    Best death scene in a video game EVER

    Not cool with OPs spoiler, that shit ruins lives. Anyways, my favorite death scene is the end of Snake Eater, I mean, its not a creative death, but no other death is that memorable.

    To those with experience programming...

    I dont know much about C#, I will look into that. Is it easier than C++?

    Your right, it would be. The shooting in Metroid is pretty good, I will just have to design the game around the player having limited directions in which to shoot.

    To those with experience programming...

    Well I'm comparing it to Castlevania in terms of graphical style, but as far as gameplay goes its a tad different (guns, a lasso that grabs enemies) so just using a keyboard can be a bit restrictive, but I suppose if Contra can do it so can I.

    Poll: Photorealism in Games: Doing it wrong?
