Yeah, I agree with you on this. As you guys well know I still have trouble w/the approach but once I break through things usually don’t go well when I plan individual lines (although sometimes if I’m stuck in a transition somewhere I might calculate a bit to help me thru).
However, that said, things usually ALSO don’t go well when I’m not using aspects of game at all–i.e. just talking. The times that I’ve been successful–even before I learned about the game stuff, I was doing things like push/pull, challenging, teasing, etc…just not labeling each and every move.
The thing is–game is really just a way of helping you understand what you’re doing–like my music theory example the other day. I agree that it doesn’t work so well as an algorithm (unless you actually buy into your own algorithm) because you come across as being completely phony.
