Warren Spector’s Outburst Over The New Wolfenstein.

Warren Spector’s Outburst Over The New Wolfenstein.

Warren Spector did some venting on his Facebook page today, Turns out he isn’t fond of the recently announced Wolfenstein: The New Order game. “Did the world really need another Wolfenstein game?”, Spector asked.

He also seemed mad that MachineGames, the studio behind the game, used a Jimi Hendrix the song “All Along The Watchtower” to promote what he called an ” adolescent male power fantasy”.

Here’s the full rant:

“Did the world really need another Wolfenstein game? Did we need a generically dark, monochromatic, FPS, kill-the-Nazi-giant-robot game?
Uh. No. The world did not. I am so tired of stuff like this…
Oh, and could we all just agree we’ll never use the generic gravelly-whisper trailer voice guy ever again?
And one more thing: Please stop using Jimi Hendrix to promote your adolescent male power fantasies.
Thank you. I’m done.”

What do you guys think? Do you agree with Spector? Let us know.

    even though i enjoy many of the fps’s that he is complaining about i can see his point. it would be nice to see more original games. However there have been a lot of great and original games that have come out (minecraft, journey, flower, braid, limbo etc) it would be nice to see big studios backing more original games, instead of forcing out a continuous stream of brown fps’s.

    I had the same feeling, in a way. I wondered why he never pulled this with games like COD or battlefield.
