Vote for the 1st Ever Developer Gameography Rankings (Insomniac)!



  • I had to make some hard cuts. I feel really dirty about it, because I basically wanted to rank all of the R&C games but I ended up picking a few to represent the series on the whole. Insomniac just makes bangers and their series get better. Spider-Man 2 is gonna be lit.



  • Insomniac is a super prolific and competent developer but I'm yet to play a game from them that sticks with me.



  • Very excited for Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine! Hopefully they don't leave jollyness behind lol



  • sorry spyro never got round to the trilogy remake, even though i own it. without growing up with them i doubt it would be anymore than a HM anyway but otherwise, ive played every other "good" insomniac game so im pretty set for this.



  • We have two more weeks until the results get announced! And we have eight ballots! So if you would like to vote, you have 13 days left to vote!

    I appreciate the remake, but as a big OG trilogy Spyro fan, I felt like there was some charm lost in Spyro 2 and 3 in the Reignited trilogy. They are amazing and the movement feels 1:1 with a ton of smoothed out animation. But some of the art direction took liberties and I just have this hard to explain feeling that some of the PS1 charm is lost.

    Still very fun and well made, especially Spyro 1 being improved with the fresh coat of paint. But it isn't my favourite remake by any means. Still, for $40 it was worth it.



  • @dipset For me it's the voice acting in the remake that made Spyro 2 lose its charm.

    Spot on. In the Frame Trap episode where Damiani talks about playing Spyro for the first time via the Reignited Trilogy, I was super happy that he loved the games but I was disappointed that he felt like Spyro 2 was his least favourite.

    He cited the corny goofy cutscenes as being a bit awkward and I tend to agree with him, but they actually work so much better in the original PS1 games.

    They also changed the damn "why ay ay ay ay ay ay" chant in the Colossus level :(



  • @dipset It's a shame because it's a really great remake.



  • Gave my votes for eight games. None of which were Resistance! Even if I have played the whole trilogy. It's all just so... brown.



  • Voting Ends This Sunday!
    We have nine ballots so far! If you'd like to vote, you have six days to do so!



  • Sadly I just haven't played enough of their games. I would like to take a sec to just say Spider-Man was awesome. Probably my favourite superhero game.

    Resistance I always confuse with Killzone. Pretty sure I've played one or two of them but no memory of how good they were.

    Sunset Overdrive is one I wish I had the chance to play. What did people here think of it?



  • I do have Sunset Overdrive on my backlog, but did play it a bit for an hour or two in 2015 I think and enjoyed myself, just time got in the way!

    I feel like most people will continue to confuse Resistance with Killzone. Both series had a lot of really great games with really interesting ideas but I wish Sony just have one of them a HUGE budget and actually put it's best foot forward in challenging COD or Halo. Not sure why Sony insisted on having two first-party FPS games in the same gen.



  • Four days left to vote if you want to commit!



  • I have only touched a bit of the OG Spyro 1 and it's pretty cool so I think I'll submit my votes later.
