    I’m glad you had fun with it. Do accept that my inability to have fun with it doesn’t negate any of the enjoyment you got out of it. Respectfully, something this long instructing me of all the ways I must have played it wrong if I didn’t enjoy it as much as you comes off as a little condescending. I’m sure it wasn’t your intent, but like… I know I have the option to put it down or skip things. I know I can pay off bounties. I was there, these systems and ideas are not hard to find. But for me, the fact that I’m allowed to skip engaging with a system or put it down before I see all the devs put there for me to see is the opposite of a selling point.

    For me, it’s like I ordered a meal at a favorite restaurant, the plate came out with portions three times larger than expected and gorgeously plated but with so little seasoning I couldn’t stomach it. Saying “you don’t have to eat it all” and “there’s salt on the table” doesn’t make it a good meal.

    We find different things fun, and that’s okay. May we both have a good time with Mirage.

      Sorry, my intent was not to sound condescending, I was erring on the side that you weren’t aware of the ways you could get around those issues in order to enjoy the parts you wanted to. Your criticisms are definitely valid, I would agree that even needing to know about the workarounds sort of proves that what was included wasn’t an entirely cohesive and tight product to begin with, the way I played is not necessarily right or wrong, and neither is yours, it’s just how I was able to mine the most enjoyment out of what was there.

      My main idea is to not let someone see your comment and assume that that’s how the game is and there’s not another way to enjoy it or any clear ways to identify where content you’d want to play begins and ends, I was able to figure out and selective play the parts I enjoy, but even still there is content in that game that I skip because it’s, definitively, not fun. Even still, it’s become one of my favorite games of all time, but no one game is for everyone, thanks for the mature discussion, sincerely!
