Because this is the place for long-form content  
I wrote this on IRC and I feel like sharing it with you. My name (over and over) omitted.

final fantasy crystal chronicles my life as a darklord
it's a tower defense game
tower defense pisses me off because it falls into the category of "games that eventually get impossibly hard"
might sound weird but i don't like games where it gets harder as you go along
the point of these games is you're supposed to learn and hone your skills so you can face the challenges later
but i don't think game devs get that, i think they expect you to lose more often as you go along
which to me means there's less incentive to continue
anyway it's an interesting game because instead of building towers to ward off invaders, you're building FLOORS on a SINGLE tower.
but that basically means it's less flexible than your average tower defense game since you're putting attackers on a one-dimensional grid rather than two.
anyway that is the longest rant i have written in 5 years so read well.
or don't.

Games should get harder as they go along, but not to the point of impossibility. Well, you know. They should get more enriching in their challenge, I guess.
