Something positive for a change! Reading through the lodestone forums, I re-discovered an old thread
about in-game card games. While it takes the (imo) most boring example possible (Triple Triad), I think
having something similar in the game would actually go a long way towards creating an interesting
diversion and a real timesink at the same time (with comparatively little resources necessary; like, no
3D models or animations).
There are by far better examples of such minigames that Triple Triad, though. I guess few of you
guys have played Xenosaga, an all-in-all disappointment with one notable exception: it had the
most addictive and well-executed MINIgame I`ve ever seen in a game (mind you: I`m talking
about minigames here; of course there are digital adaptations of Magic, Pokemon and whatever).
I actually believe I enjoyed playing that minigame a good number of times more than the main
storyline. Here`s a peek http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgungA5f_ps&feature=relmfu .
Soo... for all of you who can: Please bump and like the associated main forum thread ;)
(Although I believe SE has something similar in store for 2.0 anyway).
