he killed the command and conquere franchise... he made a high budget game, mostly forgotten, at the time the other developers came out with halo, portal and games that have more sequals and are thriving. so this is the guy to blame for the garbage that came out.
tiberium wars i had the misfortune to play, it had smaller maps, less troop options. basically tried hypnotising people with graphics, to cover for bad and lacking content. i litterally played that game only 5 times... generals. redalert 2 and tiberium sun... i pretty much melted them copies playing it hundreds of times... tiberium wars was obnoxious they created floating battleships the other sides couldnt counter. a litteral i win button.
now i seen the red alert 3 previews, but after playing tiberium wars and seeing what they did to C&C i wouldnt hand them 50 dollars and say lets see how dissapointing you can make a game that once was good. the command and conquere franchise is toasted, in large part due to this guy. seriously if he makes another command and conquere game it would save everyone time if he put a logo of command and conqure on a cup, sealed inside it is raw sewerage. because thats what your putting in your computer.
maybe the stress was to high on him taking a well established thriving franchise. they had counterstrike, redalert 2, dune, westwood studios was building up faster, diversifying. they hand it to electronic arts and they flushed it all down the toilet.
he took a working formula and dumbed it down seeking a bigger audience, that audience never came and lost the one he had.
seriously i loved west wood games and played hundreds and probably thousands of hours on them, and he messed it all up. so not going easy on this guy. he took the best strategy franchise and tried turning it into something like leapfrog or a toddler game. i see him as a failed game developer, that better not make a game for black isle studios, and rather he should go ruin some other franchises that i dont play.
