So . . . I am trying to figure out if you are claiming Mario Party is competitive or you believe casual gaming is completely unfun.

Want something noncompetitive? Play ARAM or something.

You sound lonely.

You can play the game and want to win, but you just sound like a tool.

Mario Party is a casual game... it's meant for low-commitment, "for fun, no serious" game play. Competitive games, like LoL, need to stay competitive. I have fun in both casuals and competitive games. I play LoL for the competitiveness.

What I'm trying to say is that if you're a casual gamer, play casual games. LoL is not a casual game and should never be a casual game. It should always be competitive and taken seriously. It should be played like a sport, because that's what competitive games are. You wouldn't call Street Fighter a casual game, and you wouldn't call Mario Party a competitive game. Don't call LoL a casual game, it's not and has no need to be.

Dominion will be just as competitive as SR is. Over time, it'll have its own meta game and viable picks. That's just how competitive games work. There will be a tier list, there will be overpowered champions, there will be good and bad items, there will be unbalance. You have to accept that.

Family games on Mario Party end up with someone losing about $100 and rage, id say it is pretty competitive.

rofl, just because someone bets $100 on a game that's about randomness and party play, AKA casual, doesn't mean it's competitive.

I could bet $100 on a game of Barney's Hide and Seek with someone. Does that mean it's competitive? Afraid not.

The definition of "Competition" is a contest between 2or more sentient organisms in wich the winner will get a reward af any sort (Fame, Money, Territory, Food etc.)

So yes, betting on Hide and Seek against someone is a form of competition.

Your trolling does not amuse me.

Even single player games are competitive in a somewhat metaphysical manner, since it is challenging yourself to accomplish something.

Played Super Meat Boy? It feels like a giant competition on who loses, the wall by you or Fetus Boy.
