An evening with Uwe Boll

Uwe Boll is in a difficult position. As far as gamers go, he's probably the most universally hated person in the world bar Jack Thompson. But the irony is that most Boll-haters hate him so much that they refuse to watch any of his films. Any of them. So we have forums full of gamers who hate Boll because everyone else hates Boll, and because that automatically makes Boll's work worthless, it doesn't get seen. And because it doesn't get seen, Boll never gets a chance to change people's minds.

GamesRadar decided to put that right this week. Four brave cinematic adventurers from the GamesRadar team (Ben, David, James and Justin) picked up Boll's first three videogame movies (House Of The Dead, Bloodrayne and Alone In The Dark) and made an attempt to watch all of them in one night. How did we fare? Read on. Over the next six pages you'll find a brutal and frank, minute-by-minute account of our experiences and discussion.

I wonder what happened to that anti-Boll petition.

yanikins1115840d ago

So why do we hate this chump so much?

Gun_Senshi5840d ago (Edited 5840d ago )

He's an insult to gaming industry. All his movies are an insult to the game the movie is suppose to be above.

House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, BloodRayne II: Deliverance, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, and Postal.

yanikins1115840d ago (Edited 5840d ago )

What movies has he done apart from Alone in the dark? (he did do that right?)

I actually quite liked that... Then again im a deranged sociopath.

Edit: To be fair, Bloodrayne was a pretty sh** game to start with :P, And what was house of the dead? Was that the lightgun game from sega? Cos that was hardly GOTY material either. We gamers are not levelling our hate at someone for no reason are we?

Panthers5840d ago

I liked Blood Rayne (the game)

But if you go to Yahoo Movies and click on Top Rated, the have the lowest rated movies based on user reviews, and almost all of his movies rank in the Worst 25 movies of all time.

yanikins1115840d ago

Bloodrayne was OK, but i doubt anyone could have made a decent movie out of it. If he is making movies based on average games you cant really blame him if the movies stink. I mean it is his responsibilty, but last tme i checked Jesus was the last person to turn water into wine, if you get my analogy...

He has made Fanboys come together and put their differences aside...

He is a genius, he did ALL those bad movies, so that we could all have something in common, they hate for his work...

A hero indeed....

Why Indie Games Fail To Keep Their Place In The Spotlight

A look into the sad trajectory of indie games from high successful releases to complete irrelevancy in just a few weeks or months.

Easy not enough developpers to add content to the game (palworld)

Profchaos1d 8h ago

That's the thing with gaming there's always new experiences to have why spend months or years playing a single game when there's a new experience right around the corner.

Indie or AAA if your building your game expecting long term player counts you'll probably be disappointed as gamers often enjoy something for a few weeks and move on only to return if it's truely a classic.

Out of all the generations I've experienced there's games from 30 plus years ago I still dust off and play like super Mario bros, earthbound, vice city and san Andreas being games I treasure and revisit every few years but I'm not going back to play a game designed to keep me engaged for months on end because it's also designed to milk my wallet in most cases.

Build a great game that people love make it playable offline and ask does it matter if the concurrent player count is under 100 a year post launch more often that not it doesn't

The price of entry is too high to take chances like I used to. Was looking at V Rising and that ranges from $50-$130 CAD. That’s a lot for an indie imo. By the time it goes on sale, the player count might be dwindling. But that’s the trade-off, I guess.

I’m glad my preference is single player experiences, Indie devs got me covered 👊🏻

Pretty good list. Botany Manor would be the newest addition that encapsulates that title.
