By turning off the sound and music, you ruined part of the experience. A lot of what people appreciated about the game WAS the story. The way it starts out as a simple puzzle game, but then as you play you realize that there actually is a story, especially with the hidden rooms that you find. If you just rush through a game without looking around or appreciating the full experience, you'll get a distilled, boring, output, as you did.

If you had bothered to read the article, you'd see that the author has done JUST that. Not only did he prove (using proper statistical methods) that the results are significantly not random, he also dug up the exact javascript source code that does the shuffling and explained why it is faulty. RTFA!

EXACTLY. You, my friend have just summarized what is the absolute truth. True science fiction is not fully focused on the fictional science. It's a story involving drama, action, mystery, or what not in a fictional science setting.

Ender's Game was a war story, Dune was about a prophet, the I Robot series was a detective series. They all took place in a fictional science setting. THAT is science fiction.
