The Source engine is, of course, here, but there’s a lot more to find.
We play games to get away from the rules and standards of real life. But for a few years now, games have been trying to be as close to real life as they can be. Even though this might defeat the point of games, it is amazing to see what programmers and designers can do to make digital events feel more real.
A big step forward is being able to add a quality physics engine that works well and lets you drive until your machine crashes. You can do this with a lot of games, but some of them make you want to take Physics 101 all over again.
Valve is the best game company in the world, and its biggest hit, Half-Life, is a big reason why. It tells the story of Gordon Freeman, a mute physics genius who fights attackers from other dimensions and a government cover-up. This goes on into the famous Half-Life 2, which changed the game with its Gravity Gun.
The game’s physics were changed to make this weapon possible, and it shows with all the power and punch that science can give. Once you get the Gravity Gun, you’ll wish you never had to use your hands to pick up anything again.
Horror is a very personal thing, but most of us agree that the Amnesia series has a lot of good things going for it. It all started with the first game, in which a young man wakes up in the depths of a scary castle. As he looks around, dark goo and twisted humanoids are after him.
On top of that, his only defense is his brain and his skill to move things. Get boxes, books, chairs, and other things to throw around, put strategically, or use as distractions while you try to solve the puzzles that are keeping you trapped.
Human Fall Flat
Simple and funny, rag-doll physics is based on the fact that animals and people can crumple and fall apart when hit quickly or out of the blue. So, these rules of physics work best for big humanoids that look like animated punching bags.
This is the cast of Human Fall Flat, an obstacle course based on physics. The levels in the game are set up in a certain way, but it’s more fun to see how other people have used the game’s workshop to make their own courses.
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Detective work is hard, and the harder the case, the more closely you have to look at the people and places involved. As a federal spy in Condemned: Criminal Origins, you’ll have to go to many dark, shady places in a dangerous city.
No matter what you do for a living, you’ll be unarmed most of the time and have to use what’s around you. Each one has its own weight, feel, and force when swung. The way you hit an enemy and what you’re using to hit them affects how they react. Just don’t get hit yourself.
The Grand Theft Auto series is a classic in the world of video games, but it wasn’t until GTA 3 that it really took off. While we wait for the next game, we have to make do with GTA 5, which has been out for a long time but is still being played. You can switch between three main characters, each of whom has a different background and personality. You can play around in all of Los Santos, which is not in Los Angeles.
They all move, run, jump, and fight like guys their size would, but the driving is the real star. Each car works within its own limits, and you can’t just push buttons or you might crash into other cars, but it’s a lot of fun to watch.
It’s hard to believe that Angry Birds, which started out as a small mobile game, has become such a big deal. We were hooked by the simple idea that we could throw small round birds at small round pigs to save their eggs. When we saw that the pigs were making structures out of different materials that were both weak and complicated, the task seemed harder than it was.
It became about using the different strengths and skills of the birds to attack the weak spots of each building and bring those pigs down.
World Of Goo
Little Inferno was a strange game that you could also think of as a pyromania model. It was followed by World of Goo, which was a much simpler game. In Spacebar Clicker, you play as a keeper of goo balls that can think for themselves and only want to be free. To do this, they need to get through a set of pipes, which they can’t do on their own.
You have to find creative, stable ways to join them while still following the rules of physics so they don’t fall over. Other goo balls and machines are used to test how well you know and understand the rules.
Totally Accurate Battle Simulator
When the word “accurate” is in the title, how can you go wrong talking about accuracy? Totally Accurate Battle Simulator (TABS), as the name suggests, lets you play out different battles from history and fiction. The army and units will be bound by how human-like they look and how strong they are, as well as by what they are using.
Like in most real wars, the forces will fight until one side falls over. With ranged attackers, you can see all the projectiles as they move, spread out, curve, and pierce their target, knocking them back with sheer force depending on their size.
