What makes a good fangame?
« on: November 25, 2012, 04:47:46 pm »

What is it that determines whether an IWBTG fangame is good or bad?
Is it the difficulty?
Consistency?
Variety?
Uniqueness?
References?
Retroness?
Epic bosses?
Or a combination of the above?
Discuss.

Shouldn't fun be 100%?

What does any of this even mean?

What are you rating "quality" by?

And Storyyeller is right, if it's only 10% fun then I wouldn't go near it.

In my opinion, nowadays, a lot of people appraisal the fangame only quality.
So fangame's graphics are better and better, but "Fun" is down and down.

But if it looks like crap, it's a lot less likely to be fun because it means the author probably just didn't care. The two are highly correlated.

Again I agree with Storyyeller.

Everything. You just can't focus on one or two sides of the game, because those other sides will be weak points and may make your game look bad to some. This applies to any game as well, not just fangames.
