Do we really need another Sim game?

The whole concept has been done time and time again. They should simply scrap the whole design and turn it into an FPS.

This is a joke right?  Do you realize how ambitious and original this game is?  The game spans the entire history of a species.  Not just any species, but your own species that you build.  You can evolve to them point where you can build spaceships and go literally anywhere in the games universe (which i'm assuming is beyond huge).

Aside from all of that, the way this game is being devoloped is groundbreaking.  The game is being done with no pre-created animations.  They have no animators.  Its all done through code / mathematics.  I'm assuming it cuts the budget for making the game dramatically and also gives the game a lot more variety. Not only that, but it allows us them to have these creatures in an insanely small amount of data.

Common man, an fps?  That whole genre is done to death.  This is actually original and unique.

Sim-FPS, a game where you create a race of gentle creatures so you can shoot them all with a nailgun.

Come on, don't tell me you're really falling for this evolution mumbo jumbo. I've seen it time and time again with Sim Earth and Sim Life.

What we really need is an FPS that deals with fighting demons and zombies.

Or, a game where you have to raise a family, build them a home and get them all good jobs, then they have to survive a zombie holocaust.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Zombie holocaust.
Hey, instead of FPS, lets make it online, third person isometric. You'll kill minor zombies, so you can get stronger, so you can kill better zombies, so you can get stronger, so you can kill tough zombies. We'll just keep it going and see how long suckers...er.....customers will play!

Since when is expressing an opinion a crime? You're simply a bloody fascist that fails to recognize the truth in what I say!

Another great and totally useful post by Demorgora...

Please, if you think the game is a tired and useless concept... go think up your own FPS (as if that genre isn't tired ::)) and leave us alone. Yes I may seem hostile. But I really do not appreciate being referred to as a "brainwashed thrall" by somebody who knows very little about me.

And before you attempt to, don't bother using the word "asinine" in an insult yet again; it just makes you look like you try too hard.
It could be frankie. It could be very fresh and clean. It could be a balloon.

Heh, must you spew this tripe on a thread completely unrelated to what we were discussing before? I must have hurt your feelings, but the truth is the truth and if you wish to argue with me about it, respond in the proper thread, that is if you can even conjure up an argument to defend yourself.

That thread has been locked.

Regardless, I think this is a lame thread. No matter who started it.

That is unfortunate. I was having quite a time with it, too.

Just as you find it futile to argue with a "brainwashed thrall" so do I.

I guess I wasn't as reactionary and JIHADI on your ass as you hoped. Just do me one favour and read the damn book before you preach your own divine wisdom over it.

You seem really ignorant.
