Minor unrelated-to-programming tangential rant: Waaay too many gamers think they know what good game design is. I used to play Runescape a lot, but that sub frustrated me so much. So many players there making tons of gameplay-changing suggestions that really just equate to making the game easier for them. Worst of all, the developers cater to them and add little shortcuts all around the game. So now we're left with a game that in the past 6 years has evolved into something so un-enjoyable and has racked up so much technical debt that it takes them full update cycles to fix the tiniest of things.
