My first online games were free games on a web game, I played them at an internet cafe, and at that time I was 9 years old. how about you guys? tell me your story!
AI. Once you figure out how to beat a machine, it's beaten and will stay beaten forever. A human will give you fresh challenges.I don't see any advantages compared to single play—I have no need to prove myself or beat the game, my only objective is to enjoy the experience.
Oh gosh no—unless that's what you want, of course.Once you figure out how to beat a machine, it's beaten and will stay beaten forever
Which means you haven't figured out how to beat it. I'm talking about when you find the inevitable holes in the AI so you can beat it whenever you want. You can hobble yourself to try and find some other way to beat it, but the satisfaction is going to go down more and more.Play Civ4 at the level beyond which you can win.
That's not the case with Civ4. There are a few people in the world capable of beating the top Deity difficulty regularly, but I have zero interest in even trying Deity or the next level down, Immortal. Both require playing in a way which negates any reason to play the game and reduce each turn to 'Solve for X'. Wonderful if that's what you want to do, and congrats to those few who've managed it.Which means you haven't figured out how to beat it
Not for me. As I said, I don't need to beat a game or be challenged or some other monotone objective. My satisfaction is all about whatever I feel like on the day.the satisfaction is going to go down more and more
