Why Computer RPGs Waste Your Time, Part 2

Role Playing (Games)

spidweb writes "RPG Vault has the second part of a long-time RPG designer's rant regarding what is so terrible about the genre. This month: trash monsters, the boring identical monsters you are forced to kill again and again. From the article: "So many role-playing games fall prey to what I call Long Corridor Syndrome. At a certain point, late in the game, you can tell that the developers ran out of time, money and ideas, and all you find are long, straight corridors filled with monsters and nothing else of interest."
