Game development

You are approached one day by a Genie. He gives you two options.

$25,000,000 in cash immediately on the proviso that you are physically incapable of criticising a game ever again.
An unlimited budget and full control over the development of a game that must be released within 5 years. You get all the profits from the game.

Now, if you're honest I think 99% of you will choose option 1. For those of you in denial, I'm interested in what flaming trainwrecks you'd look at making.

i pick option 3, you go back to your old lamp and are never allowed to come out until the end times

Take the second option, siphon a bunch of money from the unlimited budget but never spend it, release a shitty mobile game that has microtransactions, reap the initial profits and live off the interest.

Also, shit thread.

Not that kind of genie pal.
Option 3 is not an option
Money has to be spent on game development. The genie has full visibility on the cash spend.

Nigger give me the budget and the game studio.
We're making a game where you play as Nazis, killing hordes of Bolsheviks. And since the budget is physically unlimited and we got a whooping 5 years to make the game, then we're also hiring the best voice actors and making god-tier graphics that only PCs can handle. Fuck the console release.

Jordan Ward

I take option 2, and spend 100% of the unlimited budget on marketing for a shitty mobile game with microtransactions.

Third option:
Fuck off and never approach me again.

I'd take that money and try to finish MGSV.

Or make a Gundam Ace Combat crossover.

Xavier Butler

pick option 2
take over the CoD team
tell them to do as they were already doing
sit back, do nothing and make a shit ton more than $25m
Retards still buy that trash and I will exploit them.

If I can't take over an existing property then
pick option 2
use unlimited budget to sink the economy world-wide
destroy the world through video games

It would take me 5 years to figure out how the fuck to put together a team to make a game without having it turn into a total trainwreck. Give me enough money to live comfortably without an additional job on the condition that I 1MA a proper game within 10 years, and I'll take it. If I still fail to do it then you might as well kill me.

Assuming I could manage a team and knew what the fuck I was doing, I would take the unlimited budget and make a Runescape successor MMO.

I'd develop the mother of all autism simulators. Train Simulator, Flight Simulator, Truck Simulator, Construction Simulator, Forklift Simulator, take all of those and roll them into a full-blown planet, probably just use Outerra as a base, integrate economies on global scale. Have people develop a huge library of assets, pay extra attention on unfucking the control mechanics that often suck in many games. If there's enough time left beyond this, add management elements to allow players to hire other players for work, maybe industry development too.
Outerra already has a built-in editor, so once the asset library is good enough, players could contribute additional world locations to the map through a greenlight system, making it possible for the game to have a good shot at recreating the whole planet in a sim game.

If I can just buy out an existing AAA studio/franchise and let them handle everything while raking in dough, I'd do that. Maybe I'd go for Skyrim 2.
If option 2 requires me to be heavily involved in the process, I'd just take option 1. $25M and release from "remember, you're here forever"? Sounds like a pretty good deal.

Nolan Williams

If I had unlimited budget I would go full Todd Howard and hire the best marketing teams. Even No Man's Sky sold well enough because of the marketing. Definitely enough to make more than $25k.

Personally, I'd just make a game, the first 10 hours would be amazing, next 10 hours would be mediocre, then the last 30 hours or so would be absolute shit. I'd market the fuck out of it so it sells like crazy until everyone gets past the 20 hour mark and realizes the game is shit.

The best part is normalfags are so stupid they would probably play the game hundreds and hundreds of hours and think it's amazing. Just add some dumbass memes, pay marketing to force them, and then sit back and collect money.

Release some bullshit DLC and microtransactions too.

oh fuck I misread, it's $25m, but I'd still do it anyways.

I'll take the money and immediately quit playing videogames forever. They're an escape, and with that much money I could buy a lifetime of happiness.
And yes, contrary to what the jews tell you, money is the ONLY thing that can buy happiness.

Josiah Powell
Josiah Powell

Unlimited budget and 5 years with no draw backs
Not taking that over 25mil at the costs of never talking about games again
There is literally no reason not to take the second option. You can easily make a billion by just making lowest common detonator shit and marketing it to normalfags. Hell, with unlimited budget you can make anything and it will generate large profits due to marketing.

I wish number 2, then spend my unlimited budged on paying everyone to shut up about my shitty game when it's released, that money is spent under the PR and advertisement departments. Thanks to the hype and complete silencing of all criticism, I have my money back.

I'd take the gameplay of MGSV (sans the open world nonsense) and set it in not-South Africa as you try to liberate it from niggers and UN forces and restore it to a white only paradise.

Charles Rodriguez

I would take that second choice.

Hire a bunch of famous and talented lolicon artists and animation directors to make the ultimate loli eroge RPG/simulator.
Buy the Fox Engine from Konami
Add in VR and AR to make the people who feel like they wasted money on a VR headset feel at home.
So much marketing it will put Fallout 4 and Final Fantasy XIII to shame. Trains covered in loli sluts, buildings with tapestries of almost NSFW lolita that will make most people uncomfortable. Constant positive news coverage on gaming sites because everyone can be bought off. Will do the same for reviewers.
Game hasn't even come out yet and still gets perfect reviews. Wins every E3 award as well. 10/10 - I can make Clementine! 5/5 - What I always wanted to do with my neighbor's daughters!
So much publicity it causes constant news reports on CNN and Fox to spawn. People are actually killing others for pre-ordering the game. Senators being fired for being accused of pedophilia. Government wants to ban it but they're being paid off to keep it legal. Hitmen are sent after me for "Normalizing pedophilia" or "Igniting the Pedo Revolution".
Release on Steam, PS5, Xdrone, and the WiiU 2 for 70 dollars. Clearly an R18 game but pay off the ESRB to make it mature.
Add so much cosmetic DLC that it puts Namco and EA to shame.

I want to see how America would react to constant loli exposure from all corners of the media. Would they start actually turning against each other thinking they were child molesters?

Connor Campbell

On one hand, that's brilliant. On the other hand, you sick fuck.

Gimme option2! I'll make my dream game, and then let the marketing team take care of the rest, provided the genie also gives me a list of phonenumbers to get me started, as I have no idea how to contact major game studios and say, "Hey, I got cash and a dream. Make it true!"

Leo Gomez
Leo Gomez

Why the fuck would I not pick 2? Five is four more years than I would even need.

Also I'd make Skyrim with guns. Not fallout four, you play some generic US army dude that gets sucked into a portal.

Gabriel Evans

choose option 2
buy rights to Farcry 5 with the unlimited budget
market the shit out of an established franchise
collect the profits, plus have the rights for rebound profits years later
"re-make" the game on a next-gen console, and make even more money

Jordan Hughes
Jordan Hughes

unlimited budget
That means I can crash the economy because everything I do basically prints new money into circulation. Why would I NOTpick that option? I could even use the resulting societal collapse and racewar as viral marketing for my game.
