Correlated tags

Correlation is how often another tag appears together with this tag. If one in every five games tagged with Physics is also tagged with a correlated tag, the correlated tag has 20% correlation. 100% correlation means the pair of tags always appear together.

Tags most frequently applied to the same games as Physics, with at least 15% correlation.

The Physics tag describes games that heavily incorporate realistic or simulated physics in their gameplay mechanics and interactions. These games aim to provide a more lifelike experience by accurately modeling the laws of physics and how objects behave in the game world.

In physics-based games, objects will typically interact with each other and the environment based on factors such as gravity, momentum, friction, and collisions. This can lead to unpredictable or dynamic gameplay scenarios where players need to understand and manipulate these physical forces to progress or solve puzzles.

Some key features of physics-based games include:

  • Ragdoll Physics Games that utilize ragdoll physics simulate the movement of characters or objects as if they were limp bodies. This often leads to hilarious and exaggerated animations when characters take a hit or fall down.
  • Projectile Trajectories Games that involve shooting projectiles (such as arrows, balls, or bullets) will calculate their trajectory based on factors like velocity, angle of launch, air resistance, and gravity. Precision aiming is often required for successful shots.
  • Destructible Environments Some physics-based games allow you to interact with the environment by destroying obstacles or structures. The destruction is usually modeled realistically, with materials breaking apart according to their properties.
  • Puzzle Solving Physics-based puzzles often require players to understand how different objects interact physically in order to solve challenges. For example, manipulating levers or using gravity manipulation devices may be necessary for progression.

Some notable examples of games with strong physics elements are:

  • Half-Life 2 This iconic first-person shooter makes extensive use of its Source engine's advanced physics capabilities for realistic object manipulation, environmental destruction, and puzzle solving.
  • Portal Another Source engine game, Portal combines physics-based puzzles with mind-bending mechanics revolving around the use of portals to manipulate momentum and gravity.
  • Besiege In this building and sandbox game, players construct medieval siege engines (such as catapults or trebuchets) using realistic physics to launch projectiles at targets or solve challenges.

Physics-based games add an extra layer of realism and immersion to gameplay by incorporating accurate physics simulations. They often provide unique and engaging experiences through dynamic interactions with the game world.
