Why visual novels?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Every game has an expiration date. After a certain time, you'll have to buy it again.

That would literally kill the game. Because the only reason people would buy it again if its multiplayer. And it took a LONG ass time for devs to realize that keeping players on your game was much better than restricting them and forcing them to pay (remember online passes?). Once that expiration date hits. The community will move on, except for the hardcore. 



Here are some things I would do that might piss off some people at least.

1)  Release games physical only.  No digital.

2)  Make all of my dev teams small with a short deadline (a year or less on most games).  Games need to be fun based on the design and not production value.

3)  Insist that all action games be in 2D.  The only game I might allow be 3D is a turn based RPG.

4)  Release a console that is super cheap.  It plays all of these 2D games mentioned in my previous steps.  Horsepower would be like a gen 6 console (e.g. PS2 or O.G. XBox), but it could output in 720p since all of the games are 2D.  

5)  Invite the indie devs to make games for my new console.  It would be a system where their games would get the spotlight and at an appropriate price point as well.



Proclaim that I will only release the games made by my company on platforms that provide full support for modding.



I'd make turn based games. That would piss off a lot of people it seems.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Because VNs have no combat and thats what Platinum does best



If I were the CEO of any company I'd just announce all future games will be EGS exclusive, that seems to do the trick...



Cyberpunk 2077 as an EGS exclusive.

Steam gets bought out by Epic/Tencent.

Make Madden and FIFA as stylized cartoon "big-headed" sports games along the lines of Konami's Power Pro Baseball games in Japan.

Just when it comes to certain games I think.

Make Street Fighter 5 Switch edition... but it's turn based, and Cell shaded... and all the music is a dubstep song that doesn't have any drop in it, just constant build up.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I would create terrible terrible hardware and then buy up all of the talented developers, let them make great games and then make them exclusive to that terrible terrible hardware.
