View Full Version : ┐Cool levels?

Well, first I want to say that this is just an opinion ;)

These last few days, playing LBP, I saw something I did not like much; As sometimes I don't know what play, I always go to the section "cool levels", and... I'm kind of tired of just seeing "bomb, shark, zombie survivals" "Super Cool level" "Modern Warfare" "Free costumes" etc, and... those levels, with all due respect, are not very good :frightened: But! OMG more than 2K plays (WHAT!?)

Now, I have seen many very very good levels, sadly not reach 100 plays ( Like the Blade Runner movie of wolfy_616 :( )

What's going on? apparently, for a level will be a "cool level" just:
-Write "Zombie" in the Name of the level
-Put an Assasins Creed Badge
-Spend less than 30 minutes creating the level

Only 15% of the levels in "cool levels" are quality levels
That is sad...

What do you think?

This has been discussed many times on the PS3 platform.

First and foremost, consider the demographics of the ages that play this game. When you start to realize that there are more younger kids playing this than us more serious about all the cool things that can be done with this game, it won't seem so confusing.

My girlfriend has a 6 year old grandson that currently thinks the best freaking level ever has a badly made character that somewhat looks like SpongeBob with a scoreboard somewhere nearby with a ton of bubbles in between.

That is why this site and sites like this are so important to more serious creators and those that love to play polished and skilled creations. The level showcase as well as the LBPC Community Spotlights are the things you should pay more attention to. Another great tool is LBP.me where you can keep track of what your hearted creators are playing and publishing.

More than enough stuff to keep you from visiting the page denoted as cool, but really isn't. ;)

You're right jww, I forgot that there are children who also play (and share) in LBP, and what for them is "Cool" and for others it is "Cool", are two very different things :p

If you're just looking for a lot of plays you can also create "The Ultimate Justin Bieber Bomb Survival Challenge," in which Justin's head floats around shooting/dropping out bombs from his mouth and then have Selena Gomez pop in and shoot out "love rays" from her eyes.
I thought about doing it but.... my reputation... so not worth it even as a gag level.

Since this has been discussed numerous times and usually goes bad quickily, I'm going to go ahead and lock this.
