What the hell happened to Insomniac?

Weren't they always sub-par?

No and I still don't think they are now either.

Fair enough, I just don't think any of their games are amazing or something I would remotely recommend to anyone as something that they should play.
The console with the greater spec generally loses.

When was Insomniac ever a great company ?
I remember them back on the PS1, and they had the occasional good game, but they also had the occasional pile of poop.
It seems like they got a lot of undeserved praise simply by being a PS3 exclusive Developer.
But now that they aren't an exclusive Developer anymore, they all of a sudden have become "sub-par"...
They never were all that great.
Even the Resistance series (as good as they are) were nothing special or exceptional.

They are as generic a company as you can get.
Not great, but not bad either.

It is all opinion in the end

Riptos Rage is one of my fave games of all time, along with Ratchet 1- 3 and A Crack in Time. So to me, Insomniac is amazing. They have definitely faltered on some occasions, but that doesn't take away from them making more than a couple of my fave games ever. I think their talent shows in these games

To each their own
PS3 without Immersion lacks Rumble and PS3 without Rumble lacks Immersion. Finally Sony did the right thing
