Default Re: The Video Game Thread

The Superman Returns game had the right idea. Rather than Superman having a health bar, Metropolis had a health bar, and you had to protect the city. He was invulnerable - his job was to stop the city and civilians from being hurt. Superman himself had a stamina bar that was charged by sunlight, and every time he used his powers the bar would go down. If you flew higher into the air, the bar would charge faster. The flying mechanics of the game were also terrific.

Sadly, the rest of the game's elements didn't live up to those improvements. If a developer can take those things I described above and run with them, they'd have a pretty good game.
