What right has Jeff Minter to comment on the crapness of old games? Is Minter responsible for creating a brand new intellectual property or genre? Did he make a GTA, or a Bioshock? NO!
He once made a game back in the old 8bit era with mutant camels and has spent the last 20 years remaking it. The thing is his games aint even fun. Boring same old sh*t. All he does is right rants in EDGE mag, and boast about his newest masterpiece/crapfest. OXM were right to give it a 3/10. Then the only good review he got was when... EDGE magazine reviewed his new space giraffes and gave it 8/10! The reviewer name wasnt listed!
Did Minter review his own work and still couldnt bring himself to give it a 10?!
Last week the xbox live charts showed how badly his game is doing. I think even Paperboy was outselling it!
Minter. When you have a body of work to match Molyneux or Meier, or any other programmer whose name begins with M, then you have the right to talk, until then go and make Super Llamas in Space. I wont buy your crap.
