Wouldn’t a newspaper like the Daily Mail be happy to take any headline as long as it means attention? You said it was a tabloid after all. Being hostile towards games (or anything for that matter) is an easy way to make people pay attention.
That’s awesome! It’s really uplifting to look back and see how even the seemingly smallest decisions end up having such a profound impact on our lives.
This was a fantastic piece. Personally I owe my occupation as a 3D artist in major part to having trouble with some Onimusha 2 puzzles and then finding the Neoseeker forums for answers. This was also my first foray into an Internet forum which meant I wanted to be cool like everyone else and have a sweet banner for my signature. I found the Graphics and Animation part of Neoseeker and had someone make me one. This soon led to me essentially self teaching myself the basics of photoshop (never was big on manuals) and now I do 3D work and post effects/compositing etc.
It’s always fun to share and read origin stories. Life takes some bizarre twists and turns.
The irony of your first three words here…
It’s really easy to find what you want though, and if you’re going to just peruse the store do so through the categorical filters they have at the far left and they surface all the quality apps. Yeah, if you just search a random word and scroll through the results you’re going to get quality results of all types but at that point you’re not looking for anything specifically anyways.
Agreed. I think Kojima has a great deal of respect for great pieces of entertainment. I expect he’ll remain faithful to the general foundation that has been laid and not try to go crazy and make it his own too much by deviating from things in a major way. He seems like the kind of guy that just has too much respect for stuff like that. It’s different with Metal Gear and appropriately so, he should do with it as he pleases and MGS5 is looking incredible.
I’m really glad horror games are making a comeback.
