Default parkour in video gaming

as you guys may see more and more games are starting to use parkour elements (under the wrong name of freerunning) games such as mega man legends which has been recently annoced to have it but while it may look like it can only help a game it can just as well mess them up any fan of mirrors edge that has played AC knows what i mean parkour is an art of movement that allows tracures(pratisipators of parkour) to navigate obsitcules easily and faster than most others games suchs as AC don't know what the true prupose so instead of climbing walls faster or even being able to move around an area better they have it more for show this in particular can make the use of it bad and more of a chore when needed making the game bad althought if done in a way similar to brink or mirrors edge it can make a game better and give diversity in ways to take down enemies and get around

but on to the question do you think parkour in gaming will end up making games better or worse(this is mostly for mega man legends) david i would be glad to hear your thoughts on this.
and please remember to stay civil.

This is what I think whenever I hear the word parkour.

anyway how will it affect these games megaman legends is one that is said to have parkour elements will it be good or will it end up like something you must use that annoys you as a tracure i don't think it will good mostly because they didn't even get the name right there are only 2 games that use parkour right one is mirrors edge the other is brink an fps that isn't out yet, AC is just climbing buildings when it comes to it i could be azio in a race because he slows when vaulting

Kind of sad that this thread has made it to page 2 with no mention of Brink... which is definitely one of the largest upcoming games with parkour.

Dude. By free running he didn't mean parkour, he meant free roaming. As in roaming around freely in a certain environment. *puts on Sherlock Holmes hat* Thus, I submit to you that your thread is not only incorrect but useless. Good day sir.

Mirror's Edge was fun, but wasnt worth a full retail price. Thats why I didnt buy it until it was $10 brand new. I thought it was fun to purposely jump off skyscrapers, but was sad when it didnt show her in a bloody heap and mess on the pavement.

Yeah, it's fun. Is just too short to be worth full retail though. I picked it up for $5 during a steam sale.

Mirror's edge was an awesome game.. the gameplay was fun but what I really loved was the art direction. It was pretty.

Oh, looks like you did. Sorry, your post was pretty hard to read and I guess I missed it.

And like, are you serious with that wanting a port of it? That's pretty much impossible. Unless you want a ****ty cash in game "port" ie: call of duty for ds

Yeah, it looked great. Wish they had done more ingame cutscenes instead of that comic book stuff.

About parkour Not turning around for walls, WTF?
If there was a seventy foot wall you would just go around it right?

There is no need for 8GB on a handheld. Period. If a game took that much space, then something is wrong with that developer.

...

If the 3DS carts can hold 8gb, then yes, it could hold a 360/PS3/PC version of Brink, but there's no way it could run it. There's simply no way the hardware on the 3DS could play it. And then of course controls and screen res would also be a problem. And since it couldn't run a port of the standard console/pc version, if the 3DS was to get anything, it'd get a ****ty port developed by some random dev, since Splash Damage definitely isn't developing a specific 3DS version alongside the normal one.

as a long time fan of megaman legends, I find this entire thread offensive.

I also highly doubt ace has ever played a megaman legends game. if he has he would know that doing parkour is the last thing Trigger would do(specially in the moon).

anyway theres bonds to be more games with parkour prince of persia and mirrors edge are games that do(prince only uses wall running thought but still) so can we debate on parkour in gaming is going to be good or will it become the next chore ability like boss takedowns(gow and mortal combat sholin monks.)
