After traversing slums and museums, graveyards and forests in Naughty Dog’s acclaimed survival horror game The Last Of Us, you come to a large metal grate set in a stony hillside, the water cascading from its lip pooling at your feet.
La Noire ending. Death by sewer.
W TEE EFF!!!? Was about to play it soon. What hell is this. First comment and a spoiler. You s.u.c.k
All adventure games must have sewer levels in order to commemorate Mario.
All FPS must have a giant robotic Hitler to commemorate Wolfenstein 3D
because sewers and tunnels are enclosed spaces that are easy to decorate and render while maintaining a high performance. Its a trick done to make a games graphics seem more impressive than they actually are. games like deep down can only possibly achieve that level of texture quality, framerate, resolution, and particle effect quality by keeping the entire game holed up in a tiny little dungeon
We've only seen, what, one level/section of Deep Down? You can ascertain that the rest of the entire game is like that? How does that work?
Would it be called Deep Down otherwise, barring the obvious double-meaning from its plot?
'One level'. You do realize Deep down is procedurally generated right? Don't expect to see anything too different from what you've seen already. Different layouts are all that comes with PG. Elder scrolls Oblivions dungeons are a perfect example It's been confirmed that Deep down is a dungeon crawler btw. Would like to site Metro 2033 for this anyway too, another example of the super linear graphics. Linearity complements graphics. Enclosed spaces complement them even more. The tighter the game's focus is the easier it is to make spend resources on those smaller areas
I've often wondered this. It's a bit of a pet peeve of mine.
I love the cut scene when you exit the sewer in the Last of Us. So funny ^^
its like Walt jr and his breakfast
because its easy to design. dark souls was like playing in a sewer for the whole game.
Because it's a mysterious place you never see.
Probably because you could design this huge sewer system and normal people (sorry, people who don't regularly go into the sewers) would be like "yeah, that's what a sewer looks like, right?" Plus all the other reasons that people listed.
