Are you growing weary of ice worlds, lava levels, water dungeons, etc. [roundtable]
 
Now, I understand why game designers utilize these tried and true settings: They're what we've got in the planet Earth of ours. But it gets a little tiring knowing that every Mario game, every Metroid game, every Sonic game from here until eternity will have this stuff.

I haven't really formulated full thoughts on this but that shouldn't stop me from posting and see what other people say to get things started.

@GameDadGrant Well I've known you to be a raging fanboy for certain titles so I won't bother arguing. I didn't like it. ;P

@GameDadGrant

If I could take every copy of Phantom Hourglass down with me, I would do it too.

No one who hasn't played To The Moon has any right to judge me!

Shadowlink's to-do list:

- Play 'To The Moon'
- Judge Xbob.

That should be everyone's to-do list!

Final Fantasy III(US) is a different animal though.

The game came out years and yeeears ago and people still love it beyond whoknowswhat. As big as Skyrim is "right now," I don't think people will be talking about that in 15 years.

FF3 is so freaking amazing I can't stand it. It's one of the best things man has ever made. Step aside, automobile! Your overrated days in the spotlight are coming to a close.

The only problem with FF3 is that it kinda spoiled most other games in the genre (and ESPECIALLY the series) for me. They just can't step up.

Having just downloaded NSMB2 on 3DS after recently beating NSMBU, this feeling of weariness really hit me. Another sand world as the second world? Thay same tired music? Ad nauseum, really.

I'd like to see Mario in a completely different setting next time out. Dinosaur Land from SMW is not nearly different enough. Something crazy. It's not like Mario's mechanics wouldnt be just as fun somewhere completely foreign and un-Mushroom Kingdom-like

Unless a game designer can come up with more logical and treacherous game worlds (in their own way unique to the game world they've created), no. I mean, gravity has been tinkered with too, but it can still be immensely amusing. What would ice fire do? I mean, Spongebob Squarepants touches on everything being possible under water, but what would it ACTUALLY look like? Spongebob Squarepants is extremely existential in myriad ways, but it would take a poet to actually interpret what's taking place in their underwater realm. Such eloquence is probably beyond the scope of a video game designer, but I'd LOVE to be proven wrong.

@jonjon85 But Spirit Tracks is like an even better Phantom Hourglass. The dungeons were amazing!

@Zero

Truth.

The only sour part of Spirit Tracks was the pan-flute.

And Phantom Hourglass sucked. It had mediocre puzzles, boring items and a meager overworld.
