Can the argument, "but this is fun" please die in a fire somewhere and never come back. In case people are not aware, fun is entirely subjective. I hate MOBAs and FPS. Last I checked those are both very popular game genres. I would bet most of the people playing them, are having a lot of fun, despite my hatred of the genre. Some people enjoy stabbing themselves. I am sure that the majority of us do not. "Fun," is not an argument for anything, so please lets leave it out of the thread since its not something which is objectively measurable and nor does it move the discussion anywhere.
I am so happy to read that. Because, you know, it is Larian's argument. They said they do not follow d&d rules because it is more fun. Funny, isn't it ?
I don't really care which side is using the argument (there are people on both side who say that something must stay a certain way because its more fun), I would just appreciate if it stopped happening. I imagine they probably did have reasons for making changes aside from just "well fun," (in fact, I could write my own argument for either side were I so inclined) but writing a full on technical analysis of why a change is made takes time away from someone whose time is likely better spent doing something else and so the "but its fun" got used as a cop out. Better that they had not said anything at all however, if they could not get the relevant person to write out their explanation for why.
