    jp's Capcom Classics Collection: Remixed (PSP)

    [September 17, 2008 10:54:51 PM]
    Having finished a few of the games in this collection and watched a fair share of credits roll past, I am surprised by the lack of "professionalism" (or standarization?) that the games industry (or Capcom?) displayed not so long ago. Although I don't have any specific examples on hand (and I didn't write them down while I watched them) a lot of the credits in the games go to "handles" or pseudonyms. So, the programming credits for Varth might say something like:

    Dragon Tanabe

    I just made up the example above, but essentially I saw a mix of first (or last?) names and nicknames mixed in. In fact, I was reminded of the demo scene credits and shoutouts where you might see something like this:

    Psi : coder
    Trug : coder
    Wildfire : coder
    Purple Motion : music
    Skaven : music & graphics
    Marvel : graphic artist

    Bonus points if you know who the above are...

    Picked this up on e-bay and then realized that aside from two or three games (Bionic Commando, Street Fighter, and some other one), I wasn't familiar AT ALL with any of the other games on the list. I'm not a fan of Street Fighter, so it looked like this collection was slim-pickings indeed.

    However, I've been playing a few of the games and my initial (negative) impression has changed. Not only are some of the unknown (to me) games in this collection rather fun, but they are also interesting to me for historical reasons. I think.

    I've assumed (need to check) that the games on the collection are mostly arcade games and, as such, were probably innovators in terms of game design. (those that were sucessful probably went on to see console version). So, many of these games have small elements that seem fresh even now. Others are clearly "experimental" (or have "experimental" ideas) that didn't really go anywhere. I've been having fun trying to pick these out...

    (Games in this collection are: Side Arms, 1941, Legendary Wings, Forgotton World, Black Tiger, Strider, Final Fight, Bionic Commando, 3 Wonders, Avengers, Block Block, Captain Commando, Last Duel, Mega Twins, Varth, Magic Sword, Street Fighter (SF1), Section Z, Quiz and Dragons, and The Speed Rumbler.)
