You can slice him, you can dice him, but the smed man just keeps on coming.

Even through his faults the games he has worked on are still extremely popular. Don't know much about the guy or what he has done but the games he has worked on are pretty darn good. Hopefully he does better with Amazon.

I dont like the guy.  He was instrumental in turning MMOs into carebear amusement park rides.  Most of the audience doesnt like PvP ... get rid of it.  The game is too hard ... make it easier.  Bright lights, pretty pictures and little "DING" sound that you fiend for.

 

All of things are important to bring carebears to the game. What is the point if you dont let me hunt them and if they cant QQ on the forums.

I find this interesting cause I felt like a lot of the pixelmage developers were perhaps antiquated and kind of went back to making the kind of game they knew how to make.

Agreed, I used to be a huge SOE fanboy (hell, I just downloaded and played Project 1999 for 3 hours today). SWG -> CU and SWG -> NGE and EQ2 crafting updates were all terrible decisions. Not sure if we can blame it all on him though.

Never played his early MMOs. I see he's had success in recent times with h1z1 and ps2 tho. I never played h1z1 because I'm really not into the direction of taking the survival genre and shrinking it into a tiny arena at the end. PS2 I only played for a couple hours and I didn't like the gunplay. I blew up some tanks and then quit. Heroes and Generals is actually the better war game imo. I'm shocked a little that amazon grabbed him although I'm not surprised amazon is going after names in the industry because they are new and have $$$. Amazon might be able to afford some fancy tech and convenience but can they actually produce a game I don't know. I was disappointed to find out "new world" is taking part in colonial times which i think makes it very niche.
