Last week saw the closure of Bizarre Creations; creator of excellent games such as Metropolis Street Racer, Project Gotham Racing, Geometry Wars, and recently Blur. While Blur wasn’t five stars or 10 out of 10 across the board, it was still a great game. Blood Stone, while not a knock out, was also entertaining and could be classified as a good game. Despite these last two games from Bizarre having polished visuals and good game play, they were shut down by Activision due to lackluster sales. So now we want to ask, is making good games not good enough anymore? Bizarre isn’t the only developer who has seen rainy days recently. Who’s to blame for the downfall of these developers? Is it the developer for not creating something a bit more mainstream? Or is it the publishers who may provide weak advertising? We want to hear what you have to say. Say something profound enough and we will mention it in our upcoming Mashcast (recording 2/27)!
