So I got to thinking - I definitely have trigger words and phrases that will prevent me from purchasing a game because I know the adjectives describe a type of gameplay that I generally am not into. A couple of the words and phrases that make me instantly disregard:
Hordes of enemies
Waves of X (x = zombies, enemies, aliens, toddlers…)
I’m definitely type-cast in the games I play I guess…
Sim games that brag about their “Newtonian Physics!” always make me wary. Normal physics is Newtonian—aka classical mechanics, as opposed to “Einsteinian” physics, or relativistic mechanics—so a simulator developer trying to hype their product as having Newtonian physics is like a used-car salesman trying to tout one of their products as having “a fully reciprocating engine, utilizing a four-stroke Otto cycle!”
Actually in many cases (especially when talking about space ships) they just mean it is real physics, and not “planes in space” like in Star Wars, almost every movie or most games, including my beloved Wing Commander games.
But it sound weird if you write “contains physics” because people don’t get that Star Wars and most others actually don’t use real physics.
So I think it is OK to write “Newtonian physics”. It means conservation of momentum and no drag in space. Such things. I wouldn’t call it bragging, IMO that’s too hard on them.
