I bet that you remember playing ‘Super Mario Bros’ on your little inexpensive console which you managed to get after a hell lot of begging in front of your folks. If you grew up in the 90’s, you will know what I am saying. Now as I see it, other than my childhood, I see some poorly executed amateurish graphics in the game, and then I see the video games that are being launched now a days and then I ask myself, How much do they actually spend in making these things?
I mean, imagine a huge set, a lot of explosions, gunshots, murders, awesome graphics, soul-stirring music, real looking animated characters and a grand plot. Did you think of a movie? Yes, you did, just as me! But I didn’t describe a movie just now; I am talking about almost every other video game that is being played by the nerds on their XBoxes and Playstations.
The one we are talking about now is the trailer for ‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’ and we want you to do something. Just play this trailer, let it buffer if the net is slow, and then minimize your browser window and let it play in the background. Now concentrate on the sound effects, the dialogues, the music and other things which you can. Sounds like a big budget epic Hollywood film? I mean watching this trailer; can you guess whether you are looking at some video game’s trailer or a summer blockbuster one? Thats what the gaming industry has achieved in last two decades, particularly the last.
As the makers launched the trailer for the upcoming video fame ‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’, we are transported in a world that is somehow bloodier than ‘Game of Thrones’, have more twists and turns than ‘Harry Potter’, epic battle scenes at par with ‘Lord of the Rings’, intense music at par with Hans Zimmer’s brilliant compositions for the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy’ and the production design that can put any big budget Hollywood extravaganza to shame. That is what you are going to see in the epic trailer for arguably the bloodiest game in the history of video gaming.
However, I can’t say that the gaming industry is going to beat Hollywood to become world’s top source for entertainment, all I am saying is that they are trying extremely hard and their efforts are here for the world to see. Gotta be Hollywood to beat Hollywood eh! If they keep going at this pace, they may succeed one day, who knows? Are you listening Hollywood, get yourself working harder of you want to stay in the ‘game’ (pun intended).
The game is growing by every year as the world gets addicted to it and rightly so, the game deserves all the success it has achieved.
‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’ will be getting released for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One on the 23rd of October while the PC gamers will be getting the game on November 19.
