I'm not just talking about the look of it. I am talking about stuff that can actually affect your gameplay, possibly hurt and kill you, or otherwise just make you modify what you wear and be on the constant lookout.
The idea itself of there actually being certain climate zones in the different parts of the game is a selling point to me. I believe I may have posted this on another thread, but can you imagine having to need a certain "warmth" stat up in the north? That not having this stat high enough would cause your health to lower at a certain rate in the particularly cold regions? Or otherwise debuff certain stats if you are in the cold with the wrong kind of armor. This would make players adapt, thus giving you more identity and an unseen level of immersion in the game.
Hurricanes on coastal regions, winter storms in the north, etc - all of this is something that would be amazing to experience in a game. Who knows what natural disasters developers could create with their imagination? Is this possible at all or just a gamer's dream? That they could create minor signs that only experienced players would notice, of an oncoming storm, would be simply beautiful.
SQ: Do you know any games/upcoming games that implement something of the like, supposing it is not impossibility?
