people take things way too seriously on this website

I am honestly amazed with some responses..

That's what happens when you're an adult.

Somehow, I doubt that's the issue.

No. Having to stop playing because I'm scouring the level for health packs is not fun and totally interrupts the flow of the game. Also, I fail to see how a ****ing hot dog is going to get rid of a bullet wound. That seems equally unrealistic.

Plug the hole with the hot dog. Boom, problem solved.

I just want that awful effect of your character going blind because he has jelly on his face and needs time to take it off.

one time I broke my leg but it was no big deal because I found a taco

This made me laugh hard enough to have tears in my eyes. Then again, it is just past 1am.

I do kind of miss breaking garbage cans and finding turkeys underneath that my guy can gobble up and get full health. Be damned with unsanitary conditions and all that.

I like the health regeneration, I just wish they found new ways to have a minimalist UI.

The first game I played with health regen was The Getaway, and I remember it was a hot topic then, too. I think Far Cry 3 and Tomb Raider strike a nice balance between immersion and gameplay flow. Even Max Payne 3, where the pills had an animation. It made for cool slow-mo sections.

Congratulations TC. You caught many in your trap.

It's not realistic to recover from near death simply by resting behind a wall for 15 seconds. We need to bring back the food system from the late 80's/early 90's.

Small items, such as a dumpling, would offer a small amount of health recovery. Intermediate would be a hamburger or hot dog. Maximum health would be recovered from a whole roast chicken. The food items would be left on the ground at random parts of levels. Also, sometimes you will need to smash a wooden crate with a pipe to get to the chicken drumstick inside.

I think this system could be seamlessly integrated into most modern games.
What do you think?

So let me get this straight is realistic for me to be carrying a smörgåsbord of food...stand up get shot to behind cover, eat a roasted chicken...stand up get shot again, duck down behind more cover and eat another roasted chicken that makes me magically gain health?

Thank god you are not a game designer TC.
Now don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright, but that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night...

I hope none of these games take place in a third world country, the main character would be screwed, there's no way in hell you're gonna find a thanksgiving dinner just lying around there.

unless it triggers a mini-game where you have to fight a wild dog for half a rotten pigeon, that could be fun

Personally, this is why I like hardcore for multiplayer...the health doesn't regenerate (unless you are medically attended too). ...I wouldn't mind if it was like that for the hard modes of games as well.
