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?

I made a large autistic post about this in the Halo thread: >>3331
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.

>>3181
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.

>>3326
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.

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 think that's too general. I have my own likes and dislikes which may not be everyone's.

Things I hate:
>Bullet sponginess
If I shoot you in the head with any caliber and you don't die it kind of breaks my immersion.
>No way to aim accurately
Makes a weapon ridiculous when you can't get a reasonable grouping from across a small room

conversely
>Weapons too accurate, no bullet drop(hitcheck)
Half Life 2 The magnum is just a hitcheck from any distance with pixel accuracy. It's ridiculous.

I also probably would lean towards limiting healing to make it harder, but you probably wouldn't want to go for full realism when it comes to gunshot wounds. Can you imagine a game where you get shot in the spine and you're just permanently crippled. I can't think of any besides ARMA.

I know a game named DEUS where you can lose all your limbs and eyes (which actually change the gameplay,and can't be replaced)
you can also suffer from basic illness etc,it's at a point where it's unplayable and just a meme DOS game,especially since it's hard by itself,but you have to deal with survival elements on top of it. (you can have hiccups and even funnier,the screen where you see your stats is a real ingame element that you have to get batteries to power it up or else you can't see them)

>>3148
If this is only single player, then:
>give up since single player shooters are naturally boring since with any skill you master the game in seconds.

Multiplayer:
>Punish slow game play styles
>no snipers unless the game has double jumping and/or dashing
>allow deep customization (guns having variants with inherent stat changes + attachments that change the gun radically)
>give players challenges that are rewarding to do (I don't mean "Do 5 headshot get camo" I'm talking a challenge where all damage you output is half but the exchange is you're worth two men in objective game modes).
>Server Browser, etc.
I can go on, but I won't because I'm gay.

Also lemme share this article about real yakuza playing Yakuza 3, in case you haven't read it:
https://boingboing.net/2010/08/10/yakuza-3-review.html

Some of my favorite bits:
>S: You got your salaryman in there, the delinquent school girl and her sugar daddy, Chinese people, and even those Nigerian touts. What's with all the fucking gaijin (foreigners) in the area anyway? It used to be just Japanese, Koreans and Chinese.
>M: Don't say gaijin. Say Gaikokujin. It's more polite. Jake's a gaijin.
>S: Yeah, I forget sometimes. What's with all the fucking gaikokujin in Kabukicho anyway?

>M: I like the fact that you power up by eating real food. Shio ramen gives you a lot of power — CC Lemon, not as much. It all makes sense.

>S: The breaded pork cutlet bento box is like mega power. More than ramen. That's accurate.
>K: If they had shabu (crystal meth) as a power-up item, that would be realistic. It's a yakuza game.

>S: I don't know any ex-yakuza running orphanages.

Never played, but have watched some youtube gameplay clips. According to Yakuza, all you have to do to sleep with a thicc, booba-tier girl is share drinks and talk with her at a bar? And maybe win a bar fight?

Play Yakuza 0, or Yakuza Kiwami 1. You'll get to be a coomer inside the game.

That depends what your definition of art is. A game with a good, sophisticated story that has elements of tragedy or comedy can be considered art. The gameplay itself is just competition, a sport like chess played between you and another player or an AI.

So… anyone managed to solve this? Let's treat this as the final bump. Would be a cool achievment for /games/ if we managed to solve this game. Worst case scenario, is it possible to acquire the game files of Hidden Agenda it self, and if so, can one crack them open to find the cout commands that output the ending text? In that case we could see what the "golden" ending would be if it didn't softlock.

I just started playing the original Deus Ex after watching Sseth's video on it recently, and I'm hooked. I played the new games a couple years which were also great, they introduced me to Cyberpunk. Thoughts on the series?

>>2480>They have loose threads that won't be resolved until the sequel/followup, so why do you treat Mankind Divided differently?I don't like Witcher 2, but one problem it didn't have was this one. The story within the game was done well enough that ending it on a cliffhanger didn't bother anyone. Mankind Divided dropped the ball, and very clearly for trying to squeeze as much as they could out of fans. I've only played through it twice, and in one "session" so maybe i'll lighten up on it if I ever replay it, but I don't feel an urge to. Whereas with every other game in the series I have gone back to multiple times. It wasn't awful, I had fun playing it, it just wasn't at the level of the rest of them.

Does Deus Ex (2000) actually hold up? Not really speaking from a gameplay perspective which I don't care about, but more story and dialogue-wise.
From what I can gather the whole story is basically a hackeyed collection of le ebin X-files tier conspiracy theories except they're TRUE :O but maybe there's more to it and it's actually worth playing. Got to Chinatown last time I played the game and I don't remember being terribly impressed, but maybe I should give it another go?

> le ebin X-files tier conspiracy theories
&ltImplying this is a bad thing
X Files is the greatest show ever made, and its conspiracies are great - and frequently anti-US government.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBSd9GIzNxs

Anyway, the story in Deus Ex is just a fun conspiracy romp. What makes it stand out is its themes. Whilst the major theme of the game is about the role of technology (e.g. as a replacement for God) it explores many more.
It's different to the later games in that it covers a very large number of themes, whilst the newer games cover a smaller number in greater depth.
There's no game like the original (and the series) so well worth playing.

>melee weapons(aim for the back
Works half of the time. HAving to save/reload every time I wanted to whack someone with a baton is why I dropped this early. Also, sleeper crossbow is completely useless because enemies stay awake for a good ten seconds during which they'll warn everyone.

I've been trying to complete this game since it released and I can rarely bring myself to play it, and when it I do it's rarely for more than a half hour. The humor is just so fucking grating. Nothing is ever taken seriously. Futurama and Rick & Morty are an enjoyable format for &lt30min segments. Not for hours of open world gameplay wherein every character is the butt of some joke.

I really want to enjoy it, I also really want to finish the main story, but I just want the jokes to fucking stop.

I think this is a big problem with modern writing, the constant dumb jokes and nothing ever being taken seriously. There's moments for humour and moments for seriousness but these people can never take it seriously. I mean soldiers like to have fun and goof off and shit when they're just waiting around but when they're in actual combat? No, they get serious and cold-blooded and shit.

General for 4X games, but also an opportunity to introduce you all to a new game called Shadow Empire.

The game has an incredibly deep planet generation system that affects gameplay massively, including rotation of the planet (lol), makeup of the atmosphere, terrain, mineral deposits and alien life. It also has a logistics system to make you supply your units with food and ammunition, if they run out of supply they'll be very weak so you need to keep expanding the supply lines to the front and also making sure the enemy cannot cut you off. Obviously being encircled is very bad news for your troops.

You start as a minor "Regime" and your goal is to conquer the planet after the previous galaxy wide regime collapsed sending most of it into civil war and apocalypse. Each regime can be run differently and has different perks based on decisions you make throughout the game. For example if people start striking you can send in the army to deal with them (autocracy) or just pay them off (democracy), alternatively you can avoid the situation entirely by administrating the zones well, but that may lead to other troubles like a lack of credits for purchasing resources. You can run a mix of different systems so your decisions aren't set in stone for you but there are bonuses to always picking a certain method like unique units and stratagems, which are like ideological playing cards.
