Dear videogame industry, we need to talk...

   0
You keep on disappointing me! Not everyone in the industry, mind you, but a select few that make me feel sad on a regular basis create a feeling of distrust and dislike for you as an industry. Maybe I should explain to my dear readers why that is... I'll try to keep this short.

Nintendo's behavior

I have said this several times already, but I think I can say it again, with newly gained trust behind my words: I don't get Nintendo! So, Reggie comes on stage during E3 saying that they'll do everything to get the Hardcore gamers back. Heck, when didn't they make that promise, actually? A few weeks later, there's this Operation Rainfall campaign, so that the Wii can be more than some Netflix-box or an overprized paperweight. I live in Europe, so I shouldn't actually care about this, but still, I think Nintendo's behavior just downright sucks when it comes to releasing games. If that is your attitude when it comes to localization, don't be such dicks and make your consoles AND handhelds region locked! You're just begging hackers to take your systems apart!



and you know what's the sad part about this? The Dev team that worked on that will probably move on to make another Resident Evil or Street Fighter game. Because there aren't enough of those and they aren't totally stagnant by now! It's not only that, but also the fact that after all these months of teasing us and involving fans in the development process, the game just gets canned. What kind of relationship do you have with you fanbase? One coming straight from your local S/M-Club I'd assume...

In Conclusion...

The industry makes me sad, because it constantly disappoints me in so many ways. There are a lot of decisions being taken that don't make much sense or just show that an industry that brought so much magic into my childhood actually just is a huge, money-making machine, run by people who don't really get their target audience...

Also, cocks!
