How to make a good FPS Comrade 07/31/2020 (Fri) 00:59:54 No. 3393 [Reply]
What qualities make an FPS game good? I'm doing this so others can reference, and out of my own curiosity, here's what I know so far: Make the weapons unique and serve different functions, make enemies aggresive and varied, levels shouldn't be corridors, anything else?
8 posts omitted.
It completely depends on the type of FPS. Arena, tacical, sim, and other variations of FPS all have different needs.
>>3576 K, it is a sci-fi game where you fight aliens, there are 6 weapons, it is meant to control like doom or marathon or something and have sprite artwork, several enemies, big towering beasts that'll either charge you or mount gun turrets, alien bugs with guns, an oversized spider with a continueous laser rifle and the ability to mount passengers, an alien in a pressure suit that explodes when killed (occaisionally exploited, or wears heavy armor, the less armored guys attack from a distance and spread apart, also man weapons, feeble aliens w/ energy shields and exoskeletons, used as skirmishers, and big psionic aliens with cool abilities. your weapons in the order you get them are: an oversized taser with a scope and a charge up function, the normal shots do no damage but will garuntee a stun, and if enough of the land at once, they will blow up an enemy ignoring armor, charging it up will release an arc of electricty; a five shot pistol, accurate, dual-wieldable, it's the magnum from half-life; a plasma flame thrower with a secondary ability to charge up a little ball that acts like a grenade and leaves behind a fire; an assault rifle with an underslung shot gun; a shotgun minigun that winds up before firing and has an underslung rocket launcher, a four round missile launcher that needs to manually lock onto targets, will fire as many rockets as there are locked targets. please criticise and explain how one would theoretically make a good game out of this
>>3393 the gunplay is one of the most important https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8geGHbWIMXA
>>3423 I made a large autistic post about this in the Halo thread: >>3585 But if there's one single piece of advice I can emphasize, it's that the game should have an automap function, so levels can be fearlessly designed with complexity and freedom justifying that. >>3426 Unless, of course, the player journeys to some kind of gimmicky madness, like the descent into hell in Doom, or inside the protag's nightmares in Marathon Infinity. Even then, somewhere more "normal" to compare it with is helpful in accentuating the weirdness of weird levels. >>3579 Your design's varied weapons and foes seem like the best area to add depth to its combat would be special interactions between enemies/weapons, and different damage types. Have some enemies be bullet resistant, fireproof/flammable, electrically insulated/vulnerable, etc. Have different "phases"/"modes" for tougher enemies to encourage weapon combos, like electrocuting an enemy to disable their shields, or using bullets to crack heavy sealed armor then ignite their ammo with flames, or the old standby of regenerating enemies that need to be hit with high explosives to be permakilled. Maybe add group dynamics so some enemies could blow out fires or supercharge each other. And maybe environmental features, so electricity would be more effective against foes in water, flame would ignite some scenery, etc.
>>3717 the idea behind the taser was that it would ignore armor and auto stun, unless you charged it, then it's subject to the same rules as anything else, each shot would do 10 (adjust later) "damage" which doesn't mean anything, a stunned enemy isn't anymore easier to kill than others, but if say, you shot an enemy with 100 health 10 time with the taser in quick succesion, they would explode. Your ideas on the more interactions are interesting and I will write some shit down, I had a feeling shields would stop tasers, maybe the taser and flamer (energy weapons) strip that shit down pretty quick like in halo. your comment on igniting ammo and enemies is a good idea, maybe armored grunts need to have their armor breached to prompt the use of a flamer on them, making big booms, I'd always envisioned them as slow shock troops that would march at you with flamers and plasma cannons and have no regard for personal space, so that would be a good counter. Regnerating enemies doesn't gel with the setting, but maybe it would be good to hear other ways explosives could distinguish themselves aside from splash damage. srsly, thanks man, those are good ideas I hadn't thought of

I remember playing this as a kid, and thought the lore and ambience was just fucking lush. Also helped I live next to one of the cultures that heavily inspired it's aesthetic. I feel the first one would make a good movie, but know it'd get botched. So perhaps it's best left as a dream. Ki ora.

Can we have a The Witcher thread? My favorite game series possibly ever. I know 3 made the series very popular which caused a lot of /v/ backlash, but I nonetheless love the whole universe and story, all the books and games.

>>2274 Why does The Chaddest of Chads hate portals?
>>2524 Likely answer: it is cold and make the stomach dizzy. Schizo answer: they are matter relocators, so when you step through you get dissolved and recreated elsewhere, meaning your actual consciousness gets killed, and it is your copy that moves on. >>2523 That's interesting. The Nilfgaard camp did feel kind of unused I guess. Weird that they would cut such a large chunk of quests. Did they have to fulfill an undelayable preorder date?
it sucks, missions are all boring as shit, just can't bring myself to finsih the game
>>2525 >your actual consciousness gets killed, and it is your copy that moves on. But this is clearly a universe where souls exist so it wouldn't work that way.

Hunt Showdown anyone? >mfw pulled back from the brink of party wipe after fighting several parties killed the second boss with one remaining partner and the game disconnects. This game is against me. One time I win by tooth and nail the servers shit themselves.
>>3627 >implying most of it isnt just falseflagging /pol/tards
>>3628 it work on linux via proton
I play CSGO and Valorant. I'm MG in CSGO and Gold in Valorant. >>3613 Yes. You can't play competitive team games for shit without it.
I'm not extroverted and competitive enough to play multiplayer. I would just lose so others could win.

What did you think of this game? Are the other worth it? What analysis can we make out of it? I just beat it because I forgot I had it and it was great
1 post omitted.
>>3597 Gameplay isn't that incredible, in the end it's still just a RPG Maker game, but the way it's used is interesting. In Painful you don't have any good or bad choices, the game will just try to be cruel with you (by removing your arm thus decreasting you attack permanently for example, in the scenario you have the choice between this and killing your ally). I didn't find it as hard as people claim it to be though, the endgame is surprisingly easy (again I think it was intentional).

I didn't really like or understand why Buddy hated Brad and what was her goal.
>>3600 Nice! Seeing Brad with an apple made me smile. >>3631 She was never allowed to call him dad or seeing him as such growing up, he did drugs in front of her and forced her to kill people at a young age. She never got to discover the world or get in touch with others. Once she was kidnapped she realized how fucked up her situation was (in absolute, it's not more fucked up than any other options she has imo). I guess her goal was to get away from him and finding her own identity as soon as she knew this was possible. She probably doesn't have a lot of empathy as a (abused) child and even if she says she understood Brad's trauma, that's false. He never told her about Lisa. Her character isn't that great or even likeable, but it's not a typical brat either. I don't get what are Austin's views of his female characters though, as he said that Lisa was the one behind all the mess in Painful.

Just listened to a bunch of old Sonic soundtracks and felt pretty nostalgic. Thought we could have a thread to sperg out about nostalgia. What old games from your childhood do you feel nostalgic about? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQhYFNqp4nE&t https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZXGzki_qww

Playing through Metroid Prime Trilogy, currently on 2. https://youtu.be/4YRLIgWnHlo?t=17 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuPJm2XQT0A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwjcq8Vwt24 KB+M support for console exclusive shootan games is a godsend.
>>3589 And totally unnecessary in a game like Metroid Prime.
>>3591 >And totally unnecessary So is KB+M on Goldeneye and Perfect Dark and everyone can agree it makes the games more fun.
>>3605 No, I'm afraid I can't. The games simply weren't designed for it.

What is the longest game you've ever beaten in a single sitting? Do you notice any characteristics about that game that made it compelling enough to play for so long without break?
9 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>3011 I don't remember Chrono Trigger being short enough for one sitting.
>>3494 It's not padded so you don't notice all the hours
civilization 5 over 9 hours w/ mods, it was fun as there was always something i was planning or looking towards - eg. "if i research this and that, i can get that wonder" or "i can sense a war coming soon, i should mobilize my army and economy, maybe try and get that technology so i can get an edge in combat" as well as constantly having to balance resources and manage my luxury resources + trading with other nations
>>2987 kind of sad really but my most cherished family memory is going through mgs2 in one session with my brothers back in the day.
>>2987 Frostpunk in 8 hours or so. It's basically a cinematic citybuilder. I basically lose all control when it comes to autistic building games like C:SL or Transport Fever 2. The addition of a melodrama to vindicate my autism is completely irresistable.

>>3524 VR has activities which fit the bill, yes.
>>3525 My friends and I can toss around a bag of shit and call that a game too, but that doesn't make the bag of shit itself a game.
>>3526 The activity of tossing it is a game. Projectile can be anything. VR is more analogous to the real world and its laws of physics that allow you to play.
