The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

FPS GAMES SUCK!

32 posts in this topic

OKAY!!!! I hate to say this but fps games suck. Every fps game I've played from CoD to the Crysis and Halo franchises suck! The only good fps game I know of is Rouge Warrior and that's only because of it graphics and stealth gameplay!

I don't believe that to be true! The games you mentioned don't "suck" at all, even though I'm not that big of a fun of Crysis. I especially liked the F.E.A.R series, Doom 3 and Return to castle Wolfenstein (these are my favorites). And even though I don't like a game, I still find great elements in almost each and every one of them. That being from a developer point of view. Anyway, it's your opinion.

Rouge Warrior? Sounds like a game about make-up, not guns.

Anyhow, you didn't mention any of my particular favourite shooters - the DOOM and Quake series, Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, Blood, or Prey. I'm really enjoying Duke Nukem Forever, too.

Duke Nukem forever was one of the few fps games I've ever enjoyed. Rouge Warrior is a real game, google it. It's sick. But it was for xbox 360 and consoles suck balls.

Bwahahhaha... It's Rogue Warrior and I didn't think anyone else had heard of it!

I was actually looking forward to it (cause of the book) but when it came out, everything I read said it was a pile of rubbish in the craftsmanship department. Things like broken AI.

Rouge is French for "Red". Like "Baton Rouge" (the capitol of Louisiana).

Hm..., vote down worked for me. :-)

//EDIT: Oops, sorry, I wanted to vote back up after but forgot that this board doesn't support it. Sorry. I'll ++ a post to counteract it. Maybe that's why it is normally disabled. [img]http://public.gamedev.net/public/style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif[/img]

There's some automatic voter enabler registration thingy that mysteriously selects who can and can't rate down. You were chosen by the God of Rate to bestow your curses on the unfortunate.

I don't know why I'm trying to salvage this thread, but oh well:

A [url="http://www.industrygamers.com/news/doom-creator-fires-back-at-devs-with-snooty-attitude/"]recent article[/url] may be somewhat pertinent to the, uh, "topic." Basically it is Carmack defending FPS games being accused of lacking creativity by (in his opinion) many indie game developers.

I guess it's a privilege reserved for members with a blue animal as an avatar, 'cause it still there for me too.

Also I like to use this opportunity to say that the NEW SMILEYS SUCK, we should go back to the old ones.
