Very interesting, but in the same time you can fool the computer as well ...

lol There is a tactic to RPS that works only in real life. I use it all the time to beat my nephews. Anyways, when you swing your arm down, hold back a split second so when your opponent releases his hand and shows either rock/paper/scissors you can counter it by swinging down with something that will defeat your opponent's play and they won't notice because it's just a little bit of lag :P it looks legit. Try it. Works for me every time.

yes you can fool the computer which is apart of human intelligence. why would a computer logically compute to cheat if it was never programed to do so.

once you add in every emotion logic and reason that a human has
then maybe a computer can start to scare us.

sorry that my comment is off topic but i just wanted to put it out there. and now i am on a quest on veteran mode.

** after 10 rounds i managed to get 3 wins on veteran :D 2 ties and the rest losses.

I played on Veteran, first to 10.

Got 3 wrong to start with but I finished:

10 Wins
5 Ties
5 Loses

Its about being random, and also patterns.
Humans don't understand randomness that much and tend to overcomplicate things that should not require thinking.
