What’s your favourite game genre? What type of game do you like to
cuddle up with, and gets you all fuzzy inside? And what would you love
to see added to these type of games? (Yes there is the whole do it
yourself argument, but leave it!)
I personally adore olden day set real-time strategy games, like Age Of
Empires. I love that game, but have got tired of it’s simple graphics
and repetitive gameplay. I haven’t looked into age of Mythology due to
not having a newish windows computer to run it on, but soon I hopefully
will dual-boot that problem away on a nice newer pc. I tried Black and
White, but it wasn’t really about building as much.
What I badly want, is a 3d based RTS, set on a nice lush grassy place
that is very very open. You start off with some chunky little villagers,
and some grassy tree area, and work from there. Building is a much more
involved process or laying walls and floor, and then choosing the
interior - decoration (simple, 1 click, not sims here :)), and then you
can place things. A few fires for a cookhouse, some leather tools and a
furnice for a blacksmith a lot later on, some beds (and a sign outside
denoting visitor access) for a hotel.
Of course you can put a bed beside a leather workshop, but noise would
be a problem.. but the people working could sleep there.
I would just love a game with this level of micromanagement, but still
has independant villagers and whatnot.. perhaps I just want to escape
suburbia (and perhaps I should have less time than this to rant about
silly topics), but I would enjoy something open and warm :)
