Rated 1 / 5 stars

It's hard for me to write a postive review for a movie when in this movie the creators make fun of pretty much all my favorite video games.

Some of it is a little bit insightful yeah, but overall I found it sort of pessimistic, that gaming is going into decline. Which it obviously isn't. At the time I'm writing this GTA 5 has just came out. And just it game alone has made more than a billion dollars for Rockstar so far. That's a lot of money. More than the yearly GDP for some 3rd world countries. Not bad for a game series doomed to being a traffic jam simulator.

Thinking about this movie, I kinda get pissed off. Just little things. Like how in it they say Metal Gear Solid has gone downhill since the first game. Bullshit. MGS2 and MGS3 were amazing games. They are amazing games. And the MGS5 we are gonna get and the one portrayed in this video are worlds apart.

It just comes across to me as some british guys making commentary about something they don't fully understand. Which is video games.

Maybe I'm taking this video a little bit too seriously.
But even so, taken seriously or not I still don't like it.

1 star, only because Egoraptor had a part in making this video.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Even with this video being almost a decade old, it still rings true today...and unfortunately will probably still be doing so years from now unless these developers start making games with REAL innovation and gameplay instead of relying on souped-up graphics all the time. Game developers that I have grown up with are either defunct or, for the ones that are still around, are either letting their leading/popular brands go to waste somehow (Squeenix, Capcom), or are over-milking said brands without much innovation behind it (almost all CoD and MW games fall under this for me).

A long-running video game franchise is just like a long-running TV series, and thus can be treated as such. If you're having THAT much trouble coming up with creative ideas, then either put it on hiatus or cancel it.

So basically it's not the decline of video gaming as it is the decline of innovation by developers. But I still agree with ending a series. Laughed so hard at the Final Fantasy part! Awesome!
