This discussion topic has been bouncing around in my head for a while.
It seems to me that the terms “gateway” and “introductory” are almost... derogatory toward the games they get applied to. They seem to imply that the games that get labeled this way aren’t really worth the time of “serious” gamers. I don’t think that it’s right to label games in this fashion.
So - Let’s change it up then. What would be a better name for such a game? Or, do you think it’s fine as it is, and if so, why do you think that way? I’m curious to see what you all think!
