...would you be okay with it?
The question occurred to me when I recently found the trailer for the planned Full Throttle sequel. In my opinion, it looked really, really bad, but then it got me thinking about how the trailer suggested an action game rather than an adventure game. It also made me wonder what it'd look like if it were made in modern times, with today's graphic capabilities and video game audience.
Then I realized that if you described Full Throttle's premise today to a gamer with no knowledge of it, the adventure genre would not be the first thing that pops into that gamer's mind. This made me wonder what a Full Throttle action game would be like.
Anyway, I'm sure you all believe that it's wrong to make Full Throttle a non-adventure game. But when I think about it, the premise, setting, etc. really does fit the sandbox action-genre, and you can still tell a really great story using said genre.
I'm not saying it should be done. I'm saying that I wouldn't be too angered if, let's say, Double Fine decided to make the game.
How about you guys?
