Hello again G-Fans! I've had this idea rolling around in my end for the past 15 minutes and I wanted to share. I was listening to Deliverance in the God of War (2018) soundtrack (very good piece) and it started to take shape haha. The latest Godzilla game on PS3/PS4 was a bust. A straight punch to the gut for us G-Fans. However, I liked some of the ideas they put to mind and I'd like to improve/reinterpret them.
Remember the "Go ashore" game mode? It was the base adventure mode with different paths. Cool at first, but extremely repetitive. Here's my reinterpretation: Change it into a playground style mode. Set right in Godzilla's hometown. Let me help you visualize. You start the game mode and it starts a little cutscene with the shoreline in view. Big G himself rises from the water and this small tune (Starts at 2:01) plays out:
However, the purpose of this game mode is not just to roam and destroy stuff freely. Its also to test your progress and newfound abilities, which leads into the other mode, Evolution, which was also a game mode in the PS4 game. In this mode you would give Godzilla new abilities to use in Go Ashore, however, you had to start a new game to apply them. Now that we changed the Go Ashore game mode, Evolution is now freely accepted. Going back to the cutscene, it will change based on your physical appearance. So now you can watch Big G rise out of the water and onto the shores of Japan with the physical changes you applied. You can devastate all of your surrounding and reset the map with the click of a button. Oh! In Evolution, you have presets. It would be pretty OP to let Godzilla have a buttload of abilities at once. So you can have a select few at a time and save the preset. Then proceed to test the preset on Go Ashore. Like a Create a Class.
Most of us loved how the Pipeworks Godzilla games played out. It was accessible and fun, especially with friends. Godzilla PS4 was a bit heavier, had some pretty average combat but was pretty slow and boring. Lets try and combine the two. For this game however, lets keep the tankier movement but with the access to speed that Destroy all Monsters gave us. Remember that sweet second trailer for KOTM? Where Godzilla picked up speed towards Ghidorah? Lets use that. Lets give Godzilla the ability to keep momentum but still feel realistically heavy. You can use this to chain into a tackle to shove them away with damage, or a grab to throw them with a ton of power.
Lets also tackle the use of his iconic Atomic Breath. In past games it would kind of lock on to the nearest enemy and you would hope it would land a good hit. Instead lets give the player the proper ability to aim. I didnt cover this earlier but lets keep the game Third-Person, Godzilla's back towards the camera but still able to turn towards it. When using your atomic breath the camera will zoom over the shoulder so you can pinpoint your target and fire at will, making it much more satisfying to hit your mark.
Finally, the real mode, the Adventure. Starting off the only playable character is Godzilla himself but with a twist. We will give the player the ability to change their skin based on the era they love most. You love the OG '54 Goji? Select it. You love Legendary Goji? Select it. This isn't the twist :) Based on the skin you choose, the Adventure mode changes. You picked '54 Goji? Black & White Adventure. You picked Legendary Godzilla? Your route is based on the 2014 movie, the 2019 film, and Vs Kong.
For now that's all I got. I will most likely make a different article, or add onto this one if I have more to add. Please add some opinions/criticisms or ideas below! Would love to hear what others have in mind!
Great Idea thanks for sharing this would be better gameplay than ps3 and Ps4 Game
Love it, you should send the idea to one of the game creators out there. NOT NINTENDO PLEASE!!!
Also, will other Kaiju be playable? It'd be boring for me to just keep playing as Godzilla over and over again, even with the different skins. I want to adventure as some of the other classic Kaiju, like Mothra, Anguirus, King Ghidorah, and Rodan, maybe even others.
