Progression, isn't it great?
It used to be that video games only rewarded you with game scores. The satisfaction was always at the end, and all that mattered was getting there.
Nowdays it's more Kerouac-esque,where the journey matters more than the end game. Getting there is now fun. Games like shooters are fighters are implementing experience based gameplay where there was only mindless fun before. Call of Duty, Battlefield 2, and other games now have rewards that traditional rpgs have had for ages. Taken down five people, earn a reward. Play twenty matches, earn another reward. Little by little you are rewarded for things and it looks like we can continue the tradition with Load Save!
