    I thought the Skyrails in Bioshock Infinite made for some really fun arenas. And the zero-g sections of Dead Space 2 were super neat.

    All my favorite franchises are dead!

    I think they WERE, absolutely

    I always though bungie levels were a giant boring mess.

    Honestly Valve levels until Portal weren't great either.

    It's honestly more their art direction I dislike more than their level design.

    The openness and simple lines and angles work really well with their physics.

    But it all looks so boring, empty and repetitive.

    It saddens me how Jaffe fell after God of War

    He had that Calling All Cars PSN game, and it was shit

    Then he tried to revive Twisted Metal, and it didn't work

    And now this

    I wish he'd focus on something single-player and substantial because multiplayer hasn't been doing so hot for him

    But then my favorite FPS levels are from Unreal Tournament 2k* and 3

    And not the onslaught levels, really just the DM ones.

    I like them, to be honest. Very clean. Not something I would want in every game, but it worked for what Halo was going for. Of course, then 4 turned into Tron 3 and took out all the interesting ship names and made Forerunners into weird catbaboon things and man fuck Halo 4.

    We need more games that look like PS2 games. And PS1 games.

    It's the natural evolution of the current 16/32 bit indie game craze. People are going to start going "hey low poly stuff can be pretty sweet". And it all begins with Massive Chalice.

    One that that makes me want to see a Half-Life 3 is that it's been 10 years since the original (and 7 years since the last episode) so I'm pretty interested to see what Valve would even make today, on modern hardware with like a decade of FPS evolution since the HL2 formula was established (and lets be real, the episodes didn't really evolve that formula much). Because I really doubt they just make another linear shooter shooter where you go from battle to unskippable in-game cinematic to battle to setpiece.

    If they were into that, we'd probably have gotten Episode 3 by now.

    I'm okay with that, if it is well done. Isn't that basically the new Wolfenstein? That was really well received, yeah? I still need to play it.

    Well, to be fair, nobody was expecting anything out of Wolfenstein, so people were very pleasently surprised. Half-Life has the opposite problem; people are going to expect something more from it than basically a polished version of what everyone else is doing. Like I said, if Valve was interested in doing that, we'd probably have gotten Episode 3.

    EDIT: I mean, I'm sure me and 3 gazillion other fanboys would devour anything with a Half-Life logo on it, even if it was just a retitled Diakatana, but given the money and talent at Valve, I don't think that's what they're going to want to do.

    Valve will use HL3 to get people to use their next big thing. So when Valve comes out with a... I dunno? Video hosting website? Online bank? Search engine? Social network? then you need that thing to run HL3.

    I mean

    That is its express purpose

    It isn't like it is Mario 3D World 2: This Time You're the Level Designer

    Mario Maker isnt a mainline Mario Game, it's a creation tool

    Yeah it's not really the low poly models that can make older 3D games look bad but the low res textures stretched over everything. That and the low resolution.

    Low poly models at a high resolution with good textures, as shown above, can look beautiful.

    Think about how good Splatoon looked already

    And now remember that those level designers are making a full campaign with that weird-ass Squid/Paint traveling as a core mechanic

    Hey just while we're talking about games

    http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/7/7349715/ralph-baer-father-of-video-games-dies-at-92
    The man largely credited as "the father of video games" has died at age 92, according to a report from Gamasutra. Ralph Baer, a German immigrant and inventor, created the very first home video game console in the late ‘60s. It was simply called the "Brown Box," and it later came to be known as the Magnavox Odyssey in 1972 after he licensed out the design.

    The device set the footprint for home consoles to this date: a computer in a box that was manipulated with controllers and connected to a television. He also developed a "light gun" controller that was bundled with a shooting game. It is widely believed to be the first-ever video game peripheral. Later, he designed the Simon pattern-matching electronic toy that's still available today.

    It looks like a fun multiplayer-focused game that I feel is going to be ignored by almost every single person with a Wii U.

    A good friend of mine's grandfather designed the controller for the Odyssey! He has the patent in his desk at work.

    They represent a mild inconvenience at worst.

    It's a total bummer to hear about Ralph Baer. That guy never got enough credit for creating an entire entertainment medium.

    On a better note here's some more awesome low poly art:
