You’ll have to bear with me as this one requires quite a bit of context. My apologies. Nevertheless, here we go.
You have expressed in the past that you don’t like to change any controller-related settings in games because you prefer to play the game the “way the developers intended.” Red Dead Redemption 2 is one example of this, though if memory serves it’s not the only one. I admit that this line of thinking actually gets to me a little, but it leads to my question as well. I’ll explain.
As accessibility becomes more mainstream, more options in games have started to appear. Not just subtitle options or colorblind options, all sorts of options, up to and including the ability to drastically change the way the controls work in some games. As this happens, as the amount of options available to gamers increases, as the way in which you can play games becomes more fluid, one thing becomes clear to me. Game developers “intend” for you to have a good time playing their game. Whether that means you adjust a few things to make it a better experience for you personally doesn’t matter so long as you get enjoyment out of it. The options are there because the developers “intend” for them to be there. My outside-the-box attempts at games alone should be enough to demonstrate that there really is no right or wrong way to play. I ask you to consider this, consider how gaming has changed in that options like this really didn’t exist in the past, and speak your thoughts on developer intent. Or, if you want it in the form of a question, what do you think of my line of thinking on this matter? Have I at least provided perspective? Thank you, and continue to be awesome.
