Okay, here is a good topic for discussion. Maybe UBI will look at this and think, Hey this is what the Gamers want.
My gift to you, a thread to talk about what you want in a game, and what you get out of a game. What you would like to see, hear and feel in a game.
This is your chance people to be heard. Just make sure you keep it clean otherwise I'll delete your thread. Here is the main question for this think tank:

What do you think is the Recipe For Success in makeing a Video Game.

well lets set parameters here.

is this in general? because different genre's would require different "ingredients" to make it successful.

and yes, i know some can even over lap. but still some things that are crucial for a certain game in a certain genre may not be in another game in a different genre.

We will let them name the parameters in which game they are talking about. I see what you are saying and I'm glad you added that.

You could pick gender and weapons. Gender would determan what some of the weapons could or could not be.
Open range - more than one path like Unreal. You work to one point but there are a lot of open spaces and ways to get there.
Parts pur stealth. NO kills no KO. No one knows your there. And no Lambert "For God's sake what are you doing -- Games over" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Added that for laughs.
Some puzzel skills to find a way to do things.
Would like to see something that when you choose a path, direction or what ever you want to call it - that you are locked into that choice and you will follow it to the end and can't force the ending you would prefer like the Daus Ex games.
Long game but has to keep you coming back because it is -- you get the picture -- awsome.

Really, the only thing I can think of is a realistic MMOFPS set in modern war. It would be awesome if they did it right.

It would have to be set up for very little lag. Planetside has only a little lag, but if they could make it to have even less then that it would be awesome.

You could start out as a Private in any branch you wanted. Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, of any of (insert number here) countries involved. Then you could advance through the ranks, and if you are good enough, either join special task forces like Delta Force, Navy Seals, Army Rangers, etc.

Also, there should be Special Ops groups (AKA splinter cell types) for sabotage/intelligence. The intelligence provided by these people would be fed up to the Generals, etc. If you get enough of whatever point system the game uses, you can choose to advance your character to a General. As a General, you would be allowed to set up where battles take place, what units are involved, etc.

The thing is, this game would be set up either on a continent or a globe. There would be a huge map and the generals would be able to distribute their forces wherever they want. So basically, this game would require good strategic thinking for the general types, as well as good skill players to handle the FPS, vehicles, and all the other good stuff.

It would have to be very realistic. Kind of similar to the training in Americas Army. If you want to qualify for something, you have to pass classes for it. For instance, if you want to be a paratrooper and drop in behind enemy lines, then you would have to go to school for it. Want to be a sniper? Better be a crack shot and pass the courses to qualify.

Does anyone else here like how it is sounding? I could think of a thousand other things to add to make it even better. But I think it would be awesome if a company decided to make a game like this.

If you max out the graphics in Fay Cry you get birds, butterflies, fish and so on. But you need a freakin big really big system to play smooth.
OH yes music good music like MOHAA and Deus Ex.

The way I see it(crazy, insane way)...Is that Sam could get a knife, and start yelling...Then he would hack into his OPSAT and make it play AC/DC music, He would sit there and be playing the air-guitar! I mean AC/DC will make you want to play the air-Guitar! Isnt that c00l? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

the most important for any game IMHO is multiple paths....splinter cell was horribly claustaphobic,deus ex became a classic because you could choose from several paths,wether you play stealth,action,RPG open gameplay is the number 1 priority.........

One thing i've not seen is a lefty character. I would like to see that in a game. Or, prehaps, choose if your character is a lefty or righty. I'm left handed, but i don't use southpaw, so reversing the animations would be sweet.

I think the main thing is to not let it get to your head that if the game has great sound and graphics, that's gonna make it a perfect 10 game. Of course it's more appealing to watch when graphics are almost life like, but if there isn't good gameplay to go along with it, there's no point in even buying the game. For me, good gameplay is a style of play that holds your interest for longer than the first level, and has elements for great replayability once you've completed it. I have owned quite a few games that I played thru one time, but never had the desire to put it in the console again. (this is going back to the late 80's when the first Nintendo was the best gaming console ever http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif )
