Honestly I have to say thank you for that disturbing imagery at the end of the video but I digress. You have gone and summed up everything that the industry keeps saying. Its graphics that make games. We need more graphics to make better games. If graphics make the game can someone tell me why one of my favorite games this gen was Dragon Age Origins? Or Why I enjoyed Rainbow 6 Vegas 1 and 2 so much as well as Ghost Recon Future solider. Do they really think we are dumb enough to keep going down this road where we need better graphics to get immersed in the game? If anything when the graphics get too close to reality its almost off putting it suspends the feeling of hey I'm invincible and I just killed an entire group of peasants who attacked me for no reason. It then turns into well.... I just killed my Neighbor Steve and his children I'm a horrible person...
To be honest, I found this episode a bit lacking. It was a nice parody, yes, but there was no punch-line, no argument to be made... it's just the same mindless shit the whole internet seems to churn out whenever David Cage shows his face somewhere. To sum it up, the hyprocrisy in this entire topic starts to get boring.
David Cage's games are not the greatest thing since sliced bread, but they're not bad, either. You may not like them, but objectively, they work pretty well and many people enjoyed them. All he said in the PS4 event was that better technology means less limitations for artists, which is true.
Did he say every game character had to look like that demo? No.
Did he say that that was the only way to get emotion across? No.
Those are statements "hardcore" gamers put in his mouth because they don't enjoy his games and for some reason it's currently cool to bash him... but we all know they'll drool over some screenshots of a fancy next-gen game, too.
It was difficult to follow this video because Jim only had a single-sided polygon on his face the whole time, so effectively only had one emotion. Was he sad? As he happy? It's completely ambiguous because I could not see the wrinkles in his face.
Hmm, I liked the subject matter, and it was a good parody, but I think it'd have worked better if perhaps the David Cage mockery was done for maybe the first minute or so, then the rest as normal.
It was good, I just felt the joke was wearing a little thin by the end.
This is basically how I feel about it. I get his point, but he really should have taken it more places instead of going full parody.
That was the funniest episode I've seen of the Jimquisition so far. Thank you and I look forward to more. The accent was perfect. If I had a spare $10 million, I'd give it to Cage under the agreement that he is to try and make a better movie than The Great Train Robbery.
Needed less David Cage impression and more discussing why his views are delusional.
You don't really "get" parody do you?
polygons = emotions
pixels = feels ?
OT: can't comment, really
never played either indigo prophecy nor heavy rain and even less omikron, so... yeah, I don't know whether or not the guy actually knows his shit when it comes to emotions and such
except for the "you gotta have polygons to properly show emotions", that's bullshit
Best Jim Sterling video imo. My sides hurt from laughing!
