Slot machine behaviors
« on: October 09, 2019, 06:40:29 pm »
The behaviors of slot machines in the Game corners are so much more complicated than meets the eye (Gen I, Gen II), and with many oddities that may be considered as glitches. However, our wiki's documentation of them is woefully incomplete. Presumably this is because: (1) It is difficult to argue whether any specific oddity should be a glitch, given that those behaviors are intended to be obscure, and (2) it is difficult to even describe any particular glitch about the slot machines without first explaining their behaviors in normal cases.

Given this, should we just have pages titled "Slot machine behaviors (Generation N)", with a section named "Oddities" or "Potential glitches", and let the readers decide for themselves whether they should count?
