    I can't remember which game, but I've seen at least one trailer promising some kind of "enemies remember you" system. It was clearly not a nemesis system though, I think they were just trying to talk up their game.

    At this point I'd expect a game to add a shitty version of a nemesis system. But any game that does it right will need time to do it right.

    Isn't that what happens normally when you kill people?

    I know it certainly keeps happening every time I win a board game.

    Yeah, games have had shitty versions of the nemesis system or 'people remember your actions' type stuff, but since almost the entire basis of Mordor was based around the 'the enemy remembers you and gains traits based on how your fought them' we haven't seen the Nemesis system integrated at all. it's a pretty specific system.

    If only it can be integrated in a game where you don't murder your opponent when you defeat them. Like Pokemon. Or Yu-Gi-Oh.

    highlander has some really poorly choreographed fight scenes, but that's kind of part of the charm?

    Awright, I'll be that guy: I think the fight scenes are actually reasonably well choreographed; they're just pretty poorly shot. On one hand, you have Bob Anderson, who did the fight choreography for Highlander and Barry Lyndon and The Princess Bride and Star Wars and Lord of the Rings and ... you get the idea.

    On the other hand, Highlander was directed by Russell Mulcahey, who did ... The Shadow, with Alec Baldwin, and Resident Evil: Extinction.

    One of these guys is much better at his job than the other.

    Metal Gear Solid 7, the sequel to Metal Gear Solid V, should have the nemesis system

    It should also be present in Metal Gear Rising 2: Revengeance, since cyborgs never really die anyway

    The thing about the 90's is that all of their action movies were not that good until the Matrix came along and gave everyone a swift kick in the pants.

    I will give you Princess Bride, Roger Rabbit, Airplane, and ET, as I was going off the dome. That brings it to a tie. The rest I am either ambivalent, indifferent, or actively loathe.

    With those four concessions, it is a tie. One year, versus an entire decade, and it is a tie.

    The 80s were a shitheap in which the occasional daisy took root

    Man if I throw 1996 into the mix, the argument becomes even more lopsided

    One 1990s-year versus all of the 1980s is at least a close, debatable fight. Two 1990s-years versus the 1980s and it becomes Golden State Warriors versus whoever.
