It's too bad that the decent companies that have been around for many years (Atari, THQ, etc.) have to suffer this fate. It's always amazing how one or two bad decisions can completely deface an entire company (*cough* Squaresoft). Too bad this won't be happening to EA anytime soon.

Yup, yet companies like SOE and EA and Blizzard/Activision can make 15 mistakes a year, and still stay around to make another 15 the mistakes the following year, etc etc.  It does help these companies have other sources of income outside game development, but its still annoying.  If EA had to worry about going under because of a few bad decisions, then the quality of their games would go up.

 

 I don't understand this.  They made a few good games, and dozens upon dozens of horrible games baesd off of teen brands that they purchased rights to.  Bratz, nickelodeon, WWE, scooby doo?  THQ is like the poster child for corporate consumerism, but they never really pissed people off so no one ever "noticed" them. 

 

THQ was never a "good" company, they were a corporation that never actually cared about making good games and managed to get ahold of some good studios.  The games people actually liked that came out of THQ had very little to ever do with THQ. 

 

They made dozens of games, but most people might only be able to name about a half dozen that they've released over the last 20 years or so. 

 

There entire method of operation, from just about the moment they formed, was to buy up rights to popular brands that they thought would sell to a mass market based solely on the name of the brand.  Basically everything around here everyone complains about in regards to MMO's and games made using a popular IP; THQ was the poster child for that sort of corporate behavior.

Aw man I grew up with THQ games, they rock...but if their IPs end up in good hands, well I guess it would be okay

Well played SEGA, very well Played

 
 

Warhammer 40k Total war? .............My imagination brush has gone into overdrive.

On topic, THQ made some of my fave games of all time Dawn Of War I & II beeing cheif among them. I wish the staff well in whatever they do next.

Ex-Vigil is being hired outside of the auction by Platnium Games; makers of Vanquish / Bayonetta.

Think Platnium is also trying to get DarkSiders IP.

Very sad news, i loved almost all the work that THQ have done so far and even if the next projects are already in other hands (warhammer,Saints row..) im still sad about its cease, as much said already, others deserved more that fate but unfortunately this is how real world works, rest in peace THQ i will never forget your work.

 

Also im really interested to see what SEGA do with the warhammer franchise...

sad news. I hope a good company saves Saints Row, Metro and Darksiders. I need more direct sequels on those games. Specially saints row. Oh and whoever vuys Metro, it needs a good co-op campain a la Gears and Lost planet.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

Sega = Good People guys. Really. I wish they were still in the console market like they used to be (Sonic is my console Hero of choice), but they just couldn't compete with sony after the launch of the original playstation.

To this day I stand by my opinion that Dreamcast was a better console in all facets than playstation, however it did not have the developer support that Sony had and Dreamcast exclusives did not hold up to the mega hit Playstation exclusives around that time (Final Fantasy 7, Tekken 3, Metal Gear Solid)..

While they have done well in the game side of business, I wouldn't mind seeing them return to consoles.. They should approach those folks working on either the OUYA or jump in with Valve and that Steam Box..
