Techtorial: It's time too look back with some of the great game companies we had in the past, where are they now, and what we can learn from their mistakes.
I am still hating on EA for ruining Westwood. Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 2 were the first 2 PC games I spent countless hours on online gaming. I even managed to get in the Top 50 worldwide for Red Alert 2. Nothing but great times when I think back. C&C Renegade, Generals and all the other C&C games were just crap. It really breaks my heart. Studios / Publishers that were closed or ruined: - Acclaim (Extreme G / Forsaken) - Zipper (Socom 2) - Ensemble Studios (AoE) - Bizarre Creations (PGR, Geometry Wars) - NeverSoft (Tony Hawk / Guitar Hero)
RA2 is god on 2001.
Many companies nowadays got greedy and completely abandoned their loyal fans for extra money. They pander their games to a new audience. As a result, games have gotten shorter, contain less substance, hold your hand through the game's toughest parts, tell a mediocre story, and then slap on a multiplayer with the same old game modes from the 51,283 other mediocre shooters on the market. Games are going the way of movies: down the toilet. The only movies I watch nowadays are whatever is on TV, and have yet to see a good movie worth buying within the past decade. I am afraid gaming will end up the same.
no wonder if u want a good classic game its on PSN instead but instead the studio they all FKING gone. cant keep playing FIRST PERSON SHOOTERS rest of my life gaming WILL die without VARIETY.
