Current Batman Origins Blackgate developer, Mark Pacini, has stated in a recent interview that he feels the Metroid Prime games on the Gamecube and Wii suck.
Mark Pacini worked at Retro, and was the lead to all three Metroid Prime games. In 2008, he left Retro Studios and formed Armature Studio. He even hired some of the old Metroid Prime staff.
In an interview with Gameinformer, Pacini said he hopes he won’t let Metroid fans down with Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate, since the game will Metroid type experience.
“I hope we don’t disappoint them. That’s always my fear, because I think everything we do sucks,” he said.
“But that’s just me because I thought all the Prime games suck. At the end of the day all I see are all the bad things.
“Prime 2 was a blur to me. It was so quick, it was so fast. That thing just went out the door and it was a very divisive game. People either liked it or thought it sucked, and I can completely agree because I couldn’t tell you what that game was because it happened so quickly.
“Prime 1 was the best designed game. Prime 3 I feel is the most fun one to play. Prime 2 is divisive. You either like it or you don’t. That’s kind of the way I look at it.”
This brutal self analysis is not just relegated to the Metroid games. Paacini appears to be displeased with Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate
“In my gut I feel like, yeah, it’s going to be cool. I’m excited for it. But at the same time, I hope we don’t disappoint people and I hope that they like it. We’re trying our hardest. I would like to play a game like this, so hopefully everyone else will, too.”
Well, we’re always our own worst critics, and if Blackgate “sucks” the way Metroid Prime did, it’s probably going to make a lot of people pretty happy.
This guy is his own harshest critic. I disagree that the game suck, but I agree with his analysis of the three games.
