Please do this!
In an attempt to make this a topic and not
just a demand for attention:
If you are an author, do you encourage others to talk about their reactions to your game directly to you? In a more immediate text chat/back-n-forth? Live reactions while doing a blind playthrough? Thoughtful responses afterward through email or some other long-form communication?
Do you prefer reviews or other indirect reactions (indirect being like, bringing it up in conversation in this forum or tumblr blog post, whether or not they @ you)?
Would you rather never hear anyone speak about your game ever because you fear the mortifying ordeal of being known (if so I cannot relate but you are so valid)?
If you are a player, do you enjoy the idea of directly talking to the author about your live reactions, or would you rather keep them to yourself, perhaps writing a review later? Do you hate the idea of talking to the author in a sort of ‘never meet your heroes’ way (odd choice in this community but you are still so valid)?
Or something else?
(It is still morally correct to slam into my DMs and talk about my games to me. Compliments or Critiques.
Just no death threats. That cancels out the morality)
