Bleszinski: Industry Doesn't Value Visionaries

The games industry doesn't always properly recognize the contributions of individual influential developers, Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski told Gamasutra during a recent interview.

"I don't think the industry values visionaries as much as it could. I really don't," said Bleszinksi, who recently completed work on Gears of War 2. His comments came as part of a more extensive discussion set to appear on Gamasutra at a later date.

With a few rare exceptions, these influential developers are never even listed on the box art. But I have a hunch that someone like Bleszinski could change that. The guy is branding more than Epic or GOW2, he's branding himself.

he just give himself an excuse to not become one. So that deep inside he think he chose not to be not can't be.

He says that, but I think that's because he works on the console that doesn't. PS3's got Eden and LBP, which are pretty much "out of the box". Even Nintendo kinda let anyone have a shot at it's Wii.

MS takes the money they should be giving it's close dev teams and buys exclusivity deals instead.

Now to guess how many disagrees I'll get...

I agree. Don't forget about Linger in Shadows and Eye of Judgment. I think more than Nintendo and Microsoft, Sony is willing to take chances with creative titles even if they only target a niche audience and may not sell very well (or even just fail as a game outright).

Cliffy B is annoying.

Yeah he can be at times but your just as annoying to be honest. As a matter fact haters are always annoying to me so nothing personal.

edit below: well it looks like haters stick together or should i say people with multiple accounts. ;p

@5.1, "Yeah he can be at times but your just as annoying to be honest. As a matter fact haters are always annoying to me so nothing personal."

Better not look at the mirror, you will become a gigantic emo.

Edit: yeah the multiple account that took your bubble away, we all banding together to take your bubble away. It's all our fault. I see, it work out that way, when we hate a game, we are hater, when you hate PS3 games, that's the truth... ohh we are so not worthy.

Don't be a retard. Cliffy B. seems to be an arrogant person who thinks he is the hottest sh1t in games. He's not a visionary. His games may be great fun, but that doesn't make them artistic or deep. Just fun.
