Randomizeing Games?
« on: August 02, 2009, 08:17:30 pm »
Does anyone know a game that you play and everytime the map and game randomizes like one time your walking down the walkway and you get attacked by like a monster and the walls break and the workers run but next time you play you walk down the same walkway in a diff game and theres a new door open  and a fire started. Anyone know a game like that?

Left 4 dead apparently does this to some extent.

Left 4 Dead 2 will, L4D doesn't really (besides zombie spawns).

Diablo 2 has randomized levels, loot etc.

That and using your imagination, although it looks like that game is like totally out of fashion these days

Diablo2 isn't all that random actually. Once you play through it a few times you realise that the 'randomness' is actually pretty fixed. There are fixed events inthe game that are interconnected by random pathing, but the game sets the minimum and maximum distance between those points so the variation is actually very limited. Mobs are different only subtly, and loot always falls in to a specific braket, with the only randomness being 'Ugly Sword of the Silly' vs 'Semi-cute Sword of the Wit'.

Roguelikes do that, but they lack "good" graphics.
Left4Dead does it in some places.
Any game with random level generation.
