I love this post. Just by reading it, I understand why Randy was so adamant about getting back to the original point he was trying to make.
He does say that the ‘original point’ is the point I made in my original post, but more specifically he seems to say that the original point wasn’t as good as the one I made in my original post. I agree.
That’s why I think my original post was better. I added alot of really cool information that helped the post tie into the points I made in my original post. Its a shame Randy didn’t notice that and maybe just plain didn’t get what was going on.
Randy did notice the difference, and I think his response is better than I’d have expected. In fact, I think it’s better than I’d have expected as well. I’m not sure exactly what he was referring to, but I’m guessing that being a game designer and not a novelist and having an attention span of one short question per page, he was trying to get me to focus on something specific. I’m sure it’s fine as that was really just a side-note.
I think its a great example of the difference between a game designer and a novelist. The game designer has to be very specific, very precise about the world, the actions, the decisions. The novelist just has a blank canvas, and imagines anything and everything that they want to write about.
I’m a game designer, and I’m not a novelist. I can’t be 100% specific about my world. I can’t be 100% precise about the actions the players will have to take and the decisions they will have to make. I can’t be 100% precise about what I’m writing about in my game.
I think it’s a bad idea to be so precise about everything you do. Because every decision you make has the potential to change your story.
I think this is a bad idea, because everything we do has the potential to change the shape of our story. We do it with our actions, our words, our thoughts, and we do it with the opinions and thoughts of others. I think this is a bad idea because we are always changing things, every day.
I think the same thing. I think every time we have a bad decision, we make it a more or less permanent bad decision. So, the more bad decisions we make, the more bad situations we have to deal with. Because it is a bad circle. We are always changing things, but we don’t always know it.
You’re right Randy. I think every bad decision we make is a bad decision. I think we are always changing things, but we dont always know it.
