What game is fun when you can't lose? Not atleast dwarf fortress where the end goal is to have "Fun" (INSERT HORRIBLE DEATH).
I don't get it either. People can't handle losing I guess. Lots of new games are like this, i think WoW started it. My son's Lego games... you die and respawn on the spot, you just lose a bit of money. His skylanders game is the same way. Its made so that anyone can win, even the worst games players.
Like Thermal Expansion, or extra utilities. They will say that ic2's power system is 'keeping them from moving on to new projects' but no one can ever say what that is. In reality they just failed, blew up a bunch of stuff, and their fragile egos couldnt take it, so they gravitate towards mods designed to guarantee that you succeed.
