An Example Of Bad Game Design | Rise Of The Tomb Raider

There are a lot of terrible video games out there that have bad game design within the core elements of its game mechanics. It's even worse when a triple A game has terrible game design, because it completely draws the player out of a beautiful game experience. A prime example of bad game design is Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Holy shit, this guy has an annoying voice :/

More like an example of bad reviewing for clicks. RotTR is a great game on all 3 platforms.

Gaming4Life19812621d ago

People love to hate rise of the tomb raider but all those who have played it know it is a great game.

LordMaim2621d ago

Actually, I haven't heard anyone hating on it. It was a great game.

pasta_spice2621d ago

Yeah and the problem he is referring to (scripted boss battles) is a problem with many modern games. So I'm not sure why he bothered to single out RotTR. It's hardly the worst offender

Looking at the cover of the video, definitely not getting a view from me.


Is 2K Games actually making FIFA 25, the next “best” entry yet?

FIFA president Gianni Infantino teases the future of FIFA games in a brand-new interview, and NBA 2K24 studio 2K Games might be behind it.

Time for a change. Football games haven't evolved much.

It’s tough when there is no competition

There’s PES and now we’ll have FC25 and FIFA so yes, but it is no longer true, shit is about to get real!

Now if we only had two viable options for Basketball and American football we’d be on to something.

PES didn't exist since 2020, and the rebranded eFootball is crap.

The barber shop and roulette wheel are going to be awesome.

It’ll be monetized to all hell, regardless

Hmmm, let’s see how they do. If they riddle it with microtransactions, hell no. Otherwise, I’m excited.

Sorry George Miller, but you’re wrong about the Mad Max game

George Miller expressed dismay toward the 2015 Mad Max game recently, but Avalanche Studios' take on the lore is still so good to this day.

Mad Max is a good game... George Miller should STFU.

Old_Scout2h ago

He didn't say it wasn't good. Maybe you should take your own advice and look past the articles misleading headline. Here's the actual quote. “wasn’t as good as we wanted it to, it wasn’t in our hands.” That is all he said about it.

I think the funny thing is if Kojima made a Mad Max game it would be so trippy and "out there" I don't think it would feel like Mad Max by the time he's done with it. This is why he's better off with original new IPs.

Kojima seems like a buzz word these film directors use because he's probably the only big name they've heard from the gaming industry.

Wretchedstain17h ago

Article is correct in my opinion, Miller is wrong. That Death Stranding II trailer is bonkers, looking forward to that in itself.

And I agree, unless Mr Kojima wants to change his tune, or laughably, be told what to do, you're right, it wouldn't be Mad Max or close.

porkChop17h ago

Yup, Kojima really doesn't suit Mad Max. Avalanche did a great job though. It looked, felt, and played like what I'd expect from a Mad Max game. I really enjoyed my time with it, and the sand storms were handled incredibly well.

jznrpg1h ago

I think Kojima could definitely make a great Mad Max game.

TheGamingHounds16h ago

I never played it but the recent buzz around Mad Max has piqued my interest. Will check it out this year for sure

MM is not a perfect game by any means as it was held back by lots of repetitious, standard open-world copy and paste missions, but the devs SO perfectly captured the world, atmosphere, lore and brutality. It also just so happens to boast one of THE best photo modes out there and some of the most impressive explosions I've ever seen in a game to date. The car combat is of course another impressive standout, both vicious and fun. MM is a game which I have revisited multiple times since its release, and now having just seen Furiosa, I can feel it calling me back again.

There's a ton to love there, but I think you'll pickup on the areas where the devs struggled likely due to reigning in the scope, budget and time constraints, leading to an incredibly fun, albeit uneven experience. Though, as mentioned, it's absolutely a game worth experiencing once, and I truly hope you enjoy it. The game really does deserve a sequel.

Word for word. Exactly this. A lot of fun to be had in there. A true Mad Max game. Sequel can’t come soon enough.
