    Ah yes, I remember when cel shading was the hot new fad in games, to varying degrees of success. Thankfully developers have gotten better at using it, some of those early games look rough today.

    Comic title had me chuckling and the comic itself delivered as well.

    The BR game for Battle Royale games kind of already exists. It's called late-stage free market capitalism. :P

    Which BR game(s) can grab the most player attention/time/money and then try to monopolise on that.

    I'm not sure what's been more prevalent this year at E3, battle royale games or crapsack post apocalyptic open world games.

    Yup. It really makes you think America has some kind of shared mass cultural death-wish, after 2016, there are that many with that particular setting/theme.
    Evangelical-types have always had that rapture-boner thing going on though (Cyanide and Happiness is even making a title mocking both this & BR games). :lol:

    It wasn't that long ago in a Steam thread we had to explain to some posters that BR games weren't like DayZ or Rust. Now we're doing the converse as Fallout 76 puts more of a spotlight on gaming trends some are having trouble keeping straight/up with. And with it is a dreadful sense of deja vu of times explaining to parents that not all video game consoles are "Nintendos" and the creeping realization that a number of us are now becoming our own parents.

    BR isn't oversaturated until we get a Madden BR 2019 or FIFA BR.

    A tournament circuit where you face off with various opponents until only one team is left isn't all that different from a battle royale in the first place.

    It's extremely different. Unless we're talking a pro wrestling game or eight-player Smash, there's aspects that are lost in a tournament format and even in those exceptions you're limited to eight characters who are guaranteed to be back at full health at the end of the fight. It wouldn't be a battle royale so much as a tournament of mini-battle royales.

    There's a reason that the book's prologue is a wrestling fan explaining the concept of a pro wrestling battle royale to a friend.

    After watching PA streaming Realm Royale, it's nice to see them actually bringing some real innovation to the gameplay (even if it just looks like Fortnite reskinned).

    Now I want to see a BR game that is more "primitive". I want to see one where there's hardly any healing (beyond really just staunching your wounds and preventing dehydration/starvation), and you use very basic weapons like knives, spears and bows. Possibly crafted.

    I have no idea if such a thing could actually work as a game, though. But it'd definitely be a different take than the existing BRs.

    (And I've already written that I would love to see a Running Man type game - either true to the book, the movie or a hybrid of both.)

    This year's E3 really feels like "'Member zombies? I 'member" and "Medieval Japan? We've got LOTS of Medieval Japan" on top of this (Battle Royale and Post-apoc survival games).

    I'm the opposite. Lets go less primitive. Waaaay less primitive.
    A trillion AIs housed in ships the size of planets are dropped into the galactic core. Harnessing weapons powered by supermassive black holes, they must eliminate each other before the arena disappears due to the heat death of the universe.

    Battle Royale, except instead of it being 100 players till the last survives, it's the Death Gates. As you succeed, you can progress further through the gates, but dying resets you back to the start.

    What is this I don't even.

    Battle Royale, except instead of 100 players in, 1 player out, it's 100 players in, 1 player dies. First death and the game is over and the other 99 share the victory. It'd be a huge timesaver.

    Can someone make a Pong Battle Royale game where the field is a 20-sided polygon and each player's paddle can move along one side of the polygon and after some number of balls have gotten past you you're eliminated and then after some number of players are eliminated the field shrinks to a smaller polygon and so on until there is only one survivor?

    That sounds pretty fun actually. Like that Petri dish game on itch.io a couple years ago.
