Blizzard is the worst of the major game developers
"Sure, everybody has their cash cows; I’m not expecting Blizzard to drop Warcraft any more than I’m expecting Rockstar to drop Grand Theft Auto. But Rockstar has taken risks, too: Bully, L.A. Noire, Rockstar Table Tennis. All of those ended up being good games, and I think that indulging in this kind of experimentation also helps to improve the “cash cow” franchises. Again using Rockstar as an example, I feel certain that GTA V was influenced by the lessons learned from Bully and L.A. Noire, among other games"

"Blizzard could benefit from a little bit of experimentation and innovation, and I’m sure gamers would benefit too"
"I’m starting to think that’s never going to happen. And with each familiar, slightly-less-good expansion the company churns out, its reputation moves down a few pegs. Is Blizzard still one of the world’s best game developers? I’d argue it lost that title quite some time ago, though our collective nostalgia and fondness for games like Warcraft III has made it difficult to see. There’s still plenty of time (and money) for a comeback, of course, but right now, Blizzard is arguably the worst of the world’s elite game developers."
Ca rejoint ma vision de Blizz. Si on oublie Overwatch (trop jeune pour se faire un avis), Blizzard n'a rien fait d'innovant depuis 2004 et WoW. Tous les devs d'origine se sont tirés, l'esprit de la boite est mort, et depuis 12 ans elle confond "finition" et "qualité". (aka un jeu parfaitement fini peut être creux, là où un jeu pas fini peut devenir légendaire)
