Yes, these things were weird, and yes, they were ubiquitous in 8-,16-, and even 32-bit games. But why stay fixated on such long-irrelevant game-design choices when so many current developers are finding new ways to make fools of themselves every week?Above: Hardly anyone makes mine cart levels anymore. Time to move onIn the past few years, a number of trends just as inexplicable as exploding barrels have spread like wildfire among game designers, to the point that a lot of games seem to rely on them (however paradoxically) to be noticed. Over the following seven entries, we’ll examine some of the most egregious ones and try to get to the bottom of why developers love this stuff so much.7. Gravelly Voices Why do they love them? Why is it that every male lead character outside of Nathan Drake has to sound like some 40-year smoking veteran named Aunt Ethel chainsaw-battling an angry wolverine when he talks? This is what we like to call “forced cool.” Yeah, Marcus Fenix is kind of cool, but so is anyone with 28-inch biceps who sounds like he eats smoldering ashtrays for breakfast. Obviously, it takes so much effort to craft a good character with subtle wit and subdued badassery (like James Bond or Han Solo) that most developers simply cannot be se in Point: Alex Mercer (Prototype)By what right does Alex Mercer deserve his deep baritone? He s a hoodie fanatic who constantly hides his face and believes he s been deeply wronged by the powers that be. That pretty much only qualifies him to be a whiny emo kid.6. Hoods, masks and helmets Why do they love them? Developers enjoy waxing philosophical about the reason they choose not to reveal their character s face. They ll tell you all about how it allows players to become more immersed in the character, because on some level, they believe the character could really be them! If you want the realistic truth, though, it s because they don t want to spend the time or the resources to develop decent facial animations, and they couldn t think of any other reason why the character s face would be perpetually constipated during gameplay. So they cover his face in a hood or a space helmet and call it a day. Also, hair is a bitch to se in Point: Altair (Assassin s Creed)Supposedly, Altair hides his face because he doesn t want to be noticed in a crowd, or identified. But seriously, what sticks out more in a crowd than a guy in a giant white robe who hides his face and creepily stalks around? Admit it, Ubisoft: the hood was just for cool points.5. ParkourWhy do they love it? We suspect that, at some point during the development of Assassin s Creed, the developers at Ubisoft decided they needed some way to make things a bit more X-TREME. And since Altair with a BMX bike would have been a little silly, they had to find another extreme sport that fit more readily within the context of brutal-yet-subtle-murder. Thus, parkour suddenly became THE way to get around in games, and apparently it s never going to go away, no matter how little sense it se in Point: inFAMOUSSeriously, why did having electric superpowers make Cole really good at climbing things in inFAMOUS? Couldn t they have at least come up with some kind of silly lore-driven workaround, like those micro-fibers on Spider-Man s fingertips?4. Unreal Engine 3Why do they love it? Unreal Engine 3 has become so synonymous with big-budget Western games that simply announcing you ll be using it gets your game headlines. Developers don t use it because they necessarily want to, but rather because using Unreal Engine 3 automatically guarantees the game will be considered graphically superb by a gaming world which dubs that which is shiniest, se in Point: DamnationWhen Gears of War pioneered the “Unreal Engine 3 look” on consoles, it inspired years of wannabes to come chasing after its coveted aesthetic of “dirty and gritty, with a thick coat of saliva.” Damnation is a prime example, aping the weathered look of the Gears games, but none of their playability or charm. It’s also proof that “Unreal Engine 3” doesn’t necessarily mean “good-looking,” as anyone who’s seen it running for more than five minutes can attest.3. Genre-Mashing Why do they love it? A game developer who mashes two genres together reeks of the same desperation as a starving gamer running to the fridge at 2 a.m. only to find it barren. A developer who exclaims, platforming-first-person-shooter-adventure- MMO! is just like that starving gamer, who in our example goes on to craft the curious culinary concoction of stale spaghetti with mustard and a Powerbar on a sesame seed bun. We can all agree that it was interesting, but most of the time we end up swearing we ll never try it se in Point: MAGOK, so, wait: Each game is like an RTS, but only for one person on each team? And that person gives orders to a bunch of sergeants, who are playing an RTS/FPS hybrid? And those sergeants then relay commands to 230 other soldiers, who are playing a pure FPS? And it s sort of like an MMO too?Right.2. TalkingWhy do they love it? No group of people on this earth is more fond of digging their own graves than temperamental game designers. This is not precisely a rare bird; whether it s Denis Dyack going off on his latest tirade, or Peter Molyneux telling us all that his latest masterwork is going to be so powerful it will make grown men commit Natal pedophilia with Milo, we ve certainly no shortage of daytime drama here in the videogame industry. And yet developers continue to run their mouths faster than their teams can work, with the end result being disappointment and skepticism after too much se in Point: Peter Molyneux I reckon that Project: Ego [Fable 1] is going to be the greatest role-playing-game of all time, which is insane. I could say the second greatest, I could say quite good, I could say, ‘Hmmmm, it s quite nice,’ but I m going to say greatest game of all time. Peter Molyneux, in an interview with Xbox Nation, July 20031. SequelsWhy do they love it? So what if most sequels demand you spend the next few years of your life developing something soulless just for the money? It s so freakin easy! Use the same engines and art assets from the last game, throw in a few more characters onscreen, add some zombies, and BOOM! Payday! That said, it s hard to blame the developers for this, considering it s the gamers who continue to purchase this stank-ridden swill. Seriously, who is it that s still buying Dynasty Warriors?Case in Point: Halo 3: ODSTWe don t know how good Halo 3: ODST will be, but what we do know is that it s blatant brand-name sequel filler that s being pushed out onto the market for the sake of filling another fiscal quarter with a Halo game. It may turn out to be a fantastic game, but let s all be realistic: this is a cash-in title that exists for the sole purpose of keeping the seat warm for Halo 4.(source:gamesradar) 文章导航Previous Previous post: 手游和主机游戏研发应互相学习什么?下一条 Next post: 张柏芝、谢霆锋和王菲,怎么都能在一起! 本站CDN由UPYUN又拍云强力驱动. 关于我们 | 加入我们 | 联系我们 | 版权声明 © 爪游控 版权所有. 陕ICP备号-1 Top
