Author Writes: The video game industry can be brutal at times, but there are still some tremendous success stories out there, from games that everyone thought would fail.
l mean..ffxiv did flop. so hard the dev team went 'no. were not fucking delivering this hot garbage as an entry to ff series!" and went full ham. giving us the glorious FF:xiv realm reborn.
Yeah ffxiv is literally had to go and phoenix itself to be how good it is now.
Actually, SE said no, and fired the creative director, and much of the original team. It was Yoshi P and his hand picked team that not only made the game free to play for the first almost year, but redesigned the entire game (including graphics engine), and turned it into the amazing masterpiece it is now.
Goddamn Twinfinite you guys always come up with interesting list but then you make em multi page.
Fortnite did flop. It wasn't until they straight up ripped off another mode from a different game that anyone cared.
Yeah, Save the World flopped hard. No one plays it. It was supposed to be free too.
You're out of touch if you thought Nier: Automata was going to be a flop and didn't see it performing well critically and commercially.
Indeed. As far as developers go, Platinum has one of the most impressive records of them all.
I think they're just trying to point out that the first flopped hard, and that due to that, this game had almost nothing going for it except that Platinum was working on it. Which alone is a HUGE deal.
me personally, i am surprised everytime the next contentless lootershooter gets bought like mad.
Uh... people clearly like looter shooter games. Or just loot whore style games in general.
