If we want to know what is possible in notgames, then we could take a look at L'annee derriere á Marienbad,
which showed what was possible in cinema 50 years ago.

Cinema is dead, I think we agree Wink Videogames are not dead, yet.

We should go for the limits, throw out all conventions immediately.
Don't think of pleasing the audience, the audience does not know what it is
looking for...

Good night.

Nice film.

I agree we should experiment.

But I don't think that excludes pleasing an audience. You are right: they don't know what they will like. But we know that, next to gamers, they are also humans. And we know how to please humans. We are human.

Not that pleasing needs to be the highest priority. Just that one doesn't exclude the other necessarily.

I would love to watch that film!

I think about pleasing your audience it's possible to please them, but maybe in a way they wouldn't expect.
Straying away from the walked paths may lead to new paths you are about to uncover.

Somewhere someone wrote that Marienbad is not the story, but it gives us the possibility
for a story, or it opens the space for story.

And the term posibility space is very well established in the gaming universe.

Make your own conclusions...
