Anyways, I wanted to start commenting on interacting with props. I'll pull an example from Route 14 in Pokémon X and Y. When first encountering this route, I noticed a playground! My heart raced with joy as I realized you could play on the equipment!
I was sorely disappointed when I sat on the swing and nothing happened...
|"Is this swing glued to the ground?"|
You may think that allowing the player to swing is trivial and that I'm too picky of a player. But, I think it's the thought that counts. If players could swing, it would say that Game Freak goes the extra mile to put love into trivial details. I know there are big deadlines that prevent extra code, but it would be really fun to swing. The world would feel more alive and interactive.
Anyways, on a more positive note, at least you can ride down the slide!
|"Time to go down the slide again!"|
Thanks for reading!
