I generally prefer arcade. Another assumption (besides "it depends"), is how extreme we're comparing. In this case, STILL arcade, as I prefer the "fantasy" and simplicity of that to "real world".
My "depends" comes into play where there are of course exceptions (though I can't think of any for the time being).
I'm also not sure how far we're going to take it with "simulation". For example, Virtua Fighter is supposed to be "the realest deal it could get", citing "there are no projectiles nor subhuman moves. All the fighting styles are as true to their actual forms". However, it still has some "floaty physics". :|paralipsis wrote:Well, we had one board gamer have this sort of attitude.

Sometimes the questioner gets past that by forcing a choice: e.g., If you could only play one or the other, which would you choose?
Here, Gabe asks two questions, but only one gets answered.
But some of us are so verbose we'll say something more no matter what the question is or how it's phrased.
