My ideal next inFAMOUS game - part 1 - the ground rules

  • Ok first of all, if I'm putting this in the wrong section or anything, please do tell me. Now thats out the way, on with my writing.

    SS came out in 2014, and we still haven't had an announcment about a new inFAMOUS. Well I'm done slamming my ears in the oven doors in annoyance over this, so I'm going to say what I think the next inFAMOUS game should be. Now, there are a lot of things I have to say about this, so I'm going to make several discussions on this, this is part 1, the ground rules. All this section is, is me explain the basis of the game. I will cover subjects like world, powers and story later, I'm just going to say things like tone and whether it will be a SS sequel. Ok, lets start the list, here we go, (oh and suprisingly enough this is my opinion, if you disagree then fine, tell me in the discussion, but no negativity please). Oh yeah, just to mention, this will be a long bit of writing.

    The ground rules:

    .I know that the first thing on peoples mind will be, "SS sequel, original inFAMOUS sequel or brand new story?" well my answer is SS sequel AND brand new. Before anyone gets irritated, I don't want a SS sequel, but I think it's the most likely thing that SP will do, however I do want a brand new inFAMOUS, with a new story, new character and new powers. So what do I do? Well, I'm going to do both, first off, I will talk about a SS sequel, and after, I will talk about a brand new branch in the franchise. And before I get off this subject, I will explain why I don't want a sequel to the first and second inFAMOUS in a later section.

    .My inFAMOUS would be dark, dark, dark. Sorry SS, but your tone was pretty pathetic, and the tone for inFAMOUS 1 was fantastic. So, it will be darker, with a darker story, less cheesy chacters, a dark world, darker quests and darker everything. For the SS sequel, it won't be quite as dark as inFAMOUS 1, but still very dark. The brand new game will be as dark as the first though.

    .Ok, I'm going to say this once, COLE! WILL! NOT! COME! BACK! Sorry to sound aggresive but everytime I here people say (please read in 8 year old voice)"I want Cole back, the BEAST didn't really kill him, maybe the lightning bolt at the end of 2 ressurected him!", why, because it's stupid. I've whined about Cole in the 'next inFAMOUS in 2017' discussion, so if you want to know why this is stupid, read that.

    Ground rules exclusevly for SS sequel:

    .I think alot of things in SS was stupid. I just do. From some of the characters to the lore I really do not like it. But what annoys me the most is easily how some of it doesn't even make sense. So, (beware I'm about to make you salty), I will be re-writing SOME - not all - of the stuff in SS so it makes sense, and so Eugene isn't an offensive stereotype.

    .I know that SS was planned to have powers like glass and wire, and that eluded powers like paper. So, will they be in my inFAMOUS, HECK NO. I want to distance the game from SS stupidity, and I'm sorry but those powers are pretty stupid. Put it this, if all the inFAMOUS conduits went to have a drink this would happen. "I control electricity!" "Cool!" "I absorb peoples powers!" "AWESOME" "I can turn into a freakin BEAST and destroy citys!" "UNBELIEVABLE!" "I make paper areoplanes!" "..." My point has been made.

    . For those who botherd with Paper Trail, you may have realised there were a bunch of manga comics in it. Now, as someone who doesn't really like manga I didn't bother reading them. However, a guy on Youtube read them and deciphered what they mean. If you want to see the video, it's called 'inFAMOUS: the next chapter', but if you don't want to watch it, what the guy finds out is that Celia from PT, was an agent for Augastine, and now that she is dead, she will become the new leader of the DUP and instead of capturing conduits, she wants them to openly fight the millitary. Will I use this? Yes, but not to an extent.

    Ok, I think I've said everything, and I've written for a long time. If I missed out anything, I will leave it in the discussion. Anyway, please discuss what you think, what your ground rules would be, and whether you liked my ideas. My next part will be on the SS sequel, and how the world in it works. Thanks for reading.

      No one wants to say it but it has to be done.

    • OK I have remembered what I forgot to add. I have 4 other rules, but 2 I'll put in the same explination.

      .This is just personal preference but I'd like some character who for once aren't in the age bracket of 18-30. SS 4 main characters who weren't villians were all super young, and same with inFAMOUS 2. I'd like to see what inFAMOUS would be like without all characters being 20 year olds, not doing things stereotypical teens and young adults (graphitii, drugs, gaming).

      .inFAMOUS has always been 2 things. A superhero franchise, and a power fantasy. However every single one of the games (even number 1) has had some of these aspects taken away, well mine wouldn't. I always got so annoyed in the first 2 games at how you were such a power house, a being that in the lore that could probably survive being hit square in the chest with an RPG, but a couple of hits and you would die just like that. I hated in inFAMOUS 2 how you could shoot a bolt of electricity at a millitia members head, and he'd shrug it off. Well in this you would be a true super-human. You would be able to wipe out dozens of soldiers, take bullets like light punches. "But that would make it to easy!" I hear people shout. No it wouldn't. 2 things fix that. 1, it would be a power fantasy where you work for your power. You'd start off weak, weaker than you were at the start of all the games, (don't ask how, I'll get to that when I talk about the story), and work your way up, become more powerful so by the end, you are OP. It would be progressive.2, what I ment to say was you'd be OP against humans. In this, there would be a lot more conduit enemys, and not just pathetic lesser conduits like the DUP, real conduits, who can take as many bullets as you. Not only that, but some humans may have, certain weapons, that may have effects on conduits.

      .Ok finally, who loved parkour in inFAMOUS 1 and 2, because I did. Then SS came along, and the dashes made it so parkour was useless. Parkour has always been in the games and I want it to stay that way, but I like the dashes in SS, so what do I do. Simple, as I said before, this would be a progressive game.Your dashes would start off weak. The smoke dash would be shorter range, take a while for you to do. You wouldn't even be able to use vents. Neon would only be slightly faster than your normal speed. You'd have to use parkour. There might even be levels where it's required. However, when your fully powered, the game would be different. You wouldn't be able to do the dashes. They'd be gone, deleted. Why am I doing this? Simple, they would be replaced with full on movement abilities. Remember chases after Hank in SS, remember his smoke dash, you be able to do that. You thought neon was fast in SS, think again. There would be a reason for you to have wings in the video dash. Certain new powers may even make it so you can teleport. Now that, I think, is cool.

    • Okay if you're serious about this then I would love a brand new story that isn't a sequel to Second Son. Now the main character would be a Conduit of 14 years old with the power of shockwaves. Now why i would like this power is not only because you can do some serious damage to your opponents and also the envrionment around you, but this is a power that you need to be up close for and be a living generator of that power and not a battery. It would be either a male or a female, I haven't decided yet. 

      Now the story would start ten months after Second Son and the imprisoned Conduits break out, but one with animal traits hears the military is about to bomb Curdan Cay. The shockwave conduit, who I am naming Sam Clarkson, shoots down the door with a shockwave blast from his arms. The military doesn't drop the bomb immediately but after seeing their comrades taken down by the conduits even the ones that hate them, they do so. The bomb is about 5 times as powerful as an Atom bomb and it incinerates most of the Conduits whereas the ones far away get impacted by the shockwave and radiation. But instead of making them sick, it upgrades their conduits physicality to Superhumans levels. The conduits then make a plan to get the military out of the picture and learn about Celia and her new D.U.P who are rallying to destroy the military and have Conduits live normal free lives away from the ones who hate Conduits, even if it means having to take out the citizens who side with the military. An all-out war begins and Sam has to make a choice of either siding with the D.U.P, staying out of it and attacking both sides to be alone, or siding with the military and be their big gun against the D.U.P.

      This is just what I would want to see if a new game is made and ends the series on a high note. And i mean the entire series not Delsin's story.

      Hey you have some nice ideas, thanks for sharing. It's good for us in the community to share our ideas while we wait for the real next inFAMOUS.

      Uh, Jimmy. The guy did reply to my post, so he was just waiting for someone to make a reply to his rules.

      No, I do not talk to myself (online), the person who wrote this is a different person. Why would I even do that?
