Defining The System, Testing The Mechanics

Platform Nation: I was talking to a friend over the weekend. He’d recently finished up Far Cry 3 and was about to start Dishonored. After some gentle ribbing at the fact that he was so laughably behind the times (“that was sooooo 2012,” to which he unfortunately but appropriately told me I was “so two thousand and late“), we got down to brass tacks and talked about what he liked and didn’t like about the game. The usual bits came up such as loving the open world and liberating outposts but hating the bulk of the story missions. However, one thing continually stuck in my craw: he kept using “system” and “mechanic” interchangeably. (Culture)
