Wow, that's a pretty interesting, and harsh read. Some of those employees comments are pretty damning of what it must be like to work there.

It's nice to know the truth though. These are the people who deal with the BS that we don't know about or can't factor into our daily comments.

It's difficult to accomplish anything efficiently when you have poor management.

Well, it's the similar situation for many game publishing companies that won't be mentioned by name here. Management is mostly shit with overblown ego, I left my job at similar place cause of the political office "buttcheek chair grabbing" nonsense, I was honestly afraid somebody will be punched in the face really, really fucking hard, and it won't be me.

It has two sides. Fanbase enjoying the product without any knowledge of how the other side struggles and sacrifices anything to give most of their lifes work basically to "managing" parasites, 'cause laid off are only lower tier workers. Parasites obtain bonuses thanks to tightening the budget(you know, "good work for cutting those expenses").

The countless times I've been fighting with management for any damn reason, protecting the team, have only brought me to this conclusion: fuck them corporate abominations. They aren't humans.

Yeah, it sounds like some people had it pretty rough there, and the people at the top didn't have a clue what was going on. Saving their own personal skin while everything fell apart around them.

Guess that's a common theme in so many large companies though.

Interesting to see that Europe got more respect internally that US. I guess Alien Isolation did far better that Sonic Boom, eh? ;)

DaveyB1263d ago

That's what happens if you just keep making shit Sonic game after shit Sonic game.

That was the company's main mascot - and they basically raped him.

Lol damn, sounded like a mess.

Hope that things turn around though and that Sega reads some of these suggestions.

DaveyB1263d ago

yeah, I wonder if any of the management ever read any of that stuff?

Nucler1001263d ago

Lol yeah man, judging by what happened, I'm not sure if they even read any feedback at all.

It really saddens me to see sega as it is today, I still play my old sega consoles and love how great they were. Shame.

To be fair they tried to continue making Sega-esque games like Panzer Dragoon Orta, Jet Set Radio Future, Otogi and a lot of new IP's but they didnt sell well enough. Gamers these days arent as interested in the bright colors, arcade gameplay and japanese flair that characterized Sega games

Sega's last moment of brilliance was 2009-2010 with Vanquish, Bayonetta, Sonic Colors, Madworld, and HOTD: Overkill, those were the last really "Sega" games they published/developed.

Since then it feels like Yakuza is the only series that feels worthy of the Sega name.

I don't even credit Sega having anything to do with Vanquish and Bayonetta, that was all Platinum games credit. Sure they gave them money, but look at what Sega did to the PS3 version.
