What is analysis paralysis? People mentioned it when talking about Tigris and Euphrates, and other action point games? Is it when a player stalls trying to decide what to do, or just an overload of information that lowers the fun factor of the game? Some one chime in and set me straight.

Analysis paralysis is when a player takes a long time deciding what to do, usually because there are a lot of options and all of the possible resulting actions/reactions to consider.

Analysis paralysis can be avoided in game design by giving the player less options or to give the player these options in more managable chunks.[ This message was edited by: zaiga on 01-05-2003 06:03 ]
