Is Peter Molyneux's Reputation Irreparably Tarnished?

Godus has re-emerged as Godus War on Steam's Early Access, but this article questions whether it's too late for Molyneux to stage a comeback at this point.

It already is too late. He constantly lies and fails to implement all the features he boasts about on his games.

The guy seems to have an issue with failing to deliver on his promise when it comes to software

DigitalRaptor3086d ago (Edited 3086d ago )

A visionary. A man of passion. I respect that.

But also the one individual who made too many promises that him and his team could not deliver. I feel bad for him, but he kinda brought it on himself over the years, and did not learn from his mistakes.

Bimkoblerutso3086d ago

I really don't think he even deserves the respect of being called a visionary.

As it turns out, "delusional" is a much better word to describe the man.

DigitalRaptor3085d ago (Edited 3085d ago )

Completely disagree.

Nowadays, he is not a visionary, but he pioneered some really cool concepts back in the day and had charm to his words that followed through and delivered on them in pretty great ways. He simply got carried away as time went on with his excitement for concepts he thought would lead the way, and would be conceivable on the budget and time constraints his team were given.

Populous was the only game that could really be considered "visionary," and even then, despite what many people claim, at it's core it was still just an evolution of similar games that came before it.

In fact the more "visionary" the man got in his career, the more ridiculous and completely unrealistic his promises became...hence...delusional.

Either way, though, I don't mean to belittle the quality of his earlier work. I just meant to suggest that even fools get lucky every now and then.

He's sort of like the George Lucas of the video game industry, if you ask me.

This guy over promises and under delivers. I don't care how good his past games were. He hasn't done anything as of late to make me excited even if he did announce a new project.

He constatnly over sells EVERYTHING and ehen the games don't turn out the way he promised, it's everyone else's fault.

Misleader of all time?

It’s between him and Phil. I’d vote Phil

"It’s between him and Phil. I’d vote Phil"

If Phil were the man that made my life miserable, I would vote for him as well.

Regarding the topic, it could be both Peter and Phil working together.

M.O.A.T takes place in Albion, so it´s possible that Pete is working on new partnership with Xbox, which imo, is nothing but great news!

What exactly has Phil mislead about? I can’t wait to hear the verbal diarrhea you come with.

His name is still used as a selling point for new games? Seriously?

jznrpg276d ago

If anyone knows his name you have to be extremely skeptical that what he delivers will be anything like what he says it would be and that’s best case scenario.

RaiderNation276d ago

He's like the "Tom Clancy" of video games.

InUrFoxHole276d ago

Lol what the hell man?!?!?

Number1TailzFan276d ago

I remember Black & White (PC) but other than that I can only think of Fable, B&W was a pretty cool game tho at the time.
