What makes high health good? Tell me.

86 replies 774 views Edited Mar 31, 2013

I like crushing better. It's faster to get kills and survive (if there's 3 enemies around you).  

 

In the normal health, it takes forever and half the gun's clip.

I prefer higher health, suits better players and gives you more time to survive and escape (One of uncharted's core concepts).

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

people with better accuracy and skill prefer it since it makes no big difference really if your aim is good enough.

 

Whereas with lower health, all it takes is shooting first or getting the jump on them to win, resulting in more people camping and waiting for others to come by as well as overall more hiding since people, with low health, will be less inclined to even going out on the map.

Exactly it tailors to my playstyle perfectly, Highly aggressive. Even if you're a player who takes things slow, you will have more time to react and will feel safer walking around.

Creates a lag cushion, you know all those times when lag has made you shot through the wall and you were grey health and it finished you off, with higher health that won't happen.

I wouldn't mind if the health was a little higher than it is now actually.  Also separate hitboxes would be nice.

Naughty Dog made a big mistake lowering the health in Uncharted 2, luckily they realised that and brought high health back in Uncharted 3, I shall explain:

 

Uncharted is an action/adventure series, it's not a shooter, in your average shooter you just shoot, kill, reload, repeat, but in Uncharted there is more, you can make BBQ's, stealth takedowns, pull downs, kick offs and traversal is an important aspect of the game, all these elements would be worthless with low health, traversal for instance, if you want to climb and are dead in a second of shooting then no one would climb and just stay on the ground, also with stealth kills, people would not risk a stealth kill if their opponent can just turn around and quickly kill you and you have no chanche to escape, also why would people bother trying to kill someone with a propane tank, they would be dead before they could even throw it...

 

That's why Smiley Happy

Longer gun fights = better acc wins

Get shot in back = turn around, out side step them and win
