Heck, it was exciting to *discover* the right breeding combination. Now we just wait for the jail breakers to find out and let us know.
We've become a bunch of green shade accountants pushing monkey motion buttons. Analysis may not cause paralysis, but it certainly can drain wonder.
When I was a kid I had a story on a record that had several beginnings, several middles, and several endings. There was no statistical certainty as to which one would play and you never knew how the story would unfold. I loved it. I'd like to see BFS do the same with DV. I'd like them to design uncertainty into the game as opposed to building it as a macro statistical certainty. They could use different statistical programming sets that they would randomly pull in and out on a continuous basis so that you never know with any certainty what's what. Really mess with our minds. It would sure make this forum more interesting:
"Hey guys, Double Rainbows are really hot right now!"
"I can't believe I got a Ghost dragon! I thought they were seasonal."
I don't seek certainty in life and I don't seek it in games. I like risk, not knowing what the outcome will be. I like the joy of success and, probably, the distress that comes with failure. If life was as predicable as DV it would become awfully dull when you've lived as many years as I have.
I so love your way of thinking!!! I wish you would hold a "camp" for others to come and partake of your vast wisdom! I would love to bring my husband and have us both benefit from your sharing!
