I think this is because Bethesda dudes are not sure what to do with them if you actually let them surrender. Do they just run off and despawn? What about the loot? If it just turned them into a neutral NPC, then you'd have a bandit walking around being friendly, which doesn't make much sense either.

You can say all you want about BF4 but the animations in that game are the most gorgeous I've ever seen in an FPS. I think Metro Last Light is on par graphics wise but the overall impression is so underwhelming when you consider the animations. BF4 is like the opposite of that.

The PS1 had a hardware reverb effect. Pressing pause would obviously halt sound playback, but the reverb effect was unaffected, giving it that echo. The same happens whenever reverb effects are generated using hardware or a dedicated sound engine that's unaffected by pausing.
In other words, it's not necessarily an intentional thing, but a side effect of hardware acceleration

funny thing is, this is much easier with tracker and midi music. Games did it decades ago. Then the shift to mp3/ogg/cdda happened and the feature disappeared.
An example from 1994 is the music in Magic Carpet, adding a sound layer whenever action happened.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3zsPl4Ampw
Another famous example is Deus Ex, which had action and idle tracks in a tracker format, and hence allowed a smooth transition between the two at any moment.

not even accidently. In Doom enemies would be implemented with intentional aggression, towards not just the player, but anybody that attacks them. It's not just possible but actually useful to position yourself between two enemies, dodge a shot, and then get out of the way as the two battle each other till death.

Neural networks are simply a learning mechanism. They do nothing on their own, they just help to come to "conclusions" for given inputs. These conclusions need to be mapped to "actions", things the characters actually end up doing. These actions are scripted.
Simple example: if an enemy detects gun shots, is not hit, can't figure the origin and has cover nearby, they will take cover. This "will take cover" is the scripted action. Figuring out that taking cover is the appropriate action, is the neural net. The gun shots and lack of detection are inputs to the neural net.
Also, the network needs initial training.

It's funny because from a programming viewpoint it can be simpler. Just mark anything that harms you as a danger, and you're done. Doesn't matter if that danger was the player or another character. Good AI puts the enemies into a position that's somewhat "equal" to the player, in that it is only aware of its immediate surroundings, has health, has weaponry (unlimited fireballs are a weapon). It's literally yet another player, just controlled by the computer.

>Useless animation buttons in roaming RPGs

Some games with a lot of walking have a useless button that does something. Like in Ar Tonelico, you have a jump button that you can spam as many times as you want. Ni no Kuni has a purchasable 'upgrade' that adds a useless jump button, which the game even tells you about. But I still bought that shit in a heartbeat. Or Transistor's flourish animation, although I would've appreciated more things to do while traveling in that game.

It does literally nothing for the gameplay, but it makes the tediousness of walking around bearable and even enjoyable. Something to do with my right hand while I'm just running around with my left thumb is always welcome.

The fire was incredible. Especially using it in a combat advantage so it forces the bad guys into the open. I still love everything about Far Cry 2...except most of the actual game. The setting, visuals, voices, gunplay, set pieces, story premise... so good. But as a game as a whole, just frustrating.

That "of course", that you take for granted, isn't necessarily. With more complex AI you can move opponent behavior closer to player-like behavior. That's why I mentioned the scripting. Even rather free-form AI currently has large scripted aspects, but it's retreating in the good ones

Hitman 2 was my favourite example of this
>>
>>277674586
Payday 2 was fucking great with that. Normal and Hard difficulties mostly have regular street cops and some SWATs, Very Hard and Overkill spawn different SWATs with body armor that actually stops bullets instead of just being there for a show and Deathwish makes most enemy spawns be elite mercenaries that are almost immune to crowd control, flinching, conversion etc. and replaces the regular tanky shotgun bulldozer enemy with a more powerful recolor that wields a light machine-gun. And while not strictly enemies, Deathwish also changes most safes into Titan safes that are only openable by drilling and Titan cameras that can't be destroyed.

Freespace was cool about it. You had optional objectives, and the battle would take place without you, eventually making some of these objectives impossible to meet. Also, the story would take different turns depending on how well you managed a task. It openly acknowledged the chance that you will fail a mission or objective.
