As much as I follow any other game, I have been following Brink. It’s not exactly my style of game but the details are incredible.
The Container City is a complete dream for me and if there is a proper SP version then I may even buy it just for that, once it comes down in price of course!
Anyway, one feature they seem particularly keen on is the ability to customize your character and that got me wondering whether Half-Life would ahve benefited from a simple system where players could choose the visual appearance of Gordon Freeman or even change his name etc. Yes, that would have been more work for Valve and made life difficult for the voice actors but it was possible back then.
You could change your character in Star Trek Elite Force to either male or female.
Personally, I don’t think it would have been a good thing, Gordon is central to the theme of the game and changing him would have spoilt that. I don’t doubt that some readers would have wished for more control over him I believe it would have been wrong.
What do you think?
