Video Game Awards Will Not Show CGI Due To No Man’s Sky


Quote:
Polygon recently interviewed Geoff Keighley, and during that interview they talked about No Man’s Sky which debuted at the 2013 Video Game Awards show. Geoff went on to say the following

“Did we create this black hole of hype that the developers couldn’t pull themselves out of? Some of that was authored by me

“There is a good moral of that story and it’s part of what I’m trying to address this year; to have developers be more transparent about the state of their game.”

“That game, when it was announced, everyone in their mind’s eye came up with an idealized notion of what it was going to be.”

“The nature of showing anything in advance is challenging and it’s a game of expectations”

And because of the backlash that Hello Games, and Sean Murray got for the awful release of No Man’s Sky, some changes will be made with how gameplay is shown at the VGA’s this year. Geoff would explain this by saying the following.

“We’re going to have more diving deeper into games and gameplay,”

“We’re going to get deeper looks at premieres; they’ll run four or five minutes.”

“I think people will be surprised at the depth of some of the game content we will show this year.”

We the gamers didn't invent anything, you lying sack of horse shit. Your mother went into a horse pasture, collected the shit, put it in a sack and called it "Son." Gamers listened to your various interviews and believed them, morons. This man is claiming there was one No Man's Sky video and watchers extrapolated a universe with operating solar systems. Like they constructed that from whole cloth.

Good job, though. I fully support this move.

Gameplay, Not CGI
I have a hard time even forcing myself to read stuff when from the outset it's clear they don't have a fucking clue what they're talking about.

The famous E3 trailer was all supposed to be in game footage, so the theory on this "fixing everything" doesn't work either.

very true. Rather famously, the Watchdogs trailer was all "in-game footage"

You stupid gamers, when will you learn that it's just marketing! When we say "in-game" you can't actually believe us!

I have a hard time caring about this. Putting some untrue sauce on you marketing is part of what gets people excited about games.

On one end it informs people and keep them from getting screwed over. On the other end it makes everyone a try hard critic who ruin the vibe of the scene.

Now, someone attack for wanting video games to be fun and not a fucking bunch of asshole crying on the internet.

I wanted to get behind you because I don't really care if CG trailers are shown and I believe that people who make purchase decisions without looking at gameplay first should expect to kiss some frogs, but false advertising is not okay.
