Is anyone else surprised by how far Sucker Punch has come?

They originally created the Sly Cooper franchise. I was six years old when the first game came out. I remember seeing the commercial for it.

And now, an eternity later, they're coming out with a samurai epic in the short aftermath of the Infamous series (not sure if there'll be a third). You'd think a video game studio like them would've been erased from existence like a lot of other 6th gen developers.

And going back to Ghost of Tsushima, you know how ultimately RARE it is for an American game studio to nail - and I mean NAIL - a console specific title that's Japan based without being straight offensive? And being accurate at that, while retaining an original premise? It's INCREDIBLE. If you told someone circa 2002 that Sucker Punch would still be active in the future making more single player action stuff on the shelves, they'd have thought you were crazy. That's back when GBAs were still made, daaaaaaamn.

So what do you think? Is your mind blown by the jump from raccoon thieves to power absorbing anti-heroes to samurai?

Shouldn't we wait to see if Ghosts is any good/not offensive/accurate to Japanese culture and history?

@sanghelle56: How can you be so sure of the qualities of Ghost of Tsushima before it's even released? How do you know it will be original and not offensive?

I'll wait and see if Activision ****s up Sekiro for From Software.

Ghost of Tsushima is the lesser product in my opinion. It's flashy, but looks really boring to play. Why do I think that? Sucker Punch have only made flashy games with no substance since Infamous, and have little reason to think they've moved from that. Honor Among Thieves is also considered the worst of the Sly games as well.

When I play Samurai prefer good gameplay mechanics. Not long cutscenes and focus graphical capabilities.

What has that got to do with anything? Sucker Punch mad the other Sly-games as well.

@heljar75: Same developer but the chances of that same team being behind the PS2 originals is unlikely, team members commonly move around. It's like assuming the same people who made Fallout 76 made Morrowind.

Coming from the inFAMOUS people, not really.

This is what people need to remember.

Ain't you the same person who stated Red Dead Redemption 2 was the great game ever made on its release date?

I only knew them from the Infamous series for a while but eventually played the Sly 1-3 HD collection. Really enjoyed the inFamous games. The Sly games were decent but I played them well later than I should have. Anyway, they have a good track record as far as I'm concerned. However... Ghost of Tsushima looks pretty boring. Pretty. But boring. Maybe I'm just not interested in the setting, I dunno. I would still like to see it be a success for them, though.

I've loved Sucker Punch since the original Infamous. I never really got into Sly Cooper series but I can't wait for GoT. Get ready for alot of hate though because they are PS exclusive devs.
