I think he's an arrogant dick, to be honest.
"SpikeSpiegel said:Well, I can't say I feel the same way. ;-)"TheGTAvaccine said:Well one, Epic ditching PC was lame, I hate Gears of War, and he just parades around like a pompous asshole. He's the only man in the gaming industry that I dislike."I personally cant stand him.Why?
"I like Cliff, he's good at explaining things and making it sound fun, without being crazy enthusiastic or sugar coating things with bullcrap. He's respectable."Quoted for truth. I do not think he is the "best" game designer, but I personally think he is "one of" the best.
"I like Cliff, he's good at explaining things and making it sound fun, without being crazy enthusiastic or sugar coating things with bullcrap. He's respectable.
Awww heck, what's soo wrong about Peter Molyneux? :P
Anyways, he's no where near the top.
"He's a talented guy......but i had to laugh when i read an interveiw of his,claiming he dosen't play Halo3 online because of all the abusive youngsters,he's obviously never played GOW on xboxlive.thats a gd point the bcoz i all ways find gears is way more abusive than halo 3
but yeah he is very gd one but not the best just yet
"Cliffy B. is a mastermind (we all know that) ,but do you think he is the best game designer in gaming?
Lmao hell no, there are far better and more experienced then him in this industry. He seems like a cool/nice guy though, just a little too big headed about his own games.
Don't get me wrong his games are good but tend to lack anything imaginative, chainsaw bayonet is hardly something imaginative.
Peter Molyneux is better but he tends to be a lot of talk, resulting in games that people expect more than they get. Even if what they get is well tuned and great.
Fumito Ueda is very good in my opinion (Shadow of the Colossus and ICO), his games have a few gameplay issues but are very imaginative.
Will Wright has also done some amazing things.
By the way, I dunno why that Cliffy part is bolded, I can't unbold it..... : )
"No, especially after he admitted taking a lot of inspiration from kill .switch in regards to GoW. "Not that I have a problem with saying Cliff Bleszinski isn't the best (I agree with you on that part), but why would him admitting his influences make him less of a designer? The fact that he openingly admits where some of the ideas actually impresses me more. Lots of designers act as if nothing came before them. And just because someone else did it before doesn't make the new thing less impressive. Konami made music instrument games before Harmonix created Guitar Hero/Rock Band. But Harmonix still deserves a great deal of credit for bring those games to the mass level of popularity they now enjoy. Yes kill.switch has similar third-person "stick to cover" gameplay (and damn good game play at that). But it is a game that mostly got lost in the PS2 shuffle. GoW took that gameplay and made it mainstream, such the controls and gameplay in other games is refered to as "GoW" style.
