In the last few days, I’ve had occasion to catch up on a lot of games. Given that I haven’t posted too much over the last few days (been busy playing instead!) I figured I might as well share my favorites off of the list so that you can go out and seek out these play experiences yourself, and think about how MMOs might develop with more attention to features other than the leveling…
- There should be boss encounters as thrilling as those in Shadow of the Colossus in all the MMOs.
- The care that goes into crafting an atmosphere that is evident in F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon ought to be in all our MMO areas.
- Why can’t an MMO pet system be as nice as Nintendogs?
- Our environments could learn a lot from games like Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones — at one point my daughter shouted out, “Now that’s a Jackie Chan moment!” when I ran off a wall, jumped off a springy shutter, caught onto a overhanging plank, clambered on, then dove into the gap between two buildings, lodged myself within, flipped around, and dropped down onto an unsuspecting soldier.
- Why can’t the music systems in MMOs be as good as Guitar Hero? Well, OK, because of lag.
