      Me every time thought of a new feature: "That sounds cool, but you know what? forget it, I'm too lazy to implement and test it".

        Me every time I think of a new feature: "That sounds cool, and you know what? I'm going to implement and test it!" Cut to two years later, when I'm still trying to implement, test, and re-implement that same feature... :(

        Depends on the game. Old D and D games 0 HP is just KO, -10 is death.

        @Wavelength A car produces 0 HP while the engine is off. That does not make it dead.

      I like how some modders think their mod is their own the IP while what they did is just modify someone's IP. Why not as well as dev a game?

        @mishakoc I think I've read somewhere that edits still belong to the original creator, not to the editor. Can't remember where I read it, nor do I know how true it is. Maybe I just misread one of the licenses I have or something. lol.

        Bare-bones features that are supposedly intended is an excuse to let developers get off the hook for not putting in the effort to make it something engaging. The inclusion of mods should never be an excuse to not put effort into a feature.

        I'd argue the bare-bones features are essential for moddable game and it does not always need to be engaging on its own. It is not an excuse, it's a decision.

        I think having a game being able to be modded is great Unless there is a strong sense of 'missing' things in the base game itself.

        Loads of gamers do it. It's cute at first, but then it becomes annoying. Like when gamers think it's easy for an entire dev team to just drop a game engine and use a completely different one. It's not like devs need experience with specific engines and languages in order to use them effectively or anything.

        Actually, working on my game gave me the experience to understand how hard it is to create a game, even for a full company with many employees. Some things aren't easy to do, but at the same time, some other things are easier to do than we first think.

      Why I think the concept of inn in RPG is not interesting, especially when the sole purpose of it is just to recover all stat.

        In a wip game I used an inn similar to what Galenmereth suggests but my structure is a bit different. You go to the inn at the end of your current adventure and spend your money their on doing things that ultimately open up new adventure options or reveal character development for your heroes. Resetting stats is just implied. Hope that helps.

        there*, I miss edit... also, examples are spending gold on a drinking game where at the end of it, while drunk, one of heroes reveals how they lost their eye in duel but lost much more... their honor & their love. Another one might be getting the local bard to play a favorite bar song or you tip the traveling dancers to dance with their friends. These can lead to character moments.

        Yeah, too much needless stuff for just a simple mechanic of restoring all HP and MP. I just get round that by making a shrine or health station players can interact with. Takes them only 5 seconds to recover everything and move on rather than a whole minute. It's more enjoyable if you want to get it done with and move on to more interesting aspects of the game.
