It's subjective either way...

Someone who creates sliders "fine tunes" them based on either his own vision of what is "realistic" or by "statistics". Neither one make a game realistic. It may make for a better experience, but games aren't built to be 100% realistic. A few more homeruns, errors, passed balls, and diving catches out of the box is entertainment.
But would'nt you want a better experience? Instead of being served the same default gameplay for as long as the game is in your possesion? Its only subjective when the point of creating the sliders is to make the gameplay more realistic than the default settings. But thats not the reason most ppl make slider sets. Pared made some good points about flaws that ship with the game. Some sliders sets are created to fix these flaws thus being considered "realistic" sliders. I dont think I can name a game that had everything perfect right out the box. And keep in mind, perfect does'nt exactly mean realistic. It means that each and every function works and in todays games, none come out perfect.

Re: Posts I'll Never Understand

I feel like slider options are vital for most sport games.

As a consumer I want to have as many options as possible. Every player has different tastes and that's where sliders come in handy.

Let's say you buy a game and you really dislike one aspect of it. Without sliders you wouldn't be able to correct it. I want to have that option.

There's nothing in the manual that says if you play the game you must tinker with the sliders. If you don't like messing with sliders then don't do it but don't begrude other people that do it.

I don't think that's what Fossen is saying (at least I hope not).

He's making an argument that the obsession that sliders can actually fix certain things is something he doesn't understand, if I'm not mistaken.

It's not a clear argument, and it might be he just doesn't understand posts ABOUT how they (a person) can't play a game unless there is a good slider set out. I agree somewhat, but if it's against sliders in general...

Re: Posts I'll Never Understand

which reminds me, I am working on some Madden 2006 sliders right now. I know the game isn't out yet but I am doing them in my head.

Gorilla throwing Barrels at Plumber is the action that would be adjustable by slider (e.g. Throwing Accuracy, Contact Percentage, Long Range). The objective of the event, however, is barrel jumping....
