Video Game 7 Commandments / A Gamer's Manifesto

Gamer's Manifesto:
http://www.cracked.com/article_15748...manifesto.html

The 7 Commandments All Video Games Should Obey:
http://www.cracked.com/article_16196...ould-obey.html

These are each several months old, but very interesting complementary works.

I like what they say. Read 'em and discuss.

Down with crates!

We knew a man who failed that level 37 times, then got the Infinite Health cheat for it and came back. He intentionally tripped the alarm, the guards rushed out. Laughing maniacally, he proceeded to shoot those fuckers for four hours, killing 1,183 of them - 682 with groin shots - before his thumbs cramped up. Your game should not create this kind of bitterness.

I get a laugh out of that every time I read it, mainly out of the fact that it's all true and that shit does need to change in the industry...

And the Guitar Hero/Rockband trend isn't the kind of change i'm talkin' about =/

As I aspire to make great video games, I am going to refer back to those 7 commandments.

FF/TFC skill maps would terrify these guys.

There is no possible freaking way to jump accurately from a first person perspective. All of the things that would let you do it in real life (sense of balance and momentum, awareness of your body) are gone. Also, you can't see your fucking feet.

I don't know how you can say that and still praise Portal, which is chock full of jumping puzzles.

I've always found jumping, etc. in most FPSes quite easy, actually.

It's harder when your FOV is 75 for some stupid reason.

Okay then, CS kz climbing maps. Which are/were terribly popular.

Or, how about this: Kreedz Climbing Mod

Yeah, they would be furious.

Yea, I think the assertion that you can't jump accurately in FPSs is just plain wrong, as long as your FOV isn't 75.

I'm honestly not a fan of the FPS jumping puzzles, but Portal did have them, albeit it was a bit different. It wasn't jump from this ledge to this one, it was jump down, shoot, aim shoot and fire yourself out at this angle etc. It didn't irritate me as much as having to crouch jump up stacks of wobbly boxes in HL2, that due to your inability to know where your body was resulted in you knocking shit over without being able to stand on it etc. etc.

Daikatana really specifically violates a lot of the examples they set, like escorting someone, or shooting tiny unsatisfying enemies.

But they did say in that article that they were mostly pointing out flaws in good games because there's no point in talking about bad games.
