His opinions are gibberish! Bayonetta was unique and brilliant, Gears was boring and outdated!

Bayonetta > Gears, anyday!

I don't think he 'gets' Japanese games. They are artforms, not conforming to your typical Western ideals. Gears of War being a prime example of dullard macho army jargon. True, Japanese games maybe strange and random at times, but at least they are different to one another. Unlike all the carbon-copy war games that dominate the charts here in the Western World. Anyway, he can talk about Nintendo rehashing the same stuff over and over... Assassin's Creed 3 uses a new engine and suddenly he thinks the franchise is innovation personified!

I'm pretty sure people don't play Bayonetta or Gears for the story =/

His example would have been much better if he used Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts which needlessly complicates the story to the point where it's just not worth it anymore. Bayonetta was never about the riveting story with deep characters and a plot twist that'll make you sit down and truly think in a deep philosophical way with an underlying message only the intelligent few can grasp that leaves open to endless theories and discussion, it' about a witch who likes to strip naked.

What a *bleep*ing retard. Nintendo's success with franchises is because of their masterful and careful work. None can consistently match the quality of work of Nintendo's finest. To dismiss it as some kind of racism by the likes of game journalists is ridiculous, the only racism here is his feeling that another, very different culture's work must conform to his idea of what constitutes a good game.

I think the only one showing racism here is Hutchinson. This guy has gone full retard; reading through the rest of the CVG interview, he goes on to say that Assassin's Creed 3 is a "new IP". Dude, no! It's the third iteration of a series, it is not a new IP. Even the guy doing the interview said "It's not." I laughed because it sounded like the interviewer was totally like "is this guy *bleep*ing serious?".

Gonna speak with my wallet here and not support AC3 because of this muppet. On AC3's release day, I'll be sure to play some Bayonetta.

let's face it, most stories in games are convoluted and weak, regardless of it's country of origin

I think in a way he may be right but honestly, the AC series is not all-mighty in any way. The story is great, but not all games are about story. I think about half of my favourite games come from the east and comparing that to the massive west, I think they're doing a good job. I haven't played bayonetta specifically but making such a remark is quite insulting since I believe the game was quite popular.

Dragoon Hahah, well, they're the "Ones who came before" and our creators, but I always felt like the imagery surrounding them implied they were more than simple Earthlings. If anythingm they're quite alien in the general term, but perhaps the term "aliens" is too presumptive.

They're certainly alien, but not aliens.

I think Hutchinson is just failing to consider the cultural differences that lead to each country/region's devs to come up with thematically different games. Gears of War is more to my tastes. Dragon's Dogma and Bayonetta? A little too out there for me, thanks. But you can't compare apples to oranges.

(Then again, the man's as entitled to his opinions as anyone else.)
