Good things don’t usually come easy unless you’re Paris Hilton, like wise good things come to those who wait, and work hard, with enduring patience, to see their effort not only come to fruition, but also stand out amongst the crowd.
That’s Rockstar’s goal apparently. It took the studio 5 long years to develop Red Dead Redemption.
“It is more work than I can actually describe,” one of the game’s dev, Lazlow replied when ask by the BBC News Beat how much time and work is involved in making one of your games.
“The studios work very hard for many years on the code and the graphics.”
He continued: “On RDR they’ve done about five years’ work. It takes a long time to make a video game from the first idea to inception, to design the motion capture, to writing all the scripts. Each of our open world games has up to 1000 characters walking around and you need to make personalities, names and pages of dialogue for all those people.”
Same thing I’ve been saying all along: if you want a great game, then time and effort must be placed into making said game great. Who cares what Pachter says, Rockstar are visionaries.
