        When you have free time, give yourself some work. Go do the dishes, clean the house, etc. While you are doing those jobs that require more movement repetition than thinking, ideas will come.

      Coincidence is a convenient plot device. How did the hero meet the heroine? it's coincidence! How is the hero the choosen one? Coincidence!

        Hero and heroine are titles given to those who are actively going out there to fight against evil. If the supposed hero stayed in town and did nothing all day, he would no longer be the hero. He became the hero because he's actually putting his life on the line to save the peoples.

        No one is the hero before becoming the chosen one. They become the hero, because they were chosen to become one and accepted their role and acted on it.

        How does the hero meet anyone? A coincidence. They hero happens to like the heroine. The feeling is mutual. Coincidence. But it makes a great story.

      For RPG grinders. Do you prefer a spoiler to ur char progression (i.e, skill tree that u know the end game build) or prefer it as a mystery?

        I think knowing what skills are ahead is more interesting and could make you grind a bit so that you can get to some of those skills faster. I certainly did that in the past, and I am someone who doesn't like grinding. Even better if the skill tree splits and choices need to be made.

        Depends on if there's synergy with later skills or not, and if you can reset progress. But in general, I like to see what's ahead, because I'll skip ahead to the final skills in that list and decid on what looks coolest to me.

        Today's gamers are looking for multi-player garbage minutes of fun. Games like Minecraft, Call of Duty, and Fortnite reflected this. That's not to say however that those games are forever lost. As long as JRPGS thrive, there will always be a market for the older classics.

        Actually, I understand the popularity of minecraft. It has an incredible potential for modding and for design and the community fully utilizes it. It's not just pointless mining around. I don't play minecraft as I don't find it fun, but unlike CoD and Fortnite it deserves its popularity.

        It was mostly my curiosity of "what's good about 16:9 anyway? let's try stuff". Turned out it isn't really that different, except I'm having problem redesigning UI so it won't looks ugly.

        It mostly depends on your game's maps. If you have small rooms, 1920x1080 looks ugly.

        I remember (might have been from high school) something that prehistoric people would cut hair because it was very thick and painful when it would tangle. Not sure if that was protohuman or early man though.

        Some of animals need to take care of their body though. It isn't hair, but a type of rodent who build a dam on the river (I forgot the name), if they didn't "chop off" the wood, their teeth will continuously growing.

        You mean beavers. Did you know that their teeth are coated with iron so they can cut trees. That's why their teeth have that ugly orange colour because iron oxidizes.

        Hey I started a chat storm before bed last night, cool.

        Yeah, I don't regret the fight, but I do wish I'd left immediately afterwards instead of trying to see if the girl was okay. Cops showed up, she took bf's side and said the bruise he gave her was my fault, and I got an assault charge. Closes a lot of doors that does.

        If you were satisfied with anything you did youd stop doing it. It hurts but your mentality is the kind that doesnt stop climbing. Stop fretting about the product and enjoy the process.

        @Countyoungblood not sure if I agree with that. For a starter, getting proud of urself is a good sign. Ppl tend to give up on their learning bcz they expected a good result during the first try. Yea some peeps tried to draw pixelart. Realized it was horrible, they stopped it. If they could appreciate their effort, they'd continue to do, which eventually leads into better skill

        I see where you're coming from I get how others can influence what you invest your time into but what im saying is you eventually become numb to what other people think and all thats left is what you think of it yourself. since you're the most familiar with your efforts its hard to like what you make since you know all the flaws

        When you're in that quandary, offer good *opportunities* to grind, without ever *forcing* players to grind in order to progress/enjoy your game. :)

        If people do it, it is usually enforced by the concept of difficulty. Easy allows you to play with no grinding, hard with grinding.
