Repetition in Video Games is Great

Repetition in video games, it seems to be a love hate kinda thing. Either you're smitted for the grind and the slow, steady progress or you hate the very thought or retreading the same ground over and over.

On this episode of Gaming: The Podcast, John and Stace discuss how repetition in games is, however, about much more than grinding and forced replication of action - it's ultimately about enabling creativity, reward, mastery and much more.

Repetition gets a bad rap, so let's talk about it.

Gaming: The Podcast is released every Tuesday and is brought to you by Indie By Design, creators of books and podcasts that delve into the history, culture and design of video games.

A video version of this podcast is available on YouTube.
