If Game Developers are Car Makers...
What would it be?
First of all, sorry for the lack of posting. I was still in CT and the BeamNG fourms on the last few weeks, so I haven't posted articles on here.
Last night, when I was taking a nap, and suddenly I though of some weird but funny ideas. “Why I’m suddenly thought of game devs and cars?” So, I woke up, and I started to make this blog. So, let’s have a look about what game developers and what car makers are a “match made in heaven”? Or maybe hell?
1. Konami = Mitsubishi
Konami, like Mitsubishi, had a very delightful past. Sadly, in recent years, Konami have became worse, as they started to abandon PC and consoles for mobile and pachinko machines. Mitsubishi, at the same time, replaced their fabulous EVO’s and Eclipses with boring hybrid crossovers. Also, Konami ruined Metal Gear with Metal Gear Survive, and in the same time Mitsubishi ruined their Eclipse name with the Eclipse Cross.
2. Electronic Arts = VAG
EA, also known as Money-stealing A**holes Corp. to haters, is well known for charging real money on games. This does not apply to VAG, but however, they are well known for buying out smaller companies and ruin them. Besides, they have made big controversies. But on the good side, I love EA’s Need For Speed and VAG’s Porsche, it’s not too bad, right?
3. Rockstar Games = Toyota
Rockstar Games were famous for making loads of great games like GTA and Midnight Club, while Toyota produces some of the world’s greatest cars like the Supra and the Lexus LFA. They sold their products in millions, they are innovative, their products are easy to mod, and they love to ruin their reputation.
4. Square Enix = Ferrari
Square Enix and Ferrari have some obvious similarities. They had some good products (Ferrari’s 250 GTO and 458 Italia, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider, for example) that worked really well, their products are kinda artistic but they are also well known for it’s overprotective behavior against IPs.
5. Activision = Porsche
So, why both of them are alike? The reason is simple. Porsche launched the 911 in 1963, it was fabulous, but it still just looks alike even in the current form. Activision’s Call Of Duty series, even they have some greats, is still making their games in the same format again and again (with some execeptions) since 2003.
6. CD Projekt Red = Mazda
Mazda was a meh company before the rotary engine and the 2000s came, when they started to became better. The recent events of them helped their fame to grow. That’s the same story as CD Projekt had, as CD Projekt haven’t been respected by people until Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came.
7. Ubisoft = GM
Ubisoft have a very infamous trait, launching games that is unfinished and then when they released fixes, the game have that unfinished product reputation. This is also happening on GM’s cars. Still, nearly everyone loves Corvettes and the Assassin’s Creed series, so, who cares?
8. Polyphony Digital = Caterham
Basically, Caterham’s mostly concentrating on the Seven, and Polyphony Digital only produces the Gran Turismo series at the moment. However, they are very good at their jobs, and therefore have their own fans. Also, both are motorsport related, so…that’s too obvious.
That’s it for today, if you have more weird ideas for carmaker/game developer matches, or you have better ones, comment below!
