Quoted from sethi_i:
That was my point...
That isn't much of a point to make.
A good game is still very much earned, it's just *a lot* more points than it was before. It's not like people are going to be competing or comparing scores across different versions of the game. You said the point inflation was "concerning", and that makes no sense. Who cares? Do you not like larger numbers? Afraid the high score won't be able to fit on the display?
