Should we organise a funeral for the beautiful beautiful Ridge Racer, taken from us so young (It was only 7 after all).|
If they really wanted to mix up the formula, all they needed to do was take the style, handling and crisp, colourful graphics and take it to a new arena, like touge racing or something. Instead they've done a 'DmC' (or an 'SSX', or what any number of games are doing nowadays) and decided to take the soul of the series out.
I know change is good, and I don't usually get annoyed about aspects of game development, especially not enough to start threads about them (and especially especially not based on just the one trailer) but I'm making an exception here. The trend these days to take perfectly good series that have a dedicated following, and completely change them, mostly making them 'dark', 'edgy' and 'gritty', and almost unrecognisable to that same following, is starting to piss me off.
And Ridge Racer; beautiful, perfect Ridge Racer, is the last straw. Fuck the world man, I'm building a spaceship and leaving it.
