Yusuke Urameshi: [to the Captain] If you even think about stopping me, I'll bite off your head mustache and all! SDF Captain: I knew you couldn't hide your true character, you've transformed into a demon menace! Yusuke Urameshi: Look jerk, give me a break, it's called a running joke!
OMG so there is a GO Vacation thread on here. This thread just never took off like it's counterpart Fishing Resort did. Odd considering Go Vacation was a million seller and Fishing Resort was virtually unknown.
Both games were produced by Namco Bandai and released around the same time in Japan. They have similar athestics and similar island open-world gameplay.
However if Prope had any involvement in Go Vacation it's uncredited. Since Namco produced Go Vacation (Japan) and it's development was con-current with Fishing Resort it's highly likely Go Vacation heavily influenced Fishing Resort (or possibly vice versa).
However both these games fall in line with Namco Bandai's We Ski / We Ski & Snowboard in design and laid back open world approach to gameplay.
