    the biggest problem Disney faces with video games is that they were never a pioneer in the industry, but expect to make a crapton of money as if they were. they fail to understand that if they _really_ want to make a commitment to developing and publishing their own video game franchises they need to invest for the long run and build up an audience and learn to improve on their successes and failures. take what works and build on that. but they're never going to really get better and really get the gaming industry if they just give up when the numbers don't look even remotely like their films or tv shows. but the executives, who never really grew up in or helped revolutionize the digital age, and are old and more comfortable with things they know consistently pull out massive numbers for the company, are just too lazy and paranoid to make that investment. so they just went for the safest option. which is really sad, cause it really is possibly for Disney to make good games.

    Disney is opposite of Sony. Sony is good at games but bad at movies, Disney is good at movies but bad at games

    Does anybody remember the game "Donald duck in Maui Mallard" for Sega and SNES (or just Donald Duck in Cold Shadow on PC)? It had pretty good soundtrack and even some pretty challenging levels. Concept just being Donald Duck "acting" as Hawaian detective who can transform blindfolded ninja and fights folks from pirate corpses to zombie ducks.

    Disney creating a studio called "propaganda games" seems like a stunning lack of self awareness

    They had the opportunity to do good at video games by not closing Lucas Arts.

    My answer is yes. They just don't know what to with it. This mainly because of their short term mindset from their money tinted vision. And with movies, people don't care because they too have their own distorting blindspot, but this time with a nostalgia tint.

    It is crazy that it took Marvel 10 years after MCU started to release AAA marvel games, Spiderman PS4. At same time they had release 20 MCU movies.

    Say what you want about Disney and the games they make but Split second is still one of my favorite racing games to this day! I wish they'd make a sequel with modern graphics and smoother handling.

    The star wars story group is a different matter. From what I can tell, because of their promise to the few fans who actually care about that stuff, the story group treated battlefront 2's story mode, uprising, and fallen order the same way they treat their books. It's the author/ea's job to produce good content on the technical level, they just approve all the overarching story choices and have their editors check for would be plot holes. So Battlefront 2 is more in the kingdom heart's business style than you might think. But these are people more concerned with making sure that Golden doesn't contradict Battlefront with her book than making a good, popular, or profitable game.

    ah yes. sometimes i forget that underneath all the laughter and magic disney is still a cutthroat megacorporation infamous for its reptilian financial decisions and hellbent on keeping its vicelike iron grip on every franchise and media outlet possible while at the same time somehow managing to dodge any meaningful responsibility for its own actions. cool. great

    Can you clarify what you meant by saying Disney released Black Panther in February because they thought people “nobody would care”? As in, they could release a Marvel film on a Monday afternoon and it would still make bank or you you think Disney was dumping BP in a normally slow month due to a lack of confidence?

    They are overreactionary. that a word? "Hey! Games made us a good chunk this quarter." "Really? Then let's give the same division a billion dollars this quarter and expect them to instantly scale and succeed!" "That'll work, right?" "Haha. We're business people! So smrt."

    Hey guys, I like and appreciate the content of the video but just some constructive feedback: Those floating text bits were really jarring because you highlighted them and made them seem really important but you kept talking over them and I didn't know what to focus on. Just keep that in mind when displaying text on screen.
