I think alot gamers have the need to "win" but I don't see this as the point of this game. Outcomes may be good or not so good based on decisions and circumstances. Its the freedom to experiment and tweak and see what happens next. Its that unknown outcome that's the fun when its revealed.
Thanks Dingbat for the introductory thread. I'm jkuci and I'm a big fan of this game in particular. I'm just looking around to getting started. I've added you as a friend. I'm sure I'll have more to say as time goes on ...I expect to play the game for many years to come.
