View Full Version : Why?

09-10-2002, 05:07 PM
Why is everybody so sick of 3D? I understand that 2D games have a better feel, but like it or not, the future is now.

Hmm. I'm kinda on your side with this one. I think that Grim Fandango is the best game ever made, very closely followed by Monkey Island 2 and Little Big Adventure 2. As you know, Grim Fandango was in 3d. I mean, I liked EMI (as a game! not as a sequel. What a difference there is) and I would rather play games in 3d than have them stop making adventure games altogether. I love the genre, not the GUI.
Read this lucasarticle (http://lucastones.mixnmojo.com/2.html) I wrote about this subject. You may find it interesting. I dunno. :D

I don't mind 3d. I do mind that long sig though.

Yeah I adore Grim Fandango too and if it wasnt for that I would probably be a total anti-3d crusader.

For the most part I dislike 3d because it can often look quite bad and make for a clunky interface. Of course this isnt always the case (as Grim proves) and I think that new technologies - such as cel shading could make all the difference.

I'd like a 3D adventure with a 2d like interface. Keyboard control doesn't feel right for adventures. On the bright side as computer graphics get better and better the atmosphere achieved in 3d adventures will hopefully approach and exceed that achieved in traditional 2d adventures.

Before we know it, we'll have virtual reality adventure games! But really, I don't really mind 3D that much, Yeah it's not as good as 2D but we have really got to stop looking in the past and start looking towards the future!

VR is really the only place left to go.

What about computers that plug straight into your brain?

That movie was stupid. On the box they said it was better than the Matrix

Well here you go. I changed back into my old sig.

Anyway, back on topic.

Personally, I believe 3D is the new 2D.

Have you seen the film Strange Days? I so wish that was real.. ooh the possibilities ;) :rolleyes: :D

A VR adventure game would be great! But if they really did do true VR games, where you have a mask and like some kind of play arena, then I have to say something like GTA3 would tickle my fancy just that bit more.

Ar you guys talking about Existenz? that movie is totally cool.

I wish I had a gun made out of weird fish.

Uhm... Has anyone except me noticed how much the matrix has started sucking? I liked it the first couple of times I saw it but when I watched now the other day I realized that everything except the action is crap. Worst of all is the dialogue. EET EEZ SHEET! I guess I was stunned by the cool visuals when it was new.

I hated the Matrix the first time.

09-12-2002, 03:49 PM
I rented the movie Existenz or whatever either when the matrix was in theaters or after. It had some critic that said it was better than the matrix. I don't know where you live and how the distributing of the movies went but here in the US thats how it went down. :)

09-12-2002, 03:55 PM
I was never really overly impressed by the Matrix. It's one of those movies that geek types love to hype up, because chimps can't understand it. I'd rather watch Home Alone, it's much classier. Funnier too.

09-12-2002, 04:03 PM
Any John Hughes movie will make me laugh. They're all basically the same, but they kill me. The Matrix was slow and boring.

09-12-2002, 04:43 PM
what about the new matrix film, what do you think thats going to be like? same as before?

09-12-2002, 05:33 PM
How about a VR RPG, that might be fun!

09-12-2002, 07:57 PM
I still enjoy the Matrix every time I see it. I love the gradual transformation of Keanu from regular guy to godlike superhero. It's both a physical transformation, and a character transformation. It's one of the best character arcs I've seen in an action movie.

Existenz was okay, but I found the end annoying, when all it was was plot twist after plot twist after plot twist, seemingly just to run out the clock.

A VR RPG would also kick ass, you are correct.

09-13-2002, 06:31 AM
I liked the 2d adventure but as said the genre has to evolve if it wants to compete with other new 3d games coming out. The only way is upů unless this kills off the genre all together?
