Never heard of it, but if I want to think I will just play System Shock 2, Thief 1/2 or Neverwinter Nights 2.

NarcissistZero, Prototype has shown nothing other then him killing people... seriously... every video and every shot has been nothing but combat...

EDIT:

Just to add Infamous is being developed by a Developer with a solid backing who has shown that they can produce quality titles... Prototype is being developed by the developer of Scarface and the Bevis and Butthead games...

Yes, and the combat looks a billion times better than the combat in the Infamous videos.

I'm all for good storytelling in games... I often praise games with great stories and feel a good story, good atmosphere and good art design can elevate a good game to an amazing game. One of the reasons Grand Theft Auto IV is better than Saint's Row 2, for me, is how amazing it's story and world are (heh).

That said, gameplay is king, and at this point Prototype rules the roost for now. There is simply no contest, comparing the videos, on which game looks more fun and more exciting. I'm far from alone on this, since Prototype is on many lists as a great thing to come in '09, whereas Infamous is not.

Still, who knows right now? Neither is out. I'll probably end up owning both, so I can have a more informed opinion then.

Man, after GTA4 and SR2 my optimism about this open city game is very very low.

Because it is a game that hasn't been in the spot light really. There are far less articles or news on inFamous then there are on Prototype. Heck, I don't even think inFamous has a release time yet. We have seen alot less of inFamous then we have of Prototype.

And also InFamous is a PS3 only title while Prototype is multiplatform... which helps it on the "charts". Then again, that doesn't say much... we have seen many titles be put on must watch lists just to flop.

well ... thinking about it.... activision does have a history of botching the execution of great concepts..... I am yet to like any of their SpiderMan attempts...... but any how.... I can feel it in my 24 year old gamer bones that activision might just come good with prototype.... They are due a good one and some things are just hard to botch..... History backs infamous but i think ill go ahead and back prototype on being the showstopper this summer.....

Scarface was a good game, just poorly managed once Vista came out. Yes, it was a GTA clone... but a very decent job of it.

However I just recieved the following press release from Activision:

Activision sends over the fact sheet and some media (still download the media).

An all-new, third-person open-world/action game, PROTOTYPE™ lets gamers feel the power of being the ultimate shape-shifting weapon. You are the PROTOTYPE: Alex Mercer – a genetically mutated man without memory, armed with amazing shape-shifting abilities, hunting your way to discover what created you and determined to make those responsible pay. As Alex, gamers will tear through a densely populated contemporary New York City with Parkour-style agility, consuming anybody that gets in his way…assuming their physical identity, memories and abilities. Fueled by three key factions consisting of Alex, the Blackwatch (military) and a viral outbreak known as the Infected, players will venture into a deep, dark conspiracy 40 years in the making!

KEY FEATURES:
DEADLY SHAPE-SHIFTING ACTION – Alex Mercer is a shape-shifter with amazing powers of combat, destruction and deception. As Alex, gamers can consume and absorb any living person they come into contact with while moving through PROTOTYPE’s New York City backdrop, and as such, he can gain access to their memories, assume their physical identity and use any special abilities/powers they had, each time bringing him closer to solving the growing conspiracy behind his existence. Further, Alex can mix and match genetic traits to create incredibly deadly biological weapons, including razor sharp claws, blades, armored skin, shields and more. Used correctly, Alex Mercer – the PROTOTYPE – is the ultimate shape-shifting weapon.

UNPRECEDENTED LOCOMOTION AND AGILITY – Alex Mercer’s movement in PROTOTYPE is based on the art of ‘Parkour’ – a French term meaning to move from one point to another as quickly as possible principally using the abilities of the human body. Being more than human, nothing in PROTOTYPE’s bustling New York City setting is an obstacle for Alex. Players will vault over hundreds of cars, run vertically up the sides of skyscrapers, scale huge distances in single jumps and more.

‘DECEIVE AND DESTROY’ GAMEPLAY – PROTOTYPE’s ‘Deceive and Destroy’ gameplay allows players the opportunity to blend in with the crowded population and covertly progress through the story, or fully unleash Alex’s powers, moving through New York City as a walking slaughterhouse – shape-shifting and consuming enemies in plain sight on the street, commandeering military vehicles, including Apache helicopters and Abrams tanks and causing destruction at every turn.

NEW YORK CITY IS YOUR HUNTING GROUND – PROTOTYPE’s playground is contemporary New York City done right! The city is jam-packed with thousands of pedestrians, hundreds of cars and is truly a bustling, thriving representation of the world’s most famous city. The population is extremely dense, providing for an endless feast of gameplay possibilities, so when things start to explode, players really get the feeling that the city is caving in around them. Furthermore, in reference to some of PROTOTYPE’s boss battles…there’s definitely a need for a setting as big as Manhattan.

A, NEW, ORIGINAL EXPERIENCE FOR GAMERS – PROTOTYPE is an original intellectual property created internally at Radical Entertainment featuring Alex Mercer – an all-new anti-hero framed within a conspiracy-drenched plot that provides gamers a fresh storyline and experience to play through. With no memory of his past, Alex Mercer’s sole mission is to find out who’s responsible for what’s happened to him…and make them pay. As players evolve Alex and his shape-shifting abilities throughout the story, they’ll incrementally learn more and more about his tortured past while combating the lethal Blackwatch Military Special Forces and a virally mutated enemy faction known as the Infected. Gamers will also delve into the deep, dark back-story mechanic known as the ‘Web of Intrigue’ and witness a conspiracy 40 years in the making spiral out of control… revealing Alex Mercer’s past and defining his future.

DEVELOPER PEDIGREE – Radical Entertainment is the developer behind PROTOTYPE and touts a wide catalog of successful titles, including the highly acclaimed The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, Simpsons Hit & Run and Scarface: The World is Yours. PROTOTYPE is powered by Radical Entertainments all-new proprietary Titanium game engine, sporting mind-blowing gameplay with explosive on-screen action, and is one of the first games ever to support Neural 7.1 Surround™ Sound certified by THX for audio and video quality.
