Don't forget aesthetics. I guess that's separate from "the rules" but nonetheless important to the experience.

I'm sorry, I couldn't finish the list, there were too many fiddly words.

You know, about six of the eight could show up just as easily on a list of "Eight Reasons to Love a Wargame." The other two might still make the list, but you'd have to change a key word. When you like "fiddly" it's usually "period-specific" or "detailed." When you like "too many rules" it's either "detailed" or "comprehensive."

I really need to make up a list for book reviews, where there seems to be a positive and a negative term for everything you can say about a text, and almost no neutral ones.

Is this the reason why we hate so much?
