Namco Bandai: All Free-To-Play Games Suck
You know what I like? Games that are free. I absolutely love not having to pay for games. In truth, though, I don’t play many free-to-play games, because most of them are competitive, and I’m not much for competition. I just want everybody to be chill, man.
But that doesn’t mean that these free games suck. The production values on many of them are quite high. Hell, look at Tribes: Ascend. That s–t is prettier than Halo, for sure.
But some people don’t agree with me, and I assume that’s because they don’t play these games. And one of those people is Namco Bandai’s European senior VP Olivier Comte.
Free-to-play games can’t be high quality. We need to put certain value on certain work. When you’re a big company… you can’t take risks too quickly, you can’t make a change just because there’s a fashion for a couple of years; you want to be there in 20 or 30 years.
It’s absurd to say they can’t be high quality. There isn’t a dollar requirement for quality, dude. If we’re going to play this game, I’ll say this: you know what else can’t be high quality? A Naruto game on the PSP. Suck on that, Namco.
