Awesome idea, but I'd throw in these caveats:

 

1. Add a single player mode to any group games. Some of us are angry loners.

 

2. Make it playable when the owner isn't there.

 

3. Watch the slot consumption. I know that's hard, but Game Mechanics has been really great about it.

 

Put me down for foosball, air hockey and UNO.


I am with you on that. I want the Game Mechanics plaque so bad but I know I will never get it because I will never get 12 ppl to play at once with me. Smiley Sad I honestly wish devs would stop making rewards that require a ton of other people to play with you.

They should have an angry loaners reward.

The above comment is my opinion, unless I state a fact. You can disagree with my opinion, but facts are facts.

What if I told you that you could go to a club and earn it with 11 other people there? For that Reward you have to own a machine, but you can earn it on any machine.

You've caught my eye GameMechanics. I would totally dig a pool table, bowling and darts games! The ones they have out now are out of date and cost too many spaces.

Not sure if this has been covered yet, but it'd be amazing if it were a bit easier to type while you were playing. I just played the Godfather II poker game yesterday, which required you to actually pause the game, and hit triangle, and type on the default window that takes up the entire screen (which only people without physical keyboards will ever need).

 

All of this is a relatively slow process. I know it only takes about 5-10 seconds, but it feels like forever when you're having a conversation using an already time-consuming method of typing. Some people don't even have keyboards or are fast typers, and not every game allows you to see that your friend is typing. A slow typer using a controller having to navigate through a slow menu is incredibly distracting. So, if you won't allow us keyboard users to just start typing, at least only make us have to hit Triangle, and don't make us wait for that giant, blinding virtual keyboard to pop up when we already have a physical keyboard.

You should try our game and let me know if this is what you are talking about. I think we have it as you desire in our current game.

 

BTW, you can try someone elses machine without having to bet. You can just observe. So this is perfect for you to be able to test the chat and get back to me.

 

We absolutely listen to everyone here and try and do it exactly as described.

We did our best to make it easy. They just have to all join. They don't have to bet.

 

Just tell them that the machine seems to be broken and is giving out free coins.
