It’s as close to an anti-game as I’ve seen and that’s why I enjoy it so much.
You can do NOTHING in it. Have no purpose whatsoever for being there and yet have a good time.
For purpose-focused games, there’s 80s stuff like Galaga and Zaxxon. [loved the music in both cases]. Castlevania. I liked hockey on my Intellivision because I could trip people, and Madness + the Minotaur on my Tandy Color Computer 2 because it was a text adventure where I was always getting lost and loving it.
90s: I saw the appeal of Doom (I beta tested tongue emoticon ) but after that, all 1st person shooters looked like Doom to me, so I lost most interest in gaming ’til Minecraft came along.
I KNOW I’d enjoy Fallout 4, which is why I stay away from it. I’m weird like this: I avoided MC for a year until I *had* to start up a server for my nephew in 2012 and, well, it became an obsession. Thankfully games like Fallout4 have built-in limits; they’re not infinite games… but as someone who _can_ get hooked on things easily and use it to escape (like being on FB right now), I try to be careful tongue emoticon
