Now that's a misleading title. Thought this was surely about a Clifford the Big Red Dog/God of War crossover.

I pretty much entirely agree with what Mr. Blezinski says here.

Eventually, game publishers will, in the interest of making a buck, cross a line that you will not accept, in that case don't support whatever it is with your money. When they've crossed that line where enough people don't like whatever it is that whatever it is no longer brings in more money for the company, they will stop. There is no prior point at which they will stop, no matter how mad you get.

"DLC" or "Microtransactions" are not a moral issue. Games are toys. If your toy isn't fun enough, or costs too much money, or whatever, that's not a moral issue. Don't buy the toy that sucks, buy the toy that doesn't suck. There's lots of fun things to do with your money, and some of them aren't even video games at all.

Is it sad I thought the same thing?

Cliffy B can make some good points but he is so full of himself it's hard to even read half of what he writes.

Cliffy B really needs to learn how to keep his mouth shut.

No. Quite the contrary. It's inspirational. We had this same thought because we were meant to work together to make such a game exist.

...or maybe it is sad. Either way, we need more crossover games. Now that Disney owns Marvel and Star Wars, there should be a Kingdom Hearts game that solely mingles in those two universes. You know you want it.

I think a quite salient point Mr. Blezinski raises is that we are the vocal minority. Not only are we the minority, we are extremely vocal. Gamers complain about *everything* (which is not to say that every gamer complains about everything.) We complain that Mass Effect 3's ending is too sad. We complain that Dante's hair is the wrong color in DMC. We complain that Dead Space 3 has microtransactions, even though we don't really have any interest in using them and they're hardly a new thing in AAA games. We complain that the Catwoman content in Arkham City is DLC even though it's free with purchase and we were planning on buying the game new anyway. You can go on and on like this.

If you were an executive at a video game company, would you listen to any of us? At all?

Gamers are terrible at putting thing in perspective, prioritizing, and explaining themselves well. Instead there's just so much rage, over everything.

Like it or not, we have no credibility. We can't change the industry by being happy or angry, we can only change the industry by buying or not-buying things.

You know, for whatever people think of Cliff as a personality, he's making some decent points, and after working with Epic for so long, you can't say he doesn't have a clue.
