I’ve seen a lot of threads about wishes for the game. Seems like that always happens for a new game, and sometimes the developers listen, sometimes they shouldn’t IMO.
People say; “Put drivable cars in! Crafting! Animals! Make it more like Minecraft! Make a Battle Royal mode! Base building! It should be more like game X!”
This is how we end up with games like Fallout 76.
My wish for this game is that the developers care about game mechanics, they make the kind of game they would like to play, the progression is rewarding, the story engaging, the graphics and art design are top notch, the multiplayer works intuitively and easily. I hope the developers don’t listen to anyone but themselves and have excellent instincts about what is fun to play, and why people love video games in the first place. I hope the game is polished until it shines.
A well designed video game is like a good movie or book. It takes you along for the ride. The creator’s vision is all that is needed. Video games designed by what the public thinks they want always always always suck.
So far from what I’ve seen this game is going to kick ass. I hope when it’s released the people working on it are proud of what they have made and the game is a blast to play.
