Badges don’t dictate what games you have to play, silly humans.

Actually, games with a luck factor balanced with strategy and skill are superior. Think about trading card games (not just online ones), poker and other gambling games, multiplayer or RPG games with crit chance and other percentage based effects, games with random AI, etc. Strategy and decision making in these games are still the most significant factors to success, but the luck factor makes the game exciting and changes the experience every play. Luck evens out in the long run, so even if you don’t get any mana potions in CT2 on one try, you might get an abundance of them next try.

And yes, I agree that “badges should emphasise skill, not blind luck or spending hours grinding.” But in the best games, luck is not an overwhelming factor, and you can see this by looking at the top rated badged games, or the most played badged games. The luck factor is there but they are still very fun and successful games.

While it is true that some games are not for everyone, some games don’t seem to be for anyone.

While I do agree with most of your points, the ratings of games obviously show that a significant amount of people do enjoy playing them. Many of these people don’t post on the forums or don’t comment on the game itself, but their opinions do matter, even if they are not explicitly voiced.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / You ask - we reply!

I can’t complete the second quest “New Appointment” because I can’t talk to the Academy Secretary. I’ve literally clicked everything and there’s no way to complete the quest because I can’t even find the NPC or talk to him. How do I complete the quest, or is this a bug?

Topic: Kongregate / Anniversary Giveaway

I signed up more than 3 years ago because I was bored during winter break, apparently. I stayed. It’s been fun. No exciting anniversary-related stories though, sorry.

Topic: Esgrima 2 / bugs

Whenever I click to join or create a zone, the game stays on loading forever with the spinny circle thing as your cursor. I can’t do anything when this happens, and it never finishes loading. After refreshing, the problem still persists. As of now I can’t play the game.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Music Differentiation

I understand what you are saying. It is an unfortunate tendency for people to label types of music they dislike and consider “bad” as non-music. Of course, even “bad” music is music.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Music Differentiation

Well, the thread is supposed to be about how you differentiate music and non-music. There’s nothing about good or bad music in the OP. So I guess it was an honest mistake. Although I should have caught that.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Music Differentiation

Music is art, art requires talent and creativity.

The grey line in music (what makes something music or not music) is what one considers talent and creativity.

For example, pop music. One could argue creating a repetitive, generic dance beat and autotuning someone repeating lyrics that could have been written by a 12-year old in five minutes does not require talent and does not require creativity. Another could argue that it takes talent and creativity to write catchy lyrics and make beats.

And what do we consider music? Well, music is essentially anything that is instruments. I think we can though differentiate GOOD music from BAD music regardless of genre. If the music has;
~ Good Production (Instrument blending, melodies, etc).
~ A concept/subject
~ Good lyrics (Using literary devices helps)

I think just remember music is an form of art.

This section is for debating, no? (I never post here) If so, I will respectfully disagree with your post. Music does not require any of those three things. While the things you listed do classify something as music, they are not a necessity.

I don’t mind MMOs getting badged but I hate these copy-paste games that are exact replicas of various previous games, just the theme has changed. (Ex. Legacy of Heroes, Legacy of a Thousand Suns, Dawn of the Dragons, etc.)

Topic: Kongregate / Card Games?

Originally posted by Senekis93:

I can’t remember the name of this one (let’s see if someone helps with that), but there was a single player card game which was nice, although a bit short.
There were different card types based on the elements and each turn you’d get a given ammount of each element, which you could use to summon cards of that type.

For the multiplayer ones, I enjoyed Tyrant, Kingdoms and Elements. Each has different battle mechanics.

Was it this game?
