This one is in reference to a very well-known song by the Beach Boys. It’s from the song “Surfin’ USA.
I don’t know why you’d even think of these things when you’re playing an awesome game like this. But they might as well be. It’s like if you’re playing the game and you see a person with a very small upper body like me, and you think, “I wonder if that could possibly be me.
Well, I mean, I can’t speak for the game but if you are playing an RPG and you see someone with a very small upper body and you wonder if that is the person youre playing with, is it any wonder? It’s a very strange thing to think about.
I got this from my buddy, and I think he got it from the movie, but I’m not sure which one. Either way, I don’t think he’s right. Its like theyre both right. I dont know why I put that in but I guess its just a weird thing I guess.
I think a lot of game designers who think the game is too small for the player will be surprised to know that a large part of death-in-life is the result of being on the wrong body. I’ve seen that happen to me before. One time, I was sitting in a mall with my roommate, we were watching a movie and the theater started to close. we couldnt hear anything but we could hear the movie going.
I think the biggest obstacle to good game design is the way we often underestimate the importance of players’ input. We think a game is finished when the player has “won.” But this is just another metaphor for how we treat players as though they are mere props to be manipulated by programmers. A good game should be something you play against yourself. But we put less value on our players as players, as though they are mere props.
In a world where we as a society are obsessed with how we look and what we do, it’s only natural that we spend so much time focusing on what we look like, and so much time on what we do, that much of our time becomes a waste. And with games, the opposite is true too. A video game is a game in a way that almost no other media is, and the only way to know how to play a game is to play it yourself.
That said, the beauty of a game is that it is so much more than the sum of its parts. It’s a game that can be played by anyone, with any skill level, and is a joy to play. That’s why so many video games have stories inside them that we can all relate to. And that’s why the idea of a game with no story is so terrifying and so difficult to swallow.
This is the same reason why so many video games have trailers for their games. Because they’re meant to sell us on how fun it is to play them. The problem is that a lot of the trailers are just a collection of images, or a very short video with a short voice over. Like many of the other trailers, this one wasn’t meant to be taken seriously, but it was to sell us on how cool it was and how much fun it was to play.
The problem is that there is no story. Which is really bad, because a game with no story means you just have a bunch of images or video clips that make no sense. There needs to be a story, and if there isn’t, there is no reason to play.
