Deep puts me to sleep. Do I really feel like starting another potentially 45 minute game just so I can come up short again? Potentially exciting, sure, but almost always aggravating and disappointing. Rather than "one more game!" I need a nap.
My favorite game ever now is Rick and Morty. Not a deep ruleset, a WIDE ruleset. Between the many Adventures and the dozens of Dimensions, no two games are the same. Some Dimensions even affect your ability to complete the current Adventure, while others can make them more lucrative! And it took a while to click for me, but the AntiGravity (magnasave) implementation is so fun and rewarding that other games feel like they are missing something now. Plus it's the funniest game I ever played. Funnest and funniest!
So I suppose in a way I have been spoiled by modern code, as this recent game has me ignoring all my other games for going on a year now!
(Unfortunately it needs a lot of tweaking and dialing in to get it playing right. So much so that it's like two different games, untweaked R&M and dialed in R&M. Would that only examples of the latter got rated! On some, it's apparently impossible to hit the garage shot. I make it ten or twenty times a game...)
