What you permit you promote, what you permit you promote. WHAT YOU PERMIT YOU PROMOTE.


I bit my tongue on it the first time I saw it, particularly because someone (Rinsui I believe) restated it a bit better in terms of player exploitation behaviors, but your statement is not true as a general rule. There are many things that games permit that they do not promote, and as a result, although players can theoretically do them, they generally don't. That's just not how motivation works.

I would have been happy to overlook it if you hadn't said it like five more times in that last post.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
