Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

inFAMOUS Vs. [Prototype] With Bras!

infamous_prototypeIf there’s one thing that the Internet has given us the opportunity it is to voice our opinions easily. It also allowed budding journalist (or people just wanting to rant) the opportunity to make video game reviews for the masses.

Most are forgettable but there are a few that stand out in there own right. One such man is Yahtzee, a crazy Brit (dare I say Rostbeef!) who lives in Australia and makes review in a very original way.
The appropriately called Zero Punctuation reviews are delivered at a rapid pace with no pauses whatsoever. They are also accompanied by some very nice simple animations to animate the video.

But I digress, we all know the big debate about which is the best game. inFAMOUS and [Prototype] came out very close to each other and both feature a sprawling open-box city with a hero who suddenly gains powers and must seek answers. There are obviously some differences but the similarities are also numerous and so it has spawned numerous debates, battles, wars…

Yahtzee reviewed both games and after his second reviews decided that the best game would be decided by getting a picture of the opposite team’s hero in a bra (drawn by the developers). Obviously this was a joke and no one expected much but Sucker Punch and Radical obliged, much to their credit.

Here are the results. Personally I prefer the inFAMOUS one made by Radical, it is more risky and really gives a good Drag Queen vibe. But Ben decided he prefered the other one, and to each his own obvisouly, so Sucker Punch won the contest and inFAMOUS was declared the better game!

Congratulations to Ben for his fun reviews and props to both developers for getting in on the joke and proving they are good sports.

  3. hey guys
    i have both games and i have to say there are some ups and downs for both games somethings could have been changed here and there but they are both scrotum kicking games with bad ass moves, weapons, and bad dudes
    does it really matter whos better as long as you get to go around and DESTROY EVERYTHING and kill people in the most brutal way <- thats what a game is all about
    anyway i say go out rent/buy both games get some trothies
    besides its all about personal preference

    • Oh I completely agree with you, to each his own.
      Personally I prefer atmosphere and story to just blowing shit up. You have to admit though that people like to compare though and it was pretty cool of the developers to get in on the joke.

  4. I believe there is some sort of error in this article. The writer states they liked the inFAMOUS picture by _Radical_, yet wasn’t Sucker Punch the one that made inFAMOUS? Likewise, their next statement that Yahtzee went with the [Prototype] picture was followed by saying inFAMOUS still won. This makes no sense because according to Yahtzee, the one he chose was the winner, and it makes this article seem rather biased in its reporting this.

    • No error.
      The idea was that each developer would make an image of their competitor’s main character. So Radical did an image of Cole and Sucker Punch made one of the Prototype hero.

  5. they both look like prostitutes but inFAMOUS will always take the cake because it is more fun to glide around a city punching mutants of the edge of a building while electrocuting their scrotum then being literally a disease that EATS PEOPLE

  6. Or at least that is my opinion, and in this case MY opinion is right and any others are complete bull shit.
