Video Games | Donkey Kong Country Returns | Exclusive Eruption Trailer
XBox 360 | Playstation 3 | Nintendo Wii

Playing this game will be against my better judgement, but I have a suspicion I’ll wake up hungover one morning with it spinning in my Wii all the same.

Courtyard drawings from today’s Supreme Court case.
Many have been dumbfounded by the intensity of its attorneys, I just hope the video game industry hired the right lawyer.
I Object! Kratos was clearly within his legal rights to defend himself from the three headed attack dog!

Game Developers List All-Time Favorite PS2 Games

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Playstation 2, Sony’s Playstation blog asked some of the gall-darned swellest game designers around about their favorite PS2 games. Here are a few of my favorite responses.

Stig Asmussen

Game Director, Santa Monica Studios 

Devil May Cry – When it came out, we called it ‘Game Developers May Cry’. The game just oozes style. I was always hoping for a 3D Castlevania worth something and this was as close as it got.


Ed Boon

Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios (@noobde) 
Current Project: Mortal Kombat 

God of War – More anger, personality and pure brutality than any PS2 game released before it.

Grand Theft Auto III – I have to admit that I didn’t ever come close to finishing it because I simply don’t have the time. But from what I played, it was clear that something revolutionary and NEW was being invented here. (Ed. Note: What percentage of players actually completed GTAIII? Do you think it’s above 10%?)

 

Alex Evans

Technical Director, Media Molecule (@LittleBigPlanet) 
Current Project: LittleBigPlanet 2

Burnout 3: Takedown – Because it makes you feel awesome, and they capture the sense of speed brilliantly – even if you’re rubbish at driving games like me. (Ed. Note: He just summed up in one sentence everything I feel about this game.)

 

David Jaffe

Co-Founder and Co-director, Eat Sleep Play (@davidscottjaffe)
 Current Project: Twisted Metal

Devil May Cry – Stylish, fun, and super cool. I’ll never forget playing this at E3 and being like, “Holy Cow! The bar has been raised crazy high and I don’t think we’ll ever be able to touch these guys!”

 

Ken Levine

Creative Director, Irrational Games (@IGLevine)
 Current Project: BioShock Infinite

Dark Cloud 2 - It’s Diablo meets Sim City meets Tiger Woods Golf meets Pokemon. If you can only afford one game in your life, this might be the one to pick up.

Mercenaries – Hijack a tank and take down a statue of the Dear Leader. Hey, you got something better to do with a Saturday afternoon?

Culdcept - A love child of Magic the Gathering and Monopoly. Don’t believe me? The joke’s on you, pal, because it’s TRUE!

 

Tim Schafer

President and CEO, Double Fine Productions (@TimofLegend) 
Current Project: Costume Quest

Katamari Damacy – This game takes me into a crazy world that I never want to leave. Growing from the size of a mouse to the size of a planet is incredibly satisfying to me.

Okami - Running through a beautiful hand-painted landscape, clearing out the evil spirits, dropping the brown rage from time to time… that’s living.

We Katamari - Yeah, that’s right. TWO Katamari games. What, you say? That’s not fair? Well, too bad. I loved them both. (Ed. Note: Also TWO dirty innuendoes in his list.) 

 

Tim Willits

Creative Director, id Software  Current Project: Rage

Shadow of the Colossus – Taught players and developers that there is more to fighting a boss than firing rockets into them.

It’s absolutely fascinating to me to see what inspires the people who make the games we play. By knowing what games designers admire, we gain further insight into their own design process and the games they create. It really is a terrific article, and if you’d like to check out the full list, you can do so here.

Also, it’s really crazy how many times SSX pops up in that list. Really? SSX?

Also also, isn’t it so typical of Warren Spector to need an entire appendix for his thoughts?

Notes

If this Twisted Metal fan tribute ever becomes a full movie, it could be the best video game film since Super Mario Bros.

Notes

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick named world's 16th most influential man by AskMen

Other fascinating articles from AskMen’s staff include:

My Small Penis: Ask Dr. Chaves

Top Ten Pickup Lines for Wingmen (No. 8: “Can you hold this for me?”)

And of course, the ever popular Pickup Line of the Week - “Do you believe in sex before the first date?”

Bobby Kotick should hang this award above his mantle, which is undoubtedly made of caviar and ivory.
