Or prehaps we have too many fanboys jumping to conclusions too many times.
Sega has n’t revealed the main bulk of games that they will release this and the following years yet people are UNFAIRLY writing them off.
How many companies do you know that has produced killer app titles for a failing machine for nearly three years and CONTINUE that momentum?
No one can not even Nintendo. I think a lot of Sega fans have been spoiled during the DC era that they expect a great title from Sega ALL the time.
The titles from Neo Sega since 2001 have been at best average. That’s it.
Not crap ,not dire just average. I’ve played average Sega games great Sega games and classic Sega games and even poor Sega games since playing video games in general.
I remember back in the megadrive era Sega released some pretty average
games like GALAXY FORCE 2 to fill the gap until their big guns came about.
This is essentially happening here.
Sega has revealed tidbits of games to come and every fanboy out there has jumped the gun about the quality of these titles. SHENMUE ONLINE and SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG has come under very harsh criticisim of late.
I remember that Nintendo had a dip period in the N64. Most of the games they made themselves were not considered at the time to be the of the standard Nintendo quality that fans were use to up to that point.
With several exceptions the N64 had harsher treatment than the DC did.
Yet Nintendo has bounced back since that period. Yet they still have naysayers criticise the NGC which is a decent game system. Were living in an age where no matter if the criticisim is justified or not ,people are taking potshots at companies like Sega for the sake of it like Penny Arcade.
Criticisims on games like SHINING FORCE NEO are justified because it has strayed off it’s SRPG roots. But slagging off a game which is brand new like SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG is uncalled for when no one has played the bloody thing yet and then levelling it against the whole company that they have lost their way is ridiculous.
NO ONE here has played a SHITE Sega game since 2001 to now. The majority of the games they have released have been good games and better than any of the shit that EA chucks out.
It comes down to this. Do you have faith in Sega as good game producers?
And this is what counts. I’m not talking about the politics of not releasing the full version of SF3(Which seems likely now) or funking things up or not I’m talking about what matters, the bottom line,the games. Do you honestly believe that Sega CANNOT produce a killer app title again? Does anyone believe that they cannot produce a great game anymore?
Let’s think about that before we all start claiming PA’s nonesense rant as being the truth.
