Op Ed

  • Game Informer - Lawbreakers Deserved Better.
    "While Lawbreakers couldn't make it until the end, it's a shooter that I genuinely love and I miss far more than is probably smart. I wish more people would have given it a chance and I wish that it could somehow get a second lease on life. That team did something beautiful and I will always treasure the small amount of time I had with it."

It would still be around and played if it had player hosting and bots and mod support.

...and the mods fixed everything about the feel and gameplay.

Agreed. It wasn't an amazing game. Interesting...but not a compelling buy. CliffyB's attempt to yet again make this about him is laughable. It was a failed product that should have been recognized as such *much* earlier in its dev cycle and attempted course corrections.

CliffyB's mouth did make for bad press (as it always does) prior to release...but these echo chamber journalists need to understand that 90% of gaming consumers have never even heard of him. It was a poor game with boring "Let's Plays" that did not capture the interest of consumers or streamers. Beyond leadership and sabotage, CliffyB wasn't a factor.

I, respectfully, disagree. It was crap released at a time when the genre/market was so stuffed that it wasn't going to be given the time to not be crap. I am sure CliffyB is very happy somebody from GI was willing to write an ode to this crap game.
