Gamebooks? A totally new genre to me, but I think I'm starting to understand it. Thanks!

自在猫: Thank you! And I'm wondering what kind of gameplay can it be. It seems I need to go through a lot of dialogues ... like reading a novel?

Thanks from bringing me some good old memories. "House of Hell" was one of my favorite FF's books. True Survival Horror in "CYOA" form.
Horror, partial nudity, devil worship,decadence and psychological horror. I don't even know how they still publish the book (although I think the original illustrations have been changed for the new editions).
Thanks for the giveaway! :)

Wishmaster777: Your comment has not turned it into a game. It is still an electronic book, like it used to be.

skirtish: Your deficient comprehension of the word "game" is on you, there's strictly no need to bug other people for it.
The irony. You must be joking, right.
thank you kindly :)
A lot of awesome giveaways in a row now.

I have internally debated how best to react to you.

The obvious and easy option would be replying in kind with just another quip or terminating the conversation altogether. This allows everyone to move on believing what they want and seems to be the way you'd like to go. As it is by definition not productive, I decided against it.

Another option was to link for you materials such as the etymology of the word, the various current dictionary and encyclopedia definitions, even philosophical treatises on the subject of games. I also considered a more practical approach, quoting examples from culture like film, literature or actual children's or folk games. This would end it factually for anyone with a permissive approach to communication but since any of these are pretty easy to look up and yet you either haven't or have chosen to reject them, I decided against it.

I have the feeling that you aware of them in any case. It is not that you don't know that a great many people understand the word different from you, it's that you think they are all wrong and it is you that truly understands the word. So let me ask what you have learned about the nature of games that, given this abundance of support of a less reductive definition, it is yours that is exclusively correct and people should go find new names for all these other things.

I'm trying to keep an open mind, but please let it be something more thought out than "everyone should model their mind maps after my own".

Just as a general rule, people don't change their minds if challenged, quite the contrary, they fortify their position. But public debates aren't for the purpose of changing the other's mind, but for any neutrals or undecided in the audience, so whether it's worth it or not and how to go about it should be determined by thinking of it from that perspective. And a thread for a now-finished giveaway is likely to have next to zero continued audience, so...

I don't expect or even hope to accomplish anything here, but as a matter of principle and in spite of odds or general rules I do choose an optimistic approach in keeping communication channels open even with the inconvincible. I understand why you consider it useless but would very respectfully disagree about whether it's worth my time and for what purposes I speak, publicly or not. :)

Yeah, so let everyone model it after yours. Genius. Haha, what a hypocrite.
