Prince of Persia was awesome when I first saw it. I later saw a screenshot for a game that looked similar. Without researching it at all, I saw it in store and bought it for $70. Flashback exceeded any hopes I even had for it.
Don't lie to someone who trusts you. Don't trust someone who lies to you.
My all time favorite series of video games. There literally isn't a thing in the world I wouldn't do for a good PC port of these games (with controller support of course).
Y'know most games aren't as good as nostalgia makes you believe. Sure I loved them, but would I want to play them again and say they're better than most games? Probably not
I rebuy a PS2 and all 3 games at least once a year and play them all. Done so for about 3 or 4 years now. Years after playing each game on release date. I still love the games and they are better than the majority of the crap released today.
Don't tell me how I should feel about my favorite series.
Have a look at Overgrowth if you want to see some procedural animation (dynamically adjusting based on situation/distance etc.) Assassin's Creed also does a bit of this, especially noticeable when the horse's hooves will always try to contact the ground, regardless of the surface. The simplest variation of this is probably something like HL2, where feet will try to hit steps, rather than treating it like a ramp.
Sui Generis has completely done away with traditional animation, instead using a dynamic physics model to provide movement. They look a bit drunk, but it's neat nonetheless.
