My complementary summary of this topic:

(O_o) !!!!

I think this is a joke, but I'm not sure. I do think it would be neat to be able to go into first person mode and charge around with your creature going Quake on those fool spiders, ala Dungeon Keeper's "possess" spell, and it would be even more awesome if your creatures made armor and wacky guns and rocket launchers for you to use; heck, they could make nutty floating arenas in the sky with jump pads!

It'd make a good mod; having little arena-like planets for the creatures to bash each other about on with railguns.

Perhaps if spore was just 'another sim game' then no, but spore, to my knowledge, is going to be ground breaking, technologically as well as the entire game concept, and yes i am aware of sim earth but spore will be so much bigger it will be the benchmark for new games of its  type (if anyone else can create a game which will be like spore)

Just look at Half Life 2, just another FPS? No Half Life 2 is now he benchmark for all future FPSs of the same type, HL2 brought innovative AI and physics and rejuvinated a slightly stagnated genre, although there are still lots of great FPSs out there.

Spore will be the  HL2 of sim games. but more so.


Although with FPSs i cant wait to play S.T.A.L.K.E.R, lots of good AI and physics ideas in that game.

I dont know how people can criticize this game, its a purely original idea. If you want a first person shooter with custom models, go download/make a mod for HL2 or something

Of course it's a joke. God.

"What we need is more games where you kill zombies and demons". How could he slip this one by you guys? Don't tell me we've really reached the stage where the raving fans can't handle criticism, no matter how ridiculous.

I got that.  I really hope he's not serious... as we have enough of those games to go around for the next decade.  But it is fun to see how many people get ruffled up over suggesting the Spore is a bad idea.

He's just trolling.

He loves arguments I guess. Fair play.
It could be frankie. It could be very fresh and clean. It could be a balloon.
