Warren Spector Doesn’t Think Lollipop Chainsaw Should Have Been Made

Kotaku: "Warren Spector, one of the most respected game designers out there and the lead creator of the revered Deus Ex, did something unusual for a game designer today. At a talk at the DICE convention in Las Vegas, he named a name... or at least he let one of his slides name the name of a game that, he says, 'should just not be made.'

The game? Warner Brothers and Grasshopper Manufacture's violent, lowbrow game Lollipop Chainsaw on the screen."

I disagree with his disagreement.

Godchild10201931d ago

He should have thought about that with Epic Mickey 2 and going multiple platform with it.

yesmynameissumo1931d ago

His opinion isn't invalid simply because ME2 wasn't a hit. Lollipop Chainsaw was a shit game. Combat was atrocious and the little humor it did have wore off 20 minutes in.

It was easily better than epic mickey to begin with . And no i dont even like Lollipop chainsaw either way

I think he's full of crap, but I'll give him some leeway on this because it was said behind closed doors to a group of game designers, and was just an example in his presentation. Of course he can have his opinion, but using the game as an example isn't winning him any friends in the developer community. I personally think Warren is overrated, and Suda (although pretentious as all hell) is under appreciated (not underrated... I said under appreciated). Warren is against gratuitous violence, but Lollipop carries an "M" rating, so it can have as much ultra-violence as it wants. If he wants to make non-violent games... more power to him, but don't piss on someone else's work because they have a different vision/ideology.

Warren Spector is hardly overrated , but he isnt safe from making bad games , case in point with the quite uninteresting Epic Mickey series .

Otherwise i agree

okay warren is starting to get on my nerves, in a world where a majority of games are these overly serious, dark and gritty games, and lollipop chainsaw comes out and is a breath of fresh air and he has problems withit, warren just stop.

Agreed, I think LC is great, haven't played a fun silly game like it in a good while

rainslacker1929d ago

I agree. I don't even like zombie games, but the entire campy B-Rated feel of the game was rather entertaining, and the various jokes, at least those not teen sex related,actually made me laugh. The fighting got redundant after a while, but the game was really well done and presented better than many other AAA games out there.

Epic fail 2 shouldn't had been made imo :)

Kevlar0091931d ago

It was made by Suda51, what else would you expect? He's known for making over the top, quiky games. It's like saying Quinten Tarantino films should never be made because they're "tastless", or too gory. They fill a niche other films (in this case games) that few other developers make.

This game is just another example of Video Games as entertainment. Call of Duty or Rayman doesn't teach us about morality or life, what's wrong with this?
