It's no different to killing random NPC civilians on GTA(Original post by Another)
Well I've clearly never made it that far... I got bored way too quickly
Even so, it's like the difference between playing ludo/monopoly with family and friends, or playing vs a computer. Sure the computer might have the best ever calculated moves, but all the joy is effectively sucked out of it. Whereas videogames are usually the same amount of enjoyment both on and offline [Unless you're a huge chess-o-phile that is.]
Why doesn't a game like chess have the appeal of other video games? watch

Maybe some gamers like to do random sandbox type stuff to relax, doing activities that only require 3 brain cells before they go to bed
Maybe some gamers like detailed strategy in animated 3D and extra cutsequences
Maybe some gamers like to fantasise about being a superhero with a giant sword
Games cater to many, chess caters to few.

Erm no. It depends on the level of difficulty you select. At the highest setting, the bot picks the best possible moves, which often tend to be extremely random and unpredictable; even chess grandmasters struggle against bots.

I try to introduce chess as a game to my friends and they are all like 'meh not my thing' or 'yeah i rather play this game' but I don't really get it. A game like chess is the pinnacle of strategic thought, it has a relatively low number of rules that you have to learn, but great depth in the actual game.
and it feels satisfying as **** to outplay someone in a game of chess whether it's by foreseeing a grand combo that crushes your opponents defenses, or by coming up with a superior long term plan to slowly grind out a win.

Chess with friends! App!
It's what I play! It's awesome! Can play like 40 people at once if you so wish.
Only problem is you have a game following you all day, and waiting on your opponent but Good to pass time as well if you're travelling.
Not good if you get drunk and notice a notification, done some terrible moves with that lol
