I should warn people that this is about to get more surreal then most of my posts or any of them frankly. I’m feeling experimental tonight, and this is a comparison attempt I’ve wanted to do for a while. Do you think you are ready. Well then venture forth……
Does this actions scene have a crazy techno beat or guitar solo playing throughout it? You better believe it. Everything is stylish to the max and they want you to know they are in full control of the project. They love to form partnerships of opportunity with other studios and seem to have a fascination with ancient cultures and rituals in the works they produce and publish. Cool is the way to go.
WHOA! LOOK AT THESE AWESOME 2D DRAWINGS! Where have I seen this before though. Hey that anime girl looks cute…..wait this all feels to easy, to simple. Otaku friendly is the way to go as well as proven working formula. Things start to feel kind of samey after a while, but at least something is kind of different each time. Getting through it can be quite the ride, but in the end there’s always that feeling left that it’s been a grind to get there.
What’s with all these people and why are they all fighting each other. This brooding atmosphere, war everywhere…..little girls kicking everyones ass….what the? What’s with all this mythical being in a real world setting and why do I keep getting the message, melee weapon beats every ranged weapon combined? So much shooting going on, but I can’t really pin down where it’s all coming from. Rie Kugimiya’s not in at the moment, would you like to leave a message?
So you’ve defined a few genres for the world and been around forever, now what are you going to do? Let’s have some sequels! What’s with all these damn robots and talking about war and peace? Just how many key franchises do you bloody people have anyway. Stop being such attention whores, stop making so much profit this instant and start a new franchise! Just when you think you’ve got them all figured out, whoops did somebody just reinvent a genre or completely pull the rug out from under you on this one…..ROBOTS, ZANY DIALOGUE, RAW ENTERTAINMENT!
BIGGER, FASTER, MORE XTREME! IN YOUR FAST! BLAST PROCESSING! aimless? What once was mighty and held it’s own against the best has lost it’s way. Vain attempt after vain attempt, but never with that feeling of effort have left them the favourite whipping boy of all who know the name. With a little effort, some inspiration and a good team miracles can happen, but they haven’t in the longest time anyone can remember. Is there destiny to just wander aimlessly looking for a receptive audience as they deceive with seemingly good ideas only to blow it on the execution? Only time will tell.
Wow that was the most fun I’ve had at blogging in a while. So I only chose five of the highest profile studios and game companies I could think of right off the bat. Though if people found this interesting enough and they ask nicely I’ll take requests for additions to the article.
