Weekly Poll: Make Your Own Mission
March 12, 2012
A large majority of you out there would be interested in a Ratchet and Clank Collection for the Sony PlayStation 3 should one be announced. I'd certainly pick it up if it actually and officially existed. The Ratchet titles are some of my favorite from the PlayStation 2 era, and while the PS3 sequels eclipsed them in terms of technical wonder, story, and overall accomplishment, they're still worthwhile titles worth another look. Insomniac Games staff once said that while they approve of a Ratchet collection, they won't be the ones to handle the upgrade, so my hope is that if this is a real product, whichever company is handling it knows what its doing and can treat these games with the proper respect.
Moving on, last week at the Game Developers Conference, Sucker Punch co-founder Chris Zimmerman explained that the company is aware that the user generated content in inFamous 2 isn't really good at all. Garbage in, garbage out, I suppose. A content creation community is only as strong as its talent. Do you usually create content in games that provide creation tools and encourage active participation? Do you craft LittleBigPlanet 2 levels? Do you dream up missions for inFamous 2? Do you share your custom characters in Saints Row: The Third? Or do you prefer to spend your time playing games rather than building little portions of them? Let's hear your thoughts.
