It might be werid but it's a position I'm starting to take. If the publisher doesn't feel the game is worth trying to sell to customers I have to question why should I spend my money to buy said game. Why should I care about the game if the publisher clearly doesn't? I'm sick of seeing games be developed and not actually advertised, especially Wii games where this seems to be happening at a much higher ratio compared to the other systems. The only thing I can do about it is buy the ones I'm interested that actually get advertised and not buy the ones that don't even if I'm interested in them. In the end it might not matter but I know I at least will feel better about how I spend my money. I can only speak with my wallet even if in the end publishers will never understand why their games aren't having the success they should.
This is backwards. We play games, not advertising budgets, pretending that the budget culminates in how much a corporate entity 'cares' is flawed in logic because the publisher isn't the one that made the game and if the money really matters that much you should be measuring the game budget because that's what makes it possible in the first place.
"Sorry Treasure, I had every intention of buying your game but Nintendo's advertising budget was a few dollars under what I consider an appropriate amount for this game and thus, I have robbed you and myself of a great experience!"
