What they dont tell you in shooter games - Page 2

post #11 of 39
Have to agree with others, random events would just serve to piss people off. Not to mention I doubt it'd add any real sense of realism into the games. Sure at first it might be cool (especially in single player games where you want the player to be immersed.), but even then after the first time or two you see it, it'll feel old.

i am just saying if it would happen through out a few of the modern shooters it could be neat you just do a quick tap of the reload to clear it and you would be all set

I think the pissing off factor greatly depends on how the jamming is done. Even realistically guns don't jam or misfire that often and when they do its usually just a mater of pulling back the bolt to clear the old round and get a new one in to the barrel, a fast and simple procedure.

What I would like to see is condition based jamming as a gun is far more likely to jam if you have been crawling in the mud with it. This would also bring a new layer of tactics to shooters. Do I want to reduce my target area by crawling and risk jamming or do I choose a more up right stance and risk being picked of by a sniper for example.

STALKER and Fallout 3/NV come to mind. I think Fallout did it better in the fact that the player animation attempted to shows the character try to clear the round. Exp: when the 10mm SMG jams, you pull out the clip and hit the the barrel a couple times, the reinsert the clip (youtube clip showing them all). STALKER just stops firing and you reload the clip.

AA2/3 still has jamming.

It's quite fun to me.

It's such a "OH SHI~" situation when you turn the corner and hear that jam clunk.

I actually had the funniest thing happen in AA3...me and the enemy...had both our guns Jam...right as we turned the corner, so it turned into a rifle butt competition.

Yeah, it has been used in several games already. The Stalker games were the first to come to mind. Few others that I can't think of atm, but even some quite old games had gun malfunctions or jams.
