    LGF said: Again, great hints! Thank you for the time you've put into this. Let me now go step by step. I agree with you. It should make sense with voice commands. But that's not the only, and probably not the most important, requirement. In some cases, we may have to compromise it in favour of a more accurate, better organized and/or more comprehensive classification. Usecases for end...

    LGF said: Distant Star said: At least it's very specific compared too 'adventure'. Your definition of adventure was this: "I would define adventure as a series of events that happen in a context far from our normal daily lives, but which don't involve much interaction with other people (otherwise, it would be crime/war/horror). "  adventure as a series of events that...

    LGF said: Distant Star said: I would recommend to remove 'adventure' from the theme section. It doesn't describe a theme. I think adventure and action are two of the most meaningless words in gaming. How would you classify Tomb Raider then? Crime? Is it a crime to kill bears and dinasaurs? :P I agree that these terms can mean many things, specially "action". But if we...

    I would recommend to remove 'adventure' from the theme section. It doesn't describe a theme. I think adventure and action are two of the most meaningless words in gaming. You could also explore taxonomy of main characters or NPCs, but those would be a sub category's of 'theme'. Tried it...

Confusing system specs and competing products certainly won’t drive VR adoption forward on PC.VR is still in it's infancy. Sony is aiming for a long lifecycle. We don't need a PS4 and PSVR that will keep the  status quo until 2020.

    What will kill VR first? Expensive or cheap headsets?

And what you're going to do with VR helmet anyway.

    1) estimated price of a new pc + OR => 1600$,  estimated (highest) cost for PS4 + PS VR = 850$.  So its about half the cost of entry to get a VR ready system.It all depends on what gamers will consider a VR ready system. Comparing GTX 970 (more than 1 year old) to PS4 (more than 2 years old) both are VR ready? Without VR controllers for both Oculus and Sony. 2) Nvidia...

    I could see Epic making their own storefront (just to get another 20%). This could lead to more Linux based 'consoles' with an Epic OS. This is great news BTW. https://www.unrealengine.com/what-is-unreal-engine-4...

    Gameplay isnt the most important thing in games.

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 March 2015

    Wonktonodi said:I would love to see people define gameplay, because I imagine those that define it very narrowly won't see it as important as those that define it more broadly. Is Tetris great because of the gameplay? Or because the challenge of it getting harder and harder? Without the challenge of the difficulty increasing it would get pretty boring. But is increasing difficulty part of...
