@ayachan His thesis reeks of that of a typical gamer who feeds on Twitter or the YouTube comments section judging by his lack of understanding technical issues from the use of “marketing strategy” alone. But the concern remains the same. Nintendo just needs to open up about this issue. But I fear they’ll just take the usual route of “saving face” like much of Japanese business.
I'd like to see him get 30 years. This is unforgivable conduct and he is an a**hole. I want to see his name dragged through the mud for what he's done to the dozens of women who dealt with him.
Next on the chopping block (I hope) would be the likes of Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein, John Lasseter, Matt Lauer and more. Let's hold these a**holes to account!! #MeToo
@ayachan @starbreaker @Yuki_G_t9tK Oh of course! But I think it becomes much more toxic when this attitude gets carried over to studying game design. Video games have never existed in vacuum and that's true of every era. Otherwise, you get wannabe developers going "imma gonna make the next Call of Duty" and not improving upon what was already there.
@ayachan @starbreaker @Yuki_G_t9tK I think one unintentional yet dangerous consequence of this fragmentation is that it would encourage younger gamers to not delve into the more important (and influential) titles when studying game design. The knowledge of how systems and game mechanics evolve and every game has influenced one another in some form.
