    IMO, if you do FPS RPG, try to draw from reality:

    - At point blank ranges (as in, literal gun barrel against the enemy's head), a character with shitty Guns skill is as lethal as a character with a high Guns skill.
    - At longer ranges, make a high Guns skill affect stuff such as
    • Reduced spread.
    • Optionally (controversial): lock-on, much like you see in console games vs PC games.
    Then you have the usual stuff: have skills affect reload speed and chance to successfully reload, recoil animations...
    But I think this will never be done effectively because you are effectively trying to cater to two (or three) markets at a time: the FPS crazed people who want their skills to show through, the hardcore RPG crowd that wants skills to make the difference (over their twitch skills), and those who want a balance of both (which is THE HARDEST thing to do).

    When you go full hardcore RPG, "Action" combat in a game like New Vegas or CP2077 is just an excuse to present things in first person, which is why you never see this happen.

    It did, some of them even had cool little C&C. For example, a Temerian soldier is abandoned and tied on the road for deserting. If Geralt walks away, he dies. However, if Geralt helps him, he will encounter this NPC later and discover he's joined a roaming brigand group who've just finished killing innocent people. Once again, you can choose to accept your "friends" reward or kill him and his group to make up for your earlier mistake. Not all of them are like this, of course. But they're nice little encapsulations of the core Witcher themes IMO.

    almost every single big studio does crunch time but because poles do it, we must bring it to attention now. But please don't ever dare to notice it when it comes to US based devs.

    The truth is simple, sometime it can't be avoided and while there may be a discussion to have in the corporate space most Developers just want to finish that thing or are forced to hammer away before the funds run out.

    I have been there and while the situation forced the crunch, I never felt forced because I wanted the shit done i had worked hard for.

    I was going to say something in the same lines. When the game is done and out, and it's talked about 5+ years after release as one of the best RPGs ever, as is the case with Witcher 3, everyone who worked on the project will feel pride. The crunch time is something that you go through once, but you get to say you worked on that game throughout the rest of your life.

    Western journos use CDPR to larp critical journalism and liberal conscience because they can't do that to US corps who will write them out of their freebies list and cut ad budget of their games on their websites. This is leverage CDPR doesn't have, hence they use instances of CDPR's crunching to pretend they have any balls at all.

    Yeh, i wonder when these degenerates will realize that unlike manufactury workers, who get abused cause they can't do better, game developers are capable of finding another job that does not treat them as crunchy dogshit easily.
    I am victim blaming (cause apparently these people can't say no for some reason), but passionate developer can easily requalify into software developer, if he does not want to code physics of horse's nutsack for 70 hours a week.

    So no source. :P

    Edit: LOL, the embargo has just lifted and the net is flooded with reviews. What were you saying again with no review codes?

    And let's not even talk about indies, who work 8-10 hours on their fulltime job, then go home and work on their passion project each day. Nobody cries for them.

    It worst part for me is not how he kept shooting the guy that was scripted to die later but how much the game felt lacking in the sound department in that moment.
    I didn't get that from the indoor parts, but the moments when you are in a car and shooting it feels like the game is missing 80% of the sound effects.
