In a storyline-driven genre like role playing, a good setting can end up being a game's most important element.
yeah, having a game about pneumonia but taking place in South America would really get me immersed. :/
This piece mostly deals with RPGs, but has there been any recent setting as good as Rapture? I honestly can't think of many that were *that* well realized/interesting.
Yep. Half the reason I game is to go to interesting places and do interesting things. Which usually means "kill a lotta things," but still.
I find space relaxing, except in Mars Matrix.
