get the topic, back ON topic?

No absolutely not, that is a terrible way to handle discussions.

Anyway, derailing!

Market enconomy is not the goal of a video game. The goal is to be a masterpiece of art.
When we are talking about market enconomy then Call of Duty does everything right.


@7heDubz
Stop posting phrases about back on topic without to post something on topic.

Art is a part of videogames. But if you cannot fund the project, your masterpiece will never reach the shelves and your other visions will never take physical form. FG would not have been able to create SOMA if Amnesia was a total failure. Because it is the figures that matter in the real world.

And how did they create Penumbra? Which is still the best game from FG?
Best games were made with a small budget bro.

Best games were made with a small budget bro.

To begin with "Best" is a very subjective term. Furthermore, I assume Penumbra was created by outside funding i.e. investors, who will want their money back and some more. If you are constantly looking for investors to develop games and evey game ends up being a money hole you WILL find it harder to find investors. Market success is not a negative aspect.

On another note: Don't use "bro" when discussing. Your argument sounds either aggressive or unserious.

Ooooohhh, dear Sir. Sorry for my aggression.
I'm so aggressive, I should be a monster in SOMA!

Hand Icons: I know that you can change the hand icon in the settings of Amnesia. From a hand to a simple white dot. Perhaps the same feature is implemented in SOMA.
