Loading Screen Evolution! (video)

  

  

Video Editorial: Loading Screen Evolution!
It's been a while since I whipped up a video-editorial, but I had some spare time this weekend to dust off the camera and capture random game footage. I figured I try to shoot a piece about the most boring part of gaming; Loading Screens. It was a sort of challange I guess, and I'm pretty happy with the results. More importantly, once you've watched the video be sure to post your ideas for loading screens in the future. This video contains profanity and is therefore age-gated as per Gamespot rules.

1. The ones with progress bars so I can measure how much time I have to kill. 
2. Progress bars or time limits. Loading screens are necessary at this point in time, so just tell me how long it'll take and I can look something up real quick or clean up a bit.

Anyway, nice video. I want a SWOS free roam arena FIFA style loading screen!

I like the loading screens that have some sort of mini game to amuse me. One thing I liked about some of the Dragon Ball games.

1. Progress bars and mini games! Also Story telling ones like MW are awesome I think.
2. More Mini Games! Even if they are terrible little time killers, like Dragon Ball Z games always have terrible little mini games for their loading screens.

Loading screens should have more physics minigames.
 
Something like World Of Goo.
