I need some ideas please
I have been considering making a game with some friends.
Now this is a lot of ideas, now basically i would like you guys to tell me some ideas you have that i have not listed, or good elements and features you have enjoyed in other games.
Its main ideas and elements need to be new and innovative like portal or like minecraft.
I brainstormed with one of my friends on what a good game needs and this is what we thought of;
decent graphics(dwarf fortress is an example of where this has been over looked)
easy navigation and menu perhaps immersive or an innovative menu (e.g a hall full of doors that represent options and they must be walked through)
an easy menu and control scheme with the ability to customize it(another dwarf fortress mistake)
unique well defined characters (think glados from portal or caleb from blood) e.g if the character is an evil villain he must wear a big brown dirty coat with a few holes (think fallout nv) with a big hat that hides his eyes all but for two small red glowing dots, he needs a rough/deep voice and a personality eminates mess with me, i dare you, and if some one does mess with him he should remain calm and leave without threatening the person just glance at them.
so that is what i mean by well defined.
it needs to be fun
it should immerse the player fully
character development, it should make a player feel sad or happy if a charachter dies or if the character is happy
a variety of weapons and tools e.g alliance the silent war (not yet released, i seriously suggest you check it out) has a huge amount of guns or tools and so does borderlands.
easy to get into (dwarf fortress again does this badly, dont get me wrong it is an excellent game)
variety of environments
good sound effects and music
a few epic battles
high poly models and good textures
strategy and tactics
the character controls everything e.g brothers in arms hells highway, you were able to tell the npcs what to do
heres an idea maybe an rts that when you have a battle plan you could take part in the battle as a soldier and switch between the commander and soldier views
I am going to post this on some other forums now so i will be offline.
