I've been following this thread with some interest. It's really enlightened me in terms of user input.

Also, what ought I to have played that I haven't feel-wise?
If you haven't played any of the "VR" games with the massive goggles etc, then you'll have missed out on a kind of bizarre input experiment.
Personally, I've only use one of those machines (back when they were kind of new and exciting in the main stream). And I gotta say it had the worst feel ever. I just couldn't get into it at all.
I should probably blame that on the technology of the time though... I mean, the Wii controller is far more responsive and nowhere near as bulky and those "gloves"/paddles...

Anyway, just thought I'd mention that since it really was a foray into a new and unknown "feel" of user input.

Gah! Steve, you are my brain-twin or something.

I really want to get my feedback done, but I'm getting busy working on our game demo, and preparing for a trip to america.

I want to talk to you about "edge mechanics" and "edge metaphor": when do you use discrete vs. continuous? I want to talk about Quake 3's movement (friction based) vs. Unreal Tournament's (speed capping). I want to talk about finite state machine animation systems vs. indiscrete physics based approachs vs. hybrids. I'm just so busy!

Don't sweat it, Willy. Where in America are you tripping to? If it's nearby Phoenix, we should hang loose.

It's just like a 4 or 5 hour flight from NC to Phoenix. You should drop by for a while Smiley.

Just a picky note: the word "Deconstruction" probably isn't the one you mean to use, unless you actually do want to bring a wanktastic theory of literary criticism in to your analysis of video games?
