Banish The Logos And FMV From Games?
RiKo
I was playing Twisted Metal last night and I was just like, "F*ck, man" Booting up the PS3, going through the Sony logo, the Sony Santa Monica logo, the ESP logo, the legal stuff, then the title screen - are you f*cking kidding me?

David Jaffe, designer of Twisted Metal (and God of War)


I do really get sick of logos, I just love on some old games where it goes straight to the title screen, and you can choose a 1 player game or a 2 player game and then you pretty much get to play the game.

As for FMV (Full Motion Video), I do like a good FMV intro as long as you can skip it, but i could happily do without most of them. I know many developers hire private contractors to make the FMV sequences and they are not cheap which adds to the cost of the game.

So unless the FMV sequence is absolutely amazing I am voting to banish those and definitely no logos. Just let us play the game! if you must credit someone put them in a 'Credits' option on the menu

Often times company logos appearing before a title screen are masking loading time and are therefore a better alternative to just starring at a blank screen or a little loading icon. More than that though I'm pretty sure it's more of a business decision than a development one. If a company uses middleware like Havok or QSound they're required to put that logo in the intro, and I know if I had a development studio I wouldn't want to have a Havok logo before my game and not my company's logo.

I'd say they're a necessary evil, but they're not really even evil. Waiting through logos takes like 10 seconds... I can wait.

That's true but a lot of them aren't dev tools. I wonder if they have to be on a seperate screen? maybe just stick them all on one screen otherwise. As for dev tools, I dont see why consumers need to know that a certain game was made with Havok or whatever. It's only game developers who need to know that. Those licences are well out of our price range! Loads of games use Unreal Engine 3, but I am not sure I remember seeing many logos for that. Game developers usually are well aware of what games use Unreal Engine just from the sales literature they (Epic) send out. Its pretty stupid that they have to annoy the public (or more accurately - me) with these logos Wink

I can wait but it just seems a backwards step from the gaming of yore. Also once you get through the logos and FMV intro with a lot of games you have a 15 minute wait until you get to play anything. You get a load of cut scenes or plot exposition and maybe a tutorial level to wade through. When i watch game videos on Youtube i often skip forward 20 miniutes and usually the gameplay will just be starting then.

I like FMV because it can give a game a more cinematic feel...I do like to be able to skip them if I want to. The logos I really don't care about...who cares what software they've used to create the game? That said, I can live with them though...I use the logo time to get some drinks and snacks...what I hate most about games on my PS3 is that I have to install them. I like my games to be simple plug and play games and I don't want to wait 15-20 minutes before I can play them...the PS3's a console, not a PC. Yes, I know it's basically a stripped down PC like the Arcade hardware nowadays, but still the idea behind a console is to be able to play games without all the crap you have to go through with a PC (installing games, having the right PC requirements etc.).

Hi Cthulhu, yes some FMV is good. I can remember some games the FMV being really incredible on. I think its a shame that every game now feels it has to have an FMV intro though cos some arent that good!

oh right i didnt realise you have to do that, apart from download games i only have SFIV installed on my 360. I am not the most regular gamer so often i switch my Xbox on for a quick session and find I have to downlaod and install an update. Can take 15-20 mins. That annoys me. Consoles are def becoming more like PCs now.
