“Gay Space Marines, Industry’s biggest problem” says Mafia II’s senior producer

Gamersmint : The biggest problem that the games industry suffers from right now? No, it’s not the menace of piracy or a second hand games market! It’s the industry’s obsession with…ermm, Gay Space Marines ( O_O). That’s what Mafia II’s senior producer thinks so atleast.

of Halo's success, too bad Mafia II can never do aswell as this game does, and NO neither Noble 6 and nor his teammates are gay, if he's reffering to them. :|

noble 6, added one by mistake

LtSkittles5027d ago

Just didn't want you to look stupid

ExplosionSauce5027d ago

I thought it was hilarious xD

You're exactly right, Cyborg. People have to realize that when a Halo game launches, it's going to take all the attention from whatever other games are launching at that time. When a Halo game comes out, it's an event unto itself. People can say what they want to about the series, but nothing will take away its incredible success. The only thing that can hurt it in the foreseeable future is if 343 Studios is bad at making Halo games. I'm pretty sure MS has enough money to hire some great talent, so here's hoping for its continued success.

I agree, he is jealous, even if he does not outwardly admit it....mafia two was ok, but a gta clone at the end of the day.

raztad5027d ago

Mafia 2 is totally no a clone of GTA. In fact I think it got some bad reviews because game was pretty much linear and didnt follow GTA footsteps.

GuruStarr785027d ago

@raztad:

ur right, it was way too linear, but the prison level alone made it shine...

DatNJDom815027d ago

He got a point. First person games are WAY OVERSATURATED.

StanLee5027d ago (Edited 5027d ago )

It's not oversaturation if the games are successful and the genre is evolving. Look at games like Borderlands and Fallout which have had great success and no one really classifies them as FPSs. First person is just the perspective from which the narrative and gameplay unfolds. The industry only responds to what consumers demand and it's a copy cat industry. When consumers start showing that they've grown weary of the genre, you'll see publishers invest elsewhere. But for the success of Call of Duty and Halo, other FPSs have had middling success and others have flatly failed commercially while still being well received critically; The Darkness immediately comes to mind. Fact is, if you make a great game and a publisher puts the marketing dollars behind the project and make people aware of it, it will be successful, regardless of genre.

pustulio5027d ago

Oh yeah they are way too much FPSs but hey KZ3 is coming out...

Wait, whats that? FPS are the shit now?

-Blam!-ing Hypocrites.

Aaroncls75027d ago

I think he meant Starship Troopers, you know cuz of the multisex showers...

KillerBBs5027d ago

this artical can say Gay Space Marines but when i do it, I get reported.

RememberThe3575027d ago

I'd really actually like to know that myself.

Sarcasm5027d ago

To be fair, Master Chief was locked up in a simulated closet. :)

pimpmaster5027d ago (Edited 5027d ago )

its just called giving a cuality product. just look at the top marine games, they all either have single player, multiplayer, coop and or have over 40 hours of play time. alot of replayability and gaming out of your 60$, where as mafia 2 is just a 11 hour game(i beat it in 11 hours) with no online/ coop/ or any replayability other than dragging through the game again for collctibles. im tired of the marine game too but good games with value tend to revolve around a simple mechanic like killing things over and over/

Shepherd 2145027d ago (Edited 5027d ago )

I would be a bit disappointed if i wasnt lucky enough to be a dev of Halo or Killzone. I thought Mafia II was bleh.

Hey, maybe someone should ask him if the industry suffers because people like hime let bad dev companies put shoddy ports on the PS3. Ahem, Mafia II?

I think people like him, being a Senior Producer and all, should be worried about more than say that great games have "Gay Space Marines".

Shepherd 2145026d ago (Edited 5026d ago )

Are you stupid enough to think that this dev isnt thinking AT ALL about the famous "Space Marine" who has been the mascot for Microsoft's console for almost ten years?

Give me a break.

Oldsnake0075027d ago

lol are you stupid ? where the hell did he mentioned Halo.

oh I understand

Gay space marine = Halo

You just confirmed that .

Man In Black5026d ago

Is greedy fucktard producers like him who have games like Mafia 2 cut up into pieces, then released as DLC. Jimmy's Vendetta seems to consist of sidemissions cut from the main game, and Jimmy himself has Vito's body, except with a slaphead pasted on top.

SkylineR5026d ago (Edited 5026d ago )

Why do people think he's referring to Master Chief and Co.? They're hardly the ones to blame for "gay space marines.

Doomguy is the original Space Marine. Blame him. :p

I think chopping games to pieces for DLC is the big problem.

JoySticksFTW5027d ago (Edited 5027d ago )

This is my biggest problem this gen

Second is devs trying to make multiplats uniform without taking advantage of what each system excels at

Third is Trolls posing as "reputable" gaming media

Brklynty15027d ago

Because DVD9 was the best choice this gen..../s
