Theory: *Stand-In* and Puzzle Pure Co-Ops

I wasn’t really satisfied with the terminology I used to discuss the types of pure co-ops in the previous post. “Simulation” sounded like it related to the theme of the game. Using that word was going to lead to definitional confusion; it needed to be changed.

I’ve revised the post to use “stand-in” instead of “simulation.” The new term should be clearer that the distinction is between co-ops whose AI imitates a human player and those whose AI does not.

In addition, I’ve added some more examples and cleaned up some wording. It’s an all-around better post now.

If you checked it out before, please take another look and let me know what you think of the changes. If you haven’t yet, try it on for size.
