A few weeks ago my wife and I were sitting outside on the deck contemplating our next trip, and we saw this guy. This guy was a hiker who had decided to hike out of his comfort zone and hike to the top of a tall hill. This is what he saw when he got to the top of the hill.
The problem with that scene is that it makes the whole thing feel like it’s a bad video game. I want to know what happened to the person who made it. Was he just lying down to die? Was he a complete idiot? Was he trying to get a little bit of exercise? Was he just doing it for fun? I don’t understand why people would do something like that.
The reason I want to know is that the trailer looks like it wasn’t written by anyone after all.
I suppose the problem is that when the game starts, you don’t see anything, you just play. So the trailer looks like it was written by someone who couldnt even make a single decent scene in a video game. The question is why did they start the game off this way.
Well, the good news is Arkane Studios is aware of the issue and so is EA. The more bad news is that it is not EA’s fault. EA is not the game’s developer. They did not approve the game’s story and development. Their hands are tied by their publisher, who is not the game’s publisher. And if you want to know what kind of developer’s hands are, google “EA developer hands”.
The developers are the people who actually make the game. They are the ones who have to create the game. When I was hired by EA, they asked my opinion on the game’s story and whether it was something I would want to play. I said no. They asked me to do the same in the end. They don’t know anything about the game except that it’s a shooter. They didn’t ask my opinion on the game.
I love this part. It’s the part where I said no to EA and tell them why. It’s the part where they ask me, “Hey, do you want to be a dev?” I said no. I’m not being paid a penny in this scenario. It’s all about the developers. I’m just saying.
The fact is that a lot of the development teams work in a very controlled environment, so they aren’t allowed to have any opinions. That’s why they often develop games to a specific set of specs, so they can’t have any ideas of what to do. In this case, the developer is EA, the people who are hired to make the game. So the team that hired you has no say in the development of the game. The developers want to make the game as great as possible.
