what do you like?
It really depends on what you mean by complicated and simple.
It can be complicated or simple in more than one way.
I like the middle - you get both.
Same here, I prefer both in every game. In the beginning of a game, things are simple and then later on they get challenging. Thats how I like it.
Thats also my type of game.
Impossible to say.
Super Mario bros and similar are fun as hell, and simple as hell.
Armored Core is incredibly fun, and complicated as hell.
A mix of both is the best, with games on the Wii and DS like Mario being simple and fun, and then switching to the PS3 or 360 to play the more complex games.
There is a concept that runs deep. It has perhaps most commonly been summarised with the phrase "easy to learn, hard to master" and it is this that best describes what I might seek.
Mix is good, cuz at one point you're like "Wow this game is damn easy!!" and later "WTF do I do!?!? STUPID GAME!!"
I like to immerse myself in the gameplay. so complicated is the road for me.
QFT. Games like Tetris, Mario Kart and FIFA follow this formula very well.
Simple to more complicated (accidentally voted Mix though, crap). Games with a gentle learning curve instead of a steep one helps me get more interested in it, and when I finally get the hang of it I would welcome a challenge. Complicated games with steep learning curves give me headaches most of the time, making me quit early. An exception is Monster Hunter, gotta love that game.
I don't care.
The game must be fun, that's all.
Simple games like Tetris, Mario, Sonic and Pokémon (among others) are ok for me.
Complicated games like, hmmm.... I don't know, Real Time Strategy games? They are ok for me too.
There are some games that ar so complicated that they are simply boring, thus not on my list. Prince of Persia Battles (The DS card game / RTS hybrid), for me, is one of these.
I don't think it's as simple as 'Complicated vs Simplicity'. In some games, the simplicity might just be boring, while in others, it's great. Same with complicated games, some might just not be good, or too complicated, and some might work magnificently.
I prefer hard games over simple ones.
After beating a hard game like Megaman you feel so proud of yourself.
After beating an easy game you feel that you wasted your time.
Both, I guess? I'm sorry, I still don't know where to draw the line bewteen simple and complicated.
Is The Legend of Zelda complicated? Is God of War complicated? Is Portal 2 complicated? Is Henry Hatsworth complicated?
I understand games like Mario and Call of Duty are simple, but I'm having issues on where the line is drawn.
I like games that go from simple to complicated because it keeps me interested.
It all depends on how you define complicated. Some games look simple but are in fact very deep. Pokemon is a good example, as it's as simple or as complex as you want to make it. You can mess about with IV's and EV's to breed the ultimate competitive team, or you can just catch stuff and beat the Elite Four.
I think those kinds of games are the best kind. Games that are easy to learn but allow for true masters who put the time in to reap extra rewards.
Also, it depends on my mood. There are times when I want to sink myself into a deep and epic RPG, saving the world from the evil villain du jour and helping my team through their various mental health issues along the way. But there are also times when I don't want that sort of burden. I want something basic. Something more along the lines of 'go here, shoot this'. In which case I tend to go for the more simplistic games like Contra and the like.
This isn't about hard or easy. A simple game isn't necessarily easy, nor is a complicated game necessarily hard.
