To pattern or not to pattern? That is the question!

OK cheesy title I know! Some of you might be wondering why I would even consider trying a pattern especially considering that my last post I got my best score ever in Berzerk.

Why is really the best question for me to answer. It's because I'm curious. I love Berzerk so I want to know everything about it and after trying my hand at it tonight I can say with certainty that I doubt I will EVER depend on a pattern to get a new high score in Berzerk.

I tried several pattern games tonight and I just couldn't stand it, it took all the fun out of the game for me, I didn't realize until tonight that the major enjoyment I get out of the game was from NOT knowing what was going to come next.

Now to anyone reading this, please don't think I'm slamming people that use a pattern to get scores in Berzerk, I'm not! Personally I believe they should be tracked differently, but that is another conversation for another time.

For myself, I just can't do it, it takes the fun out of the game for me, knowing what is going to be coming next. Give me free play/random play any day! I'll break 200,000 points soon! It's just a matter of time!
