A bit off-topic. Well, that’s why it’s in this section.
There are a number of game developers who were hugely successful - and then, just stopped making games. And it confuses, and irritates me. These guys could make millions, and entertain us all at the same time, but they choose not to. Why?
Valve could have carried on with the Half-Life series - probably the best game that’s ever been made. They made Portal, and its sequel - but then they chose to just sell other people’s games, instead.
Bethesda made the world’s best single player open world adventure games. They made Morrowind. They made Skyrim. They could make a fortune if they released another one. So they chose not to. Instead, they financed outside studios to make re-hashes of old, short, games that weren’t particularly good in the first place. Oh. and then there was Fallout 76. The less said about that, the better.
What is going on with these guys? They have the talent, and the experience. There’s a huge market out there. Why won’t they supply it?
