>>44626459 Its enjoyable for the first four hours until you realize that the game is relaly hollow mechanically and the 'difficulty' is completely arbitrary rng stuff that doesn't really matter how you play and the 'resource management' part is incredibly weak since there's only one real resource to manage and you end up swimming in it.
>>44626373 counterexample: chess Also there are other examples of good boardgames that have a really limited amount of RNG. The RNG makes them better/ups the replay value, but the would work without the RNG.
>>44626373 That depends, are we actually on topic and talking about traditional games? In that case yes, RNG is a major contributor to the fun of games. It makes you think on your feet and keeps you from hijacking the story in TTRPGs, and adds a bit of fairness and realism to things like wargames and card games.
If you're an off-topic shitposter talking about videogames, then 1. Fuck off and 2. RNG is almost always just an artificial difficulty generator used to pad games that either don't actually require any real skill to play or are just out to put you through as much tedious bullshit as they can just to offer you the ability to pay real money to bypass it.
There are also diceless RPGs, like Amber, Lords of Gossamer and Shadow, and Lords of Olympus. The fun in these is all tactics. You know whether or not you can win any specific encounter going in, so the trick is to get your opponent to waste resources preparing for attacks that don't come, or to maneuver him into a position where he has no way out. It's kind of like chess, in a way.
>>44626373 >Prove me wrong. The most popular /tg/ games have autistic amount of rules and let the players stack the odds heavily in their favour. If rng was fun the hobby wouldn't be fun of minmaxing retards or people who look up "builds" for imaginary monsterslaying.
