What do you think is the most innovative game on the market, or in the works. What games set themselves apart from others and what games do so in an EFFECTIVE way?
Don't just name a game, please explain your reasons.
In my own personal opinion, I would have to say Breakdown for the XBOX. It sets itself apart from other first person games by being truely 1st person. You see the body parts and the head moves. Not to mention it's half a fighting game. The fighting system is also pretty good once you get used to it. Another thing that sets the game apart is the story, a sci-fi thriller mixed with an action shooter/fighter in 1st person. The only problem with the game... it was too much innovation for one game to handle. Certain aspects such as the shooting gameplay, physics, etc suffered and the innovations were not refined by the developers. I just hope to see a sequal in the future with some more evolved aspects; and if you've seen the alternate ending, they set it up for a sequal.
