Games have their own personality

This thread on 2+2 starts out mentioned something out tough games then people try to comment on that by a reference to tough players.

A tough player and a tough game aren't the same thing. A tough game might be made up of tough players, but the characteristics of the game is about the dynamics of the players, about how they interact, not about the indidividual charcteristics of the players.

I'm making a somewhat subtle distinction, but I think it's a really important one.

Its a good distinction, too. After all, sometimes you can be at a table of donkeys, but it'll be a tough table because of the way the action plays out. Other times, you can be at a table with 50% of more stellar players, but there is enough donators/donations to make it a softer game. Good point.
