It's a simple, straightforward management game. Once you figure out the formula to successful releases, you can just reuse it. I wish there were random events that affect the gaming market. That would have increased the game's replayability.

When Game Dev Story introduced the idea of a game development sim to Japan in '97 and then the West in 2010, it was a novel concept that made overlooking its flaws easier. While Game Dev Tycoon is a superior experience with a better interface for its platform, it still suffers from the same pitfalls of monotony and lack of player feedback that Game Dev Story suffered from.

Overall I've enjoyed my time with Game Dev Tycoon creating my own gaming empire, regurgitating 'Mortal Wombat' every other year while attempting to create my own MMORPG involving zombies. It has been quite the time sink as there is that draw of "one more game" to it, just in this case you're developing one more game in the hopes of a blockbuster hit.
