>"The Internet is the new playground for bullies," according to The Order: 1886 creator Ready at Dawn. In a new interview, the studio talks about the hate-filled nature of the Internet and again speaks out to discuss the ongoing controversy surrounding the length of the upcoming PlayStation 4 game.
>"So our game is extremely focused on the gameplay to the story-telling to pretty much everything," Jan said. "Frequently I'm saying when you play our game you're going to be on a rollercoaster of variety, twists, turns, there's no filler, you're never grinding in our game."
>Jan went on to say that The Order: 1886 has been designed so that players face off against different enemies, using different weapons, frequently through the game. It was important that players don't feel like they're doing the same things over and over again, he said.
>"If you go and you eat a steak, if you pay $100 for a steak that tastes like the best steak you've ever had in your life but it's only 200 grams versus paying the same price for the worst steak you could want--but it's all-you-can-eat," he said. "There's an argument to be made that one is better than the other depending on who you are. If you just want to be full all the time then all-you-can-eat terrible steak, maybe that's for you?"
>"We have this uncanny 'haterade' for our game no matter what," Jan said. "People are looking for something to throw at our game, some reason to hate it. I'm excited to hear what people who have actually played the game think about it, how do they feel about the quality and the quantity? I think by and large that most people are going to be satisfied."
>"I just feel like these days it's so easy to be negative and I think the Internet is the new playground for bullies."
This is the Anthony Burch of video games
Post yfw you will never make The Order 1886
>people criticize Kojima for charging too much for his 2 hour game
>he reduces the price
>people criticize Ready at Dawn for charging 60 bucks for a 5 hour game
>they play the victim card and call everyone bullies
Western devs are a fucking blight
The game itself doesn't look awful imo, the graphics are okay and I'm decent at third person shooters but it's definitely not worth $60 for what it is. I'm just pissed at Ready at Dawn for acting like a bunch of children instead of being professional adults about it who acknowledge that the consumer's opinion isn't ""trolling" or "bullying". Say what you want about Naughty Dog but they're a way more honest Sony dev. Sure, they have their share of bullshots and lies too but when Uncharted 4 couldn't hit 60fps they admitted it would be impossible to do it with the PS4 hardware, they didn't claim it's because 30fps is "more cinematic". They openly admitted that 60fps feels better in Last of Us Remastered. Also, they called out Neogaf as being a shit. That makes them right in my book. But Ready at Dawn on the other hand can go fuck themselves, this is just too much.
Did I miss something since last September? I'm serious, it's like the whole industry has been in a free fall towards shit crater since last year. Now criticism isn't even allowed? The fuck is going on?
>People dont like our movie
It's like watching a train wreck in super slow motion.
>something gets critcism
>creator cries and says people are bullying him
This is why people don't take this industry seriously. This kind of shit would be unacceptable in any other medium.
>Release piece of shit "game"
>Get upset when people call you out on it
>Another wave of "gamers are entitled bigoted mysoginistic idiot rapists holocaust deniers"
Are they seriously comparing their game to a high quality steak while claiming other games are shitty ones?
Come off your fucking high horse bro. There is nothing redeeming or high quality in this "steak" of theirs.
This new trend of insulting the people who criticize the game, including paying customers, is fucking disgusting. This shit would not be accepted in many other industries, the only reason it's allowed is because gaming journalism is corrupt as shit and gaming is full of children who don't know any better.
Wait was this really an interview or Gamespot making shit up?
I have never been able to take journos series because they seem to have some major malfunction when it comes to doing actual interviews.
Regardless though if this is true fuck The Order.
This month is pretty fucking shitty.
So if I say fuck The Order: 1886 I'm left with these choices
Dragon Ball XenoVerse - not even once
Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart - haven't even finished the 1st one.
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode 1 - Fucking hell
Should I just waste my money on micro transactions fucking shit?
What if your game actually sucks?
Why is your game exempt from criticism?
What if you pay for $100 steak and it tastes like shit?
And only lasts15 min?
What about all the people blindly defending your game?
What if your game is a huge step backward?
Fuck Ready at Dawn
Fuck Fan Boys
so let me get this straight
THIS game is the reason why Bloodborne was delayed to March, right?
If you want to make the steak comparison, then the consumer is paying $60 for the atmosphere of the restaurant and plating of the steak, not the taste (gameplay).
And even if this was the greatest steak of all time, I'll take any of the 2nd best steaks that last 10 times as long for the same price, and wait for the inevitable price cut on this steak in a month or two.
>It was important that players don't feel like they're doing the same things over and over again, he said.
So this is where we've ended up.
Calling us entitled used to be enough, but that doesn't really work anymore, I guess. Maybe it's just harder for AAA developers to claim that they tried their best when they produce a 5 hour, totally cinematic, uninteresting, generic piece of trash.
No, now we have to hop on the new bandwagon. Gamers don't merely have entitlement issues, they're just all bullies. Bullies that don't like my game or the design decisions I make. It's one thing to make blanket statements calling people out when you actually HAVE experienced harassment or bullying of some kind, it's still wrong but at least it's coming from somewhere. People, MANY people, having a negative reaction to the lack of heart and effort put into this game is not bullying, it's a valid criticism and every game gets it.
Why do devs go out of the way not to explain themselves so things like this may be more easily understood or even welcomed in the industry, but to make the consumers look like a bunch of whining children if they don't want what they're selling?
>half if game is cut scenes and QTEs
Fucking shills everywhere man.
Say what you want about Ryse being a scripted QTE-fest with cinematics everywhere.
But atleast it was longer than 5 hours.
This is it.
When you release a work publicly you can't just complain that everyone's a bully when they criticize it. That's childish and unhelpful.
Either do something about it constructively or keep fucking quiet.
