Hmmm, he's got a good point. Though what about the investment during the game? I remember being quite surprised at how many people considered the ability to alt-tab in and out of games to be EXTREMELY important. I couldn't figure out why. I know some of the more heathenistic gamers would turn off the in-game music an play their own, but that doesn't take much alt-tabbing.

Well, it turns out that they've got to answer an instant message. Or an email. Or a tweet. Or check up on facebook. Or Weather Bug says there's a chance of rain 18 hours from now and they have to look up the details. Or whatever. Of course they are going to have troubles with complexity! I wouldn't be able to make it through a 10x10 maze, either, if people pestered me about what I planned to have for dinner every 90 seconds.
