Where would Insomniac be without Marvel IP's? They'd be as big as Ratchet and Clank.Insomniac delivered one of the PS5's launch showcase titles - the original being one of the best PS4 titles and probably the best superhero game of all time - and then followed it up with the PS5's graphical showcase, and are now set to deliver a next-gen sequel and a brand new game... and Naughty Dog are delivering unnecessary "remasters", a deeply unnecessary remake, and multiplayer title whose viability as a standalone game is yet to be seen? TLOUIII hasn't been confirmed, and judging from the reception to TLOUII, they'll have an uphill battle getting half their fans back on board. From my perspective, Insomniac are in their prime, and Naughty Dog are stuck in "TLOU land" on projects few people are pining for.
... most of the people who created those IPs are gone. And Hennig and Straley left, leaving Druckman to run the show. His first solo outing at head pissed off about half the players that played it. And their next outing under his direction is multiplayer spin off to that title, and their next after that is apparently a remake of the title that made him known. Personally, I don't think that's a particularly good direction myself, and it leaves me disinterested in their output.... Naughty Dog has delivered nothing but staple, original IPs every single gen... Naughty Dog is also the most important dev for Sony when it comes to raising the bar, setting trends and influencing others.
To that I’d say no. The Last of Us and Uncharted 2 definitely put Naughty Dog’s peak output above Insomniac’s.Has Insomniac ever made a game better than Last of Us 1?
WTF has insomniac done?ND and it ain't even close wtf has Insomniac done? Let's be totally honest they didn't reinvent the wheel making spider man? Infact the combos city has been the same since Activision and beeknox was making Spiderman. Insomniac took the blueprint added a good story and had the advantage of current gen graphics. Now Wolverine is exciting if done right if the game is not rated M why bother making it, same rules applied to the Deadpool movie apply to this Wolverine game. TLOU2 as a piece of software/game is the most impressive thing I've seen besides Flight simulator. ND by a mile then SSM then SP then Insomniac
But, they're both (along with every other PlayStation game) walking simulators and interactive movies.Odfdly enough I finished both spiderman and uncharated 4 last week and I have the same grief with both. The fighting is just too much. too many sh oot ou ts in uncharted and spiderman fights too many people who taked way too much to put them down.
I do want to note that, the higher Druckman gets promoted the less out put Naughty Dog has had. All last gen they had 4 games, one was a remake, one was a dlc spinoff. So two main games. And those IPs were made successful in the PS3 era.
AAA games now take 4-6 years of development on average, and PlayStations get released every 7 years. So every team can only release 1 or two games per generation. So they must have more game tracks working on different games at the same time or to share their work with more studios to release their games faster.Dev times are increasing across the board. Santa Monica had one game last gen. Sucker Punch had two as did Guerrilla. Why do you think this is isolated to ND and Druckmann?
Greatness takes time.Insomniac have shown us TWO AAA games dropping for PS5, with TWO already in the can. Where tf is Naughty Dog? They haven't shown us ANYTHING.
So, you think ND are going to drop all of that THIS gen? LOL. Unless they have dramatically cut scope and hired additional teams, this seems pretty unlikely. Tag on to the HEAVILY rumored bullshit that they are remaking TLoU, "T1X", and that seems even less likely.Greatness takes time.
They are working on a MP game, a new IP, and TLOU 3. Come on now.
ND will shine in the second half of tis gen. You shall see
Yes, I do.So, you think ND are going to drop all of that THIS gen? LOL. Unless they have dramatically cut scope and hired additional teams, this seems pretty unlikely. Tag on to the HEAVILY rumored bullshit that they are remaking TLoU, "T1X", and that seems even less likely.
Also, their last two games kinda sucked.
The topic is specifically for ND vs IN. Also in part that it’s almost been a full year and no ND roadmap has been laid out or displayed. The so called leaks have mentioned either reworks of previous games, a mulitplayer game that was cut form tlou2 (PS4), and a possible new ip. He has has creative rights, or some involvement to the HBO show. It just seems they have other priorities now.Dev times are increasing across the board. Santa Monica had one game last gen. Sucker Punch had two as did Guerrilla. Why do you think this is isolated to ND and Druckmann?
