    Your favorite Game Engine

      Do you? What is the title of your Thesis? The correct answer for this question is always going to be "The best one for the job.".   It may be that if you need to expand upon this in your Thesis or rework your thesis ito take this into consideration.     like i tried to say: i search for your favorite game developing tool, not the best one for the job! to this question should be no correct or incorrect answer. Any answer is nothing but an answer!   And my title is (i hope i translate that correct) at the moment: a technological valuation of project anarchy. maybe i change it to "a technological valuation of multi-plattform engines at the example of project anarchy" or something similar. For that matter i need to find what most of the community likes and dislikes. For example 9 out of 10 comments like the CryEngine 3 and dislike Ogre3D (haha just for you Comet ;) :D ). That'll give me a frame in which i can put Project Anarchy.    Hope you understand what I'm trying to explain :)

    Your favorite Game Engine

    Sure. Problem is, i don't know if i can express myself that well. This should be no excuse, so i try it anyway I define an engine as an piece of software that can be the base of many games. I know there are differences between engines like there is sand at a beach. I mean, you can use the UDK for a RTS as well as for a MMOFPS. The difference is, that the RTS would never be as mighty and well designed as the MMOFPS.    Yeah, thats the spirit :D   I don't mean high-level engines in particularly, if you don't have any experience with them it's ok. So if Ogre3D is your favorite, it is your favorite, regardless if there are high-level engines that feature list is much bigger or anything. It would be better if you had a bit experience, but it isn't that necessary :)   I think the confusion results in my writing. I had my most experiences in high-level engines so i think my writing showed that a bit too much :D

    Your favorite Game Engine

    I understand your point and i should have seen such an answer coming    I know the answer in most of the cases is "it depends".    You described one way of getting your game started or developing it. But there are enough Developer who build their game around there most favorite Engine, i.e. Unity.   But, maybe i can wrap my question around, so you can answer it the way i can use it  Let's say it is up to you which genre or game you have to develop. You have this awesome unique game-world-breaking idea, it is your favorite genre (i know, here could be a depend too :P ) and you want create just a prototype in a game engine to get it to a publisher or supporter.  I know, there is a different between prototyping and developing of a game. In this case I set prototyping as the minimalistic development possible.   I hope you understand that wrapping in nearly that way i meant it :D :D   The whole context is more about which tool you like to use instead of which game you want to build.  And don't get me wrong, i appreciate your answer, it's nevertheless an answer :D
  4. Hey guys,   at first: i'm new to this forum and if my question, or discussion, is off-topic, feel free to move it to the right place. I thought "Game Programming"/"APIs and Tools" is/are the best place(s), because i need the opinion of game developers, skilled or new to it doesn't matter.   second: a quick search in this forum (seriously, just 5 minutes or so) didn't gave me the answer I'm searching for, that's why i open this topic! So please don't comment with "google it" or anything like this. It's not target-aimed to my goal.    third: like i mentioned, i posted this in "Game Programming" too. I thought maybe both forums/sections are the right place, if one of the admins doesn't agree with me, feel free to delete one.   Now to my discussion point: For my Bachelor Thesis I'm currently writing at, I need to find the communities favorites game engine. For that reason i ask you: What is your favorite Game Engine and why? I'm not necesseraly interested in which games are made with it. My interest in the developing part. But not only I'm interested in the engines you like, furthermore i would like to hear about your most hated engine and why you prefer the other one. For example:  "I like the Unity Engine because the 'Just-Hit-Save' function is really easy and fast to work with. I don't like the Unreal Engine because of this scripting thingy, it's terrible. Also Unity offers more features than Unreal and it's easier/faster to work with them" I would enjoy reading more complex and detailed answers, this example is ok, but quite short    That's it. Let the discussion begin    Greetz, Napp    FYI: english is (obviously) not my native language, please don't be a too big grammar nazi
