Sad truths about (some) gamers

“Just as digital game players have problems divorcing an understanding
of mechanics from the visuals to which they are exposed, a Eurogamer’s
judgment of a title may be as much informed by its production values
as its actual gameplay.”

— Greg Costikyan, “Boardgame Aesthetics”, Tabletop: Analog Game Design, 2011.
