I'm announcing our new message board at http://www.cerebrumsoftware.com "> http://www.cerebrumsoftware.com for game players and developers to voice their opinions of what features should be programmed into next-generation RPGs. We got a great response from our initial postings, and our board is really starting to generate some amazing questions and answers from people who obviously love to play games.
Some of the current hot topics include:
Infinite object interaction (IOI) and the ability to use any and every object that you see on the screen
Weather, dynamics, and how it should affect gameplay
Economics, via monetary and barter-driven systems
Reality simulation, and the level of depth necessary for a next-generation game
New advanced character AI
Advanced multiplayer techniques
and a whole lot more!
We want to hear what the gaming world and the game development world is interested, and why. Drop by and read some posts... reply if you have something to say (and I'm sure you do
Thanks, and we look forward to seeing your posts!
