Here's a good example of a button mashing game. It is basically the meaning, you press random button that have no meaning to perform a cutscene. It's also basically impossible to fail.
No devil may cry and such aren't really button mashers as the order inwhich you press the buttons performs certain combos. The people that player games like that which you could coin the nickname button masher is just randomly pressing buttons on the controller hoping to hit one of the combos.
That's all that has to be said about that statement lol.
|FPS are designed to be run and gun.|
No they aren't, not even going to bother reading the rest of that paragraph. Play me Halo 1 and if you try your run and gun play style I will own you 100-0. What is designed to be run and gun is games like COD that are designed to bring in kids that play the same mindless game without getting bored.
|First Person Shooters are normally run and gun and having a detailed story takes away from the run and gun. Also, the AI sole purpose is to shoot at you or duck and avoid your shots. If the AI was so good that you never hit them, what would be the point? All games have dumbed down AI, otherwise every game would be unbeatable as you could code it so they never get hit or rarely get hit, which again would take away from run and gun.|
That's the point I don't want run and gun, it is terrible and it is by no means a design of FPS. Where did I say anything about AI ? Your conception of the correlation between good story and unbeatable AI is flawed. Demon/Dark soul is a good example of
|I love all games as I'm a gamer. Yeah some games have flaws, but so do humans and like the saying goes|
It's not one flaw, the entire thing is flawed. One big thing in a game is balance, if someone can rack up 10 kills then get a chopper and get an addition 30 kills to win the game that is too unbalanced to be enjoyed.
| it is apparent that you have biased views on it|
Aww trying to bring up that argument :P. Damn right I'm biased against glitchy, brainless run and gun gameplay, releasing the exact same game every year for the same price type of games. I'm biased against games where a 4 year old can pick up a controller and have no idea what he's doing and still be able to kill me - I am proud to say I am not a COD gamer.
|Umm..... your joking right? Alchemy is real... it's called chemistry.|
Umm... your joking right ? Alchemy is not the samething as chemistry. Though it maybe what lead to chemistry to be what it is today, the main principle of alchemy was trying to turn cheap metals into rare ones like gold. If you think it's real in the sense of what the game provide please make me a potion that increases my hp by 100.
