          The devs of most of the games I've listed have been fired by Sony. Both from the Japan Studio ips or from others like Syphon Filter which was made by Bend Studio which has lost most of its old talent. Or most of the og crew of Naughty Dog that did Crash and Jak, no longer there, for a while now. No, they didn't "move on to new ip". Sony just tossed aside their old ones and discarded any devs that wouldn't adapt to their modern movie game focus

          because their new ips suck massive cock anon, that's why, with not remotely the level of passion, care, polish or even good gameplay styles
          these games had multiple entries and lasted a long time, and people want more of them, because they were good. players want more quality equivalent to a bygone era. its perfectly possible to create a new game just as good as syphon filter or whatever and have it spawn 6 sequels today, but it DOESN'T HAPPEN, because people rarely make actually good shit. its all limited scope, shit quality, shit depth, normie fodder focused on va and cutscenes

          Because I LIKE THE GAMEPLAY. Why does everyone say this about games with sequels? Why do I need a hundred Megaman games? Maybe it's because I like those 100 Megaman games and I want more of them? Maybe it's because I like the three Patapon games and want them to continue making more while improving on the mechanics? Maybe it's because it's a series with a unique world I like and I want them to continue in it?

      japan studio was 90% a support studio for other jap devs. with a few small teams like asobi and team silent etc. most of the real developers there left to form their own teams, and all that was left was asobi and like 400 support artists. japan studio was already very redundant as support when sony XDEV can do the same, and proven to have picked better 2nd party titles. all that was removed from japan were the 100s of artists not working on anything

    cause the PS playerbase has shit taste. they only play glorified tech demos that anyone can beat. They have to be "realistic" and fit a teenager's idea of mature. The other camp of PS users mostly play multiplayer games and nothing else - it doesn't matter if the games they're playing suck as long as they can voicechat with their friends. I used to be one of them.

    When your customer base is this limited in what they play, there's no reason to invest in games like Ape Escape, Jak and Daxter, Sly Cooper or even Ratchet and Clank really. Note how Little Big Planet had a lot of focus on community - it would've been irrelevant without those features.

      Ape Escape 1 has a terrible camera, it's really, really apparent when you fight the huge armor and he spends most of the time outside the screen while you run around. Taking down the ufo apes with the slingshot is a whole other level of terrible as well, the game didn't age as nearly as good as the other two games or Mario, "it's old therefore any criticism is just newplebbit banter" is just as terrible as newplebbit banter itself.

        While I think he might as well start with 1, never really understood the opinion that 2 wasn’t as good as 1 or 3.

        • 2 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          2 is fine, but not as good. 1 and 3 have levels that open into central areas with directions and isolated areas to go to alongside some linear levels. Ape Escape 2 only has the linear levels, which aren't terrible, but they're lacking. Most of them have you pretty much go in a straight line through the level. So to replay one to 100% means you have to go all the through. Again it's not bad, but it lacks the layout variety that 1 and 3 have. Also 2 had a different composer and introduced Yellow Monkey into the series.

            Also Jimmy is kinda of lame since he's just Ash but stupid. He doesn't show much personality if his baby monkey isn't involved. Spike, Kei, and Yumi have a lot of spunk and banter with the villains.

              The linear level design thing is probably more true than I remember. It’s been quite a while since I’ve played 2 or 3, so I’m probably mixing up some of the levels. I honestly don’t remember much of Spike’s spunk, but I agree that if Jimmy didn’t have Ash’s voice, I’d probably be less keen on him.

      You don't have to. But part of what makes 3 great is the feeling of gameplay refinement and improvisation on all the neat ideas from the first 2 games. Ape Escape 3 is one of my favorite examples of what a sequel/trilogy title should be. Also 100% the first game feels really triumphant. But you don't have to play them.

                You may also have to actually change the type of controller in the menu

      because sony are pushing it with extreme marketing and desperation. its not a 'fun little robot dinosaur game' when they're trying to have it marketed as the greatest game ever, constantly paying for it to be nominated for awards, remaking a game only a couple of years old, pushing out sequels and dlc in an age where people do not take risk on ips and do not force them unless they make shitloads of money. horizon did not make shitloads of money, yet they are forcing it. struggling against all reception because people just don't give a shit.

          Famously edgy movie games like Gran Turismo, Tomba, Ridge Racer, Tekken and Crash Bandicoot. So many shitty garbo movie games unlike based Nintendo!!

    >have an idea for an Ape Escape type game
    >combines the vacuum stick pulling mechanic of Luigi's Mansion with the apes from AE
    >you pull the soul out of creatures, and they drag you through the environment as they try to resist it
    the thought was that one could drag you through an environment full of clutter that you have to weave and jump through, another might climb up a wall, one might drag you underwater, etc
    just another day in /ideaguy/ fantasizing

      sounds fun because I like luigis mansion but stealing monkeys souls sounds a bit much to me

      How about you just vacuum the monkeys and they go into a backpack and you can see them floating around in there or something? Sucking up their souls is a bit morbid

    This series might be dead, but at least we got three great games. Ape escape 1-3 were my absolute favorite games growing up.

    I remember asking a local store to order the third game, and coming in every week for months to see if they had it yet. I played the shit out of it when it finally arrived. I love that game so much.

      The worst part about the ones in Playstation Stars is that they cost a ridiculous sum of coins. Unless you actually own the Sony credit card I don't know how you'd gain the points to ever buy them. I've been enrolled for like four(?) months now and have 0 coins despite buying stuff from PSN, this is the first month I will actually gain 50 points since they started the program.

      The problem is that you need to specifically buy brand new release games digitally for $60/70 like an insane person or play some of their specific games and they give you a whopping 50 coins when the Ape Escape ones take 500. They also took them down so they're not even in the "Rewards" section anymore. At least with this month's rewards it's some games I actually own.

    It's fun to watch Sony fans only now realize that Sony has always been trend chasers.
    Even in the PS2 era you could see a shift in the games tone compared to the PS1.
    Sony pretty much finished killing 2D games in PS2 era and they started to focus in games with a western appeal.
    It's almost like they how much the PS2 was selling and completely misunderstood the success.

      I bought it when it first came out on PSP, it was a lot of fun. I still feel like the Ape Academy games are better overall.

      All the time since it gives you a general idea of where to go in the first game. In the second and third games I didn't feel it was needed as much.

      It's for total beginners, also it's just another way to flex that analog controller. I think it's a neat little tool that allows the game to keep flowing smoothly for vets without abandoning complete beginners.
