I was reading a comment from another post and this caught my attention.
Never really thought about endgame in such a way, or better yet, lets not confuse people. Lets call endgame for what it is.
the game after the levels.
Well for the game after the levels, who ever said this part of the game was ever meant to be fun?
Some games have no levels, and endgame is day 1. So who said it had to be fun? What about rough. Most sandbox (aka so called sandbox) MMOs have no character levels. Their endgame starts when you jump in. And it has a large setback of FFA gank fest environment. Thats not fun.
but again who ever said its suppose to be fun?
But on the flip side, what would endgame be, if it was suppose to be fun? How would that change the outcome of most games?
Would long term appeal increase or decrease from whatever changes were needed to make the endgame fun, instead of not fun?
