quote: While these questionable claims of sole creation are getting out of hand I do wonder how much longer we are going to hear them. Aren't some of these game designers getting close to retirement age? Or are we going to get a new generation of designers who are going to use this point in their advertising? (It's a new game from the one true creator of Splinter Cell!) Come to think of it, with all these guys out there suddenly claiming auteur status I'm surprised we haven't come across the video game equivalent of Bill Finger.
it feels like just about anyone can make another "official" kunio game these days.
Oh sure, I made one last week. Get on it!
Granted, outside of a few projects where there's an obvious mastermind (Miyamoto and Mario, Sakaguchi and FF, etc.), a lot of these early releases seem to face this. Inafune as the sole father of Rockman (whatever) or maybe Naka Yuji with Sonic (how's about Oshima Naoto? Why, they were both making alternate official breakway sequels as early as Sonic CD vs. Sonic 2, both splendid.).
All that said, a new Kunio-kun game is always welcome news.
