Bethesda boss happy to be the “Pixar of video games”

Bethesda-published games may be very different in terms of genre and style, but PR and marketing vice president Pete Hines feels they’ve all got one important thing in common that clearly shows their origins.

I don't think PS3 users agree

He says he "wants" the company to be the Pixar of video games (Aka a company known and recognized for their quality). Not that he says they are the Pixar of video games.

But eh, everyone wants clicks right?

Bethesda is nowhere near being the pixar of video games!! Lmao!! I would have to say when it comes to quality and animation alone, i would give that title to naughty dog!

Btw, the author is a dirt bag for flipping words like that.

44 comments before this and nobody's mentioned Ratchet & Clank?

The past couple games have been relative duds, but R&C has been called the Pixar of gaming plenty of times before.

Bethesda doesn't make that style of games.

R&C fits in with A Bug's Life, Nemo, Wall-E, etc. Fallout and The Elder Scrolls don't.

I think Nintendo deserves this title more than any other studio.

Pixar revolutionized a generation of animated 3D movies...

Nintendo revolutionized generations of gaming and even hardware (SNES, N64 and Wii).

Bethesda should stop doing only FPS games to begin with. Pixar is bold. This studio plays safe with fps genre.

What Rikitatsu said.

I'm not clicking the link to fuel sensationalist bullshit sites like this. If Bethesda actually claimed them to be the Pixar of Games I'd bloody laugh my ass off. Pixar of gaming would be with developers like Rockstar and Naughty Dog, not Bethesda....Bethesda is in terms with Capcom or Konami, ND and RS are Big Leaguers in this industry when it comes to Quality.

It's not even the bugs/glitches, they don't have the trademark "SpecialSauce".

Rockstar is THE Pixar or even Disney of the gaming industry. Every game has been great, with the classic R* touch.

Tomorrow's GTA Online reveal has me so pumped.

I think after Cars, Cars 2, Brave and Planes, we can say being Pixar aint that cool after all.

frostyhat1231945d ago

@luoshuigui Planes is not Pixar

FanboyCrusher1945d ago (Edited 1945d ago )

They should have tried harder, but from the company side of things I can't blame them for not wanting to extend development time for months on end, working their way around the black magic that is the PS3 Cell processor, all so the smallest install base from all the platforms can have a slightly better version then they have now.

Business, smart. As moral thing it was a complete and utter disgusting thing to do. People paid good money for it, why shouldn't the game work like it's 360 counter part?

Deadpoolio1945d ago

Its not just PS3 Fallout 3, Fallout NV and Skyrim were all buggy and half broken on PC, 360 and PS3....I've never seen a broken pixar movie lazily made. Bugthesda has never released a game that works completely at launch on anything

sobotz1945d ago (Edited 1945d ago )

I'm fine playing those 3 on the 360 version. PC can use console commands & mods so it won't be a problem.

However, when I played Fallout 3 GOTY on the PS3 version, maybe at first there's no problem, but your save file is becoming bigger each time you completed a mission, and the bigger it is, the more often your game will freeze. And when it reaches past 11MB, you almost can't play it anymore

A "Pixar" by a company within an industry that creates content for the lowest common denominator audience and sells extremely well for the most part? That should be Nintendo then

CaptainPunch1945d ago

Don't agree at all, sorry.

ifritAlkhemyst1945d ago

The average console Zelda game is damn near inaccessible for the modern gamer weaned on CoD and your average AAA shooter experience.

aLucidMind1945d ago

Just Zelda? Isnt that the case with most games?

AnotherProGamer1945d ago

have you played Skyrim? its dumbed down for the lowest common denominator

ABeastNamedTariq1945d ago (Edited 1945d ago )

HAHA, in what world? Nirn, that's where.

ABeastNamedTariq1945d ago

The planet that Tamriel (Elder Scrolls) is on is called Nirn, lol. But Narnia's just as good! Haha

luoshuigui1945d ago

If you need to explain your joke, then it's not a good one

ABeastNamedTariq1945d ago

But what if he's just out of the Elder Scrolls loop :( haha.

Deadpoolio1945d ago

Could be Bizzaro world....

Sarobi1945d ago

I think Telltale is more fitted to be the "Pixar" of video games

MrTrololo1945d ago

Haha just because one of their game the Walking Dead have excellent review score and earn a lot of GOTY. They are the pixar of video games ? Have you played other telltale games ? *cough* jurassic park

WitWolfy1945d ago

JP wasn't thaaaaat bad, just WAY over priced. Even TWD which a better and newer game is cheaper than JP.
