What did the game do that appealed to your senses and not only drew you to join the community forums, but also seek to play the game? Was it the lore? The gameplay? A unique feature that intrigued you? Is it the studios pedigree, and simply that you trust and admire their work? Was it purely the dinos? (Lol)
In the industry there are a lot of copy paste games out there with very little to discern themselves, yet there is always that game that has 1 or 2 changes that makes it head and shoulders above the competition. Maybe it could be aesthetic. Could be a mechanic or a lack of one. Could be the theme. Its different for everyone, but I find it fascinating how even the littlest change can draw someone in. For me, what initially pulled me in was the dinos, but the gameplay mechanics explained so far have got my interest. Im interested to see where everyone else is coming in from.
Who knows. This may even help shape development because maybe it will emphasis or help expand on some features that maybe the devs didnt think were getting much attention.
