Is there a reason Boots of Evasion exist? in Pillars of Eternity: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted September 24, 2015 Hmm, can't say I can recall a game where RNG loot has given me any worthwhile replay value, let alone huge. I've found deep gameplay systems that allow for multiple ways of accomplishing the same goal, that are satisfying to execute, give replay value. The chance to get different gear than I got last time? I can't see that making me want to play through something again. Counterpoint: Risk of Rain. While certainly not entirely motivated by random loot, it is without a doubt an RNG driven game whose replay value is largely influence by the loot system. It's really a paragon of RNG-done-right, all things considered. For a very short game (I can complete it in just 15 minutes probably, if I was in a hurry) it gains amazing replayability and fun from its RNG systems. One thing I don't disagree with is that RNG, in unexperienced or unintelligent hands is a dangerous tool and has been the bane of many otherwise-good games, not to mention a contributing factor in many bad ones. And, whilst I feel the execution could have been better in PoE, my final conclusion is that (personally) it's very far from souring the experience for me.
