Understanding Addiction-Based Game Design

incubeous Reward Are Also Competitive (308 comments)

Don't forget that one of the key ingredients in the MMO soup is being able to compete and flaunt your achievements to you the people you like AND the people you don't like. It gives a sense of personal ranking and has a elitist type effect on the psyche. It's always fun to show off your gear and make people drool.

Hackers, Spelling, and Grammar?

incubeous Re:Different problems? (2360 comments)

"Poor grammar is more fundamental I feel, as it implies a lack of comprehension. In coding terms, I may not remember the method name but I should at least understand the algorithm I'm attempting to implement." I find that highly untrue. People still can understand you when you type "loosing". You still retain knowledge, in light of your metaphor, of the 'algorithm'. Just because you mispell a word and use incorrect grammar in 90% of the cases doesn't mean people still can't understand you. I'm sick of mispelling a word and then being looked down upon. Oh no, riddiculous has only one d? I better go back to college, apparently I know nothing.
