Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski has complained to Gamasutra that the games industry doesn’t pay enough homage to its visionaries.

“As sad as it is, you’re only as good as your last game, in many ways,” he said.

“In Hollywood, at least, you get movie jail for like a year, and you’re out, and you get to try and make another good movie. In games, you screw up once, and no one ever wants to hear from you again. It’s pretty sad.”

He added: “Look at a guy like Ken Levine or [Peter] Molyneux or Chris Taylor or [Hideo] Kojima. I mean, we all need to celebrate these people.”
