If they would have called it "an interactive movie" would you hate it less then?

Yes, or preferably make it a game with better gameplay in the few moments there is some.

Dreamfall was great for what it was. An interactive movie. The gameplay was fine, for an interactive movie.

I didn't find any problems with the gameplay, it was the way how the story was told, that made it less cool for me then TLJ.

The fighting for example was terrible, it was better if it wasn't there at all and we would have just watched some elite fighting scene.

No, Phantasmagoria 2 was a good interactive movie. Dreamfall was simply a story wrapped in shit.

interactive movie is a contradiction in terms, imo, its a nicer way of say "not very interactive game"

There is no excuse whatsoever not to have great, seamless gameplay, and a great story.

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time should have demostrated this too everyone.

Am I the only one who wasn't bothered by Dreamfall's gameplay? It was actually nice, maybe except for the fighting system.

And ok, make it "interactive story" then.
I know I said I won't say it again, but you all really should play Photopia. It's a linear interactive fiction, and I dare you to play it and say it should have had more gameplay.
Dreamfall is similar, only with graphics.

Nope, I too wasn't absolutely bothered by the gameplay, I actually liked the fihting... it was kinda easy... It's the way the story was told I had a few doubts towards, and how stupid the charachters where, I hate it when people in stories don't take it what they really wan't to, and can have.

Im not saying theres anything wrong with games being liner. PoP:SoT couldnt get more liner, in fact.
Merely that movies are very much the wrong place for games in (constantly) take inspiration from. Thats why I hate the term "interactive movie", or anything branding itself as such.
The story should be in the gameplay, not leterboxed around it in cutscenes.

Well, one of the best games in terms of balanced gameplay and cut scenes was imo in BG&E, they were directed like little movies, but still left a lot of space for action and dialogues, only thing I'd wish to see in it would some sort of a detective aspect, maybe in BG&E2 when it comes out finally, like a bigger city with more places to visit.

meh.
Utter crap imo, better then Heroes or certainly Shadow, but worse then Adventure...which itself was worse then almost any 2D sonic.

Adding impressive FF-style cutscenes dosnt improve sonic in any way.

--
Give us a Sonic game set on mobius, not this earth rubbish we are getting for so long.
Base it roughly around "Sonic Rush".
2D game, 3D charecters, and with the speed-boast concept which worked pretty well. Make Sonic blast left to right, into and out of the screen and generaly scortch a motion-blur onto your retina. But make sure the landscape has cool twists and gizmos you dont expect.

Use the power of the new systems to make the most impressive looking fundimentaly 2D game ever made. (current title probably goes to "Donkey Kong Jungle Beat" which look amazing in bits).

This Sonic game should have LOTS of levels, as well as multiplayer, both co-op and race modes.

Oh, and quit add charecters, theres already a bazallion varations of Sonic.
Enougn already!

Finished Kirby NiD last night. Nightmare is tricky at first but easy once you figure out the patterns.

Yes, which made me happy.
Its "kinda" more like a racing game then a proper sonic...its on rails, but you stear left right, jump and controll speed.
Could be quite good.

About the charecters mind, I have no problem with other charecters if their significantly difference for gameplay.
Tails was exactly that, and Knunkles was too.

Out of sheer boredom I've installed Metal Gear Solid again. Fantastic game, both in terms of story and gameplay. So far I've contacted Meryl for the first time after beating Ocelot.
