What make you think that a game will be fun to play question

Postby GladDog » Mon Jul 02, 2018 5:43 am

Which of the following is most likely to make you think that a game will be fun to play?

Reaction video – watch others react as they play the game
Content video – watch devs play the game, showing new features
Alpha test video – watch supporters play the game
See it in your mind – just tell us what is being built

I voted Alpha testing by supporters. New players get to discover awesome stuff, and point out things the dev team misses. A good example was Burn. The dev team for CoH designed it as a defensive power that gave a Fire Tank almost half of their mez resist. They did not foresee the offensive juggernaut that fire tanks would become because of it. If Burn had had proper testing in beta, it would have not become the huge headache that it did become for the dev team.

I went with content video.

I also said content video. I feel alpha supporters have already made the choice that this will be the game for them and therefore will only have positive things to say. I would much rather watch the dev video and decide for myself.

This is the same reason I said reaction videos. Seeing people that aren't already supporters reacting to content informs me a lot.
However, content videos showing new features as they are develped, excites me the most, buy informs my decision less
