The Daily Grind: What game are you happy about even though it isn't for you?

Eliot Lefebvre

EVE Online is not a game that I play, nor is it one that I want to play on a regular basis. But it is a game that needs to exist and one that I'm happy to see improving. I was happy to take a peek at it at PAX East this year because it's a game for a very different audience but one that is at the same time well-designed and very cohesive. It's not for me, but I'm glad it's out there.

Of course, there are a lot of games out there that aren't for everyone, but sometimes we gamers are bad at appreciating games targeting another audience. Despite that, there are several games like EVE Online, games I don't want to play but about whose existence I'm still happy. What about you? What game are you happy about even though it's not for you? What game's triumphs make you cheer despite your having no desire to play?
