Wouldn't it be awesome if the screen blurred for a moment if someone did a significant power-up?

like when goku comes out the time-chamber & power-ups @ korin's tower.

the other feel it & the ground shook for a while.

like this? :O

Well what you are saying is considered as physx. Although it can be done but it takes so much of the CPU power which means that you will need a High end CPU or you will get low frames.
Second: I think that the team will not make it becasue it means that they will need to make a physx engine, which I think is too much for HL1 engine.
Third: Doing such engine will sharply increase the requirements needed to play this game.

Note: Even if the team doesnt make your suggestion, it doesnt mean that it's a bad one.
So dont get sad.

1) ESF has a physics engine
2) You dont need a physics engine to blur someones screen, or rattle their camera.

I know that esf has a physics engine, but the physx i meant was the one that can do the ground shaking,destructions ,water pushing..etc
ESF doesnt have such engine.
Now even if they try to make one,it will take too much CPU power as I said before and will you will get low FPS, unless you have a great CPU.
this issue can be fixed, but since we are not talking about making one then there is no need for me say it .

Of course. But how about if you do the job so well that you can't really notice what it is? :)
They have to consider a lot when making all the eye-candy stuff.

There is a way to shake the camera so that it seems the terrain is shaking. Besides lets not forget out terrain are models. Animatable models at that. So a shaking animation can be made XD

Heck the entire esf_buu level is constantly moving. Just looks so COOL >.<

It's true that a shaking animation can be made using the camera,but shaking itself doesnt do the whole thing. you will need to add other things.

You do realise that EVERY videogame/movie/animation EVER made is based on the principle of illusion, right?

You dont need to shake the entire map to make the player feel like the earth is trembling.
You force the camera to shake. Add some tectonic-rumbling sound FX. Maybe even make the controls a little less responsive.
If a movie had a scene involving an earthquake, do you think they rattled the planet, or the camera?

Games use FX systems for these things, not physics systems. Do games use a physics based engine to produce molecules that combust to create fire? Or would they use some kind of sprite or particle illusion?
When you want the screen to blur, do we use physics to replicate a sonic boom? No, we use a shader system, and sound FX.

Games imitate reality, they dont replicate it.

Nope. Animated levels. The models themselves can be animated XD
Really?
Well that leaves the game open to many possibilities. :D
