BeefJack: "Why bother having characters with stories and backgrounds and dimensions? You can just fill the cast with animals! Here’s the top five animals games need to utilise more often in any capacity."
I would like a sequel to Silicon Valley, which was on N64. You controlled a microchip that looked and moved like a bug. You would jump into different robotic animals and control them to navigate in this unique open platform world. I would love to see a next gen version where you could utilize 100s of animals to solve puzzles and such. the animals are cartoony and a bit silly looking. I would like to see the same style of goofyness like that. Not photorealistic. Just an interesting concept back in the day, that I'd like to see rebooted.
I am using up my bubz on this one but here are some gameplay footage. It's called SpaceStation: Silicon Valley Best example of how the gameplay is, is that is a neat mix of Mario 64 and Kirby. Each animal has silly powers. I love this game. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I absolutely loved the bear attack in Condemned 2. More games need bears. I also like the zoo in Resident Evil Outbreak (file #2?). Animals can make just as terrifying enemies as any monster.
A little something to think about regarding bears: In this example five wolves have just brought down a nice big deer. They're thinking "sweet... dinner." A mile and a half away, a bear has caught a whiff of a fresh kill. He stands up and sniffs. A short time later he shows up at the wolves' little dinner party, chases all the wolves off and eats the dear himself. Bears are just bullies, they're no more predators than raccoons. I'd suggest elephants, but they can't jump. Cats FTW. Maybe replace the bear with the spider, one of the hunters, like the tarantula. Or a bird, a raptor like the hawk or falcon.
Finally a top 5 list I can enjoy.
Pigs were evil once in a Playstation One game called TOMBA. It was a pretty fun RPG/Platformer.
