Odd revelation...

Well, this is kinda strange, haven't went all weird in a while, but mebbe due.

So I was PM'ing a couple new Buds elsewhere, pointed out that I am much better/more inclined to the timed games, as opposed to the points games.

It occurred to me, I guess-typically, points games are based on "the most", timed games are based on "the least".

(Anyone see where this is headed?).

Seems to me like a psychiatrist would put that down to me being incredibly lazy, getting by with "as little as possible", as I've always claimed...

:P

Just something to think about.

    I am more inclined to driving games so it is no surprised there's time involved. I'm not likely to go for anything truly endurance but I'm happy putting in for a multi-hour race if a game has one designed - just have to plan when I can go for it.

    timed games often require true perfect, you have to learn everything. point marathons (which is what most point games turn into) allow you to make up for errors in one area with higher skill in another area. dont knock what you do, it requires mastery of every aspect of the game. sure some games have less to master so i wouldnt wanna blanketly compare point or time as harder, and even with points allowing you to make up for one deficiency with another skill in no ways means its easy, but even still, i wouldnt call it lazy

    I...really like that perspective, Thanks, Man!!!

    Ironically, it's you I am chasing right this moment on a timed adventure, lol, INT Skiing, 7 slope-I tied Glenn, I promise, I don't need the 47.0, but I'd sure like to catch ya, that's an awesome time!!!

    :)

    You are not lazy , just very efficient!! I still think there is a bigger buzz beating a time than a score.

    I think it depends on the game. Time based, speedruns especially, definietly require a heck of a lot of precision. I love the buzz of seeing the words ' High Score' pop up. I've been taking ages trying to figure out how to beat the record for Tetris DS' marathon...
