If this happens for long enough, it will be defunct.
It's not defunct already?
Not yet. I hope this will never happen again.

The5thAvacado Ah, I was going to mention something like that at the end of my article. If Sutherland started his own small studio to create a new 2D side-scroller or a 3D platformer? I'd put money down in a second.

How did Rare get stuck making stuff like that anyway? They made some of the best titles for the N64 and if i may be so bold THE best imo.
It all began on September 24th, 2002. Microsoft bought Rare for $375,000,000. Now, they're stuck making horrible games.

You know, every time I hear about Rare, I go check their website, but every time I see the front page, I die a little inside.

Today was no exception.

Man, Rare is such a former shell of itself. So many great IP's to use and stuck for most of last gen making kinect "wiiware" titles.

Could you imagine a controller & kinect focused Viva Pinata at launch, a Perfect Dark that took a more stealth approach and crazy weapons like the original, Banjo Threeie and Conkers Other Fur day and a full release, proper Killer Instinct?

Sadly the talent isn't there anymore and even less of it remains after these layoffs, but the IP's are just sitting there, useless and collecting cobwebs with Killer Instinct being the sole exception. Even if they brought it back they'd need to seriously focus on collecting talent if they want to bring any of these series back to their glorious Nintendo days.

Sutherland should start a new developing company so he can start releasing truly Rareworthy games once again.
