My friend Chris wrote me to tell me about a game in which you play as a pediatric optometrist. Ugh.
“What kind of player fantasy is that?” I wrote back. “How is giving pretend eye drops to pretend squirming kids a good gameworld? For that matter, how is telling kids they need new glasses a compelling game story? Ugh. That does not sound even a little bit fun!”
I sent the email and went back to digging holes in Blockheads.
