chris-littlechild - July 10, 2012

Capcom are surely at the very zenith of video game developer/publishers. Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo are the Zeus (Zeuses?) of the industry, smiting criminals in their law-flouting nutsacks with thunderbolts and caressing their celestial beards with schadenfreude-infused satisfaction.

Capcom, then, is the sycophantic servant, distributing the ambrosial Ferrero Rocher and feigning amusement at the big man's shenanigans. ("That city you just leveled on a whim, for no better reason than Olympus's breakfast bar was bereft of croissants this morning; and thus someone had to feel someWRATH? Some fine work there, Zeus, if I may say so. You smote themREAL good. Terrific. Please don't banish me to the underworld. The plumbing's on the questionable side down there,the entire cave reeks of shit. I blame Hades, his floaters are larger than the average newborn, and the great bastardneverflushes the toilet.")

But I digress. Capcom's renown (or indeed notoriety, the two terms are readily interchangeable in this case) is positively peerless. While their reputation is tainted somewhat by some distinctly mercenary business practices (bitching regarding dlc and ad nauseum re-releases is rife), the company's seminal output is the pertinent factor. Before we mock their big-business bastardry like mocktastic mocksters of mock, let's galvanize our memory-glands with a fleeting perusal of Capcom's magnificent contribution to the industry. Enjoy perusing the gallery above.
