I laughed my ass off when I saw this. For those of you who aren’t in the know, let me explain: Activision Blizzard are the same people who ran Guitar Hero into the ground, had their entire Call of Duty staff leave because they refused to pay them what they were due after making the most profitable video game of all time, and is run by the Devil, currently known on this plane of existence as Bobby Kotick, a man famous for saying “I’d like to take the fun out of making video games”. To name a few.
You might know Sony from their starring role in the recent The Worst Hacking Incident In Human History That Literally Affected Millions And Made Headline News. After which, by the way, when asked to step down because of just how bad his company fucked up, the CEO basically went “Oh, please.”
Nintendo has spent the better part of 20 years shitting on anyone who wants anything more complex than a coloring book.
Microsoft made a fortune selling a console that WILL break down and shit itself at some point, and makes you pay monthly for a service where you’ll mostly hear 12 year olds scream racial epithets at you.
Square Enix, once the lead purveyors of an entire genre and some of the best games in history, just released a major game that was a long hallway peppered by cutscenes and an attack animation once in a while.
Except for Activision, Capcom is beating every single one of them by double fucking hate digits, and they did so purely through canceling/refusing to make titles their fans want. That is astounding. Their PR person crawled out of his grave, found a gun, and shot himself in the mouth again.
