Chess. Sometimes I love it, and sometimes I hate it.

Not really much you can do with Chess that is different...

Not true at ALL IMO. Chess simulators all suffer from a randomness problem. The only thing developers can do tot vary up difficulty is to give the AI a certain ration of times it'll make the best possible.

So sometimes it'll see the absolute PERFECT move to a frustrating degree, and there's no tricking it. And other times it'll miss the queen sitting diagonal from a pawn.

Point is...there's still a lot of room for improvement and evolution in the genre.

That is, until they solve the game :p
