The Sims series. Will Wright was inspired to create a "virtual doll house" after losing his house to a firestorm. While designing a new house, he had so much fun with the program -thus later becoming The Sims that we all come to love.

Max Payne should've been included cause it made them create that mastetpiece cause of lack of money and when they started getting more money the games got worse and worse.

I'm pretty sure Tony Hawks Pro Skater was created by accident, it was a test game to test the physics of the engine or something, and Activision loved it.

Great video. Except Rockstar didn't create GTA. DMA Design. The company that would later become Rockstar North. But only after GTA 3.

Where'd you get the info on the Origin of CS? Minh Lee didn't make CS cause he thought HLDM was boring, he made it cause he's a fan of "real world" shooters. He worked on the Action Quake mod before CS and CS was just his first solo project. I say solo cause Jess Cliffe really just did sound effects and the radio voices. CS actually started out as plain old HLDM with a "modern" skin and the ability to purchase weapons. I played the first release. Also Valve never created CS. The original MOD was worked on for more than a year before Valve bought the rights and even then they didn't make it, they just pumped money into it. The game was still designed by Minh Lee and a group of guys from Barking Dog Studios in Vancouver were contracted to help with art at Beta 5.0. CS Source was made by Turtle Rock and even CS GO was made by Hidden Path entertainment. Valve just owns the IP. Finally HLDM was the fucking bomb! It was one of the most enjoyable multiplayer games in 1998 and 1999 and loads of people played it for literally years after it was released (at least into 2005) even after CS launched. CS alone isn't the reason why HL kept going, the mod community in its entirety is. People were still moding HL a decade after its release. Dismissing HLDM as "Not up to scratch" is just stupid.

Halo. It was always the same setting, but it was originally a rts for Mac. They had a feature where they could control an individual unit in it, and enjoyed it so much they went to an fps and ended up jumping to console with Microsoft.
TarantulaDan (10 months ago)
Some of the best things happen by mistake, I'm glad it worked well for these games.....now maybe they could accidently remake Spyro or Legacy Of Kain, that would be great.

Call of Duty's iconic Zombies mode was an after thought and was created during the devs lunch breaks and after work hours. And well, how well did that turn out to be for them...
randalthor741 (10 months ago)
I'm amazed that The Elder Scrolls wasn't on this list... It was supposed to be a gladiatorial game where you fought in arenas (hence the name of the first TES game: Arena) around the world of Tamriel. Then they added in some non-gladiatorial side quests and stuff to do, and soon they dropped the entire gladiator aspect of it and turned it into one of the most successful RPG series of all time.
greenhowie (10 months ago)
Anyone else confused by the Kevin Spacey reference? Yeah, looks like a few folks are. Maybe you'd like to make a Jim'll Fix It reference in the next video to try and soften his sexually predatory actions, as well. FYI big fan usually, this got on my goat a wee bit though.

Can I see the source on that Metal Gear entry? I’m pretty sure Hideo had always set out to make a game where action wasn’t the focal point (pretty sure he said that himself) and Konami just wasn’t really behind it (or at least enthusiastic about it) until it sold really really well

Devil May Cry. Although some people have already pointed out that it was originally set to be Resident Evil 4, its gameplay also came from an accident. In Onimusha: Warlords, there was a glitch where an enemy could be juggled repeatedly when attacked with a sword. Although it was removed from Onimusha, the glitch would later be adapted as an intentional gameplay feature for Devil May Cry.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017) came about because of a hardware error. EA meant to build a machine that would automatically steal people's money but the interface looked suspiciously like that of a video game. Funnily enough they released it anyway without changing anything.
NodMan (10 months ago)
*_Erm... Valve didn't DEVELOP Counter Strike. Counter Strike, was a Modification for the Half Life 1 engine. As a Mod you had to download, install, and then connect to Modded servers yourself. It wasn't until Valve noticed the popularity of the mod that they snatched it up and made it an official game. Much like what they did with Day of Defeat._*

What about Devil May Cry? Wasn't it supposed to be a Resident Evil, but it was rejected and then it was turned into what it is today?
Synthra Official (10 months ago)
Devil May Cry only exists because of Resident Evil 4. They thought that the direction they were going with on the original RE4 project was to supernatural but it's creators fought to make two separate games. Thus DMC was born and the reason why Dante/Vergil and Leon Kennedy look so much alike.

Well, you missed some, like the first version of what suposed to be Resident Evil 4 became the first Devil May Cry and another version (of Re4) became Haunting Ground. Assassins Creed came from a version of a Prince of Persia game that, if I'm not wrong, it was never released.
Neeka (7 months ago)
Haunting Ground is one of my all time favourite games. I believe it was more likened to Clock Tower than RE4 though, apparently a lot of the Clock Tower 3 team worked on it. The game was released around the same time as RE4 which might explain why it didn't receive as much attention.
MTRredux (10 months ago)
The original Elder Scrolls game was supposed to be an arena fighting game confined to a colosseum-style arena. But the devs wound up creating, what was at the time, the largest RPG world instead...however all the marketing stuff for the game was already out so they had to call it Arena. Yar's Revenge, the best selling game on the home Atari, was also pretty much an accidental game in that the guy who made it was trying to create a port of a different game and he ran with a bug as a feature like GTA.

Yup. Was meant to be RE, but it was too different. So, they tweaked it, and it became its own 👌

Devil may cry started as one of the original concepts for resident evil 4, but it deviated from the series formula so much that it was scrapped as a r.e. game and became it's own game.
