I have no faith in the upcoming Tomb Raider game. In my humble opinion it's already doomed from the moment they turned Lara into a fragile oh-protect-me-from-danger-you-hunky-player-you female character.
When it tanks I want to see what SE's excuse will be.



The old Lara Croft had the personality of a tree. This isn't the 90's anymore where people didn't care about plot or characters in their action games. Lara needs to have a personality this time, making her weak and her improving to be tougher as a persona is an easy way to sympathize for her and create respect as well as engage the player in a round character


becuse that line of thinking worked so well with metroid other M

o wait not it didnt its viewed by most fans as the worst metroid game ever


That's because neither Ninja Theory or Nintendo are good at writing. Other M's story was embarrassingly terrible

There's so much truth in this topic.

15 years ago, Square was on top of the world. Now they're just pathetic.


Damn ive never heard anything sound so right. I was there 15+ years ago when Square was tearing it up!

Einhander

Brave Fencer Musashi

Bushido Blade

Final Fantasy 7

Ehrgeiz

Parasite Eve

And thats just the latter 90's!!

- don't give fans what they want
- give random iPhone players ports and remakes
- blame fans for not buying games


Listening to fans half the time is a mistake. Look at Sega with Sonic.


But SEGA did listen, and redeemed themselves with Colors and Generations.


They should listen more and bring VC3 over.


Sales were part of the reason they didn't localize it.

They weren't going to take that risk on an almost dead portable too.

You have some good tastes sir.

May I add some more hidden gems?

Chrono Cross (probably the greatest game of that gen for me)

Threads of Fate

Front Mission 3

Final Fantasy Tactics

Vagrant Story

SE is just a scrap of what Square used to be. Monolith is soon going to become the new Square in this gen at the current rate.

Team Ninja did Other M. Ninja Theory are the ones who did Heavenly Sword(s), Enslaved, and DmC.

Well then let's look at Team Ninja's experience with games, Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive. A fighting game and a technical hack and slash.

...what was Nintendo thinking?!? Team Ninja's previous games are nothing like Metroid, why did Nintendo think they could handle a shooter or even a plot?

Sad part is, they just did the gameplay. Sakamoto is the one who actually did the story for Other M.

Capcom level trolling.

You make it sound like Capcom's problem hasn't been listening to the fans.

"WE WANT MORE DLC!" (and everyone knows how Capcom does DLC).

Capcom delivers with SF4.

"NO MORE DISC BASED UPGRADES! DLC ONLY!" (and again, everyone knows how Capcom does DLC)

Capcom delivers with SFxTK.

Casual players cry "SAGAT IS TOO STRONG, MAKE HIM WEAKER!" despite the fact that Sagat never won a single major tournament.

Capcom delivers, makes Sagat so bad that tournament players have to drop him to stand a chance.

These are all instances of Capcom listening to the fans and getting backlash for it.
