Crytek CEO: Console gamers 'don't respect development'

Cervat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, has told OXM that console gamers 'don't respect development'.

He explained that one of the major differences between PC gamers and console gamers is that "a PC gamer forgives you for about a minute" while "a console gamer gives you two seconds." (Crysis 2, PS3, Xbox 360)

Gaming company CEO and knows so little about gamers.
His description fits fanboys perfectly. But in the console communities there are people with brains too!

And here we are, gamers, pretty sure that Crytek tries to get themselves publicity using rather controversive comments about others.

In short. We know more about making games and PR than Crytek CEO about his target demography... Sad, sad.

what people dont like, regardles of where they play their games
is Developers, writers and everyone who is working on this particular project saying more negative things about anyone then they are talking about features of their game.

The only thing I know about this game is "graphics bla bla bla. Everyone sucks except us."

All this talk an it is still just a rental.

completely agree with him.

a majority of console gamers wont give a game a second look if "the graphics suck" to them. whereas PC gamers, we play games over and over from a decade ago like HL or Fallout for it's fun factor. hell thousands still play CS 1.6 til this day because of its fun factor.

PC gamers let a lot slide, like a game being released with tons of bugs (looking at you BC2) because we have faith DICE will fix things. it's either its crap or its great with a majority of console users, there is hardly a middle ground.

I think his point is that console games are somewhat obligated to cater to a younger audience and need to be more reward-driven.

Please just shut the hell up a little bit. No one was thinking he was talking about PS3 fanboys other than yourself.

Anyways, it is not our job to understand or even care about how these guys make games. In fact it is their job to make sure we don't even think about it when we're playing.

We want to have an enjoyable experience. We don't want to play a crappy game because the developer gave their best. If the game isn't good I'm moving on. If devs don't like that they need to either get out of the business or make good games.

I sorta get what he's saying
But it could definitely have been phrased better. Bottom line: we only give a crap about development when we're singing the praises of a fantastic game...or ranking it out as an epic fail.

So what he was saying in relation to Crysis 2, is that they'd better get it right the first time; because second chances are slim to none in this business, whereas PC gaming is a bit more forgiving as an industry.

Too bad he came off sounding like he was slanging his customers.

I don't feel he understands what he is saying. The one thing that shows respect in a consumer sense is consuming the product. If PC games aren't the most pirated games in existence then he might have a point somewhere. I feel that playing a game for years on end shows loyalty. I feel that paying for a produced product shows respect. Stealing something and being loyal to that stolen product isn't very respectful at all.

You should get angry when DICE released BC2 with bugs. They used paying customers as beta testers. You should be furious that you had to pay for an unfinished product. It is not something to take pride in as a PC gamer. Also, your assertion that no one on consoles plays old games because of graphics is.... for lack of a better word, retarded. I am currently playing Digimon world having just refinished a run of FF8. On the handheld side I am currently on Oracle of Ages having finished Seasons about a week ago.

All we have to say is that they better deliver when Crysis 2 comes out. There's no room for anything but perfection, because all the things they said are going to be thrown back in their face.

With that being said my bet is that Crysis 2 will be something special.

solar  +   1589d ago
@ BigPenguin
who said i wasn't angry? i was in the Beta and expected a lot of things that annoy me about the game to be addressed. they weren't and still aren't.

and the word "majority" doesn't mean "all", which is why i used "majority". i know there are console gamers that go back and play great games from the past. but imo a "majority" dont. hell i was called "retarded" from a console gamer on this site for playing any game earlier than 2005 because "the graphics suck" and seen many user's here state the same followed by "not interested".

why do you think we see all these graphic comparisons between multi plats? because for some reason a bad texture suddenly makes the game bad? and ill buy this version because it's visually superior? that's truly the dumbing down of society if your judgement on which version to buy is over negligible graphic comparisons.

and "On the handheld side I am currently on Oracle of Ages having finished Seasons about a week ago. I am not unique, everyone else does this, your comment was made with a complete lack of thought."

no sir, your comment was made with a complete lack of thought.

I'm not sure what the arrogance is all about with Crytek. Crysis Wars was a terrible online experience, so I'm still not sure if these guys can come through with a good experience. I want to see if they can actually make some good controller configurations, because using the 360 controller to play Crysis and Crysis Warhead was a chore.

DarkTower805  +   1589d ago
I think this CEO is realizing that now that they are going multi-plat they now have to actually come up with a good single player experience, and it's tough for them to do that lol. PC gamers let Crysis slide BIG TIME because of it's superior graphics, but console gamers won't do that. If the game isn't fun and engaging it WILL fail on the console, and I think that upsets Crytek a bit.

Yes, we all know you can make a pretty game with awesome physics, but sorry guys, that's not enough anymore. Day one rental.

"who said i wasn't angry? i was in the Beta and expected a lot of things that annoy me about the game to be addressed. they weren't and still aren't."

You atempted to use the example below to show the better attitude that PC gamers have over console gamers. You used it as a positive. How could it be a positive if you were just as angry as one of us "console fanboys" would have been? I am livid that console's are having DLC that is on the disk but you have to pay for, just like you should be livid that you have to purchase what amounts to a bug-filled crap-fest. You are not better then console gamers then, you just have different concerns and prioritys.

"PC gamers let a lot slide, like a game being released with tons of bugs (looking at you BC2) because we have faith DICE will fix things."

-----

Secondly of course you did not say all. I understand that you said majority. Just as you should understand if I said the majority of southerners were inbred retarded rednecks, or majority of people in San Francisco were f@gs, it would still cause offense to those who were not. For you to argue differently...

As for your graphics argument, you are once again not looking at your own side of the equation. If graphics do not matter, why would you ever upgrade your video card if you did not have to to play at the bare minimum settings? Hypocrite? Once again, you are not better then a console gamer, you just have different concerns.

You are not better then anyone else just because you play on the PC, that is why I disagree with you. However you seemed to miss the point with your completely inane rebuttals.
MNicholas  +   1588d ago
He's right
but by whining about it he risks alienating his potential customers.

PC games are definitely more forgiving. THat's because most PC gamers spend a lot of time building their machines and constantly trying different games. Even playing a full game for the first time requires a huge time investment as the game has to fully install on the hard-drive.

Console gamers simply have to pop it in and start playing so they're not as invested. It's really that simple.

RedDragan  +   1589d ago
This has been taken a LONG WAY out of context by yet more clever headlining to generate website hits.

What he said is this:

"It sucks or it fails and you're either the top or a flop. They don't respect any value you put into your development, either it works or it doesn't work."

He goes on to explain how this pressure has ultimately made Crysis 2 a better game."

Basically he is saying that by making the game for consoles his teams have had to up their game... is this really a bad thing.

And don't forget it is journo's going to crytek, not crytek going to journo's.
wicko  +   1589d ago
Yeah, and he's 100% correct too. Think about it, games like counterstrike or half life, or even crysis for that matter keep living on because of the community. The players in that community spread the word to friends, the game goes on sale on steam and people buy it up. It's not a huge boom in sales right from release, but a significant amount of sales over time. Modding and mapping keep the game alive for a much longer time than any console game. And when there are exceptions to that (ie Halo 2), eventually support is cut. With dedicated servers and modding communities, the games last as long as the players want it to.
chazjamie  +   1589d ago

does the guy know how much we have to spend on your 6-10 hour games when pc gamers dont even pay half that amount.

yes they use there cash on upgrades, but if you going to expect to accept a crap game at full price, u must be insane.

DROP THE PRICE TO THAT OF A PC GAME, AND U WONT GET ANY COMPLAINTS FROM ME BUT UNTIL THAT HAPPENS IF YOUR GAME IS CRAP BE PREPARED TO GET SLAMMED.
Raf1k1  +   1589d ago
lol this is the first thing he's said that I can agree with.

edit: If a game isn't very good console gamers will switch off almost immediately whereas PC gamers would continue to play to see if it improves. This is obviously a generalisation and not true for all console and PC gamers.

LOL sorry but...
PC gamers are the worst when it comes to not respecting developers when they do not get what they want. I know because I am part of multiple PC gaming communities. They resort to promoting hacks, pirating and looking for ways to sabotage either the companies games/web servers, forums or anything else till the point where the company just gives up on the game. That's why many companies are now resorting to console games. This guy is seriously just pulling sh1t out of his @ss. LOL did the PC gamers respect them when Crisis was one of the most pirated games in 2008? and with such high PC requirements, bad sales there was no online community for it.

Interesting.....
These fools are doing so much trash talking yet have not shown proper footage to support half their claims about this game.

Console gamers by and large might be harsher than those on PC, but it could be because they value their money and demand quality. Talking trash like this will only make people judge them more harshly once the final product is released.

Unless they are looking to all of this to justify their failure if the game doesn't do well. I can see it now, "our product was solid but the blind hate from console gamers did us in."

As I said before, sometimes it is wise to STFU and let the product speak for itself.

But probably listening too much to the more vocal retarded 12 year olds that can't gauge a game more finely than GOTY or Worst Game Ever!

Elwenil  +   1589d ago
As much as I don't want to...
...I sort of have to agree with this guy this time. PC gamers are a bit more patient, while console gamers tend to be a lot more critical of just about everything. I don't know if it's this all the fanboys this gen, the utter rash of reviews and "articles" out on the Internet these days or maybe just that console gamers are a bit spoiled. PC gamers tend to have a "can do" attitude towards game fixes and so on. Maybe it's because of the issues many experience tweaking their system to run different games or maybe the modding community. Console gamers expect everything to be perfect right out of the box. There is perhaps reason behind this since, in my opinion anyway, old console games didn't have as many bugs and problems as the current generation seems to have. The ability to patch games after release seems to have lowered the quality standard for a newly released game. Another thing to consider is that in the past console gamers have generally paid higher prices for the same game than what PC gamers usually do. So console gamers may be justified in their stubbornness, which I would not consider disrespect to a developer in my opinion, but it does seem to exist. Perhaps if developers took the time to polish games before release, stop raping us for every little dime for DLC and stopped making asinine comments to the "media" then maybe gamers would respect them more.

your logic makes no sense.

If a developer/publisher wants to stay "good" they will not make any references to severely divide the community there are trying to sell there product to.

If they decide to go against that, the community has the right to bash that same developer/publisher.

well, consider this console player that doesn't "respect game development" one less customer.

seriously these guys are setting themselves up for epic failure, the only people that will buy this game are people that go online and look up game news. The casual-hardcore market is going to pass on this. So they are shooting themselves in the foot by posting ludicrous statements and no one except PC gamers will be supporting them.

6 - I agree final fantasy they worked so hard.
but ppl were quick to call it flop. even though it has a good score in metacritic.
-------

i have tons of friends who are in love with FF, and they even say that 13 was a snooze fest until 10 hours in. What kind of game has a long boring prologue to get the story going. Someone messed up on the narrative aspect of the game. No game should take longer than 3-5 hrs to get going, especially an (J)RPG.

edit* i realize some people like long narratives to get the story going, so i guess those people enjoyed this.

What do you mean by prologue? The only part i found a little boring were the first 2 chapters that lasted for less than 2 hours

wow
cut the hate on Crytek all of these articles are being pulled out of interviews, most from the same 1 just using the comments and taking them out of context to generate hits. I agree with what this guy said and his comment was not directed at US(GAMERS) it was directed to his developers to step their game up. If anything that comment actually makes me think about picking up Crysis more because I know they wont just be blowing smoke w/ the console version.

LOL
Well we all know this is N4G. Not much common sense here. Ill just let the game do the talking. I could care less what developer talks crap about X game or Y game, as long as that developer's game kicks ass Im cool and Ill purchase it.

Another one that didn't read the story. I can do this all day people. Wait no I can't, I'm almost out of bubbles.

how do you know he didnt read the article? People will take something that sounds bad, and say it is bad.

The quote seems like Crytek is crying that the console market doesnt appreciate the time they put into a game, because if a game starts of bad they will drop it.

Well if Crytek sees this problem, keep your mouth shut, and do your best so your product doesn't fall under those circumstances instead of expressing an opinion that is really subjective and can get you lots of hate.

These guys are much too vocal :/. Everyday it's something. As a console gamer who does respect the game development process, I feel somewhat insulted. This comment is unnecessary; cut it down to "most" or "some" console gamers if you wish, but there are many gamers out there (both console and PC gamers) who recognize the labor and hardships game developers have to pull through to emerge with an adequate product. I'm sure it was just a generalization (it happens all the time), but it would have been better to not have said anything at all. If Crytek initially thought that console gamers had little respect for game developers, then after this comment, Crytek is bound to receive much less respect from them prior to the release of the game. I guess it's PR talk, but these guys need to show a tad more respect for their audience. There's one thing I appreciate, more than anything, with respect to studios like Naughty Dog: they're humble. Not much to say and they come out with an unexpected bang. I'm sure Crysis 2 will deliver, and with that in mind, just let the game speak for itself.
