While I don't agree that a Back to the Future game would be terribly exciting (it just wouldn't adapt well to a video game, IMO), a game where they used a similar technique to implement time travel would be freaking sweet. The recent Prince of Persia games did this on a small scale with success.

Imagine Portal, but with time travel. You have a puzzle where you have two buttons in a room that have to be pressed simultaneously to unlock a door, but you can't reach them both. You press the first button and use your time travel gun to travel back in time 15 seconds, watch yourself press the first button, press the second button, and then step through the door. How cool would that be?

the new Ratchet and Clank has a puzzle mechanic like that... very interesting IMHO

that said, i really like shooters, and would love for crap like this to be implemented well... i.e. shoot a portal into the ceiling and lob a grenade through it, or shoot a time portal into some door, and watch an enemy step into it only to be eaten by a t-rex...

all too often interesting gameplay focuses solely on puzzles, when it could be used to great effect in violent mayhem as well

I hate to do it, but lets see World of Warcraft. I remember adding all my charters times up at the end of Burning Crusade and had around 350 days played time across my account. I'm guessing between 04 and beginning of 08.

F that game

I tried this out a few days ago actually, and it's a pain in the ass to play it.

You have to install and run the crysis editor and place his files into a map of your choice and then run the game editors game preview so you can play it... unless you save/compile the map again.

It wasn't really worth the time to try it, youtube video is good enough.

I liked Bioshock throughout... it's not like it was a terribly long game. The GTA games have definitely become quiet monotonous. I remember playing the shit out of GTA3 and VC (this one moreso), but with SA and GTA4 the game play is pretty worn out...
