Plus a lot of stuff about that game felt incomplete, which most likely had to do with limited time and resources being spread over too many routes.

I'm not advocating for spreading resources throughout all kinds of endeavors.
What I'm advocating for is implementing moderate amount of game mechanics.
A huge amount of quests with little game mechanics would resemble at best - a point and click adventure at worst a book with pictures.

Maybe we should incorporate every suggestion on this board, I don't know and it's not for me to decide. The point is that for each and every such feature there should be a concrete decision - it either makes it into the game or it doesn't.

Always in games it annoys me that I can't customize it just the way I want.
IMO there should be as many easy to access options as possible, all with default settings and a big reset button.
Plenty of options is potentially one of the best ways to fix nit-picking problems that could plague the game.
I can see the idea behind artistic integrity and delivering a fixed experience, but at the end of the day it's just a game, and touch on wood it'll be classic, but, if it turns out to be a mediocre experience, a complete lack of options and customizability could kill it stone dead *cough rage cough*

" The aim for Wasteland 2 is to create an entirely customizable experience: 'the entire experience in itself is one big customizable feature.'"

paultakeda wrote:Yes, because the party system is conducive to changing how you play the game, not because you want to tweak the game mechanics.
I support that. I do not support needlessly changing the rules of the game.
abyss wrote:When you have Brian Fargo emphasizing in interviews that the "entire experience" is "entirely customizable", it means that you can expect more than just basic party creation.

Classic RPGs originate from PnP games run by DMs, experiences that were custom tailored to the party playing.

So would I.

Edit: Now you kids get off my lawn.
