Cliff Bleszinski wants Epic to return to their roots; wants to produce less linear/scripted games

DSOGaming writes: "You know what? Today feels really like an April’s fools day. I mean, take a look at Romero’s statements that we’ve posted a couple of hours ago. Sounded awesome, right? Well, here comes and Cliff Bleszinski to jump on the ‘less-linear games’ band-wagon. No, I’m not kidding. That Cliff, the same one that was responsible for slow paced and scripted games like GoW – and my God GoW 3 has lots of scripted events – has revealed that he wants to produce less linear games. Who would have thought."

The dude needs to make a mature game and by mature I don't mean in the graphically violent sense.

How about less dudebro and generic super soldiers with stereotypical dialogue too? I like the games but I'd like them more if the characters weren't so blatantly uninspired.

so cod is very mature?

RedDead2326d ago (Edited 2326d ago )

He has no qualms with GTA. Suppose GTA is extremely mature right?

Basically DR, you could say that about almost every ****ing game this gen. Is Uncharted 'mature'? God of War? GTA? Killzone? COd? Halo?

No. They are all uninspired and unoriginal. Quality is what it is though

@ Grap why did you jump to assume he thinks cod is mature? he said NOTHING about cod. He also said nothing about Dora the Explorer so can I assume he thinks that is mature?

Baka-akaB2326d ago

yeah unless he has some kind of post history with cod , i'm not getting it

Grap2326d ago (Edited 2326d ago )

I am just asking why the disagree !diottts? or did i just troll my self to think that a real pregunta?

spicelicka2326d ago

well gears 3 was definately less linear then previous gears games, specially with the 4 player co-op.

Gears doesn't get enough credit for its replayability while extremely linear and scripted games get praised since most people only do one playthrough.

That's like getting thatgamecompany to making a game without a hint of pretentiousness in it.

MySwordIsHeavenly2326d ago

Art does not have to be pretentious. Sure, some fans of flOw, Flower, and Journey are pretentious, but thatgamecompany is a very humble group of developers.

Sounds interesting. I don't mind linear games when done right (Limbo) but I hate blockbuster, mind-numbingly trite linear games that many AAA studios churn out.

TekoIie2326d ago

depends on how fun and linear a game is tbh. A game could be boring as hell and not be linear and it will be considered a bad game.

I am Alive had alleyways which led to nowhere. This was more annoying and i wish they werent there. Being linear can be good in some cases...
