    Meat heads and meat plots

    Idk it always seems as though there is someone meat-based
    in the way of my progression to the next level.

    Whenever I get accepted into a new commission or studio job
    there is someone in the studio who doesn't think I can do anything
    and I always prove them wrong.

    Honestly these gun based "manly" people seem to have been the bane
    of my existence even my early years; "You can't like that, it's a baby game
    You should play DOOM/Halo/KOTOR" always jeering.

    Honestly if the 90's to 00's popularity shift didn't happen
    I'd be a super star working on some top tier platformers/rpgs
    and the meatheads would be out of luck.

    What are your sentiments on this? Are meat types gaining to much control and ruining everything
    for folks who aren't meat based? Help me out cartoon fellows.

    One night my dad called me aside and put his hand on my shoulder, stared
    at me for like 10 seconds straight and then said those words.

    Then he said he was going out for a pack of smokes and never came back!

    I was going to support this idea then I realised that I am largely meat based.

    I cannot betray my meat / water / carbon brothers.

    Those meat heads had to have had the same type of complaints back in the platformer days.

    Think of it this way, with less saturation in a genre there's more room for the tiny few that ARE made to be really good. Rayman Origins, Super Meat Boy (heh), 'Splosion Man...

    Back in when platformers were huge, that made room for games like Bubsy 3D, Awesome Possum, and Lester the Unlikely.

    Psychotime-

    Finally another cartoon fellow!!!!!

    It just seems as though all the all the hype is going to these games and that is no good.
    It's giving a bad name to game design, destroying the imagination of the youth, causing parents
    groups to outrage and creating a hateful gaming subculture.

    I hear ya on less saturation in the market; but I think it is screwing with my paper; this is no good..
    When I first graduated I was about to be admitted into a good studio, but get instantly rejected when
    it was run under new management I.E. shooter meat types.

    Sometimes I wonder if I should have been directly in the gameart major
    (choose media arts because it would give me a broaderskillset)
    or I should have been an animator instead of a 3D modeler character modeler.

    But I love to make characters, this is a pickle

    You remind me of those guys who spend their wholes lives complaining that girls will only date assholes, unable to realize that the problem might not be the girls.

    Meat Head = Narcissism and God's gift to mankind.....maybe?

    Generally, lacks foresight and blames others for problems they conjure up.

    Most of the time their creativity is about as smooth as drinking donkey urine.

    There's something even worse than that these days: Zynga style "free" games and the whole concept of DLCs

Like how the (old) Final Fantasy games, 7 and 8 in particular, would ask you if you don't know the mechanics, and move on if you said "yes, I already know". Then after your first mission (in case you really just fudged your way through) there's an area at your home base that has computers/homeless people/whatever that can tell you any mechanic you might have questions about.

    But the CRPG genre has always needed this. Only now have other genres gotten complicated.

    Hell, most games these days don't even make instruction booklets! Just a 3 page pamphlet, tops!

    This is the most awesomest story about meat you will ever read.

    I swear.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    are you serious? does the word minecraft ring a bell? finally we re in an age again where good ideas can win, and thanks to kickstarter probably get a funding. its not like only big studios do the games anymore, or that you have to have your marketing plan reviewed by cash-business jerks.
    big studios though operate differently... they just go for what is proven to sell... that in itself basically excludes everything new and inovative.

    Not a parody, but an actual video talking about the Megaman series and how you can teach players the controls through gameplay without the need for "press X to jump" pop-ups. Quite long but interesting if you're into game design. NSFW language.

    I probably never would have bothered with that if it that video was posted somewhere else. I grew out of Egoraptor after I finished high school. He's just annoying to me, now.

    That is a good video, though. And he's right.

    X2 is the best game of the series, though.

    Blasphemy. X1 forever.
    Though I'm biased because it was one of the first SNES games I had when I was a kid and I'd play it until the point I could speed run god knows how fast.
