Life after Epic: Getting to know Cliff Bleszinski (part three: his opinions on shooters)

GamesBeat's Dan "Shoe" Hsu: Video game designer Cliff Bleszinski always speaks his mind — except for this one time. A few years ago, when I asked the creator of Gears of War and Unreal Tournament to give his thoughts on his competition — other shooters like Halo or Call of Duty — he declined.

Bleszinski recently left Epic after a 20-year stint, however, which now frees him up to say what he really thinks of his former competition. (Battlefield 3, Dev, Halo 4, Industry, Resident Evil 6)

Fascinating read!

Yeah he's remarkably down to earth and I agree with every single one of his sentiments. He's the kind of guy you can have a converstion with about games normally and not feel awkward and at the same time have respect for his talent and what he has achieved.

Cliffy, if you're reading this, you're a G no matter what the keyboard warriors say.

Love these kinds of interviews with interesting people.

I never thought about what he said about BioShock being oppressive with the underwater environment, but I guess he's right now that I think about it. He's spot-on with Call of Duty and Halo, too.

How did you miss that in Bioshock? haha!
SybaRat  +   942d ago
So, Halo > Call of Duty. That won't start ANY fights, nope.
Septic  +   942d ago
THAT'S what you got from the interview? Wow ....

Out of interest, do you agree with his sentiments regarding COD and Halo?
hazardman  +   942d ago
He was clearly speaking the truth. Halo is a way better series than COD! Its ok Cliff ill get all the disagrees you just keep speaking your mind!!

Great interview, do more with other developers if they are available!
hazardman  +   942d ago
Great interview, great breakdowns on the games he plays. I know he left Epic, but MS should give this guy controls of one of its studios. Seeing as a lot say Xbox division is not ran by gamers....here's your chance sign this dude up as soon as his vacation from all things gaming is over!!
