Where are all the gibs these days? Ragdoll physics are nice, but I could use with some gibs every now and again. Any recent games with gibs? I think the last was like the original Half Life or something.. heh.

EDIT:
Now that I think about it.. the FEAR beta may of had gib's... I'm gonna have to inspect it more :D But, other than that, any other games in recent memory?

Nope... really saddens me. Fortress Forever won't be anywhere near as sweet as TFC since sniping people with the charged sniper rifle won't make them explode and only leave guts and a skull :(.

I don't see why they can't have both somehow... I wish they would :(.

fear has them, i think. or would that be dismemberment. quake4 might, considering gibs were a big part of quake i dont see how they would leave them out.

I may have missed this one but what is Gibs?

Edit- I take it that you mean body parts, never heard that term before.

Have you ever looked at the "giblets" inside of a holiday turkey?

The meaning of the word gibs is taken from giblets, or little pieces of flesh.

perhaps this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibs) will help you.

Wow those Quake 4 shots look like ass :p

And yeah, I miss the gibs too. UT2004 has them, but other than that, I havent seen a game that gibbed in a while.

BF2 with gibs would be pretty cool :D

Oh dear me you reminded me of TFC, I just turned up the gibcount as high as possibe and you'd just see hundreds of gibs flying everywhere. not to mention it would be funny when as sniper took down some guy :D
I'm a fan of gibs, but I really like ragdolls too. In games like cs:s gibs would be just silly and ragdolls provide enough humour to make me forget. Now a mixture is probably even better, fear does a mixture but I don't think it does either that well. Certainly would depend on the game style.

Not a big fan of gibs... I like the realistic dismemberment better.

Serious sam has the best gibs and if you disagree well then you flat out hate America.



(yes I know the game was made in Croatia)

Yeah...

I flat out hate America then... I love those Croatians though...

(Serious Sam was not created by an American.)

Ragdoll with detachable limbs.. feels like we need a new SoF for that hehe.
