I’ve ranted a couple times recently about how tantalizing interactive physics — like that seen in Doom3 and Half-Life 2 — is. True full interaction is the next big step in gaming, like the jump from Duke Nukem’s 2½D to Quake2’s 3D. The day I can (in-game) set a house on fire with an RPG, or level any wall (made of an appropriately destructible material) with a gattling gun will be a good day.
I’ve heard that Red Faction, released three years ago, had something the marketrons called Geo-mod. Anyone play this game? I’d like to get my hands on it..
