What would a game need to do to get a 100/100?

Oh. I beat it in less...

Well, THQ-era puzzle platformers are outdated. Portal is very, VERY different from that. Also, it's only 2 hours long. Typical puzzle-adventures have to be at least 15 hours minimum, preferably 30.

See, I don't think his work looks modern at all. It holds up because it's a great painting in a classical style (or, was pioneering of the time, built off of paintings of the era), but there is nothing about his work that can be described as "modern." And that makes sense considering it's 500 years

I agree with this. If one is judging old art by modern standards, then there is a good chance that one just doesn't really genuinely appreciate art all that much.

Caravaggio's work is surprisingly modern considering it's 500 years old. Many newer paintings actually feel much older. We can still

And even then, people say they don't like it when games are too long :|

It's like, you can never win. Different strokes for different folks.

So, I think the story behind StarFox is a fascinating one. 3D graphics cards weren't even produced by major companies. NVIDIA became a company in the same year Star Fox launched. ATi wouldn't release 3D processors for another 2 years. The guys who made Star Fox didn't even work at Nintendo, they wer

At a certain point and time Pong, Space Invaders, Pac Man (supplanted by Ms. Pac Man), and Tetris were all 100s. Like, what game could possibly run smoother or play better than Pac Man? No, a Katana will never be a 100/100 because its usefulness has been largely supplanted by other weapons. Drones,

OK, I have a functioning test map! Some things to note:

  • Stamina meter not functional yet (the swirling icon above Jake's head)!

    I don't think it's possible for a game to be absolutely "perfect." Over time, the trends that great games begin wane out after overuse, so even if a game launches and seems perfect, it turns out it's really not. Goldeneye: 007, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and yeah, even Metroid Prime and H

    I'll try to export an EXE that doesn't contain the entire game. At this point, there's a lot of extra content that doesn't need to be there.

    BTW, it will support gamepads for sure. But I'm currently testing everything with a mouse. You have better control over the camera with a mouse.

    I do have some programmed physics that make you feel like your moving faster the longer you keep your momentum going. The slope-based walking interpolates your current speed with your new slope, and if you continue running/jumping/whatever on a flat or declining surface it will continue to increase

    Can games be objectively good/great?

    Here is one constant: games are played by humans, usually those who have brains, ears, and eyeballs.

    Using that as the backdrop, your game should, ideally, communicate SOMETHING to the player. If your game fails to communicate, then you can trace back and figure out what was designed poorly.

    So, you can objectify communication in design, but there are many ways a game can be good or not. The things you can objectify are all the things that can go wrong as a result of poor communication, bugs, glitches, etc: people don't understand a mechanic because it wasn't well explained. People can'

    My favorite game of the 90s was Super Mario 64. It truly felt like a game where you could do anything, and the controls had everything to do with it. You could sideways-jump into a wall jump and reach high cliffs in no time at all! You could double jump, triple jump, backwards and even long jump, an

    Dastically changing a game

    Unsure what you mean by a greater sense of respect for the game? Do you mean the way people percieved it in those early days?

    It was a smaller, tighter experience, so it was much more intimate. Nowadays the maps are way larger, and you can play matches without engaging in much battles. Or, conv
