the301stspartanshruggerechanical skill = more decision making. Making a game easier mechanically doesn't make it the smarter game, take CSGO for example. Maybe you are countering his phrasing but I think it was obvious he wasn't referring to "dumbed down" as a less cerebral type of play, you are just arguing semantics at that point. He just meant that the mechanics have less depth to them
Huh no I was only arguing the general practice of calling a game "dumbed down" on the basis of DM mechanics. I'm not saying Overwatch involves more or less decision making than tf2. From what I see, I wouldn't even agree on the mechanics front. But I'm completely unqualified to make any statement about any of that because I've never played the game.Show Content:(
avast never said the game was dumbed down though. in the context of his sentence, he simply said the mechanics were dumbed down, which means something different from what you are implying.
