    I honestly think this applies to MOBAs exclusively. They have an addictive formula but you're miserable 95% of the time. That 5% is when you get a close game that you actually win.

      There are others. Dead By Daylight has one of the most toxic and objectively miserable communities in all of video games but like an abuse victim they continue coming back for that thin ray of sunshine when you get a match that doesn't crush your soul to dust.

      The only MOBA I ever played a lot of was Heroes of the Storm and I was always happy when playing that, unless it was a steamroller over our team, which only happened rarely, usually it was even.

      I never understood people that play MOBAS. I've tried Heroes of the Storm and Pokémon Unite and watched gameplay from League of Legends. How can people endure walking so fricking slow? Everything is on a fricking cooldown too, there doesn't seem to be any skill involved other than knowing when to press each button

    Probably WoW. Although I caught on pretty quickly, since I'd just dropped D2 and Runescape for being grindy skinnerbox games a year prior, so I was wise to WoW's bullshit. After a week of playing, I realized I'd wasted $50 + a $15 sub to grind mobs the exact same way that I had been in Runescape.

    Nu-fun can be easily translated into "addictive"vs fun.

      >Nu-fun can be easily translated into "addictive"vs fun.
      You don't even need to say "versus" the concept of nu-fun is literally just:

      > "Designed to exploit addiction in some way."

      Killing 1,000 generic mobs for a fractional drop rate or statistic on a rare item is nu-fun. (aka "no fun") Even if the player is involved with developing skills that make mastery over the combat system possible, or even finding exploits to make the drop happen more frequently... grinding out such a large number exists *solely* to exploit brain chemicals or neurotic or compulsive behaviors like "100% Completion"

      Never mind the perverse finance incentives that companies have with live-service games to keep the player online as long as possible. ("Engagement metrics")

        Agreed.
        I still have a problem with addiction (as a dev) because it's a very thin line to walk:
        I make the feeling of shooting in my game as good as possible, great sound, great gfx, big explosion on impact, little screenshake, enemy is pushed back by this hit. I want my player to feel good when he shoots. We can extrapolate this for any part of a game, chara movement, music, even story.
        So when feeling good stops and becomes addiction in a negative sense?

            "bingiable" series that have so many twist and turns that you don't go to sleep, are they addictive or not?
            Addiction starts when you put an hold to your real responsibility etc.
            WoW was addictive to many people or not?

    It's not that you are a conspiracy theorist, you just have bad taste in video games. And in my opinion there is nothing wrong with that.

    Clicker games typically have this feeling. It's fun for the first 20 minutes, but then it just becomes an incomprehensible slog of improving the most expensive high-output items until the cost outweighs their output..

    nu-fun is a zoomer thing, they only care about whatever is popular, thus force theirselves to play shit they don't like because streamers got paid to market/viral boring trash. If you are not enjoying a game stop playing it immediately.
