is house really here?
I found the character of house so lame compared to the real character of the tv show and the entire series
What you guys need to change to make this game a real HOUSE MD :
- House's jokes: They are way too unfunny and harmless. House is a bastard who makes jokes of everything like religion, color skin, nacionality, job, etc. Add a filter to adults or something and change the dialog's so the adults can see it only and actually laugh like in the real tv show.
-House's prank and behavior: Another thing of house is the infinite amount of pranks he do on the hospital, if you guys are going to recreate the hospital, do it with the pranks too. Ex: one day i log in and house made a prank and the mri is broken and maybe i need to spend some money or other thing to fix it. I'm ok with spend on fixing the hospital while house make's pranks everywhere but ONLY if there's an animation or something just like in the tv show.
Im serious about this, if you guys can't do this then you can change the name on every character and the game itself and you will have a normal game unrelated to any tv show.
Because let's be honest, the only related thing to the show are the names.
You do realize that jokes, and humor in general, depend on timing? Timing is essential for House as a TV series. Since this is a text-based game (the jokes are at least) the effect of timing is lost since people have to read. It's unfortunate, but it's the only way it is and is going to be I'm afraid.
I do like your ideas on some more interaction next to the cases and normal patients.
Timing? not at all
Is all about context and good jokes, thats all. House made jokes on everything and not caring about his language, and if he do care, he do it with sarcasm
If you have read any manga or comic you will find text-based and no movement at all and even do you'll find awesome histories, great dialog and funny moments on them.
If you take a episode of house and put it on this game, you will notice right away how great the writers were on the show and how poor are the ones on this game.
Please, nothing else that will make me have to spend large amounts of money! The budget is SO hard to accrue in reasonable amounts!
I dunno, a LOT of jokes are also about tone of voice, something which never works in text form.
We see your point -- text is often difficult to translate into jokes/emotions. Although we're always in there trying to improve the game!
