Ten Games That Have Mind Boggling AI

GB: Most of the popular games today focus on multiplayer, with online FPS and party games soaring to the top of the charts time and time again. Whilst online play and a recent surge in the acceptability of gaming mean it’s easier than ever to find some buddies to team up with, it wasn’t always this way. Games were much more single player focused in years gone by, and the games that still retain this focus require a sound AI to truly engage the player. Here are ten games that have produced believable and engaging artificial intelligence.

No killzone series??? Some of the best Ai I have come up against.

Solid_Snake-4638d ago

think you will find F.E.A.R has the best AI.

Venoxn4g4639d ago

how about Hitman and max payne?

RememberThe3574638d ago

Is it just me or does AI generally suck. The best AI I can think of is in FEAR but even then they were pretty boneheaded.

humbleopinion4638d ago (Edited 4638d ago )

Totally agree. Even in FEAR the developers mentioned how they "cheated" and used to their advantage the fact that the game consisted of lengty linear corridors with predetermined cover spots that are hard to flank. In open arenas the FEAR AI is pretty worthless.

Most shooters offer incredibly scripted and/or spawning AI. Stealth games are even worse (thief, MGS, Splinter Cell) where the whole AI effort is focused around patrol routes and sound detection but near zero combat AI.

The only notable modern shooter with proper AI (one that can fight properly in big arenas with no hard scripting) I can think of is Halo Reach. Crysis also made some noble attempts in that area but the AI is still lacking there.

L4D and Black & White are also good mentions in that list for their unique approach. But I was expecting to also see Starcraft 2 custom user AI scripting there.

Killzone 2?
Nuff said.

Unreal? (the original one)
Introduces dodging enemies didnt it?
They were also able to trick you from time to time.

Report: Halo: Combat Evolved Remaster in Development, Being Considered for PS5

According to insider sources, a Halo Combat Evolved remaster is in development and being considered for launch on PS5.

Rynxie6d ago

So the better version will be on PS5 with VR, haptic feedback, 4k, HDR and so on? Can we ban Xbox owners from buying the PS5 version? Put a requirement to have a psn log in to play it.

andy856d ago

Tbf considering the Pro will be out you're right. Console wise anyway

BlindMango6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

Why do these news websites keep labeling RUMORS as "Report"? Why even have the word "Report" in the title at all? It's like they are faking an announcement to get more clicks

Imagine seeing that headline 2 years ago 😂😂

Looking Back At 2008, An Unbelievably Incredible Year Of Video Game Releases

Huzaifa from eXputer: "2008 was home to the likes of Call of Duty: World at War, Dead Space, GTA 4, Far Cry 2, Left 4 Dead, and many other hits, which is outright remarkable."

ChasterMies49d ago

Some of these low paid video game “news” writers weren’t born before 2007.

just_looken48d ago

Here here

Those that were around before 2000's i am sure are like me that think we entered a world of non readers or those that follow without question.

I can not wait to see fallout 3 a goty game even though it was about water with non content until you add the dlc/updates then you got the performance/crashing

CrimsonWing6949d ago

I don’t think anything can compare to 2023

lucasnooker49d ago

1998 - the best year in gaming! Metal gear solid, crash bandicoot 3, medievil, half life, ocarina of time, thief, tenchu, resident evil 2, Spyro, tomb raider 3, oddworld abes exodus, banjo kazooie.

It was a different breed of a gaming era. You’ll never understand what it was like back then. The aura of gaming, it was different!

KyRo49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

I second this. Gaming was a lot more varied and fun than it is today. I'm 35 so getting on compared to some here but I got to see all the changes from NES up to now but I've never felt so disappointed in any generation than I have this current gen. I was expecting more from this generation rather than prettier versions of games that came before it. Game mechanics have become so refined that alot of games feel the same and has done for a while now.

Maybe it's time to have a break for a while. I love gaming but I don't feel I get much fun in the traditional sense out of it anymore.

CrimsonWing6949d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, Abe’s Exodus, and Ocarina of Time are the only things from that list that I liked.

Here’s the 2023 game releases that I personally liked… and big releases that I didn’t care for:

- Dead Space Remake
- Wo Long Dynatsy
- Resident Evil 4 Remake
- Diablo 4
- Fire Emblem Engage
- Hogwarts Legcay
- Street Fighter 6
- Hi-Fi Rush
- Like a Dragon: Ishin
- Octopath Traveler 2
- Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters
- Final Fanatsy XVI (actually ended up not liking this, but it was still a big deal release)
- Baldur’s Gate 3
- Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon
- Lies of P
- Mortal Kombat 1
- Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
- Starfield (Ended up hating this one, but big release)
- Super Mario Bros. Wonder
- Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (I’m an old-school Zelda fan, but didn’t really enjoy this game)
- Alan Wake 2

I mean, honestly I’ve never seen a year of major IP releases like that, ever.

Profchaos49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Isn't it just a generational thing realistically.

I've been gaming since way back and I some of my favourite games go as far back as the late 80s for me each generation has a year or two of game changing releases one after another before an inevitable dry spell.

I kind of agree gaming had a different feel games hit different because we didn't have the internet nothing got spoiled and you really had to put in the effort to beat a puzzle which could set entire groups of people looking for a solution. But most importantly games were experimental and not as cookie cutter as today even basics like controls were not universal today r2 is shoot l2 is ads garunteed you can't deviate from that in a shooter back then it could of been square, R1 or R1 and circle nothing was standard.

But as time moves on a new generation picks up their controller they are going to be interested in different things that PS1 demo disc with the t Rex blew our primitive 16 bit brains back on launch but to kids today it's laughable.
The new gen of kids coming into to hobby seem to value different things to us there seems to be a huge focus on online play, streamers, gaming personalities, and social experiences, convience of digital downloads. To me I value none of that but that's ok like my parents not liking the band's I would listen to its just the natural cycle.

Gameseeker_Frampt49d ago

Just about every year in the 7th generation was great and something we most likely won't experience again.

2009 for example had Assassin's Creed 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age: Origins, Uncharted 2, Halo 3: ODST, Killzone 2, Borderlands, Bayonetta, and Demon's Souls to name a few.

just_looken48d ago

It still amazes me we got over 7 rockstar games ps2/ps3 but 3 for the ps3/ps4/ps5

Dragon age 1-3 and mass effect 1-3 in 7ish years what a generation.
