Romero apologises for Daikatana ads

You will not be his bitch

John Romero has finally admitted that the bold advertising slogan for Daikatana was a big mistake.

Romero admitted that he had his doubts about the "John Romero's about to make you his bitch" campaign to Gamesauce magazine.

Romero confessed: "I knew it was risky, and I didn't want to do it. It didn't make sense. I mean, there's the whole culture of smack talk that goes with games and especially an FPS, and that was something I was known for."

He continued: "You know, I never wanted to make you my bitch, not you, not them, not any of the other players and, most importantly, not any of my fans. Up until that ad, I felt I had a great relationship with the gamer and the game development community and that ad changed everything... I regret it and I apologise for it."
