Excerpt: In 2001, it seemed like no matter where you looked, Capcom was producing a survival-horror game. Many people first mistook Onimusha for another of Capcom’s attempts to capitalize on their success with the Resident Evil series by making another game that was similar to it in nature.

Excerpt: If Atari's Nolan Bushnell, the creator of Pong, ever could foresee the high production values of video games such as Capcom’s Onimusha Warlords back in 1972 when he was putting the finishing touches on his "ball and paddle" simulation, he may have given up altogether (well, thankfully he didn’t).
