Exploration vs. Exploitation, as it relates to artificial intelligence in games.

Exploration is a good thing, because it compels the player to experiment with new battle tactics without being punished by instant death from cheap enemies. On the other hand, stubborn enemies that can always be exploited with one tactic or attack is a classic sign of bad A.I. (Think: every Zelda boss fight you've ever played.) Unfortunately in most games, “rewards are high for finding an exploit, and punishment high for trying something new,” he says.
