posted this on the buildmart reddit thread but figured i'd share my 2 cents on tumblr too:
i'm not really knowledgable enough about minecraft nor the mcc games to contribute to the discourse about what needs to be changed/removed/rotated/etc so i hope i'm not overstepping here... but this is the only opinion i have:
i don't hate any of the games on mcc at allllll - i only hate watching people genuinely not enjoy themselves. so if there's a game that causes frequent distress and drops in mood/morale, then yeah i would like for something to be changed. because not everyone has to be good at every game, but i think every game should have a capacity of bringing enjoyment to every single player despite their strengths and weaknesses.
i know that's a lot more easier said than done, but i just feel like if there's several players who say that there is not a single thing they enjoy about a particular game (like many do with build mart), i would agree that something should be revised. i know build mart has already been changed up quite a bit from what it started off as, but making it look prettier hasn't really changed the goal of the game at all which is what i think so many people struggle with :( maybe there could be more/different opportunities for people to get coins in different ways, for people who struggle with visualisation/short term memory, colours/textures?
i don't think it should be removed (nor rotated, since there's a lot of participants who have building as their main strength and it's essentially the only game where actually building takes place) but i'm sure there's a way to make it more enjoyable for at least 99% of the participants :) not everyone has to love it, but there's gotta be a way to change it up so not as many people genuinely despise it, ya know? :')
