I posted about a more specific mechanic previously. Now it would be cool to talk about it for real, in general. How do you keep your gameplay fresh? How do you keep it from being stale? What ideas do you implement into your scenes, your battles and your exploration to keep it from getting too repetitive? For example, my idea would be to provide more variety of the given mechanics. Also, if I know one strategy is so effective that everyone will use that over and over, I'll do what I can to take that strategy away. It doesn't help if I have 100 different options but only one is going to be used. What about you?
