HOME is NOT a game!

13 replies 1 views Edited May 8, 2007
I seem to notice in multiple threads that alot of folks here on the forum seem let down by hame. They say its a boring game, or i cant wait to play it, or im gunna be the best at it.
Home is not a game its more of an online 3D forum like this in a way. Its a GUI (graphical user interface) version of an instant messanger combined with add ons that you access other members content as well as 3rd party stuff. Sure you can play games against other users but you can do that with yahoo messanger too and i have never heard anyone say how the game of YIM was boring. This is cause everyone knows its not a game.

To be fair you can play around alot in home. Yopu can shop and buy furniture and show off cool trophys you get from various games.. so thats cool.

But im afraid alot of people who really dont know what it is are going to spread bad mojo around..

My 2 cents worth...

I agree; this is something I said a long time ago.  An interactive xmb with a few bells and whistles is how I look at Home.  I'm afraid people's expectations are gonna cause them a lot of disappointment over this.  Ah well.

no, as defined by the great game industry developers years and years ago, virtual networking worlds are not games.


thanks for a hugely exciting topic to further your sense of well being.
