What kind of environments do you like to see in your preferred genre of video games?

Also, if anyone knows a game with large expanses of forests, please tell me the name.

Skyrim with mods can have nice looking environments.
>>

This

None of the environments I truly want to see don't exist yet AFAIK

Speaking of environments I fucking love them so much I love abandon looking areas thats been overturned by nature and I love cybercity playgrounds

I love old hidden temples that're cozily packed between a lot of trees

I really dont know why I'm focusing on Character art for vidya I love environments more...

Whats wrong with insects?

I just want a mountain that actually feels like a goddamn mountain and not a pointy hill. Like, a fucking mountain that is by itself the size of an entire 'zone'.

Speaking of forests, they are never dense enough. Stupid archaic character movement, can't have anything that requires anything more complicated than walking.
>>
>>263798905
I like lush forests too, especially North Eastern US forests. REmake and Outbreak File 2 had pretty good forest areas, but they weren't big enough.

I like fantasy settings the most, with lush forests, mystic ruins, and creepy dungeons. Cozy towns in the middle of forests with trees in them. All the good shit.

Sci Fi settings also can be cool, but it takes a shit ton amount of detail to make them really convincing and giving you the feel to actually live in them.
>>
>>263801790
Can you make it any brighter and blurrier?

>>263798905

I just want a really big grassy field that actually takes time to get from one side to the other.

>>263801878

It took me a while to come around to insects but they're breddy cool and useful if your an art person. Humans steal natures OC for their designs

I only really like beetles though
>>
>>263802230

I want this too

I want a character that has some extreme mobility mechanics to make it seem like It WOULD take a while to get from point A to point B in that field
Slow ass characters in big areas is stupid
Extremely mobile characters in tiny areas is even fucking stupider

Boiling Point.

It's an open world game filled with a huge forested country, with random factions wars in the middle of said forest and forest snakes.

Anything lost, forgotten and desolated buildings. Mostly they are starting areas which is kind of a shame, but I'll always enjoy mossy dungeon.

Have you ever had a house centipede skitter up your leg out of nowhere?
Have you ever had dirt daubers shit fury all over your house?
Did you enjoy it when wasps built nests on and claimed your porch for themselves?
How did you take it when you saw bees crawling into holes in your porch ceiling?
What did you think of the ants that built several 3 feet deep colonies in your back yard?

Tron cyberspace

Anything like Act 4 (Hell) from Diablo 2, specifically River of Flame

Towns/Cities/Places intertwined with water (like based across a lake or the ocean or a river or whatever)

Sewers that are extremely long and complex, but are really tiny in walking space.

I can't tell if that is a real photo or not.

I don't know why but video games have a hard time giving you this sense of scale paintings give. It's almost always vast plains and mountains with a few herbs and trees or very closed, cave-like environments.

I don't remember playing a game where I looked up and saw something like this huge door or a statue and was amazed.
>>
I like art deco.

At least I liked it until Bioshock ruined it for me.

I mean, Bioshock looks amazing, but holy shit, is it repetitive. Countless expanse of art deco corridors and some of the shittiest, bland console-influenced level design, ever. Even when they add some verticality into the mix, it doesn't really feel truly vertical. It's all just flat and uniform and glossy. The only place that tries to stand out is that bit with a big open courtyard shipyard sort of place, whatever it was.

I also like space stations.

I still think System Shock 2 was the best space station in video games. The environment wasn't overdone and felt realistic rather than just a setup for a video game. I think this is crucial for immersion -- the more you try to make the environments video gamey, the less fun they end up being. Compare the masterful level design of HL1 to the crap that was HL2.
>>
>>263803039

You just named some of the bugs I hate and exactly the ones I don't mind

Had a centipede crawl on me once and I was done. Went in my basement and then Genocide


Overall I think i hate cockroaches. Not the tiny ones the fucking massive faggots that just sit there and give less fucks that you're going to squish them.

I CANT EVEN SQUISH THEM its disgusting as fuck because they're so big. I just cant do it.
I'll leave a spider alone as long as they're outside.

I had a bro near my porch light all summer he fucking demolished the mosquito for us and then my bug hating bitch made faggot of a friend seen it and got rid of it
Spiders wont harm you unless you fuck with them.

Futuristic cityscapes are another one of my favorites.

Unexplainable and bizarre constructions or formation that apparently defy both sense and laws of physics.

The sort of stuff that leave you flabbergasted because while it's obvious that they are not natural there is also no obvious way anyone or anything could have built them.

Cities or settlement built on ruins of a ancient civilization, oftentimes the ruins are so massive in size that it seemed that they were houses of giants.

Places that defy the rules of Euclidean space and topology (ie climbing down a stair and find yourself on the roof, one way "portals" rooms leading to or containing themselves and so on)

Cities built in strange ways either by technology or magic (for example on floating pieces of land or in the sea like a giant ship) with many air/ships going to and from it and a lot of commerce going on.

Forests and hills, maybe leading to a stronghold in the mountains.

Underground cities, both deep and semi-covered

Large expanses of open wasteland with interesting things in it + good atmosphere + fun way to get around

Basically, places that make you travel but also make travelling not a chore.

Imagine crossing the Australian desert in a beat-up jeep 20 years after the bombs fall with fun companions and hilarious idle dialogue and also weird spooky shit at night and enemies to avoid during the day and supplies to scavenge and manage to keep your jeep going and yourselves alive.

Would b fun.

An unbroken concrete landscape. 800 million people living in the ruin of the old world and the mega structures of the new one. Mega blocks. Mega highways. Mega City One. Convulsing. Choking. Breaking under its own weight. Citizens in fear of the street. The gun. The gang. Only one thing fighting for order in the chaos: the men and women of the Hall of Justice. Juries. Executioners.

This thread is making me wonder about something.

Would you all play a game wherein your main goal was simply exploration?

You'd start out in pretty mild areas with simple walking running and jumping but would later advance to areas where there is possible danger and you have acquired various ways of getting around through your exploration.

DaS itself isn't really all that big though. If you removed all combat and enemies you could probably jog to the end of the zone in like 3 minutes.

There needs to be a game focused on multiplayer, small server based or something, in which you can build and maintain a town in all kinds of various terrains ranging through all of these.

Something chill and relaxing you can just play around in for fun. Also throw in some Harvest Moon elements.

There was a city-builder thread the other day. I posted about how city-builders are almost never vertical, you just build a sprawl along the ground and hope a skyscraper grows. I'm shocked we've come this far in years and no one has made a vertically-integrated city sim yet. A cyberpunk city sim, however, ought to let you build in a 3D space. You can sprawl over the ground, but real development would be stacking structures and neighborhoods on top of each other. Too much traffic congestion downtown? Upgrade the skyscrapers to support a sky-highway and sky-rail. Want a landmark but can't demolish any of the real estate it would benefit? Put that fucking castle ON TOP of a skyscraper. Deregulate the roof of a commercial space, watch people put their houses on top of a mall.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was full of boner-inducing environments for me, but the one I loved exploring the most was the Ancient Cistern.

If you already released a game you can not change its core very much anymore. You can add on, yes, but if the core is not really changeable.
And MMOs usually are not graphically or environmentally impressive at all.

The only games where you could such stuff are TES games, because they have a core which is capable of creating such things and modders could have enough time if they would be more organized.

That Akira image is itself an homage to Lawrence of Arabia. I wish I had a screenshot, but Pete O'Toole does walk to his motorcycle like that in the very beginning.

No, what you are saying is that only MMOs could create such sceneries, which just total bullshit.
The type of game which could create something like this, would be a game, where the devs really have enough time for it, and MMOs are not special at all in this regard. Devs patch their games the whole time, no matter the genre.

I want rolling hills as far as the eye can see, with a partly cloudy blue sky. I want a crystal blue ocean, water so pure you could drink it and weep. I want awe inspiring things, things that inspire the wanderlust in me.

This. Most people who play video games dont even want such impressive sceneries because it would make the game way too complicated for them.
Either too complicated or too simple. Because it either would be a really realistic slow paced simulation, or it would be just a stupid walking simulator with no content at all.

Sadly, most people dont realistic games, or games where you have to think too much and need patience. They rather like games which spoonfed you, are easy to understand and simple things running in the background.

I like a sandbox/exploration world big enough that, while I wouldn't want to traverse the entirety of it, I could go in one direction and stake for myself a place to familiarize with and call home. Another player would find some other neck of the woods to call his own. I start a new save and go a different place and have a different experience. That's what a massive world should be. Skyrim promises that but everywhere you go it's the same experience for everyone everywhere.

Excellent thread, folks.
If there's anything modern game design lacks, it is good environmental design and a sense of scale.

Personally, I love all sorts of well done environments: "nice" cyberpunk, grimy "Kowloon" type cyberpunk, FF-esque unreal massive structures, urban decay, massive high fantasy cities, funny looking mountains, comfy looking towns in woods, urban fantasy etc etc.

Pic related. Just a random pic from my environment folder.
I'll post a couple more.
>>
>>263798905
Since good environments are harder to do than boring bland and everyday ones I hardly ever see anything I want in games.

Personally I want to be in a giant hulk of metal, I love exploring space ships and shit, but what I really want is a spaceship so large entire countries could exist within their interiors. Hell I love underground mazes and labyrinths too. I guess I just love the idea of being inside a colossal artificial locale where the natural world holds little sway.

I would fucking love this.

Sometimes you need to visit the Village to buy some Things and you have to transport it trough the forest. The carrying monster gets tired and you need to make it happy again, rest and play with it.

Potion brewing is a deep system and you have to gather herbs and mushrooms and all sorts of things for them.

You can build your own furniture and decorate the House, make your clothes and other things you need.

After a while you get a wild kitten-like monster who's staying if you treat it well. This could repeat with other Pets like a Bird or a Dog or even that Monster to carry Stuff for you.

Sometimes Villagers travel trough the Forest to you to get help with Sicknesses or want to buy Potions. You get Friends with some of them after Time goes by and you saw them often. They help you when you're in the Village.

I like structures so big they can only be truly appreciated when clouds pass between you and them.
I like forests. Actual forests.

I like after-the-event worlds. But not immediately after and mostly dead.

Environment is not all. Sounds me be fitting.
No music. Fuck your flute outside of cutscenes.
Ambient sounds must be diverse and non-repeating.
I have great hearing and a musical ear and there's nothing that kills me more than hearing a coyote or somesuch critter yelp or howl the same fucking audio file twice in a row.

Atmosphere is something that's hard to build and easy to demolish.

my nigger more people need to play jak and daxter precursor legacy

it's a crying shame you see all the good shit that DOES exist in games currently but it's so small when you're actually in it or you get across it too fast, or something else spoils it somehow. what a good fucking aesthetic it had man I love it

the place in this pic takes like fucking 40 seconds to run from one end to another in, it's a crying shame but still it just looks so great and fun, in real life something like it would be fucking baller

tfw most of wow's environments suck ass but it's actually fun to explore certain zones like deepholme in cataclysm or vash'jir on a private server because the private server devs leave the environments there but shiploads of enemies are missing, so it's just the environment there to check out and nothing else to ever really do in some zones because they only did a few areas completely barebones

wow's main problem is that things have to respawn faster because of so much people playing and the possibility of people packing into one area so you can never really take in an environment even if they are simplistic in the end and places like night elven architecture and houses in the tops of trees are full of lost potential along with the blood elf areas having no skyways or archways you can get up on and walk across and look at the city below


so fucking full of disappointments, if only you could go all over shit like roaches then wow would be more fun but you're restricted and the designs aren't over the top enough, I want my catwalks in vidya

Betrayer is just open forest in colonial America. It might be what you want. Gameplay doesn't suit everyone though.

Forests, mountains an plains. Also the occasional quiet village surrounded by golden fields.
I have a deep rooted hatred For deserts and coastal regions. I really don't like warm climates actually..

I was hoping Prey 2 was going to do this, but that's not a thing now. Maybe cyberpunk 2077 will.

Wait till the mad max game by the just cause devs, open world post apocalyptic Australian outback, physics based vehicle combat, etc. I'm pretty hype for once
