Why Microsoft’s dragon-slaying is a good thing



Mike (@MikePlantGC) fondly remembers a time when Mode 7 was king, Mario and Sonic would sooner die than share an Olympic event and when a console by Atari was something to look forward to (RIP Atari Jaguar).

    Its never a good thing when a game is cancelled. Thats idiotic to even think. They had a premise completely untouched by any game before. So its a good thing that we now have no games w in depth dragon gameplay. No big deal right?! We can just chew on the countless mind numbing shooters and open world games that plague the industry. Great logic.

      It’s actually ok for a game to be cancelled. Sometimes it’s even a great idea. You’re spending Millions of dollars and after years of development you come to a point where it’s no where near completion? You cut your losses. In the business world that’s an easy decision. Especially considering how badly development has been going.

      As for Dragon gameplay, if that’s all you care about then you’ve missed the point of the article.
