This is about all those flash browser games that only allow you to perform a limited amount of actions, till you reach 0 available actions, the limitation is then slowly removed.
Usually you see this as an ENERGY resource in those type of games.
You basically play the game and with every step loose 1 energy and then it's like "STOP HAVING FUN!".
I don't get what's the point of that and how come those type of games still survive. Threads on other forums ended with the conclusion that all those players are complete idiots, but let's be serious what's actually getting people so hooked up with limited fun?
Personally i play till i exhausted all energy and then move on to the next best thing and so on ...
What's worst with these flash games is that if you create a massive amount of accounts to justify your stay in that game, you either get blocked or banned. So how the hell are you supposed to enjoy such games if not at least through accounts that coop. Is really everyone who's enjoying those games either rich or just another alt?
Just imagine alteil allowing you to play only x amount of games, where x is your total energy that gets replenished slowly over the day.
