And Bless her for the games she helped to make.

Awww :)

I vastly prefer single player experiances, so I hope they dont go anywhere.
Hopefully theres more of them to come from Amy & Sony.

Perhaps that is an indication of she coming back.

I'm in complete agreement!

If I can be perfectly honest for a moment here, I don't really care much for this trend toward gaming becoming increasingly a jockish professional sports type of scene that's all about competition and where games are built mainly for tournament play and such. I mean tournament play has always been part of video gaming culture and everything, but not like today. It feels like we're on a trajectory toward the whole gaming-as-sport component really taking over, and not just of PC gaming. Competitive multiplayer is the primary focus now not only of Microsoft, but also Nintendo. Sony, as a first-party publisher, offers a refreshing break from this larger trend that's going on that I really appreciate. Stay true to your heart, Sony! And yes, bring Amy on board!

Well we can say that in the beginning it was almost 100% competitive (arcades are about high scores after all), but since coming to console it wasn't a major portion as it is today.

I just don't get why all games must be open world and dozens of hours. The shorter and sweeter the better for me.

For me 8-12h for a story mode (that perhaps I'll play 3-4 times) is a very good amount for a story SP game.

Wouldnt surprise me if her new studio ends up making something for Sony.

Perhaps Sony will make the same deal with Henning's new studio as Kojima's. Then give them acces to the Decima engine etc. And her studio will become basically a second party studio for Sony like Hallmarque, Insomniac and many others. 

Could be (I don't think she would go back to ND) but they could also make a full studio that she could guide on the story part and maybe get another very high profile to direct (as far as I know her experience on Soul Reaver, TR, and ND games weren't directing)

I totally agree. That was a time when I heard many saying that Sony/Microsoft was all about multiplayer while Nintendo was the only company concerned with providing high quality single player experiences. Not anymore, I guess.

Well Every gen Sony had major SP games. The place Nintendo still beats Sony hands down is local co-op/ coach 2 player.

And to those that took the SE survey, I just want say thank you for choosing single player.

Hope a very healthy amount voted with SP.

Fine we get it. Sony is awesome for doing single player games. But must we keep on saying this again and again and again?

Of course! If we say it enough, maybe other companies will listen and consider making big budget singleplayer games, lol :P 

Yep companies listen to wallets =]

They keep doing it. We keep praising it. They keep doing it.

It is a wonderful circle.

Isn't that what single player games are nowadays? Dozens of hours?

MP games nowadays consist of brief rounds that last minutes.

Err... that is what i don't want them to be.

Multiplayers aren't just a few minutes though. They usually have progression systems and end up being hundreads of hours.

SIE should make a studio around her, and basically be their 343, and just make Uncharted games forever.

Yes. Always.



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

I completely agree!! Well... apart from the whole 'god bless' part



I hope she makes a new IP like Soul Reaver as for me that was one of the best things she helped to create.



GAMING is not about spending hours to pass/waste our time just for fun,

its a Feeling/Experience about a VIRTUAL WORLD we can never be in real, and realizing some of our dreams (also creating new ones).

So, Feel Emotions, Experience Adventure/Action, Challenge Game, Solve puzzles and Have fun.

PlayStation is about all-round "New experiences" using new IP's to provide great diversity for everyone.

Xbox is always about Online and Shooting.

Nintendo is always about Fun games and milking IP's.

Now go on and make me some LoD, Sony.

Loved Soul Reaver, first classic I replayed on PS3

I asked for remaster/sequel on S-E survey.

 

@OP seeing the news about the new studio dedicated to Sony and having an ex-ND dev and together this praise makes it seem they may work together.
