since when is a debate on a forum a "crusade"? Do you have to compare any giver of dissent with the knight's templar? Is any response to this that isn't "OMG GO INAFUNE" a slight?
it isn't on his list of games because the "head of R&D" for the company as a whole is not always given such credit. But again, the man said himself
that he oversaw every game that was made
and greenlit between being promoted and when he left.
Why am I saying this? Because this game is being sold on the not necessarily directly stated but suggested notion that he is taking something back. That "only the creator does it right", while, in the past, when he had the power to do so, he took a work in a direction that was anti-thetical to its roots, while saying their original forms were lacking.
That they'd have to be "desperate" to make sequels to them, games that were critically acclaimed, when it'd be far classier to say, "You know, those were good games, but it appears they didn't meet the neccessary results." I'm saying this because franchises I and my friends enjoyed and cared about were put into a similar state as Mega Man by Keiji Inafune.
But you know what? Time heals all wounds, and work ultimately stands on its own. I've seen creators I dislike produce good results. If he can make Mighty No. 9 into a great game, I'll give it the credit it's due. It may even be likely.
But that doesn't change the past, and I won't forget. I won't forget what Capcom did alone that ticked me off, either. They've both
burned me, even when they weren't associated with one another. So yeah, they're both in the same standing to me, which is "tenuous".
