It’s a shame that something as stupid as idle games are catching on. How about real games?

Just because they are idle games doesn’t mean they aren’t fun.

Idle games are the definition of boring! There is nothing fun about watching a counter.

You don’t seem to realize that one can have more then one game running at once. The point isn’t to go to an idle game and play it for hours on end, it’s to go back and forth to it. It’s not an either RPG/Tower Defense/whatever or idle game, the point is you can make progress while doing other things, but as a player of an idle game or two, believe me, it will get nowhere without guidance. But, yes, loads of idle games are crap, and developers need to realize that you can only keep up with 1 or 2 idle games at a time, so really, they’re the least likely way to get a crap game popular.

How can you call it a game if you don’t even have to play it? I real game requires your attention and requires to play it. If you are able to have 3 tabs at once then the game obviously isn’t keeping your attention and if it doesn’t require playing then how is it worth calling a game?

Get a real game.

1. See part about how if you’re not actively involved it won’t progress well at all.

2. Did you mean ‘A’ or are you really bad at grammar?

3. You forget how many games have built in breaks. I can switch back and forth between Mario and Sonic because both have levels and stopping points.

If you were actively involved then you wouldn’t be able to switch tabs. Built in breaks have nothing to do with progressing the game, You can stop playing Mario or sonic at the break and you won’t progress unlike idle games where being AFK still increases your counter. If Mario or sonic played themselves during the breaks then it would be bullshit

So your arguments are invalid, Idle games are shit

There have been games where you can do stuff like put money in the bank and have it grow while you’re not doing anything since Majora’s Mask. Guess that game is bullshit too, right? And Mario and Sonic might not be the best examples. How about any puzzle game? People often stop those when, and throughout their day work their way through it. An idle game is good for when you’re stuck elsewhere.

There are better things to do when stuck somewhere than watching a dumb counter placate to your ego. Since when was the aim of puzzle games to watch a counter? They have to pause the game, it remains stagnet, My Sudoku puzzles has never played itself.

An Idle game is bullshit and they shouldn’t be the majority of games on kongregate.

Immortal, clearly you haven’t any idle games because if people were just to watch a counter go up… it would be boring. Games such as “Reactor incremental” and even “Anti-Idle” are amazing Idle games that actually make you think how progress the fastest way possible. However, games like “Adventure Capitalist” changed the Idle formula into a far more simpler and in tab game. So it really depends on the type of idle game you play and how much thing you can do in it that ACTUALLY influence the gameplay as time progresses onward. Anyways, if your not a patient person who finds satisfaction in achieving high numbers then idle games aren’t the games for you.

Granted, but you can never dream again.
I wish for cheaper and more effective upgrades in Adventure Capitalist.

Granted, but everything you eat tastes rotten. I wish that granting wishes were impossible.
