the throughline from virtua racing & daytona usa to yakuza makes sense when your mentor's throughline went from outrun & hang-on to shenmue.

What am I going to hear next, did the Virtua Fighter studio go on to develop Sonic R?

no, virtua fighter was also AM2, its DNA is definitely in shenmue's combat. whereas Sonic R was done by Traveller's Tales, who worked on Puggsy, Sonic 3D Blast, Toy Story and many of the LEGO Star Wars games.

David Lynch's "Straight Story" has basically nothing in common with any of his other movies. It's a wholesome family film based on a true story. Everything else he made is... not.

Both soundtracks made by Mick Gordon (never actually played the first one but I can imagine what it's probably like since I grew up playing a lot of Nickelodeon games lol)

Probably most people doesn't know that 2 of the most influential and beloved fighting franchises were made by the same person, Takashi Nishiyama.

 

Also, he's the founder of Dimps, better known for making most of the modern Dragon Ball games, like Budokai/Budokai Tenkaichi and XenoVerse games.

Same director. If you fancy some old-school low-budget sci-fi shocker action, give Death Machine a go. Be warned though, it is DISTILLED 90's.

The same company that made this:

Also made this:

Another example:

Who would later go on to make the Saints Row series.

John Carmack co-created both Commander Keen and DOOM. Two games that are completely different on both their tone, style, genre and target-demographic (Keen is a kids game. DOOM is meant to be for an older audience.)

Outside of the shared jank I have to wonder if Swery has undiagnosed multiple personality disorder where one is a strange gremlin man and the other is one of the most brilliant thoughtful motherfuckers to ever live.

Carmack really only made the engines, so it not really all that surprising.

 

Who I would definitely mention here is Tom Hall. He was the lead designer of both Commander Keen games and Rise of the Triad. Those two are so different from each other. Commander Keen being a cute and kid friendly game series while ROTT being arguably the most gory fps of the time of its release.

Also, Neil Cicierega (aka Lemon Demon, Trapezoid) is an archetypal example of this. Compare these two videos:

Oh you mean the creator of Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, Potter Puppet Pals, Ariel Needs Legs, Brodyquest, Spirit Phone, and Mouth Sounds?

It does retain some Lynchian tropes, like the lady asking how to dial 911.

None of Id's games were the product of a single person. They're all a team effort.

Okay, so, can someone explain to me, please, how CroTeam went from crazy action shooters with MASSIVE hordes of enemies in the form of the Serious Sam games, to a puzzle game the likes of The Talos Principle? Anyone? Please?

Not THAT hard to believe the more you watch both, but these excellent cartoons are both Brendon Small's:

Friendly reminder that this is from the same creator of Henry Stickmin, a Flash game series from the early 2010's.

They created a prototype for a puzzle mechanic for some iteration or other of Serious Sam 4, decided it didn’t fit, and went “wait a sec, we can still cook with this…”

 

It’s not the most dramatic of origin stories, but it’s the truth.

Martin Scorsese, whose The Wolf of Wall Street contained 569 f-bombs and is widely considered one of the most controversial Hollywood movies ever made, who made Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, and other movies of that nature, also directed the PG-rated family epic "fantasy action adventure" film Hugo only two years prior.
