I've played generations 1, 2 and 3, and I haven't kept up to date since gen 4. It may be because of that, but personally I enjoyed gen 3 the most, even if I lost the progress I had up to then. With gen 3 the world began feeling much more alive, and that was something I really enjoyed. Plus, having a sweet-ass secret base was awesome.

This means that both the tone and the topics of the narrative, as well as the aesthetic feel both visually and aurally, merge well with the mechanics and the concept as well.
I believe that by following these guidelines a developer can make an amazing work with very few resources. For example, take the Katamari series. Those games don't have very good graphic definition by themselves, but the entire aesthetic elements blend together in order to make a game that looks, sounds and feels fantastic.
But then again, it's usually not enough to make a hit out of a game. I still have to figure that one out.

01 October 2012 - 03:42 AMMy two cents? I've come to think that, most of the time you see something - a behaviour, an attitude, an action, anything - that makes you feel hatred towards someone it's because it reflects something about yourself you dislike deeply.
I'm sure it doesn't apply to most occasions (given that you can feel hatred towards someone when they've been an asshole to you) but i've seen it happen so many times to me and so many people I know that I've made it kind of an axiom to my lifestyle.
It's inevitable to feel that way, I very well understand it, but in the end you're the only one who gets pain from feeling hatred towards someone (unless, of course, you externalise that hatred, but that's a very different thing). So my advice on this is to face and embrace the feeling, try to express it, and move on.
And maybe that's the better thing; most people would rather be hated than ignored. But that's my opinion.
