hydlide> rpg or what
NickWebHA> it's a 2D, top-down, player-vs-player tank game
NickWebHA> similiar to "Combat" on the Atari
ZorbaTHut> man, people are doing a lot of those lately
hydlide> why dont nobody make tactical rpgs
hydlide> i think they are the most fun kinds of games
ZorbaTHut> hydlide, because you need a bunch of content for those
ZorbaTHut> and because RPGs and tactical games are less glamorous than action games
hydlide> and they're economical.. just need a good battle engine.. some character system.. and then fill up some sort of story to go between the battles
hydlide> yeah :(
ZorbaTHut> amateur gamers make games that they want to play, and it's not all that fun to play a tactical game that you designed, because you know everything about it.
hydlide> yeah, thaz true
ZorbaTHut> making a game for other people to play is one of the marks of a professional developer.
ZorbaTHut> jesus christ where did *that* come from
ZorbaTHut> I swear the Gods of Gaming use me as a mouthpiece sometimes
