I just realized that if the combine never existed in the half life universe then humanity would've conquered xen immediately beginning the mass slaughter and testing of the native life and world of xen only to then build more portals to other dimensions and universes ultimately becoming the next combine, what are the chances that the half life games take place in a universe where this actually did happen and were playing as a Gordon Freeman in a human timeline where humanity found better portal tech long before the black mesa facility would

>as though they were different from other video game companies
as much as gabe has engaged in the practices of other vidya corps the independent status is a relevant distinction. I have doubts a publicly traded valve would have been given enough license to pursue the VR flight of fancy to the extent gabe has.

it's not technically HL3 no, but it's a new AAA hl game. It'd be dumb for that not to change your expectations of 3's status.

This is a good point. There's often too much reductiveness about how capitalists work, but in reality their specific situation matters a lot. Valve not being publicly traded probably has made a big difference in their business practices since they have no shareholders to answer to, and the porkies who own the thing have some involvement (in theory) in developing software etc.

However, Valve kind of led the way on bullshit microtransactions with the TF2 hats and loot crates.

Aka in other words the past 12 years the only half life triple aka game they made was a vr title when they could have easily spent that time making half life 3

Crash Twinsanity was one of the most chad franchise games. I'd love to be proven wrong.

Here's a quick rundown:
>pushed Crash Bandicoot platformer games out of the stale teleport-to-pathway-with-boxes-25-times formula to a more open world adventure comedy
>gave Neo Cortex a personality
>gave Neo Cortex a relative even if she was drafted and technically premiered earlier
>in-jokes from previous games
>in-jokes from other franchise
>in-jokes from the production team
>every single aspect of the Moulin Cortex joke
>trailer full of uncomfortable spanking footage
>Cortex just shoots a bunch of fuckers in cutscenes whenever things get dull
>broken as fuck release just makes it more challenging
>not being able to finish production of the game just adds more secret lore, has a whole website about it
>'the entire soundtrack is acapella, from classical orchestra remixes to grungy metal, because why the fuck not

Crash is an underrated (underappreciated?) franchise in general

It went on a 4 game run (Crash 1-2, Warped and Wrath of Cortex) of very enjoyable games. Has several racing games that are fun, and to top it off a fun cast. I'm surprised it doesn't have more attention, though when crash came back a few years ago there was a lot of hype.

It was famous for a reason, and I feel part of that requires background/context to appreciate; you're not going to tell a kid today that Crash Bandicoot is on the cutting edge of graphics, or creating a novel cartoony feel in games. Full disclosure: I haven't played any of the post-Tag-Team Racing games, but it feel like it's right now recycling classic titles (not a bad thing itself) and straying further from the things that made it a standout franchise. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Franchises themselves don't really appeal to me too much as I know how hit-and-miss they can be, and it feels like many are '[x] BUT WITH CHARACTER [Y]!' or infinite sequel milking syndrome when I'm not obsessed with the character enough to care.

Yea I didn't mean to insinuate it wasn't ever famous or anything, just that the lack of attention now is a bit surprising and sad.

Your mention about context is most likely it, new gamers don't know that Crash came during the heyday of platformers/Mascot platformers/cartoonish platformers so a part of it's charm is missing, especially now with the open world and high speed fps craze. It really sucks, mostly because I like platformers a lot and they are now really relegated to more indie titles

I cannot not say if you are right or wrong myself, but i've played the most recent crash racing game (Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled) and it was insanely fun. I have Mario Kart 8 and the couple of games of crash I played blew it out of the water in the entertaining department but nobody plays it from what I see.

Another reason for crash's decline outside of not having a mainline game between 2008-2020 is that the remake trilogy game out to mixed reception. It seems like most people liked it however some mechanical issues such as platforming were messed up, causing people to not like it since it was hard to play as if you could slip off a box and die.

The biggest aspect for me with certain franchises is that outside one specific one, you don't really find that feel in the other games in the same genre. I love Metroid and Castlevania, but these other Metroidvanias people love to bring up when recommending them DO NOT feel as good as Castlevania or super metroid. I'm playing axiom verge and while it's a decent game, it just does not feel as good as metroid. And I hate when people recommend Hollow Knight to those who want to play a game similar to castlevania. It looks nothing like Castlevania, it has a completely different look and style, and a whole bunch of shit that doesn't mesh withPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I think Wright just overshot massively. It happens.
As hyped as I was for this game as a kid I now think it was a bit of a dumb idea anyway. Five games in one, of course each one is going to end up underdeveloped. Even in the original plans the connection between each state was too thin to really work. But maybe you could make something interesting with this kind of huge temporal scope but with more focused gameplay.
