In the default installation of NWN, when your character dies, you just hit the re-spawn button, then get back up. (Usually to get whacked right back down).

How is death and re-spawning handled in your favorite video games? In the old days, we would get 3 "lives", then that's it...game over. How have things changed?

In most games you have a checkpoint and if you die, you respawn at the checkpoint. In GTA, if you die you actually respawn at a hospital. Some games have a hardcore mode and if you die, you'll have to restart from the beginning. In some games like Subnautica, if you die you restart at a home base with some of your items.

In my favorite game(Minecraft) there are beds that are used as a re spawn point you lose all of your items and have a set time to get those items before they disappear so if u get unlucky u could end up losing all of your stuff permanently.

In many games nowadays, there is an autosave system in place, where once you do a specific thing like walk in a building or complete a quest, it saves your progress. This is a great system for if you forget to save.

In one of my favorite games that I play, the first time you die, you get one chance to resurrect yourself, and the next time you die you re spawn in the last place you rested (which is where you saved the game). The catch is, each time you die, there's a sickness that spreads throughout the empire, getting worse and more deadlier each time you die. So you have unlimited lives, but each time you die you get severely punished for doing so. This way, it encourages the player to try not to die as often.

In these past years games like pubg death are usually when they get killed they die until the next round. Call of duty mobile when you play team death match you can respawn back to the game but on battle royale you can't resapwn back.

My favorite game allows five lives. If you run out of hearts, you have to wait to regain your lives in order to continue the game.

well some games start out with one and only one life, and that is a lot harder then a majority of games, but i like having to try in a game and come up with more strategic moves that's why a one life games are cool.

My favorite video game is JUST CAUSE 4. It takes alot of gunfire and explosions in order to die,but when your main character (Rico Rodriguez) does die you'll respawn in a random location closest to where you died. In JUST CAUSE 4 the player has an infinite amount
of lives.

I don't like playing games but when I do it's usually Minecraft... You can re-spawn as many times as you want in a normal world. In hardcore mod you get one map and one life.

In most games, there will be a "health-gate", this is a term mostly for rpg's and used as a balancing element, such as, "If the player is above 55% of their maximum health, than they can't be killed by only one hit, excluding off screen."
This is my favorite form of player health, you still cherish your hp, even if you can't be one-shotted.

Well I don't play video games beside Fortnite like probably 2 times before ever but even in that I play the team mode so I do respawn because I suck at video games, so I can't really respond to this.

In most of games that I have played, when I die I mostly return back to the checkpoint when I last saved and this even helps because so then you don't have to get angry on getting your items again and again.

In most games now, you reach a certain checkpoint and if you die you respond from the latest check point. I think it helps you but at the same time it might not be fun. It could help you by if you fail you can keep trying and get better and understand how to move on. It's basically like learning from your mistake.

In The Last Of Us, which is my favorite game, you can re-spawn as many times as you want, but when you die, the items you have used do not come back for you to use, and you can get stuck at times due to not having enough resources to get past. [Linked Image from upload.wikimedia.org]

In my favorite game you usually have the amount of lives that are decided in the rules. After getting thrown off screen and re-spawning you usually get an invincibility period which lasts a bit before you can get attacked again.

In GTA 5 you respawn at a hospital but in most Battle Royal Games you have to restart the match. In Minecraft there is a "hard core" mode that when you die you are and you have to restart a new world.

In one of the games I like, (Jedi Fallen Order). If you die you can respawn at the nearest meditation site you last interacted with.

Most games have checkpoints so that when you die they re spawn there. Some games once you die you got to restart from the beginning

Usually there's a place where you last set your spawn that you return to when you die. Or maybe they just return to the start of the game when they die.

In most multiplayer fps games they have a re-spawn location where you come back after you die such as Modern Warfare. Some, however, you can't re-spawn until the end of a round, such as Rainbow Six. Some games like Apex legends you get knocked first and then bleed out. Once you bleed out your teammates can collect your banner which allows you to come back into the game. Other games such as God of War have checkpoints and other designated re-spawn locations where you return to after you fail to complete a mission or quest.

In the most popular game known on the face of this planet Call of Duty is known for re-spawning shortly after the time of a player getting killed. During multiplayer mode however, users spawn in random locations.

There is many parts of this debate depending on the type of game you are playing. For instance a battle royal game does not need a re spawning but, it adds a different element to the game. Story games on the other hand, need re spawning because if there was none your game would have to be extremely easy.With the use of re spawning in story games you can try again and the game can be as difficult as the developers want.
