GO WATCH A MOVIE 

Next up on Worth Reading: The other team should just fucking let me win when I play baseball. 

well this isn’t necessarily a bad point. there are games with great stories and really awful shoehorned fighting sequences. then you also have handicapped/disabled gamers who don’t necessarily have the dexterity to finish a game but would still like to be able to.
optional “cakewalk” modes aren’t that bad of an idea.

what if i want to just see the story of the game and dont want to actually play it? like??
as it is i would never pay for a bioshock game or a fallout game but i am very interested in the story. so i just watch youtube videos of it. they could get money from me if they sold the skip combat mode

i’m a games developer and an avid gamer and i really really think games should let you skip combat

honestly one of my favourite things about la noire was when you failed a sequence twice the game was like “yo do you just wanna skip this bit?”the gaming industry/community has a huge problem with accessibility tbh. like, thank god for standardised control schemes (although bring back full customisation jfc  not enough games have that anymore) but fights require time, literacy in both that type of gaming & in the individual game, you need to be able to navigate the system which can be anywhere from slightly difficult to hellish for people with visual/audio processing disorders. and tbh sometimes you just wanna enjoy the story and not get stressed the hell out doing the sAME FIGHT 700 times. it’s why i always put a game on easy/casual when I’m replaying unless  i’m specifically going for difficulty based achievements.not to mention SO MANY GAMES have either poorly designed battles or fights that have been shoved in for no reason other than to pad out the game (dxhr & da2 come to mind immediately) that sometimes it’d honestly improve the gameplay to just skip them altogether

Imagine if you were a gamer with arthritis or MS or some other disability that took away your ability to click buttons quickly, and every fight became as frustrating as THAT GODDAMN DA: ORIGINS OH FUCK I’M ON FIRE SLIDE PUZZLE. 
Yeah. Skipping combat might seem like a not bad idea then.

 Movie Pitch
 A strict all girls boarding school is across a river
 from a strict all boys boarding school
 Boys and girls are forbidden from fraternizing,
 but they find sneaky ways to form friendships
 and even date. I assume there is heavily
 monitored internet and phones are for
 emergencies only so they have to resort to
 more unconventional methods of
 communication. (Messages in bottles, a system
 of mirrors, writing on chalkboards and putting
 them in the windows ect.ect.)
 Until one day a shy boy at the boys boarding
 school tells his best friend (and the leader of a
 resident well meaning bovs gang) that he
 actually feels more like a girl
 The gang leader contacts the leader of a girl
 gang across the river and they begin to plan an
 overly elobrate heist to smuggle the shy trans
 girl across the river in exchange for a chill
 tomboy and the two will assume each other's
 lives until they graduate.
 Hijinks ensue as they pull a 'Great-Esacpe'
 style mission to avoid detection from the overly
 strict headmasters and an overly passionate
 team of campus security guards.
 Friendships are tested, there is lots of home
 alone style logic to outsmart the adults, and
 there is romantic tension between the leaders
 of the gangs as they put aside their differences
 to help their two friends find a place to be
 themselves. It is light-hearted in tone but is
 also over the top and everyone plays it way too
 serious to the point of comedy. The two kids
 swapping places have classic "parent trap"
 style hijinks pretending to be the other person
 and avoid detection.
 Think "kids next door""recess" but shot like
 a heist movie.
 Add a funny character actor as a dopey but
 well meaning janitor and you got a stew going.
