I really enjoyed Descent 1 and 2 and other 6DOF shooters I dont remeber the names of,
they used to be fairly popular, but these days not so much.

I've seen there was a new one that got greenlit recently, 'miner wars'? or something like that, it didn't really seem to capture what I loved about 6DOF so i ignored that.

Are there people out there who still rike 6DOFs?

Yeah 6dof is on my list of remake to learn game programming, in hope it is more simple than a sonic 3D Huh?

Unfortunately it's too disorienting for your average player who can barely handle a regular FPS, so they don't even get made as indie titles.

I still really like them and hope someone makes a good follow-up to Descent someday.

I know some guy on here was working on something similar, but it was more like a grindy, stat-building Diablo-ized version of the game.

Yeah, that's what Miner Wars looked like too,
They totally missed the point of 6DOF, if it doesn't give weak people motion sickness, you're doing it wrong!

I just came to the realization that Descent was the first First-Person game I ever played or even saw. Waaagh!

(...That's a yes)

Gotta be honest here, before I looked it up, I thought 6DOF was the name of a series, short for something like "6 Days of Fighting".

Can't say I've played many 6DOF games.

I personally think that 6 Degrees of Freedom is a very underused feature/mechanic in games nowadays

If I ever make a FPS, it'd be 6DOF, mostly because making a regular FPS these days is just boring.

Too bad I'm terrible at anything 3D .. Shrug

Game nowaday are barely even 3D, they are at worst corridor at best open heightfield, zelda snes was an heightfield before "3D" was a thing Huh?
