    Hutchinson must have been experiencing an alternate Earth. His story of kid gloves with Japan was not the one being told here. Or he was still butthurt about the PS2 days.

    And GitS is a rip off Blade Runner and Neuromancer
    So we've come full circle

    Also Lain got released in 98 while Matrix script was already completed in 96 and it's shooting ended 1 month after Lain's debut
    So I'll call bullshit on that one

    And I'll take DMC type stupidity over MGS type any time, because at least DMC doesn't take itself seriously. The opening of MGS V alone made feel like I was contracting brain cancer.

    And then it got progressively worse.

    But again, not taking yourself seriously isn't a virtue if you actually CAN'T into serious anymore, if goofiness is all you ever do because 90% of your customers are hikkomori who lack the testosterone and social interactions to grow up. I'd give my left nut for a Jap videogame equivalent of Kurosawa movies. Seven Samurai or Yojimbo are some of the most raw and immersive movies I've seen.

    Didn't say it was. Never played it and I doubt I ever will. I'm guessing it does the same Rockstar thing where protagonist keeps doing a bunch of stupid shit while complaining about how stupid it is on the way to do it. At least in GTA games I can have fun driving around the map at high speeds, performing insane jumps and whatnot. Not gonna have that with horsies.

    RDR2 is a game that loves to waste your time with pseudo-realistic bullshit that completely fucks up the game pacing just because "immersion"
    Even worse it shows just how fucking ridiculous and shallow R* game design as become (tl;dr: essentially it's a sandbox that forces you to play it like some linear movie "game")

    It's okay to rip something off if you do it better.

    Matrix and Lain are very different in several ways.
    Matrix can be shown with the shots to be a ripoff of "The Dark City", a movie much more similar to Ghost in the Shell.

    It wasn't the ripoff it was just shot literally in the same set immediately after.

    I love Dark City so much! Here is a long Russian post with many beautiful concept arts and production shots.

    Lain is so good and twisted I doubt Western people will ever butcher it as they finally did with GiS

    Don't tell me. I'm coming from a recent discussion with my brother where I tried to stop him from buying RDR2. He was all hyped by industry reviews praising open world and whatnot while I said "all liers, game is linear as fuck where it matters and story is shit drama of a limp 50 yo whining bout muh ol' times while following horse asses on quests".

    He didn't hear me. Now he dropped the game on 2nd episode and says "should have heard you, this shit is a scam". Yeah, right.

    If Infinitron actually did his job he would prune 70% of this thread.

    Look, games that aren't out are prone to derailing. Not much to talk about when there's no actual info.

    Kojimbo's Snatcher is a straight ripoff from Blade Runner so much that it's basically plagiarism, but I have no idea how anyone can think GitS is.

    Angel's Egg was inspired by Blade Runner and in turn obviously inspired Dark Souls 3/Bloodborne design (compare Irythill to the fishermen's city).

    Every cyberpunk thing, especially nuShadowruns is a Gibson's ripoff, so what.

    Idea (to stop derailing thread): CHANGE HIDETAKA MIYAZAKI WITH HAYAO MIYAZAKI while keeping the medium in general.

    Will it improve the games? The cartoons? Both? Nothing will change?!

    so what was the point of your original comment on the matrix?

    Anyway...

    Can't they at least post of screenshots or give a rough estimate of when the game might drop?

    Same here. There are zero themes in common. Or ambiance, or anything.
